    Great option for a girls’ trip where you can play a lot of tennis with excellent skilled pros, but then also have enough to do on your time – wine tasting, spa, pool, fitness center and outdoor space to enjoy, different activities on property.

    I really enjoyed the stay in the resort. Our coaches Alex and Mary are very solid skilled and super nice. They asked what we need before, listened during the clinics, and provided feedback. I really enjoy the semi private clinics on the last day when my other group members left to catch their flight. I got a lot of nice feedback.

  • Avatar DF

    It was a wonderful experience, the pros were wonderful and the instruction and clinics were outstanding!

  • Avatar RS

    The camp was truly outstanding. The coaches were exceptional, providing expert guidance and creating a fun supportive environment. The facilities were top-notch, with well-maintained courts and a fantastic box at the tennis for an incredible viewing experience. I highly recommend this camp for anyone looking to improve their skills and enjoy a memorable tennis getaway.

    I would say it’s a nice resort but there was an issue when we asked to extend our stay. It was approved and then communication was somehow lost and we were locked out of our room and told to leave. Front desk was less than friendly or accommodating. I think her name was Ashley. Katie our trip director took great care of us. The rooms are old and outdated. Very stuffy. The restaurants did not cater to all diets. Not much if any vegan options. Disappointing for a CA resort

    The Cliff Drysdale Indian Wells camp was amazing!! The staff was excellent and the accommodations were great. 10/10

  • Avatar RW

    The tennis pros were amazing, the clinics were fun but really helped my doubles game. The private lessons were also great due to the flexibility. I was asked what I wanted to work on and my wish was granted enthusiastically l!!!

    Strengths: great weather, excellent facilities and knowledgeable coaching staff. Good opportunity to meet other players. Weaknesses: food on site is ok, but nothing too exciting and the resort is a bit of a drive from Palm Springs/Desert for a change of scenery

  • Avatar AB

    The hotel was pretty dated and musty.

  • Avatar MB

    We loved our experience at Indian Wells with the Cliff Drysdale tennis camp. Joe, LuLu and Luke were energetic, knowledgeable and fun. We learned a lot. They always took extra time to hit with us and they were all genuinely a real pleasure to be around. Going to the tournament at Indian Wells and watching all day from the Suite with the whole crew was so much fun and we would recommend doing more tournament trips like this. We loved that there was a group outing for dinner too where we got to know everyone more. I think the only weakness was the food quality at the group dinner at La Spiga. Also the Omni was a great location near the tournament and had great courts but the accommodations are not as luxurious as I would expect.

  • Avatar WS

    This was my favorite trip with Cliff Drysdale and one of my favorite vacations ever! The Staff was amazing and the trip programs were outstanding. I would prefer a nicer resort (for ex., La Quinta) as the Omni is a little dated and not very convenient to Indian Wells.

    Tennis with the Stars was one of the very best vacation experiences I have ever had! California is gorgeous! Thank you to all of the positive and extremely talented young coaches who ran the programme! BIG HEARTS!

    Fantastic place to visit and enjoy a good time and great tennis with friends. Love to come back.

    The group Tennis clinics were exceptional. The instruction is first class. They keep it moving, interesting, and the drills are a blast. I’ve been there two years in a row and I’m going back again next year. The resort also has a lot to offer. Fitness center, golf, swimming, good restaurants. I highly recommend this resort and tennis experience.

    Loved our ladies tennis camp with Vicente and his team! I gained some great tips and look forward to coming back again soon! Thank you Vicente!!

  • Avatar KK

    Luana was a fun, high energy coach during out time with you. Very enjoyable!

  • Avatar MS

    I really enjoyed the weekend, from the programming, to the pros, the energy and the group. The wine tasting component was a plus! I would love to come back again. If I had to give some constructive feedback, I’d say the condition of the courts could use some work and the hotel customer service could be a bit better, but that’s just being picky. Overall, it was a great experience, primarily because of the people. Thanks Trevor!!

  • Avatar EP

    My Tennis with the Stars experience was absolutely amazing! Every hour of each day was scheduled with clinics, or events. Making it so pleasant that I didn’t have to think or organize anything. There was also free time given which was just the perfect amount. The staff we had by Cliff Drysdale were so enthusiastic; entertaining and knowledgeable we all just loved them. As soon as the camp was over all I could think is I can’t wait till next year and can I register immediately!

  • Avatar EK

    Gorgeous spot. All the tennis pros were super fun energetic and enthusiastic. They made sure you were satisfied in every way.

  • Avatar LG

    Wife and I attended double boot camp weekend at the Omni Rancho Mirage in February. It was great fun and well organized. The pros are terrific and the facility was perfect for the event. We are better tennis players as a result and will sign up for a future a doubles boot camp.

    Outstanding experience with the Cliff Drysdale tennis clinic and the Indian Wells Open!!! Loved every minute of it. The Omni Resort was a fantastic location.

