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.

Honeymoon

Overall a great trip! We went for our honeymoon. Pier 12 was great but there was one server who was slow and rude. The view and tuna steak made up for it! The Dolphin bar on the beach was great and so was the tiki bar. The inside bar knew alot more drinks and was awesome. Sumo was not very good and the sushi tasted old. Paradise was good for breakfast and fine for lunch. Shang ri la was ok, the only good thing we got was the stuffed chicken and one waiter made us a Mayan coffee which was AMAZING! The shows were good, you can tell they really tried. Room service was always cold and soggy but it was nice that it was included. The Old Barn was the highlight for sure, it was consistently great steaks and service! The beach was amazing and there was almost always a tiki hut available to stay in the shade if you want! If you book through expedia they will have a representative at the resort but Pedro didnt show up one day and when he was there he had the wrong flight time for us an initially scheduled pickup for the wrong time, we had to go back and fix it again with someone else because he wasnt there again. Overall great experience and would suggest it for the value!

Beautiful beach front with Avg Hotel

Cons: We arrived at the Golden Parnassus Cancun after staying at another resort in Playa Del Carmen for 3 days. We arrived around 10:30am and were unable to check into our room until 3pm. They told us they had upgraded rooms available for an additional cost, but we didnt want to spend an additional $50 per night. This meant keeping our bags out in the open lobby. We were able to change clothes in the lobby restrooms, but this meant digging through our luggage out in the open. (positive: We were given our all-inclusive bracelets so we were able to enjoy lunch/drinks while waiting). Once we were able to check in our room had 2 single beds vs the 1 king. Must have been an error on the travel agents part. They were able to offer us another room without a view on the 1st floor which we were okay with (due to convenience). The room had a weird smell to it compared to the 1st room. There was definitely a sewage aroma throughout the 1st floor hallway and through our room. We slept with the balcony door open both nights because we couldnt take it. Our sinuses were all messed up after the first night (had to buy some meds from the pharmacy). Definitely recommend not staying on the first floor if at all possible.Pros: View was spectacular from the hotel and the beach was very clean. Loved the little huts and chairs that were on the beach free of charge. Outside bar was very convenient. Staff was very friendly. Favorite drink by far was their "Golden Panassus" go figure! Food was average, nothing over the top, but nothing bad either. Wish they offered a Mexican Cuisine. You would be surprised how hard it is to find Mexican food in Mexico! Hotel was average... nothing spectacular and nothing bad. Could be updated (the same as most resorts). Overall we enjoyed ourselves. Gorgeous gorgeous view and fun environment!

Friendly budget

Let me put it this way, this is the *perfect* hotel to travel to Cancun on a budget and you get what you pay for. The pool is nice and clean, the beach is well-kept, and the drinks are good. I've been traveling to Cancun for years and even lived there at one point, but this hotel, while it is nice, it's not the best of the best as far as food and service. The rooms are okay, Don't get me wrong, we still enjoyed our time there and took advantage of the all-inclusive feature and amenities. The concierge, Jonathan, was *amazing!* he went way above and beyond to set up a dinner for my fiancé and I at the beach and made sure everything was perfect up until that very moment. All the staff was super nice too and very attentive.

Family fun in the sun

Very fun, we all had a great time, the weather was awesome.We had plenty to eat, BTW the food everywhere was very delicious, the buffets, restaurants, and room service. We also tried several new alcohol shots, including new ways to drink Tequila, I cannot explain them in detail, because what happens at the Dolphin bar on the beach,,, Stays at the Dolphin bar on the beach, highly recommended it was very entertaining, Thank You!Now back to the snow and cold here in Minnesota......

Golden Parnassus Review

Very attentive staff - everyone remembers your name and preferences. You feel right at home from the time of check-in. Beds are extremely comfortable. Bars and bartenders are some of the very best around. Breakfast buffet is delicious. Must try the Filet Mignon at the Old Barn restaurant - it melts in your mouth. Spend the money to order off the wine list at dinner. Highly recommend the Golden Parnassus!
