    Has anyone been there for vacation? If so, I'd like to know about your experience. My wife amd I are going there in May, amd it's supposed to be one of the best tennis spots in the Caribbean.

    Don't know, but check on the condition of the place before you go. Hurricane Sandy is bearing down on the island at this moment, and some of these resorts can take a beating -- some on St. Martin were so damaged by a hurricane some years ago that it was years before they reopened.

    It's in Negril, on the west side of the island. My wife and I have our fingers crossed that it will be spared damage. Looks like they have 5 clay courts, 5 hard courts, and free tennis lessons. Should be good times, assuming it gets spared significant damage.

    Been there. It's nice but not plush. Great for folks more concerned with eating healthy, working out , water sports and racquet sports.

    Sounds great. How is the instruction? We've stayed at Couples Negril before, so we kind of know what to expect, but I am definitely looking forward to some lessons as well.

    Are we still talking about racquet sports, or is this a swingers club?

    We are talking about tennis instruction. Would love it if we could stay on subject, people.

    It could happen, but it is very rare.

    Sorry, didn't take any instruction there. I don't recall the courts being very busy, but its been awhile since I've been there. I'd just call them and talk to one of the pros if you don't get any useful info here.
