On Jamaica’s north shore in Runaway Bay, the all-inclusive Gran Bahia hotel enjoys a private beach. The resort’s rooms feature beds with canopies, balconies and Jacuzzis. Four restaurants serve a la carte specialties ranging from Italian to Japanese. Kids will love playing in the three pools, two with children-only areas. Gran runs a children’s activity program, Mini Club, for ages 4 to 12. On the resort, families can engage in water sports like windsurfing and snorkeling. Gran provides the necessary equipment.

We visited the grand bahia in October. We had a wonderful time. Sure it's a little dated but very clean.
Buffett was pretty good. Always something good to eat. Steakhouse was good but not fantastic
We went to the Don Pablo twice loved it. The steak was delicious and tender. Our server Damien was very good. Knew his job and did it well. Always a smile .
If you are looking for pleasant service this is not where you will find it
With a few exceptions we found the bar servers very unfriendly, lobby and pool.
Always friendly and helpful
Kimmikong (spelling ) executive manager was the kindest and sweetest person we ever met while travelling, we travel 3 times a year. Husband has walking issues so she made sure we were in a room close to most things on the resort. Thank you Kimmi.
Don't waste your money. When arriving there is suppose to be robes slippers beach towels and rum in your room
We had none of this. Brought this to the attention of ladies at the golden club and still did not receive anything. We arrived on Saturday and finally got robes on Monday after going to front desk to complain. Had to go to the air transat rep to get the rum which we received on Wednesday. We have always taken golden club at other Bahias we have gone to but this one didn't live up to expectations.
We will consider returning but will be sure to bring a wheelchair for husbands motility issues. Resort is big
We stayed here Oct 26-Nov 02, 2019.
Large group attended for wedding. Everyone seemed to enjoy the vacation.
Rooms were nice. AC worked and was wonderful after a long day out in the heat.
The wedding was beautiful! Wedding dinner/party afterwards perfect!
Don't let a rude bartender/missing facecloths ruin your vacation. You are on vacation time just go with the flow :)
