We spent a wonderful week at this superbly appointed apartment. Its position on the Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort is just perfect. Just 15 minutes drive from Murcia Airport (but not on any flightpath so absolutely no aircraft noise) and 15-20 minutes drive from the many beach resorts. We were blown away by the breathtaking views from the large double-aspect veranda overlooking a huge pool (one of several) in one direction and a fairway with water feature in the other. The apartment is spacious, tastefully furnished and well equipped. We were unable to play golf due to my husband's knee injury but the course looked beautiful. The clubhouse, two minutes walk away, was well patronised with its own bar and terrace restaurant and also an Italian restaurant serving huge plates of delicious food in a charming tree-surrounded piazza. The resort SPAR shop sells all essentials including newspapers but for a bigger choice there is a huge supermarket en route from the airport which we, on advice from the couple who manage the property, shopped at on our way to the resort. The coastline is vast with many small resorts to visit. These have mainly man-made sandy beaches, all with their own beach bars/restaurants and sunbeds with parasols to hire. A wide, flat and paved promenade which runs the length of the coastline provides a haven for walkers, joggers and cyclists alike - keeping fit seems to be a priority in this area! Our favourite night-time haunt was Los Alcazares, again about 15-20 mins drive away, which has a pedestrianised area with almost every type of cuisine on offer. Altogether it was a really enjoyable and relaxing holiday which I can highly recommend whether you play golf or not.
