First time here and what a pleasure. Perfectly positioned for the beach being up a set of stairs which leads to the famous Capuccino bar/restaurant. The staff wear red so a little like being on a Virgin plane and they have a quaint way of touching their heart when they pass you. I can honestly say we had excellent service...

I had 16 tennis lessons with Ernesto or his assistant Orlando Barcia. Both coaches are excellent, very professional and really helped me to improve my game. They concentrated on the areas that really needed improving (my forehand in particular). Ernesto also gave me valuable advice on the importance of breathing and diet. I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson.
