La Manga Club, Where Luxury Accommodation, Golf, Spa, Tennis And Sports Combine

One of the worlds great resorts, La Manga Club Resort is located a few kilometres outside of Los Belones in the Murcia region of Spain. This famous resort conceived in the 60’s became a leader in Golf and Spa resort property development. Over 3000 homes are located on the resort. Development continues today although not at the pace of the 70’s and 80’s.

The bedrock of the resort is its three PGA championship standard golf courses. It has a five star hotel complex and many private Villas and Apartments are available to rent. There is something for everyone’s budget. The golf courses designed by the likes of Robert Putman and Arnold Palmer have been played by many of the great golfers. Because of their maturity and the loving care bestowed on them by the groundsmen, they are all in superb condition.

The resort fills the bottom of a valley with beautiful views of the golf courses, landscaped low-rise property developments and in the distance no more than 5km away is the Mar Menor. The Mar Menor is a land locked salt water lagoon 24 km long. This lagoon no more than 7m deep is a paradise for water sport lovers and is mostly surrounded by sandy beaches. On the far side of the lagoon is the famous “La Manga strip”. The strip only 100m wide in places has on one side the Mar Menor and on the other side the open waters of the Mediterranean.

Not only famous for its golf La Manga Club also has impressive tennis coaching and playing facilities. Over 30 courts including ATP standard ones make the resort a popular destination for tennis enthusiasts.

National, Premier League and other top football teams from all over Europe use the specialist football training facilities regularly. Many well known footballers have bought property on the resort, so you never know who you might bump into whilst having dinner or a drink.

For those looking for something more relaxing and less sporty the club has impressive Spa facilities. Beautifully presented and professionally staffed many treatments and activities are available to help you unwind, relax, detox and look after yourself.

Where to eat and drink

There are many restaurants, cafes and bars on the resort offering everything from fast food to fine dining. For the sports enthusiast there are Sport themed bars with live games and events and you can always spend a few relaxing moments at the piano bar in the Hotel. The local area has many restaurants too.

How to get there

Driving is easy as there are motorway routes from the North, South and West of Spain. Cartagena is the closest major train station. Most people arriving by air will fly to Murcia San Javier airport (MJV). This is only 20 minutes drive away up the motorway. Alternatively there is Alicante El Altet airport (ALC). This is about an hour away by car again by motorway. Soon there will also be the option of the new Corvera airport which from a journey time point of view will be somewhere in between.

At the airport you can catch a shuttle bus transfer, arrange a taxi or of course rent a car. Personally I would suggest renting a car. La Manga Club is large and to get around you will spend a lot of money on taxis and waste time waiting or walking. Your own car will solve this problem. There are many things to do in the local area so the car is useful for that too.

You can book car rental online and of course direct. That can often be more expensive especially if you wait until you arrive. Booking early will get the best rate and also make sure you get one. At peak times of the year some rental companies run out of cars so book early to not be disappointed.

Where to stay

Finding and booking accommodation is easy. Villas, Townhouses and Apartments are available at La Manga Club for short term vacation and long term rental. View properties online, check availability and book for an immediate guaranteed confirmation.

Sounds nice! But is there no local buses to get around? I don't rent cars when I travel since I don't feel comfortable driving.

There are buses, but infrequent. It depends on how much walking you like to do, where on the resort you are staying and of course if you want to use taxis which are the most reliable form of transport other than your own car. Most things you need are central so if you are staying centrally then walking will be ok. Thanks for reading
