Lots of options and something for everyone. The food was warm and the drinks are cold, the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious...

I liked this place. I got the package through Expedia. The hotel is located on the beach. Several options for dining. Every staff spoke English, broken, but were able to answer all my questions. Very friendly. The family room was very clean. Fresh towels and face cloths each day, no hand towels. The beach has a lifeguard and a security...

A budget friendly family resort with all amenities located closely together. If I were coming without young children, I would likely try a different location; but this resort really is perfect for our young family. The staff their are especially fantastic. We received excellent service from Wilberto, Oscar, and Louis in the buffet area.

Myself, my mom and my friend went on vacation for my 50th Birthday. We had a wonder time and want to do this again. We enjoyed having families around us during our vacation. However, if we wanted to be with adults only the resort has adult only areas available. The overall atmosphere of the resort is comfortable, clean, relaxing and...

I usually read many reviews prior to choosing a resort so I feel I it is fair to leave my opinion for others to consider. Great Parnassus is a solid 3.5 star family resort.
