Booked my son in for the week group coaching while on holiday. Very impressed. Kids are assessed and grouped according to ability. The coach was very professional and had a great rapport with the children. Nice coffee shop to while away the morning watching the coaching. Not a huge selection on the menu but it's ideal for killing an hour.... More

Have just comeback from a tennis holiday through 5startennis.com at Vale Do Lobo and found the group coaching excellent and friendly, there were 12 of us in the group, 6 Men and 6 Ladies split into 2 groups with their respective coaches. Accomodation in 2 bed apartment was good but too isolated from anywhere due to the size of the... More

This was my third trip to Vale do Lobo and this time I was with 6 other tennis playing friends. The Academy once again helped us with coaching for an odd number. We were thrilled to once again benefit from Nunu's excellent coaching & to meet Ricardo, who was equally brilliant at identifying areas we needed to work on. The... More

We went on a tennis holiday, staying in apartments booked through 5star. Transfers and coaching were excellent.Apartment was adequate, but needed refurb. Some were a lot better than others. It was along walk to restaurants and the supermarket and we could not use the resort bus, as owners had not subscribed to it. The restaurants in Vale do Lobo are... More

Our first time visiting the tennis academy and what a pleasant one it was! We were staying in a villa directly opposite the courts and so decided to book a game for the four of us. The woman on reception couldn't have been more pleasant or more helpful and this set us up for a good game (even though we... More

It is excellent for both playing tennis and as a spectator however, we did not play tennis. Our villa had a small swimming pool however, we chose to swim here once. It is 5Euros per person however, you get... More

I have been visiting Vale do Lobo Tennis for over 10 years. Eurico the main coach is fantastic and helped me by getting me a temporary summer job with them as a teenager. I highly reccomend the place for anyone who is looking for a tennis holiday be that as a family or school.

From all the academies that I've played, including IMG in Florida, Vale do Lobo is my favorite by far. Food at the resort is e pensive but beach bars such as Izzys just off resort were good value and food very good. Cant wait to return next year !
