I started traveling in 2014, and I was instantly in love. I knew right away that I wanted to travel as much as possible. Then I realized how much I liked to help others experience the places I have been to! I have been to Mexico almost a dozen tim...

We enjoyed Jamaica in January 2023. We stayed at the Bahia Principle (Luxury side, which is adults only. The Grand side is for families.) The resort was located in Runaway Bay. It was about an hour drive to the resort. We did a private transfer with Island Dream Tours and would definitely recommend them. We also had Club Mobay! I would HGHLY recommend Club Mobay. It's a VIP/ Fast Track service in the airport! You pass the long lines and get expedited to the front of the line for customs. You have a designated person to help you navigate the airport also. PLUS you get lounge access!

At the resort we had a corner room on the top floor of building 26, and it had the most amazing views! The food was great also. I would highly recommend emailing the resort about a week before to get dinner reservations. The buffet was good also. I personally prefer the al cart tho. 

There is not much of a beach on the Luxury side of the resort. However, you can walk over the Grand Side and there is a nice beach area. The lobster man comes to the Grand Side also! They come in on a raft style boat, and they cook food right on the boat. You walk out and order from them. The food was amazing!

Every night they have different activities and music in different locations of the resort. So fun things to do each night. They have an activities board to show everything. 


-They do have a kids club on the Grand Side.

-They offer wedding packages.

-You can book excursions on site.

-There is a fitness area on each side of the resort. 

-There is a village /shopping area over on the Grand Side. They do activities there also.
