Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Cartagena & Mar Menor - Costa Azur


Our dream de lux apartments sleeps up to 12 (1x penthouse 6 , 1x ground floor 6) 3 MINS FROM EACH OTHER has the 5 * luxury you could wish for - beautiful, exotic, romantic setting with stunning sunsets, 99 footsteps to the soft sandy beach, 9KM of palm lined promenade and the views of the Mar Menor Bay, 10 mins from Murcia airport. Nueva Beach has 24 hour security and underground parking. YR OWN KEY TO THE BEACH

Relax on the terrace, enjoy the sun setting with a glass or two of local Rioja wine or cold San Miguel beer after a dip in the pool. Unwind and rejuvenate, be pampered with Christy Towels after a Hans Grohe power shower, sink into luxury beds (with toppers) and white soft cotton sheets whilst listening to your Ipod on our speakers.

Just think- tip out onto the beach, picnic or visit one of the small huts dotted along the promenade for tapas . NO HASSLE, NO CAR, no heavy bags to carry. Enjoy cooking local fish outside and unwind with sun on the terrace from mid morning

ROMANTIC, REST & RIOJA: We fell in love with the romantic style of the apartments and bought the largest and best positioned apartments on the development - semi detached , south facing with seaviews and sun from 11 o'clock until sunset which are rare. Always check the position and size of the apartments, not everyone is the same!!

Our apartments are ideal for families from toddlers to teenagers or just plain romantics like us, Imagine just a 2 minute stroll to the beach ,watching little ones dig sandcastles or for those teenagers will enjoy the kite surfing, gentle biking along the promenade for an ice cream or just sunbathing and laying in late!

Change over day - we are very flexible having a young family ourselves, so you are welcome to stay until your flight is due if we do not have clients coming in that overlap. IF WE DO we can assist with a secure place for cases and relax until its time using our complimentary beach towels, get changed when ready downstairs in our separate room.

About Michael and Deborah Potts

This is at Cartagena, fab restaurant, great views 30 and lovely memories with family meals with children playing in the sand over the years. We live in very rural Sussex in the middle of nowhere. We wanted the children to have wonderful memories of riding their bikes down the promenade, going to get ice creams, having some independence away from the mum and dad taxi service. We wanted peace and rest as we both have busy jobs and to relax and enjoy tapas on the beach, cocktails at sunset and children swimming at 10 at night, discover wonderful deserted beaches. I love socialising, gardening and grow my own veggies and passionate about agapanthus, food and cocktails feature a lot!!

Love contemporary interiors with comfort factor. Trendy bars but also tranquil beautiful settings.

Michael and Deborah Potts purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Michael and Deborah Potts chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

- Great Welcome, Unique setting of bay towards mountains,

- Calm shores of the mar menor

- We have guests who return year after year, some 5 times and work hard welcoming guests.

- Largest penthouse with fab views and south facing

- Semi Detached not terrace

- We are one of the lucky ones with sunset hours due to the architecture we have top terrace in sun and others do not.

- Loved the seaviews from the top terrace and sunsets

The bay is wonderful, calm seas and instance seaviews. South facing was one of two on the development that had almost surround sun. Fantastic sunsets to have our glass of rose whilst the children could go on bikes and on the beach until late into the evening. The Spanish way of life. Grassed area around the property, easy to come and go from the beach and watch children on the terrace (8rs+ ) play etc.

What makes this apartment unique

-Includes warm welcome and Beach towels

- Includes welcome pack

- no additional charges, air con

- Free baby pack, why on earth do people charge

Less than 100 footsteps to foot your feet in sandy beach

- No longer being a pack horse to the beach, you are there

- More sunshine hours and more relaxation as not in a hot car with kids

- Easy of deciding, shall we go to the beach as its totally empty at 10.00 in the morning and staying until dusk at 21.00 BLISSFULL..................We choose the apartments because both are south facing and semi detatched which is a joy. Both have sea views and the children can come and go and have some independence. We can chillax.....

No other apartment on ground floor has the benefit of good sunshine hrs without being overshadowed by other buildings.

Very romantic setting. I have worked in the hospitality industry and try to help all my guests beyond what people expect.

Los Alcazares

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent and the short distance to the warm waters of Mar Menor was brilliant. Really well equipped and lots of extras supplied by the owner to ensure the Apartment was truly 5*.

We received a generous welcome pack on arrival and the chilled wine and treats ensured the holiday was off to a great start!

We did not hire a car as there was plenty of places to eat within walking distance but I think a car would be useful to explore the wider area but is not essential.

Would recommend the property and the location and overall a great relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: As our guests know, our home is your home abroad. Each year we upgrade and this year new sunbeds that are at Champneys Health Resort have been bought for the groundfloor along with lots of other things. The penthouse has had 6 new full recliners, new fridge freezer and lots of small but important things such as new sun umbrellas. The location lends itself to relaxing and chilling, whilst 5 minutes away by taxi, you have the hustle and bustle of Los Alcazares old town and new town if you don't hire a car. There are lots of beach bars with tapas every 500 yards on the beach and I provide full information for those who walk to the local restaurants.

All that we were hoping for

  • 5 of 5

Not long back from this penthouse property with my mum and sisters. The accommodation was perfect. We had everything we needed so much that we decided to eat in every night sitting out on the balcony. The accommodation was spotless, beds comfy , hair dryers, beach towels provided . Everything had been thought of to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. Our hosts 'the Potts' checked in with us by email and phone and couldn't have been more helpful whilst we were there , as well as on the run up to our holiday . I have definately been impressed with both their service as well as the apartment and would definately recommend . Planning to go back in the near future.

