Here's what others have had to say about Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.

  • 4½-Ball Rating "Omni La Costa is an outstanding place to go for adult tennis "camps". They create a custom program for you, based on your schedule, level of play, and interests. I came for a 3 day experience (Friday/Saturday/Sunday), which ended up being a mix of group clinics and private lessons. The pros are honestly outstanding, and easily the best I have worked with. Enthusiastic, supportive, and extremely good at teaching to my level. It was a fantastic experience. I did not stay at the hotel (I found a cheaper room nearby), but the grounds are lovely. Its so nicely set up, with easy strolling to get food or coffee, easy (free) parking, and just a relaxing place. The tennis pro shop has anything you might need, including (free) demo rackets from Head. I can say that if you are looking for something like this, I would really say go for it here. It was such a good experience. I want to come back soon!"—P.M., Int., September 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "I LOVED playing tennis at Omni La Costa. The courts were incredibly well-maintained, the staff was professional and super helpful, and the pros were great. Matt Dudley is the best- definitely book a lesson with him! He gives great instruction and has a ton of energy."—A.W., Adv., August 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "We attended the Cliff Drysdale Ladies' Tennis Retreat in May of 2019. This experience exceeded my expectations. The staff was excellent and the tennis clinics were very well organized and structured. The itinerary was well structured and challenging. The food was great. The tennis staff were very accessible and fun. I can't recommend this experience enough. I was exhausted at the end but it was so worth it!!"—K.S., Adv., June 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "The Women's Tennis Retreat is the best week in tennis. 2019 was my third camp in San Diego and one in Amelia Island. Each year seems to get better and better. I think this year the women bonded and socialized more, which makes it comfortable for the participants who come alone."—M.L., Adv. Int., May 2019

  • 3-Ball Rating "The pros at Omni La Costa are full of energy and are ready to challenge players at any level! I highly recommend the Spanish teaching pro Alejandro who helps players focus more on proper technique than on “winning a point”. If you want to learn the basis or want to fine-tune your game, you will get your money’s worth from him. Highly recommend!"—T.B., Adv., April 2019
  • 3½-Ball Rating "Omni La Costa has a wonderful tennis program for juniors and adults. My son who is 10years old participated in the tennis academy program 1-2 times per week and is challenged by the other players as well as the instructors. He has has an hour long lesson at least once a week with Alex, one of the teaching pros and ho has been there for awhile now. He is a great teacher and knows when to be serious and stern if necessary. He does not let my son get lazy with technique but challenges him in a positive way. I also take lessons from Alex and he definitely does not sugar coat anything. He wants you to become a stronger player and gives good consistent criticism as well as complements strong shots."—S.P., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—C.J., Adv., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "My 14-year old daughter has been taking private lessons from Alejandro Andino for several years. He is a remarkable coach. My daughter has improved her skills tenfold while working with him. She is always so pumped up to have a tennis lesson with him. He has inspired her to want to pursue tennis in high school. He is a true expert in teaching technique and skill on the court. He is so personable, engaging, and tons of fun. He has great patience and encouragement, especially when she was a beginner. He is outstanding at pushing her to always get better. If you are looking for a coach that will be committed to your success, look no further. He cares about every person he works with and takes his job very seriously. I can’t say enough good things about him. He is someone that I’d highly recommend!"—E.M., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating "After 25 years away from the game of tennis, I have started back at the Omni La Costa, CA! The entire staff of Cliff Drysdale Academy under the leadership of Bryce Cunningham have all provided me with positive support and enthusiasm with my recent comeback. My teaching pro, Joey Snell has been very thorough and detailed in his approach in bringing me up to speed. I feel that my game is even better than before my layoff! Joey is the best pro I have ever worked with. I owe him a bit compliment for making me better with the "mental game" of tennis with discussions on strategy and shot placement. Thanks Joey!"—C.L., Int., April 2019

I really enjoy having coaches from all over the world teaching the classes/clinics for myself and my family. Coach Alejandto Andino has been wonderful with my 11 year old daughter. His patience and knowledge of tennis has been perfect to help my daughter advance her tennis skills while allowing her to enjoy the game. I can honestly say all the coaches at La Costa have been wonderful. I have taken many classes over the past few years with Bryce, Alejandro, Travis, Joey, Sean, Brian, Cammie, Reza, and Michael and have never had a bad experience."—K.T., Int., April 2019

  • 4½-Ball Rating "Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,, The camp was awesome. My wife is a beginner and I have played at a 4.5 level for years. Bryce and Matt made sure we both had excellent instruction and an awesome time. You should see my wife's backhand now, it rocks. When I returned home to San Francisco, my buddies could not believe how much better my serve had gotten. I specially asked the coaches to fix my very "unimpressive terrible technique " serve. Each pro worked with me helping me to gain knowledge and confidence in my new mechanics. It was not easy, and I am still working with the technique I learned from the pros............... It has already been a hug difference maker in my game. thanks Omni La Costa Resort and Spa staff,, P.S. the service and food was incredible. We will definitely be back."—B.C., Adv., May 2018

  • 4-Ball Rating "The quality of the coaching was exceptional. I have been incorporating the elements of my game the coaches helped me improve and the results are so surprising I don't recognize myself on court. As in WOW, I made that shot and that one and that one too. The facility is equally stunning."—S.M., Adv. Int., January 2018

  • 4½-Ball Rating "I am an advanced player/teaching pro from Oregon. For my 50th birthday my wife booked us a two night stay with tennis at the resort. I would have been happy with just hitting but the instruction was great. Alex, who is from Spain, had some great tips and worked with me on sliding on clay. Jarrod, from Australia, and Joey, England, were both very entertaining and great to hit with. All of them had some good tips and made the experience great! Thanks also to Bryce for running a beautiful facility and finding other guests at my level to hit with."—D.B., Adv., March 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "We travel to this resort more than any other.

