Great location in secure gated community, 3 pools; 10mins from Murcia airport
We are a couple with three young children, living in Yorkshire, England. For many years we have rented private apartments for our holidays, booked from Owners Direct. We finally decided we'd like to buy our own place, furnish it beautifully, and rent it out for others to enjoy. We viewed over 20 properties and this was our favourite by some distance. We have owned our apartment since February 2015 and successfully rented it to dozens of guests since then.
Steve purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Steve chose Los Alcázares
We viewed properties up and down the Costa Calida and southern Costa Blanca and found Los Alcazares was the location that had everything we were looking for within walking distance, and close to the airport. We believe Puerto Marina is the best secure community in the town.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the child-friendliness of the complex, pools and local area, as well as the proximity of the beach, the long beachfront promenade, and the great choice of local cafes, bars and restaurants.

Fabulous apartment in good location with all amenities close by
The property was beautiful and clean with all we could ask for available.
The roof terrace was a bonus and its location being within a stones throw of all the supermarkets, beaches and local towns.
We hired a car for our stay and were able to travel a bit further afield but this would not be required.
We visited the local beaches and some further away, we walked into the Spanish Old town and visited the local produce market on Tuesday morning.
There was a fair close by for evening entertainment and we even managed to see local evening entertainment - however the Spanish have a very laid back approach and most evening entertainment does not start until very, very late!!
The beaches were clean and the pools within the complex were suitably available throughout the day from 08.00 -22.00, which meant a pleasing cooling off swim at around 20.00 was nice.
This area of Spain has a typically Spanish feel to it - there is plenty of other appeal also.
Thoroughly enjoyed our time here, would recommend to friends and family.
Booking process with Steve was very easy, Deborah & Rob the property managers were also very helpful. The apartment itself was as advertised well equipped and very clean, the furniture/beds were all comfortable, the WIFI had a good signal as did the TV with lots of UK channels, the balcony and roof terrace were well equipped with tables, chairs & sun loungers. The apartment is a 6/8 mins. walk to a numerous amount of restaurants & bars the beach is a further 5 mins on were you can walk for miles. Overall an excellent stay, am returning in September
Lovely Apartment With Wonderful Views
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Steve's fantastic apartment. It is clean very well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. We ate in most of the time and conveniently there are 4 supermarkets within easy walking distance. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby too for eating out. The views from the sunny balcony and roof terrace are wonderful, looking on to the Mar Menor in the distance. The complex is very well maintained with 3 pools and lovely landscaping.
We are regular visitors to Los Alcazares and are sure we will return to this lovely apartment again.
Great apartment with everything you'll need.
We stayed for one week in this clean and well equipped apartment. There is a lovely sunny balcony where I ate breakfast every day. We used the roof terrace to watch the fireworks at the end of the local festival too.
The apartment has a well stocked kitchen and was spotless. Kids loved the WiFi. The complex is clean and pleasant with great pools. Sunbeds can be taken down from laundry room with ease. Local area and beach are perfect for a family holiday as everything is within walking distance.
Steve and Debbie were helpful throughout. We hope to book the same apartment again next year as it was perfect for us as a family of 4.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back soon!
Relaxing, enjoyable break.
Lovely well equipped apartment in great location.
The information pack provided by the owners was very useful even extending to restaurant recommendations.
Kids loved having WiFi and smart TV.
Would definitely stay again in this apartment.
Thanks for the review John. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back.
Lovely apartment complex, very clean and we
Very well equipped apartment, just a short walk from three supermarkets. No need for a car, restaurants a five minute walk away, with plenty of choice. Couldn't fault this apartment, transfer from airport by the property manager was good.
Many thanks for a lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay.
Special interest holidays:
Our apartment is ideal for cyclists, walkers, runners or triathletes looking for gentle year-round exercise or warm-weather training. We can recommend local cycle hire shops.
Within a 10-15 minute walk is an amazing stretch of beach with fine golden sand and the shallow, calm sea water of the Mar Menor lagoon. This is reputed to be up to 5C warmer than the Mediterranean Sea. It is safe for toddlers and its shallow depth means it is home to a wide range of water sports in the summer months.
The beach stretches for miles and is flanked by a 4-mile long beachfront promenade. There are small beach bars/cafes and children's playgrounds at regular intervals.
A 5-10 minute car/taxi journey from Murcia/San Javier airport or a 50-60 minute transfer from Alicante.
Everything is within a 15-minute walk on flat terrain so a car is not needed.
