The Walmart of all inclusives....

Ellen M (Georgia) on Dec 06, 2022

Our experience was through the Privledge vacation club, so we had a better experience than most. (We transferred in from RCI vacation club.) We stayed on the Grand side, but we had access to the Luxury side (luxury is a big stretch, it is just the adults only side), and, of course to the Privlegde Club areas. The good: The vacation club staff in particular were super friendly, well trained, and provided us with wonderful service. The spa staff and front desk staff were also wonderful. They made the vacation. The massage therapists were fantastic! We got the Jamaican experience massage twice during our week long stay (because the hotel furniture is extrememly uncomfortable) and both times were outstanding. The resort itself, is overall a nice facility. Our room had no issues-everything worked and was clean. Our minibar was refreshed daily, no issues getting towels. You do have to ask for toiletries. The water and tropical breezes were fantastic. We enjoyed being on the beach. NOTE: You will need shoes to wear when walking on the beach. It is a bit rocky and uncomfortable on bare feet. It was fine once in the water. We didn't really spend any time at the pool, but the adults only side was nice and quiet. The bad: The entire hotel is an acoustical nightmare. It is very loud with lots of echoes bouncing everywhere: lobbies, restaurants, and hallways. The evening entertainment outside echoed loudly into our room, and we had to wear earplugs to sleep. The carpets in the hallways were absolutely filthy beyond being cleanable and desperately need to be replaced. The food is awful. We ate in all of the specialty restaurants. Then, we would just go to the buffet, which for the most part was not good either. Most of the food has no flavor, especially the deserts. It was odd like having lost a sense of taste from Covid. We would bite into certain things, and taste nothing. The Jamaican food section was the best (it had flavors!), and we ate it three meals a day. The worst restaurant was The Knife steak house. The ribye was 1/8th of an inch thick and tough as shoe leather. We were ill from the food there. We could not find a single comfortable chair or sofa in our room nor anywhere on the hotel property. Our bed was also very uncomfortable, and there are no blankets-just a sheet and the bedcover which is like a slightly thicker sheet. The beach chairs were, well, beach chairs. They sufficed. Get yours early because there are not nearly enough. Thank goodness we were in Priviledge Club so we could get premium spirits-they are NOT included for everyone else. Drink choices (variety) were just OK, but we were happy with what was being served. Don't expect a large variety. The pool has several sections. The section at the towel hut is the most loud, busy, and party vibe. The water was filthy in that section. We would not put a toe in it. Sadly, my favorite spot in the evening was near the adults only side by the pool or up on the veranda. It smelled of raw sewage. As much as I love to hear the frogs singing, I would not tolereate the stench. Conclusion: Even though the staff was wonderful and we had an overall restful time, we will not return because the food is terrible, the furniture uncomfortable, and it is filled with very loud echoes. They tend to cater to a lower middle class who are looking for a cheap all inclusive vacation and don't care about anything else.

Absolutely horrible! Not a vacation at all! The food was cold and very sparse. At the beach buffet flys covered the food

Trina J (Playa del Carmen, Mexico) on Dec 04, 2022

This was our 10th time at a Gran Bahia property and first in Jamaica. We had booked 14 nights and left after 6 due to my son getting food poisoning. Flys covered the cold food at the beach buffet. The beds were caving in, no blankets in the rooms. Zero service for drinks, and only two options coke or water for non drinkers.
