Golden Parnassus Cancun
DOMINIQUE E.
Aug 10 2017
Overall my hotel stay at the golden Parnassus was okay. The only issue was I wished Apple Vacations would have specified that golden Parnassus was not air conditioned throughout the hotel. It was extremely hot in the lobby area and in Paradise which was the International Buffet. The fact that check in was at 3 p.m. and I arrived around 12 p.m. was brutal because I had to suffer in that extremely hot lobby for 3 hours. So Apple Vacations definitely should have testified in the description of the hotel that it was not centralized air conditioning. My favorite waiter is was Julian who worked in Paradise, Jesus who was the bartender at the beer gardens and Daniel who was a waiter at shangria.overall it was a good time.

I read the reviews for this hotel before booking our trip. I am grateful I didn't give much value to the negative comments or reviews. The restaurants were good, never waited for a table. The tiki bar with Jesus every evening was a great time. I enjoyed the excerise classes in the pool. However, our 4th day into our vacation my husband has a heart attack. The medical staff was there immediately. Ambulance arrived shortly after my call for help. The concierge was amazing, sitting with me at the hospital to make sure I didn't need anything. My review would have been great before our emergency but I will not stay anywhere else in Cancun.

We had a great time at this hotel. Our goal was to reset and relax. All the staff was friendly and helpful, answered questions. Beach bars are great! Pool was clean and well maintained. Hotel is a little older but we had no issues with our room and the hotel is clean and well maintained.

Would we go back NO and a lot of people that we had talked to said the same thing. A group that had been there numerous times weren't happy with the service and said they would probably look for another resort. the buffet was terrible, the pier 12 was good but the service was very slow. The barn was ok my steak was tough and very small, my husbands was ok. The chairs by the pool and umbrellas were old and needed replacing not enough umbrellas. One older gentleman worked his tail off sweeping the pool area, very nice gentleman but spoke little English if any. Our room was not comfortable very cold and not what we expected for a golden room. I can't believe we were to be charged $10.00 for an extra bottle of water, after I complained they told us to come down to the desk and they would give us and EXTRA bottle if we needed it(all inclusive?)

The language barrier was an issue. Red flags at the beach the entire time was very disappointing and the lack of hot water for 24 hours inconvenient. I ordered a screwdriver drink and got a Mamosa after I tipped the bar tender. Bar tender could not tell the difference between a Long Island Iced Tea and a Long Beach drink. Language barrier was huge. Asked for hot water for tea and got a 'deer in the head lights look'.

Hotel itself is dated but the staff makes up for any of those issues. We had a couple issues with cuts from pool tiles, All in all it was a very nice visit. We loved the smaller resort feel. We loved the food at Pier 12 but the portion sizes are very small and should be reconsidered. The Ole Barn...was our favorite.

The hotel and trip was great and service good. We do have one complaint that I hope can be resolved. The trip to airport from hotel was not very good. Our shuttle was to pick us up with the rest of our group, they did not. We were told we were not on the list to go. We waited as long as we could. Finally the hotel staff called us a taxi that cost us $30.00. This was very upsetting to an otherwise great vacation. We will be contacting you about reimbursement unless you contact us first.

I have been to this hotel 3 times and to Cancun several more. The staff here makes you feel at home and give you a warm and welcome feeling. Its an older resort that could use some upgrades but they are making improvements and the resort was spotless during our stay. We took another couple with us this trip and they loved it too! We are already trying to plan our next visit.

We have been to Cancun 15 times now and have stayed at this hotel 3 times. We LOVE it. The whole staff is very efficient and care about all their guests very much. We want to recognize 2 bartenders Carlos and Moises who are the very best because they remembered us the last time we stayed 2 years ago and can put any bartender to the test in the USA. The only issues we had were that our Apple Rep wasn't there all week. We had to keep going to the front desk and having them contact Apple to get our pick up time. The other issue we had was that apparently the music was too loud on Tuesday and a guest had complained. The management decided to take the stereo out of the Tiki bar and put a system that needed to be volume adjusted by a key. We are here to have fun Management. Give all those Tiki bartenders their original stereo and privileges back because we plan to be back in 2 years to this same hotel.

The staff make the Golden Parnassus and why I keep returning!

I've been coming to the Golden Parnassus for 15 years and see many more visits in my future. The amazing staff that I met 15 years ago and the new staff I continue to meet are the reason I keep coming back. The GP is not a large sprawling resort and for that reason I've met other guests over the years that formed friendships, we meet back at the GP year after year and simply have a blast, not only together but in meeting new people and forming more lasting friendships all coming out of an amazing vacation at the Golden Parnassus! Go for the amazing staff you'll consider family by the time you leave, but also enjoy everything else they have to offer......the food, drink, fun, sun, gorgeous beach and ocean and the lasting friendships you will build!

Awesome stay!

11 of my friends and family came here to help celebrate my 30th birthday. It was an awesome experience! The bartenders were amazing. Martin was a delight. The food was very good. The only issue we had was that a couple members of our party were looking forward to using the pool and it was broken the entire week we were there. Will definitely be coming back here!

We had a great view of the ocean from our balcony. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful, our room was nice. There weren't a lot of people there, so it felt like our own resort. We got to help sea turtles into the ocean, watch mexican dance, eat a nice variety of foods all from our hotel.

GREAT TIME

great time, have been to golden over 50 times, hope to go 50 more. food and staff make the difference. the pool was being worked on but when you are open 365 days a year you have to do repairs as best you can.

The whole stay at hotel was a disaster. We were not able to enjoy The pool and the receptionist was not very friendly. Overall I will not go to this hotel anymore. Please review the rates as the accommodation does not follow the rate that we paid
