Fantastic location! - Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Spain but the first to La Manga, and from the moment we arrived at Playa Principe we all fell in love with this place!

Best location on the whole La Manga Strip. Walking distance to the Thomas Maestre Marina, restaurants, shops, cafes (Internet Cafe), banks.

The view from the balcony and every window in the apartment is fantastic- white sandy beach and blue sea. Sitting on the balcony at night was so relaxing, sipping a glass of good Spanish wine, listening to the sound of waves and watching the lights along the coast.!! Wow!!!

Highlights of our holiday were trips to historic city of Cartagena and ferry trips across Mar Menor to Santiago de Ribera to the weekly street Market. The ferry leaves from the marina every 2 hours and costs 4 euros/person. The bus to Cartagena has its first stop on the Strip and cost around 3 euros.

The building and the apartment are beautiful - spotlessly clean and only three apartments on the floor !!! Remember to wipe your feet when coming back from the beach!!!!

The housekeepers - wonderful couple! Very helpful and attentive, going out of their way to please!!!

The owners deserve the biggest applause - John always returned my emails in a timely manner and even set up a Paypal account for fast and secure payments.

Thank You John and Gill for a wonderful memories!!!

It was worth it to fly across Atlantic Ocean (7 hrs) to spend two weeks in your 5 star Luxury apartment in La Manga.!!!!

Hope to return there soon!

For Canadian travelers: very easy connection from Toronto to London Gatwick, with the same day Easyjet flight to Murcia- San Javier.

Highly recommended to anyone who appreciates beauty, luxury and serenity!!!!

Gorgeous beach, glorious weather, friendly people

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as beautiful as promised. We enjoyed being right on the beach, relaxing on the balcony at night, watching the fishermen. We enjoyed skinny dipping under the stars and going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the Mar Menor’s gentle waves. Just wonderful, and so quiet and peaceful.

This was one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed in. The apartment was luxurious, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and had everything you needed. It was home from home and in fact I could move in there permanently and not change a thing. My teenage son was so pleased with the wifi and choice of TV channels when he wanted to escape from the heat of the day (typical teenager!!). The location was beautifully tranquil and peaceful. The views from the windows and balconies were amazing. Everything was exactly as the description for the property but until you are actually there you cant fully comprehend it. Any correspondence I had with John, the owner was responded to immediately and was extremely helpful. Also Hayley and Tony who manage the apartment were very helpful and lovely people too. I certainly will have no problem recommending this property to my family and friends, even strangers who will read this review please believe me when I say this is an amazing property. If your looking for a holiday in a luxury apartment in a superb quiet, peaceful and tranquil location then this is the place for you. There is a well stocked supermarket close by should you wish to cook which we did because the kitchen was so well equipped and we could appreciate the views from either the inside dining table or the balcony table and chairs. However if dining out on holiday is your thing then there are some beautiful restaurants within walking distance at the harbour, there's even a Burger King!!! A bus runs regularly up and down the strip for a mere €1.15 if you wish to travel down the strip where you will find a range of other restaurants and shops. The beach was beautiful and safe with a lifeguard in attendance and on the opposite side of the road (Mar Menor) you could hire pedalos and jet skis there was even a large sea play area for kids. All in all this is one of the most amazing places we have stayed in. 11 out of 10 John !!

A truly magnificent place for families and couples alike, who enjoy unadulterated laid-back luxury beachside holidays .

The apartment is located within 5 minutes walking distance of the very Cosmopolitan Tomas Maestre Marina with its vast array of high class restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets, banks etc.

If beach walking is your interest then you can walk for hours on the beautiful beaches from just outside of the apartment.

If sightseeing and shopping is your thing, the beautiful historic Port and Town of Cartagena and the bustling capital city of Murcia are well worth a visit.

Within a short drive is the world famous La Manga Golf Club Resort, where many of the World’s International football teams can often be seen using the 5 star sporting facilities.

If traditional Spain interests you, at the end of the strip there is Cablo de Palos a small fishing village, with its many excellent waterside fish restaurants.

Santiago de la Ribera is another must visit, which can be reached by a leisurely ferry service, operating from the Marina. Experience Spanish culture and cuisine at its very best.

Our holiday home is surrounded by white sandy beaches and clear waters of the Mediterranean and Mar Menor Seas, situated on the unique and beautiful La Manga Strip, reputed to have the best average all year round climate in Spain, boasting an average of 320 days of Sunshine per year!)

The region is blessed by the mild Mediterranean climate, temperatures range between 15 - 22C in winter. Summer temperatures vary between 30 - 40C. The average annual temperature is 18C.

La Manga Strip has a unique position in Europe, between two Seas, the Mediterranean Sea and the crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor.

This part of Spain is famous for its salt lakes which has a major knock on effect on humidity levels, and as a result the air is much dryer than in other parts of Spain & Europe. The low humidity levels coupled with a mild climate, means the World Health Organisation have rated this part of Spain one of the healthiest climates in the world.

At certain times of the year, Flamingos can often be seen at both ends of the strip, feeding in the salt lakes.

The La Manga Del Mar Menor / La Manga Strip area.

We are located directly on the beach at the northern end of the La Manga Strip close to the Marina.

From here you can hire a boat, go scuba diving, fishing etc. There is also a ferry which sails to Santiago de la Ribera every 2 hours and a tour boat which sails into the Med and around the islands in the Mar Menor.

The Marina itself offers a wealth of international restaurants including French, Asian, Italian, Norwegian, Greek, Mexican as well as traditional Spanish restaurant.

The long promenades and boulevards make this an ideal location for the elderly or disabled as well as the most enthusiastic sports enthusiasts. In fact La Manga has something to offer everyone.

During the summer, the beaches offer a wide variety of water-sports, sailing, powerboat trips and scuba diving.

For golfing enthusiasts, we are approximately 20/25 minutes from the world famous La Manga Golf Club and many other renowned Golf Clubs in the area.

For beach lovers. Paradise found! The beaches in La Manga are just beautiful, the Mediterranean beaches and the Mar Menor beaches are perfect for family holidays.

Everything is within walking distance, plus there is also a good bus service operating up and down the strip.

There are also many traditional Street Markets used by the locals and tourists alike, whereby they are great for stocking up on really good quality fruit and veg at really low prices.

Cabo de Palos – Sunday morning
