We had a great time at this resort. We chose this hotel based on the activities for kids. They loved the water park, beach and pool area, as did we. The rooms were nice and clean. The only complaints we had were the beds weren't very comfy and the food was mediocre but we didn't go hungry by any means.... More

We stayed from Jan 18-25. Great resort for families. Very friendly staff, hotel was clean, beach and pools were pristene. Room was great, minus the shower that changed temps every 30 seconds. My kids really enjoyed the water park, but I was surprised that an adult had to be with them at all times. On our last trip to Cancun,... More

This was a family oriented resort with good value. Kids really enjoyed the pirate ship. The room was clean but not extravagant. Nice having a divided room with bunks for the kids. Nice deck over-looking the ocean. Room service was available 24 hours a day. We ordered bottled water and coffee in the morning....all included, no extra fees. Internet insanely... More

We stayed at this resort for 2 weeks. We have three kids ages 11, 7, 5. The lobby was nice and we were greeted and checked in almost immediately. We were given a room immediately also. The room was average. Very clean with a good view of the sea. We did stay on the even side or the side that... More

This was my kids (10 and 7 years old) first trip to Cancun and we ended up booking at this hotel for the waterslides... although this is not the only hotel on the strip with waterslides. For People/Staff - I give this hotel a 4.5 out of 5... I've rarely met a local in Mexico that wasn't extremely friendly and... More

I was at the Great Parnassus most recently with my sister on a "girls trip". My husband and I will be returning to the Great Parnassus on Feb. 4-11. It will be our 8th visit to the resort. After reading some of the recent reviews, I'm surprised at the negative ones. We have always had an amazing vacation there and... More

This was our second time traveling to Cancun and we liked this hotel better than the previous one we stayed at. We ended up in the lagoon view rooms (the "bad" view!) with Jacuzzis which was really fun. The hotel was older and in needs of repairs but we didn't see a speck of dirt or any bugs the whole...

Like many others I had read up on the reviews leading up to our trip. All in all our stay was not as bad as most negative reviews made it out to be. We travelled to the resort 1/17-1/24 with another couple. Check In: process was quick without any time share pitches. We checked in a bit early which unfortunately... More

We've stayed at a handful of reasonable priced resorts and this one rates the lowest! Pros Beautiful beach Lots of bars and good bartenders Nice enough pools Cons No mini bar.....traveling with young children having cold drinks and somewhere to store their snacks is a must for me Tv didn't work half of our week stay. Had someone come look... More
