The Costa Calida/Murcia region: With over 315 days of sunshine every year it is little wonder that the Costa Calida means 'Warm Coast' and the unspoilt inland waters of the Mar Menor, the largest natural lagoon in Europe offer safe and warm water ideal for families including young children. The mud baths and spas around the Mar Menor are believed to have great healing properties for aliments such as rheumatism and arthritis.

The World Health Organization recently declared the beautiful Capital City of Murcia the cleanest area in Spain.

Murcia is an extremely historical, friendly city that prides itself in maintaining its traditions.

The fabulous fiestas, fantastic food, beautiful scenery, glorious soft sand beaches and the friendliest of people make this an exceptional region of Spain.

The ancient city of Cartagena is a short distance from Mar de Cristal either by car or train, and was founded by the Carthaginians in the year 227BC.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, quality apartment in a quiet yet convenient area, one of the very best holiday lets we've stayed in. It was comfortable, light and airy, has everything you need, including wifi, A/C, sunloungers and everything worked perfectly. The attractive pool area has a good sized pool and is very well maintained, with real grass and plenty of trees for shade. In my view, the website photos don't really do the apartment justice – particularly the views from the rooftop terrace.

The bonus is that the owners are a pleasure to deal with. I'd give the whole thing 5 stars. Strongly recommend.

Our Family Holiday Visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i took our 6 month old son on his first holiday abroad. We chose this apartment and we were very happy when we arrived and saw the place. The appartment was just as it had been decribed, it was so homely it had everything we needed, and having a little one it was very handy as we spent alot of time in the appartment. The neighbours were so friendly aswell and made it a very comfortable stay. I would strongley recomend it to others. The swimming pool area was clean and well looked after.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we have spent a lot of time and money furnishing the apartment to a very high standard, as we feel that people like yourselves save all year to have a holiday, so when they arrive they should be able to relax and enjoy themselves. Whenever we go over to the apartment we are all ways buying things for it so if you do come back next year, you never know what you might find? Stuart.

Great Spring Breaks

  • 5 of 5

We have had two great holidays in this lovely apartment. The owner provides good customer service so we would recommend this property to relatives and friends.

A great location as the beach is very close and plenty of facilities like tennis and padel tennis courts a five minute walk away. We found it ideal for walking and cycilng along the coast and to local markets.

There are many good restaurants locally and within a few miles so eating out is not expensive. All in all a great experience.

Home from home, lovely, comfy feel

  • 5 of 5

Second visit to this apartment, and brilliant again. The 2 bed apartment is a great size, with a balcony, upstairs terrace and a shared pool. We felt really at home here, and was a good base for visiting the area. The beach is great, shallow water in the lagoon, so is safer for children. We had plenty of trips to the golf resort for the good restaurants, La Manga strip and Cartagena to see the castle and naval museum around the port. We have a fantastic holiday here every time.

September sunshine

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well furnished comfortable apartment, just as described. We loved the private sun terrace, and it's beautiful views. The balcony provides a shaded area, providing a choice between shade or sun. Neither are overlooked.The pool and surrounding area were clean and well maintained.

There is a lovely promenade to walk along the sea front within easy walking distance of the apartment. The beach at Mar de Cristal was beautiful, the sea is shallow, so well suited to families.

We had a very relaxing holiday in the warm September sunshine. We would highly recommend this apartment,and hope to make a return visit.

We stayed in this apartment in May 2009 after staying in the area the past 2 years running. We have 2 children aged 9 and 5 and can hoesly say this is a more than comfotable apartment with everything you could ask for. The kids are never out of the pool and we loved the unspoilt feel of the area which is very Spanish. We made full use of the SunTerrace enjoying Al Fresco meals and graet views.

The only thing I would add is that a car although not neccessary is beneficial to explore the local area and restaraunts.

Mar de Cristal has always been known for its crystal clear waters and is perfectly situated to take advantage of the towns of El Algar and Los Belones and the harbour town of Cartagena.

Mar de Cristal has excellent safe beaches, a tiled promenade and a marina. The Mar Menor is indeed crystal clear and is a mecca for all kinds of watersports, sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, scuba or just swimming.

The development is just a short distance from the popular La Manga area where you can enjoy the top class La Manga Golf Club Resort with its lively international atmosphere and many amenities such as casinos, shops, restaurants and of course the three championship golf courses.The World famous La Manga Club being just a 5 minute drive, the 3 courses of Villamartin, Campoamor and Las Ramblas 30 mintues North.

There are several protected areas within a short drive, Calblanque and Salinas bird sanctuary being 5 mintues away.
