Sandals has made an international name for itself as one of the finest purveyors of all-inclusive resorts in the entire world. To be sure, the chain’s many properties are all gorgeous, offering untold amenities to go along with the first-class service that the brand has become known for. However, even among their line, there are some real standouts, ones that can stand toe-to-toe with some of the finest resorts in the entire world.
With that in mind, we decided to poll travelers from all over in order to determine which of Sandals’ many all-inclusive resorts is the best. We were surprised to discover that there was one that stands head and shoulders above the rest, and it’s called Sandals Royal Plantation.
This idyllic all-inclusive resort is situated in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, along a beautiful stretch of sand and surf. But while the natural environment surrounding this resort is a real crowd pleaser, the facilities themselves are absolutely exceptional. As you’ll see in the 22 pictures that follow, there’s a reason that so many have chosen this one resort as the best among Sandals’ impressive line.
So, come take a tour with us of Sandals Royal Plantation with us. See for yourself why it’s so amazing!
