    We are planning a trip to Cancun the last week of May. We have looked at reviews and read posts here on Cancuncare. We have pretty much narrowed it down to Grand Oasis Viva or Golden Parnassus. We would very much appreciate some replies from people who have been to one place or the other or both with the reason you are suggesting GOV or GP. We are a late 40's couple, not swingers but seeking an adult atmosphere.

    Just curious - why are you not also considering Temptation?

    TTR

    Temptation seemed a little wild for us but we could be convinced otherwise.

    depends on how far you can let loose, Temptation is by far the most exciting resort full of people that are open minded that dont mind some nudity and a total party place, it is not a swinger resort if you are worried about that. There are swingers there but will not bite you unless you Ask. its like a large frat party for the middle age. GOV resort is alot less partying, more relaxed, then GP IS way below both what we call Boring. A typical resort.

    Actually Temptation also has a quiet pool for those who don't want to party hard during the day as well. I've personally seen it once to verify its existence!

    But all things considered I've heard nice things about the Golden Parnassus and Grand Oasis Viva as well.

    Only knock I've really heard on GP is that bumping to the sister family resort happens more often that other places I've heard of and GOV is still creating their own identity.

    Wherever you decide to go have a fun time!

    Check our trip report for gov ,we were there in feb and had a fantastic time,very clean and updated resort unlike others we have been to.If you want adult fun but at an adult pace gov is the spot,Temptation is fun but been there three times and we were seeing no improvements to facilities,sorry but its getting tired and they are unwilling to listen to recommendations,don't get me wrong we always had fun their but we enjoyed the gov better simply because they tried to accommodate you and it was much cleaner and classier and a way better beach

    We'd suggest GOV. We haven't been there yet........but have close friends that have. If you want to act like a college kid on Spring Break.........go to TTR! If you want a nicer resort.........with more of a chill atmosphere......try GOV. We're doing TTR for 2 sleeps.......GOV for 5 sleeps......and Desire Pearl for 3.......all in mid-late July!

    We witnessed plenty of college kids hitting GOV early March. For some reason, unexplainable, they were more respectful than the kids that we have witnessed at TTR. We have no regrets going to GOV, was a MUCH CLASSIER and more beautiful beach than TTR. Easy decision for us in the comparison of the two resorts.
