Our first tennis holiday and our October special offer gave us a free 10 hour tennis academy along with 7 nights in the Hotel Principe Felipe. Good value until we arrived - €3 per 50cl bottle of water is just overpriced and I just don't understand hotels offering free wifi poolside but charging though the nose elsewhere.
Facilities were good with a great pool area, large rooms with all standard amenities as well as some nice touches (2 sinks, bath side candles, enough white towels for 10). Laundry service (a must on a tennis holiday!) was good but again not cheap. Most hotel staff were friendly although we felt a little unloved at times.
Breakfast was excellent but dinner disappointing and very expensive. Poolside lunches were average and, you've guessed it, overpriced. However, there are many other food options around the resort and La Finca is definitely a far better fine dining option than Amapola in the hotel itself. Try Asia also for some great cocktails and Thai curries.
The adult tennis academy was well worth it. There was graded coaching each morning for 2 hours with optional events each afternoon (a slightly expensive extra). Coaches were all extremely friendly, talented and had perfect English (thanks Angel!). Days ended with complimentary sangria, beer and a prize giving. If you're booking courts at other times, make sure you mention you're part of the Academy or you'll get charged full price of €24 per hour!
We will be back but next time will probably book a villa or apartment directly for the extra freedom and because the hotel is just not great value for money.
