The trip was supposed to begin with me enjoying my birthday, but immediately after checking in I walked into my room and slipped and fell, hurting my elbow and ended up with a hurt back and neck the next morning. I contacted the front desk, and security took photos but no one did anything but offer me some ice, or a drink (which was included in the stay), and room service which wasn’t even a service at all. I tried to speak to a manager and was told I would be contacted. I never heard from anyone. Honestly Bahia Principe Grande is a health hazard. Why was there leaking water from the roof? Let alone it was by the front door. They don’t care! Save your money. Spend less and stay somewhere else or spend more and stay somewhere else but don’t stay there. I’m still waiting to hear back from the hotel In regards to my email I sent while staying there.

Horrible resort. Where should I start. There was water dripping from the roof of our room from day one. They couldn’t fix it right after trying multiple times. Room stink of paint frost day; guess we were not the only ones that had that problem. There were cockroaches everywhere. They mess up our restaurant reservations pretty much ever single day. Customer service was super rude, food wasn’t that great either. Worst vacation ever .

The overall resort, pools, beaches, restaurants, bars, activities, and excursions we excellent and the staff that supported these areas were amazing. We did experience issues with registration, incorrect bookings between Expedia and the resort, no AC in the room, a faulty light switch, broken safe box, and rude service at the front desk when trying to resolve issues. WiFi was spotty at times and gets cut off the morning of checkout. The resort considers children over 12 as an adult but they may not get an adult wrist band. So if you are booking a room with children, make sure you are aware. We had to pay extra for the 17 year old who is considered a minor in the US but an adult at the resort. Lastly, if you request for service, it may take longer than expected

What an awesome weekend it was...it was my second time staying at Bahia but this time was better than before. I especially enjoyed the entertainment on the beach after dinner. The fire show was spectacular. Staff we so courteous and caring. I would return to that hotel and recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy a getaway spot between Ocho Rios and Montego Bay.

We stayed for three nights and had problems when we got our rooms with only one bed inside instead of two double beds bt Jermaine at the front desk helped us out also Michael from front desk was great. The food was always cold on the buffet it was only hot when we did made to order food and drinks were not all tht good , it took awhile to get water on our table and there wasn’t a lot of juice options the service was not all good either at times we had to look around to find our waiter, but there was some amazing staff who deserve a great big up like Michael from the jasmine restaurant was great. Tyrell from the night grill, syemore and chief lemor from the hibachi restaurant were amazing bartender timmoy at the disco was great he made sure we enjoyed ourselves there. The chief at night grill was great too bt we didn’t get her name.
