I read a ton of reviews leading up to our trip and while some comments were accurate, others were way off. We arrived and were immediately served at the front desk by a friendly receptionist. I made sure to express our interest in an ocean view in a quiet location, and slid some cash her way. The butler lead is to our room, which was near the noisy road. I let the butler know that I was hoping for a quieter room, to which he replied "please contact the office and they will put you on a list. But regardless, any room changes cannot happen for 24 hours." I didn't agree but smiled and thanked him. I immediately called the front desk and spoke to the woman who checked us in and again, made it very clear (while turning up the charm, of course) that this is not the room we had hoped for. We immediately got moved to a better room overlooking the main pool, which is where we stayed for the remainder of our trip (#24207). The front desk worker called moments later and made sure we were comfortable. Very considerate! The trip only got better from there. Food was great, despite what some other reviewers advised. Most of the staff were jovial and happy to engage in conversation. The beach is small, but there are so many options if you're not happy. We went to the beach near the wedding gazebo everyday and loved it! The beach chairs begin getting filled quickly around 9am, again, despite what others mentioned. The cats are present but not at all overwhelming. We saw them and they mostly hung out in the bushes. The one critique I have is that the layout is a bit strange. It's almost as if the Luxury section was an afterthought. The Grand side has more action, the lobby feels more grand, and the grounds feel more tropical. Final thoughts: happy we chose this resort but will likely not be back only because we want to keep exploring. Don't think twice...try to let the little things go and enjoy your vacation!

All-inclusive, all covered!

We stayed 3 nights at the Luxury Bahia, during a 10night holiday in Jamaica. It was a great choice for us to save some money for a few nights and not think about anything! The adults side of the hotel is still pretty massive, and our room was a reflection of that. Very clean, all amenities etc - the only problem is trying to find it again after a few drinks in the bar! Food and drink was to be expected of an all-inclusive hotel of this size, however I would avoid the restaurants - really not worth the bother, and the service and food is not great in comparison to the buffet restaurant. The lunch served at the pool restaurant is a highlight, with fresh jerk chicken and pork on the menu every day! Entertainment was alright, again - no surprises, it was a shame the lobby bar closed at 11pm and the only other place to go was across the other side of the resort (with the nightclub having a strong smell of vomit!). Overall, an easy place to stay - lots of space, clean and well staffed.

Over all a nice resort

Traveled April 16th to 23rd, 2017. A good hour plus drive from the airport, A good chance to see the Jamaica countryside. Check in was fine. our room 26715 has a super view of both the ocean and the pool section, could not ask for better. The room for the whole week was on the warm if not hot side, poor A/C, complained twice but nothing was done, My son staying 5 doors down had the same problem, so it's a building (26) problem not a room problem. Very clean and up to date, great bathroom and again a very nice view from the 7th floor, 4.5 stars. The pool was very good, no complains, good bar service, a 4.5 star. The beach/ocean this is the problem, there is no beach, it's man made and very very sad. goes out maybe 40 feet and is never deeper than 2-1/2 feet and very rocky, you can find a nicer beach a 10 minute walk away at the other hotel but again rocky.The beach 1 star. The food was o.k nothing over the top, Both buffet and restaurants are pretty good, but nothing to write home about, You will not go hungry, Room service is not very good, cold food both times. The food and drinks a 4 star. The service, well this is Jamaica, 5 star all the way. So bottom line would I go back?, No, the beach is the killer for me and my wife. We go to Jamaica for the ocean and beach and this resort has one of the worst I've seen in a long time.

Beautiful vacation

I loved every moment of my stay. With 7 restaurants, buffet and bars everywhere, Bahia Principe was the perfect hotel to stay at. The pools, entertainment and friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing. Our gorgeous and spacious room was always clean and our butler was on top of everything. I just got back to Toronto and I cannot wait to go back. I hope everyone tipped the hard working and friendly staff. Thank you for the fun, food, drinks and more!

Beautiful resort but very large. First resort we've ever been to that the rooms and grounds looked exactly as their advertising pictures and were just as clean as it would be new. Had great food and all staff were very friendly and helpful. The only real downfall of this resort was it's beach. It was very small and you were unable to swim as the water wasn't deep enough. They have a rock wall to stop breakwater which made it very shallow. I'm not very tall and the water was only up to the top of my hips. You had an option to go over to the Grand side of the resort (this is the family side) to use their beach but it required a golf cart ride to take you there or walk 10-15 minutes and it wasn't much deeper than the other but beach area was a little larger.
