We've stayed at the Golden Parnassus twice now and have been happy both times. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The beach is a little crowded and people get up at 5am to put towels on beach chairs and then don't come down to the beach until late afternoon. We just threw towels off the chairs and... More

Stayed 8/8/14 through 8/16/14 and could not have had a better time. Traveled with wife, two sisters and their husbands for my 50th birthday. All 5 restaurants were excellent, the staff especially Roger in Pier 12, Oscar in the Paradise, Janeth, Ulysses on the entertainment staff, Fermin and Gabrielle at the beach bar could not do enough for you.

During late 2013 & the first few months of 2014, whilst desperately searching the entire world for the perfect Honeymoon days and nights on end, we didn't know where to go.

Had a wonderful long weekend at the Golden Parnassus. Pool and beach are beautiful beyond words. The staff and service was exceptional. One minor challenge with a leak in our room, but who is in their room with a beautiful beach to spend the day on?! Will definitely be back. Thank you to the entire team for a wonderful getaway!

This was our second stay in cancun and we once again loved it. We stayed at The Hyatt Zilara last time, and would consider The Golden Parnassus a smaller version of it.
