My wife and I will be at the Golden on October 9th for our fourth visit in the last two years and, after a trip in July to a "5 star" resort near Tulum, know that the Golden is truly "Golden". The food is often maligned in these reports but we've always enjoyed the cuisine and the choices offered. I... More

I expected more from this place first off it was touted as a 5 star Hotel by the travel company who sold this to us. There was nothing 5 star about this place at all. We had an all exclusive deal however the food was mediocre to say the least. The buffet had some very overcooked food and they precook... More

Tried this resort for our 4th annual girls trip (Sept 19 - 22) and we were not disappointed!! The property is small and moderately priced and a great value for the money. Food was hands down the best "all inclusive" food we have experienced , beach was amazing with it's beautiful aqua blue waters. Every staff member was friendly and... More

First of all the negative reviews were not accurate in our point of view. Our group (4- 1 guy, 3 girls) enjoyed every minute while we were there. The staff was always asking us if we needed food or drinks, even while were at the beach. When we arrived they sat us by the lobby/bar area to do the check... More

I chose the Golden Parnassus because of its smaller size and adults only policy. The rooms were clean and comfortable (barring a pillow that reeked of body odor), the restaurants were varied, and the beach was fantastic. I was especially happy because down the road at some of the larger resorts the beach was clearly not as nice. The smaller... More

This is my 5th time in cancun, I've never had a negative experience with any of the resorts I've stayed, however staying here was awesome since. The Golden parnasus is a mall resort compared to other resorts I've been in, never the less my friends and I enjoyed our stay tremendously. The staff were welcoming and attentive, can't say enough...

After reading the reviews for this resort, my friends and I were a bit nervous. Forget about what you read! At least from our point of view. After arriving, we were greeted by Mary who sat us down and discussed the resort and explained the restaurants to us. Our room wasn't ready but we were invited to change in the... More
