I've played here a couple of times. The course is always in good shape, the pro shop staff and starters are nice. Could use a little more variety of food at the lounge/restaurant. I understand that it takes a lot of money to run this place, just wish it was a little more affordable. It is cool to play the... More

Course is excellent. Pro shop staff is terrible. Arrogant, unprofessional. Recorded reservation incorrectly and did not even apologize. There was no question that the pro shop made the mistake but would not accept responsibility.

Played El Camaleon Mayakoba as a single and quickly paired up with a twosome - outstanding course / facilities / caddy - world class place!

An amazing course. Incredible views and very nice fairways. Green roll true. Lots of false fronts require razor accuracy. Seems to play about 500 yards longer. Really cool course. Recommend Adan as your caddie.

My husband and I love the golf club at El Camaleon! My husband has played about a dozen rounds on this course, most of which I have written along in the cart for. The golf stuff is incredibly accommodating to couples, and does not charge a cart fee or spectator fee to ride along! Obviously this is an outstanding course,... More

Decent course, but overrated and not worth the $300 / round. Not particularly interesting, fairly straightforward course - was also expecting more in terms of views - you can only see the ocean from one of the holes (the 14th). Staff is ok, neither friendly nor unfriendly, sometimes they say they'll do something and never do it.

high end golfing experience. Golf course is in great shape and fun to play. tight fairways with dense jungle lead to a lot of lost golf balls. Restaurant after round was great, taco's and a cold beer were on point.

How disappointing! This is a nice course, but definitely not worth $300 / round! We had no less than 4 maintenance vehicles on each and every hole! They were everywhere - even in the middle of the fairway . They never stopped - or even slowed down when we were hitting. It was a circus - maintenance carts, tourist carts,... More
