review Global Golf Connections

This is a Global Golf Connection review of golfing here in Playa Del Carmen, we don´t only do timeshare you know! The Riviera Maya and especially Playa del Carmen are fast becoming a top destination for golf enthusiasts and garnering sparkling reviews from golfers all over the world who visit Global Golf Connections golfing paradise.

Playacar Golf Club

Global Golf Connections reviews Playacar Golf Club first, at Paseo Xaman Ha s/n Mza 26, Lt 1, Fracc. Playacar, Playa del Carmen, Qunitana Roo 77710 Phone: 01-984-873-4960 Rates: Green fees start at $120, and club rentals range between $30 and $50. Amenities: A well-stocked pro shop, practice areas, restaurant and classes.

Playacar Golf Club in the south of beautiful Play Del Carmen offers a very special all inclusive golf experience, where all food and drink consumed throughout the course and at the 19th hole are included in the green fees. This par-72 course measures 7,144 yards and is surrounded by a numerous of lakes filled with tropical birds and lined by lush exotic jungle. The course was designed by Robert von Hagge, and has literally been carved out of the dense Caribbean jungle, creating a truly and utterly unique golf experience that will not be forgotten. Round-trip transportation from the hotel is also included.

El Camaleon Mayakoba Golf Club

The second Global Golf Connections review is El Camalion Mayakoba, the address is Carr. Fed. Chetumal-Pto Juarez, Pureto Juarez Km 298 R, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, 77710 Phone: 01 (984) 206-3088 Rates: Green fees $144, shoe rental around $20 with club rental $70 Amenities: Practice facilities, GPS yardage and golfer assistance systems, restaurant, clubhouse, golfing shop and golf school for those who need to review their skills.

El Camaleón Golf course (a favourite of Global Golf Connections) has been designed by the god among men Greg Norman. The par-72, 7,000-yard ground is unique, the breath taking 18-hole golf course combinds the three different landscapes: dense jungle, mangrove forests and ocean front.  The 10th hole is yet another short hole; the figure eight is lined with drama. A shot a little too long to the right drops down deep into the canal.

El Manglar Vidanta Golf Riviera Maya

The next review for Global Golf Connections is El Manglar Vidanta Golf, Carretera Cancun-Tulum Km. 48, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, 77710 Mexico Phone: 01 (984) 206-4043, 01 (984) 206-4042 Rates: Green fees start at $89 Amenities: Bag storage, pro shop, spa, restaurant and bar, practice range to review your shots before heading onto the green, putting green and short game area, shoes and club rental

El Manglar Vidanta Golf course is a another favourite of Global Golf Connections (we have many) and was designed by Jack Nicklaus. The 18 hole, par 54 golf course that is around 2,923 yards long, uses white sand traps and natural stone around. Hole 7 is a great challenge, and with a tee box that faces the sea and green surrounded by three sand traps and the wind in this area is always to the player’s disadvantage.

Club de Golf Puerto Aventuras Address: Km. 269.5 Carr. Chetumal – Pto. Juarez, Puerto Aventura, Quintana Roo, 77750 Phone: 01 (984) 473-5109 Rates: Green fees start at $88 and golf club rental $27 Amenities: Golf school, pro shop and tourism office

Scuba Diving Playa Del Carmen

Playa Del Carmen is one of the main scuba diving hubs of Mexico, you would be hard pressed to find another place in the world that has more diving diversity than Playa Del Carmen. All year round you can dive the off shore reefs via one of the many dive shops here in Playa such as Bull Shark Divers and Mexico Blue Dream. The reefs around Playa literally take around 10 to 15 minutes to reach and you have a good likelihood of spotting rays, turtles, barracudas and tarpon.

Cozumel once was the diving gem of the Caribbean and was at one moment Jacques Cousteaus favourite place in the world to dive. Though not what it once was due to sport fishing and over fishing in general but still worth a visit. A few of the best dive sites would have to be Santa Rosa wall, Colombia, shark caves and barracuda. The Global Golf Connections team regularly dive in Cozumel has frequently see Eagles rays, Nurse sharks, Barracuda, Lobster and turtles.

