The Murcia region
Los Alcazares is a working Spanish town with all the facilities you will need, like banks, shops, restaurants etc.
It´s main attraction is the beach which extends for 5kms and has a palm lined promenade all along it´s length, the water is clear and blue flag status has been achieved.
The sea is very safe from a childs point of view as it is non tidal and fairly shallow and gently deepens as you leave the shore. Los alcazares now boasts 2 golf courses, Roda Golf & Beach resort which is a 3 minute drive from the apartment and La Serena Golf which is at the other end of town. It is now possible to have a golf and beach holiday here without driving, as taxis can take you to the courses.
Los Alcazares is well connected to the rest of Spain by way of motorway and major roads and to the outside world by 2 nearby international airports, San Javier and Alicante.
Los Alcazares (pronounced los-alcatha-res) is situated in the Murcia region of south-eastern Spain, also known as the Costa Calida. The town sits on the western shore of the Mar Menor, a saltwater lagoon separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a 22 kilometre long strip of land called La Manga. The area enjoys an average of 320 days of sunshine each year. Bars, cafes and restaurants provide drinks, tapas, meals and entertainment, and the warm water of the Mar Menor helps make the town a paradise for bathers and watersports enthusiasts. The mineral-rich water of the Mar Menor is revered for its health-giving properties and the town still has thermal baths which have existed since Roman times.
The fertile countryside (la huerta) inland supplies the local markets with fresh produce which is also exported to northern Europe, especially during the winter when local farmers take advantage of the comparatively warm weather. Throughout the year, the area offers boundless opportunities for sports and other activities. Golfers will be delighted that no less than seven golf courses can be found within a short drive from the town.
The town was afforded municipal autonomy on 13 October 1983. In celebration of this, each October the town puts on a week-long outdoor party featuring live music, shows and spectacular firework displays. Since 2000 the last three days in March has seen Los Alcazares take on a medieval flavour with a large medieval market and numerous events in recollection of the times of peace following the creation of effective defences against invasions of Barbary pirates during the 15th century. Throughout the last two weeks in August, the town hosts the international celebration of La Huerta when groups representing market garden areas throughout Spain and other European countries gather to display their folklore, handicrafts and prepare gastronomic feasts from their local produce.
The town is well connected to the recently upgraded Spanish motorway network and there are regular flights from and to many European cities to Murcia/San Javier International Airport which is only five minutes drive away. Alicante airport offers even more flights, and is just an hour away. 30 km to the northwest can be found the historic city of Murcia, the regions administrative centre. 15 km to the southwest lies Cartagena, a delightful Roman port city which has recently been revitalized.
El Divino is a community of about 200 properties which has many year round residents as well as holidaymakers, for this reason it is impecably maintained and reasonably quiet, it is suitable for families and couples but not "lads" or "girls" holidays as there is no "nightlife" as in "clubs" etc nearby, there are however many good restaurants and bars closeby, some of the better ones are La Encarnacion, Ramon, El Patio IV, these are all traditionally Spanish/International and there are many others specialising in cuisine from all over the world.
The complex has 2 large community pools and these are surrounded by well maintained communal gardens.
We have changed the method of payment for the air conditioning facility (available throughout) it is now operated by a coin mechanism and 1 Euro will get you 1 hour of air conditioning (hot and cold), we hope that you will find this method of payment easier and good value. Ceiling fans are also available in both bedrooms.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE EL DIVINO COMPLEX IS ALSO A RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY AND FOR THIS REASON CERTAIN COMMUNITY RULES APPLY.
Nearby you have central square, within 5 mins walk of the apartment which has supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants, banks, internet access. This area has, over the last number of years, become almost a new town centre and there are new business´s opening here on a regular basis.
The beach is within 7/8 mins walk and you do not need a car if this type of holiday appeals to you.
Within a short drive you have the beautiful historic city of Cartagena which has many Roman ruins, it also has a recently restored port area, also here can be found El Cortes Ingles which is an exclusive department store. Cartagena is a fantastic city which has undergone much regeneration in the last few years. Much of the city has been pedestrianised and the Semana Santa (Easter) celebrations are nationally recognised. Also of interest here are the Roman and Cartagenians Festival which takes place in September. A little further north on the shores of the Mar menor is found Las Salinas de San Pedro where for generations people have caked themselves in the therapuetic mud and then relaxed in the warm seas of the Mar Menor. The mud is said to have many healing properties and is easily found and totally free.
Within a 2 hour drive is the Holy City of Caravaca de la Cruz which is definately worth a visit also within this sort of distance is the shrine of the Virgen in Calasparra which is a fantastic place built into the natural stone, I would however recommend a visit to the local tourist office as they can provide you with a wealth of information about what the area has to offer.
There are 2 waterparks and a safari park within driving distance in Rojales, Torrevieja and Elche. Recently TerraNatura has opened close to Murcia, this is unique in that it has a water park with a safari park next door.

"Very well appointed and comfortable apartment in a great location"
Our first stay in this apartment and Sean couldn't have been more helpful and obliging. We like to visit Los Alcazares twice a year and we'll certainly be checking availability with Sean for… More
delighted that you enjoyed your stay, lovely to have met 2 people with a positive outlook on life and look forward to welcoming you both back in the near future.
