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!
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 stayed at El Palmar for the eighth time in eleven years of travelling to Mexico-there is a reason for continuing to return to el Palmar, it is a blast! These words come to mind: Sunshine, clean rooms, great site, tennis, bikes, friends, camaraderie, pot luck, restaurants, bollios, Oso & Gatoito--and, "feels like home..." John, Rosa, Kathy and staff continue...
We had a great time at El Palmar. As advertised, the tennis, and the hospitality were all amazing, but what we weren't expecting was that we were right next door to the best part of the beach. Quiet, beautiful, and endlessly relaxing. We would definitely go back!
We flew into Puerta Villarta, rented a car, and enjoyed the drive to melaque. We found plenty of good places to eat, and enjoyed the lovely beach and the morning tennis. We loved our spacious and beautiful Suite; the rooms were clean and spacious, the furniture comfortable, and the bed divine. The weather was great, and we will definitely be back.
