Be prepared to surround yourself in a Barbie playhouse type of hot pink décor in the lobby. * Overall, the food and service was good. * The beach area is nice (not rocky). * The grounds are well maintained and in good condition. I gave this an average rating as the property is just OK when compared to other resorts... More

We thought the facilities and staff were absolutely wonderful! The Japenese restaurant was our favorite, and we loved the guacamole and chips and jerk chicken at the snack bar! We had the Golden Club package (some kind of upgrade our travel agent just booked with Delta tours) and were thrilled with it!!! We got a private ride to the resort... More

I stayed at Grand Bahia Runaway Bay from Jan 13-20/15. There were 6 of us going, requiring 3 rooms. At time of booking our vacation we had requested a higher floor, not ground level, and the 3 rooms together. Well we got there and our rooms were on ground floor and not together. Not a good start but figured we'd... More

When I booked this resort and read the reviews I was concerned. I went in with an open mind, we have stayed at many resorts in different countries but this was our first trip to Jamaica. There is not one thing that I could complain about. The hotel is clean, well kept and probably the least musty smelling hotel I... More

I stayed at this hotel in December 2014 and had a wonderful time. Check in was quick and easy, the front desk agent was very friendly. I was then taken to my room by a bellman who was very professional. The room was spacious, clean and properly stocked. The views from my room were breathtaking with beautiful ocean views (I... More

This was our 8th Caribbean trip and 3rd to Jamaica.We got a decent deal on this resort and for the money we paid, it was worth it. Our room was in block 23, 2nd floor. While many would say this was far from everything, we did not mind it at all. We'd leave the room in the morning after breakfast,... More
