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!
My husband and I were looking for tennis lessons and partners in a beach location and found this little gem of a hotel in Melaque just a few yards off the beach. We had the most wonderful 9 days and because of the intimate nature of the hotel and the shared tennis experience for those who were playing.
El Palmar is so well tended and comfortable - everyone feels like family there. The tennis is a big draw for us, but we'd go even if we weren't playing tennis!
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.
There are 4 clay courts nearby and El Patlmar's owner takes guests there and back by van for drop-in tennis matches. Melaque is not a luxury resort town which makes it a wonderful place to visit.
