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 Murcia
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.

Nice Villa, Nice Complex, but had some issues!
Villa Morgan is a nice villa on a nice complex. The restaurant on site is really nice, and good value for money, but there is only one, so you need a car if you want to go back to one of the main resorts.
Our holiday didn't start well, after an early flight from Gatwick we arrived at the villa, but there were no keys. The owners hadn't notified the management company that we were coming, and whilst they dealt with it quickly, it meant we had to leave the villa while it was cleaned. Not an ideal start, and although quite stressful and worrying at the time, not the end of the world.
After 3 nights, we lost hot water. We thought it was to do with the washing machine, so left it, but the next day still nothing. I contacted the management company, who sent a boiler engineer the next day, who informed me the gas meter had been removed! No gas meter, no hot water! The owners were notified, who informed me that it was a mistake and would be rectified within 48 hours. Although they offered to move us to another villa, we kept faith that the issue would be sorted, which unfortunately wasn't the case. The water was finally restored on the day we were leaving, so overall 7 of our 10 night stay was without hot water, not what I expect from £150 a night. Whilst apologetic originally, the owners have failed to respond to my emails or offered me a night or two money back for the inconvenience.
In summary, a nice villa, but couldn't rate more than 3 due to the issues we had!
