Los Alcázares Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed 2 bathroom large solarium 5 mins to golf course & close to the beach

Our apartment is only a 10 minute drive from San Javier (Murcia) Airport and is a duplex penthouse apartment with a large solarium and panoramic views across to the Roda Golf course and Mar Menor (meaning ‘little sea’) from one side and overlooking the shared pool and lazy river on the other. The apartment is situated on the much sought after Phase 1 which means it is only a short 5-10 minute walk through the beautiful Roda Golf garden walkways and past the golf course to take you to the Club House, a fully equipped gym and a small shop as well as being very close to the gated entrance to Roda.

The apartment itself is fully air conditioned for the summer months and has central heating for the evenings in the winter. It is 4G WIFI enabled. The two bedrooms are for up to 4 people sharing and comprise a double with ensuite bathroom that includes wc, sink, bath and shower, and the twin bedroom with a bathroom next to it that has a shower, wc and sink. Access to the apartment is via a lift or stairs.

The lower balcony catches the sun in the morning during the summer and is a lovely place to sit out and have breakfast with beautiful views of the pool and lazy river. The solarium benefits from the sun all day and there is a dining set on the solarium that means that you could enjoy al fresco dining. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a 32” flat screen TV in the dining/lounge area and a 20” TV in the double bedroom. We have provided melamine kitchenware, pool floats and beach towels for children and there are family play areas on site. Cots and high chairs can be made available for hire if required.

If you are thinking of playing golf the PGA Roda Golf course designed by ex pro Dave Thomas and opened by Sam Torrence gives you year round access to the 18 hole par 72 course with lakes, tree planting and fountains. The greens are planted with grass that lies dormant during the winter months and turn from green to brown/beige during this time, but are fully maintained and popular with golfers during the winter season. It would be advisable to contact Roda Golf Course directly for fees and booking.

A short walk to the left out of the main gate takes you to the Roda Bar (very reasonably priced food and drinks that locals and visitors enjoy). A 5 minute car ride takes you into Los Alcazares Nord with bars, restaurants and shops; this area is walkable and takes about 20 minutes (advisable to take a bottle of water in the summer months). You could go to the Mar Menor beach that slopes very gently out into the warm sea. A little further along Los Alcazares aim for the beachfront and we would highly recommend trying La Tropical (tapas) and L’Encarnacion (tapas and silver service restaurant) with beautiful views out over the Mar Menor. L’Encarnacion also put on a Flamenco night on a Sunday where students from the Flamenco School in Murcia entertain. Enjoy a day out in Murcia exploring the old city or have a fabulous day out at Terra Natural Wildlife and Aquatic Park where you can enjoy ‘Zooimmersion’, where you walk through the park and experience the animals as though you are at one with their habitat. At the same time you can experience fabulous water slides and lazy river, sea lion and falconry shows – well worth a visit: Natura . A twenty minute drive in the opposite direction take you to Cartagena, a historic and naval port founded by the Carthaginians aroud 220 B.C. and among the many Roman ruins there is a second century B.C. theatre and Casa de la Fortna, a villa with murals and mosaics. You can hire a catamaran or boat and take a tour around the port and stop off for a bite to eat at many of the tapas bars, restaurants and then have a little retail therapy around Cartagena town. We would recommend finding an authentic Spanish tapas bar further into town. A short ferry trip takes you to La Manga del Mar Menor which you can see from Mar Menor beach and you may have heard of and want to visit the famous La Manga Club .

Short summary:

Excellent location on the much sought after Phase 1 with easy access to the Golf Course, Club House, Gym and convenience store, Duplex Penthouse Apartment with marble floors lower balcony and large solarium with new easier access staircase. Panoramic views.

Year round PGA Roda Golf Course only 5-10 minutes walk from the apartment with solarium overlooking the course.

San Javier town, whose boundaries include Santiago de la Ribera on the shores of the Mar Menor, has grown in size and has merged with the town of San Pedro del Pinatar to the north.

San Javier has an interesting museum to visit, called the Museo de San Javier. It contains information about the history of the town and more surprisingly an aeroplane!! There are various exhibition rooms which are dedicated to different topics such as nativity scenes, agricultural and fishing implements and lots of books, charts and displays relating to the Spanish air force, for which San Javier has been a base for many years. From our apartment the Spanish Airforce equivalent of the 'Red Arrows' practices and we often benefit from free aerial displays including hearts created by smoke in the sky. The town centre is based around the church and the weekly street market is held every Thursday morning in the streets near to the Parque Almansa Auditorium. The town is becoming well known for its Jazz Festival which it has hosted every year since 1998. The Festival is declared as being of Regional Tourist Interest and is normally held during the month of July in the Parque Almansa Auditorium.

