Beautiful villa :-)

  • 4 of 5

We have recently stayed at this villa in mid September and have to say it really has the Wow! factor. I have stayed at the smaller villa Alcors on El Valle before,but the Villa Algaba is so much bigger.It's bordering on vast and has the added bonus of a larger pool too.

We arrived on a late flight so Andy didn't meet us which we were aware of,but he'd put the lamps on for us so as soon as we walked in it felt homely :-) The living area with it's high vaulted beamed ceiling is lovely and again,gives the villa a feeling of lots of space.All the bedrooms were a good size and having three WC's is always a bonus!As stated there is a dressing room off of the master bedroom which is ideal,and there is plenty of hanging space AND a hairdryer and GHD hair straightners to use, along with golf cubs etc ( We don't play golf though so not needed ) The villa was absolutely spotlessly clean so a special mention to Claire ( The cleaning lady ) as she'd done a wonderful job and was most impressed as all the towels were presented in little fan shapes on the beds etc,just like you would get in a hotel.This was a really nice touch.

Outside the living area again is vast.Plenty of good seating areas etc so all in all perfect for a party of 6.Nice BBQ area etc overlooking the golf course with beautiful views back over to the mountains.

I would have given this villa a 5 star review but, unfortunately we arrived to a fridge freezer not working.Obviously we appreciate these things happen, but it took us being there nearly 48 hours to get a replacement fridge, which is not great in 30 degree heat! Obviously we arrived late on in the evening so couldn't report the fridge problem until the following day,but not even a cool box or mini fridge ( Which would have been suffice ) was offered to us just to help us out until a replacement was found,so the everything in the welcome pack we'd bought in had to be binned.

As for the resort, it's a lovely quiet haven set in beautiful surroundings.It is remote so you do need to have a car to see the best of the area.The club house is nice with beautiful views across the Mar Menor in the distance.There are plenty of nice places to visit in and the Murcia region.The beaches along Los Alcazares are great and the shallow waters ideal for young families.A trip to Murcia city is a must too.

Despite the fridge glitch, I was still most impressed and can highly recommend.Cheers Paul :-)

5* interior 4* exterior

  • 4 of 5

Stayed August/September family of 6 including children and grandparents.

The location is superbly quiet and peaceful on a large complex that has gated security that is mostly made up of expats and retired folk. However that is something we loved as everbody is very friendly and enjoying the sunshine.

El Valle is one of 5 golf resorts built by the troubled Polaris world (read the wiki report on them) but I have to say the quality of the villa build is superb. Inside the villa is a credit to the Hancock family as its quality fittings throughout. The master bedroom is tastefully done and this theme continues throughout with the large living area being a fantastic family space.

The aircon and sky sports TV made me feel right at home and I can see as a man connected with Sheffield FC he is football mad like myself.

The only let down I have to put is the state of outside. The seating furniture has seen better days and most of it has its back coming off. The pool is starting to miss a few small tiles and parts of the whitewash render are flaking. It's not a massive issues but a few days TLC and its back up to the 5 * its purportes to be. I can understand that currently being for sale this may explain the issues.

But on the whole this is a splendid villa which any of my family would return to again if still for rent.

You definitely require a car to get around and the supermarket on the site is excellent which is 5-10 minutes walk away. Next to that is the clubhouse which is fantastic value and offers amazing views down to the Mar Menor.

If you want a relaxing getaway I recommend.

A superb location and facilities. Paul was on hand before the break to give pointers and was really helpful with regards to providing information regarding the local amenities. Would have no issues recommending the property to friends or family, in fact we were that impressed that my wife has insisted that we return later this year.

Gorgeous villa & relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Paul was extremely helpful in the build up to my holiday and the travel directions were nice & easy from Murcia airport, with Andy (the key-holder) on hand to meet us at the complex and guide us up to the villa.

It sits on a lovely corner plot towards the top of the complex and, as you walk in the front door, you'll be welcomed by a really stunning villa/home. It's well laid out, very tastefully furnished and definitely one of the best I have stayed in over years of travel. A nice size pool and some great outside space, including some good and needed shade areas.