Playa Del Carmen and the Yucatan peninsula in general is famous for cave and cenote diving. The jungle around Playa Del Carmen is full of sink holes filled with fresh water tunnels that lead into an under ground labyrinth known as cenotes. Among our favourite cenotes to dive Dos Ojos and Angelita are probably our favourites though Angelita is technically in Tulum. Diving cenotes in Playa Del Carmen requires a special qualified guide (Cavern certified) and to enter the caves requires a high level of certification and should not be attempted by anyone who is not certified and fully equipped to do so.

Whale Shark Season is from May to September and the waters around Isla Mujeres witness the biggest aggregation of whale sharks in the world, sometimes as many as 200 whales sharks can been seen in the area in one day. The whale sharks and manta rays come to the waters around Isla Mujeres to feed upon Krill and Plankton and stay in the area for three or so months before moving on. Ocean Tours offers swim with whale sharks experience and is by far the best company to safely allow you to enter the water with these amazing animals.

From December through to February, Playa Del Carmen plays host to pregnant female Bull sharks who come to the still waters to rest and feed before giving birth. This is the most exciting time of the year for Playa Del Carmen divers as it is possible to dive and have close encounters with these amazing creatures at a depth of around 20 meters.

From Janurary through to around March the Global Golf Connections takes part in the Sail Fish bait ball snorkel experience. Large groups of sardines surround the waters of Isla Mujeres and are actively pursued by sail fish, dolphins and dusky sharks. Snorkelling among this natural spectacle is simply an amazing experience and if you love the water and wildlife plus a little adrenalin then this one is for you.

Restaurants and Bars

Playa Del Carmen is full of great restaurants and cool bars to hang out and dance the night away in. Global Golf Connections has a few favorites when it comes to restaurants, Fusion on six street with 5th avenue is literally right on the beach, the tables and chairs are in the sand! The food is absolutely fantastic. Vagabondos is quite possibly the best place in Playa Del Carmen to get a cheese burger, its relatively cheap too, plus they always have some sort of offer on cocktails etc. Renzo Pizza on 5th avenue between 24 and 26 street and also on avenue 10 between 6 street and 8 has the best grab n go pizza in Playa Del Carmen.

Playa has no shortage of night clubs and bars and if you are interested in the party scene then take a stroll down 12 street towards the beach and get ready to be leaving as the sun is coming up. Time flies during the party scene is Playa.

Avoid Being Scammed By Taxi Drivers

global golf connections scam by taxiThe latest Global Golf Connections scam warning concerns tourists vacationing in the Riviera Maya. Whether you vacation in Cabo San Lucas or Playa Del Carmen, the best way to get around is by taxi. is best done.

The most recent Global Golf Connections scam alert, relates to taxi drivers that rip-off tourists for a couple of extra dollars. The general price for taxi´s in the Riviera Maya is $70 peso which is around $5 USD,  locals pay around $40-$50 Peso´s, so anything above $70 pesos is a scam.

Many tourists end up being ripped off by the taxi scam and often pay $100 Peso of $10 USD for a taxi ride. There is no way you should have to $100 Pesos for anywhere in Playa Del Carmen even from the hotel zone in Playacar, to Mamitas beach is just $70 Peso´s.

The newest Global Golf Connections scam advice will probably save you money and time. The best thing that you can do to avoid taxi scams, and save time, is to ask in advance. Agree on a price before you step foot inside a taxi and remember that if you do not like the price there are over 2000 taxis operating in Playa Del Carmen. No body likes to get scammed by a taxi so make sure you follow Global Golf Connections advice.

Book In Advance

When arriving at the airport in Cancun, make sure that you have booked a shuttle in advance and taxis scam tourists for a living, often charging upwards of $100 USD to get to Playa Del Carmen. There is always the old fashioned way of getting around, so if you are that way inclined then, simply take the bus. The ADO is literally right outside the airport doors and one tenth of the price that you will pay at the hands of a taxi scam. Global Golf Connections scam advice is that you pre-book a shuttle or take the ADO bus to avoid taxi scams in Cancun.

