How to Get There
Spent one nite at Saddlebrook in a hotel room in Cluster 2. The buildings are from the late 70s/early 80s. From the carpet in my room (and what I heard from others in our group as well) the carpets are all quite worn so be aware and furnishings a bit tired.. Bath was ok, nice shower, bedding was good, TV is OK. Only odd thing is that if you are on first floor you hear EVERY creak in the floor as someone walks upstairs. Ate at Dempseys, food was very good. All parking is Valet for the resort.
Went with a group of women to play tennis. Enjoyed our long weekend very much and would highly recommend. We shared a 2-bedroom condo. Here is a quick recap on what's available and some tips :
In the room : fully equipped kitchen, hair dryers and toiletries (shampoo, lotion, body wash), Keurig coffee machine with coffee and tea pods, towels
Food: sports bar, pool bar and a more upscale restaurant open most of the time; food was pretty good; there is a Publix 5 minutes down the street
Tennis: got 3 hours in the morning 8am-11am, and 2 hours in the afternoon 1pm-3pm. Got rained out one afternoon but asked for a 1/2 hour make up the following day. However, you may want to check, they should give credit or refund if you miss too much.
Great instruction all 3 days with Coach Will - very useful tips and he make it really fun!
* bring additional Keurig pods if you like certain kind of coffee
* get drinks and snacks at a grocery store, resort is pretty expensive
* book room on the 2nd floor; 1st floor gets all the noise from the top (there are only 2 floors)
* for tennis ask to be in cluster 1 or 3 within walking distance of the courts
* no need to bring towel or water, they provide both on the courts
* renting a car from the airport (Tampa or St Pete) is more economical even if you don't plan to go anywhere... resort charges $15 parking fee
Saddlebrook gets a solid B. Not great, not awful. Tennis was good ... accommodations ok...on site restaurants ... boring. The grounds ... if you like palm trees... are lovely. What else is there to say? While I was there very quiet, few guests,
I host an annual meeting at Saddlebrook every year and each year our guests are excited to come again. The food is great, the staff is SO friendly and you can tell its a family operated property from the attention to detail that you receive from everyone working on property. We host an evening event on the fairway and poolside and the attendees just love it. Alexis Dempsey is by far the best CSM I have ever worked with. The only downside to the property are the guest rooms as they could really use an upgrade. The meeting space has been completely redone and is modern and clean.
"My wife and I showed up for 4 nights and 3 days - including 3 days of adult tennis camp. First time visit. Could not have been happier with the tennis and the instruction. Larger numbers of players each day. We had the same instructor (Will Rhame) for 5 of the six "sessions". We were both very happy with him and he added much to our games(me a 3.5, wife a 4.0). In fact for the first 3 sessions, it was just the 2 of us on a single court with Will. He kept his suggestions simple and did not try to make major changes. "Racquet back, watch the ball". Simple, but easily forgotten. On our last day, we had one player on our court who was not at the same level as other 3, which made it awkard, but was not horrible. The morning stretch with Larry is awesome an something that many adults ignore. Mostly, this was FUN. The entire staff was terrific. A much better experience than some resorts offer with a menu of clinics to sign up for. The tennis was everything we had hoped for and we will return. Howard Moore (the director) even bought us all drinks at the pool one afternoon!! We also were offered a (free) individual video analysis. As for the resort, it is a little tired and in serious need of a face lift. But the room was comfortable, the pool inviting, and the food adequate. Also, there are plenty of options off site for food and night life if one is interested. The poolside bartender was overwhelmed and a second person would be a huge upgrade. We ate breakfast and lunch in our room which saved time, energy, and $. A welcome break in the middle of 5 hours of tennis daily. It is too easy to dwell on the negatives, but our trip was fun, relaxing, and added to our tennis games and enjoyment. If one wants to ensure equal caliber of players for your level, bring a group for even more fun."—J.B., Int., May 2018
