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.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've been to the apartment at least once every year for the past ten years and it's like a home from home. Everything we need is in the apartment and it's a short walk to shops, restaurants and the beach.

The patio is a sun trap and I love relaxing there reading. It's just round the corner from the pool so you don't hear anything from it and it's not far to go to.

Los Alcazares is a perfect holiday destination and this apartment is ideal. Mary is lovely to deal with and always helpful. The complex is well cared for and very clean. We will be returning in December and have already booked for next year.

First Visit to Los Alcazares

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time visiting this part of Spain we stayed for 10 days and had a fabulous time. Great apartment and it is situated in an excellent location. Short walk to great restaurants and not much further to a beautiful beach. Mary emailed us very useful information before our visit which we found most helpful. The property manager was so helpful, collected us from airport and was there if we needed anything.I would highly recommend this apartment, everything went so smoothly and we hope to return in the near future.

Lovely apartment, fully equipped in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Los Alcazares before and this time wanted to stay in an apartment. This was in a great location and suited our purpose brilliantly. The apartment has everything you would need and I would thoroughly recommend it. Communication and the key hand over was friendly and easy which really helped. As we were researching purchasing a property Internet connection would have been a very welcome addition, however we tracked it down in the bars so it wasn't too much of a problem. A wonderful base for exploring Murcia.

Nice comfortable bungalow.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. Bungalow is very neat and tidy and has a lovely sun terrace where you get the sun all morning until late afternoon. For those who watch the soaps etc the English tv channels is a godsend. Hope to be back in the very near future. Thanks again Mary for the wonderful stay.

Lovely apartment on great complex

  • 4 of 5

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.

Los Alcazares

  • 4 of 5

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.
