I stayed here with my husband and some friends and can say without a doubt we all had the best time! Debbie and hear team are all so polite and welcoming.... dogs included 🐶 The cabins and facilities are very clean and Jordan is a fantastic instructor with the water-sports. This is a really special place, unspoiled by modern life..... we will be going back here for years to come!

Xtreme Gene We were welcomed by Debbie and Mat during what was a stressful time for us, due to the troubles of covid. Debbie was so reassuring before our arrival, explaining all the measures they had taken to protect guests. We noticed it immediately on arrival. Xtreme Gene stands out from other ski/wake/surf resorts with its Friendly social atmosphere - you feel like you want to stick around after your sets to find out what else is going on: BBQs, sunsets on the lake, drinks, chat and laughter with the Xtreme team who are one big happy family. You leave feeling part of it. Baby Beatrix had the best time and the venue is well catered for people with children big/small/adult size! :) Excellent coaching - Spending nights here we got to know the coaches. 1on1 tuition and they really take interest in wanting us to progress. Tarek was our coach, direct talking, clear and such a distinctive voice... You can hear him on the other side of the lake... And the lake is massive!! Tarek really appreciated our eagerness to learn and the results from his tuition showed. I think the same standards are shared with all the coaches. These guys speak various languages including Spanish French English (Jordan's English is a bit iffy... HAHA) etc... So can accommodate anyone wishing to learn. Just buy them a drink afterwards and you'll be well looked after! Relaxed environment - Unlike other ski/wake/surf schools the fun begins at the lake and only ends when you leave. Club house which always has people to welcome you and deliver your favourite beverage after sets. A bar fitted with water mist system for those hot moments in the day, overlooking the lake to watch riders AMD/or the sunset. The sunset is better viewed from the Infiniti pool with a drink nearby! There are a number of air conditioned cabins on site, ours with two double bedrooms and fridge. Excellent for walking up with a view to the beautiful countryside. Xtreme Gene is easily accessible, clean and nothing is ever too much trouble for the Xtreme Team. A special thank you to Derek (Terek!) Debbie Mat Lillie Alan & Zuzi Jason Marcus Guti & The Masseuse who we were talking about rock music with whilst enjoying an amazing massage... Sorry I didn't catch your name! We look forward to seeing you all again soon. Till then we wish all our new friends well wishes.... Until next time Beatrix Hayley Val and Paul xx

Xtreme Gene is freaking amazing - stop reading and just go now!!!! ... In case you didn't listen and are still reading here is our story I found this place when looking to buy a wakeboard. Thought this place looks cool and it's only 2 hours away so we'll give it a try. My wife hates water and we have 3 small kids (6, 9, 11) with no water ski or wake boarding experience so I only booked for 3 nights thinking that should give me enough time to enjoy. We all loved it so much we ended up staying 8 nights, my wife now loves the lake and is wakeboarding!!! My youngest is skiing and my two other children are also wakeboarding and are learning to jump off the wake. Every detail about this place is just awesome. The instruction world class, the food is healthy and delicious, the lake itself is breathtaking, the cabins are clean and comfortable, but the people were the best. We went looking for a little getaway and came home with heavy hearts as if we had just left a family reunion. Already booked our next trip and can't wait to get back.

Amazing all round! From the excellent wakeboard coaching to the warm friendly atmosphere. If boarding and skiing is your thing (or you just want a relaxing break) this is a must for you! We are relative beginners but we where made to feel like pros, and our boarding came on leaps and bounds. Thank you, and we love you Nino 😍. Matt and Debbie (and of course all the four legged friends) are just fabulous hosts. Kev and Shams xx

This place is just heaven. I travelled alone to stay 5 days at xtreme, as a complete water sports novice. The place has everything you could want and need. It offers beautiful scenery along with xtreme fun and even better staff. I loved every minute of my time there and can't thank Jordan enough for all the great lessons he provided. He made me feel completely comfortable, played really good music (on the boat) and gave knowledgeable advice. It was a real pleasure to have stayed here and experience all of the wonderful sports they have to offer.
