About Kathy1158

With 4 children it was important to us to have a guaranteed sunny break, with flexibility. We love having the choice of dining out, or simply barbequing on the balcony. The flexibility meant we didn't have to rush from the pool to dine out if we wanted to simply chill, eat alfresco and wander out for drinks & entertainment later. As the children got older, we were able to still watch them in the pool from the balcony. (30 seconds to get to the pool if necessary!) Also relaxing with a drink on the balcony knowing the younger children were safe in bed was priceless. We holiday here four times a year during Winter & Summer months as the Seasons here are wonderful. We love the Climate, food, flexibility, facilities, space and tranquility.

Kathy1158 purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kathy1158 chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We purchased Los Olivos 14 years ago. We have a busy working, family and social life, with four children ranging at the time 2-16 years (now 14-28). The tranquility helps recharge our batteries, and energize. Our apartment is centrality located, with sea views overlooking the main swimming pool. Built to the highest spec the Penthouse is desirable and sought after. This property is ideal if you peace and quiet, but want restaurants, bars and entertainment at your figure tips. We didn't want to get eat out every night so lovely to stay in, bbq and enjoy the views on the balcony. The 5 * hotel also offers class live entertainment, which is highly recommended. With Security at both entrances of the resort, this gives invaluable peace of mind.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefits of this property are location, spacious, centrally located on the resort, making wherever you wish to be quicker and easier. La Manga Club in some parts is quite hilly, and can be quite a walk, but Los Olivos is perfectly placed. The shops, bars, cafe's, restaurants and the hotel is within easy walking distance. Having three balconies, this property offers Winter sun all year around, or Summer sun with shade on the front, or a balcony off the main bedroom for some peace and quiet.

Los Olivos also offers two pools and an indoor heated pool with jacuzzi if renting in Winter months.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The property was lovely and location to amenities was excellent. We will look to book for next year once we know the dates. We go to La manga every year in June and wanted to move away from our usual apartment. We found this property to be in an excellent location. Rooms were well appointed and views were great looking all the way to sea. Evening barbecues are a must. The pool in Los Olivos is nice and private with sun all day.

Wonderfully spacious with a large balcony with a wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment last year and returned again this year. Los Olivos is so central to the facilities at La Manga club, being very close to the tennis centre, restaurants, shops and supermarket. The apartment overlooks the lovely pool and there's a wonderful view of La Manga strip and sea in the distance. The apartment is very spacious and the three bedrooms are a good size with plenty of wardrobe space. It is useful to have two bathrooms too. There are two balconies, one at the front and one at the back, so you can catch the sun all day, wherever it is shining. I would definitely recommend this apartment. Thank you Los Olivos 24P for a fab holiday again.

Great location ends there?

  • 1 of 5

Really disappointed on arrival no indication of access to property apartment was extremely filthy even the management company admitted failings in the cleanliness. Owner couldn't accept criticism accused us of being rude and intimidating which wasn't so, suggested we move out which we did.

Have photographs and correspondence indicating the true conditioning of the property.

Spoilt our holiday could have been avoided if owner was prepared to clean property.

Owner's Response: I take criticism very seriously. My holiday renters want to enjoy their experience in my property and La Manga Club. This renter whilst complaining and bullying my management company was busy complaining to a Scottish hotel at the same time. By day 8, my management who are professional and have worked with the apartment and other properties on the club for many years had to put their hands up. They didn't know what else to do. He suggested a full refund but still prepared to stay. Thankfully this renter is a one off, the majority of my holiday makers love the place and return. Email from management : He is threatening to put the photos on your website and a bad review but that's bullying and this is the only way to deal with them!!! "All the photos are zoomed in very close to make it look worse and areas where there is rust like under the old fridge etc." He even complained about the bird poo on the loungers and the noise of the builders, I have a list if you need it? Anybody wish to see the full correspondence I'm happy to oblige.
