Sandals Royal Plantation – Anniversary Trip

I just returned from a wonderful one week vacation at Sandals Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.  This was my third time staying at this small, intimate resort and again, everything was just perfect.  It’s a small all oceanfront resort with just 74 butler suites so never crowded and the staff is amazing.  You also have full exchange privileges and transportation to the larger more active resort next door, Sandals Ochi which has 550 rooms.  It’s great to have the

Sandals St. Lucia Visit September 2016

I had the opportunity to visit the three Sandals Resorts in St Lucia and cannot describe the lush beauty of this island and friendliness of the people of St. Lucia.  I stayed at Sandals Grande St. Lucian which certainly lives up to its name!!  It is the farthest from the Hewanorra Int’l. Airport (UVF)  but no worries, shared transfers are provided by Sandals.  I chose to upgrade to the private car transfer which is very nice and have done the