  • Avatar CW

    This Tennis Camp was one of the best experiences of our lives! Incredible instruction, tons of playing time, and whenever we weren’t playing the staff made sure that we have plenty of food and libations! The two days of main court stadium accommodations were absolutely elite and unforgettable! Pretty sure will be back next year!

  • Avatar DG

    Tennis coaches were exceptional. Very knowledgeable and highly skilled. We will be back next year.

  • Avatar KG

    Our group lessons with Vicente and Lucy were very professional. Their drills, personalized feedback and games were well planned and improved my overall game immensely. I appreciated their hard work and effort to ensure we got the most from each lesson. I hope to have them as coaches again for future visits.

  • Avatar LB

    The pro were fabulous. We loved them. The courts were in very good condition. I wish the pro shop had more selection – for example, I wanted to buy a tennis towel and they had none. Resort rooms were adequate, but needed new carpet, and a few upgrades. Food was good in cafe, but I had breakfast in the restaurant one morning and the food was BAD. I did not eat it. In general, Coachella Valley in general needs to use LESS water.

  • Avatar JB

    The pros were great! Very professional and gave us individual tips. Good drills and kept us moving. 3 hours was enough each day. The courts were really nice. The walk back to the resort was easy.

  • Avatar AL

    Excellent tennis facilities and instruction! It’s very hot in Palm Desert and I went during the shoulder season, so there were still weren’t very many campers. But my lessons with Luciano were excellent–he’s a great teacher–and a great workout as well!

  • Avatar FA

    Honestly the best tennis experience I ever had. Vicente’s program was not only fun I actually learned new stuff even after playing tennis for over 40 years. I thought the 3 hour clinic each day was going to get monotonous. Instead it moved quickly, worked me hard (over 1500 calories burned a day) and was a blast. Can’t wait until we come back next year.

  • Avatar AV

    Tennis camp with Vicente and Luciano was amazing. Very knowledgeable and fun to work with. Thumbs up!

    We loved Galina! She was so attentive, instructional and had amazing energy! I learned so much and I’d definitely do it again! We had a wonderful weekend!

  • Avatar DS

    Galina was high energy and so fun. She and V had some fun creative was to teach different concepts on the courts. Our group of girls loved them. I also got a great workout. All around a terrific two days of clinic. We just wished there was a cute pro shop for us to buy merchandise. Would have loved a cute hat or top to show off at home.

  • Avatar LW

    This was my first girl’s trip for tennis. It surpassed my expectations. Trevor, Robert and Michael were exceptional. I have taken a lot of tennis lessons and I probably learned as much in two days from these two as I have from any over my recreational tennis career. I will be back and I recommend it as a tennis destination. If anyone in the group does not play tennis there are trails, bikes, restaurants, shopping, etc. Everyone will have a great time.

    Beautiful property with impeccable grounds. Tennis facility was great and loved the pros! Limited dining options on property. Too few bar staff at the adult pool. Room was nice but I could hear every word spoken by the ladies in the room next door (not adjoining to my room). Housekeeping was excellent.

    We had a great time!

  • Avatar JH

    Tennis club is awesome. William Thompson is an excellent teaching pro. Learned some great tips in an hour lesson and he arranged a perfect hitting partner. Will had strong social skills and connected with everyone. The courts were pristine and we liked the lighting at night too.

  • Avatar EP

    We were extremely pleased with the camp, particularly the technical level of our instruction from Tom Fey. Tom gave us very constructive instruction and techniques tailored to our existing game. We appreciated especially his technical knowledge and ability to fix our fundamentals. We feel we are playing better thanks to his adjustments and advice. He’s also very personable and patient with our questions. We recognize how challenging holding a camp must be during Covid-19, but overall we felt very safe and comfortable with the Cliff Drysdale Camp experience. We definitely plan to come back to further improve and have fun! Thank you for such a positive experience.

  • Avatar LS

    I attended Camp the week of the Covid 19 outbreak. It was a crazy week with many cancellations and a lot of uncertainty. I think the camp directors did a great job with what they could under extreme circumstances. Camp I’m sure would have been very different under normal circumstances. I give the crew a lot of credit for coming up with what they did under the circumstances they were dealt. What would become a Global Pandemic, campers leaving last minute, bad weather. Kudos to them for keeping us going.

  • Avatar LP

    Resort is stunning with gorgeous views and the tennis camp was one of the best I’ve experienced thus far. The tennis pros from Cliff Drysdale Tennis were exceptional!

    Not withstanding the Indian Wells tournament cancellation just after we arrived….we stayed for our whole trip. The resort, staff and especially the Cliff Drysdale team and tennis coaches at Las Palmas Resort we superb…hands on and available to assist with everything…we cannot wait to go back! Thank you for a great time in the face of CV19.

    Chris and his pros were very helpful and skilled. We got allot out of our instruction. We will be back for sure.

    I thought the tennis drills were wonderful. And we had a great time eating at your steakhouse and the bar. A great time was had by all eight of us. Would definitely do it again.

