Nothing is high rise at La Manga Club and the Las Palmeras apartments are just two storeys and all on one level inside with good access and parking. We were delighted with our apartment and it was a good home from home for our weeks stay. The Las Palmeras pool area is just a minute away and is great for the amount of apartments there.
We could walk everywhere and we were only a 5 minute walk to the tennis centre and the communal swimming pool which anyone can use.
Our children were very keen to join in the tennis courses that run all the time so we enrolled them before we arrived as we were advised to do so by our agent. It is definitely worth prebooking otherwise it is possible they will be full in the popular school holiday weeks. They really enjoyed themselves, had fun, made lots of friends and had a good introduction to the game of tennis. The coaches were very professional and very used to dealing with boisterous youngsters.
We look forward to returning later this year and have selected Las Palmeras again for our stay.
We were very happy with our choice of apartment this year. We chose a 2 bedroom Las Palmeras apartment which sits behind the large development of Hacienda del Golf. We had 2 bathrooms and with only about 30 apartments of only 2 storeys high we really liked the fact that Las Palmeras did not feel too busy around the pool or amongst the villas themselves. Being behind Hacienda also meant that we were a way back from the main road which we liked.
Very well kitted out the Las Palmeras apartment had everything we needed and was in good order throughout. The people we dealt with on site were great and when we needed their help with sorting out a broken kettle they were there replacing it within a couple of hours.
Within a few minutes you can walk to the tennis centre and lots of the shops, restaurants and cafes. My children love Uncle Sams, the American style diner, I suppose the thought of not having a burger for 2 weeks is a bit too much for them to cope with so we did go there a couple of times. Quite a fun place and the food is what you would expect with some good ribs and steak. If you are looking for a really super restaurant for a special treat then do try the Amapola. Apparently the chef is new and the menu is constantly changing so if you can arrange a babysitter then worth a visit.
We are back to reality now after spending a great fortnight in La Manga Club. The kids really enjoyed all the activities especially the football academy which they talked me into booking for them for both of the weeks we were there. The courses are not particularly cheap but they are so well organised and professionally run so I was happy to let them join in for both weeks.
We have stayed in several of the different apartment blocks at La Manga but this time chose Las Palmeras which is just behind the Hacienda villas. They are in a good spot in the Club so the boys could walk off to the football pitches on their own. We had a two bedroom two bathroom Las Palmeras apartment with a nice terrace. They are only two storeys high and we had a nice top floor apartment on the front row. The pool area was very well kept, clean and tidy.
Spent a lovely evening in the La Finca restaurant celebrating my birthday, thank you everyone there for a great meal.
See you again next year!
Thank you for all your help is arranging a super holiday, everything worked like clock work. The weather was great although a little windy. The Las Palmeras apartment worked really well for us and it was very well equipped in a great spot. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.
What a beautiful apartment you have here, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The apartment has all anyone could need plus the little home from home extras which makes self catering abroad so much easier. The welcome pack was a surprise as we forget that this was included. The information in the apartment was very useful and we did follow up on a couple of your restaurant reservations including la Finca and Canellas which were both great. Las Palmeras in an excellent base for anyone staying on La Manga Club. Many thanks we will definitely return on a future holiday.
