Great vacation resort

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bahia Principe Luxury. The entire propery was very clean and well cared for. The buffets offered a variety of foods and included some special evenings (like Italian night, Mexican night, etc.). There was also evening entertainment provided. All of the employees were very helpful and personable. We made a reservation for the romantic, beach dinner and absolutely loved it. The service, the location, and the food was great. We would have liked to have had a nightclub for dancing on the luxury side. There was a disco at the Grand sister resort, but it was a long way from where we stayed. Would have been nice to have something going on at the Luxury resort after 11pm. Only negative for us was that we were unable to get reservations at the specialty restaurants, We tried to book reservations the day we arrived but were told there were no tables available at all. Given that you can't book ahead of your trip, the resort really needs to find a way for guests to be able to enjoy those specialty restaurants.

Noisy but excellent staff and service

I went here with my partner. It was my second time coming to Jamaica and his first. We enjoyed the balcony, jacuzzi tub, size and amenities of the rooms, but found quickly that it was quite noisy at night. From the people walking through the common area outside by the pools, to the sounds of everything like voices, footsteps and carts lechoing through the hallways. We asked for a room change and were given a room on the side of the garden and were pleasantly delighted. Building 26 was awesome! Being vegan I found it very challenging to find dishes that were satisfying. I really wanted Jamaican food and ital food to be specific. I figured out early on that in order to get a special we need meal I had to get up early and ask for the Chef, I was able to get it without selfish a few times amazing! Everyone was beyond helpful, kind and accommodating I only wouldn’t recommend it because this property is too large for my taste. My partner kept saying it was almost like a small city which I must say I agree. The rooms are very clean and the entertainment was awesome, and there were several activities throughout the day that were awesome. I wouldn’t go to this property again because of its size, I would recommend for someone who wanted to be around a lot of other people

Exceeded Expectations

I did my research for this trip, my second with CheapCaribbean.com. The details and reviews on the website for "Bahia Lux" as many of the locals called it were very helpful for making my choice. And the choice was a good one. The weather was perfect and the facility was superb. Ignore the reviews about slippery floors and loose tiles in the pools and focus on the bigger stuff (and, yes, they now provide washcloths!). The staff were very helpful and a lot of fun. Service was very good. It was easy to tip a buck for a drink and leave a decent tip after dinner, even though neither was obligatory. They were appreciated and it definitely leads to happy employees and good service. We did not have one single issue of an employee with a poor customer service mentality. Everyone was excellent. The food in the Jasmine Buffet was awfully good with great diversity. The food in the restaurants was fine but by no means to die for. I think the resort can improve in this area. The pools were clean and well equipped with towels and lounge chairs and staff prepared to serve drinks. Our suite was large and airy with a huge bathroom/shower. Yes, there were mosquitos but there were scented candles to hold them at bay. It's a good idea to bring some sort of mosquito spray but, honestly, once the candle was lit we slept well and didn't have any issue with the critters. The men and women who staff the bar work hard and are a lot of fun and do their best to keep everyone with their drink of choice in hand. We hired a taxi one day for a day trip to Ocho Rios where we shopped on our time and ate at a really fun local seafood place on the bay with great views of the area. The value of our 5 day stay was really, really good. The airfare connection from Ft. Lauderdale through Spirit was perfect. The reviews I read on Spirit were not very good, however, we flew roundtrip on a brand new airbus and both ends of the trip were flawless and on time. Perfect on that count. I recommend this resort and the Bahia Lux package without reservation. Thanks to the resort, its great management and staff, and to CheapCaribbean.com!

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, all-fabulous Beach Bliss Fest.

The evening turn down service, bathrobe and slippers in the room & butler service.

Sipping cocktails, living large, on the private beach.

Getting one free hour of kayaking, paddle surfing, snorkeling & catamaraning.

 

What We'd Change

Parts of the beach are rocky, but if you bring some water shoes, you'll get to walk around and enjoy those parts of the beach, too.
 

Why You Should Go

It's 75 minutes from Mobay airport. Patience, young jellyfish. You'll be beaching soon.

Bring your water shoes - parts of the beach are a bit pebble-y.

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

Bob Marley's home and the famous Dunn's River Falls are nearby and well worth a visit.
