For All Ages

This place was great for toddlers to teens. My 5 yr old and I would get up at 8 have breakfast and go to the pirate ship water park area where my 16 yr old would meet us around noon for lunch. My 16 yr old made friends from around the world. There is a teen club, karaoke, daily dj at ocean side pools with activities, the mini golf is hard.... The restaurants were great a wide range from buffet to adults only. The Filet Minion was great! Only issue was no wifi and ac was out for a few days. The no wifi was difficult to deal with. The no ac was awful at times. It even went out in the rooms. They also need more elevators. I would not recommend staying on the upper floors it was a normal 10 min wait for the elevators. We do plan on going back next summer for another 2 weeks. May stay at the same place.

Nice Balance for Families

Rooms are basic but clean, we had a family room and the kids slept well. Pool areas were fun, and plenty of options for adults and kids - event at peak season we still managed to get a deck chair. Food was good, not amazing but lots of variance. The Buffet restaurant needs some cooling as it was generally uncomfortable. Nice entertainment was poor...to non-existent. Shame when you have kids. Bars - very good - lots of cocktails, decent cold beer, lots of mocktails for kids. Staff - Excellant....around pool, in bars and restaurants all very good. Big let down - No Wi-Fi......this is terrible in 2015 that a resort does not offer Wi-Fi services in areas. Also lack of snacks after 10.30pm....poor selection of pastries in the pattiseries. Overall very good for families.

Best Vacation Experience at Resort Ever!

This truly was the best experience at any resort ever! The staff was super friendly and helpful at all times. I didn't really like that they allow smoking, but I'm sure many do appreciate that. I love that they not only include room service but they also have a disposables station in case you want something from the buffet but would rather bring it up to the room. Also, while at the buffet, not only do they have a vast array of food choices, but the servers are constantly waiting on you hand and foot, with the warmest smiles you've ever seen...special shout-out to Wilberto. The room service and housekeeping was always on point. The range of activities, and entertainment is great!!! My kids and I can't wait to go there again!!! Hopefully very, very soon. Best vacation for a single mom of two. I truly hope this level of service doesn't change. I can't think of any other vacation spot I absolutely loved as much. Great job Great Parnassus! Keep up the excellent work!!!!

Great family trip

It was well worth the money we spent on this trip. It was a great trip before our children get older and go off to college. As a family, it was great to bond but there were also times where we could do our own thing.

Good because Cancun was Awesome.

The location made the hotel very good. Otherwise, it is not one of the best for the $$$ I paid. The rooms were ordinary but the hotel and the Amenities were good. From the food front, being a Veggie, I did not have a lot of options. I enjoyed the tropical fruits a lot !!!!

Awesome trip

I like the hotel, but not the staff, staff was rude and discriminatory, if you are not mexican din't worry but if you are be ready to be left aside or be the last to be attended, staffs prefers dollars than MXN, and they will show you the lack of interest.

amazing stay!

There is a great deal of positive to report with this resort. Staff is extremely helpful, cheerful and enthusiastic! Very willing and able to help and accommodate! Wonderful selection of food in large buffet room for all three meals, adequate buffet food set up for eating in between and good selection of free plate restaurants to eat at for dinner. Pools were clean and comfortable. Usually good access to chairs and umbrellas. During 5 days there I never went hungry or thirsty and the only money I spent was on tips for staff. Tipping is not required but the level of great service made me choose to. I strongly recommend the Oceanview suite with jacuzzi on the terrace!! You won't be disappointed!

Family trip

We had a great time over spring break. The hotel was super clean and the room was very relaxing. It would have been nice to know everything that was available, a brochure or map maybe, so we could have seen it all. We were not very satisfied with the attitude we encountered with some of the desk staff when asking questions. The food was good. Everyone was able to find something to eat that was tasty. It was very nice to sit in one of the restaurants a few nights to get out of the din of the buffet area. The kids were particularly fond of the ice cream and cakes. We, on the other hand, spent a lot of time getting coffee!!! One thing that was annoying was the people saving beach chairs and never coming to use them. We saw towels all over the place, holding chairs for people, and never saw the people show up. That seemed really dumb to us - a waste of resources. All in all, it was a great experience.
