About Michael and Deborah Potts

Undiscovered 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.

I am a hotel inspector so understandable I expect very high standards and as you can read from the reviews our team are there to help, ensure your holidays is memorable and we do our utmost to help you. Whether its locked out, flight changed or volcano eruption !!

Michael and Deborah Potts purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Michael and Deborah Potts chose Los Alcázares

BEACH SEA VIEWS-ON THE BEACH location location location sunsets with no interrupted apartments to block, NOT ON THE ROAD!

Semi detached with view of palm tree fountain and gardens, no traffic noise. as must as we live in rural Sussex..

- Winter weather fantastic March 19C - 23C and sunny with blue skies.

The architect had thought hard how to give great views and shelter from sunshine and wind . Long sunshine days. NOT ON THE ROAD SIDE AND SOUTH FACING.

The apartment is one of the few with all day sun with overhang for sun.

Sit and read a book, watch the sea or little ones on the terrace. Being raised up this allows greater views and exclusive feel and have its own wrap around garden.

Great Welcome, Unique setting of beachfront on the bay with seaview towards mountains,

- Calm shores of the mar menor

- All day sunshine and peaceful family setting with plenty to do or chilax

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

- Largest penthouse with fab views and south facing


- 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



I have a hospitality background so used to hosting 5 star guests and this is very important that my guests have great communication, receive attention at all times, no matter what. That your holiday is important and that you enjoy our apartments and you will see what we say and more importanting what the reviews say about us is TRUE.

- Mar Menor all year round climate, sunbathing in March 21C - Yippee, blue skies and sunny days

-Includes free warm welcome and free 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Deborah,

I'm sorry for taking so long to reply, but I've had a very busy day.

We would like to thank you for returning our deposit so promptly, it's greatly appreciated.

We had a lovely time in your beautiful home.

It is in a great location - and the boys loved the pool too. We tried the restaurants you recommended and were not disappointed.

I really can't think of a single thing that could be improved in your apartment - it is definitely five star.

Thanks for all your help - we all had a lovely holiday.

Kindest regards

Fantastic apartment and owners

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a week staying in Deborah and Michael's lovely apartment. We were 4 adults and 2 children. This apartment was very clean and in a great location, just on the beach and with a great shared pool. This ground floor apartment had great and easy access to the pool (and also the daily bakery van that would stop just outside with lovely breads and patisseries!). The apartment had everything we needed - even beach towels, sun loungers and spades and buckets. The kitchen had all the facilities we needed. We literally only had to bring clothes. It is in a very secure complex with very easy access to the beach. Deborah was fantastic at communicating before we went and while we were there. I would thoroughly recommend staying here. They also recommended some great places to eat nearby. British freeview and wifi in the apartment was a nice luxury too!

Deborah who does the welcome pack and my lovely Dad who keeps up the maintain and 24hr support. We loved having you stay and really happy you had the usual wonderful 22C weather in April..... Thank you for leaving the apartment in such a good state. Delighted that the apartment works so well for your multigenerational group with something for everyone, children in and out from the beach and my own mother loves sitting and reading on the terrace, often with a glass of Rosada the local drink. Please do not hesitate to contact me for a discount if out of main month season for all returning guests of which we have many. Now you have found us we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best Wishes Deborah and Michael

You will not find better owners to deal with - apartment is beautiful too

  • 5 of 5

I was initially sceptical when I found that one of the blocks across the road (not in view of the apartment) was vacant, but the apartment is ideal, clean and modern.

It housed my husband, our two children, my parents in law and myself for a week and no one fell out, so it was sufficient enough and exceptionally well equipped.

The real gem for us was being directly poolside, as soon as the kids were mithering to get in the pool each morning I could sit on the patio and watch them with a brew. It is lovely and private too, not too busy.

I have never stayed anywhere where the other owners (both English & Spanish) were so friendly and helpful, this was so refreshing for us.

I was completely blown away by the communications from Deborah the owner, she literally went way above and beyond before our trip, during our trip (giving us her mobile number if we had any issues at all and other locally based contacts numbers) and after our trip too. Any queries or questions we had were responded to promptly. For that reason, I could not ask for more.

The bread man was a bonus. Everything easily accessible. The restaurant choice in the town square is varied and well priced - and at the places we ate, very good food.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a great location. We enjoyed being so close to the pool and eating meals on the balcony with a view of the sea. We didn't hire a car but found everything we needed in close enough proximity. The supermarket was a ten minute walk and the bread man was a convenient bonus. We swam in the sea every day and the kids tried different water sports. We walked four times to Los Alcazares and even took a bus to nearby Santiago. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Dear Deborah and Family, Sounds an amazing holiday and so happy you swam in the sea each day as its so much warmer than the Mediterranean. Just footsteps away. I am delighted you enjoyed it and more importantly relaxed watching the sunsets. We always want to hear what our guests experienced. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best Wishes Deborah

An truly excellent apartment in a fantastic location. Next to the pool, next to the prom. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay really began back in September 2016 when we first made contact to Deborah to arrange the holiday. She could not have been more helpful and she made us feel like 'guests in her home' rather than renters. I am pleased we opted for Apt 6 as its ground floor level allowed us to sprawl out across the lawn beside the lovely, incredibly well maintained pool. The apartment itself was spacious and all the extra touches were much appreciated - welcome pack, very comfortable beds, hot plate (for cooking the delicious local fish!), etc. We hired a car, which I would recommend, and visited Torrevieja, Murcia and Cartagena. We also enjoyed our visit to the huge La Zenia shopping mall although the closer Dos Mares shopping centre was great too. The 25 min walk to the main restaurant area in the evenings could be broken up with the odd stop at some the lovely chiringuitos on the promenade. All in all I would thoroughly and unreservedly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of Spain.

Car: not necessary

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!

For those young families the area provides wonderful facilities. Because LA is flat is great for wee ones in buggies or older family members, a gentle stroll down the palm tree lined bay. The mar menor is an inland lagoon off the Med and so is calm shores for those slightly unsteady. It was a revelation to me as I had very young children, plus nanny and grandad!!
