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 steakhouse stands out. The hotel even has its own shopping and leisure centre, with boutiques, bars and a disco.

First time to Jamaica, second time at a Grand Bahia Principe
This was our first time to Jamaica and our second time to a Grand Bahia Principe. The resort in Jamaica was so much nicer than the one in San Juan in Dominican Republic. The people were nice at both but the food was better in Jamaica. The beach in Jamaica is not as big but the pool is hugh! The a la carte dinners weren't anything special but you won't go to bed hungry. There were a lot of people on the beach trying to sell you stuff but they were friendly and respectful if you didn't want to buy anything. Please know that Jamaica has a 30% unemployment rate and they are just trying to feed their families. Overall this was a fantastic vacation and we will becoming back!More
Had a Great Jamaican Vacation
We had a great vacation! The room was clean and very spacious. The staff were very friendly and happy and treated us very well. The food was wonderful and the beach was great. The pools were nice and clean and very well kept. The shows were top notch and the entertainment was over the top. We went on an excursion, the Catamaran, snorkeling on the coral reef, the Dunn's River Falls,A party on the catamaran, Lunch at Margarettaville and then back to our resort. We had a lot of fun in the sun. A great trip overall. Would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a great vacation!More
Rude staff, poor service
We arrived at grand Bahia 13/4/2016 from then on it was a down hill slope. After checking in and getting to room, on way to our room we was offered marijuana and cocaine by the bell boy, this progressed over the week to being offer marijuana and cocaine throughout the resort from room service waiters, pool attendants and every security guards on the site. The buffet had a selection of food which is the same most days, confusing mash potatoes and veg on offer for breakfast, we went too two of the a la carte restaurants the food was served Luke warm and the waiter service was terrible all over the complex with the staff being unhelpful and rude, the drink selection was poor as they kept running out of most spirits. .The beach bar was never open on one of the beaches all beachs needed a good clean with cigarette butts and drinking cup everywhere the main swimming pools need a good clean as they have scum marks all around the edge, we did complain to management twice but nothing changed, on the other hand the weather was good needless to say it wasn't a cheap holiday but We feel totally ripped offMore
We had visited the Grand Bahia Principe for a week and it was above and beyond anything we thought it would be. The staff was incredibly polite, helpful, and fun! Our room and the rest of the resort was very clean and well taken care of. The restaurants we chose to make reservations at were all delicious (however, we wish we could make more then 3, because that left us eating at the same buffet 4 nights) the food was awesome! The beaches were clean and rock free. The pools and swim up bar were always clean and fun with the staff running different kinds of games all with prizes at the end! The only minor issues we had were the ladies who worked for The Grand Bahia PrÃncipe Privilege Club were asking us over 50 times if we wanted a tour which got a bit on the annoying side, as well as the landscape workers bugging us about an extended amount of things if we were sitting down for a rest, the only way they would leave you alone is if you walked away or said no thanks 25 times. Overall, our vacation was absolutely amazing for our first trip as a couple! More
My husband myself and 2 other couples 1/with 2 children stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica from April 19-26 , 2016 .We booked this trip last minute with our friends after booking , I then went ahead and read all the reviews .. Needless to say I went expecting the worst! My experience was quite the opposite we Had an AMAZING TIME !!! The staff was wonderful !! EVERYONE was pleasant !! Very Friendly!!! Not at all what people have stated in past reviews I truly felt they aimed to please !!! TOWELS NEVER AN ISSUE ALWAYS FRESH !! BOTH BATH AND BEACH !! Hot Water NEVER an issue we showered everyday all different times ! Very clean Tidy !! Needed assistance with safe they took care of it ! Plenty of food !! buffet had a great selection ! My only complaint with food would to have some more basic selections (I eat lightly seasoned ) The Mikato was my favorite restaurant!! The rest were good ! All the staff was great about different drink selections !! All in all we thought the resort was beautiful!! The staff was wonderful !! I'm my opinion I think people by all inclusive and forget that the people who work there are human beings ! And are working for minimal amounts!! These people aren't part of the all inclusive tipping and appreciation goes along way ! If u can't afford to tip stay home !!More
