The first thing that attracted me to this property was the price! Extremely competitive, even for peak summer dates. The second thing was the pictures. The apartment looked clean and tastefully furnished. I could certainly see my family and I feeling comfortable there. Finally, location, location, location. Just 20mins from Murcia airport which has low cost, reliable flights on Ryanair. I'm pleased to report that I was not disappointed! The apartment was pristine with a lot of homely touches such as novels, board games and DVDs. It was also great to have Sky TV channels so we didn't miss our favourite programmes from back home. The balcony even had a view of the ocean in the distance. The pool was also very close to the apartment, very handy for our little one who's not quite ready for swimming in the sea. There were so many beaches to choose from within easy reach, each with it's own individual appeal. Our favourite was Playa Cabo Roig which is a wide sandy beach with an excellent restaurant overlooking the water at one end of it serving a wide range of tapas and seafood. The town of Orihuela had a good range of grocery shops and restaurants, all close to the apartment. And in nearby bustling Torrevieja we found even more amenities, including malls and a waterpark. Throughout our stay, the keyholders Steve and Karen were absolute gems, giving us suggestions on places to go, things to do etc. All in all, it was a thoroughly enjoyable vacation at a very reasonable price. We've already recommended the property to family and friends and plan to return there ourselves later this year.
