Gran Bahia Principe.What can I say. The hotel is beautiful. Grounds immaculate. Great selection of food. Jerk Centre is a must. Most of the staff very friendly and can't do enough for u. A couple of hiccups when we first arrived but it was sorted out quickly. We where in the golden club section got a upgrade when we arrived.... More

Hi all Just returned from the grand Bahia Príncipe after a wonderful two week stay and have to say I cannot understand what some people find to complain about at this hotel with the exception of some sullen staff members we cannot fault this hotel. As a party of six,three couples we had requested rooms together but on arrival we... More

Came here for a destination wedding June 28-July 5 and had a lovely time. At first glance the floor plan is confusing because rooms on the main lobby floor are actually on the "3rd" floor, so you have to re-orient yourself a bit. Pass the lobby and go to the outside bar area, and you arrive at the grand stairs... More

The staff was amazing and the resort was beautiful! I can't wait to go back! My most amazing experience was climbing duns river falls it was definitely something I would do again! I went with my boyfriend and we got the suite which had amazing space in the room and the staff was so hospitable we felt right at home

Spent a week at this hotel with my wife in June of 2014. From the get go, we were treated with smiles and quick service by everybody. Excellent overall experience was great. Well cleaned room, spacious with very comfortable bed. The room service was always fast and friendly. No issues there. The buffet restaurant always had a large selection of... More

Grand Bahia should definitely be an option if you are looking for a great stay in Jamaica. It was affordable and all employees ensure you are having a great time. Despite the outdated look (it is a bit aged) workers are seen cleaning at all times, and the room was impeccably clean. I will say that since the property is... More

I've been to Jamaica numerous times, have stayed in different properties throughout the island and can truly say this is on the top of my list of best places. I traveled with a first timer and she was very impressed. The only two negative things I can point out are, 1) lighting outside at night was poor and appears unsafe... More

We stayed the week of July 12-19. We flew Westjet and the package included all transfers, but no food or entertainment (movies), so bring snacks. We arrived at 7pm and for some reason our bus was delayed for almost an hour. Because of that, the bus didn't stop at any convenience stores along the way (they get kick backs), so... More

I would first like to say that the resort is beautiful. There were some issues to take series though. If you planed on taking a vacation without children there is a great concern of why children are all over the resort. We stayed at the Don Pablo section "no children" but right about 20 feet away you can have children... More

Our stay was unforgetable. The atmosphere and people were amaizing. It really helps when you have great food. There are lots of choices of restaurents and the snack bar is right on the beach.The staff works so hard to keep this huge place so clean. I recommend it to anyone who is ready to have a great time.
