We were very pleased with our villa in Los Naranjos at La Manga Club.
There are not that many villas so the two large pools are sufficient for everyone. The big bonus for us was that one of the pools is heated so we could use it during our February break.
Los Naranjos villas are also in the middle of La Manga Club so we could allow the children some freedom and we could go out at night to eat and not worry about driving. Lovely spacious villa and the design and layout of the villas both inside and outside work really well.
They are a great choice especially if you are planning to go to La Manga Club out of the main summer period so you make good use of the heated pool.
I told the agent that I wanted a good size villa with but it needed to be in a central location within La Manga Club. I was led by their recommendation as I had never been there before. Ideally I wanted 4 bedrooms with some outdoor space to BBQ with a nice pool close by.
I was delighted when I arrived to find that my wish list had been met and that the Los Naranjos villas are of a high standard in a location that means you really do not need to have a car during your stay. Of course a car is useful when you travel to and from the airport and maybe if you want to visit local sites.
The furnishings were of a good quality and the children were delighted to find themselves within a few yards of a swimming pool, the area around the two pools and the gardens are well maintained and it was great to be so close to all of the amenities that La Manga Club offers.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Si bar restaurant and it became a firm favourite with the children. It offers a good menu with reasonable prices and special family discounts. Also big screen TV there so you can watch any major sporting events. Walkable from Los Naranjos like many others, also had a good breakfast at The Last Drop Inn, nice friendly staff.
Overall I was very impressed with my accommodation and La Manga Club itself. The standards everywhere are high and I will certainly return. Thinking of a boys golf break next time.

La Manga is a great resort for families, with lots of activities available for all ages. We stayed at Los Naranjos, next to the tennis centre, which was ideal for us. All neighbouring villas were families with children of similar ages, which meant the kids all played together in the central pool.
The swimming pool was a bit deep, 1.2 metres to 2 metres, though we also had access to the pool at the tennis centre which had toddler/childs pool.
The villa and all pools were very clean and kept to a good standard and the supermarkets had everything we could need and were very well stocked.
We walked everywhere as we were so central. It took around ten minutes to walk to Bellaluz square, though there are a few steep hills. Also walked to the cliff top at the private beach (took 20 minutes), but definitely need a car to reach the beach - dusty long, winding road with no pavement.
The prices for golf and tennis, as well as eating in most restaurants are on the high side, but we felt the standard was such it was worth it.
One recommendation would be to advertise better the activities. The online application did not detail everything. Definitely will go again, but next time will rent a car.

I stayed in Los Naranjos a few years ago but in the community villas that share the two pools. They are really nice but when I discovered you could rent one in Los Naranjos with its own private swimming pool I thought I would check it out.
There is only a row of about 8 to 10 villas with private pools which are right next to the community villas so they might be more difficult to book if you are stuck with certain dates of travel and I could only get a 3 bedroom property rather than the 4 bedrooms I had in the community villa. We managed anyway, just meant the children shared a room. The pool was lovely and set in a small private garden.
The villas with pools, Los Naranjos I, are next to the community ones, Los Naranjos II, so in terms of the location it is the same, walkable to everywhere. You do pay a premium for the pool but some of the larger villas with large private pools are just too expensive for my pocket and this just fitted the bill. Would definitely stretch to this again in the summer but in the quieter months would prefer to have use of the heated pool in the community villa.
Spent a lot of our time in La Finca again, definitely our favourite restaurant and two minutes from the villa. Our children really enjoyed the tennis academy, this was the first year we felt they were old enough to benefit from the excellent coaching. Again only five minutes from our villa so we could drop them off and return to relax around the pool. Be back again soon.
The property was everything we could have asked for, for a girly weekend, the pool was on our doorstep, the views were beautiful, the villa was clean, comfortable and spacious. When we phoned the agents they could have not been any more helpful. The only downside (and it didn't bother us at all but may have an impact on some people), is the walk from the centre is all uphill, the only time we had a problem with it was coming laden from the supermarket, but then there is always a taxi :). There is a smaller (more expensive ) supermarket nearby.
My family consists of 2 adults & 2 children aged 5 & 6yrs, & we have just spent a week in the resort of La Manga Club. Although we enjoy holidaying with our immediate family this is definitely a resort to be enjoyed in a groups as there are so many activity options to be enjoyed.
The Property we rented was exactly as described, from the directions, to key pick up instructions, & property description. We had a villa with shared pool facilities, which was never overcrowded, even being the school holidays.
The location of the villa (Los Naranjos) within the resort was perfect, having 2 younger children we were centrally based with all facilities we required, supermarket, our pools, additional pool at the tennis centre, perfect for a change of scenery, numerous bars & family restaurants, within a few hundred metres. We wouldn't hesitate on recommending the villa & resort to all our friends & family.
It was the perfect resort for us to introduce our children to new activities as well as have plenty of time to enjoy the pools & relax. We think it would be even more action packed as the children get older & can participate even more.
There are only two reasons I have given a a 4/5 rating & that would be that the resort is very commercialised with no element feeling very Spanish, maybe this is just the nature of La Manga Club & I do realise that you come here for an alternative holiday experience, but we did hire a car to travel around the La Manga area to balance this aspect. The second reason is that we felt that there were no clear signs/instructions regarding using/booking etc of the club facilities. We did find out ourselves but this could be easily rectified by simple signs around the complex.
Overall the shear beauty of La Manga Club is breath taking to be enjoyed by all, even the none golf fanatics amongst us. My only regret is that 1 week wasn't long enough!
We have been to La Manga Club about 5 times and always stay at Los Naranjos, the location is just so convenient for the shops and tennis centre. We usually do not hire a car so the area we stay in is important to us. The heated pool is quite nice. The villa was very nicely furnished and would ceratinly like to stay in this one again. many thanks for your help in sorting out our arrangements.
Really enjoyed our holiday and the whole process from the flight, taxi transfer to the club and the services on the Club were first class. We did find some of the on site restaurants a little pricey, but the restaurants in Los Belones were very good. We especially enjoyed Via Romana restaurant and ended up having two meals here. The villa was in a great location on the club and would certainly have another holiday at La Manga Club.
Many thanks for you and your colleagues for sorting out the right villa for our needs. With so much choice it was difficult to decide, but the villa at Los Naranjos was great. It was was in a good central position and we all enjoyed ourselves. It was great to rent somewhere that included all those little extras and the welcome breakfast pack which was unexpected came in very useful as we arrived very late. We will be in touch next year to book the same villa.
