Ideal for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and nice. Pool was the best we saw in the area, big and not overly busy, often had it to ourselves. Balcony over looking pool was relaxing too. The supermarket was big, a 3-4 minute walk and very reasonably priced. Fair walk to the plaza where the main restaurants are but manageable( about 20-30 minute walk). Beach was ideal for small children as it was shallow, it is a 15 minute walk. Would definately recommend this apartment and area. It's not overly touristy and a lot of Spanish live and holiday there. The market on a Saturday is fantastic . Wouldn't think twice about going back again, our family thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your favourable comments. We find the area ideal for families as we find also that the beach is great and the Spanish love to holiday here so it does have a real Spanish feel. We look forward to having you stay in the apartment again.

Relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday here in July. The eather was perfect and we spent most of the time at the beach which was a short walk away. Just sitting in the beachside bars wathcing the world go by was so relaxing.

The apartment was lovely, quite large with a big balcony. Many a night was spent sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine. The well stocked supermarket was only a 3 minute walk so all in all everything you would need from a holiday was nearby. We even got picked up at the airport as the owner had arranged this beforehand. We would recommend this apartment and area to other people and will be looking to return again in the near future.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this lovely apartment. We just love it! It is so relaxing and you feel like it is your second home. The apartment is larger than we thought it would be, it has everything you would need and the kids were pleased with the satellite TV as it kept them entertained whilst getting ready to go out in the evening.

There are lots of restaurants to choose from, we mainly opted for the Plaza which has numerous good eating places. We noticed that there are several new restaurants that have opened but didn't get around to trying them as we always wanted to try our favourites again, being Bayside, Flavour and Rosalinds. The Indian one, Royal India, was very good as well.

The beach is beautiful, one of the best we've ever been to but this time we hired a car and went a bit further afield. The beach at Pilar de la Horadada had been recommended and it was only a 15 minute drive with a beautiful wide stretch of beach and a clear blue sea. The kids really enjoyed the waves which tend to get bigger in the afternoon, as although the Mar Menor is lovely (especially with small children), there are no waves at all, it is like a millpond. We also had an enjoyable day in Cartagena which is a harbour with fantastic views from the hill. Well worth a visit.

Great holiday and I'm sure we'll be back again as there are still places we have not visited.

Lovely break

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in this lovely part of Spain. The apartment was large and very well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. The balcony again was very large and overlooked the pool which lit up at night. The beach was a 15 minute walk with a lovely promenade and plenty of beach bars serving tapas and ice cold drinks. We preferred to walk to the Plaza in the evening which is about 20 minutes walk where there are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, our favourite being Bayside. The Oasis Centre is only a 10 minute walk and that also has several restaurants and a couple of bars. Supermarket was close by in the commercial centre which also had a few shops and eating places.

We did not hire a car as we were picked up at the airport which the owner organised for us. This was so easy as it was only a couple of minutes from the airport and we were shown into the apartment so didn't have the risk of getting lost. We loved it so much we have booked again for October but although we didn't miss having a car as everything was in walking distance, we may hire a car next time as there are plenty of places we could visit.

Holiday apartment in Murcia

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was clean and spacious with very good self catering facilities and a good sized balcony overlooking the pool. An added benefit is that it is only a 5 minute drive from the airport.The area is quiet, with the beach no more than a 10 minute walk away. At the beach is a calm and warm sea, which is excellent for children.

There is a good eating and drinking area within 10 minutes, but the main shopping area 20 minutes walk away has an even greater choice of eating and drinking establishments.

Within 5 minutes is a shopping mall with a supermarket, cafe newsagents and clothes shops.

Just up the road towards the beach there is a Saturday morning market with loads of bargains and fresh food, highly recommended. Just avoid any food stall which does not advertise their prices.

We can recommend the bus trip to Cartegena, good value to an historical site, and bustling town, where there is a superb Roman amphitheatre.

This is a good value destination if you have a youngish family or just don't need a lively club scene we will definitely go back.

Owner's Response: So glad that other people can enjoy this lovely part of Spain as we fell in love with it the minute we arrived. It has everything you could need from a holiday as long as you don't want the nightclub scene.

Lovely area of Spain

  • 2 of 5

Very disappointing as the pool was not in use for the entire week. No prior warning of this. It was late April and I intended to swim every morning. Apartment very comfortable and near to all amenities. Very peaceful area.

Owner's Response: I was very sorry that the pool was not available for use for these guests. We had no prior knowledge that this would happen - apparently it was for essential maintenance and repair and obviously there is never a right time to do this but it has to be done. To acknowledge their disappointment and to try to make amends, I have offered these guests a substantial reduction in any future booking they may make.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The beaches of the Mar Menor (meaning smaller sea) boasts 7km of tree lined pedestrianised promenade, with many beach and tapas bars along the way. It is a 10-15 min walk but well worth a visit as the warm waters await you.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Murcia (San Javier) and is a 2 min drive. Although the apartment is very close to the airport, it is a small airport and only about 8-10 flights come in per day and never through the night. Alternatively, Alicante is a 50 min drive. Transport can be arranged for you at an additional cost if you so wish, but taxis are easily found outside the airport.

Distances:

The old town of Los Alcazares is a 20 min walk where you will find many restaurants and tapas bars. You will find several more restaurants nearer than this but it is worth a visit. There is a market just 2 mins walk from the apartment which is held every Saturday and well worth a visit. Visit the ancient Roman city of Cartagena which is a 20 min drive and sit in a bar by the harbour or climb up the hill to the fortress there. The historic city of Murcia is just 30 mins by car.

Further Details:

There is a large supermarket and shopping complex just 2 mins walk from the apartment.
