    Horrible girl's trip

    The room is so outdated it's ridiculous and it was not clean. We had roaches in the room and we saw roaches around the food. Also, the last 2 nights we did not have air conditioning. We called the front desk at 3pm and told them our room was hot. We were told someone will come to the room but they never did. We called again when we returned from dinner, we was told again someone would come. We were eventually told the air was out on our side of the resort. The next day after we went to the desk the person gave us a $75 voucher to spend at the gift shop. The hallways in our building had carpet which should be changed out because it's outdated and smells. The staff lies a lot about things.Never want to see that place again

    Luxury? I’m Not So Sure

    This place is beautiful and well maintained and very clean, but 1 hour 20 minutes from the airport. The primary things that make “luxury” questionable are the check in that takes to long. Why check in online if you still need to stand on line; the bar drinks and the rocky beach on the luxury side. We should not have to go to the Grand side to enjoy the beach. The rooms are large and spacious. The terrace/balcony is huge and the view in the ocean view room was excellent. Clear view of the beach as well as the beautiful pools. The drinks need to have some top shelf liquor in order to be luxury. Entertainment was very good. The JERK CHICKEN IS EVERYTHING!!! All of the food was good. If the beach is not important to you, it is a beautiful and clean resort, then DO NOT PASS, GO!

    Très belle expérience. Ne pas écouter que le négatif!

    My friend and I just got back yesterday from our week at the resort. Second time for us there. Always on the luxury side. We had (almost) perfect vacation both time and Monday morning, we are calling our travel agent to book for next summer again. The room was perfectly cleaned every day and sometimes twice a day! NEVER saw a cockroach or anything like that in our room. (25217) The food at the Jazmin buffet is good, a lot of choices. Different theme every night. We also ate all our lunches at the Las Olas. Smaller buffet, but still very good! And the view…! At the à la carte, the first trip 2 years ago, we only got to try the Picasso (we were deceived) and the Knife (we loved). So this time, we downloaded the application, and 5 days before arrival, we were able to book all our 7 à la carte that we were aloud. Overall, for us, The Knife is still the best one, with Don Pablo and the Japanese. When we’ll go back, we will only have those 3…maybe twice a couple of them….we’ll see 😉 The coffee at the lobby (luxury side) opens at 7:00 and they do the best coffees! At the pools, always plenty of chairs. No problem with that. The only morning we got to the pool and there was like 12 chairs blocked by one sandal here, one t-shirt there, a bag here and a book there, it was ALL by people from the Grand side and they were asked to leave by the lifeguard. This is one thing that we did appreciate: we pay MORE to be on the Luxury side, and staff make sure it is respected. They explain very politely to the adults and parents why they are not aloud on the Luxury side and ask them to leave. ALL of the people that I saw were very nice about that and left….except one man that was very rude to the lifeguard and wanted to argue. The barman Marcell at the pool bar near the luxury side was a gentleman with us. We had a lot of fun with him! At the lobby bar, by night, we appreciated the calm and friendly atmosphere. Outon (not sure of the spelling) was very nice with us! Very polite! Hope to see him next year. So, this is it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, if I can, I will answer you! ✌🏼🇯🇲🌴🇨🇦

    Staff Made a Difference

    If life is a collection of memorable moments, I have an abundance of lasting memories from my stay in Jamaica at the Luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay. The resort was immaculate, and the friendly staff takes pride in the care and upkeep while anticipating your vacation needs. Every time a staff person was encountered, even in passing, they greeted guests with a smile and salutation. I would like to personally thank Nigel (cart driver), Tivaughn (cart driver), waitress extraordinaire Keslene Allen (who remembered my strawberry lemonade), and a special thank you to (the real) Tyrese Williams who seemed to be the ambassador of Luxury Bahia Principe.
