My Story​

Hi, I’m Dennis! Before I tell you about Sports Hotels, let me quickly introduce myself. I’ve been passionate about sports from a young age. The truth is, I’m just an average athlete, but enjoy a bit of cycling and running. Travel is another passion of mine, and it has also been part of my professional life for almost 20 years. I love exploring new destinations, learning about different cultures, oh and trying out local dishes. Food, yes, another passion.

In 2015 I left Barcelona and moved to Mallorca where I decided to raise my young family. With so many cyclists and prestigious sporting events held here on the island, I quickly realised the true potential of Sports Travel and wanted to find a way of combining my passions of both Sports and Travel.

I’m part of a new wave of digital entrepreneurs who have escaped the traditional nine to five. I was determined to live my life on my terms and do something I’m truly passionate about. I wanted more geographical freedom and to be more present in my family life, and more time for myself.

I still have the ambition to run another marathon (and go sub 4h), get out on my bike more often, learn how to swim (properly), and who knows, perhaps even one day become an IRONMAN.

About Sports Hotels

If you’re like me and can´t stand laying the pool all day, but prefer to be active, combined with a bit of well-deserved luxury, then you’re at the right place!

On my travels, I always tried to find hotels with good sporting facilities. But I always was amazed by how poorly these were displayed and presented online. None of the main booking platforms specialises in sports. Those which did only seemed to operate very locally.

Finding the right sports hotel and destination was frustrating, it required hours of research on numerous sites, blogs and forums. It got me thinking, and from there was born. The official company name is Pargo React, Lda.

My mission is simple! To help organise unforgettable sporting experiences abroad to athletes of all levels.

I pay special attention to cyclists, triathletes and swimmers. Therefore, all the hotels showcased are either cycling-friendly, have on-site lap pools or multi-sport facilities.

Non-athletes are more than welcome to stay at these sports hotels. So, no matter whether you’re travelling alone, with your family or your local sports club,  I’m confident I’ll be able to find the right place where everybody will be happy.

You will currently find premium hand-picked sports hotels and resorts in Spain and Portugal. Over time I’ll expand to other established and emerging sporting destinations across southern Europe.

Besides the accommodation, I can assist with the booking of premium bike rentals, lap pools, special sporting facilities plus additional travel services including airport transfers and car hire.

So whether you’re looking for a cycling break, a training camp or a family active holiday, feel free to reach out to me today. You can do that by using the On Request form on your sports hotel of interest or via the Contact form.
