“Villa 1... la manga club gorgeous but the location lets it down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Positives
Villa 1 is a stunning detached villa with quality furnishings, large open plan living room, fabulous terrace looking over the golf course and coastline, and perfect pool.
Probably the smartest accommodation we have stayed in on la manga and we are fans of the club in general as it offers a safe, clean environment for a peaceful or active family holiday. the club is looking great this year and has obviously had some TLC and there are some new restaurants etc
BUT
Negatives
The location of the villa.
It is just outside the barrier for Las Lomas and about a 15 minute easy walk into the centre of La Manga club.Whilst one aspect of the villa looks over the golf course the other aspect is looking over a scruffy builders yard, a couple of very run down properties and scrubland. Unfortunately there are dogs in these properties that bark day and night and cause a disturbance constantly. We reported it and the property management company and security are aware there is a problem with dogs ( The secondary double glazing should have given us a clue!!) The advice was to phone security if we were disturbed but that wasn't very practical given they barked off and on day and night. In the end we spent two weeks sleeping with both sets of double glazing closed, the air conditioning on and ear plugs.....
The Villa also is very close to the main road into La Manga and there is a constant traffic noise which if you aren't used to will be annoying.... Not a peaceful holiday.
If you want a peaceful holiday I would suggest looking at other properties on the site - Las Brisas for example or an individual villa on the main La Manga site, more expensive but no barking dogs.

Hi just recently came back from staying at a private villa on the la manga club complex www.whooshda.co.uk have a look what a fantastic villa very private and the garden was beautiful as well as being one of the biggest on the complex The villa was beautifully furnished as well as having its own private pool wifi and parking area. Shops, bars and restaurants all within walking distance just beautiful as well as the added bonus of staying at an owners villa reduced golf and tennis rates would definately recommend great holiday

We have just returned from a last minute Easter holiday to La Manga. We didn't make full use of all the sporting facilities, which could have been a bit pricey if we'd used them every day, but did play golf and tennis as well as playing a very expensive round of crazy golf. We stayed in #5 Hacienda Del Golf, which as a community of villas and apartments is ideally placed for both the tennis centre and the par 47 pitch and putt course as well as being in easy walking distance of several bars, restaurants and the supermarket. All the villas in this community are situated around a pool. We booked direct with the owner and were disappointed to find that despite the pool being listed as heated, ( a major factor for booking this particular property)it wasn't. The owner was very kind though and gave us back some money when I pointed this out to her, but a heated pool in April is essential with children as the water was far too cold. In the height of summer this wouldn't be a problem of course. The house was ideally situated opposite the pool which meant that if the children were in the water you would be able to see them from the patio and the gardens were well maintained and very pretty.

I have nothing but praise for this resort, our party was 8 golfers , we arrived 1 hour early but they worked very quickly to have our rooms, cleaned and ready for us early, The resort is huge, there are appartments everywhere spread out over the hills, its hard to explain how large the resort is, one of the benifits was evertime we wanted to go anywhere withinthe resort we just asked reception for a minbus for all 8 of us it it was there in 5 mins to take us,
we booked 3 rounds of golf, firstly on the south then the north and then the championship west course, we had 8 golfers with mixed hadicaps, the only problem was w ehad buggys but the buggys were not allowed on the course only the path so if you played the wrong side of the path you had to take soem clubs to decide what to play with, it seemed i played the wrong side all day, i enjoyed every course the greens and the the whole days play eachday was amazing..
everymorning we had breakfast in the deli bar, and then straight into the spar which had a pool which everyone had to wear swim caps as its spainsh law for indoor pools, 8 golfers with swim hats very funny !!!then we had the choice of sauna and steam room and anything else you had to pay for, Then in the evening many resturants to choice from like chinesse , Italian, Indian , or si resturant which was ok , the its onto the bars, as it was half term week we expected it to be a tad busy but it was Dead quiet the only bar to be in was Mulligans the staff were all excellent they made us feel very welcome everynight everynight they had different karoki Hosts and Bono was the man we all sang everynight, wehich was very very funny overall i / we had an excellent golf break with a choice of spar + resturants + pools + bars + great golf bring on 2013

Room Tip: take your own swin hat

Great location, nice apartment.

After a long trip on the bike it felt good to go to the beach(100 meters)

Cheap restaurants with good food near the hotel.

Wake up early and feel the tranquility of the beach.

This property is marketed as a higher end two bedroom property - the photos maximise its appeal.

We have stayed at la manga a total of 4 times - this property is reasonable but not as good as it is marketed.

Our bedroom air con failed over a 4 day period in peak summer - caused a lot of inconvenience and ruined some shoes. Also the chairs in the dining room (modern but uncomfortable) collapsed 3 times - we were really lucky not to have been injured as a granite work top narrowly missed my skull and the fall to the floor on hard tiles (I am normal weight by the way).

There is also several damp mildew patches in 2nd bedroom plus the shower door is covered in mildew.

The beds are flimsy metal frames and we all (family of 4) slept poorly throughout holiday.

I have tried to contact the owner several times but am awaiting to hear back.

In summary you can do a lot worse but also a lot better. Use with caution.

Just returned back from another great holiday at La Manga Club. This was our 5th stay and have rented various villas from differing companies - the latest was through Design Holidays. Super service, good price but more important was they sold the villa to us exactly as it was i.e they did not oversell it to us ..... and we loved it as it way exceeded our expectations ! South Course villa with pool on the 6th Fairway I think (can't remember number sorry 165-2 maybe ).
With every review there should be a balance and would have to say that for families (summer) or golfers (winter) La Manga Club is a great holiday, however the lack of fine dining will always stop it from becoming an ultimate 5 star experience i.e return for couples etc out of season...

Room Tip: Design Holidays offered us good honest advice, we would use them again 100%