  • Avatar JV

    Everything related to the tennis experience was amazing. We were slightly disappointed with the food and beverage service at the resort. Examples: booked a cabana in advance (arrived and it wasn’t available for us); no food at the pools; no drink service at the Spa pool after 3 pm; etc. But we had a great time and plan to come back next year!!

  • Avatar AB

    Excellent value and quality tennis instruction. I enjoyed both private tennis lessons and clinics with others. The instructors were all top notch and very friendly.

  • Avatar HP

    Tennis staff & instruction was excellent. Loved the diversity of your tennis staff. The pool service was below average. No one asked if I would like to order drinks or food anytime I was at the spa pool or the adult pool.

  • Avatar JC

    The tennis experience and the setting were incredible. My only disappointment was in the food and beverage service. Our tennis team came together and on day we had planned to enjoy the spa we were told there was no more beverage service at 2PM. We wanted to drink champagne and sit by the pool together after our spa services and that wasn’t an option, nor was anything else around the resort open except for the market. The following day we had a cabana reserved at the adult pool and when we showed up they were closed and had no recollection of us creating a reservation. We ended up having to order “to go” from room service. It just seemed like a running theme that we were at this gorgeous resort but with not a lot of service and hospitality, especially when all we were trying to do is spend money on our mom’s tennis vacation!

  • Avatar WL

    I am revising a review that I wrote in February 2019. After a phone call from Katie Steck of the Cliff Drysdale management company, I believe that they do strive to have the guests experience be memorable. It was refreshing to have a call from them to discuss our overall experience and I believe we had a productive conversation. It is my belief that our experience was a one off, and our group is willing to give the Rancho Las Palmas group a second chance. Thank you Katie and the Cliff Drysdale Management company for making the extra effort to chat about our concerns regarding Rancho Las Palmas and the tennis experience! Well done!!

    Had an amazing time playing tennis the coaches Elliot and Matt were good fun very knowledgeable and gave me lots of useful tips really liked their enthusiasm for their job and this rubbed off on everyone in their clinics I also had private lesson with Matt very impressed with how he was quick to find and improve parts of my game that my club coach at home had not seen and have been at the club for years

    Rancho Las palmas tennis is a fantastic facility. Great staff and excellent instruction. Friendly and inviting

  • Avatar LM

    We were (yes, past-tense) complete beginners to tennis. My partner and I dreamed of playing tennis together and our with experienced friends. So we were on the hunt for: a week long camp with professional coaches in a resort setting so that food and accommodation would be close at hand. During our 15 hours of training with Elliot, Chris and Matt we laughed, were challenged and learned a lot. I am pleased to say that by the end we were able to rally and had confidence and a deeper understanding for the game. This was a great experience and time well spent in meeting our goal – to learn tennis. I have zero hesitation in recommending these coaches, this camp location as well as the resort for its accommodations and service.

  • Avatar LD

    My husband and I loved the tennis experience at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa. Our pros were excellent, friendly, patient and fun. We both had a great time and learned a great deal. Highly recommend!

  • Avatar RR

    We went to tennis camp for 5 days of lessons knowing nothing about the game. The professionals – Elliot, Matt, and Chris not only taught us the basics but also helped us find a love for the game! Our expectations were surpassed with a full five days of fundemtentals and skills training that we know sets us on the right path on our tennis journey. We look forward to a return trip later in the year to fine tune our skills and advance our game. Cheers to Cliff Drysdslr and the Omni tennis team.

  • Avatar GC

    Great tennis experience for group of ladies from Denver! Worked with Chris on customized drills while we attended BNP Paribas Tournament! Great pro and drills!

  • Avatar NK

    I enjoyed 3 days of private lessons for myself and my children with the tennis pros (Elliot, Chris, and Matt) at Las Palmas Resort and Spa. It was all around an A+ experience. – Teachers were extremely friendly and engaged – Very comfortable teaching at a variety of levels and ages The lessons were so enjoyable that the 1 hour lessons passed by in what felt like a matter of minutes. I am a regular and experienced tennis player and have worked with a variety of instructors and would rank the Las Palmas team as one of the best and skilled professionals I’ve worked with.

