“A very nice experiment”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

I had never gone to a tennis camp, but this one sounded particularly attractive both for the place and the bubbly personality of Jorge, an excellent tennis player whom I knew from Virginia. I would say that the trip exceeded all my expectations, which were for "unlimited" tennis, limited if anything by how much the body would be able to afford in a day of intense running under the local equatorial sun.
Jorge was an exceptional host, always ready to accomodate our schedules, with many suggestions on possible adventure trips to the sorrounding area of forests and volcanoes, a very pleasant companion who stayed with us sometime the whole day. I am amazed at his stamina for playing 4 or 5 or 6 hours of tennis in a day !
This is a vacation for people who love nature and sports. The accomodation I stayed was in a luxury resort, the Westin, very beautiful and with excellent service plus all other frills that come with this type of all inclusive arrangement. But the real difference for me was in the great time spent on the tennis courts.
A great, great week in a lovely place, surely worth the long journey to reach the Liberia airport and the drive up to the resosrt with the car Jorge sent to pick us up. Very nice service, easy to arrive and easy to depart.
By the way, the local airport is brand new, just a few months old, very efficient and with an excellent italian restaurant inside ! And the local people could not be more pleasant, giving really the true meaning to their living motto "puravida" roughly translated as "learn how to enjoy life !"
Thanks Jorge for a very good time !

“Terrific accomodations, great and varied food, as much tennis as you want, and fascinating side trip to live volcano.”

Each couple has their own beautiful suite with a balcony. There are about eight great restaurants to select from, including an international buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Latin, Asian Fusion, Italian, and French restaurants for dinner. The service is terrific, from the food servers to the people who clean the rooms. We took a golf cart tour of the resort and saw a Great Egret, Great Blue Heron, Roseate Spoonbill, Orange-chinned parakeet, and huge iguanas among others. We also hiked in a park with a live volcano and spent the afternoon and dinner at a fabulous hot springs spa overlooking the volcano. There are only four tennis courts but our group of four had the courts to ourselves. We played every day for about two hours, except for the day when we took the volcano trip. We could have played as much as we wanted and the instruction was excellent and geared to each individual's needs.
