The food was a hit or miss. The seafood restaurant was excellent, however the steak restaurant was horrible. I would have loved to have the option of some authentic Mexican food. We had to venture off the resort to experience that. The hotel provided plenty activities during the day, but durning the evening, the music was turned off by the pool side and activities were scheduled in the lounge. This being an adult resort, beautiful weather, we wanted to enjoy the outside. Very few guest participated. You don’t have to have a DJ for the entire day, just continue playing the music with a iPod. I visioned more partying on the beach and pool side, I could party inside at home. Overall it was a nice getaway and I enjoyed

PROS VS CONS

Excellent service by all especially Carmen, Casper and Jose. Had requested kind bed thru Apple but was not available when we arrived. First room offered smell extremely musty and they transferred us to another room which the pillows and linens smelled like they were washed in sewage water. They replaced pillows but not much better. Wegot notice from Apple before departure of some construction going on but were told no hotel services to be effected. The Japanese restaurant was closed!!!! Only 2 places available to eat dinner! Worst amenenties ever and have been using Apple for over 15 years!!! Gave the Apple rep HUGO the e-mail from apple as he requested and I might as well thrown it in thee trash. He was not receptive whatsoever with our concerns!! EXCELLENT SERVICE and BEACH make up for some of the misfortunes.

It all worked out because my wife didn't mind but I expected a room with a refridgerator and stocked mini bar at least. That didn't happen and wasn't obliged by the hotel staff when I asked about it. I'll be more careful when planning another trip!!

Hotel in need of updating

This customer service at the hotel is outstanding. Everyone treats you like family and always going above and beyond expectations. The hotel itself needs some serious updating from the outdated and ragged looking furniture to the air conditioning. Restaurants are to HOT to eat comfortably.

Staff was friendly, but not exceptional like I had expected. The beach was full of seaweed, something none of the reviews mentioned, but it put a huge damper on our trip. Swimming in seaweed is gross and uncomfortable. We had trouble getting the bartenders attention to order drinks.

The check in process took an hour. The rooms are dated and have a musty smell. The a/c doesn’t work in the rooms or anywhere in the hotel. They want $15 a day for WiFi. Which is ridiculous. The food is mediocre. The same selection everyday. They only have music and some entertainment at the pool till 4 pm. After that there is nothing to do. The night shows are a poor excuse of a show. Pretty simple this place is old and boring. They should shut down and do a complete renovation. I’ve been to Cancun 5 times and this is by far the worst hotel. This is not a golden Apple hotel.

Hotel is very outdated, needs to be renovated. They offered a 12oz water bottle per person per day, if you wanted more bottles, they would have to be purchased. For free water, you had to go to a cooler in the buffet area. Wait staff and hosts at the restaurants would walk away, guest were on their own until they brought out the food. Entertainment staff was great, they had a lot of activities and kept the pool area very lively.

This place was great and the food was really good. It was smaller and not too crowded even in peak season. Ocean view rooms are great and worth the upgrade. Overall super satisfied.

We went to Golden Parnassus adults only hotel in Cancun. The ocean view was perfect and the beach is big and beautiful. The pool is clean. The staff is the friendliest we've ever had. The hotel is older and smaller than most but you get to know the guests and staff. There were 7 places to eat on site. All the food was fantastic.

Great Service with infrastructure issues

Service is Fantastic throughout the resort. All of the staff members are doing their best to serve everyone at the resort. I can't speak highly enough about the service that staff provides to the guests.The resort is clean and staff are very quick to pick/clean up empty cups and plates that have been left around the resort. Located near the middle of the hotel zone. Felt very safe as there is a security guard that checks people and vehicles entering the premises as well as staff on the beach side casually checking that people at the resort have the bracelets that were provided to the guests. It's very easy to get to Aquaworld for a quick excursion and some of the third party partnered excursion venders will even include transportation to the excursion in the hotel zone. Note that they cannot provide transportation back to the hotel because they often don't know when you'll be done. So you'll either need to walk down the hotel zone strip or take the bus back.There is not much to see on the lagoon side rooms, especially if you are on the lower levels of the resort. The view of the lagoon is obscured by the Old Barn Restaurant, Tennis court, and then trees on the main street. The Ocean side view is beautiful.Most of the amenities are fantastic, the gym and outdoor pool and jacuzzi are great. The amenities that are not so great are the gender specific hot tubs, sauna, and steam room. They are relatively run down, and have no view. as a result no one uses them. Buffet and snack bar food is decent, but can become very repetitive quickly as it is nearly the same day to day. Some restaurants have issues with cooking meat to temp. We were served blue meat on multiple occasions. Service is great, but it feels like each restaurant is constantly understaffed. Which can make it feel like you are getting bad service, as wait staff needs to accommodate so many tables.Issues: one of our room smelled like wet towels, sheets were damp on the first night (Possibly from humidity). The toilet plumbing was extremely loud after each flush. Another room had a leaky AC unit that made a large puddle in the opening of the room. We were given a towel to drape there to absorb the drippings. The last room had the supply line of the toiler burst and flood their room. They were prompt to fix the issue, but offered no recourse and no room change. Overall, it was still a great value with the inconveniences. They are in need of updating their rooms, some amenities, and plumbing.

birthday vacation!

Hotel was in a great location, 10mins can ride from downtown and 20-30mins from excursions sites. Food was okay, could’ve been better. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only person who didn’t really seem to care was the only guy at the front desk when we checked in or out. Don’t remember his name. Overall, we had a nice time at the pool and bar.

An older resort in good shape and very clean. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food had variety and was very good. Pool staff was excellent and did a good job getting guests involved. Rooms were large and clean, nice balcony to sit out on. Only negative was Wi-Fi was an additional charge.

Wonderful Staff

Staff makes up for all the small stuff. Fonsi, Fermin, and Jose at the tiki bar are a blast, friendly and fast, Waiters and waitresses go out of their way to make sure ALL your needs are met. Rooms are very clean, could have used extra towels. It was hot and we were showering twice a day. I'm sure if I had said something they would have fixed it. The gym was hot and the weight equipment was old and worn out. Suites did not have couches or chairs. Only two English channels on the TV.
