A must stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment in December 2008. It was a pleasure to wake up to blue skies every day. Colin, the very helpful manager arranged for a taxi to collect us at the airport which was very welcomed as my wife has very bad arthritis and cannot stand for long. The apartment is on the ground floor and was very easy to access. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We enjoyed being able to watch all our favourite UK channels and few good DVD,s We did not need a car as the shops and restaurants are only a couple of minutes walk away and the bus stop to Murcia and Cartagena is very close by. All in all we had a very restful and enjoyable holiday and will definitely be back.

Lovely time spent with friends

  • 5 of 5

Great location, lovely roomy apartment. Everything you need on your doorstep, but not in your face, far enough away to be peaceful, but close enough to food and drink if you want it. The Mar Menor is a pleasant stroll away, a great place to chill for the day on the beach. Spent a week here with some very good friends. Been to the area a number of times over the years, because, it is predominantly Spanish. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I stayed at Brenda's apartment in early June. We have visited Los Alcazares a number of times over the last four years so are becoming familiar with the area. The location of this apartment is arguably the best we have found. As other reviewers have mentioned it is very convenient for shops, restaurants, and beach. The apartment itself on the ground floor is spacious and well laid out with the bonus of a terrace to the front, Throughout the booking process Brenda was helpful and professional as was our airport transfer. Regarding customer service. This was the first time ever that I have been greeted with a personal note wishing us a happy holiday, a (huge) bowl of strawberries, and a bottle of wine ! I have already recommended this property to friends. Many thanks, Jean & Peter

ps. The rating would have been 5 stars had it not been for the rather temperamental washing machine !!

Relaxing family holiday - A pleasure

  • 5 of 5

This is our third return to this exact apartment and I feel I must write a review at this stage! Such a pleasant experience all round. Brenda was most helpful in terms of our very specific needs with regard to our family. This year my husband and I had our two children with us, a lively two year old and ten month old baby. There was a cot and high chair waiting on our arrival and the apartment was immpecably clean as always.

It is situated ideally close to all amenities and a short walk to the beach. I was a bit nervous with two children as we decided not to rent a car but really everything was so close by I needn't have been worried. Each morning I would stroll down to the local bakery with my baby in the pram for freshly baked bread before we would all head out to the beautiful pool which was cleaned daily.

The plaza has a great selection of restaurant and bars, all very child friendly and excellent staff. Our favourite restaurants to visit were Rosalinds & Bentleys. Both serve excellent food, and at very reasonable rates too.

The beach is beautiful and has an ideal walk way which runs the length of the coast - an ideal place for my early morning jog.

Overall, I cannot fault this apartment whatsoever, I just love the ease at which we could all relax and enjoy ourselves. Brenda is excellent in terms of local knowledge and very accommodating. The property manager Graeme is so helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Thanks again for such a wonderful, relaxing holiday, I would definitely recommend this apartment and area to anyone looking for a break with children. I will be back again next year, please God!

Owner's Response: Dear Claire, It was absolutely lovely to have you and your family return to us for your family holiday again this year . Thank you so much for for your very positive feedback, as a busy Mum I really appreciate you having taken the time to share your experience and also for your additional nuggets of information. It's great that you all benefited from a lovely relaxing holiday without the need to drive and being on the ground floor is a great advantage when you have little ones who love dipping in and out of the pool . Delighted that you enjoyed the restaurants in the Plaza, there is such a choice one could dine out for several weeks without visiting the same place twice. I love the fact that the staff are always so friendly and welcoming and the prices are amazing. Overall Los Alcazares has such a lot to offer and your review captured it more perfectly than I could. Many thanks again. I have passed on your lovely comments to Graeme who sends his best wishes, we would love to see you all again next year. Kindest Regards, Brenda