Hotel internet time scam has been well documented by the Global Golf Connections scam unit, hotels will time scam vacationers with internet use. It is not really a scam by definition just an extremely bad product and worse service. Do not pay for internet at your hotel, it should be free and if it isn’t then simply find one of the hundred internet shops in and around Playa Del Carmen. The internet cards are expensive and work via usage, so if you access a web page that has a lot of images that your computer downloads the internet card will last about 5 minutes. Global Golf Connections has received many complaints about internet time scams from popular hotels, so it is something for vacationers to look out for.

Other scams that Global Golf Connections know exist in the Riviera Maya come from restaurants, where customers must be sure to check their bill to make sure that additional items have not been added on.

There are numerous complaints that bounce around the Internet concerning All inclusive resorts that have been unknowingly infiltrated by timeshare scam companies.

Timeshare Scam Reality

The word scam has such an expansive meaning and its thrown around like a frizz-bee, generally a scam implies that someone has been ripped off or lied to about something (in this case timeshare).

The amount of useful information on how to avoid timeshare scams by Global Golf Connections is simply overwhelming.

Yet tourist hot spots such as Cabo San Lucas, Cancun and Playa del Carmen still receive a large majority of complaints from vacationers. Global Golf Reviews timeshare scams to help promote awareness in the industry.

Everywhere you look, is another timeshare scam complaint on pissed consumer forums or another “trapped in the hotel scam” post on a blog. Why do people still keep getting scammed is it a case of survival of the fittest, Darwinism what is it? The truth is that the shady individuals who operate timeshare scam rings know exactly what to look for, they just lay in wait… watching the herds of tourists crossed the streets like wildebeest crossing a river… they know who the slow ones are, they  weed out the mentally weak tourists from the herd and snap them up.

Hotel Reputations

Global Golf Connections Scam Avoidance 

global golf connections scam avoidance Global Golf Connections scam avoidance techniques will help you avoid fraudulent timeshare offers from shell companies in Mexico.

Playa del Carmen  has it´s share of all inclusive resorts and hotels but without the hustle and bustle that accompanies Cancun. Just 30 years Playa del Carmen was just a small fishing village sitting opposite the pristine topaz blue waters of Cozumel. 

Nowadays Hordes of white taxis are patrolling the streets honking their horns at wondering tourists to see if they need a lift and the streets are lined with timeshare sales men, waiters and all sorts of sales men. Its hard to walk 5 streets on 5th avenue without being showered by enticing offers to part with your hard earned cash.

Like any popular tourist location in the world, Mexico has its share of tourist traps but using Global Golf Connections scam avoidance tips you can enjoy your vacation.

Avoiding Scams in Playa del Carmen

  • Airport taxi scam- Taxi´s that offer to transport you from the airport to your resort or timeshare in Playa Del Carmen will be looking to totally rip you off, the airport taxi scam is a universal scam and happens all over the globe. The best idea is to pre-book a shuttle with a reputable company.
  • Airport shuttle scam- Just like the Taxi´s waiting for you at the airport so too are the shuttle scammers who too are looking to rip off some newly arrived tourists. Pre-book your airport shuttle with a reputable company.
  • Taxi rip off- Once inside Playa Del Carmen- a taxi should never charge you more than $70 peso´s actually $40 is the correct rate for tourists, so any driver who quotes you a price over $70 pesos in Playa Del Carmen is attempting to rip you off. Also agree on the price before you enter a tax.
  • Restaurant and bar tabs, always double check your bill at the end of a meal at it is not uncommon that genuine and sometime deliberate mistakes have been made and items have been added onto your bill.
  • Rent a bike, and avoid being fined by the Police by always wearing a helmet and not riding your bike along fifth avenue.
  • Avoid like the Plague having your photo taken with baby tigers, monkeys and jaguars along fifth avenue, the last thing you want to do is encourage the illegal trade and smuggling of exotic animals by paying to have your picture taken with one.
  • Timeshare Scam, the dreaded timeshare scam that is plaguing the streets of Playa Del Carmen is a real red flag to watch out for. Anybody stopping you on the street with promises of a free breakfast at a five star resorts or a day of free waters sports in exchange for a 90 minute timeshare presentation is attempting to lure you into a timeshare scam. The best thing to do is simply say no and avoid the hassle of potentially being scammed by a timeshare rip off artist.
  • Avoid buying or renting a timeshare in Playa Del Carmen unless you have contacted Global Golf Connections as we are the experts in Playa Del Carmen when it comes to all things timeshare.
  • The ADO scam, most self sufficient travellers will wish to take the local ADO bus service to Playa Del Carmen as it is very cheap, air conditioned, regular and efficient. The last bus will leave Cancun airport at 12.00am at night so do not trust any taxi driver or shuttle service representative who informs you that the last bus has left before 12.00am or that there is no bus service.

