Best evening’s entertainment ever. The singers and dancers were amazing. Both the male and female dancers were really excellent. The singing was top notch and The Broadway songs were sung very well. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening.

Hotel's Favourite
The staff at the Royal Plantation make you feel like royalty. From the GM Arnold to our Beach Butlers Adrian And Danny we feel like we are home every time we arrive. The food is by far 5 star to go with the setting.

This was are fifth visit to Royal Plantation as before the staff are incredible they are the reason guests return year after year. The views and food are another great aspect of the resort. The rooms and house keeping is where the Hotel misses the mark. Rooms are in need of a good cleaning our room for the week dust covered the furniture and under the bed .The rooms are all dated and in need of an overhaul.My Wife and I were very disappointed that most of the staff are not vaccinate and some have had Covid it made us feel a bit uneasy.would we return probably not.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to share your review of Sandals Royal Plantation. We were delighted to have had you as a guest with us and while we are glad to note that you enjoyed your stay overall, it is disheartening if you felt like there were elements of your stay that did not meet expectations. Our Housekeeping personnel takes pride in maintaining the cleanliness of our rooms and it is very unusual if a room check was not done prior to arrival. In all that we do, we strive to provide first-class experiences to all of our guests and as such, we encourage guests to speak with the Resort Management team should they come across something that does not seem to meet standards. Please rest assured that once given the opportunity, our Resort Team is always willing to accommodate reasonable requests. We only hope that you would permit the more positive aspects of your experience to outweigh any dismay you may have felt as we would like nothing more than for another opportunity to surpass your expectations during your next trip.

The food, service, and overall experience at this resort can't be beat! You will feel pampered and spoiled all week by every single person you come into contact with. The food at this resort is my favorite of anywhere I've ever been. For the price, this is an unbelievable option. Can't wait to go back!
