Excellent programme that's taught me a lot this week - and I've had a lot of other experiences of tennis camps. This is the best so far. Nearing the end of the week, I'm now playing some of my best tennis thanks to all the great tips and drills. It was also great to have a chance to try Padel... More

We loved the tennis academy facilities and would recommend highly - friendly and very experienced coaches, high quality facilities. The reception team are super , and so helpful. The only downside is the cafe, which is why I didn't give 5 stars - there is not much on the menu, it's is mainly burgers etc and it definitely needs a... More

We've been twice in week already with the kids. Not much choice but then you don't need a lot when treating the kids to some unhealthy snacks. Burgers are good (and large), chips are crispy and chicken nuggets - look like... Chicken nuggets. Toasted sandwich was probably the lightest item they sell. Expect to pay 30 euro for 4 meals...

fine for a short break from the pool for sandwiches and nuggets and chips, but slightly over priced (although expected in the resort) and not particularly pleasing to the eye. Large portions

Really excellent tennis coaching. I have known this place for 30+ years! originally as Roger Taylor, then David Lloyd, now unbranded, but still absolutely excellent for children's tennis coaching. I'll admit that Roger Taylor was an absolutely phenomenal coach, and a true gentleman to boot. I have many great memories of learning here under him in the 1980s. Time moves... More

Had a really good time here - great facilities, friendly staff and welcoming. Only thing I would say is the cafe menu could do with an upgrade as it was pretty uninspiring.
