We really liked La Colina apartments last year as there are only about 12 or so and therefore it seemed nice and quiet even though we were there in July.
The pool is lovely and more than adequate for the amount of guests staying in La Colina. We had a duplex apartment which was very spacious and set out over two floors. Just bear in mind that one of the bedrooms could be on a different level from the others if you have small children. Property had all you could want in terms of equipment and the small utility area was useful.
We liked being in a central spot within La Manga Club but not in a large development and we could get the children to all of their activities within a few minutes walk. Looking forward to returning this year and planning a half term trip.
We have stayed in Bellaluz on many occasions and wanted to try somewhere different just really for a change but also for something a bit larger as we now have 3 children under 8 years old.
The La Colina apartments were a good choice for us as we rented a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms which happened to be on the ground floor so that was good as our youngest is still not that great with stairs. It was decorated nicely and we had everything we needed in the kitchen to self-cater. We could not afford to eat out every day so this was important to us. We hired a cot for our youngest which was only a travel cot but we did not have to take any bedding as this was included in the hire cost and it was put in our bedroom ready for when we got there.
The groceries left for us on arrival were very handy so we could make a drink and some toast when we got there.
We went to have a look at the childrens club which was only a few minutes walk from our apartment and it looked like a good place to leave the kids if you needed to because you wanted to play tennis or golf I suppose but for us it was too expensive just for a little time off and for 3 kids it was out of our price range.
We feel that the price difference between La Colina and Bellaluz was worth it and we would love to return.
We chose from the description on the web a property in the La Colina block of apartments. I had not stayed there before and chose a 2 bedroom apartment with two bathrooms and we were very happy with the standard when we arrived to start our holiday. Discovered there are no more than about fifteen apartments and some have 3 bedrooms and are on two levels. The pool was lovely and more than big enough for all the residents to use. Generally the place was nice and peaceful and helped to make sure we had a really relaxing time. Great to see some new places to eat appearing and that everything was as clean as usual in all the public places.
We have just returned from a 10 day break in La Colina, La Manga Club. We rented a 3 bedroom La Colina apartment from La Manga Holidays via the website and it all went very smoothly. The apartment was spacious and very well maintained. La Colina has its own pool with a childrens paddling pool. We also used the large pool by the tennis centre. The club itself is great for families and the junior club was great for the kids. We played pitch and putt golf and crazy golf and went to a number of the restaurants on the club, including Si bar, Maribels and a really nice dinner on our last night at La Finca. I would definitely recommend La Manga Club to family and friends.
