Contact person friendly and helpful.
Pool sited below apartment, to sunbathe and cool off. Local restaurants walking distance, but taxi to more authentic only 8 euros, 16 to Los Alcázares. Definitely book again.
Really great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the area. Hope to welcome you hear again.
Amazing Apartment and Golf Resort
It’s always difficult to choose an apartment that suits a family with different tastes but this apartment was amazing!! It was so spacious, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, 3 spacious bedrooms with one huge ensuite, a kitchen which was better equipped than mine at home!, a wonderful pool which was really quiet (about 5 other families, and that’s amazing for summer holidays!!) our own sun beds to take down to the pool so no fighting over sun beds (in fact no one even went down to the pool until about midday!), under ground parking to keep the car cool, a huge terrace with a great parasol if you wanted the shade which overlooked the pool, great restaurants on site and also 4 or 5 great restaurants just outside the resort (about 1 mile walk from apartment). Not to mention great golf (or so I’m told by my husband and son!). The Resort was SPOTLESSLY clean everywhere!! The apartment is about a 5 min walk to the club house. The one and only downside is that you do need a car as the Spa shop (which is on the resort- which sells everything!) is about a mile away so quite a walk in the heat if you need to get water and provisions. I love walking but wouldn’t have wanted to walk back with a 5 litre bottle of water every day. You also need a car to get to the beach (or €15 in a taxi one way) or anywhere else. But we had a car so nothing was too far away.
Janice was lovely to deal with and was happy for us to check out later as no one was going in to the apartment on the day of our departure.
All in all a fantastic holiday apartment which I would definitely recommend. We would happily go back and I’m sure we will.
Lovely, well equipped holiday apartment
We had a lovely week here. The apartment is located in a quiet part of the resort and is very well equipped. The children loved the pool and my husband enjoyed the golf course. Beach and supermarkets are close by, although you do need to have a car. Recommend the day trip to Cartegena for a visit to the Roman ruins. Highly recommended.
Absolutely brilliant apartment
The reviews on this apartment are outstanding so I did not think that it could live up to them. However it is just as everyone else says- superb. Everything is there that you could possibly need and more. The supplies for the beach and pool are great. the apartment is spacious and very clean and beautifully presented. Janice is indeed great too. She is easy to contact and very helpful. The pool was very warm and so close. The apartment is in a very quiet part of the complex. There are pluses and minuses to this as it means that you are not close to all amenities but it was a pleasant walk to get to them. Find the cut through by the driving range! The onsite shop is very good with lovely fresh bread for breakfast and lunch. We would advise not going to the steak restaurant. The other guests are so friendly and they told us restaurants locally to try.
I can really imagine coming back to this apartment and would like to thank the owners and manager for providing such an excellent standard of holiday accommodation.
Very nice apartment. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped with a good sized private balcony. Janice was extremely helpful and professional with all aspects of the booking. The resort itself is well maintained and nice and quiet. Can't comment on the on site bars/restaurants as we went into local towns most evenings. Cartagena is a beautiful city (that feels more like a town) and definitely worth a visit.
Best equipped apartment I have been in.
Sorry for the late review but I have been snowed under at work until now. we arrived at lunchtime on Thursday 14/7 and as we walked into the apartment we we struck as to how well equipped it was and by the view from the balcony overlooking the pool. WOW! The apt was spotlessly clean and the rooms were large. The en suite in our bedroom was massive. Our teenage girls travelling with us loved their room even though they could have had a room each they wanted to share. The Mrs is a chef and she was pleased and surprised by the amount of pots/pans, crockery etc she had available. The apt is situated in a quiet corner of the resort about 10 minutes walk from the hotel and restaurants/bar. We had a great time and will return! P.S. Thank you Janice for your help when booking etc..
Always great to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay :-))
