Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Puerto de Mazarrón - Parque del Faro Apartments

Parque del Faro, Puerto de Mazarron - Mazarron, Murcia, Costa Calida, Spain

Spacious self-catering apt with secure underground parking though car not necessity owing to perfect location.Situated on the neck of a grassy headland with miles of clean, safe beaches on either side and close to the delightful new marina and stylish promenade.This immaculate fully furnished self-catering flat overlooks a park which mixes palm and jakaranda tree lined gardens with play areas to suit all ages from infants to teenagers to 100 yr olds and includes swings, skate park, 5 aside football pitch as well as an outdoor gym.

We believe we have equipped the apartment with everything you will need for a happy holiday. Sleeps 5/6 - 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and second with twin beds plus sofa bed in the lounge. The large balcony overlooks the lovely park and is equipped with patio table and 4 chairs (others can be moved outside) Communal solarium. The lounge and double room have lovely views of park and UK, French and Spanish TV, computer, CD player, database of 60 DVDs, PS2 and games, traditional board games and varied library. Air con provided on meter basis. PC and full Wi-Fi Internet access included in the price. Hairdryer, picnic and beach equipment. inc 2 Bodyboards child/adult. Adapter plugs provided. Well equipped kitchen. Washing machine, iron and ironing board.

Puerto de Mazarron, Murcia: Parque del Faro apartments are nestled on a headland in a perfect location for access to all local amenities, beaches, shops and harbour with its wonderful restaurants, promenade and views. Watch the fishermen bringing in their catch in the commercial harbour or admire the luxury yachts in the newly rebuilt leisure marina. Why not walk up to the Faro (lighthouse) and watch the sun rise or set in spectacular fashion. The atmosphere is relaxed and the views over the bay and behind to the mountains are wonderful. This is not a place for those seeking package holiday entertainment but one where you can recharge the batteries on a wide choice of beaches, enjoy the local sports scene or simply watch the world go by. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets but if you want a McDonald's you can always go to Cartagena which is 20 minutes away (approx 6 euro by bus ) and also has a rich Roman history, including amphitheatre 19th century submarine & museums which will keep historians of any age occupied for hours. Take a trip around the bay in Cartagena and learn more about the history of this ancient harbour which still caters for submarines and ocean liners or take a dolphin watching cruise in Puerto de Mazarron. There really is something for everyone!

Mazarron has a wonderful array of beaches to suit every taste. The promenade beach follows the sweep of the bay towards La Azohia to the East and is perfect for children aged 0 to 100! To the West there are fine sandy beaches with surf and beach Volleyball at Bolnuevo. Playa de la Reya is a lovely cove with fine sand next to the smaller marina. Restaurants can be found all along the coastline along with tree lined promenades and walk ways. A tourist information pack is provided in the apartment with details of many different sites, activities and restaurant suggestions and recommendations.

The Castillitos or 'Guns of Mazarron' as they are affectionately known lie to the east of La Azohia at the top of a mountain road which is not for the faint hearted. The drive and views are fabulous and military historians will find the 14 inch Vickers built guns and now derelict buildings fascinating. The drive from Isla Plana through the 'forgotten valley' is wonderful and the old customs house which looks like something out of Zoro is worth a stop.

Further inland the fort at Lorca provides a fascinating insight into the history of the area but beware you may be tapped on the shoulder by a medieval knight. The Sierra Espuna provides miles of mountain and forest trails for walkers and cyclists and picnic areas as well as scenic drives and the opportunity to see wild boar and North African mountain goats.

At the end of September Cartagena comes alive with lavish re-enactments of the Roman defeat of new Carthage. Some 2000 locals take part in this event and families are loyal to their roots! Mazarron's fiesta is in mid April (see Tourist info website)

A Phoenician wreck lies in the bay just off Isla beach in Puerto de Mazarron and the Roman fish factory next to the harbour is fascinating.

Out of season Puerto de Mazarron provides warm weather and relaxation away from the colder northern European winters. In season it is a vibrant family holiday resort catering for all interests and ages. A traditional holiday destination for Spanish families which is becoming recognised as a little gem by savvy visitors who return year on year.

Could not be Better

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described. As others have mentioned, the location is ideal for both the town restaurants and beaches (although not necessary, a car is an advantage to explore the area and get to the further afield and quieter beaches). The flat is very well equipped and comfortable. Of particular note is the provision of beach equipment (chairs, brollies, mats and a cool bag). Also, the underground parking space is a real bonus: firstly, so that you get into a cool car and secondly so that you are able to park at busy times (weekends & Bank Holidays) when street parking is hard/impossible to find.

One minor problem when the internet connection failed was quickly sorted out with a short text to Anne, who contacted the provider.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in our apartment. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and the facilities of Puerto de Mazarron. We hope we will be able to welcome you again in the future. We are continually looking for ways to improve the experience of our guests and are in the process of fitting a water filter which will mean that the tap water, which is already perfectly drinkable, is improved and is comparable to bottled water. Wifi connectivity issues are rare and as you say are quickly remedied by our excellent provider.

Great accommodation in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I've hesitated to holiday in Spain because I thought it would be overrun by other British people. What a revelation this was! We went outside the school holidays and found Puerto de Mazarron to be full of life, and most of it Spanish. Everyone was extremely friendly too. There are loads of restaurants with good food that's not very expensive, and beach after beach that you can walk or drive to. We hired a car and had a day out in the mountains as well as the town of Cartagena - there is literally masses to do in the area. The flat is absolutely perfect, with everything you could need (including WiFi!) and it was great being able to park securely under the building and catch the lift up to the appartment. It's clean, modern and comfortable. I would definitely recommend both the flat and the location, and will be doing so to friends and family. We hope to go again too. Thank you Anne and Geoff for a wonderful holiday.

great location spotlessly clean comfortable

  • 5 of 5

we really enjoyed our stay in this lovely clean apartment it was so convenient for everything and one of the most relaxing places we have stayed in

great beaches, lovely promenade, lots of good places to eat especially the local ones. a must for all visitors should be to the guns at Castillious and a visit to the Sierra Espunas where the scenery is terrific and the views are out of this world . Also this is a great place for walkers but if you intend to really hike up here take good boots and plenty of water the effort will be more than rewarded

I would recommend you hire a car if you stay more than a week as there is much to see in the area

overall a great and very relaxing holiday in a super location

Wonderful Holiday - we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Reluctant to write this review as it may open the floodgates to bookings which limit our opportunity to return!

We had a wonderful holiday in the resort- made perfect by the quality of the accommodation and location of the apartment. The apartment is spacious, immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and offers every mod con a family could wish for...and more. The location is ideal for the local beaches and marina. It really is only a few minutes to all the amenities and you certainly don't need a car to enjoy a stay here. There's a wealth of restaurants and cafes with a great price range to suit all pockets. We particularly enjoyed a short walk in the late afternoon up the hill behind the apartment to the Faro café/bar where you can sip a drink and look out over the stunning view of the marina and coastline. Fabulous!

We actually did hire a car and explored the local coastline and ventured inland to Lorca and other mountain villages which are within an hour's drive or more. Beautiful scenery and easy driving.

All in all, a highly recommended apartment in a great location which will provide the holidaymaker with an ideal base for chilling or exploring. Hope you enjoy it.......just not when we want to go! We will be in touch Anne- many thanks for providing such a lovely apartment for our lovely June holiday.
