This was one of many trips to Jamaica so I did know what to expect from this destination. Check in- Very smooth and fast with no credit card hold required. Room- Upgraded to an oceanview without asking, only complaint was that there was water all over the floor from a malfunctioning icebox, called the front desk but no one ever... More

Unimaginative concrete facade. largely pleasant staff but except for front desk, impossibly slow service response. Appallingly bad conference hall amenities. Eg lighting very poor. Not adjustable and what bulbs did exist - many blown. Bad acoustics. Fake multicultural cuisine, 'jamon Serrano ' is thin sliced regular smoked ham in a Spanish hotel and specialty restaurant, waiting staff will tell you... More

We just returned from a weeks stay to celebrate my brother's 50th birthday! We enjoyed this resort a great deal. The food was amazing and the staff very pleasant. We did not do a room upgrade as the hotel was very booked but ended up with a beautiful view (room 22307 -Don Pablo pool and ocean view) My brother upgraded... More

This is our third trip to a Grand Bahia Resort (Punta Cana, Riviera Maya, and Jamaica). This one was just as awesome as the other 2! Ignore the bad reviews, for the most part everything we experienced was great! There was a little mix up with our room when we first checked in, but by the next day, thanks especially... More

This was our second time at GBP Runaway Bay Jamaica and third Privilege Club Experience. Travelled with husband and 7 year old son. We love this resort. My 7 year old loved the Kid's Club. We used their babysitting service twice and it was very reliable and very nice to have an adult only experience. We were mostly by the... More

Not my first time at a Gran Bahia Prinicpe Chain. It's relatively smaller than my other experience from Dominican Republic. Pros: -Well Kept Facilities, Nice decor in Rooms, nicely decorated and designed Bathrooms. Beds were decent in regard to the mattress. Furniture in the rooms were very nice. -Housekeeping was respectful of the "Do not disturb" signs. -Salespeople for the... More

I took a very expensive trip to this hotel. Visually the hotel was stunning! The Rooms were not uniformed, a number of items missing- no kettle, percolator, lamps, fridge not working. Toilet forever overflowing, lack of towels for the rooms and poolside. Food tepid, long waiting for toast with the 2 archaic toasters. A number of the female table staff... More

I've been to a few other GBP resorts and I must say that this was the worst one that I have experienced. My wife had sent a few email requests about 1 month ago and was told that they would take care of it. When we got there nothing was honoured. Most of the employees at this resort should be... More

Just got back from the above hotel - what a relief. We have stayed at the same chain in Mexico 5 times and decided to try this one - boy did we make a wrong choice. This is the Americans hotel version of brits abroad in Ibiza. Full of drunk, loud, ignorant americans who seemed to think it was there... More
