We've returned again to our "Second Home" for two weeks this August. The incredible staff at the many restaurants and bars truly set this resort apart. Starting at the top with Elpidio Peña and continuing with his waiters (Lucio and Alberto Espinosa @ Magnus, Jairo @ Big Ben, Tere Pech and Abigail @ the pool) and their captains (Humberto Yam),...

I recently got back from the Great Parnassus where I stayed a week. I totally enjoyed the service at the hotel. The hotel is clean beautiful and highly maintained. I wasn't crazy about the food at the buffet (talking quality wise) although you can pick different restaurants ''a la carte''. I loved the french restaurant called La Maison de Michelle.... More

First of all, it isn't a five star hotel and things weren't always perfect and are starting to look a little outdated but we had a brilliant time because of the hard working, dedicated staff who made us feel so welcome and were so friendly. Went here for two weeks with my two children 9 and 12. The hotel is... More
