    Hi folks, new to the forum. highly considering booking golden parnassus after reading reviews and pics. A couple of questions if i may?

    What is the difference between ocean view club room and the golden ocean view club room? We would love to have a top floor room for view. Also does the golden club view have the jacuzzi on the balcony? Just confused as the difference between the 2 room types and I can't seem to find pictures online for a golden club view room.

    Can you pay extra for when checking in for high end alcohol instead of local brands...absolut...grey goose...patron...more expensive wines? or are they already included?

    are you allowed to eat, drink, enjoy pools at the Great Parnassus at no additional charge?

    How many pools are there after the recent remodel? is there quiet time during the day around the pool?

    Are there theme nights where you can dress up or in costume?


    any advice from seasoned patrons on must have's/do's when booking golden parnassus?


    thank you very much in ADVANCE.

    The Ocean View Club rooms also have a refrigerator and King Beds - as 808 mentioned they are on the 6th floor.....so, if you want to be "high up" thats where to stay - they are beautiful rooms and the view CANNOT be beat !! we always book the Club room now..... and 808 is correct as far as tipping - not only do they absolutely deserve it, they make so little......and always remember you - they treat you like family, thats our favorite part about this resort.....we walk in year after year and everyone remembers you - its our home away from home - you will love it !!

    no worries....once you get there.....look for Arminda and ask her if theres any golden room available and if there is, you would like to Upgrade! (tell her you know Mike from chicago) she'll know!

    OK. Now I`ll give you the real skinnies on the differences in the Club rooms and Golden club rooms. I am heading down in June for my 31st time in 6 years, so I know a little bit about the hotel!!!

    Club rooms are only on the 6th floor.........both ocean view and lagoon view. They have a jaccuzzi, stocked mini bar, champagne and fruit on arrival, availability to take the Cancun Queen lagoon lunch cruise (Mondays only) and also the availibility to have a gourmet dinner served in your room from the Shangri La restaurant. The cruise and the dinner need to be reserved 24 hours in advance with the concierge.
    The Golden club rooms are all ocean view, on floors 1-5, North end of the resort, 5 on each floor. Have all the same amenities of the Club rooms but are larger, with a much larger balcony.
    Any other ???s on the GP, just fire away!!

    Tip everyone and often! even if its only a couple bucks. They don't make much and trust me, when you start tipping, the excellent service gets even better! (as if that we possible to begin with!)

    I think the food is amazing!! My fav is Shangri La, Then sumo, pier 12, and lastly old barn.

    I eat at paradise buffet every day for breakfast and lunch! the food there is great and the options seem endless.

    I always go topless..... sometimes there are none lying topless until one top comes off... then usually at least 3-6 more come off.... and so on and so forth.

    I advice AGAINST the jungle tour. I paid 65 bucks to go on a two seater boat through a bunch of weeds and small hanging trees. I didn't snorkel(wouldn't even WANT to as it's in the lagoon) and got a bottle of water. Whoop dee doo! Worst waste of money!

    The booze cruise: which do you refer to? The drinking tour that goes to a few clubs.... or a catamaran filled up to 55 people that sets out to isla mujeres, cruising and boozing?

    The first..... well..... i dont really recommend it. I recommend going with the hotel to ONE club. You always get VIP and usually a nice convenient area great to party in. I had a BLAST at Mandala with the hotel, even though Mandala is small and not a major major club, we still had a great time. I wouldn't pass up the show at CoCoBongo. Definitely do that WITH the hotel to get a better area. I would also recommend doing The City at least once.

    I've been to basic out near the water(farther away from everything else)..... it was a crazy wild time for sure, but not my favorite.

    I'm cheap.... and I like cheap thrills. I stick to Terrasta, Slices, or the other open air bars that have free entry. Keep in mind the wrist bands usually start $18+ USD. Usually around $30-$35.


    As for as Cancuncare's BOOZE/Boobs Cruise: If you are truly comfortable in an "Adult" environment (I.e. Topless ladies, plenty of alcohol flowing, dancing, relaxing, sun, and body shots) then the cruise would be perfect for you. Steve, the site owner, advertises these cruises usually a month in advance. You can find them under the Temptations forum with their date. Spring break time there is usually one a week but they slow down during the off season. They include snorkeling, all you can drink on board, lunch at a yacht club, some shopping time at isla mujeres, and pretty much all day on the gorgeous waters! :D

    Other companies offer a similar excursion.... but i can assure you they are no where near as fun as Cancuncares! :D



    any other questions let me know. :D
