Fabulous en-suite rooftop (2nd floor) master bedroom (double bed), with access to the solarium, a second bedroom on the first floor (2 x singles) with a family bathroom (bath and shower), plus a very comfortable double sofa bed in the lounge area if you need it, this is a great place to be as a family!
The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, hob, kettle, toaster, microwave, and fridge freezer. In the utility room, you can find both a washing machine and a dishwasher to make things easy, and there's a high chair for the smallest member of the family should you need one, plus an iron and ironing board can also be found in the apartment.
The apartment has a huge dining table allowing everyone to sit together, or if you prefer, you can all eat on the solarium, where you can also barbecue with ease. Catching up with the soaps or just channel hopping, the lounge has a large flat screen TV in front of a comfortable sofa. It's linked to the Freesat service, so you will have plenty of choices if you fancy a night in! There is also a TV in the master bedroom linked to Freesat.
We provide free wi-fi for you all to stay connected, and we have aircon in both bedrooms and in the lounge. To get you started, we give you €20 worth of free aircon in your price for each full week you stay, but if you want extra that's not a problem - you can purchase more as and when you might need it, but we think you should have enough for a weeks stay.
The apartment complex has beautifully maintained gardens, both a children's and adult pool (with a lifeguard during the summer months), and plenty of space to either sunbathe by the pool or on the private solarium of the apartment. A 6 minute flat and easy walk to the 525 Plaza of Los Alcazares where you will find lots of bars and restaurants, and a further 4 minutes to the fantastic beaches of the Mar Menor, this apartment is in a great location. There's also a Supermercado on the plaza, and a Lidl and a Consum supermarket within 6 minutes walk of the apartment too.
Los Alcazares is a little gem. Its beaches are awarded the EU blue flag for cleanliness, and you can walk for around 7km from one end to the other along the shoreline promenade. There are bars and cafes dotted all along the route so you'll never get thirsty or hungry!! In the evenings, there are dozens of great restaurants and bars both in and around the 525 Plaza and in the old town. Hop on the little road train -El Habanero Tren Turistico in the summer months (May to September) and you can ride from the 525 Plaza right up to the old town and back again for a few Euros. For those who want an extended night out you can find several nightclubs and bars that open late all around Los Alcazares, but they don't spoil it for those that want an early night, so LA caters for everyone.
Los Alcazares is an all year round place to visit. There are a number of Festivals you can come to - Three Kings in January, Easter, Semana Internacional de la Huerta y el Mar - the festival of the orchards and the sea in August, and a large festival held in late October - El Caldero. These are really Spanish and well worth visiting. Cartagena holds an annual Jazz festival in November and has been doing so for more than 35 years. Los Alcazares holds markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays and you should visit whilst you are here.
Outdoor activities are plentiful - tennis, paddle tennis, windsurfing, kite surfing, paddle boarding, cycling (bikes can be hired in the town), walking, you can do all of these things here in Los Alcazares. We mustn't forget the golf - there are some world famous and spectacular courses very close to Los Alcazares. Las Colinas has just been voted Spains best Golf and Country Club, and all the golfers will recognise the name of La Manga, which is 20 minutes drive away. Closer courses can be found at Roda and Serena within the surrounding countryside of Los Alcazares. Within 3 hours you can be in the mountains skiing.
If shopping is your thing, La Zenia Boulevard is just a 15-minute drive back towards Alicante, which is Europes largest outdoor shopping mall. South for a 15 minutes drive is Cartagena. A Roman city full of culture and sophistication - visit the amphitheatre and the many beautiful streets!! If you fancy a bath for the complexion, the northern part of the Mar Menor is world famous for its high nutrient content mud - lots of people visit and it's an hilarious day out - and only 10 minutes up the coast from Los Alcazares!
So do I need a car? Absolutely not, there is plenty you can do without one. However, if you do hire one from the airports of Alicante or Murcia, it will extend your range to the countryside or coastline further afield, but not essential and everywhere is free parking within the resort.
