Las terrazas

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently and found this apartment to be perfect for us.

Well equipped, lovely and clean . It was so nice to wake up and have breakfast on this large ground floor terrace. South and south west facing makes it ideal for the sun worshipers or for anyone who likes the evening sun to sit, relax and even dine in.

Easy and friendly owners to book, and prompt payment of transfer.

We would definitely recommend this little gem.

A car is needed really and the resort would benefit by having more shops, bars and restaurants.

Excellent apartment. We will most definitely be returning. Had a fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have booked an apartment on this site and we will definitely be doing it again. Alison and Ian have made the whole experience very straight forward. They sent us emails letting us know where everything was to be found when we got there and directions from the airport right to the complex were so easy to follow we found it no problem. Angela, the key holder met us at the gate and made sure we got to the apartment. It is a lovely place and we really enjoyed the peace and quiet, sat on the terrace reading a book with a nice chilled drink!

There is plenty of places to visit around the area but you do need a car which you can hire relatively cheap. Would recommend a trip to Cartagena its beautiful.

There is a bar/restaurant on site as well as a supermarket though we didn't use them but there's a few supermarkets within driving distance.

We really enjoyed our stay here and plan to return next year.

Can't find anything negative about our stay. It's just perfect.

Thanks again Alison and Ian

  • 5 of 5

Very nice ground floor apartment, plenty of sun beds and room outside to enjoy them, south facing, so sun almost all day, apartment has a shower, instead of a bath, a great idea, communal swimming pool right in front of the apartment, this was our second visit, and will certainly visit again

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful holiday. The gorgeous accommodation was even better than described. Furnished to a superior standard with everything you could ever possibly need. Situated perfectly for exploring the surrounding area and beautiful beaches. Safe and clean with fabulous amenities and friendly staff in the complex. The only downside was having to leave and come home !!!Would highly recommend this apartment and communications with the owners was excellent. We will definitely return. Outstanding value for money, thank you for allowing us to rent your property, a very happy Scottish family!!!

FIRST CLASS APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic apartment that exceeded our expectations. Alison and Ian have provided everything that you could possibly need and more besides. The pool is directly in front of the property and is very well maintained and it never got to busy. Within 5 minutes walk of the apartment you will find the clubhouse which has live music some evenings. We ate there a couple of times and found the food to be good. The small town of Roldan is 5 minutes drive from the apartment and has a selection of bars and restaurants as well as a small supermarket. Thank you Alison and Ian - we hope to return!!

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: As this is a golf resort, childrens facilities are very limited, but the apartment is ground floor with a large grass area outside and the fenced communal pool with children's pool. The Mar Menor beach area is only 15 mins drive away with many activities i.e. diving, windsurfing etc, bikes are available for hire in this area. The beaches are blue flag standard with sand. The beautiful historic town of Cartegena is just 30 mins away with Murcia City a 30 minute drive. The on site golf course is "links style" and popular with guests, as are numerous other courses nearby. A supermarket and a pub serving meals on site is walking distance away. There are a variety of restaurants in a 15 min drive of the apartment, we would recommend visiting Santiago de La Ribena of a weekend evening time, this is a very local part of the Mar Menor and has a great atmosphere. The Espuna National Park and the monastery/hotel are also worth a visit. Outside: Terrace area of apartment more than 320sq ft gives access a good sized grassed area and a large unheated shared pool. Our terrace has a large dining table & six chairs allowing alfresco dining. We have also included a 2-seater sofa, coffee table and two armchairs for relaxing. In addition four quality sun loungers with pads to top up your tan are provided.
