Some restaurants/bars enable you to sit and enjoy a drink or meal overlooking the beautifully landscaped golf course or the lake. There is also a bank and cash machine located in the town centre, plus hair & beauty salon and taxi rank. During the summer months, fiestas and events are organised and although some of the facilities are withdrawn during the winter months the quietness of the resort has its own appeal!

Bicycles are available for hire from the supermarket on a daily or weekly basis for both children and adults.

The Murcia region
Being in the southern region of Spain, Murcia offers one of the most pleasant climates in Europe, with mild winters, hot (but not oppressive) summers and an average of 320 sunny days a year. The average hours of sunshine per day range from around 6 hours in winter to a full 12 hours at the height of summer. Inland from the Mar Menor, the area is a prime growing region, with much of its fruit, vegetables and salads heading for the UK!
Rain on the Costa Calida is rare, especially in the summer months - the total annual rainfall averages 5 to 6 cm (2 to 2 1/2 inches) on the coastal plain, although the inland mountainous areas are slightly wetter.
Very much less developed than other regions in Spain, villages hold local fiestas, and the cities of Murcia and Cartegena offer something for everyone with modern facilities and historic areas living cheek by jowl.
The Mar Menor, just 20 minutes from La Torre, has a wide range of water activities, plus easily accessible beaches, which never seem to get too crowded, even in high season.
La Torre Golf Resort
La Torre is built around a 18 hole golf course and is beautifully landscaped with wide boulevards and gardens, and plenty of car-parking spaces by the apartment.
La Torre is a very large resort, so many of its apartments are quite some way from the resort centre & clubhouse, but our spacious apartment is just a few minutes from the centre, the clubhouse, the driving range, the supermarket and the hotel, and overlooks 2 swimming pools, a toddler pool and children's play area - you never need to get in your car!
The large, airy apartment and balcony overlook the pool complex, and the adjacent terrace is dual aspect with views of the pools and also the driving range and golf course.
Just a few minutes walk from the apartment is a large supermarket, offering a home delivery service, which stocks local produce as well as many brands familiar to those from the UK. In the same precinct as the supermarket there is also a newsagent and gift shop, which offers both adult and child bikes for hire.
Adjacent to the lake, and just a stone's throw from the apartment, a resort centre has been built with restaurants, cafes and bars. July and August offers holidaymakers extra entertainment, a children's club, and a bus from the Resort to the beach bar. There is also an impressive 5* hotel on the site, with spa, a conference centre and a large golf clubhouse. The resort centre also has a bank, medical care, hairdressing & beauty salon, and taxi rank.
La Torre is located 20 minutes from the Mar Menor and its amazing beaches and water-sports, and centrally between the cities of Murcia and Cartegena (20 minutes). It is also only 30 minutes from the Sierra Espuna National Park. Murcia is a region rich in history, and it is well worth checking out the Murcia Tourist Board website to discover just how many festivals and events are on offer throughout the year.
As well as if the challenge of the Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole course, staying at La Torre also gives you the opportunity to play at other Polaris World golf courses in the region, with a free bus operating throughout the day. Tee times can be booked from the free telephone in the apartment. You can even hire manual trolleys, electric trolleys or electric buggies.
The golf course offers a natural grass driving range with 20 bays, putting and chipping green and a practice bunker, and golf lessons are available. Staying at our apartment also enables you to take advantage of special owner rates, which represent a considerable saving on normal prices - details and forms to present to the Clubhouse are available in the apartment.
The Mar Menor is the largest lagoon in Europe and has a surface area of 130 sq km and a maximum depth of 8 metres. The crystal clear waters are warm, calm and rich in salts and minerals, in fact the temperature never falls below 18degrees. In certain areas of the Mar Menor the therapeutic clays can be found, these are a favourite with the Spanish tourists, who cover themselves with the clay and then bake in the hot sun. It is said to be good for skin complaints, rheumatism and arthritis etc.
The range of activities on the Mar Menor is enough keep the whole family engaged for weeks:
Beach ... Cycle Hire ... Restaurants ... Quad Bikes ... Go Karts ... Shops ... Sailing ... Supermarkets ... Jet Skis ... Beach Bars ... Casino ... Scuba Diving ... Golf ... Boat trips ... Therapeutic Sands ... Kite Surfing ... Windsurfing ...Walking ... Marina ... Fishing ... Boat Hire ... Car Hire.

