Ideal for relaxation. Kid friendly, the staff was really good at creating a fun atmosphere. Clean for quite a large resort. Food was ok and everyday had a special type of food to give the buffet variety. The garden grill makes a decent steak and the others were less than spectacular. The entertainment was a notch better than two other...

I stayed at the Grand Bahia in Punta Cana and it was horrible- this resort in Jamaica is the complete opposite!! We attended a family wedding here and it was beautiful.

My friends and i went to Bahia for a few days. We were warmly welcomed at the front desk.

One exceptional person was our waiter, Mika, who we wanted always to serve us because he is...

Our party of 5 adults and 1 child (of 2 yrs) were reallocated this hotel after our original hotel, Sunset Jamaica Grande, was closed. It was my 6th trip to Jamaica, I have always stayed in Ocho Rios before, so was skeptical about Runaway Bay as there is not much around there. But hey.... what can you do. We were...

Having stayed at this hotel, I have really mixed feelings about the place. Firstly the hotel is massive (almost 1000 rooms). This can be good or bad, depending on what you like. The hotel itself is set in a good location – about 1h from Montego Bay airport, and about 30m from Ocho Rios. We had pre-booked a Sea View...
