The apartment is overlooking a lovely garden complex with communal swimming pools with children's section. The apartment is spread over 3 floors. On the top floor is a large private roof terrace complete with sun loungers, table & chairs for 6 & BBQ. On the second floor you have two double bedrooms one with a king size bed and the other with twin beds, one bathroom with corner bath, toilet & shower.

One double bedroom with twin beds, one shower room and toilet. Please note smoking is not permitted anywhere in the property or on any of the balconies or roof garden.
Beaches: The gently sloping shallow waters of the Mar Menor means it is much warmer than the Mediterranean. You can walk out for many metres with the water still only reaching your thighs, making it much safer for young children.
Water sports are available along the coast -sailing, windsurfing etc The Mar Menor is known for excellent snorkelling & scuba diving with only a short drive from a national underwater reserve area.
Restaurants & bars: Los Alcazares has lots of restaurants a large number are within walking distance from the apartment. There are a good choice of bars from Spanish to Irish, English, German etc.
Golf: Los Alcazares is ideally located for a perfect Golf Holiday. La Manga is only a 15min drive with other well known courses of La Finca, Real Club de Golf Campoamor and Las Ramblas.
The apartment was perfect, light and airy with lovely balconies overlooking the pool area which was beautifully maintained. We particularly enjoyed barbecuing in the evening sun on the rooftop terrace.
The resort centre and supermarket were both a five minute walk away from the apartment. I would particularly recommend it for families as the resort has a varied selection of good restaurants with live music playing in the square most evenings. The owners provide a file in which most of the local restaurants can be found, our particular favourite was El Patio just two minutes away from the apartment.
The beach was a ten minute walk from the apartment with a good choice of beach bars serving excellent tapas and cold beers! The sea was clear, relatively shallow and warm making it ideal for families with young children and very popular with the Spanish locals. The promenade stretched for a few miles along the beach making it great for cycling, walking or buggy pushing!
We spent three weeks here with three teenage boys and as already stated we have booked again for next year, we can't rate it highly enough!
Lots of plus points first - Location : 5 mins from Plaza, 10 mins from Beach, less than 10 mins from Airport. Pool : great for families. Security : very good. Rooftop : great for sunbathing & lunches. lots of room in apartment and lots of balconies. Shopping trolley : this came in very handy.
Really enjoyed our time in Los Alcazares/The Apartment. just a couple of minor niggles. Think the place is fine, but probably needs a wee bit of TLC eg. lights & lamps not working, air con not working in one of the bedrooms, sunbed cushions need replaced, shower button broken, spruce up the rooftop a bit - coupla plants, wall plaques, a light, parasol doesn't fit the base so keeps blowing over. Minor niggles but easily fixable. Like I say, overall, really enjoyed our stay, and when we contacted Trevor about the DVD player not working, he replaced it the next day.
Supermarkets are great and the restaurants/bars are superb.
Didn't have one bad meal from fish & chips @ Pearls Place at one end of the scale to Rosalinds Rooftop at the other end. Highly recommend Hemingways for good service and food.

We visited the apartment as a family, (2 x adult, 19 year old and 16 year old) mid July 2013. The apartment was very clean and in good order. Having the 3 balconies and roof terrace gave everyone their own space. The kitchen was well equipped and no complaints with all the electrical equipment provided. Around the pool there was plenty of space including shaded areas to relax. At night there was absolutely no noise at all from other residents. It is in a secured complex with a key gated entrance.
The position of the apartment is within a 5 minute walk to the down and 10 minutes to the beach. There are plenty of restaurants and a choice of supermarkets.
I would definately recommend the appointment to the older generation/young and families.
I will certainly be visiting this apartment again in the future and thank Chris (owner) for her good communication with regards to keys and wishing us a good holiday etc. Keep up the good work!
We have just returned from a fantastic stay the last week of May 2013.
Firstly the apartment is fantastic, we are a party of 4 adults and 2 children and the apartment more than catered for our needs, very spacious with excellent balconies and wonderful roof terrace (perfect for bbq's). The apartment is fully equipped with everything you could need for your stay, large fridge freezer, and even a microwave was a bonus, I can't say we found anything missing and it was a home from home. Sky TV was brilliant for our little one to get away from a bit of sun and the games etc provided entertainment for our 10 year old. We found it a little cool at night, so the extra blankets came in very useful. The apartment was clean and airy upon our arrival and everything ran smoothly (key exchange etc).
The pool area is excellent and well maintained, brilliant pool for little ones and shallow end for paddling in. All other holiday makers were really nice and friendly and all the children played together in the pool, such a relaxing and perfect place to stay.
Los Alcazares is a perfect resort for families, within a few minutes walk of the apartment is a square full of restaurants with outside dining, a couple of music bars but nothing roudy at all. The beach is approx 10 minutes stroll from the apartments although we only went once as it was quite windy.
All in all we had a perfect holiday, and will be returning for 2 weeks next year!
Our second stay here and have already booked again! A home from home especially for a family of 5 with 3 boys. It was immaculate and Trevor and Pam the contacts in Spain couldn't be more helpful
The apartment is as described. It is spacious and modern. The air con worked better than last year and gave great relief from the heat wave. The air con is coin operated 1 euro for 2 hours.
The pool has strict rules and a life guard that adheres to those rules, no jumping in or ball throwing, you must have a shower and tie long hair back. The kids still had a great time despite the restrictions.
There is a Lidl about 15 minute walk away or a local supermarket 6 mins away. We preferred the local supermarket.
There is a pedestrianized strip of restaurants all the way down to the beach. I have yet to have a bad meal. The photos of the apartment on the web should also show the restaurant strip as it really lovely!
The beach is 10 min max walk through the strip of restaurants. It was busy in August, but still has plenty of sunbeds to choose from. Christine made the whole booking so simple, she also gave us contacts for a second apartment on the complex and our family were able to join us. They were so impressed they too have re-booked. You can't fault it, we love it there!
My husband and I stayed in this apartment which was exactly as described. We had a wonderful time, going out for walks, sitting on one of the balconies reading and swimming. The apartment was very well situated within easy reach of the supermarket (lovely wine for 1.65 euros) and the beach, although we did tend to spend more of our time in the pool.
Although there were just the two of us it would have been lovely to take our grandchildren there. They would have loved the pool area.
Christine made the whole experience of booking so easy and her contact for the transfer from and back to the airport was excellent. 30 euros return journey.
We would definitely recommend this apartment and complex.
The town of Los Alcazares is situated in the Murcia region of south-eastern Spain known as the Costa Calida. The town sits on the western shore of the Mar Menor, a salt-water lagoon separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a 22km strip of land called La Manga. Golfers will be delighted that no less than 7 golf courses can be found within a short distance. There are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants for drinks, tapas, meals and entertainment. The surrounding area is flat, great for cycling & walking. The warm water of the Mar Menor makes the town a haven for bathers and water sports enthusiasts. This is a popular Spanish tourist destination and offers excellent access to the airports (Murcia & Alicante) and motorway network. Murcia, the capital of the region is just 30 minutes drive and well worth exploring as is the Roman City of Cartagena. La Manga golf & Sports complex is a 15 min drive from the apartment.
