The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the main plaza so is very quiet at night with no noise from the bars and restaurants. There is a local bar with nightly music within 2 minutes, Morgans Bar,and a further bar called "Cheers" around the corner from the apartment if you cant be bothered to walk to the plaza. Next to Cheers Bar is a local grocery shop for all your small shopping needs, bread, milk, groceries, alcohol, newspapers, newly opened 2011. Saves you having to walk down to the Plaza. Cheers Bar great for breakfasts, lunch, dinner and nightly entertainment. New bar Morgans 2 minutes from the apartment, nightly entertainment and food . Some of the apartments are residential, so it must be a wonderful location to live all year round. The apartment is home from home and we invite you to enjoy a wonderful location.
Villamartin area, Costa Blanca
The reason we chose Villamartin was because it is an established resort with everything you need for a great holiday. There are shops at the plaza that have the usual everyday needs for a self catering holiday. There are numerous restaurants from Mexican to Italian. At night the plaza is lit up with holiday makers dining in the palm covered court with parrots nesting above. There are various bars on the three levels from the Irish bar and and many more pubs and restaurants.
The entertainment ranges from disco to karaoke or the singer belting out the old favourites. Music for every age young or old. All in a self contained plaza where the children can play safely. There is also a cinema and bowling alley.
For the golfer there is a challenging 18 hole championship golf course 10 minutes walk from the apartment. The Open was played here some years ago. The golfers can be seen around the resort driving back to their apartments in golf buggies. A further three golf courses are all a short drive from Villamartin. A golfers paradise!
If you want a change from the plaza, there is another development 15 mins walk from Villamartin called Los Dolses. It has the usual restaurants and bars. There is also a very good Thai/Japanese restaurant which would rival anything in Europe. For the budget minded there is also a chinese restaurant that has a buffet menu for €4.50 per person. It is very popular and you need to get there early.
There are several beaches 5 mins drive from Villamartin, so a hire car would be useful. The beaches are all blue flag and go for miles.
Places to visit on the Costa Blanca
The main town heading towards Alicante is called Torrevieja which is 15 minutes drive from Villamartin. There are all the quality shops you would expect of a larger town. It is also home to the hypermarket for all the smokers and drinkers. It has some lovely restaurants and a large marina. There is a promenade which stretches the length of the town and is lit up at night. A funfair is located at the seafront. The waterpark is also at Torrevieja
Heading towards Cartagenta is the Resort of La Manga, about 40 to 50 minutes drive where the England football team trained. It is the Las Vegas of the Costa Blanca and growing in popularity. In Cartagenta there is a roman excavation and museum, marina, boat excursions, and wonderful shopping in a old town, great for a day out.
A short drive from Villamartin is the charming village of San Miguel which is well worth a visit. There is a cave restaurant which is built into the hill and you have to book early. There is also a bar called the "peanut bar". It is a local's house who wanted to turn it into a bar several years ago. The Mayor refuse to give him permission (he had upset him somehow). So your drinks are free but you pay for the peanuts he serves with your drink!
Just returned from a week long stay with family and have to say that we were very pleased on all fronts, apartment had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. Would recommend a car as the journey from the Murcia airport is approx 25 minutes and getting around on the road network is very simple. Handover of the keys was very good no issues, when we arrived at the apartment we found beer, wine and a few everyday essentials already there. We are already thinking of our next visit to the apartment, great location for golf lovers as its an ideal base.

Our second visit was not quite as smooth as the first with a minor mix up at check in, but Sharon was great again and sent the keys at a very late hour, thanks.
The pool and grounds were very clean and well maintained and the apartment was also very clean however now needing a little TLC as is now getting a little tiered.
But with this said it is still a great value base for what is a very nice area with the new shopping complex just down the road in La Zenia and the lovely beaches we all had a great time.
Glad you enjoyed your visit to the apartment again. Thank you for you review. We have already made some changes and upgraded the apartment since your last visit, and had the shutters fixed and the sliding wardrobe. We are planning a visit ourselves in the next 2 months to do any maintenance work required, fresh paintwork and a re-vamp ready for the rest of the 2014 season. Thank you once again for your custom in the last couple of years and your review.

