The Italian made sofa bed provides extra sleeping accommodation for 2 adults plus there is a full size travel cot and high chair for the little ones should you require. We've provided 2 sets of golf clubs too!!! which obviously saves on the ridiculous added cost to bring yours over. For your sunbathing needs we have two great sun loungers with deep padded cushions for your full length, these are more than welcomed around the pool side, we also have a matching small table and parasol for use around the pool or on the patio and we have 4 fold away sun loungers for the pool or beach use. On the patio there is a large rectangle tasteful storage unit and in there is a vast array of buckets, spades, games, toys, inflatables for all our guests enjoyement.
The largest outdoor play area, featuring a great park for both small and large children is a 5 min walk away as is the resort centre which features, 3 bars, (Dovecoat, main restaurant and pizza bar), 2 restaurants, main with Al la Carte, bar menu and pizzeria (get the calzone it's out of this world!) the golf shop where you can book any of the golf resorts in the area, supermarket - extensively stocked and very reasonably priced and the driving range. Note the main bar features some form of entertainment every evening, during last year's warm weather season, a children's entertainer featured every wednesday 7-8.30 which was excellent, thursday featured a quiz and then live music/bands played on other evenings. The dovecoat bar also ran a variety of entertainment sessions from outdoor salsa lessons to live music, has a happy hour each week and has a fantastic and extensive cocktail list which has to be sampled. All the staff at the eateries are an absolute credit to the Hacienda and really do go out of there way to make your stay and expereince special.
There are outdoor tennis courts, an outdoor gym, a paddleball court, petanque pitch and foorball pitches to the right of the apartment - about a 10 min walk. There is also a great footpath that goes all the round the resort (about 3.5 miles) and is great for an evening stroll whilst the sun sets or taking a bike and riding round or for the fit folk a good power walk or jog.
Hacienda Riquelme is the fourth Polaris resort to be completed and forms part of the much acclaimed Nicklaus Golf trail. Guests at the apartment enjoy discounted green fees, and the Hacienda resort offers a very open environment where you can enjoy great golf, food and climate. Most visitors, including my golf mad husband, agree that the Hacienda course is the best of all the Polaris resorts so far. The resort is also very well set up with numerous other play areas and equipment to amuse the children on walks around the course or resort - not just the play area 5 mins walk away from our apartment.
For non golfers, there are a wide range of activities available. The calm warm waters of the Mar Menor and its beautiful beaches are the perfect place to find safe swimming, water sports and diving. As the Mar Menor is a secluded bay the warm water is particularly suitable for young children, some of the beaches further North on the mediterranean coast have more waves but are still a safe height for the little ones.The ancient city of Murcia to the North and Cartagena to the South and the surrounding areas are a must for those wishing to explore historical buildings and architecture of this region.
The Sierra Espuña contains Murcia's largest extensions of forest, as well as being one of its most exemplary areas of outstanding natural beauty. There is plenty here for the nature lover, cyclist or walker. Many guests who have used our apartment (we've been renting it our now to family and friends for some time and many people have returned to enjoy it time and time again) have all filled in various pages of the comprehensive welcome pack which is left in the apartment for you to enjoy and added lots of sightseeing, both historical, pleasureable and things to do within the surrounding areas. So please take a look and add to it any great places you visit whilst here.
This apartment most definately caters for every single age group and the resort and surrounding area caters for all needs. People do love it here, it is rural Spain but with class, great eating/dining experiences to be had, fantastic beaches and other resorts to explore and lovely relaxed families/couples like us and you wanting a great holiday expereince. We do suggest a car to get around and off resort, though that isn't really a necessity as Sucina the nearest town has a variety of eating ad drinking establishements and is a 30 min walk from the resort on a very safe road - lots of people walk it anyway and if you do require it we can organise transport to and from the airport and this contact also does other short excursions when requested to do so, friends of ours used this last year to get from the airport and visit the Water Park in Murica - great service.
Prices are for the property per day/week in UK pounds.
NB: these prices exclude the one off cleaning fee of 70 euros payable locally. Discounts available for long term lets (3 weeks plus). Please contact us for pricing.
Changeover day - any day available that suits you and booking flights.
