La Manga Club Los Olivos - Central location ideal for Families, Golfers, Couples, walk to bars,restaurants & shops, 5 min beach
With 4 children it was important to us to have a guaranteed sunny break, with flexibility. We love having the choice of dining out, or simply barbequing on the balcony. The flexibility meant we didn't have to rush from the pool to dine out if we wanted to simply chill, eat alfresco and wander out for drinks & entertainment later. As the children got older, we were able to still watch them in the pool from the balcony. (30 seconds to get to the pool if necessary!) Also relaxing with a drink on the balcony knowing the younger children were safe in bed was priceless. We holiday here four times a year during Winter & Summer months as the Seasons here are wonderful. We love the Climate, food, flexibility, facilities, space and tranquility.

Why Kathy1158 chose Cartagena
We purchased Los Olivos 14 years ago. We have a busy working, family and social life, with four children ranging at the time 2-16 years (now 18-32). The tranquility helps recharge our batteries, and energize. Our apartment is centrality located, with sea views overlooking the main swimming pool. Built to the highest spec the Penthouse is desirable and sought after. This property is ideal if you peace and quiet, but want restaurants, bars and entertainment at your figure tips. We didn't want to get eat out every night so lovely to stay in, bbq and enjoy the views on the balcony. The 5 * hotel also offers class live entertainment, which is highly recommended. With Security at both entrances of the resort, this gives invaluable peace of mind.
What makes this Apartment unique
The benefits of this property are location, spacious, centrally located on the resort, making wherever you wish to be quicker and easier. La Manga Club in some parts is quite hilly, and can be quite a walk, but Los Olivos is perfectly placed. The shops, bars, cafe's, restaurants and the hotel is within easy walking distance. Having three balconies, this property offers Winter sun all year around, or Summer sun with shade on the front, or a balcony off the main bedroom for some peace and quiet. Los Olivos also offers two pools and an indoor heated pool with jacuzzi if renting in Winter months.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a wonderful stay at this property. It is really well appointed ,equipped and very comfortable. It has a fantastic sun terrace with great views of La Manga and the mar menor in the distance it really is a nice spot. The owners were extremely helpful and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this apartment as a great place to stay. The indoor pool for us staying in the winter was a massive bonus!!
Fabulous apartment and location!
This apartment is ideally located within the La Manga Club to have easy (walking) access to the pool, tennis courts, many bars, shops and restaurants. The view from the main balcony is wonderful - a great place to sit and take in the scenery over a coffee (or something a little stronger!); having one balcony at the front and two at the rear, you're always guaranteed to find a sunny spot. Ample car parking is available right next to the building. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to help towards making a very pleasurable holiday. Kathy and the management team were all very approachable, helpful and quick in answering any questions we had.
Very spacious apartment with magnificent views. Great location for the tennis club
The property is in a Great location especially for the tennis club. The views are stunning. The apartment is very spacious and has everything you need. Ideal for 2/3 couples to share. There are 3 balconies so plenty of space to relax and enjoy the views especially from the front balcony overlooking La Manga Strip in the distance. We are definitely going to book this apartment again.
Great location and would certainly recommend Club La Manga
Central to restaurants and activities, the apartment was clean, bright and perfect for our one weeks stay at La Manga. Would recommend for families as very close to central communal pool that is supervised daily by life guards. Apartment is great for relaxed evenings on the balcony overlooking La Manga strip or for a base for exploring.
Great property with amazing views out to sea. Apartment has everything needed for a great holiday - including 2 fridge freezers. Would have given 5 stars but cleaning wasn’t great when we arrived.
Thank you for your review Janet.
