Fantastic apartment with great views of Mar Minor and La Manga
The property was in a great location with easy access to both Bella Luz and the main strip but far enough away for a peaceful retreat. The apartment has everything you will need for family break with plenty of parking if you have more than one car. The patio/balcony area offers a good sunbathing area from sunrise to early evening and you have easy access to one of 2 outdoor pools and one indoor pool only a couple of minutes walk away.The booking experience was very good and Andrew was the perfect host, all info was supplied in good time and accurate.Having stayed at several properties on La Manga we can recommend this property and would stay again . Many Thanks,
The Dutton family.
Thank you for your wonderful reply and review. So pleased you had a great holiday and loved the apartment. See you again soon
Los Olivos, La Manga
Nice apartment and a good location but internal drains smell terrible. Would not visit again.
Lovely La Manga
Having visited Los Olivos La Manga before we were excited to be going back but to a different apartment, we were by no means disappointed the apartment had everything we needed as a family of young adults & middle age adults, it was very spacious which gave us all our own space & not on top of each other it is very bright and airy too. After spending time by the lovely pool we enjoyed lunch on the very large balcony & enjoyed the amazing views. The bars & restaurants are just a short walk away where you can enjoy your evenings, "La Finca" restaurant gets 10/10. The whole holiday got 10/10 from my family & can't wait to go back.
Perfect for everyone
We stayed here with friends and it suited us all perfectly and exceeded our expectations. The men were more than content playing golf all day, relaxing by the pool in the afternoon and cooking on the barbecue on our terrace for the evening. The girls meanwhile enjoyed the sun filled huge terrace overlooking the Strip during the day, relaxing at the pools and exploring the cute restaurants at lunch. An occasional game of tennis gave us an excuse to carry on relaxing!
The apartment was stocked with everything we needed. The bathrooms were luxuriously sized. Plenty of space indoors for us all too should we have wanted to spend more time inside. The location of the apartment was fantastic. We had lots of choices of pools within 5 minutes (or less) walk from the apartment - we could choose the most quiet one! The nearest pool actually has an indoor pool too. Would love to come again.
La Manga club
Having returned in early October 2013 from La Manga, after enjoying a fantastic holiday in Los Olivios we feel a more realistic review would be appropriate. The apartment was surprisingly large, with a very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were bigger than average and the bathrooms clean and spacious. The dining, sitting room was excellent, with plenty of seating to accommodate family and friends. This area led on to a spectacular balcony, which has to have one of the best views of the strip I have seen. Due to the unusual high temperatures we benefited from an efficient air conditioning system during the night and the amazing swimming pool during the day which was so close to the apartment and which we had to ourselves for the entire week. Incredible! Having just read the review by Hugo, I can only pose the question, was he staying in the same apartment as us? I doubt it, maybe he picked up the wrong keys!
We took our twin 2 year old boys and grandparents to La Manga, for a bit of autumn sun. We found the place very clean and tidy on arrival, and was surprised how well equipped if was. The kitchen had everything you'd need, and the big TV, DVD and Sky box was a great bonus. The rooms are all of a good size, and the bathrooms were also fine. The balcony is great with loads of space to eat and longe, with an amazing view. We found the resort great for us and the kids, with Several pools with 1 min walk, as well as bars, restaurants and shops within 5 mins. Great tennis and golf setup for those who wish, whilst the resort beach was very secluded. Recommend to all ages.

There is also a luxurious spa at La Manga Club which boasts a 25 metre indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi along with a range of beauty treatments.
The nearest beach (La Cala) is less than a mile away (the terrain is steep and therefore travel by car is recommended). There are lots of beaches in the local area including the beautiful, long, sandy beaches at Calblanque (10 mins drive) and further beaches along La Manga Strip.
La Manga Club is serviced by airlines that fly into both Murcia International and Alicante airports. Murcia International airport is a 30 minute drive away and Alicante airport is just over an hours drive away.
While a lot of visitors never feel the need to leave La Manga Club, there are lots of places to visit should you decide to have a change of scenery. In the apartment you will find a book full of information about local places of interest. This includes the village of Los Belones which is approximately 5-10 minutes by car and has a selection of shops, bars and restaurants. The town of Cartagena is a short drive away (less than 30 minutes by car) and has a variety of historical attractions to enjoy along with some fantastic shops. Cabo de Palos, a very charming fishing village, is approximately 15-minutes by car and boasts a harbour, excellent fish restaurants and a large Sunday morning market.
