Thank you for recommending the Monte Claro villa to us, it did not disappoint.
The children could take themselves off to the tennis centre and football course and enjoyed a little freedom from our apron strings. When we asked them to go the supermarket each morning to buy fresh bread and milk there was never any arguments as our villa in Monte Claro was close to the centre that had the large supermarket and so again we felt comfortable to let them go. We had no fear of letting them explore on their own of course laying down some strict ground rules regarding time and boundaries. The resort itself is secure and has a nice feel of a community.
Monte Claro villas are in a nice residential road and although we were right in the centre of things the area was quiet and private. Very spacious and with ample bathrooms we gave the en-suite bedroom / bathroom to my parents. The garden area was also lovely and we could just sit and enjoy the sun. The villa had everything we needed for our holiday and was a real home from home. We hope to return again next year.
Having stayed in the Monte Claro townhouses before I knew that the location would suit us well and a villa with private pool located in the same road would be a nice change and treat for us all.
The villa was well equipped with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a downstairs loo and was spacious in all the living areas. I particularly liked the private garden and pool area and our contact on site was really helpful when we arrived, making sure we were fully acquainted with the villa and surrounding area. Of course we knew our way around but it was good to know she was there to help if we needed it. Lounging around our own pool was definitely worth the extra cost.
We spent several evenings in our favourite restaurant which has been there for many years, Casa Victors. During the summer months they hold a really good outdoor BBQ and their pasta dishes are great. It is a family run place and you always get a warm welcome and you are sure to find something you like on the menu.
We did discover this year that there is a Go Karting track not more than five minutes drive from La Manga Club, it is not Formula 1 but it is a lot of fun. It is on the way to Cabo de Palos which is a really nice traditional Spanish fishing village and also worth a visit to the Sunday market held there each week. The Miramar restaurant aslo in Cabo de Palos is worth a visit for some local Spanish cuisines and excellent fish dishes on the menu.
Great holiday had by all and I am sure we will back again next year.
