5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Beautiful resort with gorgeous manicured grounds. Everything was amazing.the beach was in walking distance and absolutely breathtaking. The only thing that stood out a little, was our bathroom -which needed a little fixing up -yet it was still no big deal. Overall it was a fantastic experience. We absolutely recommend this beautiful resort to anyone and would definitely come back.

We are leaving here today.. The resort is wonderful in many ways but overall it can't be rated at more then 3.5.. Always some little thing that just drove you crazy.. No towels at times for the rooms which is a absolute NO NO.... Food was mostly good tasting but to many times it was cool or cold.. If you... More

Not a 5 star by a long stretch. This 8 year old resort gives the look and feel of a much older property. It is very much in need of a lot of TLC to make it a 5 Star again. Once we recovered our bags from another area of the hotel, thanks to our bus driver, we were taken... More

Just got home from the Grand Bahia and had a great time! We've stayed at a few all inclusives and really felt like there wasn't much we missed staying here rather than spending a little extra.

My wife and I vacationed at the Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica from Jan. 26 - Feb. 5, 2015. For what was advertised as a 5 star, and compared to other countries vacationed in the Caribbean, I would think it was closer to a 3.5 star. Our flight was with WestJet and there were no delays. We arrived in Jamaica on... More

My husband and I went to the Grand Bahia in january for a belated honeymoon. We have 3 children at home, so it was an exciting getaway for just the two of us. We booked this hotel, thinking it would be a luxurious vacation as the hotel rated a 4-5 stars. The grounds were beautiful and there are plenty of... More

Upon arrival my children proclaimed, "You didn't tell us we were living in a castle for a week." It is a beautiful and clean resort. The beach, once you find it, is nice and goes on and on. It is important to note that the "beach" right next to the pool is not the beach. We were really nervous when... More

This is a beautiful resort from the outside. The pool, the beach, the common areas are all pretty great. The food is better than average for an All Inclusive. But, let's talk about the service. I would like to implore Don Pablo (whose name and face are everywhere in the resort - guess he fancies himself some kind of Donald... More

I would actually rate this resort as a 4.5 star...it was that good!! I had emailed a few requests to the hotel ahead of time and all of my requests were met.

One of the first things that you realise at the hotel is that they operate a three tier system - Privilege, which is time share, Golden and the rest of us plebs. The first two have their own pool area and the only decent bit of beach where the rest of us cannot go ( the beach where we are... More
