Course is by Robert Trent Jones- challenging layout and can consume golf balls but enjoyable and in great shape. That said, staff was indifferent at best and most fo the attention seems to be about selling real estate (you don't get pitched though). We were coming from Playa del carmen about 45 minutes away so we did not get a... More

Great Course and deserves its accolades and the PGA Tour stop. The holes are all interesting and those along the canals and the ocean are very special - and it's challenging for both hackers and single digit handicapers alike. When in the Cancun area it is definitely worth finding the time to play one of the best courses in the... More

I stayed at the Sa'an Kian Hotel which is opposite the course. I brought my own clubs with me on holiday which saved me a lot of money on fees . If you're part of the hotels there's no green fees BUT you have to rent a cart which clearly makes up for that ($100 in the morning and $60... More

Booked 3 4-balls during our holiday last year. The course is beautiful and staff were very helpful. Hired clubs were adequate and buggies, (included in golf cost) were fine. There were beers brought to the golfers regularly,

The golf course is very plush and beautifully manicured. We stayed at Grand Bahia Coba and received a shuttle to and from the course. The first day we played it was wonderful. The humidity was 100% and it was HOT! Thankfully the drink cart came every four holes. We loaded up on ice, water and Gatorade (for a fee). The... More

The staff at the course was amazing! They were accommodating and friendly. The beer cart guy came around often and we were never left with empty or hot drinks. Beware of the animals! They will steal food out of your cart and run with it! Course is beautiful! It has a lot of water, which I am not used to... More

Played this course June 2015, paid $160 full fare which I have no issue with considering the condition of the course. Personnel sufficient but not overly helpful. Good carts with nice GPS, which is very helpful. The conditions of the course are excellent, and its a pleasure to hit off such plush fairways! Greens were true but slightly slow, but... More
