What do you eat and drink to fuel your tennis performance?
As a pro tennis player nutrition is something that has always interested me but is also one of the first questions I get asked when I meet new people and tell them what I do. Optimum nutrition is... read more
I had a very nice holiday with many good tennis lessons. Before I left, answers on my mails were answered quickly.
One tip: ask people if it's okay to share contact information with other participants before the holiday starts. That way people can contact each other about transport, accommodation etcetera.
Thanks for your lovely comments. It was another great week so I am very pleased you enjoyed it. I am also really pleased you mentioned the idea of sharing contact info pre-course as we are launching this service for 2020! All players signing up to the course will be able to 'opt-in' to the course group so that they can arrange things such as travel with other players attending the course.
I thought the coaching was really good- definitely above average. However the hotel was pretty poor. The food at the hotel was average at best. There were a decent selection of salads at the evening meal, but the hot food was not particularly tasty. The breakfast was okay, but could have had actual fresh orange juice (as opposed to the watered down version that was served), and a greater selection of cereals. The room was adequate but very simple and plain. The bed wasn’t particularly comfortable. Staff were nice but too thin on the ground- just one waiter at each meal service- which meant we had to wait a long time for drinks orders to be taken, and for plates to be cleared. We had a break from tennis every day but the hotel was not prepared for this- no coffee, sometimes no staff to take the dinks orders, sometimes no ice.
Overall my recommendation to the owners / management of this hotel would be that it needs some decent investment, and more staff. It’s such a shame as I was looking forward to a bit of luxury, but was disappointed. The tennis, however, was great fun, and thank you to Luiz and Ricardo.
Thank you for your feedback. It is great to receive such lovely compliments about our JMT coaching team. We have emailed you directly regarding the dinner at the hotel. JMT only sells B&B at the Luz Bay Hotel as we would always recommend that our clients enjoy the lovely restaurants that are in and around Luz. Our local coaches are always happy to give recommendations.
After our email discussions, we understand that you purchased the meals at a discounted rate directly from the hotel on arrival (so not part of the JMT package). This was not part of our package that we sold. It is a real shame that the hotel evening meals are not up to scratch. We have raised this several times with the management but is not something that has been sorted out. There are many reasons for this but for the moment we suggest clients do not buy the evening meals.
We love feedback and even though it was not us that sold these meals we will still take learnings from it. We have now added text into our client communications that suggests clients liaise with our coaches (as most already do) for local restaurant recommendations.
