Extremely unforgiving but an amazing course. Every hole is a separate golf adventure. You have to play like the PGA play when they are there. If you spray your drives you will have a long day. $200.00 but worth the cost. The food in the restaurant above the 18th green is great for lunch after you are done>

Talk about fancy…don't go if you suck at golf like I do. Realllly expensive, ($70 dollar club rentals) but beautiful course.

Beautiful views, challenging course, but not worth the price they ask. There are other similar or nicer courses in the area with better service. The ride from our resort was part of the package but we had to call to remind them when they didnt show. No time to browse in the Pro Shop but it did look very nice... More

Definitely the best course I played in the Playa DeCarmen area. Great layout, great condition. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to play in this area! Play after 1 and save about 50% on green fees.

Overall Mayacoba is one of those top tier courses that you should play if you get the chance. The course itself is fantastic, it is typical Greg Norman, in that it a very unforgiving course, immaculately maintained, hazards on almost ever hole, with a ton of sand, water, and drama at every turn, which I enjoy. There is a cenote... More

Title says it all!! This course is soooo nice. Just amazing. Super well maintained. Literally dozens of people working on it all the time. Great greens, fairways, and bunkers. Staff was adequate but nothing special. Being connected to three luxury resorts, you would expect a little more.

I am a travel agent and booked a group with Lizette to golf. I made it very clear to Lizette which hotel my group was staying via phone calls and emails. Lizette sent the bus to the wrong hotel and my clients had to take taxi's to the golf course at their own expense. The group barely made it in... More

Course was excellent, the staff at check in were not very nice or helpful and was to worried about groups that they were very organized with individual couples tee times, however the starts seemed better. This is a great course, not for the novice golfer though!

This place is definitely worth the money. If you are looking for the best course on the Yucatán and insula this is probably it. Make sure that you do book the teatime in advance as it will save you some money. I highly recommend playing from the white tees as the yardage can significantly increase as it is very windy....

My husband played at Mayakoba today while I drove the cart. All I can say is what a waste of part of our vacation! He had to change clubs 3 times because they kept giving him some with regular shafts and others with stiff shafts. The clubs themselves were VERY worn out, the driver nearly unusable. Some of the staff... More
