Fully air conditioned 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom townhouse on La Torre Golf Resort
- english, spanish
Why Mike Frisbee chose Roldán
For us, La Torre is our second home, somewhere we visit as often as our time (and finances!) allows. We love the fact that it's in a quiet location, yet within easy reach of so many typically-Spanish towns. There's nothing to beat a barbecue and drinks on the upstairs terrace, overlooking the golf course on a warm summer's evening. For the cooler nights, we have the glass curtains on the downstair terrace.

The perfect holiday house
From the moment we arrived at this house our expectations were surpassed. This is the cleanest place we've ever stayed, completely spotless and well maintained. The house is right on the golf course and the first floor balcony offers great views and is spacious for everyone to relax. The owner and key holder were very helpful, and the information left for us was very useful and considerate, especially the groceries stocked for our arrival. The resort itself is lovely with pools within walking distance and more places to eat in the town of roldan.
You could not wish for a better property to stay, there is everything you need and more. Two bathrooms are a bonus.
The complex is extremely quite not all restaurants were open and the ones that were, were very busy. The pool area has no sun beds you have to take your own. The supermarket has everything you may want or need. All in all if you are looking for a golf getaway (our husbands really enjoyed the course) or a relaxing escape this is the place to go. Thanks Mike.
Thanks for this.
The main holiday season at La Torre starts on 1st July and runs through to the end of August. Much more goes on in those two months, including the popular Friday markets, with food, drink and music.
I always recommend hiring a car - even in summer - to make the most of the local area, with beaches, Murcia city and Cartagena around a 20-25 minute drive away.
Top quality accommodation.
The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout and facilities.
The property was clean, well equipped and it was well-maintained.
The Customer Service and communication with the owner was first class.
I have already recommended the property to friends and relatives and will definitely go back and preferably soon.
The golf course outside the property was in good order, the restaurant on site was top notch and the supermarket had a good choice of wine.
Great property with every home from home amenity.
The property was great and with all amenities that you expect. It really was a home from home.
The resort however is very quiet. In fact it's a ghost town in early June. The intercontinental hotel in the development centre closed down several years ago and the associated restaurants around it have also closed. The golf club house is tired and staff totally disinterested in customers. Tables not cleared, floors dirty and generally poor all round.
With a lack of facilities on site, it is 20 mins at least on the motorway to nearby restaurants and you soon get fed up with the constant driving.
Unfortunately La Torre is still seasonal, with many of the bars and restaurants only open in July and August. We stayed at the resort in the middle of June and whilst the venues that were open were very busy, it was disappointing that the tapas bar, the rice restaurant and others were still closed.
I don't agree that the staff are totally disinterested in customers and I've not noticed that it is particularly any different from other areas of Spain. We've always had good service on La Torre, although we do tip and always order in Spanish. (Imagine if a German person came to London, one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world, and ordered in German all night; what sort of service would he receive?)
There's a number of bars and restaurants in nearby Roldan, 2.5km away. These are already in the sat nav at the house and listed in the restaurant guide, which can be downloaded from our website, details of which I give to all guests once their booking is confirmed. Some of them offer courtesy lifts.
The good news is that Polaris World, the resort developers, sold the hotel, bars and restaurants in December last year. We were hoping the changes would come into effect by this summer at the latest, but Spain being Spain, it will be next year now, with the opening of the hotel planned for February 2017 - a full 15 months after being sold! The new owners run a successful resort further down the coast, so we are very optimistic that they can turn things round. I'll make sure your feedback is passed to the new owners so that they are fully aware of the areas they need to work on.
