Stayed at Great Parnassus Resort with my young daughter and friend. We loved the hotel. Daughter played at the kid waterslide most of the time. Staff at kids club was very friendly. All inclusive breakfast and lunch were excellent. You always could find something good to eat. Staff very nice. Did not care for dinnertime due to fact that you...

Sorry for short review, but have 3 kids, so little time. GREAT resort, very easy vacation with a family of 5. So much to do, we never left the resort. Excellent customer service in room, in restaurants, by the pool, etc.. will definitely be going back. Definitely get the $100 private roundtrip shuttle.

Great hotel and everything you could ever want or need under one ship like environment! However; please use the saftey deposit boxes given to you as many things went "missing" from people we talked too including my watch from my room - they give the boxes as they dont trust their own staff. On a positive note - the hotel...

I travelled to this resort with my sister and my 2 year old nephew. I picked the resort primarily as it had a children's waterpark. The hotel is very nice and really does resemble a cruise ship. The front lobby is beautiful and the restaurants are well presented and serve good food. This resort had some of the best wait...

This Hotel advertised itself as "Family Friendly" which is why 24 of my family members booked there. My husband and I planned our 10th Wedding Anniversary Renewal of Vow ceremony there and were very disappointed. The list is long but it goes like this: Lack of coordination from the wedding planner, vomit in the pools daily, management unwilling/unale to resolve...

Great food, a lot of variety. Staff was amazing, pools and beaches were beautiful! Very kid friendly. Not sure what the bad reviews are about. People just like to complain..... I travel a lot, this my 4th time to CanCun, first at this resort, and would stay there again! Would go there as a family, not a couples retreat

My husband and I stay at the Golden but would eat some nights at the Great. In the past nine years we have been to the Golden 13 times. We tried three other hotels during our first trips to Cancun and transferred to the Golden each time. We have tried every restaurant at both hotels. There is something for everyone...

After we booked this hotel, I was slightly concerned because there were a lot of bad reviews, but I ignored them and just went with an open mind.

We'd read some reviews before booking and as usual, there were some good & some bad. To the people who left bad reviews, did you stay in the same hotel as us??!! Maybe you were just really unlucky but we could not have asked for more. Food - with so much choice you cannot possibly complain unless you are one...

We stayed at this resort for 11 days. We had a good time, especially around the pool area.
