About Paul Gupta

I am a retired Subpostmaster. I was born in India where I qulified as a Civil Engineer. I worked in Iraq from 1958 to 1964 as a Civil Engineer and in UK as well from 1964 to 1981. We have lived in UK ever since.

We have 3 well qualified and happily married children. They all live within 25 miles radius of London.

I bought this apartment jointly with our daughter Dr P Gupta who was born in UK and qualified as a doctor from University College London. My wife and I live in Essex while our daughter lives in Surrey. She is married and have 2 children.

Paul Gupta purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Paul Gupta chose Los Alcazares

We bought our 1st Spanish apartment in Villamartin, Alicante in 2003 after my retirement from my business. But, it was a wrong choice of the area as the sea was not within the walking distance nor there was any bus service. Luckily we sold that property within 2 months of purchase and returned to UK.

We then returned to Spain again and bought this property. We fell in love with the area of Mar Menor or Minor Sea. The several kilometre long prominade is ideal for walks and the beach is excellent and children friendly.

We use this apartment several times a year. The 5 supermarkets, several restaurants and banks etc fulfill all our needs.

Our penthouse apartment has a patio that has sun all day along, a balcony to cool and a large roof terrace/solarium with sunbeds. We have a shower and a pull over shade on the roof terrace should it get too hot.

What makes this apartment unique

The 3 terraces (sunny patio, the cooling balcony and the roof solarium) plus the beautiful layout of the rooms and 2 WCs was enough to tempt us in buying this apartment. But, additionally, its location of within 2 miles of the San Javier Airport, the Square incorporation restaurants, banks, supermarkets and the long promenade along the Mar Menor was irresistible. We wouldn't have found a better location for our dream apartment.

But, ofcourse, there are also 2 shared community swimming pools within the secure gated complex. And, nearby there are golf courses for the enthusiast golfers.

The historic city of Cartagena is only 15 minutes drive away. But, when we are in mood to just relax we do not need to hire a car at all. Everything in within walking distance.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT AND TOWN

  • 5 out of 5
Hi Paul,
Had a brilliant time in Los A lcazares. This is our second year at your apartment and couldn't fault it.
It is well looked after and all the little extras like the pictures on the wall, the flowers, music system, lcd tv, dvd etc. Even the lighted mirror units in the bathrooms made a difference to the girls. In the kitchen you have every utensil you could ask for. The roof terrace is great and i notice you have new sun beds. The complex is well looked after and have two good pools.
It is in a good location, five minutes to the supermarket, banks, shops, restaurants and bars, and an extra five minutes to the beach which is excellant. It has a lovely promenade with beach bars along it. It also has good water sports.
You made it easy for us by keeping in touch and arranging everything for us, like airport pick up, showing us round the apartment, also asking if there was anything needed or information.
Could you hold our deposit just know as we will probably return next year again as long as you still have it.
Regards
James from Bo'ness West Lothian

Owner's Response: Thank you James for your excellent review of our apartment. And, as requested, I shall hold on to your deposit for your next booking with us.

We do try our best to provide everything possible for your comfortable stay. The sun beds were replaced with better quality ones. There is still one last plastic one left to be replaced fairly soon so that all four would be of the same quality.

All in all, a great review I would say and something encouraging for the new bookers.

Our favourite corner of the world

  • 5 out of 5
Having never booked a holiday like this before I was a bit nervous. From my 1st enquiry the owner could not have been more helpful, even arranging a welcome pack of food for us. On arrival at the apartment after a short journey from the airport, we were greeted by Lorie who showed us round. The apartment was spotless and exactly as described. It was much bigger than the photos truly show. It was like home from home, it had everything we needed. Plenty of towels and linen. The kitchen is very well equipped with every utensil you can buy! The roof terrace is perfect for sunbathing on the sunbeds and the shower up there is great for cooling off. The views are amazing and the area is so quiet. Eating our evening meal on the balcony watching the sun go down was amazing. The communual pool area and gardens are very well maintained. The apartment is only a 5 minute walk to the bars and restaurants and a further 5 to the beach. Best places for tapas are El Torro, Passion and one other we can't remember the name! The Boulevard is a very welcoming bar where you can sit and watch the world go by. At the beach the Principado serves delicious snacks. The only let down was the 525 sport bar. They turned the tv down during a football match as a customer didn't like the noise!! We would definately recommend this apartment to our friends and family. We are hoping to go back next year to the same apartment if the owner still has it. We would like to say a huge thank you to Paul for his excellent customer service throughout our booking.