They made it fun while at the same time helped me learn some new mechanics for lobbing and drop shots."—R.W., Int., July 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I was a part of the Premier Fitness Camp TennisFit Program and the Omni La Costa. This program had a variety of exercise classes offered in the mornings, and we would finish they day off with two hours of tennis. Depending on the number of guests signed up for the program determines that number of people on the court, but in my experience I usually had semi-privates. They coaches were helpful, pushed you physically, and were most importantly... FUN! I laughed more on those courts than I did in any other classes that day, and I still managed to get a great workout. I would give this program five stars and recommend it to anyone looking to make a positive lifestyle change and make lifelong friendships in the process."—M.B., Adv. Int., May 2016
  • 4-Ball Rating "This is our favorited tennis resort. The setting and weather are gorgeous, the tennis clinics are both enjoyable and helpful. We have gone to this resort multiple times and look forward to returning every year. The tennis pros are thoughtful, straightforward, and suggest good tips. The clinics are pretty standard, but efficient. Private instruction is very good and worth doing. They run a good program here and are organized well. Highly recommended for those looking for a great tennis experience and a delightful vacation."—C.W., Adv. Int., May 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Definitely the best week in tennis! The pro's are exceptional, from the morning clinics to the afternoon match play. They are more than happy to give additional instruction before and after the clinics. Breakfast is included along with wonderful dinners. I had a great time meeting other tennis players from different states. The level's of the players is diverse, from 2.5's to 4.5's. The pros did an excellent job of matching us up according to level's for some exciting match play. I attended the first retreat here in 2015, and made sure to return for 2016. I intend on attending next year too! This is a retreat you should not miss!"—P.G., Adv. Int., April 2016
  • 4-Ball Rating "Retreat was amazing. Great tennis - terrific pros - unbelievable location. Service at hotel was a bit spotty, but the staff tried to make up for shortcomings."—S.L., Adv. Int., April 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "It was a fantastic tennis retreat. The tennis professionals, Bryce and Cal, did an amazing job instructing us and handeling all aspects of the retreats. The drills were fantastic, the dinner locations and menu selection were great and most importantly it was an overall awesome time. I liked the small group setting and the girls that were on the retreat all got along making it so much fun. Best retreat I have been too!"—J.T., Adv. Int., April 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I just returned from a ladies tennis retreat at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. Director Bryce Cunningham was a fantastic host and he and his staff provided a first class tennis experience for us all. We attended drills and team practices each morning and received professional feedback and instruction from all the pros that worked with us. We focused on different elements of the game each morning and then put our skills into practice during team competitions in the afternoon. It was an awesome experience and I would recommend it to anyone who has a passion or interest in enhancing their skills as a player, or desires an opportunity to bond with others who enjoy the game of tennis!

