Everything was perfect!

Positive :

The cleanliness of the whole site and very good food. Michèle restaurant has been faultless. The staff are all very nice.

Negative :

More chairs, so that we have no need to get up at 6:30 in the morning to reserve.

We had a great week, lots of swimming in the beautiful waves of 2 to 4 feet all week. Very nice weather.

Positive :

The hotel is well located. Services are quite comprehensive. Waterslides very appreciated by all. Good food and plenty of choice. Very friendly staff. Beautiful beach. TMR agents are friendly, very dedicated and fully bilingual.

Negative :

Expenses ATM $ $ $. If we lose the plastic strap of the hotel, bathing is U.S. $ 100. It is better to have pesos because they always round their benefits. Very slow elevator, stay and take the first steps. To get a good spot on the beach it will be put towels on the chairs before 7:30 in the morning.

Very nice hotel with happy staff serve us. They are not waiting for the tip to serve us well.

Positive :

Great for kids, lots of organized activities, in addition to water slides really great! The food is very good.

Negative :

Not much vegetation given the very limited field. The waves are very large, not recommended with very young children.

We spent a wonderful week at the Great Parnassus, everything was perfect!

Positive :

The hotel, public toilets, public areas are clean. The food is excellent.

Negative :

The only thing that is unique to this hotel is to cohabit an adults and restaurants for adults with a very family party as part of the water park. Adults who are not in a group or do not want to keep their children can not benefit from these restaurants and places reserved. It's a shame.

I like to see many different dendroit but this hotel I would return. The Sunwing rep was excellent it is a French remains in Cancun for 17 years.

Positive :

Very nice hotel on the edge of the Caribbean Sea, plus access to another hotel nearby Parnasus a Km, local bus transportation easy to get around town, MORE excursion available (visit Mayan ruins, boat rentals, snokel in Sea etc.). Restaurant reservation, pool and spa for adult has front and three rear famillial pool, bar and disco and all the food is excellent.

Negative :

Strong wave always red or yellow bird and many close family pools
