For this year's annual winter getaway and bonding time with my daughter and my grandchildren I picked Great Parnassus. The pictures of the Pirate Boat Water Park lured us with its slides, shallow waters and flashy colours. It was simply picture perfect, an ideal place for my grandchildren age 23 months, 3 years and 7 years. We were extremely excited... More

First time in Cancun! Loved this place. Great variety, many different bars, and excellent food selection. Beach area was awesome! The different pool areas were great and relaxing! I continued to hit the second floor bar every night because Guillermo Villalobos was an incredible bartender! Extremely funny, excellent with the drinks, and constantly made us laugh! He went out of... More

Beautiful, spacious resort. Something for everyone. I went with my oldest son and a friend. Upon arrival, the grand open air entrance with the waterfalls stretching across the length of the walls was spectacular. The staff immediately took our luggage off our hands, greeted us friendly and left us with no worries. Every staff member from the beginning to the... More

Had an awesome time here back in October. The highlight of the holiday being our favourite barman Guillermo at the adults bar. Very friendly and accommodating :) if you're an animal lover and visiting here, be sure to visit xcaret! Had an amazing day out we'll never forget

My husband and I stayed here 3 days/3 nights for our honeymoon the 2nd week of Nov. Over all we had a great trip. They kept the rooms and the hotel grounds clean. All the staff from front desk to servers, bartenders, everyone was very nice and friendly. The buffet food breakfast and lunch got a little repetitive, but there... More

Good for families. Not a couples place. The octoberfest bar has two types of mexican beer-no german beer. The wine bar has two house wines. Red and white-both mexican. But the slides are awesome...mini golf ok and food ok for families.

The Great Parnassus is certainly not the most elite all inclusive resort you can find in Cancun, but you wouldn't know that from the service you receive from the staff! I stayed there for 1 week and everyone was so kind and personable that when I checked out, it honestly felt as if I was saying goodbye to family. Everyone,... More

We have just returned from a week stay at the great parnassus and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it! This was mainly down to the wonderful staff working there, I would especially like to mention Matilde Ade who was our barman at the Atlantis pool bar, he was so friendly, polite, courteous and nothing was too much...
