About the property

Piso Pomsol - Luxury apartment at Roda Golf - FREE Wi-Fi, beach towels and toiletries - Not only is it great for golf, it's great for kids and great for just relaxing.

Our luxurious 2-bed, 2-bath apartment on Roda Golf is beautifully furnished with lots of little extras to make you feel at home. Not only is it great for golf, it's great for kids and great for just relaxing. Everything you need for a fantastic holiday.

FREE Wi-Fi now available in the apartment.

It is also within a few minutes drive of Los Alcazares and the Mar Menor beaches, which are gently shelving and really safe for kids. The stylishly furnished apartment has full air conditioning, full central heating and electric security grills. There's a HUGE, south facing balcony where you can relax in the sun or shade all day. Dine dine Al fresco for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner or just relax with a glass of wine.

WHAT ELSE:

The apartment at Roda Golf was bought as our holiday home, so because of this, it has lots of stuff in that you wouldn't normally find in a rental apartment. Good pans, good knives, lots of crockery, cutlery and glasses. A large fridge - 'cos that's what you'll need to stock all the great fruit and veg from the area and lots to drink for the kids.

Our apartment has so much more than you might expect to make your holiday enjoyable. There are 2 sunbeds and 2 garden chairs, plus a beach chair, 2 lilos and other inflatables for the pool. Plus a sun umbrella and buckets and spades for the young ones to take to the beach.

There are duvets for the Winter, but also the option of blankets for the Spring and Autumn when you don't quite need such warmth. Plus fans in both bedrooms as, if you're like us, we don't like to sleep with air-con on overnight. . . . .

There's a visitors guide in the apartment so you can see what's available in the area - including a guide to the beaches, water parks, golf courses and entertainment in Los Alcazares and the Murcia area.

On arrival you will be met at the apartment by Mike and Bev the owners, who will show you round, make sure you know where everything is to ensure you settle in quickly.

We are based in Spain and only a short drive away so if you have any problems whilst you are in our apartment we will try to sort things out over the phone or come to the apartment where that isn't possible.

PLEASE NOTE: the 5th person is accommodated in the lounge on a single sofa-bed which is only suitable for children and small adults.

About Bev & Mike Pomfret

Bev worked for 30 years in the Financial Sector managing major IT Projects.

Mike was a marketing manager for a leading scientific glassware company.

Married for over 40 years, we sailed the Irish Sea and the Mediterranean in our yacht for 14 years but now only sail occasionally as more sedate pursuits beckon - so we play bridge.

Originally from Manchester, we bought a house in Spain to retire to which is located in a small Spanish village. However, it's old! So we are constantly working on lots of 'reformas' to make it into a place where we can relax and enjoy in our retirement.

Bev & Mike Pomfret purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Bev & Mike Pomfret chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We bought our apartment at Roda because of it's closeness to the Costa Calida and the Mar Menor. It's a fantastic place to holiday with it's superb beaches, historic cities to visit . . . not to mention the golf.

Roda Golf is a fully accredited PGA golf course - with driving range, putting green and lessons available for both adults and children.

BUT . . .

We are NOT golfers but bought it for the luxury and location so are living proof that you don't have to play golf to enjoy Roda.

It's close to San Javier airport - so just a 10 minute taxi ride will see you in the apartment. BUT it's not under the flightpath so you won't be disturbed by the noise.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment at Roda Golf was bought as our holiday home, so because of this, it has lots of stuff in that you wouldn't normally find in a rental apartment. Good pans, good knives, lots of crockery, cutlery and glasses. A large fridge - 'cos that's what you'll need to stock all the great fruit and veg from the area and lots to drink for the kids. You'll find inflatables for the pool, sunbeds and chairs for the garden, plus buckets & spades and chairs to take down to the beach.

There are duvets for the Winter, but also the option of blankets for the Spring and Autumn when you don't quite need such warmth. Plus fans in both bedrooms as, if you're like us, we don't like to sleep with air-con on overnight. . . . .

