La Torre is located 20 minutes from Murcia airport and an hour from Alicante. The resort is made up of an 18 hole Jack Nicklaus golf course, restaurants, supermarket, tennis courts, driving range, club house and 24 swimming pools. Ours is a beautiful ground floor apartment with garden overlooking the 10th hole and just a few metres from the pool, it has a small green outside with a small children's playground. It sleeps 5 in proper beds and 1 extra camp bed. It has full air conditioning, British and European TV, DVD, Playstation, Xbox, WiFi, use of bicycles and golf clubs. It is a 10 minute walk to the town centre where you will find restaurants, a supermarket and the club house. There is a free tennis court about 10 minutes away. It is south facing, peaceful with a separate dining area which is enclosed behind glass curtains. These can be opened in the summer to allow for more outdoor space and dining.
One of the bedrooms has a large king size bed. The other room has a single bed and then a set of bunk beds. We also have one camp bed which can also be used and there is room for a travel cot.
One bathroom with a full size bath, power shower with a glass screen over the bath.
This is a full kitchen with all appliances such as cooker, hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
The living room is exceptionally large and has 2 sofas that will comfortably sit 5-6 people. There is a large TV with an Xbox and playstation and has all UK channels.
Pete and I have 3 young boys who are 8, 9 and 10 and this is the perfect place for us! They have the freedom to ride on their bikes, swim, play golf, have an evening stroll for ice cream ! We have tried to create a home away from home environment where they can still have their downtime.
We live in London so it is a great contrast and we always come back feeling relaxed, revitalised and reconnected which is not often the case when holidaying with kids. We also enjoy going for long weekends as a couple. Door to door from Luton is about 5 hours for us so makes a great getaway. We enjoy the Spanish bar and the Irish bar, both walking distance!
We have tried to offer fair prices in the school holidays as we know what it feels like to be ripped off!!!
Sarah Wilkins purchased this apartment in 2010
We love that it is so quick and cost effective to get too from the UK. We love that the resort is upmarket and does not have the 'Brits abroad' culture but has a great blend of Europeans from many country's. It has enough in the evening to do, restaurants, bars and a little dancing all walking distance but no nightclubs etc.
We can also get everything we want on the site but when we do drive we love the local beaches, quad biking, bird of prey walks, cycling and yachting! You also have 2 very cultural cities, Cartegena and Murcia nearby. It is ' real' Spain!
My family and I spent just over a week at the beginning of August and whilst we are not huge Golfing fans, we absolutely loved this resort. The resort was big, extremely clean and my two girls found that they had more that enough to do to keep themselves busy and occupied.
The apartment itself was a very comfortable size and can best be described as 'being home from home!'. It was clean, spacious with a DVD player, a games console, wifi and all the essentials needed for a day or night in. We will definitely be returning again, in fact we were hoping to return next year only to find that August is already fully booked!!!
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at La Torre.
The apartment is perfect for a family of 5 and has everything you need, all the comforts of home, family friendly and Frank (the keyholder) who is very helpful.
You do not need to be a golf fan to love this resort it is beautiful and maintained to a high standard. The pools closest to the apartment are perfect for children and adults alike and never overcrowded. We liked walking to the town centre and the golf club to eat, drink and occasionally boogie! and took advantage of the free taxi service to the local Indian restaurant. We also encountered a very friendly tennis coach who made great progress with my 8 year old twins in 3 lessons!
The local beaches are only 20 minutes away and are great, all the surrounding area is very "Spanish" rather than very "touristy!" which we really like. We also tried out the dive centre at La Manga which was great success.
We would definitely recommend this apartment and we are hoping to return next year.
We had an amazing holiday with everything you could possibly ask for! Resort with beautiful grounds, plenty of activities for the kids and adults alike, and a welcoming and cosy apartment that had all the comforts of home. The beach was just a short ride away, and even a day out horseback riding was relaxing and enjoyable. The location was spot on, the pools and kids play areas throughout the resort provided hours of fun and entertainment, and the onsite bars and restaurants in the Town Centre were perfect for evening drinks and dinner. Wouldn't hesitate to return, a great time was had by all!!
Lovely roomy apartment with direct access to a spacious green (via its terrace area). Good sized swimming pool a stones throw away and golf course, restaurants, shop and other leisure facilities just a short walk away. Very well kept and pretty complex and airport not too far either. Whole heartedly recommend!
We have been back twice to this apartment which just shows how much me and my son like it. As a single dad going away with my son it is nice to have the home from home comforts such as wifi and UK Tv and of course the playstation and Wii, which are a winner! We enjoy spending the days by the pool, or hitting some balls at the driving range, and my son has even taken group golf lessons, meeting and making friends with other children his own age. The evenings are great, as being on my own can sometimes be a little difficult in hotels, but the town center is full of families, kids, grandparents etc. and we always feel at ease. I also love to run and there is a great 5K route around the site. We take advantage of the free tennis and also the free pick up service for the local Indian restaurant which saves me driving. Finally we also love the local beaches where we enjoy snorkelling together and also my son took some sailing classes this summer in Cartegena. I am going back again this Easter for a week and am considering taking some friends so we can try out the diving which is available within about 30 minutes drive.
My friend and I spent a week here at the beginning of August and the flat and location were perfect for us. Everything from the moment we landed and were greeted by Frank (keyholder) to the moment he waved us off a week later was superb.
The flat is brilliantly located on the site and has a great view as you sit outside in the garden or the dining room. The pool is a 30 second stroll away but thankfully far enough away from it that you aren’t disturbed by any noise. It’s a 10 minute walk to the supermarket which stocks everything you could possibly need and 10 minutes to the town centre where the bars and restaurants are. I would highly recommend the Irish Bar and Bamboo for the evenings and the Woodhouse Bar for a spot of lunch.
The whole resort is beautifully landscaped and picturesque and there is something for everyone even if like us girls you aren’t a golf fan!
We had an amazing holiday and we are planning our return trip for summer 2014. I would definitely recommend Sarah’s flat to all of my friends and family. It was great for a girls week away but it is also definitely a fantastic family friendly flat and resort.
It takes about 20 minutes to drive to the Mar Menor beaches where you will find very shallow calm beaches, great for children. Alternatively it is less than half an hour to the Mil Islas Med beaches, great for body boarding and lots of waves.
It is recommended to have a car, but you could easily spend a week on the resort without one. Murcia airport is about 30 Euro in a taxi.
The beautiful town of Cartegena with it's port is about 30 minutes drive away and Murcia is about 40 minutes. These are lively Spanish towns with great culture, restaurants and shopping.
The onsite supermarket offers a very varied selection and is reasonably priced. It is walking distance from the apartment.
Within an hours drive you can go mountain biking and quad biking at Espuna Adventure. There is also a beautiful bird of prey sanctuary within the hour and the water park with the night safari.

We have tried to be as fair as possible by not charging anymore during school holidays when families are always being charged over inflated prices :) There is a one off charge of 80 Euro payable to the key holder for cleaning/laundry and, who will meet you at apartment to show you around. You also pay him the remaining 50% or you can transfer that in the UK before you go if you prefer.
We require a £100 refundable deposit and 50% to secure the booking. The remainder is paid to our key holder upon arrival.
