Having vacationed at the Great Parnassus previously with the kids, we figured that the Golden would provide the same above quality food for an all-inclusive, which it did. It was smaller and more intimate than the Great, and is well worth the price we paid. A big plus is that the restaurants do not require reservations and provide excellent meals. The steaks (Old Barn) are of decent cuts and the fish is fresh (@ Pier 12). Shang-ri-la offers a fine dining experience and a nice array of selections. I feel, however, that the restaurants are short-staffed, which resulted in slow service. I can see that the staff is truly hustling but I noticed a number of dirty glasses at the restaurant bar as the attention was given to serving the patrons more than cleaning up (a management staffing issue).
Liquor may not be totally top shelf but is sufficient. The service truly excels as the staff remembers you and your preferences (Moses and Edith).
During our visit, some people reserved lounge chairs but that was at a minimum and we were able to find chairs at will. Beach bar was also excellent and very convenient.
On the down side, the resort does not provide free wi-fi. This would be a bigger issue if it were not for the neighboring resort, where you can pick up their free wi-fi if in close enough range.
We have been to many all-inclusives and feel the food was above par as well as the service. Accommodations were clean but not fancy, and well worth the price we paid for this trip.
