The Murcia region
Costa Calida means 'warm coast ' and with the region having an average of 320 days of sunshine each year the mild climate is a major attraction. The city of Murcia, 30 minutes by car, is steeped in history and has many squares and narrow streets of shops and is an intriguing place to visit. It also has a more modern aspect in that it is home to a fantastic Harley Davidson dealership!
The Roman city of Cartagena is a magnificent port which hosts many fiestas and is also steeped in history. It has a lovely shopping centre and a new large retail park on the outskirts.
The Calblanque Nature Reserve is situated on the Mediterranean coast and has superb golden beaches. Cabo de Palos is on the southern tip of La Manga and is famous for its fishing harbour and fish restaurants. Scuba diving trips can be taken here.
Torrevieja is another attrractive city only twenty minutes away with lovely squares and a port which has recently been enlarged and modernised.
Los Alcazares (pronounced los- alkatha-rez), is situated on the western shore of the Mar Menor, a shallow salt-water lagoon separated from the Mediterranean by a 22km strip of land known as La Manga.
The Mar Menor is renowned for its health giving mineral-rich waters, which being warm and shallow are perfect for bathers and water sport enthusiasts. It has 7 km of wonderful palm-tree lined promenades with several blue flag sandy beaches and many tapas bars along the beach fronts giving it a real Spanish flavour. A ferry will take you on a half hour cruise across the Mar Menor to the La Manga strip.
The old town is typically Spanish, reflecting its previous existence as a fishing village, while the new Baliniero square, only five minutes walk from the apartment, has a modern supermarket, shops, hairdressers, a bicycle hire shop and many eating places.
There are 9 golf courses within a 15 minute drive and the new Roda Golf 18 hole course is only two minutes drive away over the motorway as is the new Municipal golf course. There are championship courses at La Manga, about 20 minutes drive away.
The area is very level making it ideal for walking and cycling. It is only 2km away from the motorway giving easy access to all the Murcia region, including La Manga, the Calblanque Nature reserve and the green hilly region around the city of Murcia.
Tuesdays and Saturdays are markets days in Los Alcazares where many bargains are to be found and fresh produce from the fertile local countryside.

This apartment was brilliant, the complex fantastic and the pool area gorgeous, we had a great two weeks and both the owner and her contacts on site were so helpful. You lacked for nothing in the apartment, from plenty of towels, crockery, glassware, washing machine, tumble dryer and even cleaning products, it was all provided. The location of this apartment is also ideal, very central and only a 5 min walk to the main strip, where you are totally spoiled for the choice of restaurants or bars, it really is a great place to stay.

"Lovely apartment and great location"
Lovely apartment, great location close to restaurants, beach and shops. the apartment supplied everything even down to beach towels which saves on luggage costs!, and beach and pool floats and chairs also supplied. Directions easy to follow from airport and Pam was there to meet us with keys and to show us around. The apartment had lots of information on what to do in the area if you have the energy, and the bus transport is good so there is no need for a car, I can recommend this apartment my kids ages are 9,12 and 14 and all could be entertained and there is a good choice of restaurants and not expensive, will be back again Thanks Pam

We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Pam's well equiped comfortable apartment. We found the apartment extremely clean and the cooling fans and air conditioning were very welcome on the extremely hot days/nights. We had a few problems with the air con but these were quickly put right by contacting the key holder Lesley who lives on site and can be texted with any problems, she's a very helpful lady. The balcony faces the back of the complex overlooking fields and is very peaceful. The extras like beach towels, deck chairs, parasol, safe box, huge TV & PS2 were much appreciated. The communal pool was great and really clean and supervised by a lifeguard -it's open from about 8am-10pm which the kids loved and the apartment was well positioned being about a 5-10 minute easy walk to the town centre restaurants, bars and supermarket and about 15 minutes to the lovely beach, miles long and very shallow, but, being a lagoon, no waves. All in all a great apartment and we had a lovely family holiday. We took the taxi boat to La Manga beach to play in the waves a couple of times, the Med is crystal clear and the beach there is gorgeous. It's 5 Euros pp each way though so not cheap and recommend you take your own umbrella as there is no shade.

"Great Apartment = Great Holiday!"
We have just returned from a lovely week staying at Pam's apartment. The apartment is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a self-catering holiday. It was clean and well furnished and provided a completely safe and comfortable environment for us and our young daughter (age 3). Apartment has air conditioning and huge TV with English channels (including CBeebies!) The whole complex is clean and maintained to a very high standard and the pool was a delight. Pam provided us with lots of useful and helpful information ahead of our stay. Albatros Residential is ideally siutated for bars, restaurants, supermarkets and beaches whether or not you hire a car. There is so much to see and do in this area that I think we barely scratched the surface The beach is absolutely stunning with its extensive promenade and shallow, warm waters. We enjoyed glorious sunny weather throughout our stay. We would happily recommend this apartment to anyone and very much look forward to returning again in the not too distant future!

"Great location and extremely well equipped"
Pam has made sure that every item needed for a very comfortable self-catering stay in Los Alcazares is provided, even down to a selection of quilt weights should you be staying out of the peak summer months. The quality of the kitchen equipment, bathroom towels and furnture is excellent. Beach towels are also provided. We visted out of peak season and so the English TV was great in the evenings and of course on Saturday afternoon to get the footy scores.
For those that know Los Alcazares this apartment is about a 5 minute level walk north of the Mercadona supermarket. The location is quiet and within a two minute walk is a good bar/pub called The Garden, which is ideal if you don't want to head to the main square. For those that don't know Los Alcazares, I really recommend you give it a try. The beach area is great and there are two distinct town areas; one with a selection of English speaking bars/restauarants and the a other traditional Spanish town. Both provide fantastic value for drinks and meals and with the numerous supermarket options it is easy to properly self-cater.
Buses run to Murcia and Cartegena if you want to do some sight-seeing and there's a ferry over to the La Manga strip in peak season. However, Los Alcazares is miles better than La Manga strip.
Pam's apartment is great choice for your stay in Los Alcazares.

"Lovely apartment, excellent location"
We had a lovely holiday thanks to Pam for letting us stay in her apartment. The apartment was lovely and clean and very well equipped. Excellent for the light traveller travelling by economy flight. The apartment has a beautiful view from the balcony, overlooking fields and mountains. A lovely way to spend and hour enjoying a glass of wine before going to dinner. There are many restaurants within walking distance from the apartment, very well located. It is also very near the beach (10 minutes walk). Also, supermarket is close by.
