Villa, El Valle Golf Resort, Costa Calida / Murcia, Spain - The Perfect Location For The Serious Golf Enthusiast With Some Of The Best Golf In Spain
About Fiona Morgan
Barry and Fiona Morgan, married in 1990, we have 4 children aged 13-23. We love holidaying as it allows us to indulge in our favourite hobbies, namely - relaxing, eating, drinking and golf. There are numerous clean, safe, sandy beaches 25 mins drive away. It is very peaceful but close to the action! We drive into Murcia City quite a lot. It's a 20 minute drive from villa to car park. There are lots of fabulous restaurants and there is nearly always a parade or a procession of some sort. The Easter week celebrations are spectacular. The cathedral is also worth seeing. There is great shopping too. So there is plenty to do no matter what your tastes are.
Fiona Morgan purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Fiona Morgan chose Banos y Mendigo
This region of Spain enjoys on average 320 of sunshine each year! Easy and cheap to get to with the low cost airlines. We often pop over for long weekends. Murcia (San Javier) Airport only 15-20 minutes away, Alicante Airport 45-50 mins. 22 quality golf courses all within a 15 minutes drive. A good selection of safe and clean beaches (Blue Flag) within 15 -20 minutes, as well as a good selection of restaurants and bars. Great seafood and steaks. No high rise apartment blocks, no high rise hotels, and especially no lager louts. Set in an area of National Parks with mountain views. This is a very traditional area of Spain. 20 minutes drive from the historic Cities of Cartagena (with its port) and Murcia (with its river running through) both are beautiful, with good shopping.
What makes this Villa unique
As keen golfers, the Jack Nicklaus designed couse is a super course and after a round of golf we love to come back to the villa with the sun in the garden/pool all day long. The outdoor covered terraces and seating areas offer shade from the mid day sun. There is also an outdoor covered dining table and chairs to eat by the pool including a built In BBQ. The finish of the villa and furniture is of a very high standard, and we carry out maintenace every year to ensure our standards are upheld. We have great wifi inside and out keeping all age groups very happy! It is a 10 minutes gentle stroll to resort centre.

Damage and incidentals
Our week in Murcia
We had a good week at the property, however there were broken chairs in the garden which were snapped and could not be used and mould on the bedroom walls which was not a great first impression
The property needs some maintenance repair works to the pool as the tiles were also falling off
Overall we had a good week
A good Christmas break
Property had excellent outdoor facilities and plenty of comfortable space indoors
Thank you Carole , I’m glad that you and your family had a nice time over Christmas.
Excellent when you arrive the security guard guides you straight to the villa or it would take you some time to find it as the complex is large. The Villa was more than big enough for 4 adults a 2 small children. Spacious inside & out. The kitchen is well equipped and we had everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable. Air con works well and no need to leave it on when going out as it cools down very quickly. We found if you left all the shutters closed and used only the kitchen access to the outdoor area the villa stayed cool anyway. Golf resort shop was very reasonably priced. The club house serves good food and the staff are great with the kids, try the mixed fish sharing platter..fab. Only minor problems we had were there was no Wi Fi password code in the welcome folder but we text Sally (property manager) and she had the password to us within the hour. We had requested a high chair and there was not one in the property again Sally had it to us first thing the next morning. Great location for exploring Murcia and San Javier area. Thanks for a fab 2 weeks with the family.
A geat property
We had a lovely stay at this villa we really enjoyed our time here. The villa is well equipped with everything you need its beautifully decorated and set in a lovely location, there is a supermarket a few minutes away. The owners are also very nice and efficient in communication. The kids loved the swimming pool plan to go back next year.
The Villa is in great condition and in an excellent location. It has all the amenities and facilities that you would want, everything is kept very clean and the pool was fantastic for our three boy and ourselves to help cool off in the hot temperatures.
Villa owners were very responsive and easy to reach both during the booking process and whilst we were there with any questions we had.
We would if visiting El Valle Golf stay here again !
