Riviera Cancun Golf & Resorts
The Riviera Cancun Golf Club is the most recent addition to Cancun. Jack Nicklaus has done remarkable job carving this gem using the natural contours of the terrain, this course boasts strategic bunkering, immaculate greens, wooden bridges and the peaceful tranquility of the natural reserve that surrounds the course. Golfers will also enjoy the ocean views on holes 14 and 15.
The spectacular Mexican-Contemporary Club house greets guests before they begin their journey over bridges, through the dunes, mangroves and lakes which are only some of the elements which make this course visually stunning. The resort is 100% Mexican owned and is located in the Hotel Zone and only 5 minutes from the airport.

I numerous species of birds, a nutria and this iguana. I did catch a glimpse of an alligator on hole #18 but the rum wore off by then. Photo submitted by zengolfer0819 on 04/27/2019

Tight fairways and a lot of undulating greens. You need to bring A game or a lot of golf balls. Lots of wildlife.
Feedback pros and cons
The course was in rely great condition. Fairway and greens was really up to par. Few bunkers is rocky buy over all wonderful course. Just to pack
One of my favorites!
Great staff great course. Always a pleasure to spend time at Riviera Cancun.
You'll want to return to this course
Riviera Cancun has an excellent friendly staff that will make you feel right at home. Greens gave me the best putting I have ever had. Hit drives straight to well kept fairways, or bring extra balls, mangroves are thick. This all inclusive day kept us hydrated and the burger was great.
Good, but expected more
Fun, tight layout but was disappointed there was only 1 hole with a very small ocean view. And the greens seemed to have been punched recently so were very bumpy and sandy.
Staff was very nice and I loved the all inclusive feature, including alcohol.
It was also fun seeing a cioti (racoon-looking monkey), tons of iguanas and a few small alligators.
Awesome golf course
This is a great golf course in great condition. It always plays a little soft due to the surrounding conditions. Nice driving range, but the range balls are awful. Just a recommendation - play up one tee because the ball does not run out off the tee. Lots of wildlife and a beautiful layout. Very friendly staff, but the food is limited due to Covid. The starter, Adam was very helpful.
I’ve played here several times in the past few years and always enjoy it. The layout is great with lots of variety and strategy. Every person I encountered was fantastic - friendly and helpful. We went to Mayakoba the day before and both my friend and I agreed we like Riviera the best (although the conditioning at Mayakoba was impeccable). The course conditions at Riviera were above average although the greens were still recovering from aeration a couple of weeks ago so still a bit sandy. Try this course, you won’t be disappointed!
Great course on the outskirts of the hotel zone! Meticulously maintained along with some beautiful views. The head pro and his staff (Adan, Angel and Deky) took care of everything we needed and more. Well worth the price of admission!
Good value it is all inclusive!
An excellent course extremely challenging a lot of bunkers in great shape. I think it is the best value in Cancun as it is all inclusive including beers and food.
nice course. Conditions are a bit spotty
This is a very good lay out. The back 9 is considerably tougher as fairways narrow. Conditions are good but not great. Many ground under repair areas, brown outs and the sand is very rough w. small stones. That said it was a fun game.
Awesome golf experience, challenging course....... bring balls or hit the fairways!?!?
Great round of golf.
I really enjoyed my experience at Riviera Cancun. The course was tough but fair. There are a lot of water carries off the tee and if you miss the fairway and rough you will not find your ball. That being said, the layout is excellent and keeps your attention. The service at the course from the checkin to the end of the round is fantastic. All your food and drinks on the course and at the 19th hole are included in your green fee. The drink cart comes by every three holes. It rained during the round and there were thatched roof waiting areas to sit it out which was great for staying dry. I will definitely play Riviera Cancun again. It is a bit more expensive than some of the other courses in the area, but the service and course conditions make it worth the price.
Very good course, well maintained. Difficult, lots of forced water carries. Food and service we're exce5.
Hi Do you know what this course has for rental clubs.
What else can I say. Less than a 30 minute taxi ride from near downtown CanCun. The course was excellent. From the driving range right thru the 18th hole. Along with the greens fees the cart came around regularly for refreshments. The lunch after the round at the 19th hole. All food and drink were complimentary!!! It's a Nicklaus designed course and it was in excellent condition.
Great golf day
About a 25 minute taxi ride from the Westin lagunamar- and well worth it. Course was in great shape- free range balls- free food and drink. All covered with the greens fees!
Very nice layout...greens were good but slow. We were out there seemingly by ourselves which was awesome...no houses, condos, or hotel rooms on the course. It was an all inclusive deal where F&B were included. Cart attendant was very nice. Two negatives on this course.
1-There was some kind of smell that was similar to like a paper mill.
2-Around 14,15 and 16, there was some loud construction noises that were irritating.
But, the holes were top notch and it I would recommend it.
