Penthouse Apartment in Roda Golf and Beach Resort, Murcia, Costa Calida, Spain.
About Ian McQueen
We have owned this property from new. To date we have only stayed there about two weeks a year, therefore it is still like new. We chose this property because of the beauty of the local area. The Mar Menor offers excellent sun bathing and the whole area is traditional Spanish and not 'Benidorm'. We are not golfers and you don't need to be to enjoy an excellent holiday at this Resort. We live in the Brecon Beacons and as beautiful as it is it's nice the feel the Spanish sunshine on our backs.
Ian McQueen purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Ian McQueen chose San Javier
Because you get everything you need for a complete holiday.
What makes this Apartment unique
Spotless, comfortable accommodation. With beautiful weather. (And golf - if you play it!)
Pool / Spa
Not as expected
The apartment was not to our liking, however Ian was very helpful with the resolution.
The apartment is on a lovely quiet golf resort. The main ‘strip’ with bars and restaurants are about 20-30 min walk.
Lovely apartment next to a nice pool
Everything you need for a home from home experience. Helpful people to greet you. Lovely penthouse area and fully equipped kitchen.
A lovely Holiday
Have just returned from a lovely week in Roda Golf. The meet and greet service was excellent and subsequent help greatly received with a very minor issue. The apartment is very close to the village of Roda which contains a lovely Irish bar and local Spanish restaurant which is fantastic value for money. Los Alcazares can be walked to in 30 mins or you can take a taxi at a small cost. The pools and grounds are very well kept and are very pretty. The apartment itself has all the basic amenities and a lovely roof terrace accessed via the balcony. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return.
Great Spacious Apartment at Roda Golf Resort
Great spacious, modern and clean apartment with everything a family or holiday stayers could need. Lots of uk TV channels for all ages, books and music. Great position with choice of two great pools. Apartment stays cool whilst rooftop space has sun all day long for sunbathing. Addition of a BBQ would be great too. We loved our stay as it felt as good as being at home so no missing the 5* hotel as this was a great alternative. Clean and secure resort with lovely golf course. The clubhouse is a short walk approx 8 mins through the shortcut but take a hire car for, Cartegena with its lovely harbour restaurants and shops 23 km away. La Zenia shopping centre is good just down the AP7 too. Al la Carte menu is fab at the clubhouse with cocktail bar til late too. In/Out dining at clubhouse in picturesque surroundings. Murcia square has some amazing restaurants you must pre book for the Italian one and Hemmingways they are the best. Loved our stay and highly recommend apartment, the management team especially Mick and the resort and other residents and resort security and maintenance. Owners were a pleasure as well. If you come by car from Alicante airport and not San Javier then it takes an hour on AP 7 one road with two sets of tolls at 3.70 euro per toll.
Thanks for your glowing review - we will attend to the barbecue - keep safe!! Glad you had a great stay - Mac
Perfect sun trap on the solarium
A great, quiet place to stay for a complete relaxing holiday.
The excellent clubhouse is 12 minutes walk away for good food and wifi. Good restaurants and shopping nearby, all within walking distance.
Cartegena is well worth a visit, we went on the local bus, as we didn't hire a car as the airport is only a 15 minute taxii ride away.
Fabulous location !!
What a great apartment, everything we needed, well equipped and well maintained. There is under ground parking which we found really useful to keep the car cool. This is the perfect base for exploring the region. We spent the days visiting some great places including Cartegenna, Fonts Algar Waterfalls and La Zenia for shopping. Further afield you can visit Murcia and Valencia. Los Alcazarres has the typical strip of restaurants, however there are a few restaurants that we loved Rosalinds on the Roof Top, Camelions for tapas (very popular with the Spanish) and you must visit Santiago de la Riberia for a typical Spanish resort. Plus locally Roda Bar is very popular with the Spanish and has a great Tapas menu. The beaches on the Mar Menor are safe for little ones. But if you want a bit of action Player de la Horrandada has some fantastic waves most days. We have stayed on quite a few golfing complexes and this was by far the best. The amenities were fab and the pools clean and convenient. The local supermarket Lidl is just around the corner. You can hire a bike if you want to explore the area. The resort is 10 minutes from the airport but you don't have any air traffic noise. This really is a great place to stay and we will be coming back. Thanks Ian for letting us use your apartment. Regards The Davies, Louise, Andy, Kate and Erin.
The resort is approx 3.5km from the golden sandy beach of Los Alcazares which has an attractive promenade close to the town center. The Mar Menor (Minor sea) is a warm salt-water lagoon which does not exceed 7m in depth. Close by are many lovely beaches on the Mediterranean Sea.
The resort is conveniently located a 10 minute drive from Murcia (San Javier Airport), which is serviced by many budget airlines from the UK. Alicante Airport is approx 50 minutes drive. Car hire is recommended if you wish to explore further afield.
Los Alcazares is just a few minutes away by car but also within walking distance.
La Manga and Cartegena are 50 minutes drive. There are many interesting and historic places to visit all within an hours drive.
There is a small shop on site for essentials and a number of large supermarkets and shops in nearby Los Alcazares. The best shopping centers are at Dos Mares, in San Pedro and Es Pacio, Mediterraneo, Cartegena.
There are a number of fine restaurants in the area, most have outside dining areas.
The water and the mud in the Mar Menor have a high concentration of minerals which have been found to carry healing powers for people suffering from arthritis, rheumatism, tendinitis, joint and skin ailments.
