The fairways were very nice and they had crocodiles in a few of the water hazards. The sand was hard in a literal sense (need more sand), so not very nice when you had to play out of there. Some good views of the ocean. The price of a full round seemed reasonable.
Equipment: They have rentals and I would definitely recommend a cart because of the heat. I am not sure if they insist you use a caddy. Remember the most important piece of equipment, sunscreen!!
In the hotelarea of Ixtapa you can do any kind of watersports and beach activities.
Parasailing, jetski, banana ride.
