Awesome course!

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... read 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

Recently played this course while on holiday at the grand Bahia coba now I know it says golf is free and it is a bit of a con as you have to pay for hire of buggies but this course is worth it really challenging course because of heat but not the hardest of courses to play but some great... 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

I booked my husband for a round of golf at the end of may at this course through the Guest Services at our Grand Palladium hotel. The cost should have been $138 US but he was only charged $105 when he got there. He's not complaining. He said he lost 7 golf balls on the course when he usually loses... More

I played here twice during a recent visit to Tulum and really enjoyed it. It's a challenging course alright (didn't break 100 either time off a 18 handicap) but the scenery is amazing and I really enjoyed it - I'd recommend to take a camera. The course was in great condition and couldn't be faulted Carts I played on the... More

This is my second time golfing the Riviera Maya Golf Club. The golf is superb. The grounds are beautiful. The service on the course is excellent! We have free transportation within the Bahia complex to the course. We played every day! The cart fee went up this year to $80 US per person. The front desk staff are not very... More

They charge $45 for a cart rider on the short par 3 course which takes about 90 minutes. Same price as the full course. One to be avoided
