I'm not a drinker. So I don't know what kind of drinks to even begin to order. But He kept making drinks for us to taste test. I really liked that.

Best part of staying here was it was with friends. The food was average at best. Don't get me wrong, your on the beach in Cancun, with plenty to drink. It has all the basics you need to get some sun and have some fun. But it is operated at the margins, deferring maintenance, replacement, etc.. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a nice ocean view. If you get a deal and are on a budget, this place will work nicely. We will likely not be back.

Lovely resort. Met some really nice people and the drinks were awesome. City buses are only $1 usd and the average taxi ride is $13 usd. The flea market for souvenirs is a hassle. Picachu is their club promoter and awesome! Club La Vaquita for hip hop music. Had a blast and will definitely go back to this resort.

My wife and I went with a group of friends on Nov. of 2015. This is our 6 or 7th trip to the Cancun area. We have stayed at Secrets The Vine (right next door), three of the Riu's, and a place down in Playa del Carmen. This hotel was the smallest out of all of them. But, I have to say the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Pros: Small resort, so you get to know the guest and staff. Food was good. The Old Barn was good as well.

This resort was older, but very well maintained, clean and overall a very nice place. The food was very good and drinks were top notch! The staff was exceptional throughout our stay. The resort was never over crowded and we always had a place by the pool, beach or in any of the restaurants. My husband and I will be going back to this resort, we loved it. We used MTS travel for our shuttle and catamaran/snorkeling trip...highly recommend them

We recently returned from a 7 day stay and we had a great time.We were part of a large (22 people) group which can be challenging but we had a great experience and everyone was very efficient and accommodating. The staff was amazing. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is evidently older and could use some repairs but that didn't effect our stay. I would recommend staying at the Golden Parnassus.

The air conditioning didn't work. If you are looking to drink alcohol the only thing really available is very cheap sweet drinks. No American beer at all. The staff seem to cater more to returning guests. It's almost as if first time guests aren't very important to them. The stay was ok but nothing over the top. Beautiful view. Friendly staff.

The service you Get at The Golden Is the Best! The Staff is the Main reason we always return. The Staff is always smiling and willing to help you and they truly treats us like Family. The only complaint that our group of 12 had was the air in some of the rooms was not as cold as they would have hoped for. The Food is Good and the Hotel is located in a perfect Spot. The Beach is the BEST, anywhere!

This was our 6th trip and it was the first time we were unhappy with menu options and had any issues with our air conditioning.

None of the other guests in our group had any problems with AC.

The food quality and the variety in all the restaurants was excellent. The proximity to the beautiful clean beach and turquoise water was great. We had a very enjoyable time, in what can best be described as a boutique hotel, in comparison with some of the 'monsters' in close proximity.

While the hotel is very clean and the staff very engaging, these positives in no way compensate for the bad food and stark and worn furnishings. I strongly recommend you look elsewhere.

We had a quick 5day/4night getaway to Cancun's Golden Parnassus and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This was our 4th trip to the Resort and reconnecting with many of the servers we consider as family, was one of many highlights.

nice hotel. great service. food is okay not great. nite life is really bad. I am 53. I still want to dance a little without leaving the ground. they had bingo in the bar on a Saturday night. entertainment was not good at all. if you just want to lay by the pool this is a great place. but if you want a little entertainment by the pool or after hours, don't stay at this hotel. again, it has great service and very clean rooms. but it is boring as hell after coming off the beach looking for other ac...

We stayed from Oct. 26-31, I thought it was a nice hotel. It was small and not fancy but it had a nice laid back atmosphere. The staff was excellent and the rooms were clean. The food was very good, we especially enjoyed the Paradise restaurant for breakfast and the steak restaurant for dinner. We even ordered room service a couple of times and it was very good and delivered fast. We loved the pool and the activities around the pool but wished they offered more for evening entertainment. I also ... Read more

Ok..this was my 1st time staying here. As many reviews show the place is a little outdated as far as decor goes. As far as staff, I can not say enough good things about them. From check in, housekeepers, bar staff, and restaurant waiters ( at the buffet ask for Pedro) he is awesome. Great location and ocean views. The outdated decor should not be a reason to stay here.

We had been 4 years ago, loved the resort. This July we brought our adult children, a big mistake. We were very disappointed to find out they had broken ties with the Great Parnassus, the family friendly resort. So they were allowing all the kids stay at the Golden. This is the information we were given at the front desk when we complained about the kids. There were 50 or more teens with chaperones, so the were under 18, all over the resort. After many emails with the travel agent and the reso... Read more

Love the pool area and the on the beach location! The rooms are rather plain and basic, we could have upgraded but chose not to. The staff are wonderful and we enjoyed the food quality. We needed a nice place to stay in between trips and this was perfect.

We stayed at the Great Parnassus last year and were treated poorly. We have an RCI membership there. We went to ask a few questions about the membership and the man tried to sell us more and when we declined he cursed at us even dropping the "F" bomb. The Golden Parnassus is Wonderful! Only th...

Look, you're looking at this hotel because the price is right (am i right?). If this is your honeymoon or momentous occasion id suggest you look elsewhere. However, if you're looking to relax on the beach and have GREAT drinks brought to you, then this is the place. My husband and I wanted a no frills relaxing beach vacation and that's exactly what we got at the Golden Parnassus. There are no bells and whistles... just a kind staff with all the basic necessities. The beach was STUNNING, the food... Read more

It was out first visit to Cancun. Hotel is great for the price that we paid. Was not happy that we were not allowed to go to the Great Parnassus even though when we booked the hotel, thats what was promised and thats one of the reasons we booked it. When we asked the staff about it they said "sorry the two hotels divorced". So just take note you are not allowed to visit the other hotel even if your travel booking says so.

Overall, the resort was very clean & the beach was beautiful. Due to overbooking by our travel agency we were moved to another resort. We were very sad to go & the other resort was not as accommodating or as fun. The food was a lot better at Golden Parnassus too. Would definitely recommend this place & hope to ... Read more

Everything was "pretty good," though not much was outstanding. The staff is the exception. They were all extremely friendly and helpful. The food, drink, room quality, and facilities were acceptably good, but didn't "wow" us. We felt it was a little loud at bedtime, but we did understand that this is a resort and people were there to let their hair down a bit. Still, there are measures that could be taken to mitigate this. All the rooms open on the central atrium which houses a popular bar. The ... Read more

Excellent location, helpful and friendly staff, good food (although I missed some Mexican restaurant apart from the typical tex-mex stuff). Exceptional service everywhere. The resort has a perfect relaxing atmosphere, never crowded, at least during our stay (November). The only bad point in my opinion was that during our stay, we had the extremely lucky coincidence of watching a turtle release. However, they shouldn't allow guests to participate in the turtle release as most of them weren't fo... Read more
