We had the choice of the Golden Parnassus or the NOW Sapphire for the same price. We chose GP since we had been to NOW last October and wanted to try something new. Granted it was only a 4 day 3 night stay, so we weren't there for anything but sun and beach. The beach is beautiful and there are plenty of beach chairs. No actiivities such as kayaking, etc on site. Beach volleyball and games by the pool were fun. Drinks were plentiful, if watered down (a nice tip helps alleviate this issue) I had trouble finding soda water for a mixer, that was a bit strange.
Restaurants need facitlies upgraded. Had the breakfast buffet, which was plentiful, and they had a made to order omelette station. The Asian restaurant had surprising good sushi, my husband had a steak and liked it. Otherwise we ordered room service that came in a timely fashion.
The rooms, ugh. It felt like a spring break hotel. The thinnest linens I have ever experienced. Scratchy towels. Luke warm water in the shower. Ants on the patio.
The staff was very attentive at all the bars. We had fun at the sixties disco. All the music played at the bars caters to Americans (country/pop). A lot of advertisments for outside clubs (ie. Foam Parties, Club hopping) all over the resort, again giving it a "spring breaker" feel. The small activites staff was fun and welcoming.
All that being said, you get what you pay for, and unfortunately we have paid less to stay at nicer places. Our general consensus is that it is in the process of being sold or closing : (
