Great place with fantastic tennis facilities, gym and fantastic food! After a few days of training, booked a full body massage for 90 minutes. What a great experience. This lady has very strong but at the same time soft hands, capable to put every muscle in its place. You feel relaxed and complete regenerated after the massage. Consequently ready for... More

After a break of 5 years we came back for our sunshine and tennis before winter! Carla was welcoming at reception and Eurico came straight up and welcomed us back. The coaching as ever was full on and stretched all of us (and we play a lot of tennis at home). Skills were re vamped and every tendon stretched. My... More

This is a proper high quality tennis academy and is located only moments from Vale do Lobo centre. Carla in reception is absolutely wonderful and always ready to help and assist with anything. She s a real model of customer service. The only thing that let's the place down slightly is the bar staff that seems to be always grumpy... More

A shining example of why captive markets don't work. The tennis facilities at Vale do Lobo may well be adequate (although, it has to be said, pretty poor value), but the customer service (with the honourable exception of Carla on Reception) is so patronising & unconcerned that it is virtually aggressive; & the wellness treatments, specifically the massage, are actually...

This has been our 3rd successive year at Vale de Lobo Tennis Academy and it has again been a great experience. We always go over the Easter period because some of our group of 6 ladies are teachers so are limited to school holidays. We have also rented the same villa which is great as it overlooks the tennis courts... More

The academy was great to spend our tennis week, great food, very flexible, fantastic pool, and changing areas. They made me feel very at home at comfortable. Would love to go back.

Excellent programme that's taught me a lot this week - and I've had a lot of other experiences of tennis camps. This is the best so far. Nearing the end of the week, I'm now playing some of my best tennis thanks to all the great tips and drills. It was also great to have a chance to try Padel... More
