Grand Bahia Principe -- Input Requested? Drinks, Food, etc

Hello, I am considering the Grand Bahia in Jamaica for spring break. If you have been there can you tell me about the food and drink? I am concerned will we be able to get dinner reservations? Also, are frozen drinks included and non alcoholic frozen drinks? I read that they only serve bottom shelf rum and beer. Is that true?

Huge place for people want a low price resort. All drinks included but no premium liquor included in the all inclusive package. Food is what you would expect for an all inclusive resort. If you go knowing all this, you should have a great time.

Would you consider the Palladium to be a much better choice?

I went expecting a 4 star and that is what I got. We actually loved the food (especially lunch).

Loved the pool, loved the beach. Nothing was more that a 10 minute walk so it really isn't that big.

We liked to wander around.

I loved the resort and would go back, but don't want to travel the hour from the airport.

Palladium just like GBP, just average and nothing special.

Frozen drinks available at all bars are Pina Colada & Strawberry Daiquiris. You can usually choose btwn Appleton light or dark rum. Miami Vice is combo with Blue Curacao on the top-yum yum. Red Stripe is the only beer, but I think it's better than most US domestics. Bars open 11am-2am I believe.

Food is very good in general. Reminded me of a cruise. For example for breakfast u can have lox n bagels, omelette, caviar, Danish, etc,etc
