Villa La Poggia - Mar Menor
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our beautiful 3 bed/3 bathrooom villa is located in Mar Menor Village, Costa Calida's premier golf resort and spa. The village is situated 10 mins drive from Murcia San Javier airport which is served by a number of budget airlines from several UK airports and can also be reached in less than an hour from the area's main airport, Alicante.
Mar Menor resort provides the ideal location for either a short break or summer holiday being only 10 minutes drive from the warm therapeutic waters and miles of sandy beaches of the Mar Menor (a large lagoon formed between the main Mediterranean coastline and the La Manga peninsula) as well as a similar distance from the delightful coastal town of Los Alcazares with a large range of shops, bars, restaurants and supermarkets to suit all tastes. It is also only a short drive from the historic cities of Murcia and Cartegena which serve as delightful days out if the sun gets too much!
The villa itself is located close to the main entrance of Mar Menor and situated on the village's exclusive Plaza Suzan Klement, with it's delightful fountain surrounded by Pergolas and native palms, and is less than 5 mins stroll from the village centre with its well stocked Supermarket, fully equipped Golf Clubhouse and range of bars and high quality restaurants.
Arguably the best 3 bed, 3 bath house on the resort, the villa was tastefully extended 2 years ago to provide an airy spacious designer kitchen/dining area with all modern conveniences such as top quality oven, microwave, “island” hob, dishwasher and 2 large fridge/freezers. There is also a washing machine, which in keeping with Spanish tradition is situated outside the side door.
Downstairs too, there is a large comfortable air-conditioned lounge with sofa and chairs, new 42in LCD TV with full English Channel package, and Wii console with a range of games. Full WIFI has also been installed in the villa and there is a small laptop for guest use if required. A shower room, with corner shower unit, WC and wash basin is located at the bottom of the stairs.
A broad staircase leads to an upstairs landing with three bedrooms, one double (with ensuite bath and shower) and two twins, as well as a large third family bathroom. All bedrooms benefit from independent remote controlled air conditioning and lovely outlooks from the shuttered windows.
Outside there are extensive gardens and terraces which due to their orientation always give you the choice between constant sunshine or welcoming shade. The delightful larger than average pool (9m x 4m) provides welcome relief from the heat and can be screened off from the main terrace for the benefit of guests with younger children. There is a table and chairs for outside dining in addition to 6 matching sun loungers. In addition, there is a new gas BBQ on the downstairs terrace.
Upstairs, there is an additional sun terrace with further table/chairs and sun loungers. Perfect for milking the last of the sunshine and watching the sunset over a glass of Cava or Sangria.
If any member of the party is a golfer, there is a top quality set of Golf Clubs and accessories available which are free to use by any guest with an official club handicap. The onsite Jack Nicklaus designed course is superb and there are many others within a short drive.
* We do not currently ask for a damage deposit. We fully trust guests' integrity and honesty to either replace any breakages or leave an appropriate contribution towards their replacement

We are very disappointed with this review and it is so much at odds with the rest of the feedback we have received (Two 5* reviews and four repeat bookings from this season alone) that we will be disputing it via Trip Advisor. In the meantime to reassure anyone who's booked or is thinking of booking we'd like to respond to the reviewer's comments individually below:
"The villa is in need of modernisation, walls were very dirty, showers didn't work well and limited hot water. "
- The wall are not 'dirty', they do have marks and fingerprints from a long season of suitcases and the unfortunate problems with locally printed newspapers which leave ink on hands. As we do every year the villa will be repainted over Autumn/Winter. Admittedly one out of the 3 shower heads was clogged and affected the flow of water in that shower only. Hot water elsewhere was unaffected. As for "needing modernising" that's just plain nonsense - almost everything in the villa is modern and highly specified.
"Pool lights didn't work"
- They work perfectly and the guest handbook states clearly how to turn them on.
"no outdoor lights for sitting out at night, there was a sensor light that just kept flashing"
- We are having a permanent light fitted on the terrace but the sensor light works perfectly as it is.
"The living room doesn't have enough seating for a family to watch TV together."
- In addition to the 4 seats currently in the lounge there is a very good 2 seater settee in the dining area which could easily have been relocated. We remove it from the lounge in summer as we don't normally anticipate guests curling up in front of the TV in August.
"The kitchen cupboards inside were dirty and the cups placed face down in the dirty cupboard. "
- The cupboards are perfectly clean. There were some watermarks from guests putting away damp glasses but nothing remotely insanitary
"The brush for brushing up your own crumbs was falling apart."
- We've no idea. But this really takes the biscuit (!). There are 2 brushes, one for inside and one for outside. Both work perfectly.
"Its in a good location and has the potential to be a great villa with a bit of TLC."
- I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder and nothing is perfect for all the people all the time but you may notice that the review does not attempt to put the perceived negatives in the context of the many positives. We continue to act on constructive criticism where necessary and will continue to set even better standards going forwards.

"Excellent Villa is a great location."
A very fine Villa. It was excellently prepared and spotlessly clean. There is a very high level of equipment provided, as well as excellent wifi and air-conditioning.
The pool area is ideal for lounging in the sun, and the pool itself is particularly good, being larger than usual. A very useful gas barbeque is also provided and this saw a lot of use. I have rented villas for many years, but this is by far the best to date.
The resort itself is very pleasant with a fine choice of bars and restaurants. I look forward to another vist!
