    Been 9 times but crazy tripling of rates may keep us from our 10th trip

    Brought 10 friends and family for Super Bowl week. Everyone had a blast. Staff was amazing as always. Special shout out to security team who calmly helped one of our party when he was injured diving into the shallow pool. They were wonderful.would love to come back but can’t figure out why our $228 Ocean Double is now $707 a night for February 2024. That’s insane and I keep going back to the website hoping it’s a mistake. GP management - please explain what’s going on with the tripling of the room rates?

    Very good service

    Service was very good. Waiters were wonderful, Melda, Sean (I could be remembering their names wrong), and Oscar were very quick and efficient at the buffet. The only thing was the air conditioning wasn't working properly at the beginning, but they got it fixed. Overall it was a very well taken care of experience from the staff.

    My husband and I stayed at the Golden Parnassus Resort for six nights last week. It needs some major renovations. It is hot, mildew smelling and so run down. Our first night there, it stormed badly and damaged the pool bar. It was closed the remainder of our stay. Understandable, it was beyond the resorts control. The last night we were there it stormed again. It badly damaged the outside seating area for the buffet restaurant and they kept it open! There was water all over the floor, water dripping from damage to the ceiling and roof, and plaster hanging from where it had obviously been repaired before. The food was sub par at best. The buffet didn't have much of a selection, Sumo was bland and there were two restaurants closed the entire time we were there. The best food was from the Breeze, the snack bar at the pool. Fantastic burgers, wings, fries, nachos and potato wedges. They do tacos there in the evening and they come highly recommended. The 24 hour room service was good, too. We ate in a restaurant in the evening and then went back to our room to order room service since we usually didn't care for our food. We asked for a fan for our room since it got so hot that it was difficult to sleep. The air conditioner could not keep up and they have it locked to where guests cannot adjust it. They brought one after us asking at the front desk and then having to call two more times over the course of the day to have it brought up. When it finally did arrive we plugged it in and it started smoking and smelling terribly of melted plastic. We unplugged it right away and set it outside of our room. My husband called the front desk to let them know what happened and we'd need another fan. We were told they would bring one right up. We left for the pool right after this assuming they would bring another one up and take the bad one. We came back to our room laer that eveing to the fan still outside our room and no new fan. We once again went down to the front desk on the way to dinner to request a new one again. We were finally brought a new fan later that evening after having to call once again. The wait staff were all excellent. The bartenders and servers were very helpful and attentive. Its a shame that upper management and the owners have let the resort get to the point it has. We will not be booking the Golden Parnassus again for our next trip to Cancun. I do not recommend wasting your money for this resort.

    Not good for disabled people and hotel has a weird smell

    Lack of communication when booking assessable room. They lied about the beach being assessable. There is a ramp which only goes halfway to the beach and then there are stairs. The whole hotel smelled like mold, and they had a huge hole in the wall. There were ants in the room. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Worst resort in Cancun!

    Not enough space to tell you all the bad about this resort. The resort is ran down! And falling apart. the food is not edible, the daily activities consist of water aerobics, beach, volleyball, and water volleyball and that’s it every day. No evening activities. The jetted tub in our room poured out brown water, A/C didn’t work, toilet leaked and the safe didn’t work. They say they have six restaurants this is not true, the most they have is four because one is permanently closed and only two restaurants are open a day. The drinks are inconsistent. And the pool side service is spotty at best.
