Got better service in 2 star hotels

Thought this was paradise but the service just kills the experience. The fromt desk moves really slow. I had to follow up with them 5 times and issues wasnt fixed till the last day i was there. They kept making promises and never kept them. Everyday i went to the pool, early, mid or late, they never had towels. Thats insane. Never experienced that all my life taking vacations. My room was flooded and there's was no urgency to give me another room or fix the problem. The assiocates saw the issue and didnt attempt to resolve it. I couldnt wait for my vacation to be over. Never again will i use this hotel.

Plenty to be disappointed about

Let me start with the good. Pools, Water Park and Beaches are well maintained and the variety made it so you never got bored with one water area. The food in the buffets was good. Enough variety to suit even the pickiest eater. Now the bad... The A/C in our room never functioned as well as we would have liked it to. Maintenance tinkered with it each of the first three days and got it to the point that it was just tolerable. Later in the week we'd get a call from the front desk checking on it and I'd always tell them it's just barley tolerable, which I guess to them meant it was alright because they never tried to improve the conditions for us. If you read the web site where they talk about all the great A la Cart restaurants on the property you can pretty much forget them. Especially if you have children with you and want to eat before they fall asleep in the evening. We couldn't get any of the reservations we wanted and we started working on them a week prior to arrival via email. This despite the restaurants being pretty much empty any time you passed by them. The buffet service was really hit and miss. Some days you had servers who where quick and attentive and other days you were almost done eating before you got a glass of water. One meal we went through the entire meal with only one napkin for the six of us. Personally I like to think I roll with the punches, but there were enough hiccups and frustrating disappointments to disrupt what should have been a carefree relaxing week. We were kind of miffed that there wasn't more activities or more communication and readily available information on what they did have scheduled. This was our first experience with an all inclusive resort... we've been doing 7 day cruises for the past 15 years and decided to try something different. Did our week at the Grand Bahia sour our taste for all inclusive resorts? I want to say no, however we definitely won't ever go back to this particular resort. Should have trusted the other reviews and booked elsewhere.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive beach bonanza for every member of your fam-bam.

The white, cabana-ish tents that hug the pool and provide shade while you chillax.

Being greeted by colorful, fresh bougainvillea on your massage table in the spa.

The two coolio, curvy pools that are a coconut's throw from the beach.

 

What We'd Change

The beach is a little pebbly, so make sure you bring your water shoes. The upside is that it makes for truly excellent snorkeling right off shore.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 75 minutes from Mobay airport. Don't fret. You'll be greeted with a welcome cocktail soon.

The beach is a bit pebbly, so bring your water shoes.

Before your flight home, hit Club Mobay at the airport for A/C, drinks and lots of spoiling.

Book your airport transfers with us before you arrive. You'll avoid a lot of headaches.

Hotel Description

Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica: All-Inclusive & All-Fam-tastic

When you enter the open-air lobby of this Victorian-style resort, you'll immediately feel the Jamaican breezes wash over you. Next, you'll encounter a sea of white, wicker chairs on the expansive porch (they're oh-so British), where you can sip a cocktail and soak in all the awesome of the lush grounds. Wander through the complex and you'll be wowed by the glistening pools and the cerulean waves of Runaway Bay. Grab a Red Stripe from the swim-up bar while your kids can descend into a splash frenzy at their own pool. Then you can all gather for some Jerk Chicken at the snack bar, where you can plot your next adventures: water sports, nightly shows, and more. When might we expect you?
