“Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

The Golden Crown Paradise is one of the best places I have visited in Mexico. The food was excellent, the staff absolutely great. I would recommend this hotel anytime and plan on going back next year.

Went to GCP Sept 4th-11th had a great time hotel is a little older but quite comfortable had oceanfront room 2nd floor great view yes the beds are firm but we like it that way and sleeping to the waves was wonderful weather was off and on wicked storm the night we got there sat at breeze bar and enjoyed over all weather was good did rain everynight but oh well that,s the chance you take in the rainy season.Being the quiet season there was not many people had no problem moving around or getting dinner reservations staff were great especially Augustin at breeze bar very wonderful man as well as all staff when not by pool or walking around spent many time at breeze bar on the beach.No complaint,s with the food we ate at all restuarants except one the french so not sure what it was like others said very good did get sick one night but not sure what it was?The free city and tequila distillery tour is a must up in the mountains had ablast.Easy walk around to marina flee market grocery store and mall.Over all would we stay there again definately the only thing that was not the best where the venders they are every where but what do you do there trying to make a living just say no and ignore after a day or two they remember your face and don,t bug you as much.P.S If you like wine buy it at the grocery store as the house wine tastes like vinegar!!!

My sister and I stayed for 10 days at GCP. While our room was a bit small, it was very clean, had a great balcony with ocean view and a great marble bathtub! The beds were a bit hard - I loved them! We found the food the be very good although breakfast and lunch were a bit lackluster. Dinner was excellent at each of the restaurants we tried. While we didn't try the spa at the hotel, we found a newly opened spa directly across the street that had just opened. It's called Magestic Massage and they were just incredible! For $55 an hour for two people, it was more than a bargain and we had a massage every day!!!!
The staff is to a person very nice and helpful. My only complaint would be that they did not keep adequate change at the front desk, even in pesos. A real value for the price!

This is my third time staying at the GCP resort so clearly I enjoy this resort very much. What brings me back? I would say the incredible staff makes the visit very enjoyable. I find them to be extremely attentive to needs and strive to make your stay enjoyable. Every person I have encountered, whether it is a maintenance person, waiter, bartender, bell boy, housekeeper etc, is very friendly, say hello and greet you with a pleasant smile. The front dest is wonderful in answering questions and providing assistance.

For me it's become like going home with many familiar faces and friends. I'm impressed with how hard everyone works, the energy they put into their jobs and how dedicated they are to what they do. I'm saddened that others have experienced other than a stellar experience because this has not been my experience. i will say that housekeeping has slipped slightly, but with a simple request, towels were brought immediately.

drinks were great, food was good. I enjoyed Salvadors a great deal and found many yummy things to eat. I have to say the pork tacos by the pool bar are so yummy.
Yes, the club nitro is sorta corny, but we made a party there every single night and had a terrific time. the other guests were fun to get to know and a kick to hang with. It seemed that those who wanted to relax and stay to themselves were able and those who wanted to participate and whoop it up a bit could. It seems there was something for everyone.
thank you to Jorge, Janet, Andrea, Martin, Cesar, Paul, Jorge2 for making the activities so much fun! Oh and the Nitro club crew: Randy, Julio, Gil, Omar and Emmanuel were awesome!
I think everyone finds what they are looking for. I look for a comfortable, clean, happy place that is a lot of fun.. I think i found it.
Good Job GCP!

We had an wonderful time at this resort! Our check in was really fast and smooth, The food was actually good, they always had new menu everyday and always something good to pick from. And booking for resturants was also really easy and quick as they are open for bookings from 9 to 5. There was only one pool, but the season we went in was not busy so we always found a good spot, They always had activities going on during the day from time to time. So if you are the person who likes to be in games and all there you go and if you are the person who just likes to keep to yourslef then you can just say no and carry on in the pool. We met lot of people who was they for the 2nd or 4th time because they liked the resort that much. The beach was also good thinking you are in PV. A lot of vendors on the beach but the hotel cant do much about it, however the vendors are also good they do not force you if you just say no and look away. :)
THE STAFF WAS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!! 5 STARS FOR TE FRIENDLY AND ALWAYS EFFECTIVE! From the waiters to the bartender, to the secuirty gurad, the bartender always had your drink fillled before you could even ask, as well as they always remember you by your name and also never made you bored by sittting in the bar. Very friendly, if you get a chance say hie to the bartender Pablo. We got drunk couple of times and came back to the hotel, but THE SECUIRTY GUARDS WERE LIKE ANGLES WHO ALWAYS TOOK GOOD CARE OF YOU and make sure that you return to your room safe and sound. They also were extra helpful by telling you how much you should be paying the the cab for a certain place to make sure you dont get rip.
Overall a great resort and we had a great time! :)

There aren't many all adult all inclusive properties. At check in we knew we would transfer. Clue: We were handed a key to the room, the lock for the in room safe, and a television remote control that would cost $65 US if we failed to return it. This property didn't meet our expectations for five star or luxury. The on line brochure includes pictures that are at least 10 or more years old. After 3 unsuccesful attempts to find us a room, (the first one wreaked of mildew; the second one was already occupied; and, the third one, which promised to be great, overlooked the thatched roof of the beach bar. We lasted one night. We transferred to a hotel that was all inclusice, children of all ages allowed, thirty minutes in the opposite direction.

We went to PV during the rainy season (May to Oct). Although we were rained on everyday, the Golden Crown Paradise Resort made our stay a great vacation. The staff bent over backwards to help us out. We enjoyed the meals at all the resturants. The room service was hit-and-miss. Sometimes they forgot items, sometimes they doubled up on orders, and sometimes they just gave us something we didn't ask for. However, it was no big deal since this was an all-inclusive. We just called them and within a few minutes they had something else for us.

Carlos, Yoshio, Raul, and Filipe were fabulous waiters. I usually don't like Mexican food, but they continually made accomodations to "Americanize" my meals. Try their "Sexy Coffee" (aka Spanish Coffee if you are at the French restuarant). It was so good, that I had them make 3 of them for me in one night!

We had the deluxe Ocean Front room, so we had a fabulous view of the water. We were lulled to sleep every night with the crashing waves and woke to the the cheerful sounds of a little bird that lived in a tree near our balcony. The room was clean, the cleaning folks did a great job every morning and during the turn down service. No complaints on the room!

All in all, this hotel made our stay in PV comfortable and we look forward to visiting them again next year.
