"Book another apartment."
Well used grubby, shabby apartment. Photos shown do not reflect the current condition. Stayed in August and on arrival Air Conditioning didn't work; contacted owner who said he'd get it rep… More
Unfortunately the Air Con broke down and could not be repaired whilst she was there. Gave her a refund. Never told me her husband was so ill and as such is a bitter client and has made some false comments about the apartment which is the only bad comments we have had in 6 years.

"Nice apartment stones throw from the beach"
Our family (2 adults plus a 3 year old and a baby) stayed in this apartment in September / October 2012. Would we stay here again - YES. If you want to know more read on.
This was the first time we'd booked an apartment as opposed to a hotel, and we were quite worried about the booking process. In particular that you have to transfer cash and that there were no reviews on the site (hopefully this will solve that problem) although it has been advertised for 5 years. Our doubts were eased by the owner who we spoke to both by telephone and email and who was very helpful and polite. We had no problems booking or getting our deposit back.
The apartment is only 25 minutes from San Javier (Murcia) airport along a main road, so ideal after a long flight. We arrived late and checked out late, again the owner was most accommodating. We picked the keys up and dropped them off at the bar on the end of the road, very simple really.
I would advise to arrive by car, as we did, with underground parking provided (secured by key). There is a lift up to the apartment, also secured by key. The apartment itself is on the sixth floor and has a living room (with tv / dvd which we never used), kitchen with all that you need, bathroom with bath and shower, a double bedroom and another bedroom with 2 single beds. The owner provided us a cot free of charge. I believe there is air con in the living room and double bedroom, but we never tried this. There is also a nice balcony with views of the pool and lagoon. There is another outdoor space to the rear through the kitchen which is ideal for drying washing. Of particular benefit was the free wifi (the owner supplied the key), the strength isn't great (our phones would only really pick it up on the balcony or bedroom, the tablet was a bit better with the laptop connecting anywhere) and the speed isn't brilliant either (0.5Mbps), but more than enough to plan your daily excursions, read the news, post some photos and even Skype. Lastly there is a sun terrace on the roof which we didn't really use except to look at the view (and the stars).
In terms of location, there is both an outdoor and indoor pool in the complex, and a gym and sauna. You need a swim cap for the indoor pool. We stayed at the end of September and the weather was still really hot (mid 30s during the day and 20s at night), but never really used the outdoor pool (it seemed a bit cold), preferring instead to use the indoor pool or swim in the sea, which is literally across the road (1 minute walk). There are a couple of British bars at the end of the road selling a British menu for a good price. The local shop is also located here and has all you'll need. Don't worry about noise, the complex is very quite at night, ideal after a long day sight seeing.
We stayed for 9 days and enjoyed trips to Cartagena - a lovely town 25 minutes away along the main road with Fort, old Roman theatre and port, Murcia - another nice town just under an hour away, Torrevieja - another nice town which has Flamenco dancing some nights (look up Patio Andaluz), La Union - mining town 20 minutes away with tours of the mine, Cabo de Palos 5 minutes away with nice lighthouse, tourist information and market, and lastly the national park 5 minutes away for walking and picnics. We had a throughly great time and the apartment was an ideal base for these trips. I must say if you do go at the end of September check out the weekly Roman festival in Cartagena, it was the highlight of our week - unmissable!
I've rated as 4/5, mainly because the apartment doesn't take your breath away when you enter. That said it is really very good, and in particular excellent value for money, I wouldn't hesitate to book again or recommend to a friend.