  • Avatar IK

    The weather is beautiful and the resort is well kept; albeit the rooms are a bit tired and since the golf courses flooded- they are doing work to renovate. The hotel staff is adequate but the spread out facility makes transportation from the tennis courts, lobby, restaurants and hotel rooms very far apart and requiring golf cart rides. The cart drivers were nice but very under staffed. Therefore when we called ahead to be picked up -many times they were either no-shows or very late. Also , the hotel buses only shuttle you to the Indian Wells tennis facility every hour. As far as tennis camp – we had a great group and the tennis pros were wonderful, sharp and gave insightful instruction to improve the game. As far as Cliff Drysdale Camp the week of Indian Wells tournament- Our only complaint was that the tennis activities were not clearly spelled out and a few of us completely missed playing tennis with the tennis celebrities- though it was an extra $500 that we prepaid for the honor. We missed playing with Tiafoe, Azarenka, Eugenie Bouchard and Daria K, and Tsitsipas. When explaining my frustration with the staff- I would have liked them to accept responsibility because I was denied this experience ; instead there was no attempt to grant me this activity next year, gratis. Also on the first day of the morning clinics I was told by the pro shop to go to the wrong court so I only received 1 hour – not 2 and with an unknown group. Our first day’s Indian Wells box suite was fabulous. It was just perfect being air conditioned and the outdoor seats were in the shade. Unfortunately this was the only day we had this suite. The other days were seats facing the sun and the escape was a room in another section of the stadium but we could only view play on T. V. In this room. Indian Wells is a fabulous tournament where you cal walk around and see the players on the practice court, it’s intimate, too. The Taste of Tennis was really fun and the food was superb.

    Great venue. Well connected staff. Well arranged clinics and Indian Wells Tennis access.

  • Avatar JH

    Great experience for daily tennis; all one location, walkable to the courts and lots of options at the resort for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Terrific coaching, supportive,, fun and at the same time learned many competitive techniques to raise my game. The daily tennis program was THE highlight for my trip. The accommodations were resort quality, very spacious and comfortable. The front desk agreed to move our room closer to the pool which was appreciated.

  • Avatar IT

    Very nice resort. The outdoor area by the pool for food and beverage is excellent . Food quality and presentation is outstanding and one must try the grapefruit jalapeño margaritas . For those interested in spa, services are great and prices reasonable. Now for two years in a row, I have stayed in one of their older rooms. Those could use some updating. It is my understanding that they are going through renovation in phases. We were on a girls trip and some of the women who stayed in remodeled Suites said that their units were very nice. We played three days of tennis (clinics). The tennis director Elliott is excellent in ensuring we get the best value for our money and provided high quality lessons, two years in a row. We plan to go back again next year.

  • Avatar SO

    My club tennis pals and I spent a wonderful three days in tennis camp with Elliott and Joey at Rancho Las Palmas. I learned more there than I have in the last year of tennis and feel it really accelerated my game and my confidence.. Oh, and did I mention is was fun! I would highly recommend you make this your next tennis destination.

  • Avatar AN

    Seriously, there were no weaknesses. The hotel was beautiful. My room was nicely decorated and clean. The restaurant at the hotel had wonderful food and if I needed a quick bite I could go to the coffee café. The staff at the hotel and spa were all so sweet. I had my nails done at the spa and they were beautiful. I also used the day facilities to get ready for the flight and I was provided with everything I needed to get ready. I got so much out of the tennis instructions with Elliot and Joey. It changed my game completely (I didn’t even know about the different grips). Elliot and Joey were knowledgeable, funny, patient, and I definitely looked forward to playing every day. I am absolutely a better player now thanks their instructions. Can’t wait to back next year!

  • Avatar LG

    This is an excellent getaway in late Fall for those of us looking to escape the rain and play some outdoor tennis. The coaching was really good, once the shock of an 8.00 a.m. start wore off, and the drills were both fun and at the same time aimed at improving the typical recreational player’s game, singles and doubles. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. There are a couple of pools and hot tubs to wind down in. My only quibble, and it is a pretty minor one, is that the food was adequate in terms of menu and places to eat, but nothing that would make you get too excited about dinner/breakfast, but we weren’t there for the cuisine, so as I say a minor issue. All in all a great place to kick back for a few days, play some tennis and enjoy the sun.

  • Avatar SS

    My Alaska women’s tennis team visited the resort for a second year in 2017 because we enjoy the setting and the tennis camp. We stay in friends’ condos, walk to the tennis courts and play about 6 hours each day. We enjoy the pools and the proximity to the shopping area with its good restaurants. We prefer off season (fewer people) and cooler weather. We really enjoyed our stay iun 2016 when the USTA nationals were held at the resort while we were in town. We would love to have that happen again. the only weakness I could see is the club house by the golf course and tennis club does NOT serve espresso?! an espresso machine would ice the cake on a lovely resort.

  • Avatar MI

    Beautiful courts and great pool area. The place is quite spread out so be prepared to walk a lot. The bar area is super nice and very relaxing. Overall great experience. I was there for nationals for my 4.5 women’s team and they were super organized and very positive.

    I had a 2 hour morning clinic and a 1 hour private lesson later in the day for two days. This was an ideal schedule, just enough time to work on my game without becoming too tired. I was particularly interested in improving my backhand, and the instructor really helped me with this.

    I had an awesome time at Las Palmas Resort near Palm Springs, CA. The pros were so fun and I got a great workout. I was able to play almost 6 hours of tennis over 2 days and felt excited about the progress I made. I booked early in advance and had wonderful customer service with Elliot. I also enjoyed my lesson with Rob W. I recommend booking in advance for the clinics because they do book up.

