I stayed in Los Naranjos a few years ago but in the community villas that share the two pools. They are really nice but when I discovered you could rent one in Los Naranjos with its own private swimming pool I thought I would check it out.
There is only a row of about 8 to 10 villas with private pools which are right next to the community villas so they might be more difficult to book if you are stuck with certain dates of travel and I could only get a 3 bedroom property rather than the 4 bedrooms I had in the community villa. We managed anyway, just meant the children shared a room. The pool was lovely and set in a small private garden.
The villas with pools, Los Naranjos I, are next to the community ones, Los Naranjos II, so in terms of the location it is the same, walkable to everywhere. You do pay a premium for the pool but some of the larger villas with large private pools are just too expensive for my pocket and this just fitted the bill. Would definitely stretch to this again in the summer but in the quieter months would prefer to have use of the heated pool in the community villa.
Spent a lot of our time in La Finca again, definitely our favourite restaurant and two minutes from the villa. Our children really enjoyed the tennis academy, this was the first year we felt they were old enough to benefit from the excellent coaching. Again only five minutes from our villa so we could drop them off and return to relax around the pool. Be back again soon.
Have just returned from a great week at Monte Claro villa at La Manga Club in Murcia. Having been to La Manga Club many times this is the first time we opted for a villa with a private swimming pool.
The location of the Monte Claro villa is perfect, only a few minutes walk to the supermarket, shops and the main restaurants. Whilst the villa is very close to the centre of things was very quiet and secluded and totally overlooked.
The villa felt so comfortable, a real home from home with some really nice touches. The villa has many patio areas and private sunbathing terraces, along with a really nice terrace around the pool area which has a BBQ, which we made good use of.
The pool was heated which is essential at this time of year. I know of many people who have rented villas with private pools which look great but they are unable to use them as they are just too cold, even when its warm outside the pools feel freezing.
We went back to our favourite Italian restaurant Luigis and they did not let us down. We also has a fantastic authentic Spanish meal at Maribels on the West Golf Course. I would recommend the cod baked in salt.
All in all another great holiday at La Manga Club and looking forward to returning next year and would certainly stay in this villa again.

We chose to be a little way out of the centre of La Manga Club as we wanted a tranquil setting and one where we could sit on our terrace all day and evening admiring the views. You do have to drive to most of the facilities available if you stay in Buena Vista but you can walk to the nearby deli cafe which serves food and has a small supermarket for essentials, Mr Chans, the Chinese restaurant and Luigis the onsite Italian restaurant. If you like Italian though drive out to the nearby village of Los Belones, 5 minutes away and try Via Romana, great food but you would be best to book.
The apartment was well equipped for our stay and once we had stocked up at the supermarket we were able to relax and chill out for our stay. Particularly like watching the Club light up a night with a glass of rioja to hand. Some of the Buena Vista properties have a small private pool and we are keen to try one of those next time.

We love this villa and have stayed here 3 times now and really look forward to coming back every year, feels like our second home. Our annual holiday is about chilling out by the pool, playing a bit of tennis and have some good food in different restaurants. The kids are well looked after with a whole range of things to keep them occupied on La Manga Club. The villa is very well maintained and stylishly decorated and is very well equipped which makes it feel like a home from home. It is a great location.
We love the outside dining area and make good use of the BBQ. We have tried most of the local restaurants which have become a little pricey due to the rate of exchange, hopefully this will change in the future. We do enjoy La Finca restaurant and Casa Victors both of which are walkable.
We feel that La Manga Club is a little oasis with excellent sports and leisure facilities, The golf courses at La Manga are second to none and it to great to relax in the sun with so much to do on your doorstep.
The Welcome Pack did indeed make us feel welcome. It was a great place for a relaxing holiday. The apartment was very well situated near the central square with community pool, supermarket and restaurants nearby. There was a good choice of restaurants, though none outstandingly special and veggie options were limited.
Lovely apartment, setting perfect. I would recommend the apartment to a friend. We particularly liked La Barra restaurant - good value for money.
Hello everyone at La Manga holiday's, I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing us with an amazing holiday - it was more successful than I could possibly have wished for. I would just like to say a special thanks to the chap who recommended Bellaluz over the other places we were looking at - it was perfect for us with our little one. The food at La Finca, El Bistro and La Barra was magnificent - the staff at El Bistro were particularly wonderful. The Kids Club was also an amazing success and I would recommend it to any frazzled parent looking for a little down time. We are already thinking about next year and hopefully staying for a couple of weeks. The only little thing was that the cabbie on the way there didn't seem to know where he was going and I'd love a ground floor apartment next time! Thanks once again for everything - it was truly amazing.
The apartment was well located for the tennis facility and some decent eateries. The design and standard of accommodation were fine. Everything was comfortable. Our stay was perhaps too short and the golf courses were splendid, especially the tricky and unusual West Course. We would go again to La Manga.

5- All resturants i tried i loved. The golf is great.
I had a chance of one week at the la manga club complex. The complex is slightly hilly but my wife and i are nearly sixty and found the inclines easy enough.the complex was very clean and the gardens and pool areas were well looked after ,the villa that we were allocated was clean and fresh and well maintained with good cooking facilitys but we only used the kitchen for breakfast.
The resturants in the complex were of a high standard and the prices were fair as were the bars,the pool bar that we used was excellent,there was also a good shop on the property which had lovely fresh bread in the morning ,and the shop always had a great selection of fresh fruit.
Our grand kids were 14 and 10 when we went and they loved it.they loved the main pool during the day and there was a games room for them at night.all in all a lovely relaxing week in the sun in a lovely complex
