I had the pleasure of staying at fabulous Pine Cliffs for the first time last month with my 12 year old daughter, and with my friend Miranda and her two children. We were keen to make tennis the main feature of our 5 day trip. I was so impressed with your Academy and the coaches. Gonzalo was so helpful in getting the right coaches for the children and he coached myself and Miranda for a few lessons too. My tennis and my daughter’s tennis improved more in those few days than in many years of coaching in Edinburgh. I’ve been to La Manga several times but the feel of your Academy and the professionalism from Gonzalo and his team at Pinecliffs was exceptional. He was also very encouraging to our children when he saw them play in the weekly tournament. My daughter Lulu’s confidence has soared and she now loves playing tennis and has already been asked to play for the first team at school after the holiday.

To whom it may concern
I’m on holiday here in pine cliffs. I’m a tennis coach from Ireland and have children on the Irish national squad. I have to let you know how impressed I am with the tennis team here. I have played every day and done lessons.
Your director Goncalo is unreal. He goes out of his way for the players and the way he looks out for his staff is so positive. I have worked with directors and have had some very good experiences, what I see here though is a very positive environment led by a very positive man. All his coaches are doing an amazing job at the academy, the tennis is fun but yet for me who wants good hitting and fun they have raised the bar.
This has made my holiday. Whilst the resort is fantastic it’s the Tennis that has kept me smiling for the last two weeks.
A big thanks to all the team.

For the attention of Annabel Croft
I’m taking time from organising my club tennis summer camps to congratulate you on the high standard of the coaching at the Annabel Croft tennis academy this summer . Having just spent several weeks at Pine Cliffs, my family and I had the great pleasure of enjoying the benefits of tennis coaching programme under the direction of Gonçalo .
Gonçalo coached myself and Alina coached three of my adult children . We were all so impressed by the professional manner , playing level , discipline and encouragement of both coaches .
As stated before, we worked directly with only two of the coaches , but I noted while we were at the courts and while passing the courts during the day the high level of organisation and ability and friendliness of the entire team of coaches and this was a pleasure to see.
I have been a visitor to Pinecliffs over the past 15 years and much as the level of tennis was always reasonable this year is at a completely different level .
The fact that we had lessons most days for the weeks, was the testament of the high standard of coaching . This is not something we would do lightly as we have access to many high standard coaches here at home in Northern Ireland .
Until next year, or with luck, maybe before....,
