El Valle golf resort update 2018

Hi

We have found a villa to rent on this complex for August 2019.

I am on the verge of booking it and found two seperate threads on the forum, the first in 2009 and the second in 2012 with the last post in 2014. Mostly good reviews, but some critical.

Has anyone been recently who can provide up to date information regarding the quality of the resort ( not the golf course please!) the club house, any bars, supermarket and upkeep of the grounds.

There's more up-to-date info on the Costa Cálida forum if you haven't already looked there...

We booked last year and were given a different villa name to the one we reserved, but absolutely no complaints and we have booked again for next week.

Our villa was well equipped, clean and the pool cleaned twice during the week. We had 3 days in, just using the pool and 3 days out.

The on site shop is ok with enough to keep you going but we stocked up at a supermarket just up the road from San Javier on the way out anyway. The restaurant/bar is again ok for a couple of nights but we went to relax so weren't looking for night life.

Thanks for your post. What did you think of the complex? We’re not golfers. Is it the sort of place to have a stroll around in the evening? Was there much noise? What was the food like at the restaurant?

TIA

Hi. Saw this forum whilst putting review on internet for the clubhouse restaurant at El Valle. We are coincidentally staying in villa Casa Solana at the moment & it is a lovely villa. It's about a 20ish mind walk to the clubhouse & spar shop. The Irish Bar appears to be closed indefinitely. It is a quiet resort & you will need a car to explore the surrounding areas. I would not recommend the restaurant (Sandalo) in the clubhouse - we visited last night & I have never been anywhere like it. When our food was waiting to be brought to our table other people were taking food off our plates to eat it themselves. If this wasn't bad enough, when we mentioned this to the staff, a man who I can only assume was the manager spoke in Spanish to the waitress. The word 'adios' was certainly mentioned with lots of arm waving. The waitress handed us the bill for our drinks & said that they didn't know when or if they'd be able to re-cook our order. The manager clearly wanted us to leave. I expect better standards of hygiene & customer service than this & it was clear that those drunk people taking our food spent alot of time & money there so were treated very well by the staff. It has definitely put us off buying a property here as I would hate anyone else to receive the service we did. However, the villa is very nice & has everything you should require.

Hi

We have stayed in various apartments in El valle (we are going again next week in a villa)

It really depends on the type of holiday you want. The resort is very peaceful and safe, you can stroll around the resort but there is not much to see but accommodations and the golf course. We love the fact that it is quiet and can just relax and recharge our batteries.

The complex is clean and well maintained, the on site shop is small but well stocked and reasonably priced. We have eaten at the restaurant many times and never had bad food....sometimes the service is slow if they are busy but the prices are fair.

Car hire is a must and there are lots of nice restaurants nearby, with a larger selection in Los Alcázares and Murcia both about 20 mins drive away

We have been about 6 times so if you want to ask any questions feel free

Wow, that’s appalling! Thanks for the heads up. We do a lot of cooking ourselves but thought it would be useful to have somewhere near that we could eat at.

Did you find any restaurants nearby that you could recommend?

What a coincidence that you were in the same villa that we will be staying in! It looks lovely but it’s always good to have it reinforced.

TIA for your reply.
