We were recommended to stay in the Monte Verde apartments by friends who knew that we did not like being in the centre of things and preferred the quieter areas.
It was a good recommendation as the quality of the apartments are equal to Los Olivos but the community is generally quieter due to it being on the outskirts of La Manga Club. We had a three bedroom apartment which had two bathrooms and the views were fabulous from our generous terrace.
We also had the use of an indoor heated pool plus the outdoor one but that was a little chilly given the time of year and not really comfortable to use.
Despite being on the outskirts we could walk to our tennis lessons in ten plus minutes and the supermarket in Bellaluz square was also walkable so we hardly used the hire car. I suppose in general a car is useful if you stay at Monte Verde, just depends on how energetic you are.
We would like to return and next time plan to take part in the five day tennis course.
We had a good holiday this summer in the Monte Verde apartment I had chosen on the internet. The apartments at Monte Verde are really nice and we loved the indoor pool which we used for an early morning swim every day. The outdoor pool space was also good. The apartment itself was very spacious and the views from our terrace were really nice. We sat out in the evenings and watched the twinkly lights in the distance.
Although Monte Verde is on the outskirts of the La Manga Club we could walk to the Bellaluz square for our fresh bread and often went for coffee, lunch and an occasional dinner. We have not been to La Manga Club for a few years so very pleased to see our favourite restaurant is still there, El Bistro. Such a good menu and good value.
Hopefully we will return again.
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 enjoyed our stay very much and very grateful for your help in making our holiday so enjoyable. I tried to contact the management company on Saturday when we left to confirm key left in safety box outside front door and safe key left on top of safe as he requested. Our sincere thanks for all your help and please keep us in mind for something similar next year.
