Golf Destinations: Coco Beach Golf Resort

Two championship golf courses showcase the new Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico.

Framed against the backdrop of the beautiful El Yunque rainforest on one side, the Atlantic Ocean on the other, Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico is a family-friendly luxury resort within easy reach of San Juan International Airport and famous attractions like Old San Juan, El Morro castle, and the Laguna Grande bioluminescent bay in Fajardo. Refreshed with a multi-million-dollar renovation that was completed in December 2019, the former site of the Gran Melia Hotel has been transformed into the Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico. Guests can enjoy beachside suites only steps from the water and a couple of inspiring golf courses nearby.

PGA Tour Caliber Golf Courses

With two Tom Kite-designed 18-hole courses, named Championship and International, Coco Beach Golf Resort hosts the Puerto Rico Open, a PGA Tour event. That the highest level of competitive professional golf is played on Coco Beach Golf Resort’s Championship Course attests to its excellence. Tony Finau, Jason Day, Jordan Speith, and many other elite players have competed at Coco Beach, which has hosted the Puerto Rico Open for more than a decade.

Comprised of four distinct 9-hole circuits, Coco Beach has astounding views of the sea and mountains, and it features an abundance of water features and coconut trees. A luxurious clubhouse and first-class service define the guest experience at the remarkable golf resort. Ample tee times, top-notch instruction, play-like-a-pro caddy services, numerous sets of tee boxes (with yardages to suit every player’s preference), and a finely appointed golf shop are some of what makes Coco Beach Golf Resort a must-visit golf venue on the island.

Its 28,000 acres are crisscrossed with hiking trails, waterfalls, and streams, which is a mind-blowing journey for nature lovers.
