We arrived at this beautiful hotel and enjoyed ourselves 100%. We relaxed on the beach and snorkelled in the ocean. This hotel is gorgeous without a doubt. There is a giant chess set you can play outdoors. Fun pool games during the day and fun nightlife and live shows in the evenings. One thing that is important is when you... More

My first ever all-inclusive, I went for my niece's wedding. We stayed 7 nights. We arrived after midnight, and my niece's room was not prepared for new guests, it was quite dirty. The staff were very accommodating in getting it ready, but no AC meant a room change. Kamesha in guest services went above and beyond to make sure my... More

My husband and I had miles that were about to expire from Southwest and decided randomly to go to Jamaica. I searched and searched for an all inclusive resort and glad I found this one. I was nervous having read some of the reviews but this resort exceeded our expectations! We stayed at the Don Pablo side and it was... More

Took the family (myself, wife, 3 kids (7yo, 6yo, 9 month) for a vacation from 8/12/15 to 8/22/15. Had some minor issues but overall had a great vacation. We stayed at Grand Bahia in Mexico last year (which we loved) and enjoyed this one even more. Pros: The people working the resort are great. Never met one that did not... More

Firstly, we flew with Thomas Cook. Brand new Airbus A330. Great we thought. Turns out you have to pay for the on-board entertainment, they run out of food, it is freezing on board, they don't carry enough blankets and the stewards are rude. But I digress from reviewing the hotel. Check in was dreadful. Massive great lobby. People everywhere, staff... More

My Husband and I recently returned from a trip to Jamaica's, Grand Bahia Principe to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary from July 12 - 19. We decided that to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary we would book an all inclusive vacation for 7 days without our children and were looking for a place that would offer 4+ star ratings; good...

Firstly the service was top quality from the start where we entered into the Orchid buffet and were greeted by Marvin who always had a smile and served us to the highest standard. Also down at the entertainment team Antonia was very entertaining and ran the teens club which is a success and provided lots of entertainment from playing connect... More

Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica- Very disappointed with this hotel. Staff here should visit the Bahia in Mexico to find out how to treat guests correctly. The lobby bar stops serving drinks at 11pm and the staff then turn off all the lights to get you to leave. In between breakfast lunch and dinner set times it is very difficult to... More

We stayed here for a fortnight in August 2015 and were very impressed. Once you get used to the Jamaican pace of life (check in is very slow!), it is a place where you really can not ask for more. It is clean and well maintained, the food is good and the all inclusive package really is all inclusive. If... More

The resort is nice and pleasant. The only problem I had with the hotel was I had to request Face towels every evening. The cleaning crew would pick up the dirty face towels but wouldn't replace it with a clean one. Will not bring Ice to the room. However I really enjoyed the Entertainment group at this resort. Vanessa will... More
