El Algar, Murcia, Spain - The Spain the Spanish Keep Quiet About

There is something about the Murcia area of Spain that gets to your very heart - and El Algar is even more special. A small town in rural Costa Calida it has even been known to smell of lemon blossom when the trees are in flower. There is much about the area that is unique. Close by natural features such as the large salt water lagoon of the Mar Menor and the beautiful Mediterranean coast nestle against the splendour of the hills of the Calblanque National park. Day to day life in El Algar is typically Spanish with a local weekly market, fiestas and festivals particularly at Easter and all the hustle and bustle you would expect - together with the quiet siesta time. The nearest big town is Cartagena just ten minutes way. This old town is the "new" Carthage from Roman times and has extensive roman remains to prove it as well as a busy town centre with shops and restaurants and a lively port. There is plenty to do in the area with lots of amenities - from playing golf at the La Manga Club to scuba diving and go-karting to just sitting sipping wine watching the sun go down. Come to the real Spain – the one the Spanish keep quiet about!

Everything you need for a super holiday on this popular golf resort. The main bar / restaurant area is just across the road and the well stocked supermarket jst round the corner. Good base to explore the area.

We have had sunshine from morning till dusk due to the location of the apartment, clean complex and everything on your doorstep. Would highly recommend.

We primarily came to this resort and location for the golf. In terms of the villa, it is set in a superb location on the resort being no more than a 10 minute walk from the hotel, amenities (shop and decent resturants) and the golf. The villa itself has everything you need in a villa aborad. Decent size of all rooms. The 3 bathrooms is a bonus! Although we had fantastic weather (near to 15°C at the beginning of june- just the wind that was chilly) we weren't able to use the pool, and it wasn't warm enough to sit outside- however in the summer these would be great as well as the veranda! The great TV was a bonus for us too with English channels. Overall we found no faults with the villa itself. Ticks all the boxes really. We were very impressed, and found it very helpful, being able to contact the couple that look after the villa over in Spain. Gary was very helpful and set up the golf tee times and clubs along with the golf centre for us which was fantastic. And anything we needed we knew we could contact him which always put our mind at ease. We were able to use the facilities in the hotel which was great for the women- when the men played golf we were able to use the spa at the hotel which was fab. The resturants Around were great. There's a couple linked to the hotel, and then if you take a walk about 15 minutes outside the gates of the resort there are other resturants and one is a pub style which is nice and popular. Overall we had such a nice break away, everything went well, no problems. Easy to book, easy owners to contact if we needed. Great and accurate information given to us by the owners prior to leaving. We definitly want to be visiting this villa again throughout the year and feel very thankful for such a great break away.
