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!
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.
The staff are friendly and efficient and a wonderful doctor with a clinic a couple of blocks away lives onsite. There are free bikes available for touring around and every day a van load of guests is driven to and from four wonderful clay courts in a nearby town. The setup of the complex is secure and altogether El Palmar is simply flipping sweet!
Thank you Fergie for showing me your high level of skill and quiet style of tennis instruction. Your knowledge, patience and support is to be commended. I appreciated your ability to take a skill apart so that others could understand it. The repetition to help skill learning was another bonus. So were the tips to use in training, play and tennis in general. You are a true professional and provide unlimited inspiration to the tennis game.
We've been coming to El Palmar for many years now and it never disappoints. All units on 1st and 2nd floors have kitchen facilities, en suite baths while the 3rd floor has 4 fully equipped apartments. There is a nice pool, and an outdoor patio grill for use by guests. Cleaning service is daily except for Sundays and fresh-baked local bread is delivered to your door daily except Sundays. On many Wednesday evenings, guests are invited to participate in a potluck dinner followed by live music.
