    The place was out of date but had great friendly staff. Everyone was great. Just the place needs to be up to date.

    The staff was awesome, great friendly and very helpful at all times. The restaurant's were very good, but selection of food was limited at times. The staff did keep the place as clean as the could but the place is getting out of date. The rooms could have coffee makers and even a mini fridge to keep cold beverages or snacks in. The outside lighting on the balconies had loosely hanging light sockets only being held by the wiring which was shorting out if touched or moved. Just wrapped in electrical tape. Of the building was updated it would be an awesome place to stay again. Because the staff was great!

    The perfect place to go!

    This was our 6th time at the Golden Parnassus and wouldn't think of going any place else. The staff is to die for, always making sure you are enjoying yourself. The only thing we didn't like was that there isn't any air movement in the lobby bar and gets really hot & muggy. However, Sergio did come to our rescue and found a fan that helped move the air. So much more comfortable!!

    The Most Consistant Resort in Cancun!

    Since my original review of Golden Parnassus we have been several times but, I have not reviewed each trip because it is the same experience each time we have been... As soon as you step out the taxi/shuttle the bell staff will recognize you as a regular or a new visitor and the experience begins - Nothing better than seeing Julian and hear him say "Welcome Home" So, today I am writing a review to say - it hasn't changed! still 5 Star Staff, Lead by Fonzy, Jose, Carlos, Ferman, Edith , Jesus and Nick, John and many others that bust their ass each and every day they show up for work.... 5 Star Entertainment , Martin is by far one spectacular Activity leader and I hope one day that is recognized and he is put in a senior leadership roll at the GP ( Before someone else steals him ) Food and Beverage is still good, portions are perfect ( and you will realize that by the 3rd day) All restaurants are good and quality is above average.. The Shangri-la is the date night restaurant where you get a chance to dress up and have a romantic dinner ( So please Do Not show up in muscle shirts and baseball caps as you wont get in) Lorenzo is the master of specialty coffees! The breakfast / Lunch Buffet is great and has a big selection so.. you cant complain! Oscar will jump through hoops for you if there is dietary restrictions - just give him notice so he can be prepared ..Breakfast in your room?? Give Santiago your order the night before and it will be there at the exact time you want it.. Room service , house keeping are exceptional - The House keeping staff are real good at what they do, they leave the room as fresh everyday as it was when you arrived. Wait Staff all around the resort are very keen and fast.. Room and Personal security on site are never an issue - you feel very safe and in fact you forget about stuff you hear in the news by the first day.. Please don't buy in to the media hype about safety , The Golden has a solid process in place and the staff is well vetted. Every staff member goes the extra mile to assist you and there is never any issues they don't take serious, they will do what ever they can to fix anything that is within their power.. But, like anywhere else $H!t happens and don't think they didn't try everything they could to rectify it.. There may be about 10% of all reviews that rate the Golden less than good but, that's one side of the story.. So.. If you are debating weather to hit purchase on this resort - do not hesitate any longer and book now! This is our home away from home and for many, many others! And please Tip Generously, all inclusive shouldn't deter you from dropping pesos or dollars down for great service - Please make a point of saying thank you to TIO who keeps your pool and beach area clean of butts and garbage, The GP Beach seaweed is being kept up better than most areas so, please dont let this concern you..
