Great Parnassus is an extremely clean and very unique resort reminiscent of a cruise ship. It's located 20 minutes from the airport on a gorgeous beach with water that is breathtakingly beautiful. Although rooms werent ready until 4ish, check in was smooth. As other reviewers have said, you will want to have an even numbered room which are on the...

I stayed for a short 5 days vacation with my husband and toddler. The overall experience was below expectations compared with similar quality hotels in Cancun. Examples: I went to the pool bar one day and they had no glasses, so everyone in the line needed to wait until the waiters could recollect enough from the ones that weren't used...

This was an ok place to stay. Traveled with my husband, 2 kids (13 and 10) and another couple with kids the same age. The Bad: The pools were not heated. My daughter and her friend would barely go in because it was too cold even though the weather was +30 degrees Celsius. They also didn't have any kind of...

Start your trip being upgraded to a suite with a balcony Jacuzzi. Staff will do anything for you. No reservations at ala carte restaurants. Nice small gym with spinning, steam room and sauna.

Just returned 10 days at this resort. It is an older resort that needs some updating. The stall where excellent. Abslom at the Japanese restaurant, and Angel & Ceaser at the lobby bar. The rest of the staff where always willing to answer any questions you had. The buffet at the Magnus was very limited and lacking in dessert selections....

If you're looking for something to complain about, you WILL find it here. The resort is a bit outdated. It looks like a cruise ship as far as the rooms and center open with shops, bars and restaurants.
