We have been to Los Olivos before but not had the experience of a penthouse apartment. So for a change we decided to book one as I really wanted some sunshine and had been told that with the second rear terrace we would have sun all day long.
That was absolutely true and as I intended to spend most of my time on a sun lounger it was a real bonus. Apart from venturing to the indoor pool and my favourite restaurants I did not leave my terrace. It was good to see some new places to eat at La Manga Club and some in the nearby village, Los Belones.
It was a great short break and we just enjoyed the luxury of our Los Olivos apartment, blue skies and good food, can not really ask for more.
Having read so much about the Los Olivos properties at La Manga Club I was tempted to book one for a change and as it was a special birthday to treat myself to a top floor penthouse apartment.
I was really pleased when I arrived to discover that it was as spacious as described and the views fabulous, as promised. You get great views from all of the apartments but I did enjoy being on the top floor because we had two terraces, front and back, so you will get the sun all day long.
The tennis courts are just a stones throw away and you can walk to either of the supermarkets with ease.
Only negative I would say is that they are not suitable for those with young children. The stairs up to the apartment and the stairs inside to the second terrace would not be good to have to contend with. Definitely opt for a ground or middle floor if you have little ones.
The thought of staying in a penthouse apartment was very appealing and something different from our usual choice of holiday accommodation. We chose to go and try La Manga Club and a Monte Verde penthouse apartment as they looked spacious and with nice large terraces for eating and cooking outside. We have been to other resorts in the same area in Spain.
We were not disappointed when we arrived and the people who look after the property were very welcoming and pointed us in the right direction for shopping and eating out. We enjoyed walking around La Manga Club and have to say everywhere was very well maintained. We managed a round of golf which was a little expensive but very enjoyable.
Unfortunately I had to visit one of the pharmacies, I understand there are two, during my stay and must say how fantastic the staff were. They could not have been more helpful and spoke excellent English. I went to the one opposite the petrol station. I think it is very reassuring to know that such a good service is on site and available.
Thank you for a great holiday.
La Manga is a very well-maintained resort with a range of amenities and activities to suit all ages. Its in a convenenient location, easily accessible from the airport and from the main shopping town of Murcia. The resort is a mix of privately-owned and corporately owned complexes with their own, swimming pools, with some even having their own poolside bar and restaurant.
Within some of these complexes are further shops and restaurants, with even more available in the purpose built areas, and even access to its own private beach. There is so much available, that there is no need to even go off-site.
For the sporting enthusiastic, there are tennis academies, football academies and championship golf courses, suitable for all ages and abilities. For those wanting a little more in the way of pampering and relaxation, there are also fantastic spa and beauty facilities as well as high-quality retail outlets. The owners pay a management service agency to maintain their properties, and they're certainly done to a very high standard. Accommodation is flexible enough for couples, small families and larger gatherings and ranges from flats in lively communities to a more secluded villa. All in all, having visited La Manga several times, I would not hesitate to recommend it. My favourite community is the Los Olivos area, which has great accommodation, 3 swimming pools and just a few minutes walk from the tennis centre.

We had a fantastic holiday in La Manga in July. Thank you. We would like to return next year and would appreciate some prices. We will probably be looking at mid july for 10 or 14 days.. But may need to come in August so if we could have a few prices please. We loved Los Olivos on the upper level but also interested in the row in front. Can you help please
We have stayed in Los Olivos apartments many times and we love them. The design of the apartments is superb, the view spectacular, and the central location is fantastic. Really enjoyed meals at Asia, La Finca, and Canela. Had a great week.
We had the 3 bedroom penthouse which was perfectly kitted out with everything you could need. Air conditioning was brill and the size of the terrace and living accomodation was superb. A bonus to have sky TV and a short walk to the pools and courts. We will definitely be back!
property was good and accurately described although the wardrobe handle in the master bedroom was broken. We would recommend it, only El Bistro and Asia Restaurants were worth visiting more than once
The property was ideally located, clean and maintained. I would certainly recommend the apartment and overall had a great vacation.
This is the third time we have stayed in Los Olivos and we selected a penthouse this year. We had a great holiday as usual and the apartment was fantastic, but not 100% sure the penthouses are worth the extra cost. It was great to have the the use of the extra terrace but we only used it once during the the whole week. Would definately recommend Los Olivos and La Manga Club to all - the location and views are the best and the large terraces are special.
