    Great spot if you dont mind an outdated hotel.

    Staff is great, probably hotel's biggest plus. Pricing is also good, just be aware that hotel is outdated and needs some work. Rooms dont have fridges and ACs arent that strong. If you dont mind occasional imperfections then this place will do the job.

    Would recommend for other couples! I did not see one child so that’s a plus! The staff were great and very helpful. This was my first all inclusive trip and I must say from now on that is the only things I’m booking!

    good people especially under conditions. some parts of facility are a little under older condition need freshening up. rooms need a little fridge. and shower difficult to start up. need to get doors so can get to controls to turn on with out getting a cold splash in the morning. overall good people and service. pool games and workers were great.

    First of all Fernando was great to work with at the front desk. He had us check out 3 rooms to decide which one we liked the best. I thought I needed a refrigerator in the room but with 24hr room service you do not need the fridge. We stayed on the 5th floor oceanfront in the middle and watched the sun rise while drinking coffee every morning on our balcony. Ocean front rooms are even numbers 2 - 40 with 522 being in the middle and perfect. I am sad to say we cannot remember our guy who brought us breakfast and coffee every morning. He was great and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. This is an older hotel and on the smaller side. The place was clean! My wife is a nurse and really appreciated how clean and sterile everything was. We worked out in the gym 3 of our 5 days. You need to make an appointment at the front desk. We were the only ones in the gym for our workouts. They don't have much for free weights but you can get a good workout in. The pool is beautiful and the pool bar is fun and actually about the only night life. They open at 10am and close at 11pm. Jesus is an excellent bartender and they do a great job remembering you. We spent most of our time on the beautiful beach. My wife went down every morning and saved our lounge chairs. Carmen is the waitress at the beach and did a great job keeping us hydrated and always with a smile. She works her ass off. Tip her well. It was sad to see a few people were very rude to her around the pool one day. All of the staff go out of their way to help you enjoy your vacation. They get it. Food - We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food in the restaurants. We ate at the restaurant behind the pool bar a couple of times. The best grouper I have ever had! I had the blackened salmon the next time and it was awesome. We ate at the steak house 2 nights and can't rave about the ribeye but the next time I had the filet and it was great. All meals are served with fresh vegies and don't forget to order the delicious desert. We ate at the Thai restaurant and I didn't know what I was ordering but loved it. We didn't go here for the food but loved it. bonus! We have been to many all inclusives, Dominican, Pourta Vallarta, Playa Del Carman, and got married 7 years ago in Cancun. We were very happy with Golden parnassus. We met quite a few people who said this was their 7th or 9th time back there. The staff here are all exceptional as many people have said in their reviews. This isn't a big party place but you will have fun. This is also a great location. Covid - We have both been vaccinated because we work in the medical field in the US. Most people did wear masks in doors ever though there is always a nice breeze blowing through the place. We wouldn't get on the elevator if someone didn't have a mask on. How rude and selfish. We got our covid tests at the hotel before we left for $20 and got our results back quickly. They were very professional administering the test. We got the shuttle through Expedia for $55 round trip and that was our only mistake. We had to wait upon our arrival at the airport for over 2 hours for our shuttle. (87 degrees) They seemed very confused or whatever. We had to wait until they filled it up with 4 other couples and we were the last ones off. Upon checking out they wanted us to pick us up over an hour before we figured we had to leave. We got a taxi for $30 and that is the way we will go in the future. He took my wife and I directly to the airport and was very courteous. We needed a vacation with a margarita and our feet in the sand. Accomplished!
