So this morning we started packing and discovered that our old "bubble", the storage carrier that goes on top of the van is done. Once packed it wouldn't close.

So Paula and I dashed off to Sears and at 4:30 this afternoon we finally cast off. It ...

Eight days after leaving home, we felt our summer trip was finally underway as we pointed our RV north ...

    Play hard, relax hard

    from

    Saddlebrook is a great resort. The tennis program can be hard but fun. I consider myself an advanced player and still came home with plenty to work on. When it's time to rest we had a nice 2 bedroom with suite and enough amenities. The pool is fantastic and the staff attentive. Good weather doesn't hurt either.

    I've been to several tennis resorts but will probably settle on Saddlebrook as the place to go from now on. It may be slightly more expensive than some but well worth it.

    I adore Saddlebrook

    from

    I absolutely adore Saddlebrook Resort! I've been in their Junior Tennis Program for two summers now, and I go back every summer for about a month, because I absolutely love it. The atmosphere and the people are absolutely wonderful, and you mature and learn so much from being around your peers from all over the globe! Besides the social aspect, my parents and I both think the tennis is awesome! The instruction is terrific and very helpful and the coaches are great. The level of intensity is very high, and you definately find players of your own level. Every year I return home, my mom is just amazed at how much I have gotten better, and that definately reflects in my matches and my rankings. And every year I always want to go back so bad, missing all my great friends and my great summer days! It's definately an awesome experience for any age in an extremely beautiful place! Go ahead, don't hesitate to try it!

    A word of caution

    from

    Though the Saddlebrook Resort is a large and beautiful resort, a word of caution to visitors: be sure to clarify the nightly rates, in writing, prior to a stay there. We discovered recently that a rate quoted to us by phone (just prior to arriving in the area) was then changed to a rack rate upon check out (and further confused by a "credit" that appeared on our bill) and no amount of disputing the rate quoted to us would convince the management to honor it. The room we were given in no way justified the $399 rack rate we ended up having to pay in the end: consumer beware.

    A few reservations but in general we liked it....

    from

    First of all, my 13 year-old daughter loved it. She was in a junior tennis clinic for 4 days and couldn't have been happier. The restaurants, though a bit pricey, were first-rate. I didn't play golf but the 2 courses looked beautiful. Now for my reservations. The pool was very nice but if you didn't get there early in the day it was very hard to find an available lounge chair. I found that people who went golfing during the morning and early afternoon would place towels, books and sandals on lounge chairs, thus in effect reserving them and depriving other people of there use. Management was aware of this practice but seemed resigned to the situation. The tennis program was run in a slightly chaotic fashion. Some clinics started as early as 7:00 in the morning and ended as late as 6:00 , depending on how crowded they were. The junior players weren't always evaluated properly; my daughter wasted two days by being placed in a group with players of lesser ability. She had fun but didn't learn much on those days. There was also a 2 hour break beween the morning and afternoon sessions. It would have been nice if they had a true all-day program including lunch so the parents could take off for the day if they so desired. Having said all this, I would go back to Saddlebrook. The grounds are lovely, the staff is friendly, and though it took a few days my daughter was eventually placed with the right tennis group and got a lot out of it.

    Saddlebrook is amazing

    from

    I stayed at Saddlebrook for 3 weeks over the summer and i enjoyed every minute. The tennis, pool, and general resort was amazing. It doesnt matter what cluster you stay in because there is always something to do nearby.

    Great week

    from

    We took our two children to Saddlebrook for a week of tennis camp and golf for the adults. Had a great time. Great tennis instruction.

    However, we had to change rooms after one day. Request a top floor! The noise (running upstairs) from the condo above us was unbelievable! The golf was great, and the pool was nice. Great weather in April. We will return.

    Great getaway

    from

    This was a great weekend away for us. If you're not into the beach scene, Saddlebrook works very well. The spa is terrific, the staff is very attentive, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. My wife and I didn't even play golf or tennis, even though the courses and courts appeared to be in good shape. We rode bikes, went roller blading, and just relaxed our minds. I would definitely go back.

    Excellent staff and facilities

    from

    A great family resort for swimming, golf, tennis and eating. Excellent, attentive staff; great teachers for both golf and tennis. The 2 golf courses and tennis courts are beautifully maintained. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and private, although not with the most comfortable beds or furniture. The two restaurants are excellent. Not inexpensive, but a good value. The grounds are beautiful and expansive - expect to do a lot of walking to and from your room and to use the various facilities. The pool is gorgeous and heated, although in need of a bit of a thorough cleaning and restoring. All in all, we'll come back.

    Enjoyed our stay

    from

    We have stayed twice at Saddlebrook with our kids and both weeks we have had a terrific time. The tennis instruction is action packed and the pool beautiful. We were fortunate to stay in a Cluster 3 condo close to everything. The nice weather helped too.

    A Sensational Travel Destination

    from

    This is the ultimate place to go for any rough and tough tennis player or golfer. Or if you just want to relax and be papered, it's the place to be for any vacation or getaway. Great food, great service, great memroies!
