Have just returned from the Grand Bahia Runaway Bay Don Pablo 1st-13th october and will start off by saying that if your a non-smoker, don't mind walking and getting up early to reserve sunbeds then you will love this hotel, if on the other hand you like the odd smoke and don't want to walk long distances in the heat...

This was our second time to this hotel. We had met 3 couples on our last trip here. We all went back. The entertainment staff was amazing. Kevin and Antonia were so good to us. They really know how to make people feel welcome. The food seem to have been upgraded since last Oct. We did not have a bad... More

I stayed in this resort from august 29th to September the 6th. The only complaint I have about this place is: Not having a sitting area for smokers!!!! Since this resort is so big I am sure they could accommodate both customers smokers and no smokers after all they pay the same to enjoy the place. That issue apart... fantastic... More

I’ll start with some tips: TIPS You may want to bring: -a splitter for the bathroom as there is only a single outlet -a clock as the one in the room may not keep time -facecloths as they are virtually non-existent -an air freshener as the patio door must be completely closed for the a/c to work resulting in some...

We recently returned from this hotel in Runaway Bay Jamaica. Overall, it was a good quality hotel. The beach is beautiful and calm, one of the best beaches I have ever been to. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in the don Pablo section which is the adults only. I would give it a four star for the... More

Our travel was pretty last minute, booked a week prior. Our stay was Oct 4 -11, 2014. Basically wanting to relax. We were a little apprehensive of the size of the resort. This is our fourth time to Jamaica. First @ Runaway Bay. Not much to do on the island, but this resort has it all. I'd give it a... More

Gran Bahia was fantastic! We were in Golden Club and it was just what we were hoping for. Rooms cleaned & stocked daily. Lobby terrace bar staff were all awesome, they even found & held our lost camera, special thanks to Collin, who also makes the best dirty bananas!! Orchid buffet was great, nightly themes so there was always something... More
