We stayed at the hotel for our first holiday to Cancun. We had a sea view room facing Iberostar hotel on 11th floor and we stayed for 11 nights. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Checkin was slow and you get no information on hotel facilities. Room: Our room was spacious with 2 double beds (small doubles!), jacuzzi... More

Rooms: I've stayed in Cancun 5 times now so I am fairly familiar with the hotel strip and amenities. I found this hotel to be one of the nosier ones I have been too. It is shaped like a cruise ship. so every time a door gets slammed all 12 floors hear it. it has the usual concrete floors and... More

If you're looking for a nice place with great service, this fits the bill. Waiters were great...rooms were clean, but showing their age. Food was average at the buffets. The sit down restaurants had better food. Front desk if very slow. Only 2 people working, and it's the only place to exchange money so you had to wait while people... More

3 Star at best. Staff at resort were fabulous, but resort is a bit rundown. Bathrooms were rotted due to age and salt water perhaps. Our plugs were black from mildew. Restaurants were available with lineups to eat. Food was ok, but offered small portions. Hotel has a circular buffet and it had NO change to their menu. Same things... More

I have just returned from a week long stay at the Great Parnussus in Cancun. I have been to many AI's and this one had by far the best cuisine I have experienced. The main buffet was just ok, but the al a carte restaurants were awesome. The room was clean and staff beyond friendly. I would recommend this to... More

Starting at the airport. You are at 12-15 minute cab ride from the airport to hotel. If you wish to not wait for others, it will cost you 40-50$ depending on your negotiation abilities and less if you get there in slower times (it was nuts when we got there) Bellboys got us a taxi back for 25$ US. Use... More

All drinking establishments including the pool bars only include draft beer (no other choices for beer) and their house wine which is not drinkable was their only option unless you wanted to pay a surcharge. They do have premium brands of alcohol on their displays but they are not used unless you specifically ask for them. Food is okay but... More

We spent February 18-25th at Great Parnassus with 2 other couples. We had a great time. The resort was very nice. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful during our stay. The food options were very good and our restaurant staff were awesome. Ruben and Jorge at Big Ben started our great service the first evening of our stay. We... More
