    Comments:  Speedo Open Water Swim Camp with SwimForTri - You work incredibly hard. Thanks for your talent, swim brilliance, enthusiasm and sense of fun. Book chapters, drill set reminders and the prospect of homework (eek!). And you made time to edit filming of us all - which I'm sure will continue to be super instructive. Thank you to all concerned. To say that the week is value for money is an understatement. In summary, the swim camp was (very) challenging, instructive and a complete joy! Thank you!!

    Comments:  A useful sports complex to visit but expensive. Quality of facilities and classes offered vary so some are OK but others poor. Stayed in December when the cold wind whistles through the complex and open areas. The pool looked lovely but the water was far too cold for use. WiFi is very poor. Probably best to visit Club La Santa in the spring or autumn months.
