Nestling between the Mijas Mountains and Mediterranean Sea, The Lew Hoad Tennis Village is a magical place for a holiday on the Costa del Sol. Tucked away from the hurly-burly of the coast and set in landscaped tropical gardens, this Andalucian style village provides a tranquil haven to relax and enjoy the sun.
You don’t need to play tennis to stay at Lew Hoad’s! It’s such a lovely, peaceful place that many people come here just for a relaxing holiday in the sun.
Ideal for small or large groups and also families, everything you need for a wonderful holiday is on hand. Conveniently located for the airport, the Village is just 20 minutes by car from Malaga. The bright lights of Fuengirola and long golden beaches are only five minutes away and the beautiful white village of Mijas is also nearby.
A world famous tennis club is right on your doorstep. The Village is next to the fabulous Lew Hoad Tennis Club. You can play tennis there and use the other facilities - hairdressing & beauty salon, gym, restaurant, bar and free WiFi.
Six championship golf courses are within 20 minutes drive and there are many local attractions and amusements for the holiday maker to enjoy and a multitude of sights to experience in historic Andalucia.
Restaurants and shops are close at hand and a regular bus service for those who don’t want to drive.
All the apartments in the Village are privately owned. Our apartment, C108, is a spacious, air-conditioned, ground-floor, poolside apartment. It sleeps up to six people, ideal for a family or group of friends – and our special pricing makes it attractive for couples too.
The Lew Hoad Tennis Village is an intimate development of four separate apartment groups clustered around the Village pool and grounds. Built in picturesque Andalucian style, Lew Hoad’s looks delightful in the Spanish sun, with terracotta roofs, white walls and black iron work set against splashes of green and vivid colours from the mature, tropical gardens.
There is a large swimming pool in the Village surrounded by sun terraces where you can laze away your days in the sunshine and enjoy a leisurely swim to cool down. The terraces round the pool area are generously furnished with tables, chairs and sun loungers to share with the other guests. Please note that the pool is covered over for the Winter period November to April.
The Village is in an ideal location for a holiday on the Costa del Sol. Situated on the Ctra. de Mijas, the road between Fuengirola and Mijas, Lew Hoad’s is only 24 kms or 20 minutes drive from Malaga Airport.
About 2 kms down the road is the town of Fuengirola: once a quaint little fishing village – but no more! Today Fuengirola is a bustling holiday resort with beautiful beaches and lots to do. If you want to take a break from the peace and quiet of Lew Hoad’s, here you will find a place buzzing with restaurants, bars and night life.
Just up the road from the Village you can sample the other side of Spain: 5 kms away is the stunningly beautiful village of Mijas, a white village perched up high in the mountains. The views around Mijas are breathtaking and there are lots of shops in which to buy souvenirs and presents. Be sure to take a ride around the village on one of the special donkey taxis while you’re there!
If you fancy a round of golf during your stay, there are a host of courses to choose from. Within 20 minutes drive are six championship courses (Mijas, Miraflores, La Cala, Alhurin, Torrequebrada, Lauro Golf) and if you want to venture a little further, there is Valderrama, the Ryder Cup venue, about ¾ hour from the Village.
There are numerous attractions and amusements for you to visit in this area. Tivoli World is a vast entertainment park with live acts and theatre. From here you can also catch the cable car to the top of the mountains nearby. Mijas Aquapark is also a fantastic day out for the whole family.
Selwo Safari Park is a wild life park where you can walk through, not just drive through, to experience the animals (be quiet near the lions and tigers!). Fuengirola has it’s own Zoo – recently redesigned and revamped, and has opened to great accolades and plaudits from the public and press! Finally, in Benalmadena is the fantastic aquarium, Sea Life, where it’s possible to walk under the water as sharks swim overhead!
Lew Hoad’s makes a good base for sightseeing too. If you want to, you can take time out to visit some of the sights of historic Andalucia, with Ronda, Granada and Seville all within striking distance. Gibraltar is also easily accessible by the new motorway; a fascination for all Brits and a bit like Marmite – you either love it or hate it!
