We spent a glorious vacation at El Palmar Beach & Tennis Resort. As avid tennis players, we knew that we would get the chance to play each day on the clay courts in Cihuatlan surrounded by banana groves and vines of passion fruit. What we did not expect was the warm friendship John, Rosa and Katherine provided.
For a tennis addicted single woman looking for a safe, intimate place to stay over the Christmas holiday I couldn't have dreamed for anything better. John and Rosa are the perfect hosts.
We flew into Puerta Villarta, rented a car, and enjoyed the drive to melaque. We found plenty of good places to eat, and enjoyed the lovely beach and the morning tennis. We loved our spacious and beautiful Suite; the rooms were clean and spacious, the furniture comfortable, and the bed divine. The weather was great, and we will definitely be back.
My husband and I were looking for tennis lessons and partners in a beach location and found this little gem of a hotel in Melaque just a few yards off the beach. We had the most wonderful 9 days and because of the intimate nature of the hotel and the shared tennis experience for those who were playing.
Locals are friendly, helpful and honest, so it's safe to walk the streets day or night. What a wonderful setting for tennis - I love playing on those red-clay courts! My wife was thrilled with the beautiful accommodation.
