    Two issues of concern: our concierge arranged gold and return golf course provided taxi transportation our Cancun hotel after our round. After our round, we were told they planned it for two hours after our round ended and to wait. After requesting a taxi be moved up TWICE, a taxi arrived, the driver spoke to the front desk, we were taken to our hotel, and the driver still asked for cab fare.

    Second and more frightening, the only place I used my credit card on the week's vacation was at the Riviera Cancun golf course. Turns out there were 3 unauthorized purchases made in Miami the next day for $1000.

    Caution, pay cash, arrange own transportation, and consider playing somewhere else.

    Played June 8 2016. Absolutely beautiful course carved out of the jungle, saw several crocs, coatamundi, and lots of iguanas and colorful birds. Greens were pristine, but fairly coursely cut so a bit slow, and rarely more than 2% slope near hole. Although some tough pin positions. Many fairways were narrow with jungle or water on the sides, super important to hit straight drives or your ball is lost, which probably accounts for this high slope/rating 74.1/139. Overall, really fun track, I'd go back!

    4 of us went May 20th 2016. All decent golfers one plays for a collage in Utah. We all have golfed great courses, but we all thought this one was one of the best. The service we received was awesome. Picked us up at our hotel and brought us here. We had some drinks before we started and then we were off. Great and challenging holes beautiful. Greens and fairways perfect. Grounds people real friendly. The girl bringing the drinks and food around there when we needed her. The 17th hole looking out to the ocean was a great way to go to the 18th and then the 19th and have a great meal and drinks. What a day you have to try this course well worth the price. We will be back. Thank You Doug and Friends (UT)

    A really nice course. Excellent value. Close to all the resorts and a short $ cab ride. I highly recommend playing it if you are staying at a resort nearby and want a really good test of golf. We are going to play again before we leave.

    The course was in great shape and condition. The pin positions were quite challenging, but not impossible.
    All-and-all a great playing day!

    Staff was very helpful.
    I will definitely play it again
