Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica

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.

Grand Bahia

This was our second time to this hotel. We had met 3 couples on our last trip here. We all went back. The entertainment staff was amazing. Kevin and Antonia were so good to us. They really know how to make people feel welcome. The food seem to have been upgraded since last Oct. We did not have a bad meal this time. The jerk chicken was amazing again this year. We had an amazing time!More

I stayed in this resort from august 29th to September the 6th. The only complaint I have about this place is: Not having a sitting area for smokers!!!! Since this resort is so big I am sure they could accommodate both customers smokers and no smokers after all they pay the same to enjoy the place. That issue apart... fantastic place, great service, amazing beach, very clean, good food and a Special Thanks to BEVERLEY the lady who clean our room always spotless and made sure our bed was turn down every night. This is a nice resort for no smokers!!!! Enjoy!!!More

Wonderful beach!

Loved the Grand Principe, room was clean and well outfitted. Bed and pillows comfortable. Staff other than front desk staff went above and beyond. Loved the beach!! The main buffet was good and the beach buffet had the BEST chicken ever. Service at bars was exceptional!! Thanks to Gerrick at the beach bar and Antonio at the lobby bar! Loved it. Would love to go back! Just beware of the lobby girls taking you to breakfast, a real time eater and they want you to sign up for a travel plan!!More

Nice Stay

We recently returned from this hotel in Runaway Bay Jamaica. Overall, it was a good quality hotel. The beach is beautiful and calm, one of the best beaches I have ever been to. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in the don Pablo section which is the adults only. I would give it a four star for the following reasons: 1, We were booked in a room with two double beds, which was disappointing, we should have called or emailed in advance to book a room with a queen or king, so we could have avoided this so I would recommend doing this before going. 2. the selection of fruit was very limited. they only had papaya, melons and pineapple. I don't like melons so this was a little disappointing. 3. most of the mixed drinks were the pre mixed slushy type i.e. pina colada, daiquiris which was disappointing. The food was quite good, the beef and the chicken were very good!! Overall a very nice hotel and the staff was very friendly. Good value for the money we paid for an October stay.More

Very nice hotel

My two adult son's and I stayed here Sept 19-22. We do a father-son weekend every January and September .It is an hour drive from the airport, but its a time to view some of the country.You can buy beers to take on the bus at the airport or the driver will stop for you.The Hotel lobby is large and welcoming and checkin was smooth.Our room was on the ground floor facing the pool.The room was clean and modern. One thing I should mention ,is that our TV didn't work later that night when we tried it.I called the front desk and some one was there in minutes to fix it.The fridge was stocked every day. We asked for more beers in the fridge and were obliged.The property is very large ,so be prepared to do some walking. Beach is nice. Pool is huge. Lots of chairs when we were there.All staff were friendly. Bartenders weren't shy as far as drink strength ! Food was good. They had a mimosa bar setup at breakfast.Entertainment was fun.I would definitely come back !More
