I recently stayed at the Luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay and would like to thank all the staff for the fantastic job they do in putting measures in place to ensure everyone stays safe during these challenging times. I would also like to commend you for taking feedback on board and actioning issues in a timely manner. Special thanks to Travis for looking out for me and making sure I had what I needed to make my stay a pleasant one. Thanks also to other members of the Butler Team (Garfield, Peta Gaye, Orlando, Rayan, and Rushane), and Joanne at the Front Desk for all contributing to making my stay memorable. My personal advice to anyone planning to visit: Before you make any judgment, please go and have your own experience as it is always better to have an opinion based on experience.

Booked before reading the other reviews and was quite nervous but shouldn't have worried - this is a large hotel in a fabulous location, with gorgeous beaches, good food and helpful staff. Probably a 3-4 star instead of 5 if I'm honest, our seaview room was large, the only negative was that the bathroom was quite tatty, overall we thought it was great value for money. Would recommend pre-booking dinner before you travel for the a la carte restaurants to make sure you get in. Perhaps we visited at a quiet time, but we never needed to wait for a table in the main restaurant and the buffets were plentiful, good quality food and frequently replenished. The staff do appreciate tips but this was never expected and we got great service throughout the resort. Definitely recommend trying the High Seas Seafood Raft (not connected with the resort and extra cost) for amazing lobster!! This moors up at one of the beaches every day and is a wonderful experience. Covid arrangements are reassuringly good, masks throughout the hotel even the buffet, hand sanitiser everywhere so it felt very safe. On site pre-departure testing at a reasonable cost. Great customer service at the front desk, in the restaurants and bars. Would recommend and consider visiting again if we return to Jamaica.

Here is an honest review of the hotel. Ill make it short (like I always do) Pros 1. Nice resort 2. Clean Pool Cons 1. Front Desk 2. Food 3. A la carte-Restaurants are closed 4. Rooms 5. NOT 5 star--- 3 star at Best 6. Andre "the manager" Soooooo. We travelled for 10 days, somehow got covid. Sent to the covid section , where they treated you like 2nd class citizen. NO A/C I REPEAT NO A/C. WE WERE TOLD WE HAD TO QUARANTINE for 10 days. BULL. THERE WAS A NURSE named Rodriguez... She was disgustingly rude. She said she takes her orders NOT from the health ministry of JAMAICA but from some MYSTERIOUS individual named.. jerlene.brown. WE EMAILED JERLENE and left messages, the LADY NEVER CALLED US BACK. WE WERE SUPPOSED to be released after 5 days of quarantine, BUT NO... WE WERE FORCED TO STAY 10 days WITH NO EXPLANATION. The health dept told us to email Jerlene and have her contact the ministry so they can explain to her that 5 days is the MAXIMUM quarantine needed. ANDRE, the manager is also another liar.. He said he would have jerlene contact the Health DEPT, but never did. I WOULD NOT STAY HERE UNTIL COVID ENDS.. The hotel staff is lazy and never follows thru any promises. WE SPENT 20K plus 1000 on PCR TESTS PLUS 1500 on our airline tickets. There are better choices in Jamaica. Stay away for now. BTW, the other 4 people that we shared a room with, dined out with (everynight) and shared food with NEVER got covid, so you draw your own conclusions. I believe the testing was flawed. BE CAREFUL. Bring your own TESTING KITS..

My spouse and I spent last Christmas here. Checking in was quick and staff was very courteous. The room was spacious, clean and very well equipped with necessities. Entertainment wasn't that good. The beach party was well attended for about the first half an hour but the music was terrible. People started to leave. The safe didn't work. We had to call front desk for assistance. It still didn't work. There are no instructions on how to operate the device. The buffet food was lukewarm. Guests served themselves at a time when Covid virus is rampant. We asked some staff member to serve us. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Well where do i start. Travelled with 2 yr old and 16. I wished i had spent my money else where. No snacks or ice cream for kids No food by pool We arrived and reception was slow and staff was rude. The place is huge we was given no map and had no idea where to go. Arrived to room it absolutely stunk of damp and sewage! There was one big bed a small sofa bed and a cot we walked into bathroom which was vile. I walked straight out and to reception demanding a different room. When got our new room it was based on 2 adults sharing. There was 4 of us. My 16 yr old slept on a bare sofa no blankets and my 2 year old had to sleep in with us. There was no tea or coffee facilities which there was meant to be. No iron took 3 days to get one. There was no menu to any bars so you had no choice! Also we had 5 visits to al a carte restaurant what a waist of time. We went to knife starter deep fried dried chicken wings couldn’t eat why fry when says grilled also no drink menu and no kids menus. Then most restaurants wouldn’t take kids and 2 that did no kids menus ! Fridge in room There was 4 soft drinks in fridge that go asap. To get a refill is once a day ! So 4 drinks to a room once a day ! My 2 year old slept in our bed as they didn’t provide a cot My 6ft 2 16 yr old son slept on a crappy mattress no sheets pillows nothing! No children entertainment for youngsters! As my 2 year old had nothing My 16 year old wanted to come home after 5 days. You get no information about resort ! Also if you don’t tip staff they avoid you ! I spent so much tipping! U cant do everyone! Also shop on site in a rip off ! I ran out of nappies 2 days before home it cost £20 yes 28usd for a pack if nappies! £5 pringles small pack £3.00 twix Food - raw cold and dangerous if you have allergies avoid! I had diarrhoea for a week which ruined it ! Several reactions as no information on food Be careful with food ! Pool my husband cut his foot in pool when looked we pulled 23 tiles up from pool bed ! Life guArd brushed it off. They don’t care. If you don’t tip staff they are rude and dont put effort in. So expect to tip everytime for a decent service! I cried with this holiday and how we paid 7500 gbp ! I could not wait to get home. The tui rep offered £500 refund which i refused. She also advised this is the worst hotel she works in as too many complaints! We went on dolphin experience booked direct another rip off ! You pay to get in and then want 140 usd for pics after 350 usd for 2 ! Just a hole let down O and locals or people smoking weed around the pool ! Which i left on several occasions as my son has bad chest… AVOID There is so muchmore
