Our Opinion

A pleasant and modest place to stay in Cancun. Really comfy rooms and suites. The team is super attentive staff ensure that your room is always clean and maintained regularly. The beach is spectacular. The pool pleasant. However, it is a bit smaller than other resorts available, so make sure that you reserve a lounger early in the morning to avoid having to fight for a spot. There are plenty of things to choose from with regards to food options. Overall, the quality of the food is good. Make sure to check out Pier 12 for their seafood and pasta. The bar drinks aren't bad neither. The bartenders are not sparing with their pours! The sister resort, Great Parnassus is a few minutes walk away. This location is really great for those who are wanting swim along a better beach.

A great time at Golden Parnassus

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, my wife and I looked at a lot of places before booking the Golden Parnassus. We read a lot of reviews, and ultimately I think that got us the right spot.When we arrived, we tried to walk up to the counter to check in and the bellman said no -- he sat us down in comfy chairs, brought us the best pina coladas I have ever tasted, and the counter staff came to us. That was generally our experience -- at every turn, the staff tried to help us get what we wanted. (One little hitch -- they forgot to send someone up to help with the bags when we left, but it was 4:30 in the morning, so kinda understandable.)One of our favorite parts of the stay was the Old Barn Restaurant -- great steaks and other drilled meat. But the best part was the staff -- the first night Francisco Ramos was our waiter, and we asked to sit in his section five times in a week. Also wonderful was Susana, the manager/hostess. If you go, try the empanadas as an appetizer -- they call them Argentine Pastry.My wife and I both have experience in retail/service/people industries. We can tell when management is good, because the workers act like people who are properly trained and appreciated. I think management must be good at Golden Parnassus, because it was universally reflected in the attitudes and performance of the staff.We also particularly appreciated the bottle of sparkling wine and the towel-swans and flowers on our bed celebrating our anniversary. The view from our room was beautiful. The bartenders were sometimes inconsistent but always willing to fix something.We like going all-inclusive to make life easier (and less expensive), and we understand that the tradeoff is having to hunt down the things you like from a buffet. We found enough good food at the buffet, and of course we ran into some things we didn't like. That is just how it works, folks -- people from a number of different countries were there, and the flavor profiles are going to be all over the place to accommodate the variety of people.We are not loud evening entertainment people, so we did not spend a lot of time doing that, but we were thrilled to see sea turtles climb the beach a couple of different nights. It is wonderful to see, but, if you do, please stay away from them and don't use flash photography. Let them lay their eggs! The hotel staff moves them later to a special area for them to hatch, then the little ones are released into the ocean.

Cancun visit

The overall stay was good, food need some work, needs better entertainment both at the pool and in the evenings. We were able to book entertainment at another service during the day. Don't count on the bellboys to get your bags loaded when you depart!!! The hotel will send them by taxi to airport at your expense

Hotel employees robbed us

This was the worst hotel experience I have ever encountered. When we initially got to the hotel, there was a crack in our room door. The first night of our stay, we were woken up at 3 AM by 5 hotel employees demanding to be paid $300 cash for the broken door. They accused us of breaking the door and when asked to provide proof, they were unable to give any. After 30 minutes of arguing with the employees, they finally left our room. We were never approached by any hotel employee again about the door until we went to checkout. At that point, the same employee who initially barged into our room approached and would not let the front desk attendant check us out until we paid the $300. When we again refused, he had security block all entrances to the hotel, would not allow our transportation vehicle onto the premises, and said he would call the cops to make us miss our flight if we would not pay. Extortion is never a good business practice and if you make the mistake of staying at this hotel, do so at your own risk. The hotel was also extremely run down, they nickel and dime you at every corner ($0.50 per bottle of water, $2 for US beers, payment for wine at dinner), and the food was terrible. The worst Mexican food I have ever had was in Mexico thanks to this hotel.
