This was our second stay at the resort, and it was even better than the first! The food has actually improved in the last 2 years, which is pretty amazing for Mexico. My son is 13 years old and absolutely loves every minute of the activities. It is hard to get him away from the resort. The recreation staff are...

We just returned from the Great Parnassus after staying there from March 11-18 with my wife and two teenage children, 13 and 16. We have travelled to Cancun at least 5 times and when comparing it to other resorts that we have stayed at, this takes the top. Staff was friendly for the most part, check in was quick and...

The rooms were plenty big enough with two king size beds, a sofa and a table and chairs. The bathroom was a little dated but spacious all the same with ample wardrobe space. The cleanliness was second...

We went to Great Parnassus from March 4 to March 11. Our first impression was that this place was amazing. Big, clean. We were upgraded to a suite with king size bed, walk in closet, and a shower big enough for 6 people. The first night we were there, the room flooded after our shower, because the drain had come...
