Hi Susan.

what a lovely villa you have we were all bowled over by it. Can't think of anything negative to say, very well equipped and comfortable. Lovely meals out and nice days out in Cartagena and Murcia.We had the pool most days to ourselves. Thankyou once again Liz & family.

Great size villa for a relaxing family break

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family party with 2 x children (9 & 11). This villa was the perfect size with a good size kitchen and lounge to accommodate us all. The terraces are perfect for dinning and relaxing, with enough seating and loungers. Our only gripe is the pools are not heated, would be great if at least one was in the community. The facilities on on site are perfect for sporty children or adults, but are quite pricey, an hour on a tennis court with 4 x rackets hire was close to €50 with residents discount. The supermarket at Bella Luz was surprisingly not overpriced, most items seemed to be a similar price to the larger supermarket we went to on La Manga Strip. The restaurants in Bella Luz were lovely with very friendly staff, and again not overpriced. Would recommend a visit to Cartagena, it's only 20mins by car and easy to get to, would recommend parking near the port we used an underground one on the front. There is also a train from La Union. The villa is very well equipped, with everything you need in the kitchen. We made use of the cards and games in the lounge for the evenings and balls etc in the cupboard on the terrace for the children during the day, would have loved a cooler bag for a day at the beach though. Sue was very responsive both before and during our stay to any questions we had. I would definitely return to La Manga resort and this villa, we were all impressed with the resort and this community in particular was in a good location for bars and restaurants and not far from the tennis centre. Thank you for a great family holiday.

Brilliant family holiday, swimming pools on your doorstep, great beaches 5 minutes away and some of the best sports facilities in Europe. Great for kids of all ages. Sue, the owner was really helpful in recommending great restaurants and making sure we all had a great time. Can't wait to come back next year.

What's not to like?

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a comfortable, well-resourced, attractive villa that was gong to be practical for 2 families to enjoy together. This villa seemed to meet our needs and the villa owner, Sue, was extremely helpful in answering all our questions; and in making useful suggestions. I'm delighted to say that the villa lived up to our expectations and entirely met our needs. It was also clean, tidy and in a perfect location. We were very grateful for the air conditioning and the number of bathrooms. We've been to La Manga before so knew what a great destination it was for families, with excellent restaurants and pools. We had a great holiday and would warmly recommend La Manga, this villa and its owner, Sue.

We Love El Racho 145

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa. Sue, the owner, was extremely helpful throughout the whole booking process giving lots of advice on things to do and how to get about the resort. The villa had everything we needed and was well equipped with everything to occupy the whole family. We had four small children with us and the villa had everything we needed from high chairs to sterilisers. The swimming pool was a stones throw away from the villa where we spent most of our time. Overall a wonderful holiday - we would definitely stay again and recommend to all our friends

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a good time - it's not always easy travelling with little ones, but the pool always helps in keeping them entertained. Do come again Regards Sue
