This was our first all inclusive. We flew Air Transat and had no problems. Booked through Sunquest and didn't see a rep the whole time, would recommend Nolitours-they have 3 reps on-sight. Bring American $. The resort itself is beautiful, lobby is very big and elegant. The lady at the front desk was kind enough to get our three couples... More

I travelled with my Mother to this resort Feb 4-14, 2010. We were both apprehensive due to the number of negative reviews posted here. Neither of us could not believe how poeple could be so unsatisfied with this property. I really don't know how picky of a person you have to be to find fault with this beautiful resort. We... More

We stayed from Feb 7-14th and we had a fantastic vacation. We got there extremely late due to something with transat vacations, but they compensated for the lost time.

We just returned on 2/14. This resort is stunning...the grounds are really clean and the views are spectacular. Do not get a ground floor room..the mosquitoes will bother you. The food is average, don't expect anything out of this world. The service is good ONLY if you tip! The pool bartenders were amazing though...very friendly and fun! Do not expect... More

My husband and I have been home for over a week now and our opinion of the Bahia Principe is the same as it was when we were leaving (Feb.05). It was great, we had a great time. Food was good, service was good(better if you're tipping of course) as is everything is better when you're tipping those places, entertainment... More

We just got back from GBP, and we are still full of excitement. Jamaica is such a wonderful place to be...I've read a lot of reviews before we went, and I have to say that there is no way one cannot like this resort completely. We had an amazing time, there were 4 of us + a 4 year old.... More

We returned from the Gran Bahia yesterday and had a wonderful time. We were in the Gold Club and would do it again for the view alone. We were on the 5th floor and didn't see one mosquito, we did meet other guests on the lst floor that said their room was full of them. The food was great and... More

My wife and I have traveled a lot and are prepared for any situation but we had read a few negative reviews so we were apprehensive but our worry was unfounded.

Great hotel, food excellent most days. Alot more tipping involved for an all inclusive. Staff seem to expect it and don't seem too appreciative. We bought the gold package @ $90 p.p. and found it's not worth it at all. all the rooms are the same with basically the same view (great by the way). It's alot to pay for... More
