    On our 1st day in Mexico I was half asleep on the sun lounger,opened my eyes & this massive lizard was about 5ft from my head.
    Shat my pants 😂

    The lizard was just casually chewing on a flower.

    I went there in 2013. Course was very good and in great shape. Half way houses do wicked margaritas so be careful. Complex is huge...all restaurants were good too. Great place.

    I took my clubs as it's no different taking them to Spain...I drove to the airport a got on the plane! How long they are on the plane makes no difference! Depends how many rounds you want to play. Email them for info re rental clubs...they are very helpful.

    Great place... saw lots of gators on the course. Don't bother fishing out the Topflite at the waters edge though! You could lose your foot

    Brings back memories, we went there for our honeymoon way back in 1997 when it was fairly newly opened. Was a lovely hotel,the food was good and also included branded spirits not the local firewater you often get on all inclusive. Not sure if there even was a golf course back then but I didn't play if there was. Do remember it was extremely hot though at the peak time of day and that they had a little nightclub and used to go round feeding you with tequila slammers.
