I've played many of the local courses including both Iberostars, Mayakoba, Riviera Cancun, Grand Coral, El Tinto, and Playa Mujeres. This by far is the most difficult in terms of greens. They are small, fast, and surrounded by hazards. I found bunkers in many of the holes that you cannot see from the fairway. Some of the greens are so... More

I have to say the course is worth somewhere in the $50-75 range. I wouldn't pay more than this. The course was in good condition however it is extremely narrow and the greens are the smallest I've every played. I'm a 5 handicap and shot 80 and 82 on my two days. The burmuda greens roll great and the fairways... More

I played a the off chance due a cancelled trip so used the money to play golf instead. 20% discount due to staying in a Riu hotel. That got the price down to $102 (£70-£80) I had to hire clubs which was $50 so taking it up to $152. It wasn't until I paid they told me no balls are... More

This course is very over priced at 120$ for twilight I don't care how much booze you drink the pro shop is slow and very unfriendly all and all the service sucked. The course is fine and should be about $75 in the afternoon at the most . I took a afternoon time here on a lark when I called... More

First off the course itself is very good, it's challenging but fair. The holes are varied, it is picturesque and well laid out, and was in good condition. I got a really good deal through teeoff.com, I paid $96 pp (hubby & I) which I thought was reasonable for a course of this standard. However the rack is $220 which... More

This golf course if not for beginners, but it's not the most difficult out there either. It was in great shape considering how difficult it can be to maintain courses in the blazing heat and humidity. Make sure you stock on balls, since you will lost many in the trees and water ponds. And buy them elsewhere than at the... More

Played there twice it was so nice. Got a great deal on golfnow.com. Stayed at a Villa down the street and they actually came in a golf cart and picked me up and took me back after playing. If they give you a wrist band, meals and beverages are complimentary for the day.

We were not guests of there resort but played golf twice during our stay. Drinks & food are included in your fee, BUT, the inventory is small, beers don't stay cold on the course & a cooler for the cart would be logical idea. Highly recommend the management think about stocking plenty of beer when it is included in the... More
