We stayed three weeks at this hotel, holiday was with Thomas Cook all was well with flights although think the flight crew out have to grow up with their trepidation on landing about the strict passport control and all the guns we would see!!! Never saw a gun and the officials were very nice and helpful! We are in the... More

It was our first visit to the Gran Bahia but it will definitely not be the last. We took my elderly (but active) parents with us and it was... More

From the minute we arrived the service was quick and friendly, we were impressed with the hotel and the cheerfulness of the staff. We went to our room and it was superb, we didn't upgrade and didn't need to, it was lovely. Occasionly our tea making facilities were not replenished but that didn't cause a major problem. I think they... More

I have travelled to Jamaica numerous times. This time with a huge group, as we were down for a wedding. This was actually the first time I was very disappointed with the resort I stayed at. The so call "5 star" resort is catchy and beautiful to look at but don't be fooled. It was very big, tons of walking,... More

I went here with my wife and another couple.....first off we upgraded to the premier package which was suppose to include all types of extras i.e. better drinks, better rooms, etc When it came down to it all it got us was more meals at their on-site restaurants. If you go, sick with the regular plan. The pool was nice... More

We spent 2 weeks at the Bahia Principe and had a fantastic time. The food was excellent in the Don Pablo, and the main buffet resturant with lots of choice and theme nights. The snack bar was great during the day, eating whilst looking out over the sea (just be aware of the sand flies!). The beaches were excellent and... More
