Stunning! We love this place.
Beautiful villa! My third stay at this place, can’t fault it. Great location on the club, situated in Las lomas, very peaceful with gorgeous views - we had a car which is useful if you are on this side of the club and need to go shopping but you can either take a walk to the other facilities on the club if you’re feeling fit, hire bikes or make full use of the courtesy bus that runs across the club throughout the day/evening which we used when we were going out for dinner. Just visit the reception at las lomas which is a minutes walk away from the villa and ask them to call it for you. Also a taxi ride anywhere on the club is just €5. We were a family of 8 this time, and the villa was perfect for us, very well equipped and I especially love the pool for our small children as the mushrooms separate them from the deeper end. Everything is on one floor which again is perfect for young children as no stairs to worry about.
Pleasure dealing with Jane again, she was very informative, helpful and friendly.
We can’t wait to go back!
So very glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa 12 and look forward to seeing you again next year.
A group of 6 adults spent a week in this beautiful villa at the beginning of June. Jane was very helpful and quick to respond to our queries throughout the booking process. She was there to meet us on arrival and ensured we were happy with using the facilities. The villa was clean, extremely comfortable and very spacious. The outside, where we spent most of our time, was amazing with lovely terraces & sun beds to enjoy the fab views. A great size pool which we chose to heat and was well worth it for the time of year. We even swam late evenings and having an outside shower room was so useful after using the pool. There is a large table and chairs to enjoy a more shaded area and ideally situated close to the kitchen to serve meals outside. The kitchen was well stocked with extra fridge, great for drinks. The lounge has plenty of comfortable seating and is bright but always keeps cool. Bedrooms had plenty of storage space and beds were comfortable. Bathrooms spacious having showers over the baths. There is everything you need in this Villa to make a perfect holiday, whether with a group of adults or as a family with children. It is positioned in a quiet private area and within walking distance of the Italian restaurant and coffee shop but you do really need transport. We always enjoy returning to the La Manga resort, the men love the golf and the ladies love the ambience and relaxation the resort offers. We would highly recommend this Villa and look forward to returning again in the future.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the villa and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Week of fun in the sun
Had a great week in the sun, it was peaceful until we arrived with 5 kids 2,4,10,13,20. One thing that you cant see in the pics is a barrier that prevents little ones going to the pool when they shouldn't, a must. The bbq area is excellent, Jane supported our stay and went out of her way to provide cot / baby chair etc and stayed late so I could collect the keys.
Would go back, a great time was had by all - thanks
Many thanks for your review Clive. I am really glad you had a great time and may be see you back at the villa in the future.
We booked this villa for a family stay over Easter 2018. The villa was beautiful, and we had the pool heated for the duration of our stay. The pool made the holiday for our grandchildren. It was light, airy and spacious. Before our stay we had lots of contact with Jane Whent and she was very helpful indeed. She organized food for us on Easter Saturday, and found out what supermarkets were open on Easter Sunday. Nothing was too much trouble and she made our visit so much more problem free.
Thank you for your review Yvonne. So glad to hear you all had a lovely holiday and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Stayed for the last 2 weeks in August. There were six people in our party, 4 adults and two teenagers. The villa was spotlessly clean and very spacious. The pool was one of the largest we have seen in a rented villa and was great fun. The villa contained everything needed for a comfortable stay, even a decent paella pan. The views from the villa are lovely, reaching to the sea and to Cabo de Palos lighthouse as well as over the North golf course. Our only point to note is that some more outdoor furniture would have been welcomed, e.g. some sofas and chairs with some shade placed at the end of the pool, or in the pergola area in the lower garden. The welcome and check-in service from Jane at Murcia Villas was seamless. The La Manga club resort is fabulous, with bars and restaurants close by and the cove beach provided superb snorkelling. On site supermarket was well-stocked and reasonably priced. The golf courses were in superb condition (we played the South and the West), with the start points for both being walkable from the villa. Overall, a top-class family holiday and we wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Lovely villa in a peaceful resort
We recently stayed here for 2 weeks and didn't want to come home!! There were 6 adults and 3 children (11, 8 and 2.) The villa was very spacious and was set in large grounds which included a large pool and gardens around it. It has everything you could possibly need: hair dryers, toaster machine, dishwasher etc. The cleaners came once when we were there and did a great job of cleaning the villa. The pool was maintained on a regular basis and was always lovely and clean. There were some restaurants, spa facilities and a children's playpark within walking distance but a hire car is essential if you want lots of choice of restaurants and shops. It was a very peaceful area and we had a lovely relaxing break here. Jane, from Murcia villas was very helpful and was quick to answer any queries we had. We would definately recommend this villa.
The Costa Calida region
Nestling at the bottom of the Costa Blanca, the Costa Calida is one of the least known and most unspoilt regions of Spain, guaranteed to give you a taste of real Spain.
With over 315 days of sunshine every year it is little wonder that the Costa Calida means warm coast and the unspoilt inland waters of the Mar Menor, the largest natural lagoon in Europe, offer safe and warm water bathing all year round.
