Reviews & Testimonials from Previous Guests

The apartment is spacious and comfortable with a decent kitchen providing the essentials if you want to cook.  The television has all the UK channels. The balcony is a good size and quite a sun trap in the winter months which was lovely. We stayed for two months over Christmas (2018) and La Torre wa very quiet and peaceful, exactly as we like it.  The complex is well maintained and the gardens are beautiful.  The exterior of the apartments were being painted while we were there and they were looking much improved after their makeover.

The apartment was lovely, well equipped and very clean. Located overlooking one of the pools, set within very well maintained garden area. The resort itself was very nice with good clubhouse atmosphere in the evenings. Lovely food and good entertainment. I would recommend it and would love to visit again. Contact with the owner Colleen was excellent and the welcome and service from Claire, management company was very well appreciated. I will be looking forward to booking again. Thank you!

Many thanks for our stay in your beautifully equipped lovely apartment at La Torre. We have had a lovely holiday from 10th - 19th August. Best wishes, Chris

I booked this apartment for a short golfing and family holiday for myself and husband and our daughter, son in law and 2 children. We stayed 3 nights from 30th May. The apartment is modern, bright and airy , spacious and well furnished, offering all amenities needed to suit all of our needs, from the oldest to the youngest guest. We did not find ourselves wanting for anything during our stay. I would certainly agree with the description 'luxury apartment'. Everything was clean and in good order. We all enjoyed breakfast every morning on the large balcony that overlooks the pool and gardens. Whilst the boys were off enjoying the golf at the resort the rest of us enjoyed the pool and gardens. There is a well equipped supermarket nearby and the town centre offers places to eat and drink. We had lovely sunny weather during our stay. My only disappointment is that we were not there for longer. I have already recommended this apartment to friends and family and will certainly consider booking again, but next time our trip will be longer!

Stayed at this fantastic apartment in May & had a great time. The apartment overlooks some lovely pools so is ideal for families with children & as the weather was fantastic in early May we made the most of the pools with our baby. The apartment is modern & clean & has all you need for a relaxing holiday including baby equipment free of charge & also wi-fi. Booking was straight forward & the housekeepers were very attentive when meeting us with the keys & providing information. Hopefully we will go back again later in the year as it is a beautiful area & we would like to see more.

Just got back from a wonderful time at La Torre. 

The apartment is close to the all the main amenities and the golf course is magnificent. We even made friends with some local geckos! 

Sadly we missed the hog bbq, but the local food was great, especially in nearby San Javier. 

All in all a very relaxing holiday, would definitely come again.

Enjoyed our weekend break in the sun. Relaxed by the pool and particularly enjoyed the rounds of golf. 

The room was clean and tidy and quiet, Mrs. Badger was very helpful and advised us on bars and restaurants that were a short drive away. San Javier was delightful along with the strip at Mar Menor. We even spent an evening go karting and riding a hog! 

Will be back again for some sun. 

Thanks, James.

Good clean apartment, close to golf, supermarket etc. Owner supplied loads of information. Golf course was great. Would stay here again

 

We had a wonderful holiday, we were met at the airport and everything was very well organised. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need for a great holiday. The supermarket is very close as are the restaurants on the complex. I would definitely stay here again.

Just back from a lovely week at this apartment. Accommodation clean and modern and stocked with everything we could possibly need. Location great too, 3 minute walk to Clubhouse, 5 minutes to supermarket and resort centre. A.C. and ceiling fans worked a treat as ave. temps 36 deg during our stay. Has a lovely spacious balcony which is shaded so very pleasant to sit out on. Key holder responded very promptly when I needed his help.Colleen was very easy to deal with and returned deposit really quickly. Would def. recommend and/or return here.

 

Hello Colleen :-) 
We would like to thank you for renting us your apartment, it was perfect ! :-) 
The best service from Darryl, everything was excellent :-) 
Hope to visit again some time:-) 
Wish you a nice summer:-) 

Best regards Mariann 

Perfect in every way. When we arrived we were greeted by the keyholders,and after a long journey we were so grateful for the no hassle,friendly and quick wizz around the apartment then peace. The whole site is gorgeous and the apartment is aesthetically pleasing as well as very comfy,with everything supplied-even a fab cheese grater. When we left I needed to go back as I mislaid my 'phone(FURIOUS husband) but Anette was very kind and let me back in without delay or complaint that she had to make a special journey.We have absolutely no difficulty in recommending this as an ideal holiday destination for adults and children alike,so thank you Coleen for letting us use your lovely Spanish home whist we look for one of our own.

