The staff worked very hard but for the size of the resort, ALL areas were understaffed.The a la carte restaurants were beautiful and had excellent food but were unbearable because they were not air conditioned. The lobby bar closed at 11:00 so if you wanted a drink after 11:00 you had to walk all the way over to a separate... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were amazing and the Beach/pool were great. The only issues we had were not understanding that the A/C would not work unless patio door was fully closed and the prepaid phone cards were expensive. We paid $20.00 for a twenty minute card but only got 12 minutes of phone calls.

Make sure to upgrade to a room that faces the bay on the higher floors it's a beautiful postcard image. Almost unrealistic it's so pretty. If you are planning on staying with small children, know that all the entertainment at night time is in a dark open courtyard surrounded by bars and the nightclub and stray cats. It also requires...

Had an excellent time except when we wanted the coffee we were expecting. The day trips were exceptional. We did the Bob Marley tour and the Dunns River Party Tour. Food was excellent as well as the service. All the staff there were very helpful and friendly. Will go again after checking out a few other Caribbean country resorts.

Service and people were exceptional. Lots of little things that could be improved but they got all the big stuff right - overall a great trip. Pack your toiletries and sunscreen because you do not want to buy them on-site. Broad range of ages of guests/ abilities. Book service level 'gold' for add-ons like in room safe, minibar, and some...

We left the kids at home with our husbands because we needed some sun after the long Toronto winter. The Grand Bahia did not disappoint! If you can opt for the Don Pablo collection, it is worth every penny. All staff bent over backwards for us! The WiFi lounge alone is worth the extra money. The restaurants provided lots of... More

The service was excellent, staff were wonderful, loved the room overlooking the beach area, location was great. loved the weather (no snow..lol). Need to have live bands playing or "Jamaican" music playing throughout the resort/beach area to get everyone in the "mood".
