Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed in he apartment twice last year and found it delightful. Loads of things to do locally and the promenade was fantastic for early morning strolls and the children hired bikes locally and rode up and down for hours whilst we relaxed. We found a cinema complex with a bowling alley and my wife discovered some great places to shop. Weather was fantastic both times and the sea in the lagoon was a warm as bath water and the children could walk quite a distance with the water still only waist high. Would definitely recommend it!

Apartment with defects and malfunctions
The apartment is in the ad described as a luxury apartment of very high standard, which also the rental price reflects - then we expect good quality and good service...
It is possible that we were unfortunate, but there were many factors that pulled down the stay for our part:
The worst thing was that the owner accused us of having caused damage to the oven which was defective upon our arrival. We were drawn for a larger sum for allegedly having broken it. The fact was that we never used it and it was broken upon our arrival. The owner claims the opposite ...
Furthermore, we had twice problems with the aircondition. It was down for three hot nights. The caretaker was present and spent an hour to repair it. Owner claims we were responsible for the error. Result: We had to pay for the caretaker who fixed it.
We were two adults and three children. This resulted in the need to wash clothes during two weeks stay. When this was to be used it was not working. We called the caretaker, but he could not fix it during our stay. Result: Two weeks of hand washing of clothes.
At the conclusion of our contract wifi was included in the rental price. Anyway we were eight days without wifi. This was dimmed by the owner that it was the poor conditions in the whole area, but the person in the neighboring apartment had wifi all the time ...
Moreover, there were large amounts of ants in every room and on both floors in the apartment - it sought especially to food. We even found some 50 ants inside a small backpack we had standing in the living room and its presence was directly disgusting.
The owner has formulated a tightly written long contract which should be read carefully in advance. Our belief is that you risk being held financially liable for the smallest things. We were, for example, pulled in the deposit that it had come a little spot on the sofa. A spot that we not see upon departure.
The owner made a big case out of the spot, but did not say anything about the pillows that was in the sunloungers on the 2nd floor balcony. These were so nasty and full of sweat stains that we had to cover them with carpet before we would sit in them.
Positive things: The building itself and the area is pretty nice with palm trees and had a swimming pool at a distance from the apartment. This was very nice and was used often. Otherwise it was a very good restaurant just off the seafront.
But it's very muddy water in the sea nearby the apartment.
From the Owner
“I absolutely adore this area and with every visit I feel a great sense of peace and tranquility from the location. It's great being able to go for long morning walks with beautiful scenery and to just wake up to the sound of the sea. There is something new to enjoy every time we go. During our recent visit we found a new restaurant in Los Narejos with roof terrace dining and fantastic Sunday roasts called Rosalinds.”

There are actually hearsays about which major company will set up base in Spain. Disney is one of the names that is mentioned about this issue. Just to clear things up, Disney is not setting up a new franchise in Spain, but Paramount Pictures is. The Paramount Theme Park will be built on a lot measuring around 1.59 million square meters, located close to Alhama de Murcia at the intersection of RM2 and RM23.

“It's fabulous being right on the sea front - it's so tranquil as it's a beautiful lagoon.
