The Murcia region
The autonomous region of Murcia lies in the southeast of the Spanish mainland. It borders Castile-La Mancha in the north, the region of Valencia in the east, the Mediterranean Sea in the south, and Andalusia in the west.
The coastline of Murcia is characterised by its sandy beaches. The most beautiful natural wonder on the coast is the Mar Menor. It is a shallow lagoon or pool, which is the largest of its kind in Spain. The water in the lagoon is very salty and maintains a hot temperature (5ºC above the average Mediterranean temperature). It has four openings or passages that lead to the sea. The mountainous scenery of the region is full of foothills that roll in from the Penibetica and Subbetica ranges that help create the Guadalentin River and Sangonera depressions.
The first thing that strikes you about Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort is the wide open spaces, extensive gardens and low-density construction, creating a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a peaceful holiday.
It was the home of the Riquelme Family, descendants of Guillen Riquelme, a noble knight who accompanied King Alfonso X the Learned on his conquest of Murcia.
Affixed to the facade of this palace-house, his coat of arms displays the ornamental figures that identify and distinguish the noble family to which he belonged, and the other which he joined by marriage. The helm and crest of its minor shield over a field and a large barracks represent the distinguished warrior to whom they belonged.
The Riquelme family was noted for the patronage of the arts they practiced over many generations. One of the artists they patronized was the famous Murcian sculptor Francisco Salzillo. The museum in Murcia that bears his name is home to many of his works of art, such as the world famous nativity scene commissioned by Jesualdo Riquelme y Fontes for his Murcia Palace. Another patronized artist circa 1603 was sculptor Cristóbal de Salazar, who created the marble sepulchers for the great Riquelme chapel in the San Francisco de Murcia Convent.
The entire Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort is centered around the historic country house.
There are a number of shopping malls around Murcia we have listed a few recommendations below.
The closest food supermarket to the apartment is the one onsite and in Sucina. The one in Sucina is called ‘Upper Auto Servicios’. It is located down the road sign posted ‘Hacienda Requelme La terda, Paraleja Golf’ (the road opposite the petrol station).
There is also a new supermarket called ‘Dicost’. It is very well stocked and can be found right at the top of Sucina (past the petrol station).
There is also a large general store in Sucina. It sells lots of random items such as hair dryers, water, beer, lilos, sweets, kitchen ware etc. This is opposite the restaurant Rosario.
The largest shopping mall is ‘Dos Mares’, see below for details:
Centro Dos Mares
Located on the outskirts of San Pedro del Pinatar (on exit 777 off the AP7, postcode 30730). Dos Mares has around 60 shops and restaurants over 2 floors including a large Eroski supermarket (like Tescos Extra) and cinema. Shops include Woman's Secret, Springfield, Jack and Jones, Pull and Bear, Inside and Peter Murray. The food court offers a wide variety of choice including Spanish restaurants, Burger King, Mc Donald's and Haagen Dazs. There is a large bowling alley in the shopping complex also.

"Great apartment in perfect location"
I stayed at the Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort with a group of friends on a break from the UK weather and the standard of the accommodation and location of the apartment was perfect.
The apartment included all the amenities we needed and had its own very large communal pool very close by. The complex has a very nice restaurant and bar and was only a short walk away from these facilities. The town of Sucina was a short drive away and had many different options for eating and drinking in a very friendly atmosphere.
Our group were not golfers but we spoke to some keen golf enthusiasts in the bar and they also raved about the golf course that surrounds the complex and it was one of the best they had played at outside of the UK. We ventured into La Manga and los Alcazares on a couple of evenings and although there were slightly further away, both had excellent night life available.
The apartment is also only about 20 minutes from Murcia airport. We have already booked to stay at the apartment again in October and can't wait to return.
