“Like home from home but in the sun!” My husband and I have stayed in Polaris World Mar Menor on a couple of occasions previously but in smaller properties as there was just the two of us.
We stayed at Villa Ombu in June 2012 for 2 weeks with my family from Ireland and Malta as part of a 50th birthday celebration for myself.
What can I say - the villa is everything you want in a holiday property - spotlessly clean, spacious luxurious and comfortable.
We particularly wanted air con in the bedrooms which many villas on the resort dont actually have - so this was part of the reason we booked this lovely property- having found out to our cost that the norm is to only have air con downstairs- Villa Ombus bedrooms all have their own individual air con units which is a boon on the warm summer nights - we didnt use the air con downstairs preferring to make use of the fans which were very effective,
The kitchen is exceedingly well equipped and we loved the water cooler - refils for this are purchased at the on site supermarket and are reasonably priced.
The pool area has sun all day and is large and well furnished with plenty of shade for those who prefer it
We made great use of the outside dining area and enjoyed the barbeque on more than one occasion
Many thanks to Janet who thoughtfully provided a bottle of bubbly for me on arrival- very much appreciated and got my birthday celebrations off to a great start!
There are several very nice restaurants on the complex- we loved Flavour and Bombay Dreams- also a couple of bars - an Irish style one attached to the Hotel and the Black Pearl out on the Boulevard where most of the restaurants are situated.
The on site supermarket is excellent and reasonably priced but if you want to do a big shop there are plenty of supermarkets within a short drive such as Eroski at the Dos Mares shopping centre or SuperValu on the way to Los Alcazares.
All in all this was a wonderful holiday and we will definitely return in the future
