This supersized beachside hotel has a trio of huge pools and dining choices ranging from Japanese to gourmet.
This hotel is on a private 800-metre beach, where you can sometimes spot nesting turtles on the sand. Inside, all rooms are junior suites with hydro massage tubs, and nearly all have sea views.
The pool scene is made up of 3 joined-up lake-style pools. And for dinner, the Tex-Mex à la carte stands out. The hotel even has its own shopping and leisure centre, with boutiques, bars and a disco.

Resort has Maintenance Issues and needs updating
The service of the restaurant and cleaning staff is amazing. Unfortunately we had issues with water leaking in our shower and the main bathroom around the ceiling lights. Very concerning and unfortunately the hotel management did not take this seriously and said that it was a air conditioning issues in the ceiling.More

Not a 5 star 3 at best
The management staff could not give a dam about there guest . The food is mostly the same thing boiled and taste less. They dont have much for cocktails unless you want beer or wine or something out of a machine, not 5 star more like 3 at best . The disconect between managemant and the rest of staff shows and they dont treat there service staff well at all . This is sad to see as I have stayed at Bahia's 21 times and this was the worst I have seen . I under stand that they are trying to make changes and would not return until some customer service skills are shown to the management . The hotel its self could be a 5 star but not the way its run now . They don't do one thing they say they are going to do and go out of there way to treat you like sheep. They also don't look out for the safety of there quest after 5 complaints that we had a problem in are bathroom the desk manager said she had come to are room personal to make sure the problems were fixed .Within 30 minutes of her saying that I went back to the room trusting what she said and fell on the floor and damaged my hip because the repair was not done . This is just one of many problems we had that we were told were fix but nothing happened . They will push you off on several different people with no one fixing issues they act like you are disturbing the day when you need something done . Even after a phone call from the sub director of the hotel saying they were going to make it right and get back to us we have herd nothing . As I said at the start of this we have stayed at Bahia Principe 21 times .1st time here and last time under present management The location is great and the Hotel its self is very nice. The beach is great.More

Just come back from the most amazing holiday at the Grand Bahia Principe, Runaway Bay, Jamaica. This was the best holiday I have had so far. The hotel was fabulous, the staff were amazing and attentive without being intrusive. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone of the hotel team. The food was excellent and we also had a fabulous dining experience in the Don Pablo restaurant where the food and service were exceptional. We also took advantage of the Spa which was phenomenal, we enjoyed it so much we went back for more. Would definitely recommend this hotel and I would love to return.More
Went for a wedding
This hotel is quite nice and spacious but there were a lot of weird limitations put on guests. It was excruciatingly hard trying to get reservations to the a la cartes. The only included hard alcohol was gross off brand labels. On the night of the wedding it was like pulling teeth to switch out a bottle of apricot liqueur for a bottle of peach liqueur that the bride preferred. The food overall was very disappointing and the rooms were average. I would not return to this hotel. More
