1st room air did not work and there was hair on the bed as well as someones earring back on the floor. After multiple calls to the front desk, that went either ignored, placed on hold or the phone was just hung up, I finally walked to the desk where I had to wait after two kind gentlemen helped locate another room for me and my family. The next room air worked fine but we had an issue with housekeeping giving us clean washcloths.

Several problems with booking, like our request for adjoining rooms with 1 king & 2 doubles was ignored. And almost daily propositions to buy marijuana by “visitors” at the resort, some were staff. But the worst were roaches! The resort was at capacity so a room change for both rooms wasn’t possible. They supposedly exterminated - but we still saw 2 or 3 in the bathroom. Was very disappointed by the cleanliness of the resort, never experienced roaches before ever traveling throughout the Caribbean! Love Jamaica, but won’t ever go back to Grand Bahia Principe!
