I have traveled to numerous islands including the Bahamas, Barbados, Saint Lucia, and St. John. In reading my comments please consider that I have 1.) never felt more compelled to write a review on tripadvisor (though i frequently... More

My mother and I decided to take a trip together. We had a blast! I have stayed at the Gran Bahia in Punta Cana and the hotels are very similar in terms of food, hotel appearance and activites. The buffet was great every night. Saturday was the Jamaican cuisine and that was by far the best. There is Jerk Chicken... More

Wonderful place. Luxurious without the pretention. Food is amazing. If you're needing something, staff willing to help in anyway they can. Minor complaint re: hotel rooms. The hotel should educate their guests to use the key cards when leaving the room. Otherwise, the door must be slammed to close. Slamming doors were occuring at all hours!!

My wife and I vacationed here from 03/06/10 through 3/13/10 with my brother and his wife (separate rooms, no kids). We found the place wonderfully relaxing and fulfilling. I... More

So my girlfriend and I stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe for 5 days 4 nights which was a nice little get-away from the norm. Once we landed in Montego Bay we were greeted by Apple representatives who guided us to our bus which eventually brought us to the Gran Bahia (1 1/2 hours later). Yeah it was a long... More

I thought the water was warm and SO blue, absolutey beautiful! We could always find chairs there. We did not go to the... More

This was my first time to Jamaica and it won’t be my last. The people are so friendly and they speak English, which is not what I am used to, the language part I mean. I quite enjoyed my stay at the Bahia Principe Mar 5-12. The hotel is extremely well maintained and the service is outstanding. The hotel lobby... More
