The Blue Monster is a great course, fun and challenging yet not impossible. Their "overflow" course the Silver was absolutely horrible! They should disassociate it from the name Doral -- it is that bad! There was a rotten odor on practically every hole. The Red was better (no smell) but not much. I would ONLY play Blue if we were ever in the area again.
The hotel itself was awful. We stayed in the newly re-done section (or so we were told) but we had to change rooms the first room was so bad I was ready to check out before we unpacked. There were cracks in hallway walls and peeling paint. Huge cockroaches too. A dead one was outside the elevator door on the second floor. It stayed there almost 2 days! I finally called the front desk and told them about it. I asked why the cleaning people hadn't taken care of it when they were around and received some silly explanation. It was cleaned up a few hours later.
The doormen, wait staff, and other people working there were very friendly but that does not make up for the poor condition of the hotel.
The bathrooms were not clean (hairs -- not ours!) and the rooms and common areas could/should have been cleaned better.
I wrote to the manager and told him about our experience and he said he wanted to make it up to us but we will never go back there -- not even for a free room!