We hope you'll love apartment as much as we do.

Lovely, Well equipped and spacious apartment.

Lovely clean, spacious apartment. Really well equipped with a welcome pack which is a lovely touch. The pool area is lovely and generally quiet. A car is definitely recommended as there are lovely areas nearby to visit

Owner's Response: Thank you Nicky for your lovely review. The pools and gardens are fantastic aren't they? We love them. And I agree about the car - there is so much to see in the local area especially things like the Roman Theatre at Cartagena and the beautiful cathedral and architecture in Murcia city.

Fantastic family break

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic family break...close to the airport which meant the holiday started as soon as we got off the plane, great facilities in the complex and close to beaches etc. The apartment was exactly what we needed, everything catered for which made the day of arrival hassle free. Would definitely book again.

Beautiful,well equipped Apartment in lovely resort

  • 5 of 5

We selected the apartment on the strength of the website, the price and the resort location. We were not disappointed, great apartment with excellent, professional service from the owners, Bev and Mike. We stayed for eight weeks between 17/05/2013 and 12/07/2013.

The first floor property is well located in Phase 2 of the development, within easy reach of the communal recycling. It's very close to the pool areas and has everything necessary for an enjoyable self-catering holiday, including washing machine, dishwasher and lift! The complimentary welcome pack is a really nice touch, especially when you arrive in the evening.

We were impressed by the condition and cleanliness of the property. Please note there is an additional charge for cleaning at the end of your stay.

Although the property doesn't have a safe, the very solid front door and the electronic shutters give the apartment a very secure feel. There are also regular patrols by the Security staff.

The resort has a mix of permanent residents and holidaymakers. Expect a little noise from the apartment above and the odd rooftop terrace party.

We didn't hire a car but there is a secure underground car parking space. Bikes were made available (deposit required) and were useful for exploring the resort and the local area.

The resort itself is well maintained with gardens and pool areas in excellent condition although the perimeter of the resort could use a little more attention. There are no communal sun beds but the apartments comes with sun beds, garden and beach chairs.

There is an on-site shop for basics and the Clubhouse is worth a visit, not least for the free wi-fi. We didn't play any golf so can't comment on the course. There is also a Gym which does monthly memberships.

There is a property management company on site where you can hire baby and sports equipment. It also has Internet and printing facilities.

The airport is at most a ten minute drive from the resort. As the flight path is mainly along the coastline, aircraft noise is not a problem. The Spanish ‘Red Arrows’ also train around the area.

The supermarkets, Consum and Lidl are the closest to the resort and are within walking (or cycling) distance. The shopping trolley in the apartment came in very handy.

The main area for restaurants and bars is slightly further on in the Av. Río Nalón area. It’s pedestrianized with a superb selection. Close by is Los Palmeras beach.

Very happy with our choice and would recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Iain & Rosaleen for your fantastic review. It's always nice when our guests have enjoyed themselves ! Especially when it has been for a long break. After 8 weeks in our apartment you're probably the best qualified reviewer we're ever had! With regard to the gym, you can also pay by the class, the day or the week - so if you enjoy keeping fit there is no need to miss out whilst you are on holiday. Hope to see you both back again in 2014 - you never know we might even have Wi-Fi as it is something we are looking into. UPDATED 23/6/17 We now have Wi-Fi and a safe!

Excellently equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We received excellent service from the booking of our holiday with Bev and Mike to the departure. They gave us a warm welcome on arrival to their holiday apartment. The apartment in set in well kept surroundings. Bev and Mike have the apartment set up as a home from home, with an added bonus of a welcome pack. It has a secure garage parking space, which is also an added bonus. The apartment was situated close to the airport but not in the flight path so was lovely and quiet, and is close to the lovely sheltered beaches of the Mar Menor. The apartment was lovely and clean with the added benefits of two bathrooms and spacious living area. Bev and Mike have put extra thought into the guests stay by providing beach equipment, cool bags for day trips and beach towels, so that we were able to enjoy our two week break with hand luggage only. The Golf Clubhouse is really lovely, and we enjoyed a lovely meal in their roof terrace restaurant. We would love to return and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Hi Helen, Robbie & James We are so glad that you liked our apartment! We've tried to make it as comfy as possible for people to relax in - and the added extras are there so that you CAN just hop on a plane with your hand luggage only! We'd love to have you back again at Piso Pomsol. Bev & Mike

TRAVEL:

Getting to Roda couldn't be easier. The Costa Calida and Mar Menor is served by it's own airport at San Javier, which is only a short, 10 minute taxi drive.

