Here's what others have had to say about Baha Mar.

  • 4-Ball Rating "Karl and his crew have done an incredible job developing this new facility. The har-tru and concrete courts are impeccable and the one grass court is always good ta say that I have finally played on Grass. The staff is very friendly, attentive and experienced. They know how to show an individual or group many ways to improve their games while enjoying the experience. What are great new addition to the tennis scene in Nassau."—R.S., Adv. Int., May 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The tennis at BahaMar was amazing. Coaches top notch. excellent instruction. Really improved my game in the days i was there. Courts well maintained. Pristine really. The best I have been to in the past 5 years."—M.L., Int., April 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating "I played at the tennis center over vacation, in December/January, I did the 90 minute drills for nine of the fourteen days I was on the island, the sessions were well organized, kept the group moving and when the groups were especially small, gave the individuals the opportunity to choose what to do. Karl and Devlin were great and tailored the drill,sessioms so well as it relat d to the group"—D.G., Int., April 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating "Excellent tennis and beach hotel in Nassau, Bahamas. We will return next year."—R.B., Adv. Int., April 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating "Karl and the resort is wonderful. Proposed to my lovely fiance on the grass courts, it was magical. Btw the clay courts are absolutely so fun and these facilities are top of the line."—L.C., Adv., April 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating "The tennis courts are brand new and really well maintained. The tennis campus is beautiful; the greenery really makes the club pretty. Great tennis professionals s who will try to set up matches for you. Daily clinic which is fun. The resort as a whole is brand new and is beautiful. Amenities are amazing and the staff are super friendly and accommodating. I would go back for sure."—M.M., Adv. Int., April 2018
  • 3½-Ball Rating "I stayed at the Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar for 11 days in March 2018 and played tennis for nine of them! We arrived too late to play on day 1 and had one day of rain, otherwise it would have been 11/11. For reference, I normally play 2-3 times per week. I played high school and college tennis but took a couple of long breaks from the sport and just got back into it last fall. Daily drills The Baha Mar tennis pros offer a 90 minute drill every day of the week. This was my primary reason for choosing Baha Mar out of all of the Caribbean destinations. With that many days, I was worried that the drills might get repetitive, but I am pleased to report that pros Karl and Alex kept the activities and games fresh, fun, and interesting the whole time. Karl and Alex (and the rest of the tennis staff) were so positive and knowledgeable. They struck the perfect balance between game improvement and vacation. There was great, real-time feedback given and quick tips for improvement/kind corrections were very common. I was so impressed by the number of teaching styles and tools the pros brought to the court, both in the drills and the two private lessons I took with Alex. In the drills, Karl would explain a concept in multiple ways to ensure that people with different learning styles and skills all picked up the info. Both pros had an arsenal of drills to choose from to accommodate the group that came that day. I think the program management by Peter Burwash International has a lot to do with the pros’ training and techniques, but this was my first PBI experience. I was most impressed by how Karl and Alex found drills that suited the situation and benefited all participants, even with a range of abilities. I found I was generally toward the top of the group and some days (usually the days with 3-4 players) there was a good-sized gap between my skills and the next person’s. During these days, Karl kept me interested and engaged as I worked on consistency, footwork, placement, and off-pace balls while the other players focused on mechanics and form. A lesser pro would have alienated either me or those working more on fundamentals. Karl is an incredible, patient teacher and extremely friendly and approachable. Days with larger groups were the most fun for me as we split into courts based on skill level. We had several days with 8-14 players and I had a chance to hit out a bit more and develop points. Similarly to small groups, the drills were perfectly tailored to the group on the court and we had a lot of fun with friendly competition. Private lessons I took two private lessons with Alex. He set a great tone of working hard for the hour but also having fun. He didn’t go easy on me, as pros sometimes can do in a resort setting. Alex took my game and my improvement seriously and made sure I got what I wanted out of the time. He was motivating and encouraging but also funny and friendly. In one lesson, I was having trouble with my kick serve and Alex went through about eight different teaching tactics/activities help me understand the mechanics of the shot. In addition to being a really great teacher, Alex is also a very talented player and I had a lot of fun rallying with him. Even during the fast paced rallies he somehow kept an eye on my form and would give