    Well I'm heading out in two weeks with my girlfriend (going to pop the question before we leave though). Does anyone have the email address for the GP? I would love to upgrade as plans have changed and something a little nicer would be great. Also does anyone know what occupancies has been like recently? Will we have the place to ourselves or have some friends to party with?

    thanks everyone.

    Hey dbsb? what are the dates u are going to be there?
    Occupancy has been very low, like 20 to 30% but the last count I had they said things were picking up fast. I hope so. I like to meet lots of new people.

    Sorry i guess I dropped the ball on that post. We will be there the 15-22nd. We are a 25 year old and a 21 year old couple.

    I agree that the people you meet on vacation often makes or breaks the whole deal. We are looking for a night or two craziness and can always be coerced into more fun but the idea so far is to relax but have the option to party.
    anything else i should know about the place that hasn't been stated several times in the thread?
    She's happy it's topless and some of the jacuzzi claims in this thread are interesting but I don't know what you've seen first hand.

    Anyways take care and hopefully I'll be able to catch you out there and get the lay of the land from you.

    Well by the time we get there u will have scoped out the place. The Tiki bar is the place to hang out on the property. Jose , Carlos and Fonzie are the best. Take long pants, collard shirt and one pare of shoes (not sandles) if u like to eat well. Shangri la is the best 7 or 8 course meals. Great food. We always take long pants for that only. Wear them while we eat and then go change into shorts or bathing suit after but the food is worth the change. If u find something u like on the menu and want more just ask. My friend Roger loves the Creme Brulee and he orders two or three a night. lol
    Have fun. See u on the 19th.
    PS. Post a pic if u want so I will know who u are.

    The main thing u have to know about the Golden Parnassus is that it is a mix of young and old people but we are all there to have a good time. I have met some fun young and old people there. Some we still keep in touch with. Just let urself go and enjoy.

    If anyone has been there recently I was wondering if they still had various exercise classes in the morning? I saw somewhere they had things like spinning and yoga in the morning. But I'm not sure if that still exists.

    Thanks.

    In February they had all the exercise classes. The tiki bar is the place as there is not much not life at the resort after the early evening. We have been there three times and only been to one show. It is hard to leave the tiki bar.
    I would check under Trip Advisor for others that are going.

    The hot tub (luke warm tub) is fun and I have seen everything from a jolly good time to just chatting.

    You will love the serivce and the variety of different ages that are there. Please post a short note upon your return. Send me a PM and I can provide a few hot tub pictures, for your eyes only.

    I have been to a few of the shows, some are fun some are dumb. Most of the time I should have stayed at the tiki bar also. Sometimes the Beer garden is fun but not always, like vaction said depends on the time of the day. Late mornings and early afternoons are mostly for sunning and drinking of course. lol
    My friend Roger loves to play the tequlia volleyball. lt can get crazy.

    We've been there a half dozen times. The shows are all pretty weak, and we never go anymore. Great place to meet people. You will have a blast. Go to the bars with the entertainment staff.

    Great advice and will do! Sorry to ask so many questions but I'm sure others will read this as well and have their questions answered.

    Can you snorkel at the beach there?

    No, i've never seen anyone snorkel there. The wave action is pretty fierce usually. The golden used to have the best stretch of beach of anyone in Cancun. Sadly, the beach has eroded sooooo much since 2005. It comes and goes now, but there is hardly even room for beach volleyball, in fact there wasn't in december. We love beach volleyball, so we would go down to the Great Parnassus, the Golden's sister hotel, and play beach volleyball there. Snorkeling is better down by club med, down on the end of the seven. You can swim in the ocean, but the waves are usually rough, but we love the waves!

    You can book a snorkel trip though. We are taking diving lessons right now actually, and we are going to Playa in Oct. to dive there and in Cozumel. Then in december we are back at the Golden for a week.
