“Fair and Beautiful course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Beautiful well layed out course. Greens are fast and all were in excellent condition when we played at the end on Nov. '12. Women get a good advantage which is needed as some 4 pars are close to 500 yrs.

“Great Golf Vacation!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with this resort and the adjacent Cana Bay golf course. We are a group of 12 that for the past 17 years have gone away on a golf trip. This is the first time that the group has gone away to an all-inclusive and judging by our experience, it won’t be the last.

Our biggest concern on this trip was the golf course. On previous golf trips we were accustomed to playing different golf courses every day. Since we opted for the unlimited golf package we played the Cana Bay golf course for six straight days. What a great golf course! Cana Bay is a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course and it does not disappoint. It is a good challenge for golfers of any level and it was in great shape. The fairways were pristine and the greens were undulating and rolled fast. Some very interesting holes including #18 which is a great finishing hole. The pro shop staff was very pleasant and accommodating and the beverage cart was always around for that cold beverage. The other big bonus for our group is that after the round they stored our clubs for us there until the next day. They have a bar out back overlooking #18 for that 19th hole beverage. As a side note, the course recently held a PGA Latin America tour event the week before we arrived.

Overall our group was extremely pleased with our experience at the Hard Rock resort and I would not hesitate to recommend this resort. If you want further information on the resort or the golf, feel free to contact me.

“Which Nicklaus designer?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Did one of the sons design the course? Where's the clubhouse? Someone please sharpen the mower blades!!! Who brought back shag Bermuda carpet? Slow greens. Forgiving fairways but soft. Unraked bunkers from the tropical rains. Glad I didn't pay cash out of pocket for my rounds at $240.

“Great Golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is my second trip to the Hard rock hotel and this golf course and was lucky enough to play another six rounds here during my stay. The course was in superb condition and is a fair test of golf although you do need to keep the ball in play or you are in the jungle. The staff here are very good and work hard to make your round enjoyable. Sandy and juan have a good team. There is a refreshment cart that does come round (with your favourite tipple if you ask) and sandwiches again if you ask and all included in you green fee. My wife came with me as a non golfing rider and this cost $35 you can use resort$$ to pay for this too.
