Guestbook comments from the owner

A really great villa. This was our third visit to the Mar Menor resort, and Villa Ombu is as good as it gets.... Nice spacious 4 bed villa, lovely and clean, and very well equipped. Great location on the resort, being just a short walk from the spa and other facilities. The communication and information from Janet was superb, very helpful and useful. We stayed as a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children - ages 6 + 9) and everything was perfect for us..... Temperatures in the daytime was around 30-34°C and the air conditioning in each room was perfect in the evenings / overnight. The garden and pool was also perfect for us, as the fence can secure the outside dining area & garden from the pool / sun lounge area (great when children are in your group). Another good thing with the pool is the gradient of the floor.... not too steep..! (we've had pools before that are so steep you get out of your depth so quickly and almost without knowing it....). WiFi was faultless.... we all use various devices and rely heavily in WiFi for music, etc.... Janet was extremely quick at returning our deposit..... which is always nice... Overall we can't recommend it enough..... shame the weeks we would like next year are already booked....

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The villa is a second home for the owners rather than just a rental property and the decor and furnishings reflect this.

The garden and pool area are completely fenced for both privacy and safety with a grassed play area for children.

Outside: The patio area is perfect for outside dining - it is fully tiled and there is a very private large south facing garden, a grassed play area and a private 9 x 5 metre swimming pool which can be heated and is fenced for safety. The pool is a salt water pool which is much kinder to skin and hair and avoids the use of harsh chemicals. The pool and shower area are fully tiled with non slip tiles and both the patio and pool area can be illuminated at night. There are tables, chairs, parasols, sun loungers and a BBQ. Both upstairs terraces are furnished and have lovely views of the golf course and mountains. Utility Room: Washing machine, iron and ironing board. Clothes airer, mop and bucket and central heating boiler. BBQ equipment, cool bags, picnic plates and glasses etc and beach umbrella. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The villa is cleaned prior to your arrival, bed linen and towels are provided. Beach towels are not provided. Additional cleaning/change of linen and towels is available on request and payable locally. Other: Glazed patio (conservatory style) with sliding doors, furnished to create second lounge area.

First class

  • 5 of 5

Returned to this villa for the third year running with 3 generations of the family. All was perfect. Well maintained, excellent facilities, this year we even had pool towels provided. This was the 4th villa we tried on the resort, and it's by far the best, so we won't be trying anywhere else.

Any minor problems are resolved immediately by the local property agent. Lots of pool inflatables and games for the kids. Every home comfort and we want for nothing. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance, but we prefer to drive to Los Alcazares where there are many good places at reasonable prices. Very helpful owner deals with all formalities perfectly.

Golf Break

  • 4 of 5

A lovely property overlooking the third hole of the Mar Menor golf course. Set in a quiet gated community, this is a great base for a golfing break with the Mar Menor golf club house just around the corner and the La Manga courses a short drive away.

Booking through Janet was very straight forward and problem free. Her property has everything you could possibly need including a small supermarket just a 5 minute walk.

I'll definitely be going back

Fantastic golf villa on Mar Menor Resort

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ombu is a lovely 4 bed villa in a quiet road in the Mar Menor Golf resort. We had never stayed before and from the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be a lovely place for a relaxing break.

The villa is perfect for 2 families holidaying together or for a large group with plenty of bathrooms as well as the 4 bedrooms.

The villa has everything you might need to self cater but why would you? On site there is a fantastic Spar supermarket which sells amazing pastries from opening at 9am, perfect for breakfast. They also have lovely fresh breads which we picked up daily for lunches. The shop sells virtually everything you can imagine and has a well stocked wine seller. Despite being on resort, the prices are not over inflated and the fresh produce especially is delicious. We picked up steaks to BBQ one evening and they were delicious.

Within the Mar Menor resort there are various restaurants, The Steak House, an Italian, a Mexican and the Intercontinental hotel's own fine dining restaurant. We tried the 1st two listed and they were great. Just outside the resort in walking distance is "El Boulevard", a strip of restaurants including Route 66 which was a favourite of our children.

My husband really enjoyed the local golf courses. He played Mar Menor (his favourite), Roda & Torre and has been recommended La Serena for next time.

If you hire a car then the Los Alcazares/Los Narejos beach is gorgeous. The sea is the warmest I have ever been in and a good spot we found was outside "Jonnys Bar" where the beer is on tap and the toilets are free. You can hire sun beds for €3.50 a day. The 525 Plaza is also a place to visit, you can taxi from the resort or if you drive there is plenty of parking opposite the 525 Hotel (this is also a good place to park for the beach). Restaurants we recommend would be El Patio 2, Rosalinds Roof Garden & Heming-ways - all need to be booked in advance and you can do so online or by email.

We love this area of Spain, it's full of Spanish which can only be a good thing and will definitely be returning again.

Great family/friends holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family/friends holiday. Two family's shared the villa. It was a home from home, equipped with everything thing we could need, and lots of space to spread out. All the furniture etc was modern and up to date. The house was clean, tidy and had all mod cons. The owners were great to deal with, very helpful prior too and on holiday. They provide a very in-depth file with all the information about resort/restaurants and days out in and around the surrounding areas. My family loved the resort restaurants, especially Route 66, and bars. The supermarket was a few mins walk away and was stocked with everything we could need and was very reasonably priced. The beach was a ten min drive away and boosted lovely cafe/bars and restaurants. The beach was also lovely and quiet. I would recommend this as a family friendly relaxing get away, catering for all ages. Loved it thank you, and both families will be returning.

Can't recommend too much. We will return!

  • 5 of 5

The property is maintained to the highest standard and we felt "at home" as soon as we walked through the door. Lots of space and all "mod cons". Instantly into holiday mode and nothing to spoil that feeling. We could have stayed around the pool all day but ventured further on site and found the "essentials" such as an excellent shop for provisions and bars for lunchtime beers and tapas.

We felt we had to explore further and found places of cultural interest (Murcia and Cartagena) and wonderful restaurants in Los Alcazares. Beaches are brilliant and a visit to La Manga was sublime. Can't praise this place enough, book early or you will miss out on a terrific holiday. We hope to return with grandchildren very soon.

The owner was great to deal with, no waffle just straight forward help and advice. Airport just down the road, lovely local people and not over commercialised. We enjoyed every day.
