This hotel is huge catering for families and couples, the private beach is fantastic the hotel shadows the beach from the sun about 4pm but then you can move to the adult pool which is located on second floor, very quiet great bar man with a pool and jacuzzi. The best restaurant is the French and no booking required. Worse... More

Resort itself is nice, especially the bell boy Pedro. However, consider yourself warned!! There are so many scam artists at this hotel. Specifically at this resort was an individual named Tom Skaperda. He is apparently an unethical American who spends his time in Cancun selling memberships to people by lying on what they are to receive. Background: My sister and... More

Like any place, you are going to find your issues, but ultimately, this place was a great place to spend 8 days! Entertainment: If you are travelling with children... this is the place for you. They cater to adults and children very well. I brought an 11 year old and a 13 year old and we all had an amazing... More

We stayed at the Great Parnassus for 6 days on our family vacation. We had 23 people in the group. On arrival checkin was simple, we did have problems with some of our rooms but the front desk staff were great in helping us move to other rooms. Hotel does need some renovation as the rooms are starting to look... More

The buffet was not good at all, so we were... More

The hotel is very grand looking and the lobby is impressive. The staff is hit and miss for good customer service. Most of them are nice, but a few are not as nice. They are not rude or anything, just don't smile much. It seems they are overworked though, that might be the issue. I noticed employees that were working... More

We returned from Mexico last week and struggle to understand all of the negativity about this hotel. Upon arrival the bell boys took our baggage so that we could check in. Check in was quick and efficient, we then had our bags taken up to our room both members of staff were friendly and helpful. The only issue we really... More
