We spent an absolutely fabulous 9 days at this resort. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Our room was very large and well appointed. The food was very good everywhere we ate, including the buffets. We simply could not get enough of the jerk chicken at the snack bar on the beach! And speaking of the beach, it is...

I cannot remember a more enjoyable week - relaxing at poolside, the buffet meals, and the way you are catered to makes you feel really pampered. I truly cannot wait to come back to this location in Jamaica. I am hoping to return this October - fingers crossed !!

We stayed at the Grand Bahia on our anniversary trip. We travel quite often and typically don't book all inclusive so we're not familiar with comps; however the Bahia Principe was a big property with plenty of dining options, just go on time. The quality of the food is okay at the buffets and the restaurants provided us with great...

The hotel is beautiful! The room was very comfortable and clean. Buffet had wonderful food, and a la carte restaurants were a nice change, the jerk chicken or pork on the beach is phenomenal! The beach does leave something to be desired as it is a man made beach, but is has volleyball, beach bar, and a lot of room,...

I'll start off by saying this was a fantastic resort. Me and my wife went here for our honeymoon May 4th to May 11th. We had an oceanview room on the 7th floor. The grounds were well kept, the pool was clean and the beach you could see was routinely cleaned. The one beach was fairly rocky and useless, but...
