A luxury villa: After an exhilarating day at La Manga Club – maybe Dad on the golf course, Mum at the Spa and the kids at the Mini Club, imagine returning to the air-conditioned luxury of El Rancho 125. Enjoy a refreshing shower or lingering bath in one of our luxuriously appointed bathrooms, cook a meal in our fantastic newly fitted kitchen with every utensil and appliance you could wish for, or eat out at one of the many bars and restaurants on La Manga Club or nearby. Then with the kids happily tucked up in bed, retire to the terrace with a bottle of wine, relax in our comfortable reclining chairs and watch the twinkling lights over the Mar Menor. Plan the next day’s activities, maybe horse riding in the beautiful Calblanque national park, go- carting, water sports or just lunch in a fishing village – it’s up to you. These are just some of the delights that await you at El Rancho 125.

A 5 star resort: La Manga Club is considered one of Europe's finest golfing destinations, with its' three championship courses, practice facilities and Golf Academy. Each of the three courses offer their own unique style and challenge, and, of course, breathtaking scenery. A handicap certificate is required for the South Course and soft spikes are compulsory on all courses. The tennis centre is now the official winter training base of Britain's lawn tennis Association and offers 28 courts of differing surfaces. Also available are squash courts, prop shop, hire services, physiotherapy and a tennis academy. Golf and tennis bookings can be made in advance of your holiday (recommended) and our guests will receive 50% discount off the charges.

A perfect holiday: La Manga Club's newest facility - the Spa and wellness centre - offers jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, fun showers and a relaxation area as well as an indoor pool, large gymnasium and fitness studio. With 13 treatment rooms, the Spa offers a wide selection of soothing, pampering and rejuvenating treatments.

The list of sports and activities available at La Manga Club is extensive, and with many professional sports teams visiting to utilise the training facilities, there really is something for everyone.

El Rancho

  • 5 of 5

Our family (5) stayed at this villa for 6 days for a recent short break. We felt that, for the cost, the property exceeded expectations - and frankly was just absolutely perfect for a relaxing holiday.

The La Manga resort is very safe and family friendly, and the mixture of pool and beach availability was great for young kids.

The facilities within the apartment were all fine, and the setting is very quiet and peaceful.

Many thanks.

Enjoyable holiday in lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

We were meant to spend 9 days on holiday here in April 2010 but ended up spending 2 weeks due to the volcanic ash cloud! The owners helped us out enormously by letting us stay on for free in the villa which made the experience much less stressful. Thanks so much for that!

The villa is very comfortable with everything we needed, and we enjoyed our meals outside on the terrace looking out over the wonderful view.

The communal pool looked lovely but was unfortunately too cold to swim in at this time of year. We were disappointed that the whole La Manga Club did not have an outdoor heated pool that we could use as the kids love to swim.

The beach that the owners recommended, Calblanque, was lovely and mostly deserted, and we enjoyed meals in the recommended restaurants in Cabo de Palos. Trips to the cities of Cartegena and Murcia were also very good and it is a lovely area to explore. We had a lovely walk up to the guns on the hillside to the west of the resort.

Would definitely recommend the villa for a holiday, but think the resort as a whole is not ideally suited for pre-school kids due to lack of playpark etc. Would be idea for older kids who want to do the golf, tennis etc.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this apartment last summer (2 parents, 4 children). It was very clean and easy to live in. The main terrace is particularly spacious which made meals outside smoother and there were some comfy sun loungers which were much appreciated. It was very well "stocked" with excellent kitchen facilities and very useful beach chairs.

The pool was great and not busy at all. Most days we had it to ourselves. Loved all the La Manga resort facilities too. The owners gave us some really fabulous information about near by beaches - happily we agreed with their recommendations. They also told us about the supermarkets which again made our holiday run just a little more easily as we didn't have to trail around trying to find places.

One thing that I wasn't too sure about was having all the bedrooms downstairs - I felt a little uncomfortable having my 4 year old sleeping there while I was upstairs in the early evening, but this was probably me being too over protective and nothing to do with the property itself.

Unfortuately we locked ourselves out and had a problem with the air-conditioning, however, literally within an hour these problems had been resolved by the attentive maintenance service. I think because the house had not been used for a few months the downstairs did smell a little musty initially.

It really is a great place to go on holiday. It is very, very quiet and for me, that makes for a very, very relaxing holiday.