Best apartment in Los Alcazres!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved out 10 night stay in LA, the apartment was brilliant, everything we needed, very clean and tidy and was great with the 2 bathrooms. 4 of us stayed (2 couples) so the layout of the apartment was great with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each bedroom had a bathroom just next door. We also ate in quite a lot and the kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of towels to use in the bathroom, the best bit was the washing machine so we could wash all our clothes before going home and we also washed all the towels and bedding before leaving as we wanted to leave the place as we found it. The sunroof is excellent, we don't like the beach so spent all our time up there and at the pool. This apartment gets the sun all day which is great, it's on the roof until early evening, then at the side balcony to eat and watch the sunset. The complex was nice and secure, with a nearby pool to use too. The back of the property faces an open field which is lovely and quiet. I've been to LA around 8 times now and stayed in a different apartment each time but I will definitely be returning to this apartment in the near future! best location for shops and restaurants, but still nice and quiet! Paul was always on hand to answer any questions and sort any problems we may have had. Overall it was an enjoyable holiday and not one of us could find fault with the apartment.

IDEAL BASE

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great time during our 10 days in Los Alcazares. We have holidayed here before on two previous occasions, but never experienced it quite so hot. The air conditioning in the apartment was a very welcome relief after a day in the sun. The apartment itself has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay and is ideally situated for the main strip down the Rio Nalon and only a short walk to the nearby beach. A little more of a walk takes you down into the older part of the town. We always hire a car and this is a great place for a base to explore further afield in Murcia. We particularly enjoyed coming back to the apartment on an evening and setting up the BBQ on the roof terrace and watching the sun go down whilst we ate a nice meal made out of the local produce bought in the local shops and markets and much more fun and cheaper than eating out in what I would consider to be quite expensive restaurants down the strip. If you do want to venture out to eat, the nearby El Patio restaurant is excellent and much better value than those down the strip.
We will certainly be going back to Los Alcazares at some time and would have no reservation about using your apartment once again. Only slight downside was lack of English channels on the TV, but otherwise, cannot fault it and would recommend it to others thinking of visiting the area.
David and Diane.

Super apartment in great area

  • 5 out of 5
This is our fourth year in this apartment. It is great apartment with everything you need. The apartment is spacious and has so many extras that i would not have enough space to write. It has a great roof terrace with sun beds.
The communal pool is good and is a great place for families in a gated community.
Paul the owner could not be any more helpful in organizing any of your needs.
There is some great restaurants and bars five minutes walk from the apartment. There is also plenty of supermarkets and there is a market twice a week. The beach is a ten minute walk and is superb. It is great for families as you can walk well out and ther are plenty of watersports and pedaloes. There are also pleny of great beach bars open all day and open till night.
I would definitely recommend this apartment and the owner is very helpful

Stay in Los alcarazes June 30th

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great stay at the apartment. We were met at the airport by Meena who couldn't have been more firendly and we arranged pick up time with her on day of departure too.
Apartment had everything we needed, clean towels, t-towels and all the kitchen utensils for self catering. The roof top terrace was fantastic and a perfect setting to have dinner in the evening when it was abit cooler. The terrace had a canopy which was great to sit under when it was too hot.
The only negative was that there were no sunbeds round the pool area so you had to take them from the apartment on lie on your towels.We spent every day down at the beach which was a 10 minute stroll. Great location for big supermarket and Lidl was also near. A wide choice of restaurants were on the strip which catered for all tastes.
We wouldn't hesitate to go back again in the future. Paul was very helpful and I was very impressed that the damage deposit was paid back into my bank account the day after we arrived home.

Thank you Paul.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lydia, for your excellent review of our apartment. Regarding the sunbeds around the Community Pools, they are not allowed there as per the Community rules. We ask our guests to bring their own beach towels. We have our sunbeds on our own solarium that you have loved and enjoyed so much.

We look forward to your future custom.
