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.

  • Katie B :
Fantastic hotel and holiday- highly recommend!

Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough- right from the moment we arrived we were treated excellently by all the staff. Our room was beautiful with a view over the sea (on the 3rd floor) the room had a Jacuzzi in the bathroom as well as a power shower and the room itself had a lovely comfortable big bed and a small dining/ seating area as well as chairs on the balcony. There was always space by the pool and by the beach, we have had problems on previous holidays with there being no space by the beach later in the day, and there were bars located in every area of the hotel so it was easy to get a quick drink!The staff working on the beach would come and ask us if we wanted drinks or snacks bringing to our sunbeds and the sea itself was beautiful, even when the weather had been a little storm the sea was calm. We were also extremely impressed with the food, both with the variety offered by the different restaurants and also the quality. People who complain about the food here are mad!!! I don't know what more people could want! There was a massive variety day to day with the evening meals, we didn't really have lunch as we had a big breakfast, and there is also the opportunity to go to the al a carte restaurants 3 times a week for evening meals. Every meal we had was delicious!We don't normally like to return to places as we like to experience different countries but the experience we has here was amazing and we will definitely be returning. Thank you for a truly lovely holiday.

Best Beach

This was the best beach I have ever seen! The chairs are very close to the water break. There is no server for drinks on the beach fyi. There are locals trying to sell stuff, so take cash with you. The service was excellent everywhere from everyone on the resort. The rooms were worn. I was disappointed with the a la carte food. You could only have a certain amount of meals depending on how many days you were there. So for every meal we had to eat the buffet. The buffets are large and a lot of local food. No room service. Awful house only liquor. But overall if you are looking to get away and relax, this is definitely the place to go with the best beach area and water!!

We went to the Grand Bahia Principe in Jamaica for March break. Perhaps it wasn't such a good idea after all. I have been to Jamaica a couple of other times before and to my disappointment Bahia Principe didn't measure up to the other places that I have been in Jamaica. First of all the beach for me is my priority number one. At the Bahia principe let's say that there is no beach. It is man made, small and not big enough for the resort. We had to walk a fair distance to get there and you need to be pretty early morning to get a chair but that was expected. The food by the beach wasn't that great either other then the Jerk Chicken which was the highlight of the day. The shows at night weren't really as good as I have experience before. The hotel in general was in good shape. There were some repairs being done and you could see that some efforts were being made to make it more comfortable. I wouldn't go back personally due to many of the factors mentioned above. Food, beach, and night entertainment.

Being a return guest at this resort I have seen tremendous improvements in terms of services by the staff in all departments, renovation inside and outside, d├ęcor. I would highly recommend this resort as it was our 4th stay here and we had a wonderful stay celebrating my daughter's birthday. The whole staff made special efforts by going beyond our expectations in celebrating her big day. We will always return here for our stay in Jamaica. They truly serve the best food with a wide variety of choice in the buffet.
