The tennis center at Palmas del Mar is not well run. Straight to the point... I paid $75 for a lesson with one of the pros. That was early in the morning when the entire club was empty. Nonetheless, we were placed in a hardcourt with big and deep cracks that still had water on the surface due to the rain accumulated during the night. Let me make it clear: there were dry tennis courts in great shape. Many, in fact. I requested a court change to find the most amazing display of bureaucracy and intransigence. It happened that the courts in good shape cannot be used for lessons, so you're left paying $75 for a lesson with a pro in a court that reminded me of those in downtown DC just after the end of winter. The person who presented herself as the manager, a young woman in her late 20's, refused to make any effort to make the change. I ended up in a heated discussion with her, only to be met later on the day by the person who also claimed to be the manager, who instead of apologizing to me demanded that I aplogized myself with the woman! None of them was to blame... it' was "the company with their rules". I wonder what they are managing, if they cannot make small and easy decisions. I don't know what they are trying to do. They have a pro, so show him! But this is probably the story of a club that it's trying to appeal to the elite (therefore tennis teachers and non members do not get to play in the best courts), and in the process they are going to repeat all the bad steps that led them to their previous bankruptcy. I'm okay with privileges for the members, but for God's sake, the whole place was empty!! With me, they lost a first time customer. Hardly a good way to go over a difficult financial history.
