"Back for more golf. Location, facilities and weather perfect!"
The apartment is small but tidy and fine for our golf trip. The roof terrace is a great option for a BBQ or sun bathing. WIFI is also a bonus as I can't deal with being offline for a whole weekend!
Love the location of this apartment, good access to the pool and local bar which shows sport and servers good food all day. Also only a short walk into the resort town centre. Speaking of which, coming back in June this time the town centre had a real buzz about it, with more restaurants to choose from than on previous visits.
The Alhama golf course - great to play, still a real challenge!

The apt is very clean and well equipped. Caroline Baker was great with any info and directions she gave us. Single beds in bedrooms so slightly annoying for a couple I felt even though we joined the… More

"Great golf location"
A few mates and I tend to go out to Spain each year for a long golf weekend. We've been to this apartment a couple of times. It's clean, comfortable and well located for the 20 or so golf courses in the area.

Thanks for a great stay. I went with my girlfriend and our 7 month year old boy and would recommend this to anyone with a young family. Fantastic climate, would have loved to check out the golf!
The apartment is clean and well kept, the local area has great beaches and old Spanish towns to explore.
Check out Murcia and Cartegena, great old towns. Check out the great local Tapas bars!
A car is a must to get around to see the local area!

"Nice resort, great location and great golf"
Myself and three friends have recently returned from our annual golf trip and third stay at the Condado Golf resort. The resort itself is sprawling, modern and well maintained. More important is the number of high quality golf courses within a short drive, including the Alhama Signature course at Condado which has become our regular first round on the day of arrival. It's only one hour fifteen away from Alicante airport.
The apartment itself is small and modern with plenty of parking everywhere. We were 4 guys plus kit and it was fine for the weekend. The roof terrace is great for sunbathing or some early evening beers/bbq. There is a nice 'town centre' with a few bars and restaurants, and a shop of course. Just outside the apartment is a pool and play area, and a really nice bonus is the bar just 30 yards away where they serve beer, decent food and show sky sports. Perfect when you are knackered after 36 holes in a day. We would normally eat there at least once in a weekend. I am told that there are also really nice beaches a short drive away, but we've never had the time to find them.
The only downside perhaps is that you do need a car both to get out and about in the region and also to explore the boundaries of the resort. This was no problem to us though we we hired from the airport. Just one piece of advice. When you are waiting for your bags on arrival at the airport, send someone out to get to the front of the hire car queue.

"Great Rental Find!"
We stayed in the apartment in August. From the inital enquiry right through to returning home, the owner of the apartment made everything so quick and easy. The apartment itself is clean, bright and pefect for a family with young children. There was eveything we could need for our 1 year old daughter highchair, travel cot, toys and even a water ring for the pool. The terrace is perfect for catching the rays and the pool is less than a minutes walk away. The situation of the apartement is right next to the tennis courts and only a couple minutes drive from the town center.

"Have been twice, and will be going back."
Have just returned from our second visit, with my wife and son (aged 2). It is a great place to stay with young children, the areas in front of the apartment are pedestrianised and quiet, and the pool safely fenced off at the end of the jardin. There is also use of some toys and beach stuff for children.
The apartment has been decorated well, with a modern feel, better than most others I have stayed at before, with comfortable beds and sofa. The kitchen has everything you could need to cook meals and a washing machine.
