“Great family resort”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My family recently spent two nights and three days at this beautiful golf and tennis resort. It was a pleasure, starting with the woman who took our reservation, to the valet who met us upon our arrival...we rented two two bedroom suites, and they were perfectly situated near the amazing pool, where my daughters and grandchildren spent most of our time. My husband and sons- in-law played golf on the beautifully groomed golf courses and loved every minute...there was a dj at the pool every day playing music and the activities for the kids were aplenty! We enjoyed a wine and cheese tasting, and the movies at the pool in the evening were great family oriented movies...I can't say enough about this special place, and I plan to return soon...it's a great get away for my family with something for everyone...tennis courts are out of this world, and the spa is pricey but awesome!

Room Tip: We stayed in cluster 2, which is near the pool...it had a beautiful view of one of the golf courses...

The rooms are all suites and very large, even the one bedrooms. Very extensive facilities so even though there were lots of families it didn't feel crowded. Very clean and well run, love the place and booked again this year for 2013/14.

We looked for a place to stay between the airport in Tampa and our daughter's college - someplace that we could relax by the pool, have a comfortable room and dine on site. This is the place.

We checked in and were immediately impressed with Lois, the reservations manager, who was able to change our room so we were closer to the pool. She also called us by name for the duration of our stay, which made us feel very welcome.

The food is very good, whether it's the breakfast buffet with made to order eggs Benedict and fresh squeezed oj, lunch poolside or dinner at the sports bar or steakhouse. We really never had a bad meal.

Most of our time was spent at the huge free form superpool, and special mention goes out to Jill & Sarah, who always greeted us with a smile and really made our stay memorable. They are fantastic employees who clearly took pride in the resort and its reputation. They were also the ones that told us that there were gators and snakes on site when we rented our fishing equipment (yes we ended up seeing both)!

Finally, the rooms were well maintained, there were nice granite tops in the bathrooms (public bathrooms were very nice and very clean too), and it was nice being able to sit outside on the lanai for coffee in the morning (Keurig's in the room). A big golf and tennis resort as well. We will be back.

We went back for the 4th time for the Adult and Junior tennis programs. The instructors are all very good and Howard Moore does a great job overseeing both junior and adult tennis. As for the adult program, the clay courts get a little ground up with all the rain the summer and heavy use but they do a pretty good job of fixing them up overnight. I do wish they used video as that can also be helpful to see whats going on with your strokes.

The grounds are really beautiful and the pool is fanatastic. The condos could use new bathrooms, kitchens and carpet, but they are comfortable and functional. For a family, the units with a fridge and oven/microwave are great, there is a Publix very near the resort. We will keep coming back.

This is a top notch program for Junior Tennis, with some of best instructors we've ever encountered! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating including theTennis Program Director Howard Moore who took very good care of us throughout our stay. I also have to mention several instructors Alvaro, Scott, Robin, Sean and others that took additional time and truly cared about helping my daughter improve!
Our two bedroom suite was perfect for one week stay, with full kitchen and separate living/dining room. The laundry room was also a huge perk! We enjoyed all the dining available as well as the great pool!
We will definitely be back!

I have a daughter with autism and they were so accommodating. From the wonderful people in reservations(Lisa & her supervisor) all the way through to checking out! Excellent room service, full kitchens available for special diets. Already made another reservation, can't wait to get back! Thank you Saddlebrook Resort Tampa!!!

We came for a Jr. Tennis program. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and stayed one week. Ours was near the pool and in good condition. The cleaning staff on day 3 and 4 were horrible. We had to have them come back and give them directions in simple cleaning, while they did it. They didn't vacuum, wipe any counter down, pick up garbage or change the sheets, even with the 3rd-day change me sign placed on. I did make a complaint the first day to the front desk and the second day the cleaner was just as bad if not worse. The food at the Steak House is very expensive and horrible. The salad bar, is $21 and not fresh and not much to it. Very poor quality. The breakfast buffet does not compare to chain hotels at all. The tennis for Jr.'s is intense. Good program, but an instructor seemed to push for privates to pad his pocket instead of out of the interest in guiding my child. The weekly program seemed to fizzle out and there was no closure. No one met with us to conclude the week training and say "good bye" "here is the progress made" seemed different than all the other sports camps we've attended considering it rates itself as the top.
The Jr. golf program is not as high standard as the tennis yet, but the young local pro my child had for a lesson was wonderful and spiked her interest more in the sport. Good clothes in the Golf Pro shop and very friendly people! I couldn't say the same about the tennis pro shop.
The grounds staff and workers around are very friendly and wonderful. The resort is a bit dated and the fitness center is not the best for a training facility. The grounds are beautiful and green. Many ponds would look better if they cleaned them more often and took out the scum and old tennis balls that have mold on them. (Doesn't look cared for) I'd advise to rent a car as roads are easy to use and you can get food for your fridge, go to restaurants and malls nearby. We may or may not come back. It is the connection and relationship your child makes with instructors at training camps that inspire them to return. Don't know if we made that here.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in cluster 3 in front of the pool. Upstairs is good, you don't hear the people dow...
