This is a large resort. It has everything you need on the resort. The beach is good to sun on not very long so if you like to walk on the beach it is not for you. I would recommend this resort, if you want to relax it is a great place to go. Make sure you do the Dunns... More

Had a fab time here, lovely staff, tasty cocktails, rooms are huge. We had a lovely 4 poster bed which was huge, a jacuzzi bath and separate shower plus a large sea view balcony. Food quality very good but not hot enough. A la carte restaurants with the exception of the Mikadi Japanese are poor, poor service, poor quality although... More

We stayed at the GBP Jamaica December 6-13, 2014. Check in was easy. We were upgraded to the Royal Golden Principe Club. At first, we were excited by this upgrade but in the end, it didn't live up to the hype the hotel gave it so I'm glad it was a free upgrade. We were given a list of extras... More

Our group stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe the first week in December. We were in the "Golden" category. This was described as being in the adult only section and entitled us to more visits to the specialty restaurants. The very first day we went to the pool (I'm in a wheelchair) we were settled in in our loungers, chatting,... More

As a Privilege club guest, we have been to other Bahia hotels and thought them to be excellent with service that is brilliant. The Hotel in Jamaica was like on catch up to the other Bahia's, the service was slow, and very lax, In the buffet, tables were not cleared and staff just stood around talking. Over all the food...

Just came back yesterday from Jamaica and stayed at the Grand Bahia. I was very excited to go to this super popular resort with great reviews and even though it is a nice place overall, it is not as good as I expected. Upon arrival we were quite impressed with the grandness of the lobby, it is a very nice... More

There should be one colour band for everyone instead of different colours. The hotel is at a central location and also the jerk centre. It is a wonderful place and the staff are polite and well trained to deal with customers.
