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.

Maintenance required.

This is a very large hotel so very crowded and loud so don't expect to find a quiet spot to listen to the waves. WiFi is only free in the lobby,, an extra fee was required for resort wide. Also an extra fee for the safe. Staff are friendly as always in Jamaica but some kept asking how do you like my service, might as well just ask me for a tip, and some tried to sell things. Take lots of bug spray and expect to spend plenty of time killing things in your room if on a lower floor. Several of our group requested room changes to upper floors as their children were covered in bites. Our room walls had lots of squashed mosquitoes on them by the weeks end. The Hotel is fully booked so room changes are a wait list and maintenance problems are not dealt with. My husband fixed our toilet. Much of the grout missing from between the tiles. We didn't get any towels for the last day in our room. Good idea to bring one from home as also the pool towels ran out frequently. The exhaust fan didn't work in the Japanese restaurant and so it was filled with cooking smoke and was so hot we had to leave before the meal was over. Elevators were a long wait, and then sometimes the door wouldn't open to let you out. Absolutely stunning exterior, pool, gardens and beach. Too bad about the management on the inside.

Worst resort ever

Room smells like a public restroom,Shower covered with mold!Elevator has no even fan I’m not talking about AC, it’s smelly and always 100F inside.Personal is 50/50 some workers are very nice people some of them very rude.Food is same all week long but the food it’s not a problem, very disappoint is plastic cups and overused plates what they use to serve.Overall not friendly and not healthy place to stay. I don’t know who gives 5 starts to that place? It’s 2 star place maximum!IF YOU WANT GOOD VACATION STAY AWAY FROM THAT JUNCK YARD!!!

Not impressed at all

Hallways rug had a smell and had stains charging for using he safe was a little to much for me I normally bring a good amount of cash I prefer to pay with so I had to use the safe also free wifi is only in the lobby where everyone is at should be free at all locations of the resort my refrigerator in my room never was cold enough to have my drink speaking of drinks was awful so if you wanted premium drinks that extra charge made no sense first all inclusive I've seen that very disappointed. I needed extra towels in my room they never came thru also I travel twice a year by far worst all inclusive I've been.

Poor service

This was the worst service we have ever received at a resort. The drinks were served in 6 oz plastic cups. Restaurants were hard to reserve. Poor management. Will stick to Dreams resorts from now on. We witnessed other visitors having trouble getting reservations as well. Some staff were friendly. Others not very helpful.

Darn weather.

I'm late in writing this again. We had a nice time at this resort. Not as big as others here led me to believe. Not as big as Bahia in Punta cana. Very similar to it though. Food was good. Service was good. Beach is huge. No problems getting a deck chair at either beach or pool. There is quieter sections around the pool which is nice. Rooms are large bed was comfortable a/c was adequate. Got a little poopy one day, I wasn't sick exactly, just needed to be near the toilet. Once I stop drinking through the straws the bartenders put in my drinks I had no issues. Their hands are touching so many things and then they grab a straw for your drink. Other resorts will use small tongs to place it in your drink. That would be my only complaint. Oh wait. more; they charge extra to use the room safe. I don't mind having to pay for wifi (which I didn't) the free use in the lobby was all I needed but a safe is a must have. Resorts should also look at getting bigger safes in the future, what with all the devices people bring on vacation these days.
