My girlfriend and I just got back from 4 nights at Golden and I must say we had a wonderful time. This was my 2nd time in Cancun and I had such a good time the first time I wanted to make sure this trip was just as good. I did a lot of research before we picked a place... More

Just returned from a great two weeks at the Golden Parnassus, where we were also able to use the facilities at the sister hotel Great Parnassus, 40 minutes walk along the beach or 10 minute transfer by courtesy bus. Loved the food in The Barn, Shanghai La, and Pier 12, as well as the French Restaurant in the Great. But... More

I went with a group of 4 women and really don’t have a single complaint. I figured that I could be most helpful in my review by addressing some of the meaningless nit-picky complaints of others. The food - the food was perfectly fine. If you are going anywhere in Cancun for the food, re-think your vacation and go to... More

The resort was lovely, the restaurants good. Just a couple things I was not pleased with. The resort did not offer any free Wi-Fi service, and only had access through a third party. I paid $30 for five days worth of service and could not get on the internet. I spent over an hour on four occasions talking w/ the... More

Service and people are great. My only big complaint is the mold and musty smell in the room. Had to leave the balcony door open. It was overwhelming. And I've been sick for 2 weeks with a cold and hard time breathing ever since I got back. They need to fix that. We stayed for 6 days. Smell never went... More

This was the first trip to Cancun for my wife and me so there was a bit of a learning curve as far as how things work. Check in was very nice. We were early so they sat us in the atrium garden bar and gave us a "Parnassus" welcome drink. Someone came by and asked for our passports, which... More

Hot water in showers at night, luke warm in the mornings. Safe has key they give you when you check in. Some wear them around their... More
