Here's what others have had to say about Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort.

  • 5-Ball Rating "The tennis Trainer Riemer love bis job and he make an excellent job. I had 5 tennis training lessons - it were The best lessons ever! We come one more time! He and all others were very friendly and the Service was perfect."—T.S., Int., May 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "The tennis facility at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort was absolutely stunning. It sits atop a hill across the street from the resort and has 4 beautiful courts. Riemer, my tennis pro was awesome. He was super knowledgeable and I hit with him 3x during my stay. Riemer is great on the court and was super friendly. I hope to hit with him again soon!"—R.S., Pro, May 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating ""—R.T.,  April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "Riemer is a very friendly tennis coach and he is passionate about his job. I really enjoyed my lessons and my tennis game has improved!! Thank you For the lessons Riemer. See you next time"—E.D., Int., April 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "During my stay in at Santa Barbara beach resort in 2017 I had some excellent tennis lessons from PBI coach Riemer. My tennis skills have improved in just a few lessons. Riemer is very enthusiastic about tennis and his enthusiasm made me enjoy my tennis lessons even more. He really cares about his pupils' doing well. I highly recommend his lessons! And I will definitely come back and do it again."—A.S., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I have visited Curacao twice, last time January 2017. Beautiful island for holiday and congresses. I visited the beautiful resort Santa Barbara with excellent maintained clay tennis courts. Both times I had excellent lessons from Riemer, a PBI coach. A very sympathetic, enthousiastic guy. My overall tennisskills improved tremendously because of his inexhaustibly coaching. Back home I recieved lots of compliments ! I'm looking forward to visit Santa Barbara and Riemer again next year"—H.K., Int., April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "Santa Barbara is home to a fantastic golf course but a tennis fan won't go home disappointed . The tennis courts at Santa Barbara are exceptional. Well maintained, great surface, lighting for night tennis and a two minute stroll from the main resort make these courts a great place to play on Curaçao. With a PBI trained pro on staff, taking the time during your visit for a lesson is an investment in your game which you won't regret. Through peer matching, camps, semi and private lessons your choices are many to help improve your game. I found the staff both on and off the courts friendly, energetic and ready to help in making your stay memorable. When you arrive you will see that the resort is quite large but is some distance from the main city of Willemstad. Shopping, nightlife, or sight seeing outside of the resort will cost you as you will either need to rent a car or take a taxi. If getting away from it all is your idea of a vacation, Santa Barbara is your place."—K.M., Beg., April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "Reimer is very good and kind...we are (my wife, my kid and me) are use to take private lessons each week at our tennis club and Reimer find things that we didn't not correctly. He was very patient and funny with my son."—A.C., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—J.B., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The Pro Riemer Sijbring and his staff were excellent. The well maintained Har Tru courts were well maintained, and in a beautiful setting. Had a lot of fun and got several good tips from Riemer. Highly recommend to players of all levels."—E.F., Adv., March 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I received a private tennis lesson February 24, 2017 from Riemer Sijbring while on vacation in Curaçao at the Santa Barbara Resort. I needed a refresher on my tennis skills as it had been some years since playing regularly. Riemer focused our lesson time on my two areas of concern: my forehand and serve. I felt much more confident in both of these areas after my lesson. After playing with my husband the following day, he was especially impressed at the improvement in my forehand after having only a one hour lesson. After returning home from our vacation, I was delighted to see that Riemer followed up by sending me an email that reviewed what we worked on during the lesson and what I need to continue to work on. I would recommend anyone visiting Curaçao with an interest in tennis, to take advantage of the exceptional clay courts and teaching staff at the Santa Barbara Resort."—A.R., Int., February 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "What a beautiful setting in Curacao! Four green clay courts in awesome condition with lighting for night play. Very friendly staff who aim to please and make it easy for you. VERY reasonable prices and not a stuffy or fancy atmosphere at all. It feels like your home club the minute you walk in and greeted. The host Pro, Riemer Sijbring, is very personable and eager to make your stay the best. Highly recommended!!"—J.L., Adv. Int., February 2017
