Great choice for a relaxing break!

  • 5 of 5

Can't fault the apartment, comfortable and with everything you need. Upstairs sun deck is a real bonus and the pool area was very quiet. 10 minute walk to lovely beach with three beach bars serving tapas and lunch. Great restaurants in Los Belones (5 minute drive) and Cabo de Palos (10 minute drive). Marian was very helpful with our queries. Victor from Dublin.

Lovely relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very spacious, lovely and clean and very well equipped for a self catering holiday. The private roof terrace has a great view of the local area and was a perfect sun trap for lazy sunbathing days! Also lovely for evening al fresco dining! Its location is within easy walking distance to local amenities and a great sandy beach where we spent most of our days. We hired a car to get around and found it very easy to find from the airport. Overall a very relaxing laid back break. Would love to revisit, thank you.

A relaxing warm sunny stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with my boyfriend for his birthday, we wanted to relax so spent our time mostly on the Solarium relaxing with a book. Beach was only 5 minutes away, lovely to have a coffee in the morning and go for a stroll along the beach front. Great restaurants available too, ate out every evening tastey steak and pasta. The apartment and complex is idea for a couple or a family as the pool is great for kids. I would also recommend a visit to La Manga club, the pool was great for small children, sun beds were 8euros to hire for the whole day. Again great restaurants and bars.

Worth a visit!

Faultless, relaxing and just what you want

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely faultless holiday apartment. I stayed in penthouse for my birthday on a couples holiday with my girlfriend and was very pleased with our choice.

The kitchen is lovely and modern with a fridge, freezer and dishwasher - after all, no one wants to do the dishes when they're abroad do they? Everything was there as you'd expect (plates, cups, bowls, knives, folks, spoons). Kettle, gas hob, oven. Perfect if you go for a self-catering option.

The kitchen and living room area is all open plan and the aircon unit is a lovely essential to ensure you remain cool in La Manga's hot climate. The living area has a book shelf and a wide range of complimentary books - I read Bobby Robson's autobiography! There are two sofas and a coffee table and an LG flat screen TV, complete with English telly (if you did want to watch the ITV News at 10, you can do!)

Open up the patio door and you come to a nice balcony area, given you good views of the hills - but even more impressive is the stairs leading up to the roof terrace. Once at the top of the apartment, you really do get great views- and up there you will find sun loungers (essential for tan addicts) and a table where you can serve your paella! Bliss!

Back downstairs, the bathroom was nice and clean. Either side of the bathroom is a bedroom. Two bedrooms, both with two single beds, one room where the beds can be pushed together to form a double- this room had aircon (we used the other room to store our clothes!)

The location was ideal if you like a quiet and relaxing life! It was a 5-minute walk to the beach/supermarket and also a few beach side restaurants. To enjoy a greater selection of food, it's a 25-minute walk to Los Belones (or a 5-min cab at around 8-10 euro)

Overall, a luxury accommodation, much enjoyed - and I didn't even mention the swimming pool within the complex- lovely! Would def go again.
