    The staff and the service we received was superb! The hotel was clean and Covid protocals were in place. We felt extremely safe. The food was great and so were the drinks. Bartenders were spectacular. We loved the location of the resort and the pool being right next to the beach! We met many guests that visit this resort year after year. We will be back. We are hoping to make Golden Parnassus a yearly trip

    Golden Parnassus is a small hotel located on beautiful maintained beach. The pool is large but it's not heated. We were there in January and the pool was freezing. The only activities around the pool was water volleyball and water exercise, which no one wanted to par take in. Everyday, the activities staff would bring out the volleyball net and try to get people to join. Most of the time they only got 2 or 3 people to participate. They should have come up with some other activity.

    Cannot beat the staff at The Golden. Smaller resort with a great beach and pool, and the staff go above and beyond to make sure your stay is fantastic. Santiago with room service makes your morning, Martin and Elisio make you laugh all day at the pool. Martin and Servali are always there to help you at check in and out.

    We were very pleased with this resort! It was small, which we like. The staff was so nice and always helpful. The food at all the restaurants were great! I have never seen so many staff members cleaning all the time as I did here, which we really liked seeing during Covid pandemic. Pool area was great. Spa services were awesome. We honestly don't have any complaint other than there was no fridge in the room. However, 24 hr room service was available. We will definitely recommend and stay at again!

    Overall, I was very happy with our weekend here and would definitely recommend it. We were only here from Thursday-Sunday so we simply wanted to relax and enjoy the weather. My experience was a bit unique as I went there with a broken ankle/foot and really could not partake in any activities. Food: I was definitely impressed with the food. I have stayed at many all inclusive resorts and this was some of the best food I have ever had. So much seafood, which I loved! Everything was very fresh and most items seemed to be made from scratch. The only food that I wasn't super impressed with was the Japanese restaurant, but we could have just hit a bad night as other guests raved about this restaurant. I also loved the 24hr room service. Drinks: So good! They make tasty drinks which are definitely strong! I also loved that they always had champagne. Staff: Amazing! They were so attentive and willing to help me whenever needed. A big shout out to Jose who made sure to check in with me if I needed anything every time he saw me. Fonzy was also really great! He made sure and gave my mom special attention since she was always getting me stuff - very much appreciated. Carmen and Yessica were also fantastic. They were so friendly and always kept us with a drink in hand. Santiago was also amazing every time he brought us room service. Honestly, all the wait staff were fantastic! However, you will see below the front desk staff definitely left me unimpressed as we had to ask for special accommodations several times before they would help us out. Accommodations: I was unable to walk while I was here so my experience is definitely unique. When we first arrived I was very unhappy with the service. When we got to the resort there were steps that I couldn't climb and was told to use the ramp. The staff simply pointed to the ramp for me to go up and offered no help. The ramp was super steep and wet as it had just rained. I was terrified going up it. When checking into the hotel they gave us a room on the third floor, which wasn't ideal not being able to walk. Once we got to our room it was very outdated and extremely loud. Everything echoed from the lobby area directly into our room making it impossible to sleep. The room was also not handicapped friendly and I could not get into the shower. After continually asking the front desk about room options we were finally upgraded to a jacuzzi suite free of charge. I thankfully was able to get into the jacuzzi. The room upgrade was a life saver! I could lay on our patio and just enjoy the view without having to try and get up and down their ramps which are very steep. They even brought me a lounge chair for our patio so I didn't have to leave the room - we did have to ask for this several times though. If you do stay here, I would advise against staying in any room above the lobby - very noisy! Activities: I can't speak to this very much as I was unable to get around while I was there, but in general it didn't seem like there was much to do except eat, drink, and relax. Pools: They had one pool and a hot tub - again I can't say much about this as I wasn't able to go into the water. Location: Great! It's only about 20 minutes from the airport and you are right ocean. Overall - Awesome resort for a weekend getaway to relax :)
