About Debra Robson

Debra owns a couple of beauty businesses based in Harley Street London offering semi-permanent cosmetic and medical treatments and training, and fat reduction.

Debra Robson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Debra Robson chose Los Alcázares

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, with a huge choice of restaurants in the square at Rio Nalon where you can enjoy everything from fine dining through to burgers, pizzas, steaks, Asian or Mexican cuisine.

What makes this apartment unique

It's fabulous being right on the sea front - it's so tranquil as it's a beautiful lagoon. But equally if you walk along the promenade you can reward yourselves with ice cool beer at the array of beach bars that line the route! There is no shortage of restaurants to tempt you either.

If it's Golf you are looking for there are 7 exceptional quality golf courses all within easy reach of the apartment.

And shopping is just a 10 min walk away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Debra's apartment in Nueva Ribera Beach. This is our third trip there and each time it just gets better. Debra has extended her terraces meaning we could sunbathe privately at this time of year in a virtual sun trap. The weather was beautiful, the apartment is immaculate and we had yet another wonderful time in this beautiful peaceful location. Just what the doctor ordered! Eva and Ricky, Essex

Superb venue for our New Year celebrations

  • 5 of 5

The apartment suited our needs perfectly.

The position overlooking the Mar Menor gave us great views from the 2 balconies and meant a short cycle ride or 20 minute walk to the town centre with its numerous cafes and restaurants.

The apartment has recently been refurbished and is very comfortable and clean providing everything one could need.

The apartment is surrounded by manicured gardens and there is a good security presence.

All in all I would highly recommend this apartment.

Apartment = well looked after and clean

  • 4 of 5

Don't believe the location given by the HomeAway app - it's the Nueva Ribera apartments close to the Spinosa restaurant. The apartment is well looked after, clean and has everything you need e.g. I think there were 3 different ways to make the coffee. The top balcony is nice and secluded and out of the wind and the lower balcony gives a good view of the sea. Plenty of kite surfing goes on to add to the visual spectacle. The block the apartment is in and the one next to it are well kept. The surrounding areas will need some economic revival of Spain before looking better. The area is the development before the airport but as only 2-3 planes land a day it's no hardship. The airport was being used by the Spanish version of the Red Arrows so actually quite entertaining for us. Food/drink are all good value in the area. A cafe stop for 4 people will be €5-6 not £15 in a UK Starbucks.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

I have been here for just 4 days and I felt to write a review to say how pleasant our stay is so far. Debra has been tremendously helpful thus far and couldn't ask for a better host. The weather is around 24 degrees and we cannot believe it is October. Food in the area is wonderful, and you can dine out affordably without worrying to break the bank. Beach is lovely and the bar / restaurant on the front of the apartment is beautiful. Definitely booking to come back again same time next year

Fab holiday in great apartment. A*****

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with the lovely apartment. It was super clean and there was plenty of space for everyone and having 2 bathrooms (always piping hot water) was a huge benefit. All furnishings, linen, crockery etc were of a high quality. We all slept well in the comfy beds. We ate out most of the time (fabulous array of restaurants close by) but when we did cook and use the kitchen, it was well equipped with everything we could have needed. The complex has its own pool but it's literally a few steps and you're dipping your toes or having a swim in the ocean.

The location is amazing - we enjoyed walking to the town centre of Los Alcazares along the prom (bars along the way overlooking the sea if you need refreshments!). We also hired bikes (great little cycle hire shop in the town, very reasonable and a charming owner) to take full advantage of the prom that stretches for miles in both directions.

With lots to do in the area (we also hired a car to explore further afield), it was perfect for us. Highly recommended and we would be back in a heartbeat to sit on the balcony overlooking the sea. Fabulous.

Brilliant place to spend a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we were delighted with the accommodation, all the mod cons you could wish for.

The rooms were laid out well, and we could tell that a lot of thought was given to the tiniest details.

There are two main balconys, one off the lounge and one off the main bedroom which is upstairs. I found out from our neighbour that these balconys had recently been extended to allow for even more outside space.

Looking at those that haven't been extended, we were pleased that we booked this one. WOW, what a difference.

The apartment is about 1 minute from the beach, and just outside the complex is a great beach bar serving the best mojito's we've ever had and a nice selection of food also.

The main square in the town of Los Alcazares is about 30 mins walk, but as its all very flat, we found this great as it helps to walk off the evening meals. Also, for those still thirsty, there are loads of beach bars on the way....

Within the complex is a communal pool, not the biggest we've seen, but plenty big enough for a dip to cool off in the sweltering heat.

We did get a taxi a couple of times, and the security man sorted this out, and it was less then 10 euros, so we thought that was not too bad.

Overall, I would say this apartment and the local area is a real delight, and we will defiantly be returning for a follow up trip.

Better than expected

  • 4 of 5

Pictures never really do a place justice as I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it looked in person. Had a lovely stay, weather was beautiful, the apartment was immaculately clean and the pools in the complex were ideal.

Debra answered all questions we had before booking and was there if we needed her throughout our stay, which was very comforting and I can only thank her for her efficiency.

I have a thing about beds and how comfy beds are and I found the beds very comfortable to lay in. There is also great balcony space, so perfect for candle lit dinners and meals on an evening. The balcony upstairs is IDEAL for those who love to tan!

There are supermarkets local as well as beach huts with snacks / food and drink. There is also a really cool bar by the apartment and we spent a lot of nights there making full use of the very reasonably priced beverages. There is full kitchen supplies in this apartment which is good as I've been to others lacking, so we were able to get food in and cook a few of the nights.

The apartment is situated in a lovely area with lots going on. Food and drink prices are very reasonable with three course meals and drinks costing around €35 in some places. There is also a market that runs on a Friday with fresh fruit, veg and supplies as well as clothes, nik naks and other bits. We stumbled across this on our walk but it is around a 5 minute walk from the apartment when you leave it and turn right.

Bikes are also provided and we took advantage of them!!!

Definitely good for couples / families, couldn't recommend it enough.

Much talk has been circulating the internet with rumors about the up and coming major theme park that is going to be built in Spain. 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. In relation to specific details about the Paramount Theme Park, plans are yet to be announced in the next few months, but one thing is for sure, it will certainly be something that will give visitors a good reason to come and visit Murcia, and boost its tourism industry.
