We believe we have equipped the apartment with everything you will need for a happy holiday. Sleeps 5/6 - 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and second with twin beds plus sofa bed in the lounge. The large balcony overlooks the lovely park and is equipped with patio table and 4 chairs (others can be moved outside) Communal solarium.

Puerto de Mazarron, Murcia: Parque del Faro apartments are nestled on a headland in a perfect location for access to all local amenities, beaches, shops and harbour with its wonderful restaurants, promenade and views. Watch the fishermen bringing in their catch in the commercial harbour or admire the luxury yachts in the newly rebuilt leisure marina. Why not walk up to the Faro (lighthouse) and watch the sun rise or set in spectacular fashion. The atmosphere is relaxed and the views over the bay and behind to the mountains are wonderful. This is not a place for those seeking package holiday entertainment but one where you can recharge the batteries on a wide choice of beaches, enjoy the local sports scene or simply watch the world go by. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets but if you want a McDonald's you can always go to Cartagena which is 20 minutes away (approx 6 euro by bus ) and also has a rich Roman history, including amphitheatre 19th century submarine & museums which will keep historians of any age occupied for hours. Take a trip around the bay in Cartagena and learn more about the history of this ancient harbour which still caters for submarines and ocean liners or take a dolphin watching cruise in Puerto de Mazarron. There really is something for everyone!

Mazarron has a wonderful array of beaches to suit every taste. The promenade beach follows the sweep of the bay towards La Azohia to the East and is perfect for children aged 0 to 100! To the West there are fine sandy beaches with surf and beach Volleyball at Bolnuevo. Playa de la Reya is a lovely cove with fine sand next to the smaller marina. Restaurants can be found all along the coastline along with tree lined promenades and walk ways. A tourist information pack is provided in the apartment with details of many different sites, activities and restaurant suggestions and recommendations.

The Castillitos or 'Guns of Mazarron' as they are affectionately known lie to the east of La Azohia at the top of a mountain road which is not for the faint hearted. The drive and views are fabulous and military historians will find the 14 inch Vickers built guns and now derelict buildings fascinating. The drive from Isla Plana through the 'forgotten valley' is wonderful and the old customs house which looks like something out of Zoro is worth a stop.

Further inland the fort at Lorca provides a fascinating insight into the history of the area but beware you may be tapped on the shoulder by a medieval knight. The Sierra Espuna provides miles of mountain and forest trails for walkers and cyclists and picnic areas as well as scenic drives and the opportunity to see wild boar and North African mountain goats.

At the end of September Cartagena comes alive with lavish re-enactments of the Roman defeat of new Carthage. Some 2000 locals take part in this event and families are loyal to their roots! Mazarron's fiesta is in mid April (see Tourist info website)

A Phoenician wreck lies in the bay just off Isla beach in Puerto de Mazarron and the Roman fish factory next to the harbour is fascinating.

Out of season Puerto de Mazarron provides warm weather and relaxation away from the colder northern European winters. In season it is a vibrant family holiday resort catering for all interests and ages. A traditional holiday destination for Spanish families which is becoming recognised as a little gem by savvy visitors who return year on year.

Fantastic Property/Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located within a five minute walk of the Marina and the promenade. The apartment was exactly as described in the advertisement and was well furnished with all the appliances necessary for a good holiday break. My wife and I spent an enjoyable part of every evening on the balcony, watching the children playing in the park across the road from the apartment. The main purpose for our visit to this part of Spain was to look at different areas from Almaria in the south to Torriavieja and this flat in Purto Mazarron was the perfect base to work from with a view to purchasing a property in Spain in the future. I cannot end this review without a mention of Monicawho was very nice and helpful when we arrived at the flat, she let us in and explained the working of the underground garage to us and which parking bay had been allocated for our use, which meant our car and belongings were safe and secure. She also offered to help with anything we required during our stay.

All in all, a wonderful holiday break in an immaculate flat in a great location, my wife and i will definately recommend this flat to our friends, what more can I say!!!

With best regards, Anne

Winter sun in the Port

  • 5 of 5

We have recently enjoyed a splendid 4 weeks in this very comfortable, well appointed apartment. Despite experiencing 2/3 days of unusually cold weather, the apartment had excellent heating and there were numerous blankets and throws for extra warmth for the very cosy bed!

We were already very familiar with the area and always find new hidden jems to explore. A visit to the fishing port is interesting as the morning catch, usually sardines, and the main catch are unloaded and then auctioned.

We always enjoy the beach walk to Bolnuevo and never tire of the stunning scenery. So many places to go and we use the local buses to access some of these.

Our thanks go to Anne for her prompt attention to any queries and making our stay super comfy!! Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely feedback Marion and Tony. I am glad that you found the flat warm and comfortable in some of the worst weather experienced in Spain in decades. It is not often that the aircon is used for heating. At least the cold did not last. I am delighted that the new mattress met with your approval. I look forward to being of assistance in the future. With best regards Anne

Well equipped and well located apartment.

  • 4 of 5

This is a well equipped apartment with good Wi-fi, has good safe access and location. The underground parking garage is a real bonus. The owner provided good customer service throughout with good communication. The apartment was clean and ready for us to walk into.

All facilities including beaches and marina are in easy walking distance. We had several good meals in the area and some of the further out beaches (you need transport) are wonderful. We did mention to the owner the beds are a bit uncomfortable and she was appreciative of the feedback and has decided to improve these. It can be a bit noisy on a Friday and Saturday night from nearby restaurant but best to join in as the restaurant is very good. Monica downstairs is very friendly and extremely helpful. Overall a great area and great location we enjoyed it and wont hesitate to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback it is much appreciated. It is good to have comments as without these we can not improve on our service. I am about to visit the flat and so will replace the mattresses as needed. Yes the Barracca is the most popular restaurant with locals and as it is the most authentic Spanish restaurant in the port is well worth a visit. Yes the clientele can be a bit noisy whilst leaving to go home but all good natured and normal Spanish behaviour. I hope we will be able to welcome you in the future. Anne

Could not be Better

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described. As others have mentioned, the location is ideal for both the town restaurants and beaches (although not necessary, a car is an advantage to explore the area and get to the further afield and quieter beaches). The flat is very well equipped and comfortable. Of particular note is the provision of beach equipment (chairs, brollies, mats and a cool bag). Also, the underground parking space is a real bonus: firstly, so that you get into a cool car and secondly so that you are able to park at busy times (weekends & Bank Holidays) when street parking is hard/impossible to find.

One minor problem when the internet connection failed was quickly sorted out with a short text to Anne, who contacted the provider.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in our apartment. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and the facilities of Puerto de Mazarron. We hope we will be able to welcome you again in the future. We are continually looking for ways to improve the experience of our guests and are in the process of fitting a water filter which will mean that the tap water, which is already perfectly drinkable, is improved and is comparable to bottled water. Wifi connectivity issues are rare and as you say are quickly remedied by our excellent provider.
