  • 4-Ball Rating "We took a semi-private lesson with Reimer for over 1.5 hours and he was an excellent instructor. The courts are in excellent shape - the best I've seen in the Caribbean. I would highly recommend him and the tennis facility. They also matched us up with a competitive mixed doubles game."—D.K., Adv. Int., October 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
