Perfecto en tiempos de COVID
Debido a la situación actual mi pareja y yo buscábamos un apartamento alejado de cualquier núcleo urbano donde hubiese muchas aglomeraciones de personas y decidimos Aldea Real debido a su localización. Se encuentra en una zona muy tranquila, alejada del núcleo urbano pero a la vez está a 5 minutos en coche. Tiene dos playas muy próximas (Por delante la Cala del Pino y por detrás la Cala del Turco) en las que el único contra es que hay que bajar unas cuantas escaleras pero una vez allí había poca gente y el agua estaba muy tranquila y muy limpia. El apartamento perfecto, tiene todos los electrodomésticos, cubiertos, etc... a disposición de los huéspedes, tiene un aparato de Aire Acondicionado que se agradecía bastante, Televisión, plaza de garaje privada, una terraza con una mesa y sillas para cenar por la noche con vistas... En definitiva una muy opción si se va buscando tranquilidad, vistas y buenas playas. Recomiendo leer el PDF que envía el propietario con las instrucciones para coger las llaves del apartamento.

No lo recomiendo para una familia con niños pequeños (en julio/agosto)
Lo más destacable (positivamente) es que la propietaria muestra interés y toma medidas antes solicitudes que se realizan y con rapidez, lo cual quiero agradecer nuevamente por esta vía. Dicho esto, y considerando que he ido en agosto (época más calurosa): - La urbanización y apartamento tiene sus años, y se nota (incluido ajuar de la casa) - Sitio caluroso y húmedo, complicado para dormir y más aún si tienes niños pequeños. Cierto es que la propietaria compró un aparato de aire acondicionado tras solicitarlo, que sirvió para solucionar (parcialmente) la situación. Parcialmente porque (i) era un sólo aparato, siendo un duplex; y (ii) es un aparato que hace mucho ruido (incómodo, y más por la noche si es necesario tenerlo puesto). - La orientación de la casa es tal que da el sol a partir de las 11h, por lo que salón/terraza y cuartos son calurosos. - Sólo tiene un armario en la casa (y éramos 3 adultos y 2 niños). - Comodidad en general mejorable (sofá, camas, armarios con cosas del propietario que retiró tras ser solicitado, cocina y muebles con cosas de los anteriores inquilinos - que algunos han valorado positivamente, yo no lo valoro tanto). Yo no repetiría personalmente y de ahí mi nota de "malo", pero entiendo que podría encajar a inquilinos sin niños pequeños y que no vayan a pasar mucho tiempo en casa, así como otras épocas del año no tan calurosas.

Luis,... we appreciate your feedback and are always willing to take on board reasonable requests. I think if you are booking a holiday home in future you should read what is available to you. We never stated we had air conditioning available however when you notified us to say your children could not sleep because of the heat We bought at much expense an air conditioner. It was an exceptionally hot summer in La Manga,so I can imagine it was difficult with children.The caretakers of our property went out of their way to sssist you and deal with your requests. I wish you all the best in your future holidays.

Fantastic vacation
Fue un estupendo viaje en el que estaba todo muy ordenado y muy bien el chalet, todo muy limpio. Desde el balcón se disfrutaban de unas vistas estupendas hacia los dos mares. Ha sido una semana fantástica y hemos disfrutado muchísimo. Además el propietario responde a las horas y no hemos encontrado ningún inconveniente. 😊😊😊

Muy bien
El apartamento esta genial situado en lo alto de la manga a 3 minutos andando del mar menor y a unos 15 minutos andando del Mediterráneo, la cuesta de vuelta se hace algo pesada pero merece la pena ya que seguramente sean las mejores vistas de la manga. La piscina es espectacular, y está muy cerca de restaurantes y de la zona de ambiente, el apartamento tiene cositas que debería mejorar, no tiene aire acondicionado,wifi ni microondas que me parecen muy necesarios, pero ya se lo hemos comunicado a los propietarios. Así todo me parece súper recomendable y si podemos volveremos.

Vistas excelentes y Atención exquisita
En el corazón de la Manga, con todos los servicios a máximo 20 minutos a pié. Incluida la Marina Dosmares, plaza Bohemia, los 2 mares,... Y sin embargo con un entorno de tranquilidad absoluta. Con garaje, muy necesario en La Manga en temporada alta y especialmente los fines de semana. Apartamento totalmente equipado para cada momento del año. Y si te falta un detalle, mandas un Whatsapp y en el día te lo solucionan. Por ejemplo, bajaron las temperaturas y enseguida nos proporcionaron radiadores... Amabilidad suprema por parte de Edel y sus amigos Ann y Peter que actúan en su nombre cuando está ausente. Magníficas vistas de La Manga en toda su extensión y relax... Salvo que desees lo contrario, que también lo tienes en las cercanías. En definitiva, un lugar a repetir. Gracias!!! Edel, Ann y Peter Fué un placer a pesar de mi accidente