"1st class all the way!"
We were looking to book last minute and could not have landed any luckier! Professional and friendly service from both owners and local agents. The pictures do not do it justice and the location could not be better. I have rented many private apartments in Spain and this one truly has the WOW factor.

"A very comfortable and relaxing week"
We had a very relaxing week and it was nice to be able to sit outside on the terrace for a bit of warm winter sunshine.
We did not leave the resort all week and found plenty of places to eat and a well stocked and inexpensive supermarket all within a five minutes walk from the apartment.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, fully equipped and furnished to a very high standard.
For someone wishing to explore the region a hire car would be essential but as we were there just to read and "chill out" we arranged to be met and returned to the local airport.
I would unhesitatingly recommend this apartment to friends and family.
We enjoyed it so much that we have booked the owners other apartment at La Manga during October.

"If Carlsberg done Penthouses in La Torre......!"
Booked Ann's penthouse for 4 weeks in July and was not disappointed. Argueably the best location in La Torre - close to all amenities such as supermarket, clubhouse, town centre (restaurants and bars) and 2 well kept pools. Ann's pre holiday correspondence was both informative and well timetabled. The apartment itself was in very good order. It contained everything that you would expect and indeed needed to enjoy a home from home holiday. Beds were very comfortable and all linen was in good order. The extra patio space was useful for drying any laundry. The importance of air conditioning units in the living room and each of the 2 bedrooms should not be undervalued. The free wifi a must in this day and age!
All in all an extremely good choice of apartment and would recommend.

"Excellent location for golf; only a short drive to the sea."
Very easy to book and organise. The airport was only 25min drive from the apartment and the reception was excellent - with the caretaker meeting us and taking us through all the arrangements, local amenities, etc.
The apartment was very comfortable and I particularly like the verandas which wrapped around 2 sides giving access to sun, or shade, all day. The 2 bedrooms had space for 4 people, the lounge spacious and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, etc.
We went outside school holidays and the resort was peaceful - ideal for us.
There is a local hotel with a gym which you can pay for, but not worth it - it has no outside windows and felt confined.
Local supermarket has most of what you need and more extensive shopping is only 20min away.
Overall, a great stay - we'll be going back.

The penthouse is situated in an ideal location, close to the main square and supermarket. It over looks two very well kept pools, that our kids were still using at 10pm in the evening. It has the lux of Full Air Con and is well equipped. The owners were really helpful and made my booking really easy.
We would certainly recommend the apartment and consider going back, unfortunately the Tapas bar in the square was closed and there was no kids entertainment like our last visit.
The weather was 33c daily with almost constant sunshine, La torre has a constant breeze that takes the edge off that heat and makes it nice.
If there was anything that I would add to the apartment! it would be a BBQ, but otherwise a great break with very helpful caretakers on site.

"All in all a very pleasant stay - Would recommend and go again."
The apartment is in La Torre golf resort and located very conveniently on the resort within a few minutes walking distance to the bars, restaurants and supermarket and literally 2 minutes to the pool. There were 2 large pools which due to the time we went were very quiet and a lot of times we had it to ourselves which was brilliant.
Apartment is on the top floor with a balcony facing the pools and terrace with table and chairs and sun loungers. There is storage on the terrace which was handy for storing our suitcases.
living dining area very reasonable size with leather sofas and dining table/chairs. Very clean and nice. Kitchen was good with all appliances (dishwasher, fridge/freezer, kettle, mwave..etc) with many plates and cutlery, knives... However, I think maybe a larger pan and a roasting dish could be useful as for four of us we had to cook food in 2 pans.
Bedrooms very nice and clean with build in wardrobe and plenty space/hangers with very comfortable beds and pillows. Each room had a air con which was a big bonus although we did not have it on most of the time, it was nice thing to have.
The only little criticism would have to be the bathroom. There was no fan extractor and also got too hot if the air con was not in the living room with the bathroom door open! As we were 4 adults in the apartment, found it quite hard with no air circulation in the bathroom! other than that nice and clean with shower over bath.
Owners are very flexible and helpful. The couple who met and greeted us were also nice and helpful. We had to pay €60 for cleaning and meet/greet on top of the rent which was reasonable.
Overall a very good experience and would definitely go back and recommend it to everyone.
Thank you for your comments. An extractor fan has now been fitted in the bathroom, and it does make a difference! We have also added a large lidded pan and a roasting dish to cater for "bigger" meals. We hope to see you again.
