Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort is a gated community with excellent security. The apartment is on the ground floor apartment with a spacious cool terrace, facing the large pool with great views. Being a ground floor apartment allows direct access to the pool area from the terrace, with the pool area surrounded by a gated fence.
The accommodation consists of two bedrooms, one double and one twin, with a double sofa bed in the lounge, dining area, bathroom, kitchen and large terrace and garden. The terrace remains shaded all day long, which during the long, hot summer days is a welcome relief from the heat. It also helps to keep the apartment relatively cool. The apartment is comfortable for 4 , 5 or 6 people when utilizing the sofa bed in the lounge or the extra bed in the twin bedroom . Sitting on the terrace or in the garden affords lovely views over the 12th and 13th holes of the golf course, the local fields and to the hills in the distance. It is a quiet and very relaxing environment in which to drink a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.
Although we do not play golf, the Jack Nicklaus designed course is reported to be one of the best in the area. We understand that reduced green fees are available for guests. There is also a driving range and buggies available to hire. However, the golf course is private and guests are not permitted access to the course or to use the paths unless playing a round.
The Hacienda has 2 restaurants, including a take away Italian with al fresco dining. There is also a bar in the Hacienda with a further bar in the gardens, with tables and chairs outside. There are regular nightly activities at the bar during the summer season. There is also a reasonably priced and well stocked supermarket in the Hacienda. The resort has a total of 18 pools and guests can use any pool.
There are several children's playgrounds in the resort as well as a sports area with tennis and football courts and open air gym.
The apartment is looked after by Andy Harvey, who lives onsite. A Meet and Greet service is available where guests will be met at the Gate House on arrival, the keys will be handed over and guests will be shown around the resort and apartment and how to use the facilities. Welcome Packs for those who are arriving late are also available. The costs of both services are available on application. A cleaning service at a cost of Euro 80 is mandatory and is payable directly to Andy prior to departure. Guests should provide full travel details to be passed on to Andy.
The nearest airport is Murcia/san Javier about 20 minutes drive or Alicante International Airport, which is about 1 hour away. Car hire is available at both airports and is recommended, although Andy offers a collection service if required. For the best deals shop around and advance booking is recommended. The nearest railway station is Balsicas, about 8km away.
This is a much loved family apartment and the owners would be grateful if you could treat it, our neighbours and the resort with respect. We do not allow pets and smoking is permitted on the terrace and garden only. Babies and young children must wear suitable swimming nappies when using the pool as any unfortunate 'accidents' results in the pool being closed for several days whilst it is cleaned!!
The Murcia area is located in the south east corner of Spain, with the Costa Blanca to the north and Costa Almeria to the south. It boasts many white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, deserted coves and a reported 320 days of sunshine a year. The World health authority has declared the Murcia province the cleanest in Spain, with the least industrial pollution. For nature lovers, there is the stunning Sierra Espuna National Park and the Sierra de Carroscoy mountain range – both a paradise for walkers and climbers. Balneario de Archena for health treatments can be found on the banks of the river Segura. The centre has sources of rich mineral water with temperature of 52 °c, which is used in the treatment of respiratory problems and skin and rheumatic diseases. The salt-rich waters of the Balneario de Fortuna spring, with a temperature of 53 °c, is apparently particularly effective for the treatment of asthma, rheumatism, colds and allergies and gynecological disorders! In the past the baths were used by the Moors and Romans and are housed in modern facilities. There are a few hotels with direct access to the spa, an outdoor pool with hot spring water, ideal for cold winter mornings. Lo Pagán, a village two kilometers from San Pedro del Pinatar, has some of the best open-air mud baths in Europe. The waters of the Mar Menor are calm, warm and shallow which make them ideal for young children.
A car is strongly recommended for getting around the local area. The roads are generally very good with several dual carriageways ensuring rapid journeys. There is also a bus service that runs between the various Polaris World golf resorts and timings can be checked at the Hacienda or Security Post.
