Apple recommending The Golden Paranasus
JENNIFER S.
Jun 18 2018
This trip was make the best of it because you paid your money. The first day of the trip ground transportation company took us a party of 10 to the wrong hotel, yikes (oh and the hotel was way better than the hotel where we stayed). When we finally go to our hotel the person who was suppose to meet us was gone for three hours. Our hotel was hot and no accomodating to us having to sit around until we where able to check-in. Oh, and the Lagoon view is the view of the parking lot, Thanks allot for that, taking pictures in the room was not good as well. The only air in the hotel was in your room or in one of the 3 air condition restaurants on the property. The drink where all bottom shelf and no whisky. They were water down. The view outside by the pool side was beautiful. Also, the "club" which wasn't a club wasn't air condition at all, so yeah that was horrible. And to finish this trip our ground transportation had to pick up an additional 2 people which made for a tight fit and very uncomfortable. Over all my 40 birthday trip in Cancun was a bust. Thanks Apple for wasting my money and time, can't get that celebration or date back.

Golden Parnassus

Our overall experience at the Golden Parnassus was good. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We never had to wait in line at the restaurants. There was always chairs available at both the beach and the pool area. Our only complaint would be that the resort is an older facility. It looked a little sad and was in need of a facelift. It rained a considerable amount while we were there. There were many leaks in the ceiling. The staff did a nice job getting it cleaned up, but it did taint our impression of the facility. We’d definitely go back, if they did some maintenance on the building and updated the decor.

Definitely a resort we would return to. However , Alan the Apple rep at the hotel was never there in the afternoon at his scheduled time and the one morning we wanted to book an excursion he was over two hours late. Great bar service. All the staff was super friendly

The water was shut off twice without warning

The water was completely shut off twice while staying there without warning. So we couldn't take a shower or use the restroom. We heard that it was a scheduled shut off that they do it every month. My suggestion was to notified the guest the night before or we could be prepared for it, either by speaker announcement or posters everywhere.

I was recommended the Golden Parnasus adult only resort by a friend. She expressed how friendly and excellent the staff at the resort was. After my visit to the resort I 100% agree with her. The staff was awesome!! They were so nice and went out of their way to ensure that my wife and I had a fabulous time. The resort is not a 5 diamond resort, but is a resort with 5 diamond staff. I would highly recommend a visit to this resort. You will see for your self why so many people continue to come back to it. I for one will be one of those returning to the Golden Parnassus. I have nothing but excellent things to say about my trip their.

I went with 11 other girls to this resort for my Bachelorette party. We arrived in the middle of a tropical storm but upon entry the staff made us forget about it and had drinks flowing - JOSE IS THE BEST! We went to Old Barn Steak House which was alright, coming from Alberta steaks are hard to compare too. We partied hard that first night at the Sixties Bar and had a blast. In the morning 3 of us who had gotten upgraded to the "ocean view rooms" had flooding issues. I know there was a storm so we let them clean and squeegie up the water and didn't want to be too demanding as I'm sure 100 other rooms were also flooding/complaining. One of my friends though had a gaping hole above her bed by the roof that was pouring water and soaked her bed overnight. After bugging the front desk a few times they switched them rooms. Day 2 it was still raining for a bit but we were allowed to go to the pool and being Canadian a little rain didn't stop us. We went to the sushi place for dinner and it was okay. We met the tourist guy at the pool and he set us up with VIP service at Mandela Beach club that night. We all had a great time but when we returned 2 of my girls on separate times got harassed/attacked by Antonio. I heard my roommate scream my name and as I come around the corner she is pushing Antonio off her outside our room door. I guess he kept telling her "shh its okay shh" and trying to push her into her room. I grab her and run to the other girls room where they also say this happened to him. All of us go to the front desk and file a formal complaint. They didn't take us very seriously, and yes were drunk and it was 2 am. I told Jose in the morning and we didn't see Antonio work the rest of the time we were there which was good. Day 3 the pool was open and we had a blast on the beach and in the pool. We went to Shangri - la restaurant before going out and the food, service and experience was awesome. Only issue this day was that our safe broke so we couldn't lock it. Day 4 the sun was shining and it was gorgeous. We hung out with Jose at the swing bar off the beach and floated the rest of the day in the pool. My room toilet started leaking (annoying after our room had been wet from the storm for 2 days) and we asked someone to come look at it. They didn't fix it so we turned the water off until later. We went for dinner at Pier 12 and it was pretty yummy. Also our keys stopped working. I had to go down to the lobby 3 separate times one night because my keys wouldn't work. Then the master key didn't work and then they had to send someone to pick the lock. The front desk told me that if ALL our keys didn't leave the room at the same time they would de-activate them (which doesn't make sense at ALL as other rooms had 3 girls in them with separate keys). But whatever. Day 5 we had a nice relaxing pool day as the weather was amazing. When I went back to my room later that night there was water leaking out into the hallway from our room. The toilet once again was over flowing and leaking. We had 3 people come into our room for an hour and said it was fixed but wasn't. We had to turn the water off over night and couldn't use the toilet which was annoying. Overall the staff are amazing, especially JOSE & RENE. The food is okay, lots of options & variety & room service is available 24/7. The hotel needs some major work & upgrades. Not really a party resort, but the Sixties bar was really fun with the right people.

Ceilings leaked everywhere. Wet towels on the floor under the leaks. Floors were slippery throughout. Room was small and freezing. Could not adjust the thermostat. Tub was useless due to no cold water.

beware of jacuzzi in your suit

the Jacuzzi in suits are filthy. do they even really clean the rooms or just straighten it up...you have to wonder. check with the staff and ask for someone to ensure that its clean. its sad that you have to double check to make sure they clean a certain part of the room when that should be standard.

Incrediblle staff

Our main waiter at the Paradise buffet, Oscar, was just a ray of sunshine. So genuinely sweet and catered to my every whim. The gentleman at the tiki and swing bar were also a major reason that i will be returning. Fermin, Jesus, Julio were my favorites at the bar. These four men will be the main reason for my return to the Golden Parnassus. They made my stay so delightful, made me feel important, and never left my hands empty of a drink or food. Top notch gentlemen!!!
