Overview

A great holiday starts with great accommodation (and fantastic weather!).

This stylish apartment stands out because it has been furnished and decorated to a high standard and offers luxury accommodation for 4 people. Redecorated and updated in 2019 with new furniture, fridge freezer and microwave.

Fully air-conditioned throughout including both bedrooms (a must), the apartment is equipped with a 40" HD Smart TV with all UK channels, and FREE wireless internet access.

The lounge offers comfortable seating, and there is a formal dining table that seats 4 people in style. The sliding patio doors lead from the lounge onto a large covered terrace which has wonderful views of the 14th hole, the orange groves, and the mountains beyond. The terrace is west facing and captures the afternoon and evening sun. It’s the perfect place to eat or relax with a drink and enjoy the spectacular sunsets for which this region is renowned.

You’ll be impressed with the fully equipped and spacious kitchen. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, large fridge freezer, microwave oven, ceramic hob and electric oven and grill with extractor fan. There is also a toaster, kettle, coffee maker, electric juice press and plenty of crockery, cutlery and pots and pans. There is even a Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother, so if you are a convert please bring some pods.

The bathroom offers a bath with shower over, wash-handbasin and toilet. The gas combi-boiler ensures instant, unlimited hot water. Towels are provided.

Both bedrooms open onto a large balcony so you can enjoy the morning sun, and they each have built-in wardrobes with plenty of storage. You’ll also find hair driers and hair straighteners. The bedrooms can be configured to either provide comfortable twin 3ft singles in each room or super king doubles.

There is a fantastic communal pool right next to the apartment block and you can enjoy tempting views of it from the balcony terrace. We provide 4 luxury sun beds, a parasol (a must in the summer,) and beach towels.

Guests at our apartment can also use any of the other beautiful pools dotted around the resort - some have separate children's pools and some have jacuzzis. There are also several children's play areas one of which is close to the apartment. There is an outdoor gym, 2 tennis hard courts, 2 padel tennis courts, 2 boules pitches and a multi-sports area just a stone’s throw from the apartment. You’ll find a range of sports equipment (tennis racquets and balls, boules etc) in the apartment. We also have 2 adult bicycles available for hire for £50 per week for the pair. This include bike locks and helmets.

If have a large family or group of friends, we have another apartment just 1 floor below in the same block (property ref 51674).

You can park in your designated bay (1815) in the underground car park and access the lift from here which takes you right to the apartment door.

Hacienda Riquelme is a well established and delightful resort with tree lined roads and amazing flower beds and shrubs. It’s a great place for either a family holiday or a relaxing break. This gated community provides a safe and attractive environment for your holiday. The resort centre is built around the original Hacienda and now houses the bar and restaurant, supermarket and Pro Shop. In the high season, the magnificent courtyard opens up to provide an additional al-fresco Italian restaurant serving homemade pastas and delicious Pizzas. You can even order them to take away. In addition, in July and August the Paloma Bar which is adjacent to the 9th green, offers a range of cocktails and is a wonderful place to unwind.

The 18 hole championship Jack Nicklaus golf course is a wonderful test of golf. However, despite the fantastic golf course and resulting views from the apartment, most people come here for the peace and tranquillity the resort offers out of season, or the fantastic weather and pools in high season. There is something here for everyone as well as many beautiful unspoilt beaches and lots of places to explore including the ancient cities of Murcia and Cartagena, with the recently discovered Roman amphitheatre.
If you enjoy your wine, the region of Jumilla and Yecla are just a little further on from Murcia. You can visit the Bodegas and enjoy their wares and some even offer lunch.

There's lots of choice of what to do in the Costa Calida - and even a choice of which Sea to go to! You can choose between the Mediterranean Sea, & the lesser known Mar Menor (little sea). The Med beaches include some fabulous white sand walks that the locals favour, while the Mar Menor is an inland sea/salt water lake separated from the Mediterranean by La Manga (the sleeve) del Mar Menor; otherwise known as the La Manga strip.

It is favoured amongst families with small children due to its warm, shallow & salty waters (salt makes you float more easily). The area is all extremely family friendly and there are many little bars and cafes to help the holiday experience!

Some of our favourite local places: Cartagena (there are some idyllic hidden beaches with restaurants for a memorable lunch or two); Playa Honda, where the beaches are quiet, safe and have wonderful sand; San Pedro; San Javier (jump on the boat across the Mar Menor to La Manga for lunch and a swim) and even the beaches at Los Alcazares can be wonderful and enjoy the a long lazy promenade on the boardwalk. Try Restaurant La Encarnacion and be sure to have a look at its amazing courtyard. You can hire bicycles, water sport equipment and go diving or sea fishing.

