My wife & I play this course every time that we visit Nuevo Vallarta. We've been playing this course since 2007. You are required to have a caddie that you have to pay for. If you're an experienced golfer, ask for a junior caddie as it will be less expensive. You can store your clubs at the course if you're... More

Good track. I give the course management five stars for keeping such a fast pace of play! Pro shop staff speaks VERY poor English. Also, bring your visa and cash. No American Express or ATM. Must have cash for your caddie.

It was very hot and humid the day they golfed. Golf was quite expensive, and a caddy and cart were mandatory, adding to the expense.

Resort is huge with the Nicklaus Design course serving it all. This is not as big an issue you might suspect however. A Norman Design course is nearing completion with addition courses planned. The Mayan properties offer some of the world's biggest and best water features on site thus not everyone is here to play golf. You only have to... More

Enjoyed playing 18 holes at this course. Moderately challenging course; just the right blend of bunkers; water and yardage.

Mayan Palace is a great resort course (Jack Nicklaus design), greens were in great shape and caddies were helpful. Mayan Village is a huge resort, You drive into a central staging area and then golf carts take you to the various venues. Allow sufficient time from arrival until you golf cart to the course. Driving range is not near the... More

The course is always busy as previously stated. That is just a fact since golf was oversold with the time shares, however the caddies are great, the course is always in great shape considering they put anywhere from 150-200 players through a day in the busy season. Lots of course changes year to year when they need to adapt to... More

Nice lay out with the old and the new holes providing lots of variety and not to much difficulty. very good pro shop hospitality and generally excellent caddies. The golf course manager is always very friendly and accommodating. the course will be over played in the winter months as the new course across the river is not yet ready for... More

Not a bad course. Traversing it was interrupted by hotel construction. Fairly open track and it is always busy due to the free rounds they offer people for attending timeshare presentations. Be prepared to play with hackers.