Very nice apartment in excellent area. Very quiet but within easy reach of all amenities and with its own communal pool.
The apartment was very well stocked with everything you need whilst on holiday. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We arrived at 10.00PM and Sharon was there to greet us. She showed us round and told us what was what, then it was round to Morgans Bar for a night cap.
The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Everything was fresh & clean. Plenty of spare bedding & towels. A well kitted out kitchen and air-con in the bedroom - heaven on those warm nights.
The pool was cleaned daily and was lovely & cool after the beach. All in all we had a great 2 weeks break away from the UK and will be looking to stay there again in the future.

Communication between myself and the owner and then the managers for the apartment was brilliant and cant fault it. The apartment itself is lovely and had everything we needed for our week stay. The surrounding area/ apartments and night life was pretty quiet but we expected this due to the time of year we went. Great hol Thanks

Lomas de Golf is not a beach resort, but there is a shuttle bus which runs to the beaches from Villamartin Plaza each day in high season. Book with that in mind and you will not be disappointed.
We (3 adults) booked a week in early September, and arrived early afternoon meeting Pete the property manager at the Plaza. We had contacted him by telephone en route from Alicante, and his final directions were clear and easy to follow. Nice guy too!
The apartment is on the first floor, and the steps are pretty steep. My wife struggled a wee bit, but she is not as mobile as she once was. My sis and I found it ok, but if you have kids, you might want to be careful. There is not much of a balcony/veranda and most of it was taken up with the sun-beds (2 off) which were stored there. Pete advised us to put them out next to the pool, telling us that they are quite safe left out and put back upon departure. There is security on site, and it is patrolled regularly so that items are not stolen.
The balcony itself doesn’t really get much sun at that time of year so we didn’t sit out at all, preferring to sit by the pool or head off to the beach. The two bedrooms were more than adequate. Only one room, the double bedroom, has air conditioning but with the windows open, we found that there was sufficient breeze to keep the whole place relatively cool. This was with an outside daytime temperature of around 32deg C.
The twin bedroom is a wee bit tight because of the biggish wardrobe, but we found it ok. There is a fan which we used during the night. The kitchen is great and the second fridge was welcome for cold drinks. There was plenty of room for food AND beer! We didn’t like the breakfast bar arrangement for eating, so we brought the little table in from outside. We only ate breakfast there so for us this wasn’t a great problem, but it might be an issue for families on a budget who want to fully self-cater. The TV worked perfectly, with satellite (not Sky) and there is a DVD player as well. More space could be created with a modern wall mounted-flat-screen and a single fridge which would make space for a proper table and chairs.
If this review seems picky, it’s not meant to be. It’s honest and I have to say that the apartment was great value. We were not disappointed. We have paid a lot more for a lot less. The property was spotlessly clean, as was the pool and surrounding area. All in all, a great little property, which could do with a little TLC.

Thank you for the last review. We have repaired the door and it is in full working order. Painting completed in apartment. Full yearly maintenance completed last week, which we do every year. Jobs included new shower, shower curtain, general painting and repairs, new sun loungers. Glad to hear that having only one minor problem with the front door (due to wet weather over winter period) that the last guests in the apartment fully enjoyed their stay.We always welcome our customers comments. Thank you.
All building work is now complete around the development. The only work being carried out is internal, so there is no noise. The new buildings are behind the existing apartments and so are not visible. In regards to the last review it did mention that even when the building work was going on there was little noise and it did not detract from the enjoyment of the holiday.
POOL IS RIGHT NEXT TO APARTMENT AND IS VERY SAFE FOR SMALL CHILDREN, THERE IS A SHOWER AND LARGE GRASSED AREA. NO PETS ARE ALLOWED TO BE KEPT IN THE APARTMENT AS THE COMMUNITY RULES FORBID THIS.
WE ALSO WILL NOT ACCEPT BOOKINGS FROM GROUPS UNDER THE AGE OF 25, WITHOUT CHECKING WITH US FIRST. THANK YOU.
