We spent a glorious vacation at El Palmar Beach & Tennis Resort. As avid tennis players, we knew that we would get the chance to play each day on the clay courts in Cihuatlan surrounded by banana groves and vines of passion fruit. What we did not expect was the warm friendship John, Rosa and Katherine provided.
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!
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!
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.
This is a great B&B style place in the Villa Olbergon, San Patricio, Melaque part of Mexico about a half hour north of the Manzanillo airport. Tennis everyday and lots of time to absorb Mexico.
