We decided to stay at this resort after a rather difficult 2010 (New Year's eve arrival). Upon arrival, it was very clear that this was not going to be a perfect 5-star stay. Service at front desk was poor. The staff give you the impression that you don't really matter (very cold). Nor did they seem terribly knowledgeable about their...

We stayed here last yr for spring break, and as we are planning our coming up spring break trip; I feel the need to warn other families of this place. It is all inclusive, so be prepared for everything to be cheap. Rooms: very lousy linen, bath towels, the rooms are spacious BUT it really doesn't matter bc the beds...

You can't write a review about this resort without first addressing the staff. They are all hard working and friendly. The wait staff bent over backwards for all of the guests and assisted them with whatever they needed. Jerry at the buffet is one of the best waiters I've ever encountered at an All-Inclusive. The entertainment staff was extremely friendly...

My husband and myself, and two of our boys - aged 21 and 25 - checked into and out of this hotel in less than 18 hours. It is sub-grade - should be listed as a 3 star at most - the rooms are old, run down and dated - bedding is of the poorest quality, towels scratch your body,...

I have been to Cancun before and stayed at the beginning of hotel zone (takes longer to get to and from downtown), so I was looking for something a little...

We just got back from a 5 day stay here. The restaurants were just okay. The food was never hot. The only hot meal was the at the oriental kiosk in the food court because the lady made my dish in a wok for me. That was the best meal I had. While we were dining at the French restaurant...

We arrived at 12 noon to the Great Parnassus and our rooms were not ready yet but that was ok since we were so early. We put our swimsuits on and headed to the beach until 3pm. The bell staff did a good job watching our luggage. We ate lunch at the food court - YUK don't recommend the food...
