The worst place i have ever stayed for the money spent.. We went with a family of 11 and only the kids enjoyed it (they don't know better). They allowed young kids, 15-20 year olds, drink uncontrollably, the entertainment staff actually poured the alcohol in there mouths. The Spa and the hotel are NOT connected so if you go to...

I had my wedding here on Jan 29, 2011 and let me tell you I was so stressed because of lack of reviews and information on this resort.

After reading TA review before we booked, I think we pretty much got what we expected, especially given the price we paid. It was the second trip to Cancun for my husband and I, and I'm sure we'll be back again. We enjoyed our time at this hotel, but would perhaps stay somewhere else, just to experience something different next...

Our family of four with two kids ages 7 & 9 stayed here the first week in July and had a wonderful time! We read all of the reviews before coming so we felt we knew what to expect taking into account both the positive and negative comments. We were thrilled to learn that the positives far outweigh any negatives!...

I had many reservations about staying here after reading so many negative reviews. We stayed at the Great Parnassus from July 1 to July 8. Overall, we had a great vacation. My husband and kids, aged 16, 13 and 10 especially enjoyed the food at the poolside grill. Many people said they like Big Ben and Portofino, however, these were...

My family and I stayed at the Great Parnassus (on the recommendation of our travel agent) from July 3rd through July 7th. To start, a few of the reviews we had read were actually right on the money. For instance, the majority of the hotel including the lobby, elevators - basically anywhere other than your room does not have A/C....
