We just returned from an 8 day Spring Break family vacation. Location is perfect, close to the airport (15 minutes) & on the best beach in Cancun! The food is good and plentiful. Lots of options and something for everyone. The food was warm and the drinks are cold, the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious...

I liked this place. I got the package through Expedia. The hotel is located on the beach. Several options for dining. Every staff spoke English, broken, but were able to answer all my questions. Very friendly. The family room was very clean. Fresh towels and face cloths each day, no hand towels. The beach has a lifeguard and a security...

Good: beach is great (same goes for most hotels in the area), good looks of the hotel architecture, waiters and help desk staff. Bad: room finish are poor as well as maintenance, details everywhere you look, paint, floor tiles, bath, jacuzzi, it looks as if the exceeded budget as the construction when on and they had to cut on materials...

A budget friendly family resort with all amenities located closely together. If I were coming without young children, I would likely try a different location; but this resort really is perfect for our young family. The staff their are especially fantastic. We received excellent service from Wilberto, Oscar, and Louis in the buffet area.

Myself, my mom and my friend went on vacation for my 50th Birthday. We had a wonder time and want to do this again. We enjoyed having families around us during our vacation. However, if we wanted to be with adults only the resort has adult only areas available. The overall atmosphere of the resort is comfortable, clean, relaxing and...

It was only me & my mom as a mother daughter trip and we thought we would get overwhelmed with all the kids and babies. However, the resort is huge and it's easy to find your own path. The food is AMAZING!!! Make sure you try Big Ben restaurant- we loved it so much we went twice. Even the buffet...

I usually read many reviews prior to choosing a resort so I feel I it is fair to leave my opinion for others to consider. Great Parnassus is a solid 3.5 star family resort. The strongest points are: 1. The location of the resort. Close proximity to the airport. 2.Wonderful beach ( lots of waves yet you can still get...

Stayed a week at this resort with my husband and two kids (ages 3 and 5). Our hotel room was roomy with a Jacuzzi inside. We also had a standup shower which had a lot of jets but water leaked out of the jets and not spraying out like it should. The sink clogs up fast when running. Our balcony...
