MODERN 2 BEDROOM BUNGALOW CLOSE TO THE MAR MENOR

Los Alcazares Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A self-catering rental in Los Alcazares with air-conditioning close to the beach

This modern apartment within a secured complex, boasts a large living room complete with air-con / heating, Sky TV / DVD / CD player and a selection of CD's, DVD’s, books & magazines. The separate kitchen is fully equipped and leads out onto a separate rear patio. The spacious master bedroom features a double bed and the second features 2 single beds. Both rooms contain large fitted wardrobes with additional clothes compartments, bed side units, ceiling fans and large mirror. A safe, iron & board and hairdryer are also provided. The large terrace is south facing with a BBQ, 4 sun loungers, a patio table, parasol and chairs. The apartment is close to an array of bars, restaurants and supermarkets and is just over 5 minutes to the beach. There are numerous golf courses within a 15 minute drive.

Getting There: Fly to Murcia (San Javier) from the following airports: Manchester, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Liverpool, Cardiff, East Midlands, Leeds-Bradford, Birmingham, Southampton, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Prestwick, Shannon, Dublin, Guernsey & Kent. Murcia airport is 10 minutes away. Most other airlines fly into Alicante which is only 45 minutes drive away.

Markets & Festivals: Los Alcazares holds two weekly street markets, selling various products such as clothing and fresh food. It is an excellent way to meet and interact with the local Spanish community. It also hosts several festivals, including the international celebration of La Huerta. Throughout the last two weeks in August, groups representing market garden areas throughout Spain and other European countries gather to display their folklore, handicrafts and prepare gastronomic feasts from their local produce. Since 2000 the last three days in March has seen Los Alcazares take on a medieval flavour with a large medieval market and numerous events in recollection of the times of peace following the creation of effective defences against invasions of Barbary pirates during the 15th century. The town was afforded municipal autonomy on 13 October 1983. In celebration of this, each October the town puts on a week-long outdoor party featuring live music, shows and spectacular firework displays.

Visitors Comments: - Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday. The apartment was excellent, a real home from home & we also enjoyed the area, finding plenty to do. Some of your suggestions for eating out were really good, especially the tapas. We are definitely planning on returning at some point (Michelle Nov 05).

- Your apartment was lovely & everything was just perfect for our stay. Patio BRILLIANT. Sandra was a great help to us ferrying us to & from the airport so a big thank you extends to her too. The bars & restaurants were all handy & every one we tried was very good, we shall definitely return again & I will personally recommend your apartment in the future. Our holiday was everything we were hoping it would be (Cheryl Dec 05).

- Charlie & I enjoyed our holiday very much & the apartment was great. Everything was there that we required & I cannot think of anything that could be added to it. We hope to come back there around Spring next year, God Willing (Agnes Nov 05).

Lovely apartment on great complex

We have visited Los Alcazares 3 times, twice staying on the Albatross complex and this apartment has the best location. Ground floor and just round the corner from the pool so close enough to pop back from the pool for drinks, toilet breaks etc but with the added benefit of privacy on the lovely terrace which is a real sun trap. We have already requested to return next year. Great place to holiday for families, close to airport so no long transfers just a short taxi ride, close to the beach and a lovely promenade with some nice inexpensive restaurants and three local supermarkets with excellent selection. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for 2 weeks from 21/7/12 and found the apartment very clean,well maintained and in a great location. Mary made the whole experience very easy organising transport to and from the apartment and ensuring that everything went smoothly from landing in Murcia to leaving 2 weeks later. Graham,who Mary arranged to transport us to and from the airport, was very helpful, knowledgeable and able to answer any queries we had. We have been returning to Los Alcazares for many years now as we love the resort. The apartment on Albatross is perfectly located with only a 10 minute stroll to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the local bars and restaurants. For those seeking a truly authentic Spanish holiday, the old town is only 15 minutes walk away or you can get the land train, where there a number of authentic Spanish bars and restaurants including a couple of fantastic ones on the beach. It is better however if you can speak a few words of Spanish in the old town. The albatross complex is very clean and secure and has a great pool area which our kids (age 7 &5) loved going in every day. Overall a great holiday and I can't wait to go back in the near future.

Excellent location, apartment and service.

After previously spending two weeks within this complex the year before, I decided to come back having family and friends within the area. The apartment was fantastic, perfect for a small family or a couple going away. The lounge is an excellent size with TV having 55 channels (English & Spanish). There are large storage spaces in both the bedrooms & bathroom under the sink. The front patio has three sun loungers but being only a 5 min walk from the beach these were used very frequently. However, there is a nice space to eat lunch outside with a table and chairs.

This apartment was fantastic and would defiantly look to stay again. The key holders were also superb, friendly and helping out whenever needed. Mary was exceptional in sorting out the apartment for my brother and I. Very polite and friendly and I would recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking to stay within this region of Murcia.

Idea Base in Los Alcazarez

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 13, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
We stayed in Los Alcazarez in 2011 and liked it so much that we decided to return for a week in June this year. Having previously stayed in an apartment just across the Calle de la Isla de Tabarca that could best be described as 'basic', we decided to try somewhere more luxurious this time around - and we weren't disappointed.

The apartment is ideally located, close to three supermarkets and a host of bars and restaurants that line each side of the Avenida del Rio Nalon, a pleasant pedestrian thoroughfare that leads to the beach, which is within easy walking distance. Murcia Airport is less than ten minutes' drive away, so a car isn't essential - although we hired one so that we could get out and about during our stay. There is plentiful on-street parking, and we were able to park directly adjacent to the pedestrian entrance to the complex.

The apartment is located within a gated complex, so security isn't an issue, and is situated close to the pool in pleasantly landscaped grounds. There is a patio area at the front - ideal for sunbathing - and a walled utility area to the rear with a washing machine and plenty of room to dry clothes, towels etc.

There is a spacious living room/dining area (though we ate all of our meals on the patio), and the satellite TV meant that we were able to compare the weather in the UK (torrential rain, storm force winds etc.) with the wall-to-wall sunshine that we enjoyed during our stay. The compact kitchen was ideal for rustling up simple meals, whilst the air conditioning unit in the living room and the ceiling fans throughout meant that we were able to sleep comfortably at night.

The pool area was nicely laid out and well maintained, with a small pool for toddlers and a larger pool for bigger kids and adults. There was plenty of room for everyone despite the fact that it was half term week, whilst the fact that the pool area is situated a short walk from the apartment meant that we weren't disturbed if we wanted a lie in!

There are excellent shopping centres at San Javier (near junction 777 on the AP7) and just outside Torrevieja, whilst the historic cities of Cartagena, Murcia and Alicante are all within an hours' drive. As well as Los Alcazarez itself, which has a long, sandy beach and a variety of bars and retaurants, there are a number of other pleasant resorts nearby.

All in all we had a great holiday - it's just a shame that we didn't book the apartment for a fortnight!

Albatros Apartments - Los Alcazres

I rented this apartment for a fortnight in August for a holiday with my two children (8 and 11) and we had a great time. The apartment is lovely - it had everything we needed for our stay, and a lovely patio to sit out on. It doesn't look directly onto the pool, but this is quite nice as it means it is a little quieter. The complex is lively with lots of children to play with (although presumably not so many children out of school holidays) and is in a perfect location, as you can walk to the shops, restaurants and beach. We also took day trips to La Manga beach (best to go over on the boat across the Mar Manor as parking on the La Manga strip can be a nightmare), and also to a beach further up the coast, which was great, as it gave the kids some excitement in the bigger waves. All in all a great holiday.
