My week at the Grand Bahia is certainly one to remember! We were there from Nov 30th - Dec 7th 2014. Long story short - I certainly hope to return in the near future! It is a bit of a drive from MBJ to the hotel but nothing a little Red Stripe can't fix. I happened to catch a cold... More

The hotel is kept clean by an army of maids, but there are hardly any maintenance guys so the hotel has 1000s of details in need of repair and is longing for a renovation. The location is very nice, with a long beautiful beach, protected from big waves by a reef. The all-inclusive hosts an inmensely broad, decently cooked and... More

I've been to a 5 star resort and this in no way resembles that experience. Also, don't believe all of the good reviews. If you read them carefully, you'll notice poor English and grammar. I have a feeling the staff review themselves often. -The Food... the buffet was okay for a couple days but after eating the same few edible... More

I would never return to this resort even if I was paid to go. We stayed here for 10 days and were woken up everyday at 8:00 AM because the maids and security were having a party out in the hallway. They were very loud every morning and were not considerate of guests who enjoy sleeping in on their vacation.... More

My wife and I stayed here for 14 nights late November. As others have said the place is huge and is just too big. Depending on your room, you could have long walks to any of the restaurants and the beach. Our room was on the 3rd floor in block 16. which was quite close to the entertainment area, but... More

Service here is terrible! They don't follow up on their word, you must call many times for them to honor your requests-i had to call 7 times over 2 days just for air freshener because the rooms smell musty and like urine. I have been moved 3 times and each room has its own set of problems. One of my... More

We stayed at this resort Dec 6-13, 2014. It is about an hour drive from Montego Bay airport. As I was travelling with friends we decided to request for private transportation from airport to hotel, to minimize stops along the way and get us to a beach as fast as possible. This was a great decision as the driver gave... More