On the outskirts of San Javier, near Lo Pagan, is the modern Dos Mares shopping mall. There is ample free car parking and all the usual selection of shops, The Dos Mares is a great rainy day option, or you can visit just to shop, eat and enjoy the activities.Places of interest & ideas of things to do in San Javier: Town Centre: large plaza around the church. Market: large Thursday morning.

Museum of San Javier: interesting artefacts.Jazz Festival: declared of Regional Tourist Interest it is held annual during July. Dos Mares: shopping mall and entertainment complex. Spend the morning exploring San Javier, visit the free museum and then drive the few kilometres to Santiago de la Ribera and take the B&F Ferry across to the other side of the Mar Menor. The boat journey takes about 40 minutes in each direction; you can either stay on the boat or enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants at the marina before heading back. Combine a trip to the Thursday morning market in San Javier with a stop at some of the other towns and villages that line the shores of the Mar Menor. Punta Brava is an excellent choice as it has a great viewpoint from where you get amazing vistas across the lagoon towards the La Manga Strip and to the mountains of the Sierra Mineras behind. Take a trip to the Mud Baths in Lo Pagan. Enjoy the therapeutic waters where the visitors rub the mud into them from the Mar Menor, let it dry to enrich the skin before washing it all away and feeling alive again.

About Deborah Spooner

Jeremy and I live in a small town called Stokesley in North Yorkshire and have lived here for 4 years now. The photo we have uploaded is of us just after we got engaged in the Club House at Roda and in December 2014 we got married and spent a month at Roda for our honeymoon in January 2015 as we love it so much because we can just completely relax. Jeremy is a lawyer and I am a former Midwife and Lecturer. We are now working together from home.

Deborah Spooner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Deborah Spooner chose Cartagena - Mar Menor

Roda was chosen very carefully and it was bought off plan. Phase 1 is a much sought after phase as it is so close to all the amenities and this particular apartment was chosen for its large solarium and the views, as well as having the sun all day long. Whereas it was felt garden and middle apartments did not benefit as well from the sun. The area is so well known for being very healthy whether it is the mud and salt flats or the sea, there is always a lovely breeze on the solarium coming from the Mar Menor (little sea). We absolutely love visiting Cartagena and we have a favourite tapas bar there. It really is a home from home and couldn't be a better place to get engaged and then spend our honeymoon as we know it so well. We even joined the gym which is only 5 minutes walk away and 'tried' to stay healthy.

What makes this apartment unique

We feel that the location is the really unique part of this property. The walk along the beautifully planted walkways with a lovely water feature just before you go to into our block, the large solarium which is beautiful in the sun as well as when it is star lit. The proximity to everything really, only a few minutes walk to the Golf Course, Club House, shop and gym and the short drive to the Mar Menor. We absolutely love the fish counter at the Mercadona supermarket and cannot wait to put 'Dorada (or sea bass') onto the BBQ sitting outside with a bottle of wine. We found on honeymoon some of the best local eateries, but we have also been involved with more touristy adventures and in particular the circus which, if it is in town, is not to be missed. We have been to the water park /zoo in Murcia which was fantastic. We just love it!!

Realmente perfecto

  • 5 of 5

Han sido unas vacaciones geniales. Ya conocíamos las comodidades del Roda Golf, una urbanización privada perfecta para el reposo con todo lo necesario para disfrutar bien sea en las instalaciones deportivas como en la piscina.

El apartamento es realmente perfecto. Para empezar, todo estaba muy limpio. Con todo tipo de tedalles. Las habitaciones muy cómodas y la cocina totalmente equipada. La terraza superior es realmente un lujo. Con todo lo necesario para poder hacer una barbacoa o para tomar el sol tranquilamente. El detalle de bienvenida es algo que siempre agrada. También tiene garaje que es muy útil para llevar el equipaje. Nos atendieron muy amablemente y se han preocupado por solucionar cualquier problema.

En resumen, un apartamento perfecto, muy limpio y muy bien equipado.

Esperamos repetir.

Gracias por todo.