When you want to eat out, there are numerous restaurants close to the Village. The Tennis Club has its own excellent bar and restaurant, just 2 minutes walk away. The bar serves food throughout the day (including breakfast) and the restaurant is open for dinner with a delicious selection of Mediterranean food and International cuisine.
There are also a number of other restaurants just a few minutes walk away and then there is our own particular favourite - the Valparaiso.
Shopping is no problem either. A small shopping centre with a very nice Danish delicatessen is 5 minutes walk from Lew Hoad’s. The nearest supermarket is Lidl – 15 minutes walk, or 5 minutes by bus or car. A big supermarket, Euromarket, is 10 minutes away by car or taxi and then there is The Myramar Shopping Centre, with a large Eroski supermarket and enough shops and stores to satisfy the keenest shopaholic!
The Village has it’s own private car park with automatic gates. However, if you want to take a break from driving on your holiday, there is a regular bus service. The bus stops are outside the Village gates and there is a bus every 20 minutes in both directions up to Mijas and down to Fuengirola.
C108 is the largest apartment in the Village and can accommodate up to six people. Spacious and stylish, C108 is a ground floor apartment located by the pool – a wonderful setting for your holiday. It has its own private entrance and pathway, with a high hedge to ensure your privacy from the pool area – but you can easily keep an eye on what’s happening with the children in the pool if you need to.
C108 consists of a lounge, kitchen, dining area, two large bedrooms (one double and one twin), two bathrooms and a private terrace.
The private terrace is the ideal place to end your day with drinks and a meal by the pool. It’s furnished with patio table and six chairs, sun umbrella and two sunbeds for your private use (there are also plenty of sun loungers round the pool for shared use with other guests – as in a hotel).
This spacious, poolside apartment is ideal for groups of up to six people.
We also offer a 20% discount for parties of just two people. This makes C108 less expensive than smaller apartments with only one bathroom and a great deal for couples too!
Described as “the most beautiful tennis club in the world”, The Lew Hoad Tennis and Paddle Club is only a stones throw from the Village. The Club is set in the grounds of an old Andalucian country estate, surrounded by tropical gardens, palm trees and water features.
The Tennis and Paddle Club is named after the founder, Lew Hoad, who was a famous Australian tennis player of the 50’s and 60’s. Feared for his “big serve”, he won Grand Slam competitions such as Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open several times.
The recently refurbished sport facilities include eight illuminated tennis courts of Plexicushion and six illuminated paddle courts with the latest generation glass. But it doesn’t stop there. Other sports and leisure facilities include a swimming pool - set in the delightful gardens, pro shop, gymnasium, hair and beauty salon, and restaurant and bar with free WiFi.
All the facilities you need are booked and paid for direct with the Club, but we can reserve the tennis packages for you prior to your arrival if you wish.
The Club has eight illuminated tennis courts which use a Plexicushion surface to absorb body shock and reduce muscle fatigue. The surface also provides a system with a consistent and uniform bounce, long-lasting colour, and allows for speed of play specifications to be met.
Lew Hoad’s offer the following tennis facilities:
|15.02.2014 - 15.02.2014||St.Valentine´s Tennis Tournament 2014|
|13.04.2014 - 18.04.2014||Easter Tennis Tournament 2014|

|14.09.2014 - 20.09.2014||I.T.F Veteranos Memoria Lew Hoad 2014|
Lew Hoad’s has six fantastic illuminated paddle courts with the latest generation glass and artificial grass, and they provide a similar programme to the tennis one above.
Lew Hoad’s is not just for tennis. The club offers a range of facilities so you can keep in trim and pamper yourself a little on your holiday.
One of the best kept secrets on the coast, the Cascades restaurant excels at providing the finest fare in the most elegant surroundings.
There is an indoor dining room with fireplace and a sublime summer terrace next to the swimming pool. Here you can enjoy a magnificent menu of Mediterranean and International cuisine and relax in the peace and tranquility of this charming setting.
Friday night is gala night with dancing, and there is also a special Sunday Lunch.
Breakfast and delicious snacks are served all day in the bar area.
The Lew Hoad Tennis and Paddle Club is a very special place to visit on your holiday – and for non tennis players too!!