The resort is beautiful,there is an adults only pool and spa curtsied,plenty to do minutes from the hotel.Weather is almost always great.There is Golf on site,and it is very kid friendly.Music festivals at Coachella 20 minutes away.Give it a try,you’ll have a terrific time.

    What an amazing week, participating in the Tennis with the Stars Experience at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas this past month! From the moment I arrived I received the star treatment from the resort and tennis staff alike. The resort grounds were very well manicured and the sweet aroma of flowers filled the air. My first afternoon brought me right to the country club and the tennis center, where I was greeted and set up with my lesson by the friendly and energetic Director of Tennis, Elliot Pegg. Throught the week whether I saw Elliot at his post in the tennis center, elsewhere on the resort grounds or at the Indian Wells tournament, he always had time for a smile or quick conversation. My first lesson was with the Head Pro, Robert Wright and he provided it with the perfect balance of instruction, encouragement and key points to work on, all delivered with his distinguised English accent. You could always tell what court Robert was teaching on, and regardless of who his student was, he always provided the same exceptional service, with the love of the game and his job shining through. The rest of the week’s instruction also included the Cliff Drysdale Tennis team members Scott C., Scott M., Don H., and Joey H. The combination of campers from all over the States and the approachable, knowledgable and simply fun tennis staff made each new day better than the last. Part of our package included a Pro/Am tournament, opportunity to hit with some professional tennis stars and a star exhibition. The Omni Rancho Las Palmas/CDT tennis team, along with the organization Acing Autism presented a wonderful evening, that truly shone under the backdrop of a setting sun on the mountainside. Every now and then you might miss a ball because you are taken aback by your beautiful surroundings. The proximity of the resort to the Indian Wells tennis tournament (which multiple days of attendance were included in the Tennis with the Stars experience) make Omni Rancho Las Palmas an ideal tennis destination in March, but truly for all year round. The only downside I can think of was that my experience ended too soon. So I urge anyone who loves tennis, breathtaking scenery and star service to call Omni Rancho Las Palmas and reserve a court with Elliot and Robert today!

    I attended a “Tennis with the Stars” experience which included a tennis clinic each morning and then attendance at the pro-am and an opportunity to hit with some of the rising stars of tennis- Madison Keys, Genie Bouchard, Taylor Gritz & Francis Tiafoe one afternoon/evening, and then attendance at the Indian Wells Tennis Tournament the other two days! Breakfast was included daily and we had dinner as a group 3/4 evenings included. It was a fantastic experience with exceptional tennis instruction provided by the Cliff Drysdale Team of Don Henderson, Scott Colebourne, Joey Hanf & Robert Wright! The experience was top notch, the hospitality was tremendous and the setting was ideal. I would highly recommend the resort as a “go to” place to work on your tennis game and to vacation!

    Robert Wright is an amazing Tennis Pro. Great techniques and super fun clinics.

  • Avatar DM

    I can’t rave enough about this place! The setting is stunning and the pros are amazing. I can’t decide if my favorite tennis was the group drills or the private lessons I took. The group drills are fun and fast and went too quickly! This resort is very lucky to have Rob Wright as a pro — he is just the best! Rob was able to quickly assess my strengths and weaknesses and I loved my private lesson so much I made sure to request him specifically for the rest of my trip. The pros here are not only professional but incredibly friendly — they give great instruction while also making sure you are having fun. Isn’t that what a tennis vacation is all about? I will definitely be returning here for fun in the sun in beautiful Palm Springs.

  • Avatar MN

    After a week of business travel, my husband and I took a few days off in Palm Springs for some R&R. During this time, we spent our mornings at the CDT adult clinics, followed with a private lesson afterwards for 3 full hours of great tennis each day. The price was quite reasonable for the amount and quality of tennis offered. Robert and Elliot were super fun, easy going, yet still very skilled tennis pros making sure all levels of players had a great experience. While didn’t have an opportunity to stay at the resort, the grounds were pretty and the views of the mountains from the courts were stunning (to the point of being distracting … you can blame the mountains for that missed shot).

  • Avatar SR

    Had an amazing experience here -the tennis facility was amazing and all the pros were exceptional . Both rob Wright and Elliot Pagg were amazing in court and very professional and engaging off court during our Indian wells retreat. Would definitely recommend this property and program to all tennis fans !!

    This tennis resort was amazing. I had the best tennis instruction ever from Robert Wright. He was personable, knowledgable and most importantly he had an amazing teaching style. He was able to assess what needed to be changed in my technique and game play and explained it in a way that I understood and could relate to. I left feeling like I was a much better tennis player. Go to this resort and ask for Robert Wright!!!!

    Loved my five days at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa. Spent the mornings working hard and having a blast on the tennis court and the afternoons watching the pros at Indian Wells show me how tennis is done in their world! Our pros with Cliff Drysdale were so much fun and super accommodating working with us before and after drills in the mornings! Can’t say enough good things about Rancho pro Robert Wright…he’s the best!

