We just returned from our vacation at golden yesterday and have to tell my experience. Just a little to know because if you have ever stayed at a nice resort you will hate this place. Our room was on the 3rd floor oceanview- huge Palm tree blocking the view, room was so musky and stinky which made the bed, clothes,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Golden Parnassus from December 7-13, 2014. It was wonderful! From the minute we drove up until the minute we drove away, the entire staff could not have been more welcoming, helpful and friendly! We have been to Cancun several times, and check-in can be a bit stressful. Not at the GP! We were... More

Great location in Cancun, not too far from the airport. Great beach and staff. We love staying the the Golden and always venture over to the "sister" Parnassus, the Great for variety in the day. Free shuttle takes you between resorts.

I visited this hotel while staying at its sister hotel the Great Parnasus. It is a 30 minute, pleasant walk, or a free courtesy bus ride away. The Great Parnasus was by far the better hotel, but the Golden Parnassus lunches were fantastic. Although we often walked to the Golden Parnassus just to have a drink there and then leave,... More

An Adults only hotel, small with one 220 rooms but they offer 5 restaurants on site plus additional 19 at sister hotel Great Parnassus. Staff is happy and wonderful. Food is very good and something for everyone. Beach is great, lots of activities and only 25 minutes from the airport. Very safe location and a safe beach to swim in.

My wife and I just returned from a 6 night stay at the Golden Parnassus. This place was just amazing. The staff was what made this place. First, I want to give thanks to the bartenders: Jose, Moises, Carlos, and Charly. The Waiters/Waitress: Carmen, Gaby, and Marcos. The Entertainment staff: Carlos, Elias, Alejandro, Izreal (mexican burrito), Denise, and Janet. And... More

Let me start out by saying I have never written a bad review of the Golden. We have always loved it there and will continue to tell anyone who will listen that's its the best staff in the world bar none. We just completed our 15th stay and it was by far the worst We have to say we are... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week at the GP. We chose the hotel because we have some mobility problems, but are not yet 60, so still want some entertainment, albeit a closer beach, smaller hotel and not too many stairs! GP fit the bill for the most part, but the elevator problems were horrible! During our... More

Amaaaaaazing! That's the word that would describe our experience at Golden Parnassus. I traveled with my boyfriend and it was my first time in Cancun. I did a lot of research trying to find the best place and came across a very good deal at this hotel. I couldn't have made a batter choice. We arrived and were given useful... More
