Sandals Royal Plantation Review: Insights from our Sandals Travel Experts

When you’re not ordering room service from personal butlers that await your every beck and call, the gourmet chefs of Sandals Royal Plantation’s 5-star restaurants have tailored international menus full of traditional dishes and creative cuisine to delight your taste buds. Some of our favorite memories at the Royal Plantation were the afternoons spent on the Tea Terrace, a quaint tea bar overlooking the Caribbean Sea that offers guests a traditional English experience every day at 4:00pm. Notably, this all inclusive luxury resort is also home to C Bar, Jamaica’s only champagne and caviar bar featuring an impressive wine selection.

Tucked between two idyllic private coves, the Sandals Royal Plantation resort is the pinnacle of by-the-beach tranquility. Spend summer days basking in the Caribbean sun underneath the shade of an exotic tiki hut, or enjoy a leisurely swim in the resort’s heated pools in the cooler winter months. As night falls, sit back and relax while you experience the sights and sounds of authentic island entertainment and top-rate performers.
