The Hacienda Riquelm Golf Resort has been designed to create a lifestyle with a focus on freedom and nature, thanks to the incredible sensation of well-being which the surroundings provide. The well-laid out leafy avenues, the lush vegetation which blends in perfectly and the low density construction make this an ideal place to enjoy the exceptional Murcia climate.
The resort comes together around a late 19th Century, colonial-style country house, incorporating 18 holes of a Jack Nicklaus designed Championship Golf Course. There are children's plays areas and plenty of lush grass surrounding the pools, golf and apartments. Whether you want to play golf, relax on the sun terrace or lounge around in the golden sands of San Pedro beach, 15 minuets away by car, the Hecienda Riquelm Resort offers it all.
The Murcia region
Murcia is one of the regions with the most sunny days a year, an average annual temperature of 21º C, and 250 km of shoreline along two seas: the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean. It is noted for being a land of contrasts, with mountainous national parks, southern basins with steppe landscapes, and wonderful beaches such as those of La Manga, Mazarrón and Calblanque.
Murcia´s coastline is rich and diverse, areas of rough water contrasting with gentle coves and quiet beaches. Dunes, salt flats, wetlands... The coastline of Murcia Region contains a considerable number of areas of indisputable environmental interest, many of them Nature Reserves. Places where you can still find native flora and fauna such as the Phoenician juniper (Sabina mora), a native tree variety, and the "fartet" (Aphanius iberus), a minute and highly unusual fish, the only one of its kind.
The diversity of the landscape, the privileged climate and the cultural and historical richness make Murcia the perfect region to live in and enjoy the outdoors, practise water sports in the Mar Menor, explore its mountains, go hiking, rural tourism... and, of course, play golf.
The Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort area
This Resort is designed for the ultimate experience of freedom and nature, one that provides an incomparable feeling of well-being generated by the rational layout of its flanked avenues, its perfectly incorporated plant life, and its low construction density. It all comes together around a late 19th Century, colonial-style country house.
It was the home of the Riquelme Family, descendants of Guillén Riquelme, a noble knight who accompanied King Alfonso X the Learned on his conquest of Murcia. It has been restored to preserve the country house tradition of the Murcia of yore, and to maintain the balance between the romanticism of the past and the modernism of the future. The house has been recreated as it existed in those times, with gardens of the area´s native plants, which intertwine with the rays of sunlight that shine over this wonderful land of Murcia. The development project was carried out by EDSA and F&M Arquitectos, firms that leave their hallmark in each of the Resort´s details.
A bit of history...
Located on the estate that bears its name, this Resort is accessed by the Avileses to Sucina Road. It features a noble, late 19th Century colonial-style building, which was the retreat of the Riquelme family. The Riquelme´s were the descendants of Guillén Riquelme, a noble knight who accompanied King Alfonso X the Learned on his conquest of Murcia.
Affixed to the facade of this palace-house, his coat of arms displays the ornamental figures that identify and distinguish the noble family to which he belonged, and the other which he joined by marriage. The helm and crest of its minor shield over a field and a large barracks represent the distinguished warrior to whom they belonged.
A carriage roadway that ran through a beautiful palm grove provided access to the spacious central courtyard, which was lined with buildings devoted to the maintenance of the Riquelme Estate and services for its noble residents. Fountains of musical fresh waters, galleries of arches supported by open columns like those of a monastic cloister, a fortified tower of permeable walls, a beautiful palm grove, large windows from which to lean out and look at endless landscapes, are the elements that made this estate a place for rest and enjoyment.
The Riquelme family was noted for the patronage of the arts they practiced over many generations. One of the artists they patronized was the famous Murcian sculptor Francisco Salzillo. The museum in Murcia that bears his name is home to many of his works of art, such as the world famous nativity scene commissioned by Jesualdo Riquelme y Fontes for his Murcia Palace. Another patronized artist circa 1603 was sculptor Cristóbal de Salazar, who created the marble sepulchres for the great Riquelme chapel in the San Francisco de Murcia Convent.

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment and the setting is as lovely as we remembered - it has terraces/balconies at the front and rear, so you have some sun and shade all day. The apartment overlooks a huge pool that we never shared with more than a couple of other people.
Our dealings with the owner on both occasions have been faultless. Jamie has always responded to any enquiries in a timely manner and has been very prompt returning our security deposit.
Overall the accommodation is excellent value for money and we would definitely stay here again.
