It features over five hectares of sophisticated bunkers that separate the holes, creating strategic points, which provided added value to the shots. Plus, a denser grass was planted around the bunkers, creating the optimum wind shot effect.

Around the course you will find all kinds of services to practice golf and improve it: including the clubhouse, a pro-shop, driving range and golf school.

The region of Murcia is situated on the Costa Calida (which translates to The Warm Coast) between Costa Blanca and Costa de Almeria. The region is easily accessible via Alicante airport (about 45 minutes) and Murcia-San Javier airport (about 15 minutes). Getting around in the region is easy by car as the area has a modern road network connecting all the major towns.
During the summer months the weather can get very hot yet the winters are mild with the annual temperature averaging around 21’C. The province of Murcia is irrigated by the Rivers Segura, Murdo and Sangonera - which make ideal conditions for the many orchards of citrus fruit. In contrast the area also has expanses of dry, arid land where olives and vines thrive, then turning to desert-like land covered in cacti and palms.
The province has 170km of coastline with wonderful beaches at La Manga and Aguilas, in addition to the largest salt-water lagoon in Europe - the Mar Menor. The historical city of Cartagena has a large port with lively bars and restaurants and can offer some excellent shopping.
The city of Murcia is described as one of the most beautiful and historic in the country. The city stands on the banks of the river and enjoys all year round sunshine. It has the highest temperatures in the region. There is a great deal of Moorish influence in the city, not least of all the impressive city walls. After the re-conquest, the 20 mosques in the city were turned into churches. The Cathedral is the most highly prized building in the city. Bishop Pedrosa laid the first foundation stone in 1388 but it took four centuries to complete.
Among the other splendid buildings to see is the Bishop’s Palace located near the Cathedral. Dated 1748 it has two wonderful facades. The Convent Church of Santa Ana is 18th century and is the third church to be built on this site, the original being 1490. Here you can try the freshly baked cakes, made by the nuns and served through a revolving hatch. The Church of San Miguel is an 18th century church, which has wonderful coloured altar-pieces. The Almudi dates from 1602 and houses the art centre and city archives.
In all, Murcia has everything to offer the visitor and you can almost certainly guarantee that no matter what time of year you visit, you will be wrapped up in some kind of fiesta or celebration. You will find the people pleasant and friendly towards tourists.

We spent a lovely two weeks at this pleasant apartment which we incorporated into a 24 day road trip down through France into Spain. Whilst the complex was not very full due to the economic down turn, the actual place was well kept and we felt very secure. The communal pool was just fine and whilst the local Spar supermarket was a bit pricy, the warm fresh bread each morning more than made up of that little bit more you will spend there.
The access routes to and from the complex are very good which allowed us to explore the local area extensively and beyond. On the whole we had a really nice stay and would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to others.
Despite some cleanliness issues on arrival (which the owners Peter and Andrea have more than adequately dealt with) we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at ELLBEN. Having been on La Torre earlier in the year and at the far end of the complex not having to drive to the supermarket or town centre is a godsend - a five to 10 minute stroll - depending on time of day. Not all the restaurants are open and its advisable to book in advance.
The apartment is fully equipped with everything you might need for a holiday stay and the location near the swimming pool allows you to have either company and chatting around the pool or have the solitude and privacy of the terrace and garden area.
We stayed during July and the sun starts to "hit" your garden around 11:00 (you can always go outside your own garden before this) and you then have the sun all the way through until it sets - around 20:50 while we were there - a pleasant time of day to be having a BBQ and a long drink.
The nearest town of Roldan offers a couple of bars and restaurants which are reasonably priced, but the beaches and Mar Menor are the pièce de résistance - only 15 minutes drive and whilst very busy its a great place to spend the day there are some excellent bars and restaurants along the coast line.
Would we go again.....YES most definitely!!
Well we keep coming back and absolutely love the apartment, the location and the site. The owners have been wonderful and always reply to our questions. If you want to relax and enjoy some special family time and meet some new people, but not too many, this is the place to go. Love it!!!
We have just returned from a lovely week here with our 2 young children. The appartment is clean and well kitted out for a family of 4 ( lots of beach towels, cool box for picnics, childrens cutlery etc). The appartment is right next to a childrens pool which was the highlight of their holiday (although the water was extremely cold they enjoyed putting their feet in and it has lots of very shallow parts). We were a 10 min walk from the centre of the resort and ate there most nights. We went in October and there were only a few restaurants open but they were all child friendly. We hope to come back again next year because it was such an easy and relaxing holiday. However, we didnt realise that you have to pay €50 extra on departure for cleaning so although it was still very reasonably priced it wasnt the bargin we thought.
This is the 2nd year we have stayed and will be back - need we say any more. Love the proximity to the pool and the apartment is light airy and beautifully furnished!