    It was the most fabulous tennis experience of my life. I took a private lesson with Elliot – he is brilliant! I learned so much. I also did a clinic with Robert who is amazing and very savvy. My husband and I did a mixed clinic with Rob and Elliot – it was awesome – we are coming back every year because of the fabulous instructions. Thank you Omni Rancho Las Palmas for hiring Elliot and his crew! They will make you a lot of $$$$$.

    While attending the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, we started our daily activities with a clinic at Rancho Las Palmas CC – Cliff Drysdale Tennis. Elliot Pegg and RobWright were great instructors and a joy to be with and treated all the attendees with respect to their abilities. No one ever felt intimidated or like they did not belong. We will be back next year for both the tennis tournament and our daily dose of clinics.

    I spent several days playing tennis at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas last year and I cannot wait to return. Elliot and his Cliff Drysdale team offer the highest quality instruction, a very positive and fun dynamic, not to mention absolutely stunning views surrounding the courts. Counting down to my next tennis trip there!

    I traveled from Alaska to the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa in Palm Springs, California with 6 women friends to participate in a 3-day, do-it-yourself tennis camp. The quality of the professional tennis director and coaching staff was extraordinary. The three day, 3-hour tennis instruction took all of our individual tennis skills to a collectively higher level of competency and efficiency. The drills were exceptionally well focused on every aspect of the game; the instruction was clearly articulated and demonstrated; explanations and demonstrations of tennis strategy were extremely beneficial; and IT WAS FUN!!!! All 7 of our group will be returning to Omni Las Palmas in Palm Springs next year to continue building our tennis proficiency with their excellent coaching staff. I cannot over stress what a pleasure this tennis camp was for each of us.

    Alberto gave my 10 year old granddaughter a tennis lesson on Saturday 6/25/2016. He was extremely patient and awesome with communicating at her age level. He was great and I can’t say enough good things about him. Savanna walked away from the lesson with some techniques she will carry into her ongoing lesson at home. Pro shop did not have anything to offer to the younger crowd and a few of the visors that we picked up had stains as though they had been worn already. The kids had one unpleasant encounter with a lifeguard at the water slides. They were sitting in an area marked “no sitting” and the lifeguard ask them if they could read. Ages 10 and 8 and they responded “yes” and he asked them “why are you sitting there then” and told them to put on glasses and move. I felt that could have been handled a little kinder. HOWEVER, with that said the staff across the resort were exceptional. Overall, our experience was excellent. We were there as a party of 6 adults and 6 kids and we plan to return again next summer. A shout out for MATT he took care of us at our cabana on Sunday and was excellent despite being short handed around the pool and have to double up on his work load.

  • Avatar CW

    The resort is lovely, but the tennis pros do not seem to make this place special. We signed up for 4 days of tennis camp and daily lessons and did not enjoy the clinics. First, class is structured so that inconsistent players get punished for missing shots and must run laps in the heat, while the best keep receiving instruction and play time. This seems short-sighted; the weaker players should not have to forfeit their chances to improve. Also, it wears them out, so they actually play worse and it affects the whole group, when we have to pair up. All spirals down from there. Politely pointing this out and suggesting a less exhausting option got an icy reception from instructor Rodrigo. Second, the pro’s attitudes are not as warm and friendly as those at Omni La Costa, Bally’s Las Vegas, or The Colony in FL. They don’t seem to enjoy what they’re doing here, nor are they organized. There were multiple scheduling issues with us and others in the clinics, where we signed up for the same time every day and somehow got bumped and not notified. Third, it gets pretty hot there, so check the weather. I would not recommend Omni Las Palmas for tennis clinics/instruction, but if you’re there just to play, it can be quite nice. Everyone loved the spa, so don’t miss that experience.

    I absolutely loved the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort! I was there in October, 2015 for the 4.5 USTA National Tournament. The temps soared to 105 degrees! Other than that, the resort and the tennis facilities were fabulous, and I would love to play there again. The tennis courts, pools, restaurants, tennis director for the tournament, Alberto, were all top notch! I am looking forward to returning to this resort soon!

    RLP facilities are great but the real highlight is the excellent team they’ve assembled. Alberto, Elliot and Rodrigo are all first-rate pros and Connie provides great support for the guests. Really enjoyed hitting the court with these guys. Also, the stunning backdrop doesn’t hurt either! Can’t wait for my next visit.

    Outstanding!!! This sums it all up. I have an 18 yr old daughter who plays NCAA II tennis and she wanted to keep her skills tuned while on vacation and Jerome simply delivered. Gabi hit with Jerome a total of 4 times and played doubles with some members. The tennis was the highlight of our trip and we can’t wait to see you guys again!!

    I’m a beginning player and took two lessons with Jerome. He is an exceptional teacher–I enjoyed the lessons very much and feel like my game improved. Thank you!