Changeover days are flexible dependant upon availability. The apartment is available from 12pm on arrival, unless otherwise arranged, and should be vacated by 11am on day of departure - unless otherwise arranged. Our fantastic key holders Jayne & Melvin are wonderful at arranging themselves around the apartment when people book with night flights, the only time we cannot make this happen if someone else is following another guest on the same day, do always ask when booking then everyones needs can be accomodated. I really want people to come have an amazing time then we see them again.
As we have had the apartment now 6 years and come here at least 4 times in the year, we have built up a wealth of contacts and things to do - so should you wish to hire a boat (with or without skipper) to go out on day trips, visit other islands, been driven around, taxied to a particular restaurant for a night out so you don't have to drive, do ask me or take a look at our great welcome pack in the apartment where all this information can be found and is extremely reasonably priced.

Location description from owner
The Region of Murcia region
During your stay at Hacienda Riquelme, you may decide to venture out into the local area. Taking just a 15-minute drive to Los Alcazares, you will find some of the best award winning beaches and promenades in Spain. The shores of the Mar Menor bay are perfect for children and adults alike, with the low tides and constant warm temperature (due to the low density of this water), it is perfect for swimming. Take a stroll along the promenade, sample the various food delights on the front, hire loungers and parasols or just sit and watch the world go by. We also have many contacts for boat, fishing trips and doing a variety of water sports both listed in our welcome pack in the apartment or I can provide contact numbers before you fly out.
Los Alcazares also has a number of street markets, Saturday close to the Las Velas shopping centre and Tuesday close to the Rio seca on the main road, the big Sunday market at the Autocine is also close by. Both are fabulous places for getting all those holiday bargains, leather items, jewellery etc. Great as well for getting a weekly shop in of fresh fruit and veg.
The famous and therapeutic mud baths of the Mar Menor are close by. In Lo Pagan people come from all over the world to bask in this thick black mud. It is reputed to have many therapeutic qualities and "nueve banos" or nine baths are recommended for the process to be most beneficial.
The historical city of Cartagena is close by where one finds many Roman ruins. Much of the city has been regenerated and some of the streets pedestrianised, the whole port area is now looking superb. Close to the city a new Shopping arcade has been recently opened and the range of shops is fantastic, day trips to these attractions can be easily organised by your selves
There are also other fantastic areas surrounding the apartment in other areas of Murcia. The water park and Zoo is a must for the kids and adults alike, great day out and always worth googling to see if they have any coupons off the entrance price listed on the web site. Casa Padero in the mountains where you can horse ride, quad bike, shoot, Kayak, great place run by British people and will even come to the resort and collect you as part of one of their day rates. Mountain and bike trials are on our doorstop too, as are a host of spa's in the area. So there really is lots to do whether your an adrenlin junkie or just want to chill out.

It was an absolute pleasure to have you both Alan & Joy. Please feel free to return at any point in the future. Kind regards Vicky Queenan
“beautiful well equipped apartment”
The apartment is extremely well equipped for anyone holidaying with their children and is only metres away from the lovely pool. The outside patio area a great bonus with plenty space for entertaining. we would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to holiday in this area of spain. .
“Absolutely loved it!!! Great place to chill.”
stayed here 2 weeks in June with husband, 7 year old & 3 year old. Apartment great had everything we needed and more. Loved the whole chilled out atmosphere, space around us and the huge pool. Everyone really friendly & going up to the bars & restaurant on an evening was lovely', As was going into Sucina (nearest village with an array of bars & restaurants). Unless you just want to stay on resort a car is recommended, very easy to drive over there and you need to visit the fantastic beaches on offer. Booking to go back again this year for sure.
So pleased you loved it as much as we do... Looking forward to you rebooking. Thank you
“Excellent... everything you could need ... home from home !”
Stayed here with my husband and 2 teenage daughters, ideal location on the resort, immediate access to the gorgeous pool... The apartment is furnished with no detail left out to suit our needs as well as thouse who travel with younger children. The place itself is spotless and its surroundings are beautiful.. I, myself am not into golf but those who are its fantastic !.. The main house and its grounds offer entertainment most nights of the week but for a change we definately recommend sucina a couple of miles down the road... various bars and eateries at reasonable prices.