We had the good fortune to spend a weekend at this very comfortable, spacious apartment. There were 4 adults in our party and we had plenty of room. The lounge is very comfortably furnished with everything that you would need for your holiday. The beds were very comfortable and we had a peaceful night's sleep. The apartment is very clean and well equipped and would suit families with very young children as Colleen has thoughtfully provided some baby equipment. We enjoyed a stroll around the complex, taking in the Bamboo Bar where, at the time, they had a DJ playing some very good music around the pool. There are other bars and restaurants on the complex, but sadly we were not there long enough to try others! We stocked up with a few supplies at the supermarket which was open until quite late and had a very good stock of just about everything you could want for your holiday. We enjoy golf and although we did not manage to fit in a round on this trip we did look at the course and the driving range and will certainly book a round when we visit again. 
It was a most relaxing weekend spent at the apartment, sitting on the large, comfy balcony overlooking a very impressive pool area, again suitable for adults and children and plenty of greenery. We did venture into the pool and the water was refreshing and clean. The whole area is very well maintained. 

We had a short drive out to Pilar De La Horodada and to the beach at Torre De La Horodada from where we had a light lunch and a lovely stroll along the promenade to Mil Palmeras. 

All in all a great weekend, 
thank you and we hope to return very soon.

Wonderful and restful holidays! 
We are a French family with 3 children(8,10,13) and Everybody in the family had a very good time at Colleen's appartment. First I would like to thank Colleen who is a very kind and available person. The apartment is really cosy and comfortable,clean and modern. The situation is perfect in a wonderful garden with two swimming pools. We had a large balcony with view of the swimming pool and it was a pleasure to eat everyday on this balcony. Our car was parked in the garage and we really liked having our car in a safe place which was very cool because it was very hot. The supermarket in the complex is nice but we enjoyed going to the commercial centre in San Javier : Dos Mares. (15 minutes by car) The keyholder , Darril is a very kind person who is very available. We forgot our keys inside the appartment and Darril came 10 minutes later to open the door. To conclude I would like to say it's an ideal place for a family with children because the place is very safe and people around are very nice.

A lovely little break 
Review Submitted: 13 July 2012 Date of Stay: July 2012 
This was a great little break with my partner and 3 year old son.. Firstly the apartment was immaculate and well presented, we had a very spacious balcony with view of the swimming pool and beautiful surrounding gardens and had a BBQ one night on our balcony from the food bought at the local well stocked supermarket. 
The actual complex had over 18 swimming pools to choose from and if that wasn't enough you could always use the hotel which had an infinity pool for a small fee. 
Overall we were very satisfied with our stay in this superb apartment and would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a break away in this beautiful place. It's very kid friendly and Colleen was extremely helpful in answering any questions we had. Highly recommended.... thanks very much for an enjoyable stay, we'll be back!

It was that good we had to return! 
Review Submitted: 17 July 2012 Date of Stay: July 2012 
My partner and I stayed at Colleen's apartment last July. We were so impressed with our stay that we had to return! 
Our stay this year was nothing but relaxing. In the short time that we spent at La Torre we managed to fully recharge our batteries lounging by the pool and consuming a large amount of good food and wine. 
We visited the hotels indoor spa which was an excellent find, as was the outdoor pool at the hotel which had a well stocked bar and beautiful infinity pool which over looked the golf course. 
There is an excellent Indian restaurant which is a short cab ride away called the Jaipur Palace, we even took food back to the apartment that we couldn't manage in the restaurant. 
The Irish bar never fails to give us an excellent boozy night. We tried Bamboo this year which is a new bar/ restaurant/ nightclub on the complex which accommodates all ages and is definitely worth a visit. 
Thank you again Colleen for another superb holiday and we shall definitely be returning next year!