  • Avatar KT

    My wife and I had an incredible week! Between the tennis clinics and our private lessons, we played 4 hours a day with Jerome, Alberto, and Elliot. The instruction was superb. They were high-energy and encouraging, but most importantly, they provided very precise feedback (on our strokes, volleying, serving, footwork, and more) that has helped us both improve tremendously. Having been to other tennis programs and clinics, and having had numerous one-on-one instructors, I can easily say that this was the best instruction that I have had. Off the court, Jerome was very accessible and it was very easy to communicate and coordinate our lesson times. They were all incredibly flexible and we are extremely grateful. We would recommend Omni Rancho Las Palmas to any of our friends!

  • Avatar CM

    We had a superb time. The lodging was so very comfortable and the room was spacious with plenty of drawer and closet space so living out of a suitcase did not have to happen. The bathroom had a sink vanity and vanity so plenty of space for us to get ready together. The staff throughout the resort were so friendly and went out of their way to be of service. We signed up to participate in several tennis clinics. We understood that there would be all levels and the instructors accommodated this situation with perfection. I felt the drills came at me fast and furious and was a bit confused, but I then realized how helpful this was in a game situation. The instructors’ eyes never missed what the individuals were “doing” with ball and racquet as their turn came in the drill. The instructors gave attention to the skill at hand for each individual and helped individuals with their “flaws” as they could without taking away from the group pace. They were positive and had their own unique personalities which amused and brought smiles. I felt they were appropriately familiar and remembered names extremely well for the session and day to day. Our instructors were Jerome, Elliot and Albert. We would take the clinics again in a heartbeat and possibly add a private lesson or two. There was some confusion with enrolling in the clinics and a mistake was made. Not only did Jerome compensate us with an hour of complimentary court time. He stated it was his fault and apologized and even followed up with a phone call apologizing again which we felt was going well beyond what was needed. I was very impressed. I would recommend the tennis experience and the resort very highly to friends and family and look forward to our next visit. Some of the categories below were not experienced because of time and what we like to do. So no opinion just means we did not experience. The Palm Café was perfect for us for breakfast. I am losing weight and the staff accommodated easily to my very low carb food choices.

    Visited the Omni Tennis Resort Jan 2015. Husband was at Rancho Mirage writer’s Festival and I was looking forward to some tennis. I was very fortunate that Albert Fernandez, Tennis Pro had some open time. I had a fantastic time. He exhibits such Professionalism, sensitivity and is just a really nice person. Recommend highly!

    Alberto and Jerome were wonderful to work with. They made our family vacation a great experience! Traveling with in-laws and siblings this was the first vacation where everyone had a great time. We plan to return next year!

  • Avatar CN

    Jerome and Alberto were such fantastic coaches and people! We loved every minute of our time spent on the court. Plenty of well maintained courts with spectacular views of the mountains. Food options are not bad around the area too! And when you are done with tennis, you can go shopping at the factory outlets nearby! Tennis and shopping…. Best combo ever! 😀

  • Avatar LK

    If you are looking to improve your tennis shots and overall game, in the sunshine, this is the place for you. I wanted to get as much tennis instruction as I could in three days – and that I did. Albert and Jerome were both patient with me in understanding where I needed to improve and teaching me how to do just that in our private lessons. During the clinics, the focus on strategy and technique in a doubles environment allowed me to put what I learned into action, while continuing to receive instruction. I highly recommend Cliff Dryside Tennis at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort.

    Director of Tennis, Jerome Millet(JM), is a first-rate instructor. JM listens and then develops tennis performance solutions tailored to the unique player. I can recommend JM without reservation for those players seeking an adaptive and flexible tennis camp experience. Regina, at the resort’s tennis gateway, is a gracious host exhibiting a high-energy, customer focus. Off Season afternoon temps can reach 109 Farenheit! No Joke!

    My daughter is a competitive junior open player in SoCal and she trained mornings over a long summer weekend here. Las Palmas has fine facilities and staff in a picturesque desert setting. The new head of tennis at Las Palmas, Jerome Millet, is a very knowledgeable coach. In just a few lessons and clinics, he elevated (incremental progress is our goal) my daughter’s game. The workouts were efficient, well planned and tailored to addressing improvement in the areas that would most benefit my daughter’s development. Jerome has an affable, approachable way with people of all ages (my daughter did the adult clinics) and he has a good positive-coaching ethos. Las Palmas seems to consistently get good people: last year while vacationing here, we had a similarly good tennis-training experience with Kevin. Overall, we are grateful for this experience and resource.

  • Avatar JJ

    My son and I participated for one week in Jerome Millet’s clinic and private lessons. Jerome was immensely helpful for my son who is a sophmore in high school. Jerome taught him the open stance forehand, and improved my son’s back hand top spin with some adjustments to his mechanics. Jerome was helpful for me in my grip, volleys, and serve. I would definitely have private lessons in the future with Jerome. He brought energy, enthusiasm, technical experience, and loads of drills. It was a great aerobic workout.

