Wonderful visit to this golf course, four of us played around of 18 here and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. We had a group of varying ability and all found the course challenging but fun.

Course conditions:
We played in mid-April and the fairways were perfect, we played at about 3pm so the sun had made them very firm which helped propel a few well hit shots further but made chipping a bit hard the closer to the green. For players from the UK like us, do not expect any rough - there is only really fairway and OOB until you get near the greens and even then the second cut is very fine. Greens themselves were slow but challenging if not close to the pin, especially one hole that had a steep drop the other side of the pin.

Staff: all staff were brilliant, ordering drinks via the cart was great and the guy driving bought us extra ice (very much needed) even the groundstaff stepped in to give us some extra balls at a very reasonable price (think it was like $20 for 20 lake balls)

Price:

Our round for club hire/golf cart rental and some other fees was $135 we did not pay green fees as that was included in our stay at Dreams.

Clubs were in very good condition and were not at fault for some of the poor ball striking despite what some in our group may say in the moment

Would 100% play again if in Cancun

And we did see the gator on the last hole!

Great course! For us, the course provides a good balance of scenery, interesting hole designs, playability, and challenge. Most fairways are wide and green complexes provide reasonable bail-out options. However, outside of those generous fairways you're in deep jungle or water; so, really errant shots (or even good shots on windy days) wind up unplayable. Fortunately, a local rule allows all such areas to be played as lateral water hazards; so you can generally keep moving ahead with your group.

It is expensive if you're not staying at the associated resort, but the payoff for those high green fees is that it's usually not crowded at all during the week. They also offer some good specials depending on where you're staying and how much you play.

The staff are all awesome...first-class service throughout the entire experience.

The golf was priced as you would expect but I guess fair. We needed clubs, balls etc I believe it was about $130 per person total. Balls were $3 a ball. This course was great in perfect condition. We enjoyed the course greatly.

You may be quoted a green fee in USD. But if you are NOT paying in USD cash, beware! This club, different from others, uses a higher exchange rate to overcharge your credit card. Details: every currency exchange has a buy and sell rate. If you are paying by a credit card, the course wants you to BUY USD. So, they would calculate how much Peso you will need to buy a USD. Then they charge you in Peso! This way your credit card is over charged. What they should have done is to use the SELL rate to calculate how much THEY would get if they were to take your USD to the bank. They pretend they are doing it right, citing it's your bank service charge (it is NOT) and refuse to understand. Beware! If you ever paid a Mexican resort in USD, you would know they charge the exact USD quoted to your credit card.

Last day of our holiday, wanted to comment on the five rounds of golf I played at playa mujeres.
I have played nearly all the courses in Cancun and riviera maya, this being my first visit to playa. The booking process was so easy, using wots app I was able to communicate with the pro shop and book all my rounds in advance. I was staying nearby and transport to and from my hotel was part of the package. Because I played multiple rounds I payed 155 dollars each round. In terms of other courses in the area this is comparable, if a little expensive compared to the UK.
The booking in process was easy, a shout out to the marvellous lady, who’s name I missed, who was in charge of the pro shop and tee booking. She was a pleasure to deal with and a credit to the course.
The course itself was in excellent condition, I played off various tees and it presents a challenge for all standards, plenty of water but not too tight off the tee. All in all an excellent course that I would highly recommend if you are staying this side of cancun.

Beautiful golf course but certainly not free if you are staying at Dreams or Secrets Playa Mujeres. Advertised as free golf you still have to pay $98 each in tax and club hire is $60 per set. We had hoped to play several times but settled for once. PS you do get a free sleeve of balls each).

It’s a shame really as the course is quite beautiful. Brilliant wildlife (crocodiles, iguanas, herons, cormorants). Some of the holes are spectacular (particularly the 15th, I think, which runs down to the sea). One quirky thing is that you the golf cart path runs right through the beach area of the Atelier Studios hotel.

Golf shop is really good. However there are no changing rooms.

If I could give Playa Mujeres a dual rating, it would be 5+ for shape of the course and excellent staff. But, I would have to give a 3 for the conditions. I played the course twice and the wind were brutal. On both days winds were easily gusting 30-40mph. But as a stated, the staff, especially the bartender on the 19th were 5+. I would highly recommend the course, just pay attention to the weather.

I did not know exactly what to expect when My buddy and I left the resort (Secrets Playa Mujeres) in the direction of the golf course. Being a GN design I knew it was going to be challenging for sure. I was extremely pleased with the entire experience. From the process of checking in to the 18th green, I was blown away with the scenery that surrounded the course, the overall condition of the course, and the hospitality that the greens keepers and staff showed us during our time there. Keep up the great work!

We loved this course! We paid for my boyfriend to play, and for me to caddy for 18 holes. The views were amazing, and there is a chance you'll see a crocodile on the course! We only saw one other golfer the whole time, so we weren't waiting around at all. The place is well maintained, and the staff were all so friendly!

Well-designed course, and very well maintained. Not cheap, but not sure that any golf in Mexico is any longer! Greg Norman design. Nice, attentive staff. I found by booking the first available tee time, I could go off on my own and be back at my hotel by 10:30, with the rest of the day to enjoy the pool!
