Let me say first that the resort is spotless clean, and the food is top notch. Our room was large with large bath area and very clean with a great view of the ocean, the entire room floor is tile and the walls are plaster so it is like staying in a real nice cave, cold, loud and not that... More

The service here is wonderful, the staff are a joy to meet and a pleasure to simply to talk to; Pascual, Oscar and Edwin are 3 of the most cheerful waiters on earth with broad smiles and a charming sense of humour. The food is really good and the beer is pretty palatable and available whenever! The Hotel is small... More

Our stay was from the 6th August for 2 weeks, On arrival at the airport we had a 3 hour wait just to get through passport control which you can do without after a 10 hour + flight. On arriving at the hotel we were given room key cards for our 5th floor room on the lagoon side, but these... More

Needless to say, the Resort is very pretty and the staff were for the most part, good. The rooms are nice; however, I wasn't impressed with the air conditioning in the Rooms. The rooms were cool but were damp and my clothing felt damp most of the time. Always a lot of noise when in the rooms due to the... More

Well, first couples of days were OK, then the wheels came off. Basically on Tuesday Mexican officials came in and closed 2 bars and one restaurant. At first the hotel tried to say they were doing repairs but it was obvious these were government signs that sealed the doors. Then on Thursday Mexican officials returned and confiscated furniture, kitchen equipment,... More

Management response:

Dear Customers What you witnessed was a terrible confusion from the local authorities against the Golden Parnassus Resort & Spa. They had a apparent legal procedure to be accomplished in our property, that the hotel was not aware of. Unfortunately everything got clear, right after the good ambiance at the hotel was already disturbed. They closed 1 of our 10... More

Our expectations were met on this vacation which was sort of hastily arranged. My wife and I would return to the Golden Parnassus and hope that the business issues they have which led to some repossession of assets (furniture, pool table etc) can be resolved. It was a bit disconcerting to hear this was going on. Overall I'd say the... More

If you're looking for a "grand" hotel... this is not the one. All in all the stay was good but still left a bit to be desired. I will try to keep it short, so here goes; Food: Very good...all the resturants were above par especially the Old Barn, The staff in the Old Barn was great but in the... More

Pro's Small quaint place with excellant service. We had an excellant ocean view room. Lots of food choices. I loved the fajitas I love the part where the waiters serve you your drinks on the beach.

We just checked out this morning....We loved the resort and staff for the first 3 days of our stay. On Tuesday some government officials visited the resort and closed the two outside bars. This is a credible statement because I saw the CLOSED sign pasted on the bar by the official. Also Tuesday the entire resort ran out of its... More
