We have tried the new sushi bar in Los Belones and had a really enjoyable evening.
We often venture off of La Manga Club just for a change of scene and like to try anything that has opened in Los Belones since our last visit. We did try to eat there one evening but when we arrived it was closed so do check their opening days and times.
We thought we would try and get there again and were pleased we did. The food was very good indeed and reasonably priced so we are glad we persevered and would certainly return again.
We always make a trip to Via Romana in Los Belones when we stay at La Manga Club. The fresh pasta and pizza is fantastic and the specials board always has something to tempt us.
On our last trip I noticed several people around me enjoying a piece of tenderloin and when our friends who live local in Cartagena joined us they also ordered it recommending it as the best steak they had ever had. What could we do but try it and it did not disappoint.
My husband who is more of a steak lover than me said it was delicious probably only second to steak he had on a cruise ship once a while ago. So if you think Via Romana can only come up trumps with your Italian favourites think again and give the tenderloin a try.
Whenever we visit La Manga Club we always head off to the Sunday market at Cabo de Palos and then after for a Sunday lunch along the harbour.
It is always warm and sunny and there is nothing nicer than sitting outside waiting for our Paella mixta to appear. Our last visit was to the Miramar restaurant which is on the corner of the harbour and has been established since the 1970's. Cabo de Palos harbour was buzzing as there was a local sailing event taking place involving the local children.
Our food was excellent as usual with delicious garlic prawns to start followed by our paella. The staff at the Miramar are very attentive and we could not fault the service. Please give it a try when you are next at La Manga Club, a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
It was a pleasure to return to Casa Lee in Los Belones, the long established Chinese restaurant.
It was along time since we had first visited and then discovered it has moved to the new Pyramid building as you enter Los Belones itself, opposite where the Bodega used to be.
We usually go to The Run but thought we should revisit Casa Lee for a change. The food was excellent, very fresh and tasty and the staff very welcoming and attentive. We would certainly visit again when we are next at La Manga Club and wish them well in their new home.
The Pyramid square is now full once again with restaurants, great to see them all occupied again.
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.
We always head into Los Belones for a few meals when we are staying at La Manga Club. Really pleased to see several new places open since our last visit.
Thought we would try Pablo Guardiolas, it is where the bodega used to be and so we popped in for a coffee in the morning to have a sneaky look at the menu which is typically Spanish. They have made it very attractive inside and we decided to book for 8 pm.
It was a Wednesday evening in January and it was good to see quite a few tables occupied. We had salad and soup to start followed by lamb and sea bass. All was very good indeed. My sea bass came with spinach but a few potatoes with it would have been good. The wine list is good and all reasonably priced. We decided to pass on the desserts but would certainly return.
The windmills of Los Molinos give this community of white wash Spanish villas a very pretty appearance and they have a great home from home feel about them.
We have chosen to stay in Los Molinos on our last three trips and our children love the pool area and poolside snack bar. We would recommend you check the location of your villa if you have young or elderly in your family as some have steep steps to get to the villa. Of course these ones have the best views from there terraces and you should not dismiss them just bear it in mind if you have buggy etc to contend with.
We have just booked for next year and got our repeat client discount. Don't miss out!
Nothing but praise for our stay in the Monte Claro villa at La Manga Club. The standard of cleanliness of the villa on arrival was great and we arranged some extra housekeeping during our stay, the local staff were very polite and accommodating and the cost was reasonable.
The pool area was a reasonable size and sufficient for our party and more than anything everyone was delighted to be within close proximity of a supermarket and some cafes and restaurants. The aim of our vacation this year was to meet up with our family who had travelled from around the world and share quality time in a comfortable villa in the sun. The possibility of fitting in a game of golf or tennis was appealing and we did manage to do both, again without driving a distance, we could walk to both.
We had many good meals out and followed the advice of others who recommended several places on the resort to try, all were good. We had a great family vacation and thank all those who were involved in the organisation of our trip.
We have been going to The Run restaurant since it opened. We have always found the food to be good and the staff pleasant.
Lots of locals in there too which is always a good sign. We love the set meal menus, we do not have to think too much about what to choose, someone has put together great options for us.
We would like to recommend another restaurant on the La Manga Strip which we have been to a few times, San Remo.
The first time we went it was January and it was very quiet, to be expected I suppose. We had the speciality of the house of suckling pig.
When we returned in the summer it was lovely to be able to sit outside and enjoy a really nice lunch. The staff are very pleasant. It is tucked away a little bit so just ask someone before you set off.
