at 630 am, a lot of coursework is being completed. I don't suggest playing this early. Greens are fast, somewhat consistent. When they put down new holes and mark them, they should press green around the hole, greenskeeper is pulling them out fast to make holes on a slight increase / hill.

Golf at the Lakes course is one of the more anticipated events we have every May (and sometimes November/December) when we come to the Barcelo Palace as it has been for nearly 20 years. I meet up with my old friends from Argentina and Canada and we play every other day for three weeks (usually 12-13 rounds). As I have... More

The Lakes Barcelo Golf Course is awesome !! Enjoyed playing it 4 times. Must keep your ball on the fairway or the many bunkers can become a challenge. Also, anything off the side of the fairways disappears under lush green vegetation. Any stray shots into the jungle are gone. Bring lots of balls, as you will need them. Clubhouse is... More

Barceló Lakes Golf Course is relatively short but very challenging due to the water and sand traps throughout the course. When the generally constant strong breezes, the holes become very challenging. Course is in very good condition. Greens, well groomed, but very difficult to read. Golf cart fees are pricey.

Course in great shape, challenging for all levels of play perhaps with the exception of a scratch player. A little busy but no problem getting around in a foursome in 4 hours and 15 minutes.

Green fees are included (one per day per person) at the on-site golf course. You can call for a personal shuttle to the course when you are ready to play. Tee times are needed as the course is somewhat busy. The course is very well kept with good greens and fairways. They charge for golf carts, but if you stay... More

Great course, convenient to the resort. Excellent putt, chip and range facilities. Bar/restaurant decor are exceptional for an AI resort. Staff were good as well. Course itself is well maintained, but really challenging, I've played here 4 times and never come close to my handicap. Enjoyed every round though.

Liked the tasty freshly prepared food, pub fare and atmosphere. Staff a bit snobby we felt, service so and so.
