We got married at the Grand Coral golf club in November 2015, coordinated by Linda Burchett, Wedding Planner. We were meant to get married at the beach club but due to El Nino and crazy weather at the time, we had to change last minute on the day to an indoor ceremony and reception. Our planner and the hotel did... More

This was My 1st outing at this course and overall the course was very nice. I got there about 7.25 am and went directly to the club house.

Played three rounds here three years ago. Played two rounds on this vacation. Still love this course. Excellent condition especially given summer heat and little rain. I love the challenge of this course with enough bunkers to keep you thinking through 18. Greens fees included if you're staying at Secrets resorts. Regular summer rates without that deal are still reasonable.... More

Nice, wide open course. I recommend buying a yardage book for a $1 inside the pro-shop as it will provide needed tips to conquer the course. Greens are a lot slower and harder to read than in the US.

This being a Nick Price course, I had very high hopes. Those hopes, however, were quickly dashed from the moment I entered the clubhouse. Very poor service, nickeled and dimed for everything and attempted to charge for services we did not utilize. Most courses I have played at this price point include range balls in the green fee. Not the... More

What a great place. Fantastic course, beautifully designed. We staggered round with some holes very forgiving and others punishing of any bad shots. It was a fantastic experience, at about $200 US all in, including club hire and balls, it was very reasonable. Great locker room and clubhouse. We had a great laugh, drank a lot of fluids (not all...

Golfed this course while on vacation in Riviera Maya and found it to be a really nice course. Had an early morning tee time (solo) and found this course to be a really nice one. Would definitely bring my clubs and golf here again!

Worst greens I've ever played. Bald spots on the greens. No water available had to pay $6 for a bottle of water. Over priced golf course they should charge no more than $20 with cart.
