About the property

2 bedroom bungalow with stunning landscaped gardens and fabulous pool

Beautiful 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom bungalow, furnished to a very high standard.

This beautiful villa is set within a small and very exclusive resort known as Club Calida Beach.

Surrounded by fabulous private gardens and large swimming pool, the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Only a few minutes walk away you will find the local shops, supermarket, bars and restaurants and within 10 minutes walk you come to the amazing blue flag beaches of the Mar Menor Sea

This area is perfect for couples and families, especially with young children. The beaches are well equipped with a number of bars and restaurants serving typical Spanish fair such as Tapas and very fresh grilled fish and sea food – Don’t forget to try the Paella.

The waters of the Mar Menor are always warm due to its shallow depth and also being protected by La Manga del Mar, the unique strip of land separating the Mediterranean Sea from the lagoon.

The Mar Menor Sea hosts beautiful soft sand beaches and a lovely flat promenade that runs for many kilometres. As you stroll or cycle along the promenade you will encounter many beach side bars and restaurants serving some amazing fresh foods, the area is especially renowned for its fresh seafood.

The Mar Menor Sea is a vast lagoon measuring 27 km long, 9 km wide but only 7 metres deep at its centre, this makes it ideal for families and water sports enthusiasts alike, the waters are always warmer than the Mediterranean sea which is separated from the Mar Menor by the spit of land known as La Manga del Mar.

If you prefer the crashing waves of the Mediterranean sea then you only need to travel 5 minutes by car to Cabo de Palos which is a lovely working fishing harbour, also within 10 minutes is the stunning Calblanque nation park with is rugged coastline. Totally unspoilt and peaceful with many species of wildlife

Lovely complex, unscrupulous owners/management co

  • 2 of 5

Lovely clean and tidy bungalow and complex. With regards previous reviews, outside furniture looks new and we only saw one cockroach! Photos of outside and bathroom a little out of date. There is no English TV other than BBC World News and a couple of other news channels.

Surrounding area quite quiet, the liveliest place being the tennis club 5 minutes down the road - great for a drink or a meal and a bit of entertainment. 5 minute walk to a small supermarket and just a couple of minutes more to the beach - never busy.

Market at Cabo de Palos is good on a sunday morning. Playa Honda is another lovely beach on the Mar Menor.

However, PLEASE, PLEASE try and have the bungalow checked over BEFORE you leave as the owner/management company have held back part of our deposit for damage to the sofa. This was not caused by us and it took them 4 weeks to tell us, and only after we had chased 3 times for our deposit. This has upset us and put a huge black cloud over our memories of what was otherwise a fantastic holiday.

cockroach motel

  • 2 of 5

Very pretty complex, pool and surrounding area really lovely our first impression of the bungalow really nice. Then we discovered dirty ripped outdoor furniture which we had to clean before use, the roof terrace was unusable the table and seats were extremely dirty to the point if you sat on the seats it would ruin your clothes. BUT the worse was the discovery of a infestation of cockroaches in the bungalow , coming from the bathroom running across walls, everywhere we contacted the maintenance who called with traps and a sprays we spent our 2 weeks spraying this place to keep them under control we found dead cockroaches every day in the place, we are quite aware in hot countries do have cockroaches, we are not novices we have come across them before, but not to the extent like this

This did spoil our holiday and the owner did say it will be fumigated when we left the property, I really hope this did happen or no doubt some other poor guest holiday will be ruined

The area mar de cristal is lovely and the beach front playa Honda has also a really lovely beach

Visit Cartagena the buildings and the marina very pretty and Cabos market on a sunday is worth a visit

Would have liked the property to have been aired, a strong musty smell in twin bedroom. Outside area's could have done with a good sweep and wash down. Would have been good if we were told that Spain doesn't open until 1st June.....apart from those niggles the property and location were ideal.

Lovely bungalow in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely break, based in this bungalow. The location is very good, just 5-10 mins walk to local beach. Beautiful swimming pool in lovely setting of palm trees and gardens. Lovely just to sit outside (always quiet when we were there) and overlook the gardens and pool. The air con was most welcome and was needed during our stay. Ian is helpful and informative on arrival. We recommend beaches at Playa Honda and Calblanque, well worth visiting!. Go to Caba de Palos and find the La Tana restaurant for a lovely fish themed menu. Would recommend to family and friends.
