4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We are located in Boston MA, searching very nice Resort to take my company there for the anniversary. my expectation is for me to have a good time, look for the service and the treatment for people, the pool, the food and security. That's what I ask for. I will be there July 27 to see what's up.

Resort was ok. 24 hour deli would have been nice! Food was great. Night shows where also great. Room service was horrible at night. Entertainers where awesome. Friendly staff. Rooms where also nice. Overall it was a good family trip. But will not visit this resort again. Will be trying another one.

If you are looking for the red carpet treatment then this hotel isn't for you. We stayed here July 16 with family of 11. This is a family hotel catering for children, if you like night time entertainment then you need to look elsewhere as you won't find it here. We enjoyed our stay, the food was good, clean towels...

Great property, could use a little paint and fresfening up. Perfect for a family with small children. If you expect great service at a budget and have time to wait for it (45-90 min) for room service you can find a bargin here. If you expect 5 star service you'll need to pay for it somewhere else and it will... More

We were 33 people at Cancun Mexico, Great Parnassus. The hotel is so fun with many activities to do for families, couples or loners. Everyday at the pool, there was activities such as water polo, volleyball, basketball, aerobics and certainly a lot of food with the all inclusive deal. Not a pool person, then walk directly to the beach. At... More

To start we have stayed here before and we loved it last time. Firstly we had booked a lagoon view suite which we got but we were disappointed we didn't get little extra touches as advertised on thier website i.e. Fruit bowl & sparkling wine on arrival, house coats slippers and access to the private adult only breakfast restaurant.

We were moved to this hotel by our tour operator because of a 20-hour delay due to technical problems with our plane. We had to stay there for 1 night and to be honest it was awful. Let me start with our room. It seemed it was not used for a very long time. It stank horribly. The shower was... More
