Friends Getaway

There's 4 of us in our mid 20s, leaving the wives at home, looking for somewhere to stay with quiet beaches and a few surrounding golf courses. We're looking to play golf every day while we're there all while enjoying the resort when we're done. Ideally the resort will be clean with a nice beach to relax on. Quality food is key as well.

I realize most of these place cater to couples and we can't avoid this, but we also don't want to be the only friends at a couples resort. Ideas?

small adults only not just couples is the PCP with the option for more next door where the atmophere is more lively if you want . so it is the best of both worlds.

Larger that suits everyone is the Palladium, the PC section or Palace section is better situated

fun is Ocean Blue/Sand golf resort that has a golf course at the gates

this golf course is also in front of the pcp as ocean and pcp are separated only by one resort. it is further to the Palladium but not by much

Melia has golf and is also a large resort with choices.

Iberostar is always a hit with groups.

quiet beach - is the part I missed the first time I answered this question.

when quiet, do you mean, no people walking the beach, or not too many fellow resorters crowded together, or no activities and music?

All of the above mentioned resorts will have walkers along the water's edge in the harder part of the sand. Palladium had many fellow resorters crowed together (January high season), PCP wasn't that bad in terms of activity level, or crowding, but did have walkers. Ocean has walkers and not too bad on the beach but the shade structures limit mobility, Melia, don't know.