me the correction when he inevitably won the point. The trouble spots he identified very quickly were so spot on that it seemed like he’d known me for 20 years (hopefully my flaws are not that easily identifiable and he’s just good). All-in-all, I loved the private lessons with Alex. Tennis Facilities The facilities are picturesque and top notch. The courts were in pristine condition and the court margins were amazing. There was so much room that I was comfortable running down lobs and chasing an angled shot off the court. They have hard, green clay, and grass courts. I mostly used the hard courts but one of the drills was on the clay, which I hadn’t played on in 15 years—what a treat! I didn’t get a chance to play on the grass, but the court looked gorgeous. There was plenty of comfortable seating for on-lookers and shade on the courts. The air conditioned pro shop was nice too, stocked with free cold water and fresh towels. They had racket rentals and shoe rentals available, but I didn’t use this service. I broke a string during a late afternoon private and didn’t have any backups with me, but Alex grabbed me some other frames to try/use. They had mine restrung for me by 10am the next morning—so awesome! Pricing I thought the pricing was very fair (comparable to Chicago rates) and I clearly took advantage of most of the services offered. Also, you don’t have to stay at the Baha Mar to play tennis there. Overall Tennis review After playing for more years than my skills probably show, it was so refreshing to play new drills, hear concepts explained in new ways, and see new demonstration techniques. I’m beyond satisfied with the quality of instruction, friendliness, and capabilities I experienced. The facilities are world class and Karl and Alex are incredible. Grand Hyatt Unfortunately the rest of the resort wasn't as amazing as the tennis. We had trouble with loud music and spring breakers around the pool (and I'm 32!), as well as a lack of chairs. The restaurants were expensive and mediocre. I wanted a relaxing vacation and this was not it."—A.L., Adv., March 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating "My wife and I just returned from Baha Mar in the Bahamas last week. The rooms were extraordinary (new and modern), the beach was beautiful, and the restaurants were fantastic, but for me, the most notable highlight was the tennis facility and my tennis lessons with the Head Pro, Karl Vukobrat. They have 6 hard courts, 3 clay courts and 1 grass court, all in perfect condition. The Pro Shop had an arsenal of pro-level racquets to rent for $10. It was very easy to schedule lessons with Karl. I thought I was only going have a couple lessons, but due to the level of instruction, I ended up taking 5 lessons in 5 days. If you simply want someone to feed you balls and run you around, you can have that. But if you really want to raise your game, this is the right place! Karl is the best instructor I have ever had. He deconstructs all elements, notes all the positives and negatives, and brilliantly articulates his instructions with an encouraging tone. I asked him to be hard and honest with me and he did so. He reminded me of how important it is to return to the fundamentals when your game is a little off. He seemed to have a clever analogy for everything, which I always feel is helpful when learning. I eavesdropped on a couple of his other lessons, and he really knows how to connect with his student, whether they are an adult or child. After I returned home, he kindly sent me an email with the bullet points from our lessons to keep the instruction fresh in my head over the next several months. The tennis program at Baha Mar is one the biggest reasons why my wife and I are certain to return. If you want tennis to be a part of your vacation, Baha Mar is an ideal place to go."—M.R., Adv. Int., March 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating "An incredible team is at the Baha Mar. We spent a weekend with lots of tennis friends and they ran an amazing round robin both days! So much fun and all the staff was there to make sure all was running well. The courts are in great shape as well as the grass court. We will definitely go back there again. Only 10 minutes from Nassau Airport."—C.L., Adv. Int., February 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating "We all had a wonderful experience at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, Nassau, Bahamas. Karl and Alex were super tennis hosts along with our own, Fabio Vasconcellos, from our Florida location at Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club. The two 3 hour + tennis events were well-organized and a lot of fun to be part of during our trip to this resort."—J.S., Int., February 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating "This facility is new with all court surfaces available; hard court, HarTru and grass, a total of 9 courts. It's a small facility 5 minute walk from the BahaMar hotel complexes, which is huge and on the beach. The staff is friendly and skilled. When it's windy, the 2 HarTru courts are very windy. Otherwise the complex is beautiful and all the courts are in superb condition. I'd go again in a heartbeat."—S.B., Int., February 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating "I could not have asked for a better place for my Tennis vacation. Karl the director was great!!! It was my first time playing on a grass court, everything was well maintained."—K.D., Int., February 2018
