My friend and I(both girls) stayed Jan 2-9 2010. We booked a OceanView Room with 2 beds and arrived to a room with 1 King Sized bed. When we asked about switching they said they had nothing available at the time but to check with the manager in the morning. We spoke with the manager in the morning and he... More

Stayed at the resort from Dec 24/10 to Jan 7/11/. Dont listen to all the negative reviews, sure we had some minor problems with our room which were taken care of in a timely manor but nothing that would ruin our trip. The staff at this hotel are a friendly hardworking group of people who are trying to make a... More

Here are the things you need to know about the Gran Bahia Principe in Jamaica. This is a large, spectacular resort with beautiful architecture and finishings - everything on a very grand scale. Looks like a 5-star. BUT: 1. The food is bland and unvaried. Not much fruit and a lot of starchy, tasteless stuff. Thankfully, there are 4 a... More

An amazing resort with equally amazing personnel . The weather wasn't that great when we was there but all the staff ensured we still had a great time. The only complaint was the beach which was not so great in terms of the sand. Excluding the beach, everything was excellent. The A la carte restaurants are good as pre-cursors for... More

We went here on our honeymoon since we had always heard great things about Jamaica. In general, the resort look wise is pretty great. The outdoors and gardens are very well kept. To me the biggest problem was the service and over all attitude. You can tell the women working there pretty much all hate their jobs. The men well... More

It is sad to say that most of the reviews are true. We were there from Dec 27-Jan 3. In my opinion, the owners of this place need to get down there and take care of some business. I honestly think that the staff at this hotel do not have the tools they need to run it properly. We were... More

We were lucky enough to get a room in the new section of the resort (completed near the end of December 2010) and we were the first people to stay in that section. Rooms Room was nice, spacious, clean. No view whatsoever, but to compensate they built the patio wall up high so we didn't have to look at the... More

I will keep this short and to the point, The place is advertied as a 4.5 star in the brochures,maybe because it does look great in photos,but to experience it the place is a joke,poor service, bad food,a sad man made beach and lousy attitude from management on down. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY HERE