  • Avatar MS

    I took the family to Palm Springs for Spring Break. Our goal was to watch some matches at the Paribas and find a pro to drill us for two hours as a family each day — not easy as our youngest is a pretty raw 3.0, my daughter and wife are solid 3.5s and my oldest son and I are very strong 4.0s. I blind emailed Kevin Connolly after a Google search and he was incredibly responsive >> through phone calls, texts and emails, I had our drills all lined up in a day (even though we were not going to be staying at the Resort). He matched us with head pro Brendan Easterling, saying he was giving us “his best.” Boy, was that ever accurate.
    Brendan was absolutely perfect >> every drill involved all of us, challenged all of us, had a purpose, and fit to an end goal. We all got noticeably better at certain aspects of our game and the 3.0 son in particular made leaps and bounds in his game. And we had so much fun the hours flew by every day. We did a lot of other things while we were there (hiking, shopping, lounging by the pool, dining out) but the tennis with Brendan absolutely MADE our vacation. I can’t recommend Brendan, Kevin or the Rancho Las Palmas facilities highly enough.

  • Avatar CB

    The tennis facility, and the staff at the tennis club are fantastic!

  • Avatar SR

    I would tell friends to check in with the tennis center as soon as they check in to learn about what tennis instruction is being offered. Then they can sign up for the morning tennis clinics. These featured a specific tennis skill and by taking four in a row I was able to get a good refresher of tennis basics while meeting others in the clinic. By adding a personal lesson I was able to bring my skill level back up in a matter of days. If I had stayed another week I would have made use of the tennis centers matching service to play games. As it is upon my return I have gained the enthusiasm to put my new skills to use at a local club. The instructor Brenden Easterling was an excellent. He focused on the basics and simplified each swing in a way that let me stop over thinking. The way the clinics were set up in the morning were perfect for allowing time to take road trips to the local scenic attractions. It can be frustrating trying to get old skills back, but this resort and instructor made it very enjoyable instead! I hope to return next year!

  • Avatar JS

    My wife and I had the pleasure of enjoying two sessions with pro Brendan. We are new to the game and Brendan was excellent. We both learned more in two days than we ever thought possible. Go see Brendan!

  • Avatar AA

    Beautiful location surrounded by mountains and great temperatures in the 60s and low 70s in February. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and is able to instruct high level players as well as beginners. I was able to set up 3 hitting sessions/lessons with Brendan during the week. He and the other pro Kevin were very easy to get a hold of and communicate with to set up the lessons. Brendan is very personable; he is an excellent instructor as well as player. The practice sessions were fun and challenging. Best of all, I am returning home with some tips and improvements in my game, as well as new drills to try at home.

  • Avatar GT

    Tennis at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa is definitely not to be missed! Whether you are going to improve your game, get fit or have fun there are a variety of ways to get your tennis on. During my recent visit, I took advantage of clinics, private lessons and participated in a competition all of which helped improve my game. The instructors are very skilled as they can quickly analyze technique and implement helpful adjustments including those designed for injury prevention. So whether on vacation or a true tennis junkie, just be clear on what is you want to get out of your tennis experience and you’ll see it unfold each time you hit the courts.

  • Avatar RM

    I had a wonderful tennis experience with Brenden Easterling and Kevin. Each ran a clinic in which I was a participant and then arranged for match play with others at the resort. Both gave exceptional instruction that was very helpful and clear. They made sure that the teaching points actually practiced multiple times until they made sense. They ran teaching clinics not exercise clinics. Top level instruction

Not only will we be going back this year for the 3rd year in a row but I go at least once a year with just my husband or family. If tennis is what your looking for you won’t be disappointed!

  • Avatar KS

    This is a great resort and spa with tennis and golf on you doorstep. Friendly professional staff. The pros are great. I took clinics with Brendan and Kevin and it helped my very rusty game completely. I think they have over 20 courts and can put together games for your level.

    The instruction was excellent in both large and small group settings. The views are spectacular.

    Excellent instruction from Brendan Easterling. He used multiple techniques to improve both forehand and backhand. One thing I really appreciated was his use of visuals. Also he apprciates progress already made. Does not change things that do not need changing. Was able to apply my learning when I played my next match.

    We had a wonderful 3 day stay at Rancho Las Palmas. The staff was very friendly, and Regina did an amazing job matching us with opponents each day. We had already heard of her reputation in this regard and she lived up the the hype! We also took one of the morning clinics and were very happy with the instructor and the variety of drills he chose, which were tailored to help us improve our areas of weakness that he identified.
    The grounds are beautiful. It was hard to believe these 25 courts were mostly vacant during our January stay, but I know it’s not that way later in the year when Spring arrives.
    One more thing. All the club members we played with and met during our stay were truly wonderful – very friendly and welcoming. I think it says a lot about a club when the members are as hospitable as the staff. I will look forward to coming back here often.

In two lessons, the tennis pro (Tory) improved my game tremendously – in a kind way, but challenging me nonetheless.
