“Good shape and tough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Expensive if you aren't at the right hotel (bahia principe etc) but take your clubs as they were $45 per round.

“If you're a golfer, you can't pass the opportunity to golf here!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My husband and his friend golfed both the courses and had a fantastic time. I visited the bar and pro shop which had a fantastic view of the 9th hole. Simply spectacular!

“Challenging golf on the Maya Riviera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Absolutely gorgeous RTJ course, but take lots of balls. The fairways are mostly narrow with a bit of slope, so on most holes, if your tee shot is not accurate, you'll be in the jungle or water. Just relax and enjoy. It's only a game, you know!

“Great Golf Day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Beautiful golf course that was extremely well kept-up. Wide open course with multiple tees, from 7,200 yards from the blacks all the way down to the ladies distance...something for everyone. Some trees and woods, some water, some killer sandtraps and by all means, beware a treacherous rough...not sure what type of grass it was, but it sure was tough.

The only downside to the "free" round while staying at Dreams Tulum were all the extra expenses...$80 charge to play in the am (premium time), $40 per person for a cart (more in the am) and worse, a $20 cab ride each way as the Resort didn't have a van for transport.

Still - for a "premium" course, it was a very nice day!

thought that was a rip off but payed it to keep her happy.
