Our verdict:

For sporty families, a week on the beach can seem like hell. Sports holiday with a specialist like The Healthy Holiday Company are the answer, combining activities with great weather and relaxation. Former British number 1 Annabel Croft’s tennis academy at Pine Cliffs is spot on – low player-coach ratios, first class teaching and the Algarve on your doorstep.

Recommended tour operator: The Healthy Holiday Company

The Healthy Holiday Company says

A luxury resort with its own world-class tennis academy is the perfect choice for active families who want more from their holiday than simply time together in the sun with a kids club thrown in.

  • five-star resort
  • professional coaching
  • great for half term

No matter what your level of play and experience, the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy at the five-star Pine Cliffs Resort in the Algarve is the perfect place to hone your skills and help your children develop their confidence on the tennis court.

Teaching is fun and inclusive with small groups put together by the Academy’s professional coaches according to age and ability. With five floodlit courts, it’s also popular amongst families who simply want to enjoy a few games of tennis together. The choice is yours.

Pine Cliffs Resort offers a wide range of family-friendly accommodation from hotel rooms and suites to two- and three-bedroom residences and four-bedroom villas, some with a private pool. There’s a vast range of restaurants and cafes on site and the hotel sits above the beautiful Falesia beach with its golden sands and beach club.

There are various water sports available from the beach too – kayaking, jet-skiing, snorkelling, water skiing, body boarding and surfing – and the opportunity to restore body and soul in the resort’s stunning Serenity Spa and Wellness Centre.

As well as a nine-hole golf course and golf academy, you will also find an 18-hole crazy golf course, children’s club activities for ages six months up to 13 years, the impressive 7,000 square metre Porto Pirata children’s village plus an all-weather games room.

With the Algarve’s excellent weather, Pine Cliffs is a popular option for the February, May and October half terms as well as the Easter and summer holidays – and it’s just a half-hour transfer from Faro airport with flights from most UK regional airports year-round.
