Our Opinion

One of our more popular all inclusive resorts in Jamaica, the Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica is a good choice for couples, singles and families looking for a high quality all inclusive resort. The junior suites are ample in size and the large free form pool is impressive. The beach here is semi man made which may be a turn off for some, but otherwise this is a great all inclusive resort in Jamaica.

Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica is set in an unspoilt area of Jamaica rich with tropical surroundings and beautiful turquoise waters. The resort boasts four lake-type swimming pools in addition to five restaurants and six bars. All rooms are Junior Suites and come with numerous amenities to add to the relaxation of an already sublime vacation.

Location: Directly located on a beautiful private beach in Runaway Bay. Approximately 90 minutes from Montego Bay airport.

A Grand Time

Just arrived back home to Chicago from a week at the Bahia with friends. In the weeks leading up to our vacation the reviews had us fearful of what we might be getting ourselves in to. So glad we didn't listen! What a great time we had. The ala carte restaurants were top notch and offered a lot of variety. Even the buffets were different from day to day. Loved the jerk chicken at the Piscis by the beach. The nightly shows highlighted the true talents of the performers. The Michael Jackson Show was a definite favorite. But the true surprise for us were the people. We had heard mixed reviews on the hospitality but couldn't have been more shocked. Gerrick, my main man at the Hibyscus pool bar, was always ready with a smile, a drink and a conversation for us. Gonna miss that guy. Mario, "the shortest guy on property," kept us busy with poolside activities. Alycia was our housekeeper and we always came back to a freshly made room at the end of our day. Other wait staff and front desk personnel were accommodating. The projects are ongoing there. We saw painters and landscapers and maintenance always hard at work but stopping for a smile and a friendly greeting as we passed. Truly a great week. For those looking for complaints, here are a few. It rained, slightly, every day but ALL the resorts in Jamaica felt that. There were a few times the bar ran low on liquor, which might have been a blessing for me. And for those worried about critters...we saw one crab on the beach, a single lizard the size of my finger on the sidewalk and zero bees. Oh, and a kitty cat appeared from time to time. Reports otherwise are highly exaggerated. And the Luxury version next door is boring and uneventful. Stay at the Grand.Come see for yourself and make your own decisions. Remember that you're on vacation and it's supposed to be fun.

Time of my life!

I flew a few weeks ago. My Fiancee had to pretty much drag me home by my ear. The staff there are so great! They are the nicest, most accomidating and fun people I've ever met. They all went above the call of duty. It would be wrong of me to not highlight each and every person that made mine and my fiancee's trip as great as it was. So here it goes to Jerome when we got there we were fumbling around looking for where to go. Right away he brought us over and made us some of the best drinks I've ever had. Every time we came up to the bar or saw him walking around he put a smile on our face.Timoy did the best showmanship making drinks I've ever seen. Every time you put on your sunglasses it was show time and Stephanie and I loved it. As well I got to experience drinks I've never heard of.Colin every time he greeted us was with a smile on his face it was contagious. His drinks were fantastic as well.Now to the entire entertainment team. Me and Stephanie miss you all so much. Romario you were great and always made our days so much fun going above and beyond the call of duty. Lushane you went above and beyond the call of duty. You were always smiling and making our day that much brighter. Kevin I'm going to practice to beat you perhaps next time in beer chugging. Thanks again for teaching me bar tricks. Mytheline my bestie learning dominos was a blast. Hopefully we can play next time. Topal girl you made our stay fun and hilarious. Cyril dude those dance moves...priceless. Kungfu panda I'm going to beat you in croquet next time. Brandon your jokes were hilarious. Although I don't remember you doing the race like I did lol. We miss you all so much hopefully we will see you all in two years.To the managers please note everyone I mentioned. And get better beds on the family side please.

food poor

Room had leak from AC unit. No free WIFI had to pay for safe to store valuables in the room. Its a time share so staff is always asking you to buy. Beach is not good. Had breakfast and egg shell was in the scramble eggs. Food was cold and had no taste. No good shopping and shops that are there are very expensive.

Great first vacation

My husband and I just got back a week ago from this resort and we had a amazing time! I was a little worried about going because of the state of emergency that had been put in place a week before we were set to leave but you wouldn’t even know that there was anything going on . We felt very safe and had no worries at all ! With some of the bad reviews I was questioning our choice but it turns out those people just like to complain about everything!!! We had an amazing time great people, everyone was so friendly and always asking if we needed anything. The food was great ,the buffet always had something for me to eat and I’m a little picky.breakfast is amazing , the omelettes are soooo good . We had 3 a la carts don poblo was very good , the garden grill was also good , I forgot my sunglasses there and went back and our waiter had put them aside he even remembered me . Now for the Italian restaurant it was NOT good at all ! My husband and I both had the lasagna and it was extremely salty I could barely eat it maybe the other food on the menu is better. The only the thing that I would say is a negative is the people trying to scam you into join there so called privileged club timeshare thing !!! When we were talking to the lady she told us is was just to see if we would want to upgrade to there luxury side DO NOT DO IT !! IT IS NOT WORTH THE FREE GIFT !! Really pissed us off but besides all that we had a great time . Make sure you tip your mini bar guy , we forgot the one day and he didn’t give u# any water or coffee . Oh and if you want a coconut to drink find one of the groundskeepers they will get one right off the tree ,it was very good and a great hangover cure 👍oh and the bartenders are very heavy handed when pouring drinks so watch out if you are not a big drinker. All in all it was great first vacation and we will return!
