    and I got it because we had fallen in love with going to the Golden Crown Paradise Spa in Cancun for years. Now known as the Golden Parnassus.

    Thanks for the info about the bus stop. Sounds like I'll be missing some more bus stops on the way back lol. I'll find my way or just pay for taxi drop me at the door.

    Thanks for the honest review! I have read some horrible reviews but I guess that is from people that were expecting a 5 star. It was a great price for the week we are going so I hope we just relax party and have a good time! I have had some great reviews as well so I am looking foward to going! First time in Cancun! We are going Feb 17-25!

    In addition to a week of mayhem when I head to Cancun from 3/13-3/20, also trying to offset the marathon drinking with some semblance of a workout. Will often run on the beach, but how is the gym area at the Golden?

    Our opinion is you probably won't be disappointed...the Golden Parnassus as some great customer loyalty...we know some people who have been there 20+ times....you can also read more GP reviews on Tripadvisor.com.

    Probably doesn't matter much as long as it's sunny and warm. As for us, I think we might be looking at October and we might head south back toward Playa again (haven't been there for a few years)....

    Ken & Robin...you may also want to check the Cancun Forum on tripadvisor.com for folks who'll be at the Golden Parnassus next week. That's where we "pre-connected" with several couples before we went.

    Speaking of the Golden Parnassus, I just read on Trip Advisor that the Golden Parnassus will be closed in September for renovations....

    Is there boards on trip advisor? I looked at some reviews, but we haven't seen where people are posting when they are going???? To bad they don't come over to CC!

    Gp is not a 5 star resort more like a 3 star but the service is great and the food is ok. Not a whole lot of topless wome near the pool most hang near the beach. Kinda funny because the near by resorts will have people walking by all day checking us out. I will say this the beach and water at gp is amazing compared to TTR, I still wouldn't give up what TTR has for gp .
