- All Inclusive Features
We had an amazing time at the Grand Bahia after reading some of the reviews I was really nervous about the visit but I needn't of been, we are a family of 4 the moment we arrived we were offered refreshments given our key card and was shown our room, so while we were there we had our room cleaned daily, our fridge restocked everyday too the food can be a bit repetitive but I find that in most AI hotels but there will be something to eat for even the most fussy eaters! The pool is lovely you can either stay up the busy end where the entertainment is or you can walk up a bit and sit or swim in the quieter part 2 pool bars, the staff are lovely and I must tell you that there is a beach snack bar that has fantastic jerk chicken of a lunch time and the very pretty beach, the grounds are kept immaculate the gardeners work so hard, on the whole we had a fab time met lovely people and we done some excursions too like the 9mile bob Marley tour that was really good, Dunn river falls that was amazing, and my favourite was dolphin cove where we swim with dolphins that was absolutely amazing! some of the nightly entertainment was fantastic too, would I ever go back to Bahia? Yes I most definitely will someday!
We didn't know what to expect having read so many mixed reviews. The only negative is the beach. Water is crystal clear but very shallow and rocky. Staff was super friendly. Even the gardners said good morning to us and wished us a good day. Bartenders and servers were all exceptional. Food was very good. There was lots of variety and food was always hot. Would return in a heartbeat.
I have travelled world wide with my wife in our opinion this is by far the worst hotel we have stayed in , the reasons 50% of the staff are the most miserable in the world , walking to breakfirst they dont even pick there heads up to say morning ( manners cost nothing) the breakfirst eating place service is nearly none exsisent if your not there by 9 the food has nearly gone and you have a long wait for anything we asked 5 times 1 morning for coffee and tea nearly 1hr before we got them also the beach eating place on a dinner time staff yet again not good enough in there for an hour no one came near the corner section of the room we were sat in at all we had to source water plus drinks very very poor , service really lets this place down have asked to speak to manager many times but nothing but a message to the manager im here until the 22nd room 17415 feel free to chat to me whilst im here
Originally I was to stay In Ocho Rios but plans had change and i came to this resort on a deal with my family . I have not visited Jamaica in 25 Years and allot has changed things have gotten modern I am not sure if thats a good or a bad thing. I love the atmosphere at Grand Bahia we spoke with the security who was pleasant and the Jamaican vibes with everyone saying no problem is an understatement. I never saw cockroaches or similar insects . We did not get any unfair treatment nor rude behavior from the staff . Everyone was pleasant and we also tipped those who provdied excellent service . . We used a travel shuttle team who we loved Cliffton made my son smile he doesnt like smiling with strangers they price was good and we did roundtrip and tours with TCJ Tours. The whole trip was great Jamaica has great people its not a 5 star hotel but not sure how people rate the hotel at a 1.
Our overall experience here as a family was ok.. not the best or the worst.. and here's why: We've heard the food is a lot better in Jamaica in comparison to Dominican Republic or Cuba from so many people but we were definitely disappointed!!! There were always the same food regardless of type of menu for example it'll say Mexican one day and Canadian another day but it was always the same food. SAW SOOO MANY COCKROACHES IN THE BUFFETS THAT MADE US LOSE OUR APPETITES ESPECIALLY AROUND THE GRILLS (omelette and pasta stations), AROUND THE TABLES NEAR THE WALLS and ALL AROUND THE AREA WHERE MORE CUTLERIES ARE STORED( we noticed them while sitting beside it)!! It's definitely time for a pest control call. Even for all the mosquitos all around the elevators and inside of them that linger in the room when staff leave doors open to clean!!! It made me a worrisome parent throughout our stay. Another biggie was having to carry our strollers up or down the stairs to avoid a long walk to get to a ramp just to get to the buffets!! These are the main issues but there were many more that were adjustable. Also would love to give a shout out to Cassandra who cleaned our room during most of our stay who did an exceptional job and made us feel as if she did it all wholeheartedly.. so thank you and to those who made us feel welcome and comfortable with a baby who had his moments here and there.
