Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
I have been to Jamaica many times and I wanted my family to enjoy. After traveling for over 5 hours, we get to the hotel and our rooms are not ready. We had to sit through and orientation but it was never mentioned to enjoy the speciality restaurants you had to make reservation. I made reservation after being turned down several times. We could not get a reservation until after 9:00pm because they were so called booked. But when you walk pass the resturant it was only about 5 - 7 people. The staff was very rude, unprofessional and prejudice. It took the staff 4 days to fix our phone and tv because they were not working upon our arrival. The pool shut down at 6:00pm every night and the pool bar shut down at 5:30pm. The rooms are dated, we had to ask for towels and wash cloths every single day. Not much of a night life after 9:00pm and it is a lot of walking in the resort and the shuttles are never working. Don't spend your money this place is awful!!!
Huge hotel, not a lot of parking. Stayed on the adult only side with access to the entire property. Makes no sense that at the bars on the grand side you are not allowed to have premium drinks, only on the luxury side !!! Parking was a nightmare, staff should not be allowed to park on property when guests have no where to park !!! Food pretty decent. Housekeeping could use some training.
My friends and I stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica for 5 days in October. I'd say it's a 4 star hotel at best. The resort itself is beautiful, but huge - clean for the most part, rooms and bathrooms are spacious, nice beach areas. When we arrived, we had to check in through a messy system. Everyone from our bus was herded into a room like sheep, where we had to listen to a speech from hotel staff, fill out forms, and wait in a barely existent line to get our room keys. We were thankful they at least provided alcohol for this! The food was mediocre at best. We ate at the buffet, the beach bar, Garden Grill, Mikado, and Don Pablo. The buffet food wasn't fresh - a lot of the food seemed old. The beach bar buffet was the same. Garden Grill and Mikado were pretty good; we had great experiences at both. Don Pablo was a disaster. We wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food was extremely disgusting. My friends and I all tried our best to eat the food without complaint, simply because the waiters were so kind and were making such an effort. Two of my friends actually went to the washroom to throw up during the meal. The alcohol, unless you purchase a premium package, was gross. All mixed drinks were syrupy (we were unable to stomach them after the first day), and they only offered one type of beer and one of each red and white wine. The staff in general were great. They were kind, courteous, and helpful. As we were three girls travelling, we weren't asked this of the staff, but we heard from male travellers that they couldn't go anywhere without being pressured to purchase marijuana or prostitutes. We did feel very safe, although as a female I probably wouldn't walk alone on the resort at night. All in all, I wouldn't go back to a Grand Bahia Principe hotel, however I would like to take the opportunity to thank the hardworking staff for doing their best to make our experience the best one possible.
First time in Jamaica and at grand bahia principe loved everything about it we were not in the luxury side, but might as well been the room was a junior suite and spotlessly clean on arrival to our room you could smell bleach and disinfectant, which to me is a good sign, choice of 4 al a cartes although disappointed at the Italian, but the rest what we tried were brilliant and really good choice,the main restaurant was really good food to with a great choice always something to eat even for a fussy eater, there are 2 parts to the beach 1 a quiet little cove,the pool was lovely and warm and kept clean but some people spoilt it by smoking in the pool and putting there cigs out on a little island in the middle, prices in the shops on the complex are very expensive, the only thing I didn't like was the shower while showering there was a horrible smell came up from the drain and the same thing at the pool bar made me feel sick....must be the drains.....lovely friendly staff and can't do enough for you I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for somewhere different to go..most relaxing holiday I've had .it cost $6 pd for the safe which I think is a bit of a rip off when your all inclusive
Had an amazing time here at the Grand Bahia! We arrived Oct 6 and departed Oct 11. During our stay there, the staff made us feel very welcome. The entertainment team was socializing with not only us, but everyone that we met there. It was a pleasure getting to know them as well. Averrona, Cyril, Cavell, Oshane, and Kevin were great at keeping the enthusiasm going with all of the guests on the resort at the time. They were all very professional and socialized with everyone. They made you feel included by letting you partake in activities such as water pong, aquafitness, and countless other activities. They are all very hard workers and try to put a smile on your face every day. Devon Wilson, at the food buffet, was also very accommodating to all of our requests that we had about the food. The service at Grand Bahia was exceptional and that was one of the highlights to our trip. Thank you to all that made our trip wonderful! We will definitely be coming back!
