GolfKings visit to Mexico

Moon Palace Cancun

The first stop on my Cancun crusade and one of the most popular resorts in Mexico, Moon Palace Cancun. I was really impressed with the attention to detail by the staff and was recommended to try the steak restaurant for my dinner during check in. After a long flight, I duly agreed and after a superb sirloin, a couple of coronas and a margarita (when in Rome), I was off to my room for the evening and be up and at'em for my first full day.

Moon Palace Cancun Offers
Hotel:

It is easy to see why Moon Palace is the popular choice for many golfers in Mexico (and non-golfers too), there is a plethora of dining options, to keep everyone happy. Breakfast needs to be experienced to be believed, with so much variety that early in the morning, it is far too easy to get carried away and end up having 3 courses!

Golf:

Golf at Moon Palace is the perfect introduction to golf in Mexico, you are in amongst the thick mangroves that engulf so much of the surrounding terrain. There are 27 holes to choose from, making it fantastic fun to play the different combinations during your stay. I was playing the Dunes and (aptly named) Jungle 9’s – with the Lakes 9 being closed for maintenance. Condition was excellent and the mix of holes on offer was great to keep you engaged throughout your round. The service is second to none, with food and drinks included throughout your round and in the clubhouse.

ATELIER Playa Mujeres

The newest hotel in GolfKings Mexico offerings, I was really excited to stay here for a couple of nights and was blown away by the hotel. Upon arrival it oozes 5 star luxury and the views from various spots in the hotel over the golf course and out to the Caribbean Sea are worth the stay alone. Then you are whisked to your room and it gets even better, with high spec fixtures and fittings and a great big comfy bed - even the toiletries were high end!

ATELIER Playa Mujeres Offers
Hotel:

There is nothing better than a beer on a balcony, overlooking the sea or a golf course, ATELIER has both! I was treated to surf and turf dinner at El Suspiro, which was incredible. The hotel has everything you could ever need for a golf holiday, or any holiday for that matter, with attentive staff ready to aid you at every turn.

Golf:

Golf at Playa Mujeres on site at ATELIER is super convenient and only a short shuttle from the front desk of the hotel. We played in testing windy conditions, this meant that the course demanded maximum respect and full attention over every shot. The golf course is really enjoyable to play, with holes playing right down to the beach, giving great sea views.

Iberostar Grand Paraiso

The last hotel stay on my visit was at the brilliant Iberostar Grand Paraiso, which is only 30 minutes from Cancun Airport. We feature many Iberostar Hotels and Resorts in Europe, it is always a fantastic offering for lots of great golf destinations and with a high focus on the quality of their food and beverage, I knew I was in for a treat.

The Grand is the top option available and you are assigned your own butler on arrival, who looks after your entire stay, no matter how long (or in my case) short you are in resort. I need to give a mention to Fernando, who supplied me with 5 star, top class service.

Iberostar Grand Paraiso Offers
Hotel:

A stunning beachfront hotel, with classic decor and a really luxurious ambiance, you are made to feel instantly at home and relaxed. The rooms are generous in size and the in room mini-bar is fully stocked and replenished daily with snacks, soft drinks and local beers. 

Guests of Iberostar Grand Paraiso can dine at any of the restaurants in resort, with the options in the Grand only available to guests staying here. This means guests staying longer can dine around and not  need to revisit anywhere for their dinner.

Golf:

Playa Paraiso Golf Club is a Pete Dye design golf course and was my last round of golf in Mexico. What an absolute treat it was and a great way to finish my Mexico trip. The tees, fairways and greens were like carpet and an absolute dream to play. The front and back 9s are very different, with more jungle and tree-lined holes on the front and then coming home you need to keep the ball as dry as you can, avoiding lots of water hazards and creeks.

More Golf

We were able to also play some extra rounds of golf on top of the golf resorts that we visited and stayed in. There are some great golf courses all the way doen the coast line, with something to suit any and every standard of golfer.

El Tinto Golf Course Cancun:

El Tinto is a great golf course to play the more relaxed golfer. It is close to Cancun Airport, so the perfect start to any golf holiday in Mexico. Fairways are generous and your food and drinks are included off the buggy bar during your round. It is a very fun golf course and might have had the comfiest golf carts I have ever had the pleasure of driving!

PGA Riviera Maya Golf:

This golf course sure has the WOW factor, from the moment of arrival. It was a slightly longer transfer to visit here, but more than worth the journey. Loads of holes use the natural caves as hazards, making it visually stunning to play. I played particularly well, which helps.

The golf course is a stop on the Korn Ferry Tour and always presented in immaculate condition.

Golf Puerto Cancun:

A very fair golf course, situated in Cancun, so a busier location than some of the other courses that we played. It was a great layout and felt a little like playing golf in the heart of the city, which was a lot of fun and completely different atmosphere than we were used to, with holes playing right down to the harbour. I loved it.

The golf course offers complimentary transfers to and from loads of the surrounding hotels.

A huge thank you to all of our generous suppliers for their help setting up this visit for me and your incredible hospitality throughout my stay - Fraser Grant.