Global Golf Connections Complaints Service

 Global Golf Connections Complaints Service


global golf connections complaints serviceGlobal Golf Connections Complaints Service was launched to help consumers. GGC believes it can further improve its world-class level reputation through great customer service.

Customer service means treating every single one of our customers as a human being, not a number or a dollar sign but as a person. Timeshare is a personal business because its the vacation business and nothing is more personal that your “get away from it all” vacation. Global Golf Connections complaints service believes in answering questions and queries quickly and getting back to customers who need help from anything such as finding the right airline ticket to losing the keys to their property (timeshare).

Customer service is basically customer care and a business that doesn’t partake in customer care simply does not care about customers and a business that doesn’t care about customers is going to have a hard time turning one off customers into repeat customers.

The trick with the timeshare industry is that usually once a customer buys a timeshare there is no need for repeat business from that customer. They have already bought their timeshare so what additional value do they offer a company… well first of all keep customers happy keeps your reputation in tact and in this day and age of digital attacks through cyberspace via unhappy customers it is important to do everything you can to help protect your reputation.

Not providing sustainable platform of support for your customers is counter productive to everything that your business wishes to achieve and completely contrary to the operational protocol that global golf connections has set in place and bases our company on. Global Golf Connections understand that not every timeshare will be received the same way by every single customers in fact one person could be over the moon with a specific timeshare a another could be completely dis-satisfied with the same timeshare. Trying to please every customer with the same timeshare is improbable, but providing customer service that allows customers a forum in which they can vent their issues is easy and pretty much cost free.

So why don´t more businesses provide a customer service platform to deal with customer issues, why don’t more businesses provide the fundamental primary to their customers? The problem lies in vacationers, when a timeshare vacationer takes their annual 10 day trip to Cancun their are a vast number of variables that influence their perceived perception of how their vacation fared against a previous or that of another vacationer. This makes vacationers a volatile group of customers, a group of customers who have invested substantially more input both financially and time wise than that of other customer groups for example the casual shopper.

Timeshare owners generally have to plan their own trips including  flights and airport shuttles or taxi´s then of course the most uncontrollable but directly applicable variable of valuable is the weather. The weather generally sets the guide lines to how good a holiday can be. If it is sunny than you can do just about anything but if you find yourself amidst a tropical storm then your choices are extremely limited. Then of course you have restaurants, events, sight seeing, social interactions, bars, clubs etc… these are all factors that influence the outcome of a timeshare owner or vacationers vocational experience. This basically makes timeshare owners and vacationers a volatile group of consumers, so there’s no wonder that most businesses do not provide adequate customer service as they believe that they would simple be swamped and sink under the weight.

So we have basically established that the consumer groups comprised of timeshare owners and vacationers are a volatile bunch in terms of complaints, due to the vast number of variables that effect the outcome of their vacations. We have also established that many time companies and vacational companies do not provide adequate customer service due to fear of being swamped by unhappy customers. What we are yet to establish is the vast number of benefits of offering a solid platform of customer service and customer care.

Listening To Customers

The people need a forum, your customers be them timeshare owners or vacationer oriented consumers they need a platform from which to vent and voice their points of view and experiences whether you like it or not (normally the latter). Disgruntled customers  usually vent their anger on the worlds largest pubic forum “The Internet” sometimes creating entire websites to share their dis-satisfaction with the entire planet. This is could all be avoided if you the company had simply set up a forum with direct communication between themselves and the customer… this is known as a customer service line and usually includes a telephone number. Communicating directly with a disgruntled customer allows you to fix their problem or at least acknowledge their complaints and saves you the trouble of attempting to clean up your reputation that now has graffiti all over it in the Cybersense of the word. Also opening up comms between you and your customers allows you to fix procedures that are not functioning and you otherwise would have never known about, all in all its pretty bunch a no brain-er and a win win situation for everyone.
