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!
Met and shown to the property by Frank who couldn't have been more helpful (and had already got us in some basic provisions by prior arrangement).
The property is well situated and house myself, my son and my father comfortably (one double and one twin room). Property has all facilities you could wish for including washing machine, air con, TV with UK channels, wifi and a PS3.
Nice area at the back to sit out and close to the pool though we were there for a golfing break so didn't do either. La Torre golf course is worth a visit and there are many outhers within 30 minutes.
Found numerous restaurants selling good quality food at very very good prices in Balsicas and RRoldan (each only 5 minutes away). Also a well stocked supermarket on site.
Had a fantastically peaceful break with the family - perfect for us (two adults and a pair of 7 year old twin boys). Lots of pool time, lovely apartment, pleasant walk to the shops and bars.
We decided to take the quiet option and did absolutely nothing for a week and it was just right. If we had a car to get out and about then it would be a fanatastic base for a longer, more exploratory break.
Highly recommended and looked after really well by the owner!
I had a week there on my own with my 12 year old son. It was superb. From arrival everything was organised, the apt. was walking distance to the restaurants and supermarket. We had a little garden, bikes and were very close to the pool. It was a huge advantage having air-con in both bedrooms in the height of summer, we needed it every night and not many apt's have the full air con. There was also a TV, playstation, internet access which was great with a 12 year old boy. The golfing for kids was excellent. Thank you to Jose Antonio, the pro. Really lovely apartment and lovely resort.
Very good apartment, well looked after, very close to the pool. The Gentleman who let us in was very kind and helped in anyway he could. It felt a little personal with all the owners belongings in cupboards but it was a holiday home so to be expected.
We stayed here because it was ground floor and having small children we will always use the outdoor space, however the grass had completely died so it was just mud and we were unable to use the paddling pool we took with us. A lot of the apartments have now got fake grass in the gardens this would have been brilliant! 5 stars apart from the garden! Would recommend :0)
Very nice, great location within the resort.
Had everything we needed and Owner had very kindly left us some supplies in the fridge!
Very reasonable rate for the week's stay compared with others on the same resort.
Lovely swimming pools, great facilities onsite with a couple of restaurants and club house.
Nice beach a short drive away.
Overall a great holiday, our girls 3 and 5 loved it!
The owner was very easy and efficient to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble. Very clean and well equipped ground floor apartment. Fantastic communal pools within yards!!
My family and I were all very happy.
Really enjoyed the complex and would certainly return and recommend to others.
Thank you Sarah :-)
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.
