Worst resort

Tue Feb 21 16:09:16 EST 2017
We went to this resort and it was the worst resort that I have ever been to in Cancun. They water down all the liquor in the bottles. The drinks are awful. No top shelf liquor at all. You have to buy bottled water. The food is just average. It is small old and out dated. And no swim up bar. The safe you have to use a key and there is no combo. The beds were like a toddler bed. No activities at the pool. The staff is very few and not great service at all. If you are looking at this resort. Think twice and look elsewhere.

Excellent

This place was amazing. Food, staff, service, location, everything was perfect. Went here for our honeymoon and could not have been happier. We will be back next year. The beach is beautiful and the margaritas are endless

AMAZING Resort and awesome staff

This was our first time at Golden Parnassus. We loved the size, it wasn't to big and right next to the ocean. If you like great food, great staff, and a simple style of resort...this is the one for you. The beds in the rooms were very confortable. The simplistic style of resort was nice to get around. Fantastic view from all rooms! Just an overall great experience!!! We will be returning. :)

Exceptional beach, great service and loads of friendly guest and staff

Spent 9 delightful days at the Golden Parnassus Adults only resort and really enjoyed every day! Check in was a delight, meet at the front entrance and accompanied to large over-stuff chairs in the spacious lobby where we were welcomed with our choice of beverage. Never had to approach the front desk during check in as everything was done for us. I have been in the travel business for many years and know what to expect when I visit a resort and when I write a review. This was the best check in I have ever experienced! Although an older resort the property is meticulously maintained. Rooms are older but above average when it comes to cleanliness. Our party of 3 couples were all on the 6th floor and the ocean view and the lagoon view were equally impressive. Nice private balcony allows for assume sunrise and sunsets with enough room for 4 people. Rooms feature 24 hour room service (did not partake but menu looked appealing and plentiful) and are spacious enough and have a jet tub and mini fridge that was restocked daily. 2 Bottles of water per day in the room. If more was needed you could refill with filtered water at several places throughout the resort. We never had a problem and when we did drink our 2 bottles there were 2 more awaiting us the next morning. Shower was large and pressure strong we never had a problem with hot water. Bathroom somewhat smaller than I am used to but did not pose a problem. Overall there were no problems with the room. After all we were there to change and sleep. As mentioned lobby was spacious, I have visited larger resorts with grand lobbies however the lobby at the Golden was large enough and tastefully decorated. The lobby bar had several stools or if you prefer you can sit at high tops or tables. Seats were always plentiful and service was top notch. At the bar you had your choice of 2 beers and liquor and specialty drinks. I have read several comments that the liquor was "watered down" so I decided to experiment. As a Captain Morgan drinker I requested a shot of an opened bottle vs a shot from an unopened Captain. Sipping each and cleansing my pallet between I honestly can say from many years of experience that the booze is not watered down. Speaking of bars don't miss the "Dolphin Bar". Great location where your feet never leave the sand, unless of course you are swinging on the bar stools! Drinks served ice cold with a friendly smile each time. I have to say I loved never having to leave the beach while getting a drink. If you prefer there is beach waiters who will bring your drink to your lounge chair. I should point out that I never had to awake early mornings and run to the beach or pool to save chairs. Oh and the beach- Best Beach with snowy white sand, no rocks, sea weed and never a crowd! If you were to walk along the beach you would notice the crowded beaches at other more pricey large resorts like Beaches, Hard Rock etc. Not the Golden it is a beach lovers dream. Some reviews mention the noisy crowd at the pool bar. Lets face it people are on vacation and want to have fun! I am in my late 50's and enjoyed the friendly people at this par and watching the young and old mix and have lots of laughs and good times. If this is not your thing, no need to partake as the lobby bar is much more reserved and might better suit your lifestyle. Besides the lobby bar there is the 60s bar where you can watch sports on several tv's, enjoy a game of pool or ping pong or perhaps participate in the black jack games run by the entertainment staff. Entertainment was OK, the staff was very friendly and did there best to get you involved, however being a smaller resort they did not have the extravagant shows like some of the larger properties. The Michael Jackson show was very well done and games around the pool were lots of fun. I especially enjoyed the pool volleyball. THE FOOD - !st the buffet - excellent is the best way to describe the quality and assortment! Out of all the resort buffets including cruises this was by far the best I have ever dined at! So many hot and cold choices including lots of fresh fruit. Mornings for breakfast had so many choices that we had difficulty selecting what we wanted. Tons of bacon, potatoes, fresh waffles, pan cakes, eggs, omelets made to order the list goes on. Lunch was the same with excellent choices including fresh PEALED Shrimp. Our waiter Gamma could not have been more accommodating and we hated to say good by! Our favorite restaurant was Pier restaurant! Great outside ocean views, grouper and shrimp were so good we went back 3 times!! We also ate at the Old Barn and enjoyed the NY Strip. Shangri la Restaurant required pants for men and no open shoes for ladies. Although I would rather not have to bring and ware pants it was a very nice evening in a upscale atmosphere and the food was very good. I think the ladies enjoyed dressing up and it was no bid deal for us guys. I was disappointed in the Japanese Restaurant menu choices as I was expecting a Hibachi type presentation. We did not eat at this restaurant but for those who enjoy sushi I heard it was very good. The staff was always accommodating and always smiling! Special thanks to Dawn Mackinnon for helping arrange our stay! I should also mention that the bus stop is close by and safe to take a bus to downtown Cancun. And for only $1.00 each way a real bargain. I hope I did not leave anything out, the best I can say is that if you are looking for a great beach, great above average food and friendly non crowded atmosphere this is the place for you. It is not a elegant overcrowded resort but rather a great size without having to use golf carts to get from place to place so if that is what you are looking for then this is not for you. I honestly can say of all the vacations I have taken including cruises and upscale resorts this was abasolutly hands down my favorite. In fact I usually do not make it a practice to repeat the same resort right away but with the Golden Parnassuses I will return next year!! 5 stars for me!

Awesome! Excellente! Muy Bien!

From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, we were treated like royalty! The hospitality was impeccable, the location was convenient, the beach was gorgeous and the staff was top notch! We were there for 4 days and did not want to leave. There was a great variety of restaraunt and bar choices, always events going on and activities to do. We spent most of our day by the pool and beach and at the Dolphin Tiki bar with the swings. José was our absolute favorite! Highly recommend seeing him when you are there! Our last day/night was my birthday and they sure made me feel special! Birthday deserts complete with singing and the whole nine yards! :) We decided to splurge on our last night and had dinner on the beach in our own private cabana. Luis and Fernando made the experience absolutley unforgettable! Great, speedy service and absolutely delicious food! Honestly the only thing that would make this resort better would be if they had a swim up bar, other than that - no complaints! Thanks for everything guys! -Kelsey & Tom
