The hotel is well appointed and comfortable. There are long walks on covered boardwalks to many of the of the rooms. This is important protection when it rains. The staff is very courteous and helpful. A professional attitude exist throughout the hotel.
The golf course is another story. This part of the experience was terrible and the reason for the low scores. This property sells itself as a golf resort but it doesn't act like one. A golf resort is Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta (Canada) or Bandon Dunes in Oregon. The course was in very bad shape. Many of the fairways were mud as they were under repair. Club rental varied from $30.00 to $80.00 and nobody explained the difference until after the round. In our threesome, we had 3 caddies and three carts. One would have been more than enough. The course plays long so take lots of balls. If you have generous hands bring your own glove as their's are too small. Lastly, the transfer from the hotel to the course was provided by the hotel in their courtesy car, which we believed was provided for hotel guest. Well there again there was a hidden cost. In summary, this aspect of this resort is very shady and I can play better course for much less in many other places in the world.
