My wife and I and 40 other family members and friends stayed here July 2008 for my daughter's wedding. The resort is relatively new and was generally fine as a Carribean resort goes. Trying to organize the wedding - starting eight months in advance - was a NIGHTMARE ! We were NEVER able to talk to the Wedding Planner. She... More

We have just returned from the Gran Bahia Principe in Runaway Bay. Having stayed at the Gran Bahia in Mexico we thought, nievely that is, that we could expect the same level of service - how wrong we were. On arrival the hotel looks incredibly welcoming, quite nice environment, large pool and adequate number of restaurants to choose from -... More

Oh well...... When you travel once a year, you look forward to spending your money wisely on your vacation. Unfortunatly, this hotel did not meet our expectations.

From the moment that we were picked up at the airport- the experience was amazing. A large comfortable and not crowded coach bus picked us up (myself and two friends) and wisked us away to the hotel which is a scenic hour drive from the airport. When we arrived at the hotel it was three hours before check in but... More

This Resort is approximately 1 1/2 hours from the air port. Resort is beautiful. Pool is large enough to accomadate all. We snorkeled at the resort which was great because we did not have to go on a tour for this. There are no vendors allowed on this resort so if you do not want to be bothered with sales... More

We're not long back from a two week stay at the Bahia in Runaway Bay, Jamaica. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is close to many of the local attractions: Dunns Falls, Luminous Lagoon, Dolphin center, Bob Marleys 'place', horse-back riding etc. The room was adequate - well decorated, a good bathroom and always well cleaned by the maid....
