- All Inclusive Features
Absolutely enjoyed our stay. We stayed on the luxury side which was peaceful and so beautiful. We were greeted with enthusiasm by our floor butler Holly who was absolutely amazing. We were offered welcome drinks and they showed us to the lunch buffet while our rooms were being prepared. We had a room mix up and got a room with 2 queen beds instead of with 1 king, but they were able to resolve it the next day so that wasn't a problem. The food was excellent, we ate at Jazmin ( our favourite) las olas, and did the a la carte with Brazilian and Japanese 2 other nights which was also very good. Good service and the staff were very attentive which was nice. Absolutely gorgeous grounds and landscape, and the pool was a lot of fun too. The shows at night were a lot of fun especially the steel pan band "pozitive vibrationz ". It was close to dolphin cove and Dunn's river which was excellent attractions and I celebrated my 30th birthday there which was fantastic. That night the staff at Takara had a cake that my family arranged with our butler, and while we were at dinner our butler Holly prepared my room with balloons, ribbon, flower petals and champagne.. it was such a beautiful surprise! One of the best experiences I've ever had and I would do it again. I recommend staying in the luxury side on block 24 with Holly as your floor butler.. she made the stay that much more enjoyable :) Thank you Luxury Grand Bahia Principe Resort!
Grand Bahia Runaway Bay, Jamaica is a fabulous resort. It's a great place to stay. Property as advertised. Rooms nice. Dinners at fine dining restaurants is fabulous. The buffets need little help. Food wasnt always hot nor what I'm used to with Bahia. I stayed at Bahia Tulum 2 years ago and buffets were phenomenal. Overall though. Fabulous. Great bang for your buck. PLEASE TIP GENEROUSLY. Just because it's all inclusive doesn't mean one shouldn't tip. Be generous as the Jamaicians are. And don't forget to visit Damien at Moon Rock at Bahia beach! Has the best shells/keepsakes etc!YA MAN
I typically don't write reviews about places to go or not to go. But seeing as I based my decision on online reviews, it's only fitting that I give the truth back to the community. I read so many wonderful reviews about the resort and read that it was 4.5/5 and had all this great fun and food. So naturally, when picking a resort, I went with the reviews. I'm a patient man and pretty much can say I'm rather easy going for the most part. The service at this resort pushed my patience and tested my calmness. I went in a group of 10 and we thought we would all have the time of our lives. From the moment we arrived...problems. The resort took (3)three hours to get our rooms ready. We booked as a group, but the hotel had our rooms in opposite ends of the hotel. The servers treated us like we should be serving them. We met other families and people just there for a good time who also complained about the poor service and it became obvious that the pictures of the resort and the great reviews didn't mesh with the truth. The truth is, Grand Bahia Principe is a nightmare of a resort. Sure it looks BiG and spacious, but it's dark and hateful. There's no happiness to the place. 1 out of 5 servers were polite. You'd think you were in prison, not a resort, the way we have to beg for fair treatment and good service. I was personally uncomfortable with a server who stopped working to sit and drink with me and when I got up to go to the bar, he told me to get him a drink too. A staff member telling a guest to get them a drink? What kind of resort is this? I thought to myself. The beach front is rocky and full of weeds. It's not a nice resort for beachfront. Overall, the food was just okay. This resort is about a 2 out of 5 overall. Mediocre at best. I highly recommend that you avoid this resort. Jamaica itself is lovely, but the GBP is horrible.
The employees were very friendlyThe food was great; especially at the French restaurantThe beach restaurant serves the best Jerk Chicken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And Max, the executive chef went out of his way to make sure we were happy I would definitely recommend this resort
Overall decent experience. Food is buffet style at the main restaurant. Food was pretty blah and tasteless. We did not go there to eat so we just accepted it and moved on.It was rainy and the roof in our room was leaking. Plaster was falling everywhere. Told the maid. She said that they need to maintain it better.Asked for wash cloths everyday we were there. I was told that they could not find any. Finally the maid brought 1 to our room. Very dissatisfied. The second day of our stay there was no cold water. Just got. Tried to shower. It was like getting boiled alive. Called the desk again they said they would check it out and they had several calls about the same issueThe upkeep in the hotel is terrible as far as the rooms. They really need to step it up. Love Jamaica but will not choose this resort again
