One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Situated between the lagoon and the beach, the main building and the guest houses around are really beautiful. Many tropical birds and other animals living around, a very nice place for yoga and meditation. I would spend my life there!

from the high end lessons by the professional staff, to the beautiful course, and excellent golf shop, this is definitely a great place for people who enjoy golf.

Played front 9 in nearly 21/2 hrs which wasn't too bad. However, when we got to #11 there were 4 groups on that 1 hole and a 5th group was coming off #10 green. Looked like the back would be playing at least 31/2 hrs so we picked up and returned to the clubhouse. The beverage cart driver was there... More

Waaaay to overpriced. We experienced buyers remorse. While the grounds are great, paying close to $300 per person (including clubs) was not worth it, in my opinion.. Would not go again on price alone.

Perfectly groomed course with the most friendly staff. A must play in the Mayan Riveria!! My wife and I had the entire course to ourselves, It was our private club for the day.

Course was well maintained. Nice fairways, greens and tee boxes. Read a lot of comments about losing a lot of golf balls. Play the right set of tees and you will be okay. the course is not too tough, but you can get into trouble pretty quick if you don't keep your ball in the wide fairway, like I did... More

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
