We stayed at the apartment for a couple of weeks in August 2013. Having never booked an apartment in this way before we were initially hesitant at parting with our money to someone we had never met but had no need to worry. Natasha was great - even adding us to Facebook, so lots of contact.
On arrival the apartment was very clean. It is very well equipped and comfortable - a home from home with comfortable beds and furniture and a well equipped kitchen. It is situated at the back of the complex at the highest point with great views over the sea and away from any potential sources of noise (the pool). Watching the sunrise over the sea from the balcony is a great memory. There are a couple of pools on the site which were not crowded and very well maintained. Unfortunately the indoor pool/complex was out of action for our stay and looked like it had been over the summer.
We particularly liked the fact that the complex and the area is very popular with the Spanish as a holiday location. It was therefore very quiet with a real family feel. No loud bars (no bar on the complex, if that is your thing - it isn't ours!) or stag parties just a really relaxed atmosphere everywhere. We also found eating/drinking out to be reasonably priced.
The complex doesn't have a shop. A car is a must in our view. The apartment has its own car parking space. There is a regular bus service but the beach is a good walk as are the shops. We flew to Murcia and the apartment was easy to reach. Although the area is developed for tourism, as said, it is very popular with the Spanish and 'real' Spain is only a very short distance away. We had some fantastic days/trips out into the hills/local area exploring. The beaches 15 minutes away near Mojacar were the best (we thought) and Mojacar is a wonderful place for an evening browsing the shops and enjoying a meal from the square at the top of the hill.
The apartment would be ideal as a base for anyone interested in cycling (road or mountain) or walking and we would definitely consider returning/recommending.
Natasha - thank you!