The area is best know for the La Manga Club resort, renowned for its three championship golf courses, LTA Tennis Centre Training Ground and being the training ground of visiting football teams from Spain, the UK and the whole of Europe. There are over 22 tennis courts with the option of booking tennis coaching on an hourly or weekly basis. Short tennis, squash courts, bowling green and pitch and putt to name but a few of the sporting attractions. The hotel is a fabulous 5 Star hotel and more, with poll bar and now the newly opened Spa. Spoil yourself with a treatment from a manicure to the full 90 minute signature Lavender Massage with facial. For the evening there are over 25 restaurants and bars to dine in and to relax and enjoy yourself. These range in style and price from the Amapola Restaurant at the Hotel which is superb but a little expensive to Si bar for inexpensive dining with family entertainment.
The area has more to offer than just La Manga Club and it is an excellent place to explore and get a true taste of Spain, plus there are 6 further golf courses of an excellent standard, and a further 12 under development.
La Manga Strip ... the sleeve of land that runs from Cabo de Palos in the south to San Pedro in the north is 18km long and encloses the warm tranquil waters of the Mar Menor to the west and has the livelier colder Mediterranean to the east. The Strip is up to 1km wide in parts and in others is is merely 100m allowing only for the road to run through with a beach on either side. La Manga Strip is a town in its own right, albeit an long thin one! There are shopping centres, restaurants and bars set in plazas or squares. The marina at the Puerto Tomas Maestre is beautiful and houses some stunning boats and yachts that most of us can only dream of, but the restaurants are great and the atmosphere is wonderful.
The La Manga Club / Individual Villas, La Manga Club area
The famous La Manga Club Resort has so much to offer a family holiday. Three 18 hole championship golf course, the North, the South and the West Course. There are 28 tennis courts, clay and hard courts, 3 squash courts, 2 gymnasiums. There are over 25 restaurants catering for all tastes from the exotic such as Asia and India Restaurants to Italian and Spanish or just good old hamburgers and chips from restaurants such as Uncle Sams and Si Bar. La Manga Club is also famous for the famous visiting football teams, from Arsenal, Real Madrid to National Teams such as Holland, England and Finland. The footballers take advantage of the fabulous spring time weather to use the year round pitches and also to use the fully superbly equipped gymnasium at the Spa at La Manga Club, plus the indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi and therapy rooms.
The Spa at La Manga Club is well worth a days visit and is a great day out. Enjoy or struggle through one of the exercise classes, use the fantastic gym and then flop by the large indoor pool with sauna and steam room. If you book a treatment, eg a massage, body scrub or one of the many other treatments you can use the jacuzzi pools. These vary in temperature and intensity. You can stand under the jets or sit in the jacuzzi and let the bubble surround you.
Once on resort there is no real reason to go off, as there are two supermarkets, banks, pharmacy and even a medical centre. But you will be missing out of a treat and a rare thing in Spain, unspoilt traditional villages and coastline. The Costa Calida and in particular the Mar Menor is the area where the Spanish take their holidays.
The warm shallows of the Mar Menor are safe for children and very warm. The mineral salt concentration is very high and you can almost float unaided. La Manga Strip is incredible with 18km of sandy beaches on the Meditereanean side of white sands that go on and on, and small coves and inlets on the Mar Menor.
Watersports, there are sailing schools, jet skis for hire, windsurfers or take a pedlo and peddle like crazy around the islands of the Mar Menor.
Cabo de Palos is only 10km from the La Manga Club, and has a large Sunday Market, one of the largest in the area. Here you can buy leather goods, clothes, olives and pistachio nuts and fantastic fresh fruit and vegetables. After you have exhausted yourselves and your wallet relax and enjoy a lunch on the harbour side. As you would imagine fish is the speciality, sardines and paella are especially good sitting out and watching the traffic (boats only) coming in and out of the harbour.
The vibrant town of Cartagena is 20 minutes away. There are a number of other tourist attractions which are really fun to do, I would recommend the open top bus ride and the trip around the harbour on the catamaran. If you do not want to have a history or culture lesson then the shops are fantastic, and it is a great place to buy clothes and especially shoes and handbags. Then take a long and lovely lunch over looking the harbour in one of the many cafes and restaurants on the front. The town itself is friendly and safe.
Venture further up the motorway to Torrevieja to the water park. Fun, scarey and wet!
At Murcia is the all new Terra Natura. This is a zoo park with rare and unusual animals in large natural enclosures. You can literally come face to face with bear cubs behind a glass screen, wolves and lion, giraffes and zebras. There are lots of animals to see in this carefully constructed and ultra modern zoo. That is the first part, the second part of Terra Natura and on the same site is the water park. Great fun and with almost no queues. There are not as many slides as in the park in Torrevieja and the queues are almost non existant (unlike the water park in Torrevieja) so you get lots of turns on the slides. The slow river is fun to float around in and there is an excellent series of shallow pools with climbing frames and slides. Only the brave will be able to face the enclosed steep slide.
