This was a birthday gift for my wife. After sorting out some issues, due to Air Canada Vacations, we got settled in our room. The room itself was very clean & spacious. A private balcony, beautiful view! We were both impressed by what we saw. Enough room for a cushioned bench, small table & 2 chairs, along with 2 double... More

Having stayed at this hotel, I have really mixed feelings about the place. Firstly the hotel is massive (almost 1000 rooms). This can be good or bad, depending on what you like. The hotel itself is set in a good location – about 1h from Montego Bay airport, and about 30m from Ocho Rios. We had pre-booked a Sea View... More

We stayed at that resort to celebrate my mom's 50th birthday. I recently had stayed at the Grand Bahia Akumal and my mom had stayed at the Grand Bahia in Puerto Plata in the Dominican so we figured since this was our first trip to Jamaica that we would just stick with a resort that we had enjoyed in other...

Visited from Sept 6th-13th. Rained most of the time, but still had tons of fun! Stayed in the Luxury section - rooms and perks were great - I recommend this package. The pool is massive and the poolside entertainment - games and music, really made my time more enjoyable. Nightly entertainment is great as well, and there are a variety... More

This was undoubtedly the best experience I have had on an all inclusive vacation. The food is 5 star (including the buffets). Right past the pool is the rocky beach-snorkeling there is awesome. The sandy beach is up past the outside grill/downstairs Jerk chicken-fantastic grilled,falling off the bone and a selection of jerk heat to your liking. The staff is... More

I must start by saying yes we had some dust on our landing carpet but this was due to some refurbishment to upgrade the already excellent quality rooms. Yes there were plenty security staff night & day but surely that's got to be reassuring, they only stand on the stairwells at night or patrol the grounds through the day &... More

We stayed in the wonderful Don Pablo section of the GBP in August. Our 7th floor room was very spacious, light and well equipped, it overlooked the sea and gardens as requested. We enjoyed all the a la carte restaurants, excellent food quality and beautifully presented. However the Italian was a disappointment, the service was very slow. The staff in... More

We visited this resort for a bachelorette weekend getaway. The staff were very friendly and food was good. The room itself had many issues with it, but that didn't matter since we spent more time in the sun. There are typical off resort activities which average about $100USD per person but not much of a 'town' or city vibe to... More
