We recently played the Riviera Maya golf course after staying at the Grand Hahia Principe Tulum hotel across the road. Free green fees (for hotel guests) still means $65 for buggy hire and $45 for club hire so no such thing as "free" Hire clubs were Callaways and of a good standard. Fantastic looking course, especially the back 9 with... More

I liked most how well maintained is the golf course. Fairways, green, all. Very, Very challenging. Don't you dar to start from Blue or Black. If you want to enjoy, go from whites Take a lot of balls with you or you will have to buy a lot there (cheapest, used balls at 10$, 10 balls)

it was not as difficult as some people have reviewed, we've played other courses in Caribbean just like this, same conditions and difficulty. the second half of the 18 holes is prettier than the first 9, there are more water features, I think 14 and 15 were the prettiest if I can remember rightly. if your golf ball goes into...

I have been on some of the best Golf Courses in the US. With that said, this golf course is in the top 10 golf courses I have played. The course was in great condition and very beautiful In December when we played it. If you stay at the Sian Kaan, the food inside is free. We ordered sandwiches before... More

I have had the pleasure of returning to this course for the past 4 years and at various times in the year. the staff especially Alfredo know how to look after you. If you stay at the Bahia Principe you pay the value of the cart which is still about the price of a round of golf and cart at... More

When you stay at Sian Kaan you do not pay green fees but still have to rent the cart as there is no walking. They also rented clubs as... More

Great course but it is difficult. Wonderful condition. You will need to buy the bags of used balls as you are not provided with any. I was wrongly told they were provided.