For golfers there are plenty of other courses nearby to enjoy, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Firstly, this is one of the best private holiday lets we have ever stayed in. It’s an immaculate, spotless property, fully equipped with spacious balconies. The main balcony was our primary living space for the week, with it’s dining table and chairs used for all meals. The balconies sofa and chairs were perfect for watching the evening sun set over the mountains with drink in hand!

The shared swimming pool is not done justice by the photographs, it’s of quite a large size and ideal for swimmers wanting to do decent lengths. It’s also perfect for kids as it’s shallow throughout. There was very few people using it making it feel very exclusive.

The golf course site is very large and secure, great for our morning runs. We used the restaurant once and the food was good, although for the area, quite expensive. The little cocktail bar over looking the main lake
was nice for an evening drink. Although, be warned, if you have a Long Island Ice Tea, make sure it’s only the one otherwise the walk back will be very challenging!

We definitely recommend Murcia for a day trip, lovely historical town and good value restaurants. On the coast, Cartagena is a real eye opener, great for military history from Arabic fort structures to World War Two defences. The Roman amphitheater is a must see, nestled in the town and in good preserved condition. The tapas bars and restaurants were brilliant value, with beautifully presented food.

We drove to the mountain area near Murcia one day, mainly around the Cresta del Gallo. That’s well worth walking to its top peaks, with amazing views in all directions. The walking trails along the shady wooded slopes are a good escape from the sun too.

Overall a great apartment, lovely pool and good site made it an ideal base for exploring an interesting part of Spain that has been overlooked by many. Give it a go!

Sam and Mike, Cambridge.

Thoroughly recommend the apartment, we enjoyed our stay and all that the apartment and the facilities offered. The apartment is tastefully decorated throughout and the kitchen well equipped. The views and surroundings were quite impressive with the spectacular sunsets providing a reason for that final glass of wine on the balcony at the close of the day. The site provides a comfort of security with controlled access and peace of mind. We do hope to return again in the future.

The resort is lovely, great little supermarket on site and a great restaurant aswell. Brilliant location to the airport and beaches. The pool was great for our family.

We did not want to leave. Thank you

Had another fantastic holiday here. The views from the balcony are amazing, and we spent many hours sat there enjoying the sun. The apartment is very highly equipped, and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We didn't lack anything that we needed, and really couldn't fault anything. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Lovely apartment with great views - golf really enjoyable but challenging rough & bunkers. Swimming pool was excellent with comfortable loungers provided. Nice beach areas within 30 minutes of apartment. Really appreciated the facilities at the apartment - it made for a most relaxing break. Would like to return in the future.

Fantastic Apartment

Sally and Brent Aug 2018

We had a great holiday staying at Hacienda Riquelme Golf Course, Sucina- it's a lovely complex, which is very well maintained. Loved the on-site restaurants and well stocked shop. There are many good apartments at Hacienda, but this one we agree definitely goes the extra mile, it is the small extras that make all the difference. It is very modern/spacious, well equipped with extras you always need e.g. hair dryer, iron/board, washing machine, dish washer, kitchen utilities, pool towels etc. The pool is right below the apartment so if you have children you can see them all the time from the balcony and it was also fantastic having the private sunbeds available at the pool just for your use. We particularly enjoyed having meals and drinks on the balconies, you get a lovely breeze throughout the apartment with the doors open, and it was so relaxing as the furniture was very plush and the sunsets incredible. Lydia was very helpful throughout the whole process from the initial booking to general enquiries. Anyone thinking about booking this apartment should go ahead, it's one of the nicest we've stayed at!! We would definitely recommend. Just make sure you have a car so you can explore the surrounding areas, so much to see and do. Thanks Sally & Brent

We have stayed at Hacienda Requielme a few times and really love the resort, Lydia's apartment just makes it even better! There are many good apartments At Hacienda, but this one goes the extra mile, it is the small extras that make all the difference. The kitchen is well stocked and exceptionally clean, finding all the things you have at home is great, tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar , the list goes on ! The stand out feature though is the balcony, the evening sunsets are amazing and best enjoyed sitting in the wonderfully comfortable rattan chairs with a glass of wine. Thanks Lydia for a fantastic week, we will be back!
