e stayed for 2 weeks: 5.2 - 19.2.11. These are our informed observations: The Great Parnassus is a good, solid, better than average AI hotel representing good value for money! (Many Air Pilots & Cabin Crew stayed here during our 2 week stay). The hotel is large & designed on a cruise liner. It easily accomodated over 1100 guests without...

Good value, but the food was bad. Really bad. Poor quality food and not prepared well. We found a few things at the buffet that we liked so we ate there for most of the trip. The "Japanese" restaurant had a good tempura. The service was poor and always wanting tips. Great beach, really sandy and beautiful but a very...

From the minute we walked into the hotel it was perfect service , they attended to all our needs and the food and drinks were superb. Classy and elegant but also fun and lots of activities for the kids. Also the bartender in the poalas sports bar "mike" was excellent and made all my drinks to perfection.
