Cocotal Golf & Country Club was designed by renowned architect Jose Gancedo, a six-time Spanish champion, who designed the golf course by following the area's natural terrain.

Cocotal features strategically placed trees, bunkers, mounds and gently rolling terrain, with well-defined and generous fairways to help overcome an unrelenting wind.

The par-72 golf course, which opened in 2000, measures 7,285 yards from the back tees and carries a rating of 75.2 and a slope of 131.

This is the Paradisus Resort unlimited golf package course. Yet it's still demanding a $60USD cart fee per person. Course was in bad shape with mud trench, not well maintained at all. In fact, some of our group played only 1 round here even with unlimited golf package. They rather paid extra to go to another course in the area, like Hardrock, Iberostar.

First time playing Used cart Wet weather

We played four rounds the second week in Feb. and for two of the rounds the course was saturated. We had a "cart path only" note on our cart steering wheel clip one day because it was so wet but when we got out on the course, the grounds crew were out in their tractors cutting the fairways creating a "mud pit" themselves. They just destroyed the course! Bunkers look like they have never been raked and some of the greens had some insect problems and were cut very inconsistent from one to the next.Ladies in the pro shop were not very friendly at all.

I would never pay this price for a round of golf at this caliber of course back home!

Stayed a week at Melia Tropical and had free golf at this place all week. Only thing I had to pay was for the cart. I played 5 out of 7 days. I had to pay $65 a cart. These carts were old and tired. The course was in good shape. Course consists of three 9 hole courses. You pick which 18 you want to play. Challenging for every type of golfer. There was the Hybicus which I found the easiest, Benjamina and Bougansville. Last 2 were a bit more challenging. Some holes are surrounded by condo's and homes. Could be better if it was in the right hands but its a resort course. Would I go back? Only if they lowered the price of their carts.
