2 Bedroom, penthouse apartment overlooking golf course.
About John Slater
I live in England with my wife and daughter. My wife and I both work and holiday in our apartment at the Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort as well as taking vacations in other parts of the world. We love the mediteranean climate and food.
John Slater purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why John Slater chose Murcia
The apartment has been furnished with a touch of elegance and luxury that is hard to find in other apartments on the resort. There is a large swimming pool right next to the apartment with hotel quality sun beds provided exclusively for La Vista guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Hacienda Riquelme is one of many resorts located around a series of golf courses that make up the Nike Golf Trail. The resort has its own supermarket, bars and restaurants as well as 24hr security in a closed gate community. This region of Spain has retained its natural beauty with its national park historic buildings in Murcia, Cartegena and Lorca. Only 15 minutes from the Hacienda there are golden sandy beaches and the clear warm waters of the Mediterranean sea.

What a great decision.....
What an amazing apartment, clean and beautifully furnished and the kitchen is a joy to be in! It is always a worry when you book somewhere you've not been to before but this was superb. We had contact with John a couple of times and he was extremely friendly and helpful and came straight back to us. The golf course is interesting to say the least and facilities on the area are superb. We would definitely recommend anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay to book here. Hopefully we will return!
Immaculate penthouse apartment
We are a family of 4 who stayed in this apartment in August 2016 for a week.
It was a fantastic 2 bedroom penthouse apartment, with a large well equipped kitchen and spacious balcony that had stylish and comfortable furnishings with shade. The decor throughout was immaculate and all mod-cons were catered for. Of particular note, both bedrooms have their own separate air-conditioning unit which made for a very comfortable stay in the summer heat. Around the adjacent pool (which was never too busy), there were 4 'proper' sun loungers for our use.
The owner John, was extremely prompt, professional and efficient in all of our dealings with him. We cannot recommend highly this apartment highly enough and will be looking to return again soon.
Thank you for submitting a review.
Great value for money in ideal location
The apartment is located on a very well maintained golf resort with visible security patrolling day & night. The pool area kept both my boys ((aged 9 & 14) entertained and is clean, tidy & free from litter. The apartment directly overlooks the 14th tee, tennis courts & football kickabout area, which made access for my boys very easy! They also thoroughly enjoyed a daily visit to the driving range, courtesy of you supplying the golf clubs thanks. The actual apartment was also very comfortable and clean on arrival. However, on a minor point we didn't receive a change of bed linen during our 11 night stay - did they forget? Must visits would have to include Cartagena (fantastic Roman remains), Murcia (gorgeous cathedral), watching the evening volleyball matches on the beach at Los Alcazares and also enjoying steak at the Celtic Steak Bar & probably one of the best chinese meals we've ever had at 'Run' restaurant in the town (5 mins from the beach). Overall, a really good family holiday thanks John!
The region benefits from an average temp of 21c and 320 days of sunshine a year which. It is said to be a mini micro climate and highly recommended for anyone suffering with joint pains, due to the dry climate.
There are many beautiful sandy beaches all along the coast. The Mar Menor is a large sea water lagoon which is one of the cleanest, safest, warmest waters in the Med.
Murcia City is the capital of this region, it is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city only 20 minutes drive from Hacienda Riquelme, its main sights are its cathedral and historic architecture along with lots of modern shops.
San Pedro del Pinater: has all facilities for a great many water sports, such as sailing, scuba diving or windsurfing.
The port of Cartegena is 30 mins drive away and worth a visit, it is famous for its quiet fishing village of Cabos de Palos with a fine selection of fish.
