This is my third year in a row at Saddlebrook. My first year was great, second year had some issues, and this year was pretty good. Overall, it’s a great place to really get steeped in tennis, esp. versus Newcombe Ranch or Amelia Island. I can’t say if I’ll be back again though

My experience at the tennis resort exceeded my expectations! The tennis instructor Will D. Rhame was not only extremely knowledgeable, but kept the session fun and with a very positive energy! It was absolutely amazing! Will definitely come back!

I booked a two day stay at Saddlebrook for the tennis camps and wasn't sure what to expect. I arrived early that morning and mistakenly thought I could sign up on the spot. I was informed that classes were booked for the entire week so needless to say I was thoroughly dejected.

It is beautiful outside with lots of beautiful birds and wildlife. The different walking/running trails are very nice and the Palmer golf course is great. The other course needs lots of work. The hotel is in dire need of refurbishing. There is no poolside service or water

Thank you for your kind review, We’re glad that you enjoyed your time here with us and thank you for choosing Saddlebrook as part of lodging for your convention. We apologized for the wait time at the pool area, it’s customary that there may be a wait time as the resort was at full occupancy. We take pride and efforts to improve our timely manner and efficiency and with so many different events happening, we are strategically working towards our effort to accommodate every single Guest and keep the wait time to at least 30 minutes. As spring break is ending soon, you are welcome to return at an easier pace when we can provide service to you in a timely manner. For reservation details, feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience at 813-907-4454. We are also in middle of renovations, come and take advantage of what’s to offer and check out our golf specials packages as you also enjoyed the course as well.

Currently staying at Saddlebrook for a conference, so not here by choice. All the reviews below about outdated, musty-smelling rooms are true. And the parking situation and lack of dining options for a “resort property” are astounding. But the worst part is the noise.

John S, Thank you for your feedback regarding your experience, it looks like you weren’t provided with adequate information regarding Saddlebrook amenities and options. Saddlebrook offers Valet parking to all Guest in order to remain car free and to have the ability to make it a walking village as we are. We do have other options for you to have the ability to park your car right in front of your room as well. You mentioned the lack of dining options, we have several dining options at your disposal. We provide breakfast lunch and dinner daily at our TD’s Sports Bar, breakfast at our Coffee bar (grab and go) and also dinner at our award winning dining option restaurant, the Dempsey’s Steakhouse. You can also call for room service 24 hours a day at your leisure as most other resort/hotels do not have that ability. Saddlebrook Resort is located in a well growth population area, so many different dining options off property as well if you’re looking for other options. It seemed you visited us at an exciting time, and very busy as well, which is spring break. We apologized for the noise disruption from the tennis camps. We can assure you that it was not our intentions of doing so. Lastly, I would like to know what room you stayed in, we take our room conditions seriously and would like to address any situation that comes our way. You’re welcome to return at a more calm time when business allows us to. For reservation details, contact me at 813-907-4454

Hello. Yes, you can definitely do some days full and some days half. The program is quite intensive so if you need a break the second day we could assist you. Although their are staffing considerations, so we would appreciate as much notice as possible.

Hi, The suites do feature utensils, pots and pans - some have ovens, but most have cook tops. The suites do not have grills and they are not allowed to be brought in. Thanks and best regards,
