The monitors will greet children with an arranged agenda of play and sport activities as well as workshops that change depending on the weekday. Every day is an opportunity to learn while playing, from painting and drawing to imaginative plays and puppet theatre.

There is a larger supermarket and further grocery shops in the nearby town of Los Alcazares, as well as some nice boutique and gift shops.

There is also a huge array of places to eat in Los Alcazares, which is only 10-minutes away from the resort. Here you will find everything from Spanish to English cuisine, Italian to Chinese and International.

BEACHES & WATERSPORTS

The Mar Menor is the largest coastal lagoon in Europe, offering a large choice of sandy beaches and calm bathing conditions, with sunbed and parasol hire. The Mar Menor is shallow, with warm water, a non-tidal haven for watersports enthusiasts and those who enjoy the safety of this tranquil “little sea”. It is ideal for swimming in all year round. The urban blue flag sandy beach of Los Alcazares just 10 minutes from the golf resort. In summer, the water in the Mar Menor, can be 5°C (9°F) warmer than the Mediterranean making it very popular with sailors and windsurfers. The Mar Menor Nautical Station is a group of 20 watersports centres in the area offering sailing, windsurfing, canoeing courses and jet skiing. For a relaxing day or half day out, take a boat trip to one of the five small volcanic islands in the middle of the Mar Menor. Diving and snorkelling is also available, 30 minutes drive away from the golf resort at Cabo de Palos, one of the best places in Europe for diving, due to its unusual marine geography. Here the continental shelf is so narrow, that there is an immediate drop and this coupled with the warm water, means it has one of the biggest abundances of marine life in the Western Mediterranean.

BIKE HIRE

You will find bicycle tracks located around the resort perfect to use with a hired bicycle. Many bikes are available to hire from the commercial area. The area around the Mar Menor is made for cyclists, a bicycle being the best way to explore the natural parks, beaches and open areas of the Mar Menor. Wide promenades with cycle lanes run along the sandy fringes of the Mar Menor.

HORSE RIDING

Horse riding along the beach is very popular; the beautiful Andalusian horses carry you through some of the most striking areas through the Calblanque National Park. Once you reach the wide beach areas, galloping along the beach is an experience always remembered. Alternatively, the popular mountain hack is walking and trotting around the mountains. The trained leaders will guide you up and around the stunning Murcian Mountains that will provide you with breathtaking views of the beautiful area. This mountain hack is entirely off road away from traffic to let you enjoy the true beauty of the region. The Rancho de la Fuenta Stables are located 20 minutes from the golf resort at the town of Los Belones. With around 60 horses available for both adults and children, there’s enough to accommodate any size of group you are in.

LOS ALCAZARES

This quaint town is perfect for dining out. The popular golden sandy beach has sunbeds and parasols available to hire. Along the promenade there is an abundance of snack bars and restaurants to stop for lunch or to venture back to in the evening to experience bars to suit everyone’s tastes.

MURCIA

The fabulous city of Murcia is the capital of the Costa Calida. One of the famous visiting points is the Cathedral de Santa Maria, which is located at the plaza del Cardinal Belluga. Finished in the 15th century, the cathedral is the most impressive monument of Murcia and you can spot it from miles away because of its 96-metre tower which houses no less than 25 bells.

CARTAGENA

20 minutes from the golf resort is this charming, compact, coastal city that became great during the Roman times when Hannibal set off from it with his elephants on his journey to Rome. There are so many things to see, with over 12 museums, 10 buildings of interest, 4 noteworthy churches and a whole host of monuments not to mention the archaeological sites. You can take the informative Tourist Bus or perhaps sail out to sea on the Tourist Boat. A cruise ship may even be visiting, as Cartagena’s port is the 3rd deepest in the world.

AIRPORTS

The most common airports to fly to if you are staying at Mar Menor Resort is either Murcia (San Javier) Airport at approximately 15 minutes away, or the further out Alicante Airport which deals in a higher number of passengers.

About Jackie

Hi my name is Jackie. Craig and I purchased this fantastic penthouse holiday home in November 2016 after a brilliant week's holiday at this resort.

Jackie purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Jackie chose Torre-Pacheco

This property just ticks all our boxes, it is light and airy, with its south facing sun terrace overlooking the 10th green. There are 15 communal swimming pools at the resort. It has everything we love; sun, golf, bbq, swimming pools, restaurants, beach, tennis, spa, bike hire, and stunning scenery.

What makes this apartment unique

This is No 1 of the 6 courses on the Jack Nicklaus "Bear Trail", the others are within 40 minutes, its a golfing paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Returned home in May from an amazing 2 weeks in this fantastic penthouse property.

The Penthouse itself is very clean, tidy and well-maintained, it is comfortably furnished, with everything required for easy living. Air conditioning, cosy sofas, satellite TV with all the favourite British channels and the added bonus of free WiFi.

There is a south facing terrace with stunning views and ample space for sunbathing, reading or just relaxing.

We really enjoyed evenings on the waterfront at Los Alcazares, just 10 minutes away with many excellent bars and restaurants. Its also an easy drive to Cartegena, Murcia and Alicante if you want to do a bit of sightseeing.

Amazing location on the Mar Menor golf resort which has everything you need on site.

The resort is beautiful to stroll around as everything is pristine and peaceful.

We visited the local beaches and tried some of the water sports that were on offer. The Jack Nicklaus Golf Trail provided us with an amazing golf experience where we managed to play all six golf courses.

A special mention must go to the Penthouse owners Craig and Jackie who were great to work with and nothing was too much trouble.

We would strongly recommend this property and hope to return next year.

Great apartment, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have just left this great apartment on Mar Menor Golf Resort. The apartment was fresh and immaculately clean. Close to the local Spar and only a short walk to the pools. They hosts are great, friendly people and nothing is too much hassle, even the lift to and from the airport. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Jackie and Craig for a lovely relaxing break.

A fantastic, clean place to relax

  • 5 of 5

A great little apartment to relax in on a fantastic resort. The property is spotlessly clean and has everything you need.

Jackie was an excellent host, answering any queries quickly. The balcony is fantastic for sunbathing, and the nearest pool is a 2 minute walk away.

I would thoroughly recommend!

Owner's Response: Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay, happy to answer any queries to help holiday makers get the most out of visiting the Mar Menor. We also think the large south facing terrace is fab, not just for sunbathing, but also sunset barbecues too!

Convenient base to explore Murcia

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to a fantastic welcome by Jackie, who was quick to respond throughout our booking and stay. The apartment was lovely and clean with everything we needed. The Mar Menor Golf Club is well looked after and clean. The local on site supermarket was on the same road just a 2 min stroll that sold freshly baked bread and pastries every morning. The pool was located just a few minutes away. There was a parking bay for your hire car. During our stay we visited Cartegena which had some great shops and tapas bars. Our favourite beach was Playa Las Higuericas in San Pedro, lots of parking and great waves. There are a hugh amount of restaurants to explore in the area around Los Alcazares, some of our favourites include Bhacuras, New Luisines and Little Italy. For the best steak in Murcia go to El Gallego in Pilar de la Horadada, they are hugh and we struggled to finish them!! A challenge in itself. Lots of nationalities around and the Spanish holiday here. Very welcoming and lots of hidden gems!!

Owner's Response: Really glad Louise and her family enjoyed the Penthouse, it is indeed lovely to have freshly baked bread every morning only a minute away! We hope their two children had fun finding all 14 communal pools. We will be taking them up on the steak challenge too!
