We were staying at the rosewood mayakoba which is a short ride from the hotel=went for the weekly membership deal and played every day for a week. We saw the Mexico national team practicing on the driving range. Lots of great wild life-including a spider monkey with a great personality on the practice putting green. Big thanks to Epi and...

My husband and young son played El Camaleon while we were guests of the adjacent Fairmont Mayakoba resort. The course is exquisite, and the facilities were amazing. The pro shop staff were also attentive to our needs and questions. They offered a great super twilight special that would make the course within reach for even a more budget-minded traveler. It's...

I could play this course every day for the remainder of my life. The course is the best manicured course I have ever played. Very fair for all levels of golfers. Several holes have fantastic views of the Gulf.

I agree with the reviews about the golf course. However, the customer service at the pro-shop is terrible. Lisette is poor at communicating and does not know how to deal with customers. It is hard to believe that such a gorgeous place has such a bad service.

I played solo. Tee time was first off, at 7am. Had the course to myself and didn't have to yell "fore" on the six balls I lost. The course was in amazing shape. It is always nice to see how the practice areas are congruent with the actual course. They are true. The greens rolled well. The scenery on the... More

The course exceeded expectations. Yes it was expensive so if you are operating on a tight budget maybe you should skip this one. I read several reviews that stated the course was in poor shape. Luckily I went with the common sense that if a tour event is played there every year than most likely it would be in good... More

The grass is paspalm so the rough is like velcro to your club head. However in the fairways you get a great roll. Greens were beautiful. Traps were good. Staff was excellent. Marshal was great. He got us out every day where we breezed the course. Cant wait to go back.

Cannot recommend this place high enough. From start to finish the service was impeccable, the clubhouse, grounds and course stunning and the rental clubs were the highest quality I've seen. Be prepared for a high price tag but in my opinion worth every penny.