It is also just 1 hours drive from Alicante Airport.

Car Hire isn't essential. BUT ... it is advised.

Los Alcazares centre is a 2 km walk and it will make all the difference if you want to play at other courses or see the beautiful scenery around the Mar Menor.

DISTANCES:

Mini-market for essential supplies - on-site

Clubhouse bar and restaurant - on-site

Nearest large supermarket - 2 km

Beach - 2 km

Bars & Restaurants - 2 km

Torrevieja Water Park - 35 minutes

Cartagena - 35 minutes

Murcia - 40 Minutes

Zenia Boulevard - 20 minutes (Largest shopping centre in Alicante - over 150 shops, a great selection of restaurants and a really well-equipped children's play zone).

ABOUT THE MAR MENOR AREA

Roda Golf and Beech Resort is not just for the golfer ................

Located on the Costa Calida, next to the Mediterranean Sea and only 2 km from the unique natural setting of quiet, shallow waters of The Mar Menor. The waters of the Mar Menor are renowned for their healing properties and the water temperature is warm enough to swim even in early Spring!

The setting of the Costa Calida and Mar Menor is truly incredible. With more than 253 Km of Mediterranean beach, around 320 days of sunshine per year enjoying annual average temperatures of around 21 ºC, the Costa Calida is the perfect holiday place for a relaxing break all year round.

The Costa Calida is the ideal spot to enjoy your holiday with all the cultural and biological richness of the region of Murcia. It is also one of the most important spots in the world for sports lovers, offering various water sports including swimming, sailing, scuba diving and water skiing, as well as activities such as tennis, trekking or golf.

LOS ALCAZARES

The nearest town of Los Alcázares is 2km away with a range of shops, bars & restaurants. The promenade stretches for 8km, the local blue-flag beaches are fantastic having won the Q awards for excellence & safety. The beaches are dotted with "chiringuitos" - bars selling a variety of Tapas dishes, refreshments & local beer!

LOS NAREJOS

The nearest beach at Los Narejos is just 2 km from the resort. Gently shelving and really safe for kids. Apart from the height of Summer, the beach is usually quiet and is my personal favourite. The beach bars serve reasonably priced tapas, snacks and burgers. Start from here to walk the promenade all the way to the Yacht Club at the other end of Los Alcazares.

SANTIAGO DE LA RIBERA

The fishing village of Santiago de la Ribera is just 10 minutes drive away. It grew as a prime holiday destination for wealthy Murcians who built their houses along the coast. Santiago has a lovely promenade flanked by attractive palm trees. Today Santiago is still popular with the Spanish for their vacations but also attracts tourists from all over Europe and although it has a modern air, it has still maintained its ‘fishing village’ atmosphere. It has a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

Santiago de la Ribera boasts a popular water-sports centre and sailing club so with it's superb safe beaches, sailing, water skiing, boat hire, wind surfing, fishing, cycling, a sports centre, and scuba diving ..... It's a great place to visit

LO PAGAN

Lo Pagan, near San Pedro del Pinatar, is a 20 minute drive and a visit is a must to take in the famous mud baths which has been renowned from early times for its healing powers. Get dirty ... by applying the mud all over the body and then dry out in the sun before washing off in the salt waters. The kids will love it!

CARTAGENA & MURCIA

Travel further afield to visit the roman ruins at Cartagena of the historic city of Murcia where you'll find amazing buildings and churches.
