We spent the first week of March at the Don Pablo Collection of the Grand Bahia and only have good things to say! First of all, we were welcomed like old friends by Cordel on the front desk and introduced to our butler, Garcon. We made a point to go back to the lounge to meet Sanita who I had met through email before arriving. She was spectactular in arranging for our a la carte restaurant reservations, made suggestions and ensured that we had great rooms. Nicole too was always there for us. The girls at the bar (Kayann and Monique) were always ready with a smile and to fix a quick drink. Donnette, our housekeeper was so funny, thorough and our room(s) were always spotless.
We liked the fact that the beach was a bit of a walk as it helped neutralize all the extra food (which was plentiful) and bar drinks. Our favourite restaurant was the Don Pablo where we dined twice - both times exceeding expectations. The Italian perhaps was the least fav.
On a recommendation, we hired a taxi for a day and went into Ocho Rios. I would highly recommend Paul Williams. He was funny, took us to all the right places and made our day more than just a little entertaining. http://www.paulsjamaicatours.com/
There were four of us travelling together which we do every year and we unanimously agreed that this resort and specifically the Don Pablo collection was the best. The staff for sure made it so.
