Sandals Royal Plantation

Sometimes you want to try something new, but sometimes you want to do what’s comfortable. Royal Plantation is that space you go to when you need to get away from it all and leave your cares at the doorstep. We love this place. This was our second stay and we’re booked for 2012 to return. I don’t see us trading in that comfortable space for a new dance partner anytime soon. It helps that Royal Plantation is one of the most beautiful properties on Earth, but it’s truly the staff that make this place shine above the rest. Construction and Updates: From the last time we had stayed at Royal Plantation there have been a few changes which are all for the good. They are currently under construction with a beach bathroom on the east side of the property. Just in the short week we were there the progress on the bathrooms was evident. They will be a nice addition. Also, they are building a new jetty which will then create a bigger crescent beach on the east side with a dedicated spot for the watersports boats. Love this. Staff: This is where the resort really shines. There really are too many names to mention everyone because everyone has a part in making your stay special. It all starts at the top with Peter Fraser, the long-time general manager of the property. You see him directing others but you also see him serving drinks and opening doors for guests. He truly leads by example. Gladstone is the long-time bar manager at the pub. He’s professional in every sense of the word and remembers what you like and makes sure your glass is always full. If you go to RP make sure to spend some time at the bar with G-stone. You’ll be glad you did. However our brothers from other mothers would have to be Biggs the Beach Butler (Adrian is his real name) and Mickhael the water sports manager. These guys are more than staff to us, they really are family and friends. Each time we’ve been we always feel like we are their most important guests. Biggs will bring you your favorite drink to the beach chair before you even ordered it in the morning. He wants to know about you and never ceases to amaze. And he’s having a baby soon! NEXT WEEK! Always a smile on his face and we can’t thank him enough. It’s a good day when you can start it with a mangosa (mango juice and sparkling wine) in the morning served by Biggs. It was our 5th stay with Sandals and our best
