  • The greens are very good however the fairway is blah. A bit expensive for the quality of the field. Golf quite simple but excellent caddy and very friendly. A bit expensive for the quality. $170US for 1 Green fee, rental of the bag, car and mandatory Caddy

  • First time golfing so I'm not an expert on courses, but the 6 other golfers in our group all said it was great. Caddies in particular were great... very patient and knowledgeable.
  • Good layout but fairway is gone years ago. Golf carts are old and bad looking. I was charged 80$ plus 20$ for a caddy (must) Really disappointed
  • Staff was friendly, well trained. Rooms were very comfortable, food was really good had a wonderful 7 night stay. I will definitely come again.
  • Location, food, and staff were good. Main gripes its only all inclusive but not certain things and there werent enough excursions. For example Each person was mandated to buy clubs (could not share) for golf at 40 for clubs per person and 20 cart fee 16 for 3 balls and tip the caddies. No snorkeling included exursion other than the shore.
  • Nice hideaway resort. Friendly, courteous staff, clean environment.
