Just returned from Great Parnassus...first of all ...for an aging complex that is bravely fighting the tropical weather induced damage, and neglect over a long period of time...the staff does a great job of keeping things clean. Our ocean front suite had a great view, but needed a great amount of maintenance. .the so called "steam shower" that was touted...

My wife and I went here May 17 2017 with a Vacation Express/ Travel Zoo special pricing out of Cinci. It is the worst of all the places we have been. We had to change rooms 3 times due to problems and our last room did not have a smoke detector. It took a day and a half to get...

I visit this property in September a few years back. We are returning to Cancun, most likely to this property, again this year. A friend and I tagged along on my sister's vacation with her husband and 3 kids. The hotel is older than some in the area but it didn't make a difference to us. It was clean and...

Great resort for the family. Lots of wonderful food choices. We have 5 in our family and there were always several choices we loved! Small beach but very clean. Short bus trip to down town. but no need to ever leave.

I just spend some few hours in this hotel, since I went to work to Cancún. This hotel is certainly old, and need some mantainance. The hotel is TOO big, not too private. Meals are the classic for all inclusive resorts. They are not good. Rooms are comfortable, but they have a weird design, and old furniture, specially in the...

I had a hard time of how to rate this resort. It is definitely a budget resort and because of that a lot of local people stay here. My first impression was wow, what a nice lobby! It's beautiful. You do not get free wifi thru out this resort so the lobby is always busy with people because of the...

Our family stayed here in 2012 and it was so horrible that after 2 days we paid $1,000 more and moved to another hotel. Anyone saying that this place is great has to be out of their mind. Hotel staff were rude, place was filthy, bird poop on chairs, bar pool was filled with dirty warm water, drinks were disgusting,...