  • 5-Ball Rating "The tennis coaches at La Costa are outstanding. I gained so much confidence in my game during my time here. The coaches are fun and highly skilled. They intuitively know how to build your game and skill set. I got better every day. When I arrived I didn't have a back hand or a serve.. Now watch out! Most importantly they worked me very hard and it never felt like work. Don't hesitate to book a vacation here. It is super fun and your game will improve leaps and bounds..."—K.D., Low Int., April 2016
  • 3-Ball Rating "Just spent a few days at La Costa. Participated in a few of the clinics and had some privates with Cammy MacGregor-Ward. She is terrific! Thought the clinics were done well and my only complaint is the red clay courts that are not maintained properly. Bad bounces are ok on soft courts once in awhile but these courts were not well maintained. Cammy and I were the first to hit one morning and nobody had swept the lines and the top dressing was a mess. All good except for that."—B.W., Adv. Int., December 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "We found this resort by shopping hotel rooms on hotwire. As we only stayed there for 2 days, we can only see if we can drop in our kids for the tennis camps which generally have 5-day period. As we are from Taiwan, I had once worried about the communication between coach and 2 boys. It turned out working very well! Boys love the camp. We took 2 afternoon sessions, while kids in the same camp are at intermediate level, which is good. They mingled well, and our coach Chris kept reminding, and encouraging the kids during the practices and game play. Next time we definitely will stay longer for a complete camp. I myself took a tennis clinic lesson with coach Josh. He soon found where can be tuned on my serving. We also work a little bit on receiving. That was a very productive and pleasant hour for me. During our stay, the director of this tennis facility, Bryce Cunningham, was very helpful on all the lessons, camp, and course arrangements. Great great time we had with the Cliff Drysdale Tennis team! Good job!"—R.W., Int., August 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—K.S., Pro, July 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Excellent getaway with girlfriends and/or spouses. Lots of tennis opportunities including daily clinic options and match play. The private lesson instruction is excellent and customized to your request. The clinic variety and level fits both challenging and fun as an experience. Weather and setting are both beautiful."—T.L., Adv. Int., June 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating "While staying nearby with family, I had to chance to hit with Brian and Chris. Setting up lesson time on the red clay courts was very easy, and both pros were enthusiastic about tailoring the sessions to my needs. I will definitely return when I am in the area."—N.B., Adv., June 2015
  • 3½-Ball Rating "Bryce was awesome - personable and a very proficient teacher. Our son is a high level tournament player so we have had quite a bit of exposure to top professionals, and Bryce ranks up there with the best of them."—J.M., Adv., April 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "The Omni La Costa Resort is an an amazing place to play tennis, enjoy the outdoors, and relax while on vacation. During my tennis instruction, each pro excelled on making drills fun and challenging. They were very personable and professional. My 3 children, ages 7, 9, and 11 also enjoyed their time on the courts. The staff engaged them in drills that kept them moving while engaging them in friendly competition. I would highly recommend planning a tennis trip to La Costa Resort. I know I'll be visiting again!!"—L.G., Adv. Int., April 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I had a blast! Informative and a lot of fun. After spending three weeks at tennis fit, I was able to come home and play with friends and family and show much improvement. As a beginner I found each lesson valuable and challenging. Now that I am playing I would have liked to have played more sets while at camp. I will definitely book again. and recommend to friends. Thanks guys see you on my next vacation!"—K.C., Beg., April 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—S.F., Pro, March 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The best tennis resort ever! From being greeted with a smile each day by Sheena to the warmest welcome from Bryce. Truth is my husband and I have been coming to the resort the past 5 years with the exception of 2014 when the tennis was taken over by Cliff Drysdale. We were hesitant to return this year concerned the tennis wouldn't be as good. Boy were we wrong. The veteran staff was all there and seemed genuinely happy to see us and were as wonderful as we remember. The new staff whom we got a chance to know were great. Fun, professional, and made us feel like we knew them forever. Whatever Bryce is doing is working as he has the best staff and facility for tennis you could possibly find."—B.K., Adv. Int., March 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "I loved the Tennis Fit program with Josh! He brought so much fun to the court as well as method and strategy. It was such a great opportunity for me to not only burn a bunch of calories, but to reignite a love for a sport. I enjoyed the clay courts and the only weakness was that the time went by too quickly."—K.G., Int., March 2015

  • 4½-Ball Rating "I took my son and his friends to play tennis for several days. The instruction is very good and very professional. Since we were visiting from out of town the director of tennis set up matches for my son with the local players around the area. That was a fun time for the boys! We will be going back to do camps. The clay courts are fantastic! I would love to see some Junior tournaments played there."—V.H., Adv. Int., December 2014
  • 4-Ball Rating ""—W.C., Beg., November 2014
  • 4-Ball Rating "I really enjoyed the tennis lessons from Josh. I hadn't picked up a racquet in years so it was a great start for me! I am continuing to play back at home. I attended the PFC boot camp, but would take private lessons when the camp went on hikes...It was very worthwhile for me!"—D.S., Beg., November 2014

  • 4-Ball Rating "Very impressed by the Director of Tennis, Bryce Cunningham and his method of coaching High Performance players. He provided our daughter with techniques and tactics that would assist her in tournament play. He challenged her and she thoroughly enjoyed her sessions with Bryce. He made it fun but also pushed her. Would recommend the tennis program!"—H.P., Adv., September 2014
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I was at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa for 4 weeks during July 2014. I wasn't planning to play tennis while I was there, but after trying one tennis clinic, I ended up taking private tennis lessons for 1-2 hours every day for the last 2 weeks of my vacation, as well as participating in drill clinics. The tennis at the Omni La Costa Resort has recently been taken over by Cliff Drysdale Tennis under the direction of Tennis Pro Bryce Cunningham and I've heard from members of the club that the tennis has improved vastly since Mr. Cunningham took over a few months ago. I took one-on-one tennis lessons with Mr. Cunningham who was incredibly talented and professional. Apart from being an exceptional tennis player with a killer serve, Mr. Cunningham was an excellent coach and in just 2 weeks I've learned new skills and I feel more confident in my abilities as a tennis player.
    The staff in the tennis shop were really helpful and they were very accommodating in helping me schedule tennis lessons around my vacation schedule, offering lessons at all times of the day, including early morning and in the evenings. The tennis shop manager, Sheena, was very helpful in helping me figure out which of the tennis pros would be a good match for me and the director, Mr. Cunningham, was also very helpful when I asked him to advise me on how to choose a new tennis racket. My friends played tennis with a different coach and they had a lot of fun too. The tennis clinics are fun if you want to play with other people, while practicing skills, and I know they arrange various events too. I'll definitely go back to the Omni La Costa because of the tennis."
