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. The wait staff and service staff was second to none and the food was outstanding. The hotel was a bit dated, however the staff kept it up and... More

The common areas are very nice. Food was pretty good too as I read in most reviews, so thanks for the honesty. Rooms are one of the low points of the trip, very basic with bad lighting. No art work on the walls and only a couple plugs that seems to be loose in most rooms. We were a group... More

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night trip from 7/31-8/5. We have mixed feelings leaving this resort. I would like to give it 5 stars based on all of the positive experiences but the negative experience keeps playing a toll. Positives: The waiters, waitresses, hosts, hostesses, cooks and entertainment staff are amazing! They are what make this... More
