Service: I had a horrible experience checking in. There was something wrong with my reservation, for some reason my sister was booked at the Gran Bahia and my voucher said Sandals. I was given a hard time for a couple hours and completely disappointed in the staff who surrounded me and tried to get me leave the hotel. When we... More

We just arrived back from the Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica after 2 weeks. Our flight was very delayed on the way there so got in very late so it was straight to bed. The hotel in its self was very beautiful especially the wedding gazebo and the end of the beach which was used twice a day. Thats until you... More

Having stayed at a Gran Bahia Hotel (in Riviera Maya Mexico) my wife and I thought we would be in for a treat at the Gran Bahia Principe, Runaway Bay, Jamaica. What we ended up with was a relaxing two week holiday but not an inspiring one. This resort was OK, if a little small, and the oddest thing was... More

Let me begin by saying the resort is beautiful. It is clean and well maintained. The main problem we had was with the fact that it is not as kid friendly as i was led to believe. The music is loud and playing until 2am and it made it hard to sleep since our room was near the stage area.... More

We just returned from the Bahia. Our room was fabulous, large and spacious and the Jamaican service good as expected. As for the food it was awful... quantity BUT ABSOLUTELY no QUALITY! Our best meal of the day was at the Jerk Center on the beach. Fabulous beach and great snorkelling just off the beach. Don't come here if you... More

Just returned back from a week at gran bahia..... very sad that the trip is over. It exceeded my expectations!! We had the gold braclets, i think they are worth the money. They included room service, which is nice if you get hungry late at night or early morning, i never had any problems with it. Free internet which was... More

I stayed here in May 2010 for 10 nights with my husband, grown up children and 21 month old grandson. Grounds, standard of room and cleanliness were excellent. I can't praise the maid service enough, Ok the odd wash rag and hand towels were forgotten on occasions but there was always someone around who'd get you one. Hotel was approx... More

Can’t understand why people said bad things about the resort. Staff was very Professional and courteous. Restaurants and food were very good in quality and service. The entire hotel was always immaculately clean. Loved the trip and loved Jamaica. Hope to return.

Had a great time at the GBP. I'll give an honest and personal view of my experience at the hotel. First impressions Very impressive as you drive towards it. It looked huge! Bedroom Very large, clean and well equiped. There was a slight musky damp smell but after you have stayed a while you realise it is a very humid... More
