Went here for two weeks on holiday with my parents and my 18 year old sister. Check in was slightly confusing because my parents booked a king room and ended up with a twin. (We had also been travelling for around 16 hours at that time) They had however put us on the 9th floor which was pretty perfect and... More

We stayed at the Great Parnassus in September of 2014 and had a great and most pleasurable stay! My wife, myself and my 4 year old daughter were treated like royalty! We are a family who live in the U.S. and realize how important it is that your staff put on a smile and at least say hello and make... More

With my fiancé I had possibly the worst holiday ever whilst staying at this hotel. Firstly we paid for a deluxe ocean view; our room was looking out to some gas pipes. We also paid for a hot tub on the balcony, we had a shower instead. When complaining to the hotel manager he fobbed us off to Thomas Cook.... More

1st of all the hotel and location was decent. The room service is top notch. Its more for families. Adult hotel would be better for couples. Food was good but can be repetitive. We were enjoying our stay until 3 scottish girls arrived and practically took over the hotel. I really enjoyed the "Oktoberfest Bar" until they completely took over... More

Myself and partner booked our holiday to Mexico at the beginning of the year and could not wait to visit the Great Parnassus this September. I had previously stayed in the sister hotel - the Golden Parnassus - and loved every minute therefore had no reason to think the Great would be any different. It was a total let-down!! We... More

My wife and I just came for a 2 weeks vacation at the Great Parnassus with my mom and my brother. It was our third time at this hotel, and it is getting better every time. The food was excellent in all restaurants, with no exception. The La Maison de Michelle has a 5 stars menu. All the staff, were... More

We stayed here on our first trip to Cancun. Nice variety of restaurants. Fantastic beach! The hotel has awesome architecture, as well. Inside it feels like two cruise ships docked side by side. Also, got to enjoy the facilities at sister resort, Golden Parnassus.

We stayed at the Great Parnassus and should have stayed at the Grand. We enjoyed our stay, however, it was packed with children (all very well mannered) and it was difficult moving around. Especially at the pool and beach. The adult pool was nice but not very many (2-4 people) seemed to be there. Going back and forth between facilities... More

We did not stay at this resort, rather we stayed at the sister resort the Golden Parnassus, because it is adults only. We did, however, go to the Great Parnassus twice for dinner at the adults only restaurant on this family resort. It is a French restaurant and while the food at the Golden Parnassus was mediocre, the food in... More
