About Vince

I live in the southeast of England with my partner of many years. My job requires a great deal of worldwide travel which may on occasions may mean a short time delay in any response. We love to visit Los Alcazares as often as possible and always feel we have arrived home. One day we plan to settle there.

Vince purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Vince chose Los Alcázares

When we were looking to purchase in this part of Spain we spent some time driving from Alicante around to the La Manga Strip. We found Los Alcazares to suit us best, with a superb promenade to stroll along with a number of local tapas bays, with a mix of international and local restaurants within the town. There are a large number of British people, but the area still has a very provincial Spanish flavour. Once we saw the Puerto Marina complex we stopped looking as this was perfectly located and appointed, which is the feedback we always receive from friends and guests alike.

What makes this apartment unique

On occasion we do not hire a car as everything you could want for a relaxing break is within in a 10-20 minutes stroll from the apartments. However there are a number of marinas, secluded bays, fishing villages and historic towns as well as the free saline baths all with a short drive. There is always a friendly atmosphere amongst residents and guests around the pool and garden areas which makes it enjoyable just to stay in and chill out.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment with everything you could need. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything needed including a fabulous juicer that we made lots of use of.

The sky TV was great, at the time we were there the Olympics was on, I am a big fan and managed to keep up to date with all the action. The double bed was immaculate and comfortable and the safe in the bedroom was a bonus. Plenty of towels and equipment to take to pool if required including childrens toys. A good choice of books and DVDs, read a couple and left a couple The air con was included in price so we tried not to abuse it and only used for an hour or so a day, the fan in the bedroom was great, that was used a lot.

The gardens and pool areas were kept spotlessly clean and never too crowded.

Some good supermarkets in area, we especially liked consum, gorgeous fresh produce, lots of choice and a decent price.

The main square was just a short walk away and was a lovely safe place to spend time, lots of families with children, and some great places to eat. We had a day at Cartagena and it was gorgeous, bus service was a bit hit and miss but we got there in the end.

The beach was a little bit further to walk but worth it, lovely warm water that never gets too deep, very safe.

Good information from owner and a fantastic file at apartment with lots of ideas and tips about area, we used that a lot.

The key holder Clive was really good, showed us around and told us what we needed to know and was always a text/call away if needed.

Would definately recommend this apartment

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

 

Really enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment, it is very comfortable and I would recommend without hesitation. The beds are comfortable and we slept well. It is well equipped with plenty deck chairs and loungers to take to pool. My boys enjoyed visits to the nearby Plaza for frozen yoghurt and free WiFi! The complex Puerto Marina is lovely and well looked after with decent pools. The beach is about 15 mins walk away and very busy at this time of year. I would recommend taking the ferry to La Manga to enjoy the big waves of the Mediterranean! We also found the public bus service good and visited Murcia, Cartagena, and Santiago de Rivera. There are plenty of great restaurants and bars to choose from in Los Alcazares. Thanks for a great holiday Vince!
