About Solfrid Welsh
Ken and Solfrid Welsh
Solfrid Welsh purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Solfrid Welsh chose San Javier
We spent a lot of time looking for what is effectively our second home, and ended up choosing Murcia and Roda Golf Resert for a number of reasons. The area has a micro climate which is absolutely lovely; not too hot in summer and with less rain than the surrounding areas. There are a multitude of things to do in the immediate area so that if we want to do something other than relax we can. Finally the Roda resort is really special; the buildings are lovely and finished to a high standard, plus the open layout gives a feeling of privacy. All in all, just what we were looking for. We have tried to make our apartment as comfortable as possible, and sincerely hope that you will enjoy staying there every bit as much as we do.

The property was everything we could have asked for. Well laid out and spacious with all the facilities you need. Very clean and tidy. The pool area was well maintained and clean, a great area for the kids to enjoy. Look forward to returning in the future.
Many thanks and very happy you had a good time! We would be more than happy to welcome you back in the future!
the apartment is spacious and well appointed.We did have aproblem with ants but there was spray available.The sun loungers were old and two were broken.Very quiet but the area was well maintained.Overall would recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful holiday in a good location for getting around.
Lovely apartment in great location
Clean and comfortable apartment that has all expected facilities. Location is very good for access into Los Alcazeras and the local area.
Would highly recomend
A very easy to find and well located property. Quiet as expected, as we went for a week from 13th-20th October. Accommodation has everything you need and more. Couldn't believe we had the pool all to ourselves for the whole week. The owners and caretakers of the property couldn't have been more helpful before, during and after our stay.We hired a car for our stay, which i would recommend. However if you are looking for a holiday just to relax around a lovely pool only feet from your accommodation, then this is the one. Would we return ? Yes but just the two of us, very hard to please a 15-16 year old teenage boy.
Happy you had a good stay!
Excellent three bedroom spacious apartment. 😊
Highly recommend this beautiful three bedroom apartment only ten minute drive from Murcia airport. The property is of a very high standard and as everything you require. The owners are very approachable and respond to emails generally within a day. There is a key holder who is also available whom live locally should you have any problems who respond within the day also. We would highly recommend this apartment . We have been visiting Roda Golf & Beach Resort in Los Alcazares for several years and I have to say the apartment is by far this best apartment we have stayed in. There is two communal swimming pools adult and children's overlooking the apartment. If you or looking for a relaxing holiday then this is the place to visit. Los Alcazares is located in the South Eastern Mediterranean coastline of Costa Calida in the Province of Murcia. The beech is located within a five minute drive where you can access the local cafes and bars should you wish to do so. There is markets on each day which are also within five/ ten minute drive away where you can purchase there local produce. There is plenty of places to eat out like an English chip shop / beautiful restaurants like Hemingways etc.
Mr & Mrs Saunders ( happy holidays) 😎�
Happy to hear you enjoyed your holiday and our apartment! Hopefully see you again in the future!
In the many years we have been visiting Roda and have stayed in all types of apartments, this is by far the best, the layout, position, quality is excellent and the owners are a pleasure, the only disappointment is not being able to spend more time there !
It is 3 km, or 10 minutes drive, to the nearest Blue Flag beaches of the Mar Menor. Mar Menor is a huge fairly shallow lagoon, with beautifully maintained sandy and shallow beaches. Being almost enclosed the water is warm, making it suitable for young children. On the ocean side of the La Manga Strip side or to the villages to the north of the lagoon you find stunning locations to swim in the Mediterranean. If you wish you can try kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, diving or just take a boat-trip across.
To the north lies the villages of San Pedro de Pinatar and Lo Pagan, with beautiful beaches. Lo Pagan is famous for their mud baths; free to the public and considered very healthy and therapeutic for the skin.
Roda is only 10 minutes from San Javier airport or 55 minutes from Alicante airport by car. There are plenty of taxies available at the airports as well as carhire. Please remember that Spain can have temperatures in the 30ies during the daytime in summer and we therefore recommend our guests to hire a car. Our caretakers at Roda will be able to supply details of local car hires at San Javier and Alicante airport.

From the Roda resort it is only 3 kilometers to the many fantastic blue flag beaches of the Mar Menor (the largest natural seawater lagoon in Europe, also known for its healing saline water and therapeutic mud baths).

The information booklet in our apartment will give you further details.
