During spring break I spent a number of days at the Grand Coral Riviera Maya and had a great experience. While planning my July vacation I was quick to reconnect with the Glenn Doyle/Director of Golf and the assistant golf pro Andrés Balladares-Sáenz. I had such a great experience with golf lessons from Andres that I brought my son to... More

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.

This is a very difficult golf course. The greens are in great condition. If you are not use to playing out of sand this will be very challenging to you, there are many sand traps that are in the most common spots that you would hit your ball. I had an issue with the travel agency that booked my tee... More

This was a great Nick Price layout. I enjoyed it even though the greens was as long as the fairway grass. It is worth the cost to check this course out.

We booked this vacation several months in advance.....I spoke to the golf course several times on the phone and by email. One item they failed to mention is they had recently aerated the greens recently. Most courses will let you know before you pay especially when you fee is approaching $175 for everything. Everything except the greens was great but... More

Secret Capri advertised complimentary golf which cost me $60 USD after a heavy bartering. The course was nice and very empty so I was done in less than three hours.
