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

My friend and I have just returned from an 8 day stay at the Golden Parnassus. Best holiday of my life. I have never stayed at a resort where you get to know nearly all of the staff, and where they are all absolutely delightful to deal with - and so accommodating! Dulce on reception was so helpful with everything,... More

Upon arrival, we were pleased with the beautiful, open air lobby and we were greeted by very friendly bellmen. We were taken to seats by the lobby bar and offered cold, frozen drinks while we waited for check in. We were spoken to by Mary, one of the time share reps, but she was not pushy at all and very...

Loved the Golden Parnassus from the minute we checked in. Reception staff and porters always ready to help with a "no problem" attitude. Rooms comfortable and spacious, restaurants were fun and food everywhere amazing, all freshly made food, the buffet restaurant for breakfast and lunch had so many choices, the waiters and chefs were so sweet, especially Gamma, Samuel and...

Second time visiting the Golden for me. Myself and partner just back from a ten day stay there (after arriving at the Great Parnassus which was awful - we were actually compensated by a transfer there!) Have no complaints at all. The rooms and décor of the hotel aren't as luxurious as other more expensive hotels in the area but... More

I stayed in the hotel twice for 2 weeks each time in February 2005 and 2007. I am writing this review because I just happened to search this hotel and I still see some of the same faces that were working there when I was there, so I felt compelled to write a review. The hotel is located just off... More

I went to Cancun in 2011 for Spring Break with my family and a friend and his family. This was an AWESOME place to stay. We loved the all-inclusive aspect, though that is popular in that area. The service was also excellent as far as bartenders, maids/housekeepers, servers, concierge, etc. They also had lots of activities to do every day... More
