We stayed there for 5 nights in march. Weather was hot! I don't usually burn but the sun was intense. Bring sunscreen. We walked down the beach for quite a while and our hotel definitely had the nicest stripe on the beach. Some seaweed would float ashore but the water was crystal clear and there were no rocks underfoot. Only... More

My husband and I stayed at the GP Feb 25 - Mar 1 2015. We were very pleased with the hotel overall. The staff was very friendly, the room was nice (wish we had a refrigerator for bottled waters though). The check in process was rather annoying. I think they did it with the best intentions but being told to... More

Stayed here mid February for 11 nights. Check in fine and straight forward. Room clean and spacious just a little dated I suppose. Noise from lift woke us most nights/early mornings noise appeared to travel through the air con ducts. Food was good and enjoyed not having to book at restaurants. Staff were the best thing about the hotel in... More

The Golden Parnassus is in a great location on a beautiful stretch of beach in the middle of the hotel zone. It is older but well maintained, and the staff are very helpful and hardworking. The hotel is somewhat dwarfed by the huge properties surrounding it, but that is a lot of its charm. There is a lot more beach... More

We were a little nervous after reading so many mixed reviews, but we ended up having an amazing time. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a smile and give a fresh drink at the bar. They went through the usual check in procedures, then we were immediately taken to our room. It was exactly what we had booked. A king... More

My wife & I were here for 8 nights. I read tons of reviews about this place & I will say I experienced almost everything that was said, from the good to the bad. We arrived at the resort & were welcomed by the very nice bellmen ("Welcome home"). They grabbed our bags & escorted us to the lobby bar... More

Was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Although we were not allowed to check-in until 3 they supplied us with a greeting drink and we were allowed to wander at will until we could get into our room. The hotel is lovely, the food was fantastic, service was terrific and the hotel staff were endlessly busy cleaning, fixing and smiling... More

Stayed here in March with some friends! What can I say... Read the bad the reviews and cast them a slide. The only complaint I would have is that you have to sit in reception to use the wifi... But then again your on holiday so who needs wifi? Had a great time here. The food was great everyone was... More
