Great Facility and overall great time

Course has a very friendly staff and an all inclusive feature for meals and drinks while playing. The course is in good shape and challenging. Youo have to keep the ball in play since both sides of the holes are lines with jungle. We lost 2 balls during the round and this is from 2 people that usually play a few rounds with a ball.

I will recommend it hightly.

All inclusive

All inclusive as far as drinks and food. May want to make sure you bring your own clubs. $42 American to rent clubs for 18 holes seems rather excessive. ESP in Mexico. Kinda goes with crazy numbers for green fees I guess

Great GolfNow deal

Played here on Christmas Day and thoroughly enjoyed. Would normally play further back but the white tees are just great for holiday golf - especially on this course which has fairly narrow fairways and small greens. The pace on the front nine is very slow (both days we played were well over 2.5 hours) but the back nine was much quicker at 2 hours and is a nicer layout. The course is well looked after though the greens are fairly slow and uneven. Grand Coral we’re much better. The all inclusive food and beverage is great though one word of warning - I think it’s the 11th tee is where loads of caotis gather and look for food. Not dangerous or frightening but if you leave your cart unattended they’ll be into everything.

Super All inclusive

Naprosto výjimečná služba All inclusive, kdy je veškeré občerstvení (jídlo, pití všeho druhu) poskytováno v průběhu celého dne zdarma.

Hřiště je ve velmi slušné kondici, jen je pro průměrného hráče díky úzkým fervejím poněkud náročné.

Would play again

I booked an early morning round at the Hard Rock Golf Club in Playacar on a Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Teeing off at 7am there was only one pair in front of me and they played fast enough that I didn’t see them anymore after the third or fourth hole. After that the only people I saw on the course were maintenance staff or the cart boy. I thoroughly enjoyed playing in peace, at my own pace. The course was in great shape but slightly too narrow for many of my drives... In the end, I’d played one of my worst scores in years but I’d happily play the course again!

Excellent Course

Played this course twice this week. The staff went above and beyond to help. Marlene in the clubhouse was a great server and extremely friendly. Fer was constantly coming around the course with drinks and snacks. The guys were ready with the cart and drinks and clubs. The course was extremely challenging, especially the back 9. Love the all inclusive part with the golfing. Will definitely go back and recommend it to anyone who wants a great course to golf at.

Great course - and value!

The green and fairways are first class as is the course layout. Playing the whites on the front is a mistake although it helps you get through a very challenging and tight layout with tight doglegs. Better to play purple which puts a bit more stress on getting a solid and accurate tee shot. The greens were a bit bumpy but it appears they may have been aerated within the last couple of weeks. Paco Taco the starter was super friendly and managed the placement of 2 s ahead of 4 somes superbly. Other players on the course graciously let us play through and we were done in 3 hours. Food choices were just OK in the snack bar and I had a bad experience following a hot dog (should not have done that!). All in all fantastic value for money and my commendations to the welcoming staff team.

Great golf right in Playa del Carmen

The staff at the Hard Rock work very hard to ensure a pleasant golfing experience. Everyone from the pro-shop staff to the maintenance crew are friendly, helpful, and polite. The course is beautiful and well maintained. If you're lacking precision off the tee, I recommend bringing a few extra balls.

Hokie layout

This course was in good shape. The works were nice and helpful. If you don’t mind not hitting driver off of any holes on the front nine then this is the course for you. I really didn’t like that layout of the course. It would be nice if they course had a gps system or even a map laying out each hole. A lot of blind tee shots with no real knowledge of what to except after your tee shot.

Nicer course for price

I had lucky to book this course by golfnow.com, paying $54 person, regular price $180, with hotel booking $95. This is second time played. Overall course was well maintained, right distance for me ,old person. It was slight slower pace to play, back 9 holes was much better designed and more scenery. Club provide pick up from hotel, free foods and drinks. Compared to other local course, very expensive $200 -$330, it is worth to play for money and course design.