A wonderful holiday, complimented by a clean, modern, hassle-free apartment - it had everything we needed, and in good order, so we didn't have to worry about a thing (sun loungers, kettle, bed linen, kitchen utensils, etc). 
The guy we met to get the keys was very polite and informative - he knew a lot about the local area (and further) which helped us a great deal as we had no idea of what to do or where to go for good food and drinks. 
We sampled a restaurant within the complex on one evening which served tasty local food, as they were hosting some sort of BBQ celebration. There were other restaurants which looked decent (an Italian if I recall), however we tended to eat out to make use of the hire car. 

The Irish bar nearby the apartment is definitely worth a visit...this became our second home :) 

The highlight for me was enjoying fresh bread (bought from the local supermarket nearby), coffee and a great view of the pool area on the balcony in the mornings...beautiful. 

So all in all, a great place to stay, even if golf isn't the main reason for your visit. 
It was one of those holidays with no issues or complications, so credit and thanks to Colleen for making our stay so enjoyable.

Delighted to have found this apartment via Holiday Rentals .... Colleen offers a 5* service & great apartment which provides everything you could need for a relaxing break in the sun. The apartment delivered on every promise & we would 100% recommend Colleen & her team to anyone. Thank you & hopefully see you again next year!

Loved the apartment and it’s location within the complex. Easy walking distance to the supermarket and restaurants. 

The apartment was extremely comfortable and it felt very much like a home from home. 

We mainly catered for ourselves and took advantage of the BBQ and the great kitchen facilities. 

We are not golfers but thoroughly enjoyed “having a go” on the driving range. 

We hired bikes for a day and enjoyed cycling around the complex and to the nearby town of Roldan. [Very flat for those like me who do not like cycling up hills]. 

We rented a car for the week and enjoyed trips to the beaches at Los Alcazares and La Manga. We also had a day strolling around Cartagena. 

The owner Colleen was extremely easy to deal with and responded immediately to any emails we sent. 

We were delighted when, within a matter of hours of contacting the keyholder Darryl, a broken sun bed was replaced. No questions asked, absolutely no hassle – a special thank you to Colleen. 

All in all we had a great holiday and would not hesitate in recommending the Apartment and the complex to our family and friends. 

Colleen, thank you. 

What a lovely week's break, so wish it could have been longer. The apartment was lovely, as was the pool area and only £300 for the week in the school holidays - what a bargain. Plus an easy 15 minute drive from Murcia airport. 
Went for walks in the morning around the golf course, next time will take the golf clubs!!!! 
We definitely recommend the apartment, plus the Jaipur Indian restaurant nearby (red building).

Just got back from a long weekend to La Torre. Apartment beautiful and very well equipped, supermarket and restaurants within easy walking distance, two pools right outside apartment and superb golf course. Spent most of our time by the pool however, there is plenty to do in the local area that is easy to get to by car. Key-holder Darryl was extremely helpful our entire stay. Will be going again soon!

Loved it here, really relaxed environment, spent most days lazing by the pool! A few days perfect golf on the course and popped down to the beach for some snorkeling. Perfect retreat. Especially for that price! Return flights only cost us £70 and the apartment was £220 for the week, bargain!

We stayed at La Torre for a week & found it very relaxing. We particularly enjoyed the proximity of the restaurants & bars to the apartment. 

Even the supermarket was only a short walk away and we enjoyed the stroll to get the papers, fresh fruit and provisions and enjoyed a cappuccino in their bistro cafe while we were shopping, even though the apartment was only minutes away. To go for a swim, it was simply a case of walking downstairs and out the back door and we were at the pool, so there was never a need to have to change into our swimming gear poolside. 

The apartment was clean, light and airy with really comfy furniture and all the equipment we needed, so sometimes it was a job to go out some evenings. The people we met were so friendly and we only had to mention we were going to venture outside the resort and were inundated with local places to visit, from beaches to bars and markets to malls. 

We were very impressed and also felt it was a safe place to bring our grandchildren next time. 

We had a lovely stay at La Torre. The apartment was perfect, very modern and clean, with everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed breakfast on the balcony every morning with the beautiful views. 

Restaurants, bars and a well stocked supermarket all within walking distance which we found really handy as we did not hire a car. We spent one evening in the Irish bar near the golf complex, staff were friendly and drinks were cheap.... Perfect! 

We found the golf driving range to be reasonably priced so we spent a few hours seeing who could hit the ball the furthest! 

I would highly recommend your apartment and am looking forward to visiting again soon!
