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.
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.
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!
For a tennis addicted single woman looking for a safe, intimate place to stay over the Christmas holiday I couldn't have dreamed for anything better. John and Rosa are the perfect hosts.
