Do not choose this hotel!

From the time of arrival on the property there were class distinctions evident. The Amstar Travel representatives made the distinction at the first stop that it was the Luxury Bahia. So when we were deposited outside of the plain Grand Bahia Principe, we and everyone on the bus going to other hotels to begin their vacation knew that we were not luxury guests. When our luggage was unloaded at the foot of the hotel stairs, there were 4 bellman standing at the top of the stairs talking among themselves. However, no one made an effort to come down the stairs to grab our bags.There was no welcome drink provided until I made a loud statement about "where is the welcome drink upon arrival?" We were placed in a dark room, where I had to take the lap shades off to get more light. The beds were smaller than any other hotel I have ever stayed in over 30+ years of travel. The carpet in the hallways of the floors where guests were located were dank, dirty, worn with holes and patched. In the middle of the night, the toilet started to back up. We called the front desk 5 times only to be asked on each new call the same information. We were told that a Manager would come and a Manager never did. We started to notice flying bugs in the room, without our having opened the terrace door. So the bugs were entering from another location. After going to the lobby and asking to speak to a Manager. A lovely Guest Services Manager Ms. Jones offered to spray the room but I declined due to upper respiratory concerns of my spouse. I asked for a different room and was given a another room that was free of flying bugs and had better light. The service in several locations was inconsiderate and sullen. People were at the pool bar attempting to get drinks and everyone was told "bar closed!" No attempt to service or direct you to a open bar. The pool was closed for 5 hours, no explanation given just staff blowing whistles at people who attempted to enter the pool. The beach was littered with garbage and had rocks. The bellman who reported to transport us out of our bug infested room did not greet us upon arrival, even though I said hello... He stood at the entrance of our room door talking on his cellphone. After a heated verbal exchange about the bags that he expected us to lift onto the cart in the hallway, we sent him away. The food was redundant and the selection was sparse. The WiFi was poor in the lobby, my daughter could not check school e-mail. The bathtub was left with dirt rings once the room was supposedly cleaned. We were a party of 3 but only towels for 2 were provided daily. What a freekin DISASTER this vacation was. I can't imagine that this is acceptable to your brand. Please send staff to anonymously evaluate this hotel because it is really bad! Had a great experience last year with Cheap Caribbean in Cancun but this trip makes me reconsider Cheap Caribbean moving forward. This hotel should be removed from consideration for your travelers and AmStar should consider what they say on the bus describing hotels. Additionally, they should stop asking for tips for bus drivers. Lastly, they should stop packing the bus like sardines because it was an uncomfortable ride and a terrible way to begin a vacation. Should have taken pictures...

Mixed Bag

The Lobby, Sports Bar, outdoor bars and pool areas were lovely and spacious. The dining options, quality of food, and interior hallways in the resort rooms were not up to par. My room, however was spacious and well thought out with a big terrace and gorgeous biew if the resort and sea. The beach was disappointingly small on the Grand Bahia side. I had a lovely time and enjoyed myself but would try a smaller more upscale resort.

Great vacation

Please my people, just don’t read what some people say and be discouraged. Y’all already know you can’t please everyone no matter what you do; there’s always gonna be one with attitude..... Anyways, our vacation was just awesome! Starting from the airport, be prepared because some airport Employees are so rude!!!!!! I wish I could report them, but one lady at the custom counter was finally nice to us by welcoming us to Jamaica. But when it comes to the transportation we reserved, they got us really good except that it’s a little long route from the airport because of the multiple drop offs. Weird but the bus driver helper was selling a whole stack of weed as the bus was rolling lol. At the hotel, we were greeted with unlimited great cocktails. Everyone in the hotel were so nice and ready to help! Honestly, they’ll take good care of u. My fiancé is vegan but the chef is omg! He’s sooo great, he would do anything, making sure she had her food. But I tell y’all what.... please don’t let anything stop y’all, go and enjoy tour time. Plenty of food and drinks!!!!!! Bars in pools!!!! Live music, karaoke and more!!!!!!! I’ll come back with names so you’ll know who to look for.

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?
