“First Time In Cancun”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

My wife and I stayed at the GP in Feb 2014 and it was amazing. From the second we walked in, up until we left the staff were fantastic.

When we arrived we were told our room was not ready, so they upgraded us to the top floor free of charge !! Which also had a jacuzzi, which was a nice surprise.

We really enjoyed the food, there was a good variety. The beach was amazing, very nice & clean.

Overall the resort was fantastic, we will 100% recommend it to others.

Room Tip: free wifi towards the left hand side of the hotel

This trip to Cancun Mexico was a 1st for my husband and i and the golden Parnassus was awesome! They had drinks practially waiting on us when we first arrived! The food was great and never did we have to wait for a table! All the bartenders were super friendly and the entertainers were awesome! Ulisses and Denise are the two that come to mind but they all were great! we had a room facing the ocean, and the room its self was great. I would say the hotel looked alot smaller then some of the other hotels when we walked the beach but we we'll defiantly be going back!

We stayed at GP April 17-24, and they earned an excellent review!!

Check In: Fast, friendly and efficient. Maru and Eric were welcoming and helpful, after a brief chat, we had a bite to eat, and checked into room 630, Oceanside top floor, room was nice, clean, and properly equipped.

Room: Clean and comfortable, (keep in mind this resort is 20 yrs old) ocean view is stunning, room has a hot tub, bed is comfortable, and the bathroom clean and nice. Maid service daily, and the do an excellent job.

Food: We had the buffet daily for breakfast, sat Oceanside, servers out there are great, very personable, always smiling with something nice to say!
Lunch, We at a Pier12 daily, outstanding food and service. The shrimp bisque soup is delicious, and Sebastian and Ivan, again, are excellent servers (My beer was NEVER empty)
Dinner, All the portions, at all the restaurants are much larger than expected. We ate at all of their restaurants, no reservations required, all good, however, we had our best meal( and server Quique was outstanding) down the road at the French restaurant in the sister hotel (Great P) They provided a shuttle down for us, and we walked back, took about 40 min walk....well worth it!

Beach: Beautiful, beautiful beautiful.....enough said.

Pool: Lots of activities going on all over, Entertainment crew works very hard at getting you involved , and the servers keep the drinks coming with a very friendly smile! Beach/pool server Gaby is fantastic, we can't say enough good things about her!

Staff: The ENTIRE staff is excellent, they are all friendly and courteous, very welcoming, and they are genuine. A++ to the employees, all of you!

Negatives:(
Not too much, but, only 2 bottles of 'complimentary' water per day(nothing a good tip can't overcome)
No free Wi-Fi (but Sandos next door does, so, nothing a little walk can't fix)
No Mexican restaurant onsite.......and the one at Great P is only open for lunch, grrrr

Overall, We could not have been happier with our vacation at Golden Parnassus, we miss it already, and can't wait to return!!

Mucho Gracias Amigos!!

First let me say this..... We stayed from April 13th-20th room 324 ocean side!!!! This place was absolutely amazing!!!! Food was great, resort beautiful and very clean, and the staff wow they were all awesome!!!!! We had a great time. Can't wait to go back!!!! Patty, gaby, marina, ulisea, Jose, Carlos, Alfonzo, Maru, Oscar, panchal, and so many more staff were absolutely top notch!!!! The resort is a perfect size!!! Never had any issues!!! Never had to wait for dinner or even on a drink!!! This resort is also very safe... I've read reviews on here and I can't believe what some people had said.... The staff is constantly cleaning they work extremely hard.... We booked with Apple and they were great also!!!! (Apple staff on site) We will be back next year......

Tips: pack a cup from home for drinks.... Bring sunscreen, beach towel, (they provide them also), raft for pool, ( gift shop has them but expensive), also one restaurant is a fancy one and men have to wear closed shoes and pants, bring $$ for tips (the staff deserve it)

just returned from a weeks stay at Golden what a wonderful resort. We have done allinclusives for the past 20 years in various locations. This is one of the top resorts we've stayed at. It's only 20 minutes from the airport. Check in was the most efficient I've ever seen. We had an oceanview on the 3rd floor with a Jacuzzi it was clean and everything worked from the air to the mini fridge. It was cleaned everyday and the fridge was stocked daily. The staff is the most friendliest I've ever come across. Gama was our server for breakfast and lunch. He would have coffee waiting for us before we sat down and made sure the cup was always full. Miguel was our favorite bartender at the beer garden, makes a killer bloodymary. At the pool Gaby was the server and we were never without drinks along with a smile and pleasant conversation. The food was amazing at the buffet and at every restaurant. Our favorite was Pier 12, primarily seafood but they also offered steak and chicken choices. The beach was simply beautiful, with plenty of chairs. The pool, though small compared to other resorts, was never overly crowded and again plenty of chairs. All in all this was a good bang for the buck. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rm #308 great view of the ocean everything worked from the AC to the mini fridge. When...

Well, we just got back yesterday from our short weekend trip to the GP. The resort is an older resort but very well kept and clean. We had requested in advance an upgrade of rooms (for our 20th anniversary) as we had a lagoon view booked. They upgraded us to a "suite" which is a jacuzzi room on the top floor. It was still lagoon view but was the top floor and we were happy with our upgrade. The sunset over the lagoon was awesome. We would have been happy had they not upgraded us though. The only gripe was that one day it was not cleaned. Again, we would have liked it to have been cleaned but we were on vacation and we weren't going to let that damped our spirits.

The food was good. We are used to having a buffet for one of the restaurants in the evening but the sit down style was fine with us. We never had to wait at the restaurants. The Saturday pool party was very good. They bbq outside by the pool, and had plenty of variety. The entertainment after dinner was good but we simply ate and sat at the Tiki Bar for a few drinks.

There were plenty of open loungers during the day. If you want an umbrella then you better prepare to get to the pool fairly early (9-ish) or risk not getting an umbrella. There were close to 20 of them, but I heard complaints each day that some didn't get one. Well, I have news for you, if they put up 50 umbrellas then there would be no sun at the pool!!!! Just saying. We are from Ohio and we were trying to get some sun after all the cold and snow we have had this winter.

The service was as advertised. The bartenders worked very hard to keep up, and drink times were kept to a minimum. We tipped the waitress who worked the pool area each day early on, and we had a continuous flow of drinks come our way.

All in all, we had a wonderful mini vacation, and would recommend this hotel. This was our 10th trip to Cancun, so we have seen 10 different resorts, and we have NEVER been disappointed.

Stayed here with husband and it was an amazing experience. While we were checking in we were offered a free upgrade to a sea view suite vs our lake view. The room and views were amazing. Food was very delicious and they definitely kept us entertained with all the couples games. Our last night there was a great cookout and we had so much the staff is amazing the beach amazing this hotel is just amazing. Great value for the money ! The sand in the beach was like a pillow they kept the areas very clean and the drinks and the pool side and beach were both great bartenders are hilarious.
