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.
We had a fantastic break in Monte Verde at La Manga Club. – everything was perfect for our stay – the apartment was greta as usual and the weather was just right. We all felt this was one of the most relaxing holidays we had had for years. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace enjoying the splendid view of the Mar Menor. We did explore the local area and went to Cartagena and Cabo and enjoyed a beautiful meal at the marina at Cabo de Palos. We also had a lovely meal at La Finca. Thank you for your help we hope to return to Monte Verde again.
Overall we were delighted with our recent visit to La Manga Club. We have been 5 times before but never stayed at Monte Verde. Whilst it is more remote than other accomodation we have stayed in the penthouse apartment was excellent and the location provided breath taking views - well worth the extra few minutes travel time from the main restaurants, shops etc. We would love to go back. P.S: One slight negative was our experience at Unce Sam's Pizza Cafe opposte the petrol station. We were not made aware that the pizzas were actually made up at Las Lomas and so had to wait for about 45 minutes for a basic pizza. Customers need to be made aware of this! We would have certainly taken the extra time to travel up to Las Lomas and eat in the restaurant.