I was looking for somewhere peaceful and relaxing and this was definitely achieved. El Valle is a large site and I enjoyed daily walks, covering a couple of miles all around the estate. I was there at a quiet time, but the weather was wonderful (c.37C most days of the fortnight).

The clubhouse has a very nice bar and the terrace has great views over the 18th. The food here is excellent and you also have the supermarket attached for your own needs at the villa. The gym is free to use as well.

We took one trip out and about to Murcia itself and had a great day wandering around the city. You don't need a car (it's no more than 30 minutes to the airport at San Javier), if you're happy just staying on the course, but it's definitely needed if you want to get anywhere. I did notice a couple of mini-buses which came in to pick people up and take them to some of the local bars/restaurants, which was useful as well.

All in all, a great break in a fantastic villa. Excellent for golfers and I'll definitely be doing more of that next time.

Beautiful villa El Valle

  • 5 of 5

Well,we have been to Murcia for the last 6 years & all in different villa's. This one exceeded all our dreams. Everything & more that you could ever want in the villa.Very clean,beautiful pool,all on one level & really didn't need to go out for the whole of our stay (but we did!) The master bedroom with en suite & dressing room was a very nice surprise & the other 2 bedrooms were very comfortable. Always love coming home to my own bed,but this one was just like home!

Very easy to find with the directions given,but you do need a car to get around.

Paul,the owner was very informative all the way leading up to our stay & nothing too much trouble.

Fantastic golf course & the views were stunning. A very relaxing time had by all & not a sound to be heard.

Hopefully we will return if Paul will have us in the near future!

Thanks Paul x

STUNNING! RELAXING! PEACEFUL!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks in this beautiful villa and cant wait to go back, it is massive!!! the photos are lovely but you cant grasp how big it really is until you are in there, the furnishings are first class and the onsuite master bedroom with seperate dressing room was a real treat to find, the views are lovely and the quietness was just what we needed, was there with my husband and 3 kids ages 15, 12 and 9 and they all loved it too, kids loved the pool and the wi fi, my husband was over the moon to have the sports channels and we loved watching Andy Murray win Wimbeldon!!!!!! there is a lovely clubhouse which quite reasonable and a small supermarket fo essentials but a car is definately needed to get about to bigger supermarkets like Mercadona or the Dos mares shopping centre, also for beach or days out. We went to Murcia, Torrevieja and playa flamenca a few times for dinner as we have been there before and wanted to visit restaurants we knew were good, but also did a lot of cooking in villa which we really enjoyed and had a few bbq's, the amercan style fridge was brilliant for instant water and ice so we used it constant as the weather was amazing. Andy the keyholder was a great help and a really nice guy, as was the staff at the clubhouse and the whole golf resort is very well maintained and secure. there is a PS3 in the house we didnt know about but not any games there so recommend you could take some if looking for a play on it, also there are games tables at clubhouse and a free gym that my husband used every day (while i lay in the sun snoozing!!!) i would 100% recommend this amazing villa and we cant wait to go back hopefully soon xxxx

Car: recommended

Whether you come for the day to visit, a week staying in one of our wonderful properties or just playing a round of golf, a game of tennis or paddle, you will take in the stunning location set with the mountain backdrop and peacefulness you will go way looking forward to returning. El Valle is surrounded by natural park land.

There are only 685 properties on the secure resort, 325 of these are villas with own pools and the remainder are fabulous apartments. El Valle is less than 25 minutes from Murcia Airport, around 15 minutes from the new airport at Corvera that is due to open at the end of 2011, or only 55 minutes from Alicante Airport.

Travel to the nearest beaches on the Mar Menor is just over 20 minutes away to soft white sand, water sports and a host of other activities, please see our activities section. Don’t forget you can hire one of our car pre-programmed satellite navigation systems to help you get there. A car is essential.

Golf: El Valle, a medium-length, par-71 golf course, is situated in a beautiful natural desert valley. The golf course is routed in a 'core' format that groups several holes together while keeping the surrounding development on the perimeter. This means many holes border other golf holes and not houses, creating a more open and natural golf experience.

Rather than length, the course relies on numerous subtle strategic elements to challenge golfers. This course puts a premium on accuracy, not power, and favours the intelligent player who can manage his or her game
