La Manga Club Resort was opened in 1972 as a place for both leisure and sport. There are all the facilities to have a good time, especially as a family. It has many holiday homes and rentals to choose from and is more of a chill out holiday, not my normal cup of tea, but sometimes you just need to relax and recharge.
How to get there.
La Manga is located on the Costa Blanca. The nearest airport is Murcia Can Javier but Alicante is not too far away. The easiest way to get to the resort is to hire a car which also allows you to get out and about and explore the local area.
Where to stay.
There is such a wide variety of choice when it comes to places to stay. Hotels, rentals, villas, golf cottages- all sorts for varying budgets.
We stayed at La Quinta Club. This place holds so many memories for me as we used to go nearly every year when I was younger as my grandparents had a timeshare there. The apartments are self-catering with balconies equipped with barbeques. Those on the top floor have a roof patio and a few have a small garden. They are all light, airy and clean with plenty of space for everyone whether in a 2 or 3 bedroom villa. On site there is a pool with an in built bar, table tennis, a small jungle gym, restaurant- anything you may want for a relaxing holiday.
What to do in resort.
There is plenty to do in resort especially when it comes to keeping fit; that is if you can tear yourself away from your pool.
Golf- for any true golfers there are 3 full courses. For anyone less so (e.g. me) there is a pitch and putt course and a couple of crazy golf courses.
Tennis- there are a loads of tennis courts you can book for an hour or lessons if you so desire in the centre of the resort.
Gym- down by the tennis courts is a gym if you fancy that you can get a membership for.
Cycling/ running/ walking- there are plenty of options for this which are all quite challenging due to the hilly nature of the area.
Shopping/ cafes- there are many around chill out in or little boutiques you can pop into.
Where to eat.
There are many options for food. I have not tried all of them but I can recommend:
Luigis- classic Italian food that is delicious.
Victors- world food.
El Bistro- serves tapas at lunch
Meat point- really good steaks etc.
Visit the Sunday market at Cabo de Palos.
Spend a day in Murcia or Cartagena.
