We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with our 2 year old daughters at Roda golf resort which we booked through Babyboltholes website. The apartment we had was spacious with good size bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, aircon and a large terrace which was nice and shady in the mornings. Our apartment was fantastically well equipped for toddlers as we booked it through the specialist baby holidays website - obviously the apartments will vary. Our apartment had a fenced in terrace which was essential for the children.
Overall, the resort is only 10 minutes from san javier airport in murcia so a short transfer time. It is a huge resort you can see it way before your arrival. You do need a car if you are staying there as its a short drive to the local resort, Los Alcazares and the beach (approx 10 mins) but a long walk in 30-35 degrees heat otherwise. As the Roda Golf resort is so big we could not walk to the clubhouse from our apartment it woudl be a 40 min walk so had to drive, the convenience store is also based there so again needed to drive. There are lots of pools dotted around, you are never more than 50 metres from one, lovely pools quite warm with steps down (not gated). There are play areas on the resort but not gated and strangely not situated in the landscaped pedestrian areas but on the road s so not really suitable for young children- never saw anyone playing on them.
Clubhouse - very good food, slightly strange service e.g waiters arguing in spanish in front of us. Lovely terrace outside the clubhouse but you can see and hear motorway traffic in distance.
Cannot comment on the golf or tennis as did not use but looked to be excellent facilities very well maintained.
we did not go to the beach club as its quite a distance away and woudl have involved us taking car seats with us for transportation when get off ferry plus the beaches locally were very good. sandy with nice warm sea and shelving gently for children.
Los alcazares local resort - nice beaches, pedestrianised walkways with play areasfor children and also good access for disabled people. Some cafes/bars etc along the way - spanish restaurants don't start serving food till 1.30pm but can get tapas before that, english bars/restaurants do food all day. In the evenings, the resort is still quite quiet. Its a modern resort been open about 25 years, its not traditional spanish. Nice restaurant patio II. Good beach at el mejon as well, play area and cafes on beach.
weather in september 30 - 35 degrees but lovely breeze.
all in all we had a great holiday at roda golf with our toddlers, the pools, the beach, the short transfer time and the great apartment and weather made for a super holiday. If you want traditional spain though this is not the place, the area is scrubland, agricultural land and many many golfing resorts. for sightseeing and culture go elsewhere, for beaches and golf this is a good choice.
