Ricardo is an excellent swim instructor. I was very nervous in the beginning of the swim lessons due to my sons age. He is now 10 months and he enjoys his weekly swim lessons. Ricardo is patient and very kind. His cost is very reasonable and more than worth it. I would recommend him to anyone and any age group. In fact, I invited a friend to bring her baby for a group session. She brought her back for an additional lesson. I also want to add that Ricardo comes to my home for private lessons, which also eases my anxiety of bringing my baby to a community pool during the Covid Pandemic. More...

Excellent swimming classes for kids. They are also safe during COVID since the instructor is providing guidance and wearing a mask, but parents are the ones with kids in the pool. We got together at an outdoor pool so we could all maintain our distance. Ricardo makes the class fun for kids, too. I will likely hire them again as soon as the weather starts warming up. More...

My husband and I (both of us are in our forties) decided to take swim lessons in summer from Ricardo. I had no prior training AND I am not comfortable in water at all. A few lessons later I was actually swimming! The first two classes were difficult as I was fighting my fear of water and trying to coordinate my hands and feet but it gradually got easier and Ricardo was super positive, patient and encouraging during the process. I am rather proud of myself but couldn't have done it without Ricardo. My husband had taken swimming lessons back in college but hadn't swum in 20 years and now he goes into the deep end (13 feet deep) confidently. He is punctual and nudges you just enough so that you learn. He is a superb instructor. More...

I would have liked to give a 0 Star but that's not available. So giving 1 star. Issue was i took the swimming lesson course of 10 class and I was asked to give the full payment before hand which i obliged. And i was given an instructor who was supposed to teach me 1 class every week. But first couple of classes he came regularly and then i used to get the message from my instructor that he won't be able to come citing excuses that  he is either ill or he is injured. So he used to be absent lot of time. And then that start to break my continuity and slowly this kept on happening for 3 months where he only showed up for 2-3 classes. And then summer was any ways gone after 3 months and i didn't see a point of continuing my classes and anyways classes weren't helpful due to above mentioned issue and then i thought of asking for refund for my remaining  classes citing the above issue to Head of the Swimming school (Ricardo, blanco.swim@gmail.com, email to which i send the money)   which he  profusely denied without listening my concerns.Would never recommend going to this Swimming school unless you want to waste your hard earned money. He owes me alteast 300 bucks for my untaught classes. I tried calling him few times afterwards asking him that if i can get my money back which he obviously said NO and bluntly offered me that he could resume my remaining untaught classes next year which was obviously worthless as i didn't want to waste my next summer again with their instructors.  This place is a BIG NO from money, time and effort point of view...I am hoping against hope to get some of my hard earned money back from Ricardo.Getting lame message from Ricardo after i write the review that he is sorry and will not happen again but he doesn't talk about refunds. So that shows how much they care about customer experience. They don't give a shit. More...
