ok i have only played cocotal and iberostate but barcello on the lake was head and shoulder above in my opinion, will golf there if I come back best value

some holes go deep into the "jungle" so you really feel you are playing in an exotic place
beware there are LOTS of water hazard and if like me you are not as accurate as you would want you WILL lose some balls

course: rather short but this is because I start from whites, there are further tees but the black ones look really challenging
loved the scenary with lots of mangrove and some holes kind of deep in the jungle feeling (ok maybe i have too much imagination)

grass: loved it, smooth greens much better than other course I played in punta cana

Practice: just next to hole 1 (great for warmup), hitting of mats which is a pity and the attendant could give more balls but I think you can ask for more - they really should change this

carts: top notch including ball and club cleaner on the cart alog with compulsory ice bucket to cool drinks

drinks included but they don t have gatorade

very friendly staff

overall very good value for puntacana ($135 after 2pm) but on the expensive side compared to home

hope it helps

just a great golf course in immaculate condition plenty of wild life including the pink flamingo's tight fairways and hard greens but a must play if you stay at resort

Golfed 5 straight days at 6:45 am. The course was in awesome shape, once in 5 rounds did I hit off of bare ground while in the fairway. The course might be short but has a lot of challenges. You need to be straight off the tee box or plan on losing some balls. A lot of elevated greens that I had a hard time getting the ball to hold. One problem when teeing off that early was the greens where not mowed or rolled yet which made it a little tougher. The par 3's all had a lot of water and or sand which made them tough. I paid $40 per round which I thought was a great deal for the quality of this course. They did have a deal going if I purchased 4 rounds at one time at 27.52 a round ( at the time was not sure if I could fit it all in). Tip.. Put the driver away on a lot of holes and hit it straight. Was lucky each day to play with Owen from the UK(both shot about the same). Gary

Conditions were great, weather was sunny& HOT, rental clubs were a nice set of Callaways. Free golf for guests? NOT. $40 for the cart, $40 to rent clubs

course had 3 or 4 holes out of service ...significant grass clippings in fairway required you to hit in to work crews or go around. we chose to go around. it was a mess...
