Check in was horrible, when we finally got our room assigned we went to tell the Bellman and he just handed us our luggage, did not offer to deliver it to our room. Don't expect air conditioning anywhere in the hotel except you room and even in your room it was barely cool. Dining was hot, sweaty and uncomfortable. Food... More

From the moment we arrived (early) we were treated like royalty. We have been to many all-inclu but never had the special treatment like this before. Front desk remembered our names, and we got a fab ocean front room (21304) with a huge covered balcony near dining too. Snorkeling here was great at both beach areas. Food was delicious and... More

I stayed at Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica during the period June 8th to June 15th 2014. We were there for a wedding.

Great place to stay and great location. Beautiful grounds, greenery, and pool. Beach was average, food was average. Jerk chicken was fantastic! Beds were too small and very uncomfortable to sleep on. I would come back but we want to experience other parts of the country. Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5.
