Golf course was in good condition however Prices were a bit steep . Iv noticed that the caddie subject is continuously mentioned, I think by making caddies compulsory there should be a set tipping fee (ie good caddie 10 £ tip for one and if not then less). From my experience I had 3 different caddies. Chichi was brilliant and... More

The course was very enjoyable. Take plenty of water. Caddies were really friendly. Always use a buggy.

This is a very nice course to play, open with few hazards. I think it’s over priced and the caddies I thought were good at their jobs but tend to hit you up every time with hard knock stories over your last few holes for bigger tips.

Lovely course, beautifully maintained, but a tad pricey and the caddies you're forced to pay for are a hindrance rather than a help.

we didn't actually play golf there. Instead we played tennis on the clay courts (3) on the edge of the property and rode bicycles around the area.

Nice golf course, however rates are expensive and caddies expect more than they are worth. On my first visit, I was criticized by the caddie, little Leo, after he was given a substantial tip, never used him again!!!!

So I go there and I'm looking through the pro shop and the girl behind the counter falls asleep. Then I go and rent clubs and she grunts they are in the back room. I have to go myself and try to put a set together. The driver I picked broke on my second hole becuase I never noticed it... More

Played golf at Playa Dorada Golf Club over the weekend. It is a nice course with some greens next to the beach/ocean. Some great views. Must purchase green fees, rent cart and pay mandatory caddie fee. If you have your own clubs rate is of course reduced. Listen to the advice of the caddie when it comes to putting. On... More

We played twice on our vacation, knowing full well that the greens fees were expensive and a $15 caddie fee is required. We expected to tip the caddie, and thought we tipped well enough for a 3.5 hour round ($40 for the foursome). But the caddie expressed his disappointment, because he had to 'correct lots of mistakes we were making'.... More
