Good sized property great location
Property is in a great location for bars, restaurants and 10mins approx walk to the beach. Everything you need is at the property but would recommend air con in the upstairs bedroom. The only issue we had during our stay was using the fantastic sized swimming pool - very strict rules and over the top life guards (pool police). No inflatables, food drink, etc. We reported this to the owners whilst on holiday - who were looking into this. Hopefully this will be sorted out for other holiday makers to enjoy a peaceful stay.
Villa is ok. Ideally situated for bars and restaurants. Car needed for beach. Loads of huge cockroaches in villa. Had to buy sprays and traps. Husband now having to seal gaps in bathroom. Not relaxing holiday we had planned. Staying out as much as possible. Loads of ants. Had to throw food out. Been coming to Murcia region for 10 years now. Had ants. Not as many as this and never seen cockroaches like this. Not even when we travelled to India.
Ideal family holiday
This is a fantastic holiday location. We have just spent 10 brilliant days here and our whole family loved it. The villa is within walking distance of all the local attractions. We spent most of our evenings in the local bars and restaurants, just a few minutes walk from the villa. This area has an open air play area for the kids so the younger ones are guaranteed company. We really enjoyed the Zenia boulevard as well. There were great restaurants, super shops and plenty to keep the kids occupied, from bowling, to amusements, movie screenings, live bands and the water fountains for the kids. In terms of the villa its self. We have nothing but great comments to make. It's well looked after. The owners were more than pleasant to deal with. Babs was fab! On hand at all times to help with any questions or queries. We were very grateful to both Babs and Henry and would definitely score them a 10 out of 10 for hospitality! The pool area is one of the best I've ever seen. Lovely surroundings and well maintained in all aspects. We made great family memories and look forward to returning in the future.
Just spent a great 2 weeks at this superbly located villa. Well laid out internally with good outside front patio. Also driveway to side and a sun terrace upstairs. Located across the road from the Flamenca Centro Commercial, which has plenty restaurants and several Bars. Rocky's is situated to the side of this and would thoroughly recommend. Super Cor supermarket located here and provided everything you need for day to day supplies and Lidl is not much further away. The Saturday Market is a nice 10 min stroll away and the Boulevard another 5 mins.
The Beach is approx 10/15 min stroll (we had a toddler and pram) and spent most of the last week going regularly to the beach and Cafe del Mar - great coffees and snacks. (next to Surfers on the front).
I would thoroughly recommend the villa, everything we needed was there for us. Ruth the owner was very pleasant and helpful to deal with and provided a Travel Cot on request. Also stair gates were in the Villa. Babs (in spain) was there to meet and greet us on arrival at the villa and is close by if any problems had arisen. We would definitely stay at this villa again and hope to do so in the future.
Many thanks for your kind appreciative review of our villa and of our keyholder . Look forward to seeing you again , yours Ruth,
It was a very nice house. It was close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We would love to come back again.
The beach is only a 5 minute walk away from the villa. The beach is a beautiful clean beach with blue flag status. There are sun-loungers available and an on beach bar. A lifeguard is also present in the summer months.
