About the Owner
We have a young family so had to buy a property that catered for them as well as us. We use the property for family holidays. Our families are also regular users. Some are elderly but enjoy the excellent weather and peace and quiet of the resort. This resort is great for families as it is safe and has good amenities. Our kids love the nearby swimming pool where they meet new friends every time that we visit. The sea and extensive beaches are also only 15 minutes away.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Having visited the resort for the first time this year I am delighted to report that I found the course to be in excellent condition.
As a par 68 it is manageable for all handicaps. The terrain is mainly flat and very easy to walk.
Tips : In my opinion it is not worth the 30 euros to hire a buggy as you have to stick to the cart paths.
I , on the other hand rented a power trolley for 10 euros. The average round took me 3 hours.
I would recommend the “twilight” ticket which is available from 3 o`clock onwards at a cost of 30 euros. Other tee off times were at a cost of 55 euros.
The practise facilities are second to none. Short game , long game and putting all catered for. You can hire clubs and balls but would recommend taking your own.
Don`t forget to bring your handicap certificate as the pro charges 15 euros to assess whether you are good enough to play the course.
For 8 euros you can buy a full English breakfast from the clubhouse bar which has magnificent views - ENJOY !
From the Owner
“The resort has great golf - with access to a number of other golf courses on the Polaris World campus but also has access to a large seafront and beaches at Mar Menor. It is also surrounded by small towns and villages. The resort itself has 24 our security so is really safe and also very quiet. Our apartment is only a 10 minute walk from the centre which has shops, bars and restaurants. However, it is far enough away to be remote from any noise whilst close enough to be very accessible. The ground floor location means that we have a garden and easy access for the elderly or less mobile.”
Activity and Interests
The resort is a 15 minute drive from the Mar Menor beaches and on to other resorts along the Costa Blanca coastline.
Watersports such as windsurfing, jet skiing, sailing and diving are all available.
Approximately 15 mins from Murcia and 40 mins from Alicante airports.
Use of a car is recommended but certainly not essential. Transfers to and from the airport (Murcia) cost about 25 euros each way (Taxis at Airport). Some companies offer a return to Alicante Airport for a fixed amount
Mar Menor beaches, 18km.

Motorway (AP7 782) 10km.
This is a superb apartment in a great location, not just for golfing but a base for lots of other activities to be enjoyed in the southern spanish climate. The apartment is still as new and fully furnished by ourselves.
There is one Supermarket on the resort which is NOT open 24/7 so please ensure that you bring essentials for the first night - particularly if arriving late on sunday. There are supermarkets which are likley to be open on the way from airports.

From the Owner
“The kids love the large communal pool where they always meet new friends. For the grown-ups the pool is also excellent as is the sun-bathing. An added benefit are the number of local bars outside of the resort that sometimes provide free transport to and from the resort - at all times of the evening/night. These typically cater for children - inline with the child friendly culture in Spain. Therefore, it is not just the golf to enjoy! For golfers, our apartment is only the length of the 18th fairway to the club house - therefore an easy walk to and from a round. Other apartments or villas often need a car - else a very long walk!”
