Overall it was good. Management and staff need to be on the same page. One person tells you one thing while another says something totally different. There should be signage in the Lobby informing guest of procedures for booking, getting and results of you Covid test. Waiting in line only to find out you need specific documents that are in your room is not good at all. Especially if you've been waiting a long time. Wearing mask at all times needs to be enforced. I saw many people in the lobby with no mask and throughout the resort. The resort did a good job making sure folks had a temperature check and sanitized hands before entering the dining areas. Though an activities board was posted we never knew what the nightly entertainment was and had to ask. That should be explained and given to you when you check in. I was told Yoga, Pilates and stretching was done at the pool unless inclement weather. Only to be waiting at the pool and find out it's in the gym. The poor instructor had to leave the class every time someone came into the gym to check them in. There should have been 2 people so the morning classes weren't interrupted. As a Privilege guest you should be able to get Premium alcohol at any bar if you have the proper band color, in addition to having food brought to you at the beach, and a towel shack there as well. Let's just say I got my walking in. Donnette B with Housekeeping kept our room cleaned daily. Owen with entertainment did an awesome job with the daily classes at the gym and Aqua aerobics!!! I can't forget the wonder massage from Russhane!! If I could pack you guys in my suitcase I would. THANK YOU for the WONDERFUL job you do! I would definitely visit another Bahia Principe to compare. The food was excellent!!

Excellent adult only vacation spot. My husband and I through the recommendation of Travelling Flipflops booked ten days at the Bahia Principe Luxury resort in February 2019. Our hotel room had the perfect view of the pool and ocean from our junior suite with a king four poster bed. Super comfortable bed, air conditioned, great room service although slow at times but hey you're in Jamaica so slow down! Even though the hotel was full our room was quiet which is very important to us. We always had pool chairs without reserving early, the beach was beautiful. the food was spectacular, the shows typical of resorts which we enjoyed nightly. We were a little worried about the adult only side being full of drunk parties but they shut the pool down prior to dinner hours which allowed for peaceful evenings. The dance club was on site but away from guest rooms so there was no heavy noise to block out the quiet of the Caribbean surf. A great perk was getting a ride on their free golf carts to travel back and forth between the luxury side and the family side. We enjoyed beaches on both sides, even snorkeled for the first time. Travelling Flipflops suggested we see the island safely using Chris Jamaica Tours. We had a driver and air conditioned van to ourselves and toured where ever we wished to go. The driver kept safety in mind not travelling to places he says he wouldn't go himself. This was a highlight of our trip as we really saw the island, not just the resort side of life in Jamaica. We will definitely look to Travelling Flipflops for our next destination but won't hesitate to go back to the Bahia Principle again.

Please don’t go here. It’s terrible. The rooms are dirty and if you are allergic to dust you will really have a tough time. The first day I arrived the hot water wasn’t even working and we had to call the front desk. Throughout our stay the water was not consistently hot. Which is annoying. Btw if you like room service be mindful that it’s only available Sunday through Thursday from 11pm to 7am so pretty much you get room service at the time you would be sleeping. They allow locals. So you may see them on the weekend and there is no reassurance that the locals have to have a negative covid test to book. Also only a few staff members like Ann Marie and Ricardo will treat you well. Most have an attitude. The food is terrible. The 2nd day I asked for jerk chicken and it was red inside which was gross. And they guy who cut up the chicken should have or probably did see that it wasn’t cooked properly but still served it to us. Please don’t waste your money or time. I saw the reviews and didn’t listen. If your used to the luxury side just fyi this place is worded that a motel. I would never stay here even after covid. Also this hotel was used to keep patients who had covid in the beginning of the pandemic. There is an article on it. Please guys read the reviews and don’t stay here. Our driver recommends Iberostar, Hyatt, or grand lady palladium. Don’t stay here you will regret it. Trust me. This place deserves -10 stars.

My friends and I stayed here this past weekend, the food was subpar. Despite said, we had a good time. A big shout out to Kemille at the front desk who even remembered us by name when we were checking out, she really is the star of the show, very polite and helpful, so too was Taneshia who is also from the front desk. I had a massage for my birthday, the entire team at the spa was exceptional, especially Tanya!! 10/10 for her massage. Finally, Kevin from the entertainment team did a fantastic job hosting the Saturday night beach event.

If you are content by simply being in the sun, near water, access to a bar with flip-flops on, then you can consider this. However, if you are looking for a vacation experience, I have had way better at much cheaper resorts. The elements are there for a good time but they are not brought together well. Rooms are dated and feel closed in. Food is underwhelming. Nothing to be excited about. If you like to see bulk and not quality in taste, then you will be fine. Staff is very attentive and polite. Very helpful but you can tell that the issues lie outside of their circle and control. I would not stay at this resort again as my experience was mediocre at best. However, location and size of resort holds a lot of promise if improved.
