Perfect relaxing sunshine getaway

5 of 5
Came to stay for a few days with the girls for a birthday treat. The villa was perfect. Decorated in a tasteful and luxurious style, it really felt like a home from home. Every little thing had been thought of, didn't even have to bring towels! The garden, roof terrace and pool were all lovely, again with lilo's and pool floats to use. The on site shop is fully stocked of anything you need or forgot! And the restaurants up at the hotel were amazing. I can also recommend the on site spa, which was quite reasonably priced and very enjoyable. The beach was a 5 minute drive away as was the airport. All in all a perfect little get away for relaxing and I can't wait to come back!

Fantastic townhouse and we had a wonderful stay

5 of 5
The townhouse is exactly as described- a home from home. I stayed with my husband and 2 children (age 6 and9). We stocked the fridge up from the mercadona in los alcazeres and loved using the charcoal barbecue. Just bought coals and firefighters and it cooked brilliantly, doesn't look like much but works great. We used both the community pool and apartment pools. The community pool has well kept toilets but you need to purchase something from the bar area to get in- we all had ice creams from a counter stocking a variety of flavours. The apartment pool was nice and quiet but no toilets (as it's mainly for folk in the apartments attached) We went to the beach at los alcazeres and also a trip into Murcia-well worth the 40 min drive. We also attended the kids disco at the intercontinental and the bar prices were reasonable. Boys loved it. We will definitely be back. Diane
