We loved or stay at Grand Bahia Jamaica! Can't say enough about it! The entertainment crew is awesome. Kevin, Adrian and Vanessa kept us having a great morning until bed time! The staff were very accommodating. I'd advise people to bring American money instead of Jamaica as we were advised in Toronto airport.

After having visited over 14 times since 2008, we were truly disappointed with the management at Bahia Principe Hotels and Resorts! We tried to book another group for August 2017. We would have been 13 people in all occupying 3 rooms. I was refused my newborn in the room and told I would have to book a separate room for...

We visited in January of last year and absolutely loved it. Great staff, food and grounds. Beautiful beach and Pool. Loved the Jerk Chicken served at the beach restaurant. Always fun activities for the kids to do.(which is always a bonus) We would definitely recommend this hotel.

First of all you have to know that there are 2 sections, joined in the middle. The Grand Bahia is family friendly and the recipient of all the poor reviews. The Luxury side is adult only, and very much better in most ways. I am mostly reviewing the Luxury side as that is where we stayed. First the good; rooms...

Our reservations entitled us to enjoy the upgraded services which included VIP checkin, room service, discounts on spa services and concierge services. So our check-in process was personalized and that started off our stay in the right direction. The view from our room was just breathtaking, we were able to see both the pool and the ocean but high enough...

We stayed in block 18 on the 3rd floor looking straight out to the ocean! Awesome view. It was a great location close to the beaches, and just a short walk to the buffet hall and restaurants. The grounds keepers, and maintenance staff keep the place looking great. Our house keeper (Nardalee) has a great personality and did her job...

Things I liked: - pool is beautiful and large - beach is great- soft sand and calm water - the strawberry daiquiris are the best I've had - most service people were friendly and some of them went out of their way to get us what we wanted - resort is clean - designated smoking areas so you aren't subjected...

The Good: Beautiful Pool Great Beach Bar Good Entertainment The Bad: Food is is VERY average. If you are looking for good shrimp, lobster, or fresh fish-this is not the place. Buffet is average except for the Jerk chicken/pork at the outdoor buffet at lunch. I ate it every day. Ate at all 7 restaurants and they are just ok....

This was our first trip to Jamaica and we had a great time. Overall the resort is clean and well kept. We were a little disappointed with the condition of the bathroom. It was very tired looking, needed updating, and new tiles in the shower. The soap dish in the shower was hanging off the wall when we checked in...

My wife, son and I recently traveled to this resort and had a fantastic time. My wife and I have stayed at 4-5 star resorts in Aruba, St. Lucia, Barbados, and Cuba and found that this resort was top notch. You can be as involved with the music and entertainment as you want, or head out to the far end...

“Oceanfront is exactly that.: West facing oceanview is a better bet and cheaper too. Building 25 or 26 would be less noisy that 27.”

“So worth it to upgrade to VIP even if you are in the Grand Bahia. You get almost the same services as Luxury.”
