I have been fortunate to be able to bring groups of tennis players from Victoria to El Palmar for 7 days of great tennis and relaxing fun in the sun many times over, hosted and managed by John and Rosa Lapointe. Everyone, whether they are novice or experienced players enjoy tennis each day, we are driven there (a quick 15 min drive), given lessons/introductory clinics and play tennis for a at least two hours each morning with each other and some of the locals. For those who love the game and want to have an ultimate tennis holiday, El Palmar is perfect.
We've been coming to John and Rosa's place for 11 years and we are never disappointed. Tennis in the morning on red clay courts, pool time in the afternoon and then a margarita to watch the sunset.
Muchas gracias para su hospitalidad. Even though several Canadians had been to Melaque, I wasn't prepared for the beauty of the hotel, beach and tennis courts. Stupendous!
From the very first day everything was a delight; the ambience and friendliness of your hotel and staff, the beauty of the beach and the artistically appointed and well equipped suites. The pretty and well maintained clay tennis courts cannot surely be matched. I was particularly impressed by Fergie's skilful and patient lessons. They were the best! The positive interaction of all the people I met through your tennis camp was the highlight of my trip. A great experience!
I have shown the pictures to the Ladies at our club and they were very favourably impressed. Let's go they say! I'll get them organized for next winter.
Thanks for the great vacation,
See you again for sure!
We had a great room on the top floor - 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Super!!! Each morning we were whisked away with other tennis people to a private tennis club located about 15 miles away or so. It was great fun to meet other people who enjoy tennis. We also enjoyed the Wednesday night get together where everyone brought a dish to share. We hope to go back!
Highly recommended! Tennis every morning on 4 beautiful red clay courts - who could ask for more! El Palmar is very laid back and relaxed, and the price is right!
