About Graham and Claire Pycroft

We are a family of four who wanted somewhere in the sun that we could enjoy, that wasn't too far away from an airport and felt like home away from home.

Graham and Claire Pycroft purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Graham and Claire Pycroft chose Cartagena - Mar Menor

We first started the hunt for a home in the sun back in 2004 and after doing the usual property tours we came across a resort we knew little about...Los Alcazares.

It had all the the qualities that we were looking for in a holiday location.

We wanted to be able to get around without the need to hire a car, knowing that all the local amenities are only a five minute walk away.

Just as important to us was access to a blue flag beach with seas that gently slope away making it safe for young children and grown-ups alike.

We also wanted something modern, clean and bright, that gave us all the comforts of home, not just the standard 'furniture pack' pine, but still enabled us to enjoy the Spanish lifestyle and all that it offers.

What makes this apartment unique

We visited many properties up and down the coast but was always drawn back to the Mar Manor area. Once we knew the area then we concentrated on the right place.

We chose Los Alcazares because of its accessibility to the airport, 10 minutes from the airport to the apartment, the 7km long sandy beach and the fact that this is primarily a Spanish resort which still retains its festivals throughout the year. The resort has an abundance of restaurants, all local and numerous tapas bars line the beach should you wish to eat there.

The apartment overlooks the pool and the balcony is the ideal place for topping up the tan.

"Bolthole in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from an autumn break in Los Alcazares. It was the first time we have travelled to this area of Spain and it won't be our last. If you are looking for a comfortable place to "chill out" then we can highly recommend this apartment which is in a quiet and well maintained complex. The apartment is well equipt (unlike many apartments we have stayed in), very comfortable and overlooks the pool area. It is only a short walk (about 5 minutes) to the square where you can find a large supermarket and an array of shops, bars and restaurants. (We can recommend El Patio and La Diva.) The beach area is a further 5 minutes walk and there is numerous beach bars along a lovely promenade - great for an afternoon/evening stroll. The beach itself is very clean, (certainly not crowded when we were there). The Mar Menor is great for children and very safe to paddle and swim in. A 20 minute walk along the prom will take you into the old town of Los Alcazares. Local transport appears quite reliable and buses go to Cartagena and Murcia which are both well worth seeing. Stuart looks after the apartment for Graham and Claire and is very helpful. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful break away then we can highly recommend this apartment and resort.

Owner's Response: We are glad that somebody else has discovered this hidden gem of Spain. We try to provide the perfect place to relax and believe that Los Alcazares really does have it all. From the long sandy beach to the wide variety of restaurants which are perfect after a hard days chilling out. If you do prefer a night in then the apartment has been equipped to provide a home from home experience.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property! We have a very comfortable stay and the best nights sleep ever whilst on holiday (and this is a huge point to make because on many of our stays in other properties we just did not feel rested and looked forward to going home)! The property was very clean and nicely situated. It was a short distance from the main strip where there are plenty of restaurants and bars but not so many that it spoils the resort. Its about 5-10 mins walk to the beach and only a short drive from the airport (a car is not needed to get around unless your exploring further afield). Anne was also very helpful and came to pick us up on our final day. Would highly recommend this property and the area - so chilled out x

a fantastic base to enjoy the Costa Calida

  • 4 of 5

The Property was as advertised and made for a very enjoyable 3 month stay we even managed to get a sun tan from the balcony. The facilities of the apartment are first class (TV apart and for a long stay like ours maybe a bigger TV with accurate TV listings would be better) WiFi would be a fantastic addition and should be factored into the cost that said you couldn't fault anything else. We even managed to get all our washing done before coming home. Fantastic location wonderful beach and a great shopping / entertaining and socialising Plaza. Would we recommend this apartment / location? you bet we would but i would sooner keep this a secret!!!!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your response and glad you enjoyed the warmth over the winter months. We have updated the TV schedule within the guest handbook so hopefully all channels should be listed, unfortunately the Spanish TV listings do change frequently and sometimes not in the order we expect in the UK. We have installed a new LCD flat screen TV which can be used with the DVD player or PlayStation, for those times when a rest is needed from the sunshine! We have now added WiFi so guests will be able to stay in contact with home via Facetime or Skype or just surf the web whenever.

Los Alcazares is just 5 mins drive from Murcia Airport. This newly built apartment is situated approximately 10 mins walk from the 7km long sandy beach situated on the Mar Menor a large shallow salt water lagoon, ideal for children, separated from the Mediterranean by a strip of land called La Manga. The Mar Menor is popular for all types of water sports & bathers alike. The promenade is lined with Tapas bars to give a real Spanish atmosphere. It is a 5 minute stroll to the excellent Mercadona supermarket which is located in the new Baliniero square, which is home to a new 5 star hotel & numerous bars & restaurants.
