About the property

3 bed 2 bath, penthouse - huge solarium with BBQ, sleeps 6 - fantastic views

This stunning 3 bed penthouse is over three floors with a fabulous private rooftop solarium, BBQ and shower on the top. It is ideal for a family holiday or just a romantic break for two. In just a two minute stroll you have all the bars and International restaurants around the Tomas Maestre Marina. It is ideal to just sit and watch the sun go down over the Mar Menor with its fantastic sunsets There is also a large supermarket with fresh bread, fish, fruit and just about every thing you would want. From the marina you can go scuba diving, sailing wind surfing or just take the ferry to the other side of the Mar Menor for just 4 euros. The penthouse overlooks the communal gardens with its 3 communal pools and sun bathing area and for the more energetic there is a tennis court. There are sea views from all balcony/terraces and fabulous 180 degree west facing views over the marina and the sea beyond from the private rooftop solarium.

A car is not necessary in this location because there are lots of things to do, but if you wanted to explore the rest of the strip you can hire a bike or take the bus which runs up and down the strip every half hour.

Thank you: I just had to write and thank you for our holiday in your wonderful penthouse. This was the first time we had booked the cheap flights and made a booking of an apartment in this way on the internet. I was a bit nervous, but we were met at the airport and taken to the penthouse. As soon as we opened the door it was 'WOW' but when we went up to the solarium we were speechless!! We will be back, it was a great family holiday. It gave us the space and freedom, which you don't get in a hotel. The children loved the fact that they could play in the pool or go off on their bikes. We enjoyed the walk around the marina and the restaurants. It worked out so 'cheap' compared to other holidays, but so enjoyable!! We will now be able to take 2 holidays a year. Thank you once again Sue, Dave, Mark, Tina and Sam

La Manga Glub Golf and Leisure Facilities: For leisure golf there is a 9 hole pitch and putt just 3 km down the La Manga Strip, but for the enthusiast it is just a 25 minute drive to the 5 star La Manga Club, with its 3 golf courses and leisure facilities. This is a popular place for UK football teams to do their pre season or pre cup training.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment was very spacious and we had lots of privacy. The gardens were lovely, pool was fabulous and restaurants extremely good. Given it was October I’m guessing it was quieter than during peak season but this was fine for us. We wanted peace and quiet and relaxation and that’s exactly what we got. Jo was really helpful and just at the end of a phone call if we needed her.

Thank you for making it easy to book and hassle free, I really appreciate that. Apartment was well equipped and we lacked for nothing with the supermarket stocking pretty much everything we needed. Restaurants in the Marina were fantastic.

A lovely relaxing holiday with the chance to do more if required. Would definitely return

  • 5 of 5

A lovely location with lots to do for the family. You can also relax if it's just a rest that you want. Close to shops and restaurants with a vast choice of cuisine. Particularly like the contrast of two seas, the calm Mar Menor which offers a safe environment for swimming and the more robust Med, great for a bit of surf.

Definitely worth another visit.

We were hear for 2 weeks at the end of june 2016 the area was lovely however due to the time of year we found it very very quiet with very little to do we had a car that got us to other areas but for a relaxing time you could not beat it

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The area is quite quiet until July and August (and Easter) when the Spanish arrive for their extended holidays. The restaurants are all open throughout the year though and this quietness and superb location is why we bought this property. We agree - for a relaxing time it can't be beaten.

Lovely apartment, beautiful views, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June 2016, lovely apartment with amazing sunset views of the marina. 2 large balconies, & roof top terrace. Lovely quiet location, very large pool & supermarket within a 2 minute walk. Also a local market every Saturday right on your doorstep. Trip advisors number one restaurant in La Manga was literally a 5 minute walk away, ' La Brasserie' & we actually walked past it numerous times thinking it was just a cafe before we decided to eat here one evening. Definitely worth a visit. Also El Parador restaurant, 5 minute drive away heading towards the very end of the strip, we sat at a table practically on the beach & had a lovely meal. Boat trip to Santiago La Riberio highly recommended from Tomas Maestro Marina & also local bus down to Zoco for more bars & restaurants, also Capo de palos for lovely fish restaurants. Just writing this I want to go back ASAP. Have recommended this apartment to friends & family, and am sure we will be back one day. My only one tiny complaint was the apartment could do with a couple of full length mirrors in the bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the great review. We take your point on the full length mirrors in the bathrooms (this has not come up before) and will ask our property managers to arrange for two to be fitted over the winter. Thanks again and you are welcome back anytime. Kind regards Gill & John

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in super location. You have sea views from all rooms and loads of outside space including a sun trap roof terrace. Air con was a bonus as very hot and a lovely pool at apartment and beach and supermarket within 5 mins. Beach views are stunning and lovely to ate in the restaurants and see the sun come down. Super service from Jon the owner and we would definately stay again

Relaxing holiday, beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

The property is situated close to the marina in a quiet area towards the top end of the strip. The bus service along the strip is regular and easy to access (there are better shopping facilities along the strip just a twenty minute bus ride away) although there was an excellent supermarket just two minutes away.

The apartment itself is homely, with air-con in every room. The rooms are a good size and the balconies offer fantastic views of the marina and the mar menor in the distance. The barbeque and sunbathing facilities were also great. The pool was very clean and normally quiet, therefore we had no trouble finding a place to sit around the pool.

There was a selection of many great restaurants within a five minute walk from the property, our favourite was an unlikely place called 'welcome snack bar'. Don't be fooled by the name or the presentation of the restaurant itself, they offered wonderful, friendly service and delicious food for an affordable price.

Nearest Airport

Murcia (san javier)
Car: not necessary

This is a wonderful place for a family holiday or a romantic holiday for two, what ever you like doing you will find it on the La Manga Strip. You have the choice of two beaches, the calm, warm, crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor, ideal for your children as it is also very shallow, or in 50 yards the Med with it's wide sand beaches and rolling waves, ideal for wind surfing or fishing. It is an area where the Spanish like to go on holiday and you will soon find out why. Many visitors like to take the ferry to Sandiago de Ribera on a Wednesday for the market or just the pleasure of the boat trip. The Tomas Mastre Marina is a very pleasant place to take long leisurely walks, soaking up the sun and the scenery or just people watching or practising your spanish with the waiters. My favourite relaxation is to visit the restaurants on the left of the marina and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine of course!! Pure Bliss!!