Ground floor Apartment. Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location only 20 metres to the beach. There was plenty for the needs of a young family and in my case having access to satellite channel cbeebies for my two year old son.

Deborah made sure that there was few items such as milk, juice, bread etc which was such a bonus as we drove from the UK and have been in the road for the past two days.

Overall we were happy with our short break in Los Alcazarez and we would highly recommend Deborah with her beautiful apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Having travelled extensively with a young family I really believe its important to do as much as we can to help. The CD's for little film buffs, lots of plastic and the all important immediate welcome of a glass of wine and essentials helps mum and dad breathe a sigh of relief when first entering our holiday home. We do try very hard to help all our guests to have a wonderful rest and relaxing stay. We look forward to welcoming you another time and several families who have been 5 times and now the children are teenagers!!!

Beautiful apartment beside beach, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful apartment. The apartment is really gorgeous, spotlessly clean and had everything we all needed. The setting is beautiful. We really loved eating out on the balcony overlooking the pool and looking out to the sea - the memories will warm my heart in the cold winter months! The beds and pillows are super comfy.

The apartment is totally child friendly. The kids really enjoyed the kite and body board!

The location of the apartment is excellent too - literally steps to the beach, eight minutes to a big supermarket and a lovely 15/20 minute stroll along the promenade to the centre of Los Alcazares.

We cannot recommend the apartment enough. The owners were so helpful and informative. Thank you so much. We hope to get back next year.

Owner's Response: Firstly I am so happy you got some rest and enjoyed happy family moments. As you know I work in the hospitality industry and love helping families. Having young ones of my own I never have understood why babies and toddlers should be charged for high chairs , cots etc it is quite beyond me. It is lovely location with only a short flight and easy transfer for families. We are also welcoming back one family who have teenagers for the 4th time! Also unbeknown to me my niece says los alcazares has great nightlife, I have yet to see it but assured show me some time! Best wishes to you and your family and have a great summer. Please don't hesitate to return as guests returning always receive a good discount when out of main months of the season. Deborah

Apartment 6

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described, it has everything you need. There was a nice welcome pack awaiting our arrival, the chilled beers and wine were just what was required! The apartment overlooks the pool, and you can enjoy a pleasant lunch on the terrace. Our 20mth son made full use of the inflatables and bucket & spades left at the apartment.

The beach is just a few steps away,and you can enjoy a nice walk along the promenade. Enjoy a beer in one of the beach huts.

Deborah quickly responded to any queries we had, and provided detailed information on the apartment and the surrounding area.

Hi Deborah,

Just to say a big thank you for the welcome pack and that the description of the apartment as advertised was spot on. The location for the beach could not have been better and the added luxury of beach towels provided with today excess baggage charges for us brits was an added bonus.

The Mar Menor, i have to say, is the only sea I can truly say I have enjoyed being in. The area is very spanish and therefore the beach although never crowded was emptied by 1.00pm when the spanish went for their siesta. The beach bars were plenty and to suit all needs from the tapas and sangria to my daughter managing to get a bacon buttie just like home.

The supermarket and shopping mall at las velas just over a five minute walk away suited us all especially the teenagers who found the internet cafe to their satisfaction.

The area is very flat, thus making it easy to stroll along, even during the day. The families out with their children along the beach front in the early hours of the morning made it feel a very safe environment.

Thanks again Deborah for allowing us the use of your home.

Los Alcazares and The Mar Menor: The Great Pool, the Little Sea... the so-called Mar Menor (Minor Sea) has been known by different names during the course of its history, all of which have described this singular natural phenomenon: a great coastal lagoon (originally an open bay), 170 square kilometres of warm salt water, the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe 7C warm

This setting has everything you need for golf and water sports enthusiasts: great weather, a constant breeze, calm and shallow waters (less than seven metres at the deepest point)... there is no wonder it is considered one of Europe's best golf and sailing destinations. Water sports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with sailing, canoeing, swimming, water skiing, jet-skiing, fly-surfing, windsurfing and every other type of nautical activity you can imagine. Golfers can play on the international stage at famous La Manga Golf Club.

Los Alcazares is a lovely Spanish town, which is open all year due to cycle along the prom and enjoy cafe culture, Must do is the restaurant on stilts as on a long jetty surrounded by water fantastic 360 view wonderful, early evening menu for toddlers, great romantics. Wonderful authentic toasta (tomatoes with bread) on the beach for breakfast, buy the very best fish at LA and hotplate it, amazing. LA is known for its fish and the fishmongers are excellent (opp town hall).

Other Activities: Relaxing and reading, for those romantics with toddlers have a wealth of play areas on the beach right next to lovely tapas bars so no one gets bored and teenagers and twenty something, my niece 19yrs did I know that there were some fabulous clubs in L.A and that people are very friendly as she comes from Earls Court I think she knows what teenagers like(Read what our guests say about us).

Golf: Golf heaven, some 26 golf courses within the area, we can email all their details for you to book tee off times directly without a middle man and supply telephone numbers.

La Manga Club, Roda Golf, Hacidenda del Alamo, Altoreal, Rel Club de Golf Campoamor, Desert Springs, etc etc we are ideally located for those who wish to have both beach and golf facilities. Just email for more information

Culture, Boutique Shopping and Amazing Tapas can be found in Cartagena 30 mins, Cabo do Palos is a fantastic fishing village also 30mins and has wonderful seafood restaurants, watch fishing boats come in or alternative, 30 mins to the nature park which has unspoilt beaches and rock pools to explore. Go prepared as nothing there apart from beauty, tranquillity even in August!
