''I attended a week of swimming lessons with Swim Lanzarote. Paul is one of the good guys. I have done a lot of different activities over the years but genuinely found Paul's enthusiasm and helpfulness to be the best. I needed lessons because even though I learned to swim when I was younger, I could not swim properly. In addition to this I had been caught out a few times, most recently in a rip tide and had developed a fear of the water.


Paul helped me to do three primary things - improve my swim stroke immensely, understand how to swim properly in the sea e.g. rip tides, and overcome my fear of the water.


From a lesson perspective it was also great that they were early morning so I could be back to the family before the kids were even awake.


I would highly recommend Paul and his swimming lessons. He is very much about the student and what they actually need.''
