In November 2014 was our first trip at this well located hotel. Bravo to the exceptionial service at the Porto Fino restaurant from Capitan Deisser and his staff Gilberto, Alfredo and Paulino! Good choice of a la carte restaurants. Great buffet with a lot of choice and a food court concept that is different from the other hotels that we... More

I stayed at the Great Parnassus resort from Nov 29- Dec 6. This was my first time at the family resort as this was a family vacation with children. I have stayed at the Golden Parnassus Adult only in the past. Nice resort with friendly staff. There was some confusion when we checked in and we had to back to... More

This is our second trip to this hotel. Also, the management boldly invites reviews on Tripadviser. So you know this will be a good review! The hotel is well-placed between the sea and the lagoon. It is oval-shaped, reminiscent of a ship, so all rooms have a sea view. The entrance hall is huge and magnificent, and the ground floor... More

My husband, his sister, our 9 year old granddaughter and I spent a wonderful week in March 2014 at the Great Parnassus. Wonderfully clean, with a great kid's club, beautiful beach and water, we had few complaints. There were some renovations going on but were not obtrusive. The grounds were well kept, the rooms pristine and large. There was a... More

We just returned from a week at the Great Parnassus. We were thrilled with our lagoon suite on the twelveth floor. Very large room with huge balcony. Great view of the golf course and the lagoon; best sunsets ever photographed. Good restaurants; best being La Maison de Michelle with its French cuisine. Other good choices include Big Ben and the...

We travel a whole lot more than average, selected this place for benefit of our 9 year old girl. We had not stayed in the Hotel Zone before, but this area certainly has the best beach of any place we... More

Gilberto and Humberto were incredible with their service and professionalism when we ate at Portofino Restaurant. The hotel itself is amazing as well and we are looking forward to returning next year!

The Good – The staff were all very friendly and accommodating the customer service- 5 star. The hotel and the rooms while in need of a refresh and the decor a bit dated everything was clean. The Bad- Breakfast was the lone meal that I would say was average at best. Unfortunately all other meals were just not good. All... More

We stayed at the Great Parnassus from Dec. 6th-13th. It was our first time staying at an all inclusive resort. We would definitely stay here again. The hotel was very clean. There was staff cleaning at all times. The food was good with a lot of options. We loved having the different restaurants. The Italian was our favorite. The breakfast... More