Home from home with a great view - best in summer
Fab duplex with plenty of space and great terrace with lovely views of the mar menor sunsets. Comfy beds and a well equipped kitchen with loads of herbs, spices and staples which we added to but made the "living there" experience so much better than some of the "bare" apartments we have stayed in previously. Lounge space (note no pics!) was not the comfiest but a few pillows sorted that (only a 3-seater sofa though for a 3 bed apt so if you are going off season (i.e. before June), and likely to be spending more time indoors, you need to consider this. Not an issue for us as just 3 but I would have been cross if we had 2 others with us as weather was not great for a few days and we had to use dining chairs and outdoor plastic chairs indoors. TV limited to Spanish channels although Spectrum FM (English radio) provided a great background and we spent several evenings listening to tracks we hadn't heard for years!! Honestly, it was nice to switch off TV for a week and play games and chat for a change! As for La Manga, I had been before and we knew it was quiet off season, expect a lot of closed bars and restaurants outside of peak season. That said, there are some great all season places which once searched out are fab. The beach bar in walking distance was lovely and had some great café tapas at paquebote further up the strip and some nice places at Thomas Maestre marina. Cartagena and Torrevieja were great for days out. Pool at apartment was closed (although clean) while we were there although we found that we could use the local hotel Cavanna indoor pool for Euro 3 per person per day (you need a swim cap or can buy one for 2 euro each). Hope you enjoy your stay - overall we had a great time!

Par Excellence !!
My friend and I decided to have a winter break in October; la Manga looked like a sunny safe option. We flew into Alicante and hired a car; I found the driving a little long but very comfortable as the road system seems to be very good on the coast. We arrived at Aldea Real late at night -we could not believe that the apartment had all the amenities that it had -down to coffee pot and perculator (I love coffee in morning) and the view from the balcony was just breath-taking. The apartment was so spacious, clean and comfortable we felt as if we had two separate apartments. Great location -pubs and eateries withing walking distance. We also got the ferry over to Lo Pagan to visit and part take in the natural mud baths and visited the beautiful historic Cartagena -did not like leaving there seemed to be much more to do and we did not have the time -would stay again most definitely.

This apartment and location was so relaxing,a stress buster.
Our trip to La <a class="inlineAdmedialink" href="#"><a class="inlineAdmedialink" href="#">Manga</a></a> was without hassle.We flew into Murcia San Javier,a small and friendly airport.Hired a car without any bother ,drove the short distance to the apartment and were so pleasantly surprised with the location..........The deep blue Mediterranean on one side and the turquoise Mar Menor on the other.The Med was a delight to swim in and the Mar Menor was so safe and at a depth that small children can have such great fun in..we hired kayaks and went to the island .The <a class="inlineAdmedialink" href="#"><a class="inlineAdmedialink" href="#">apartment</a></a> has every convenience for a self catering stay ,the kitchen is very well equipped .We ate out on the balcony every mealtime ,except when we ate out....... there are plenty of cafes and <a class="inlineAdmedialink" href="#">restaurants</a> to choose from on the strip,and close by.The beds were comfy and the rooms cool.Also just ten minutes away is a lovely park with tennis raquet ball, and lots of amusements for the children ,with a friendly bar where the adults can relax whilst the children are entertained,and all for a few euro.brilliant!.......We will be going back .

Getting around
A great place for walking and cycling, a visit to Cartagena is a must. Where a ferry tour is wonderful!
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Airports: Murcia San Javier 39 km Alicante 80km Railway: Cartagena 39km Ferry: Tomas Maestre 4km Flying. The closest airports are Murcia San Javier (30 minute drive to the apartment) and Alicante ( 1 hour 40 minutes drive).There are many flights from the UK. Ryanair, Easyjet , Bmi baby and Monarch are just a few. If you're not familiar with the airports www.skyscanner.net is a great way to check flights. 'Car Hire' Driving to the apartment is reasonably easy and is clearly signposted to La Manga. should car hire be your choice. Both airports have many car rental companies operating from them and can be found on the airports' websites. Sixt, Europa Rentacar, Concordrentacar and Avis are some I have used and advanced booking is advisable at busy holiday times. Although a car is not essential it does give you greater freedom to see more of the stunning area. My tip: concordrentacar have an office about 3km from the apartment so it is possible to return the car to them after a day or so and re-book for the return journey to the airport. That way you're not paying for the car whilst relaxing at the pool or on the beach. Taxis Are situated right outside the door of both Alicante and Murcia airports.Expect to pay approx 150€ from Alicante and 60€ from Murcia to the door of the apartment. At selected times I can arrange transfer at a slightly cheaper rate. The Ferry / Cheapest route From Murcia San Javier airport if arriving between 10am and 6pm. It is possible to taxi , ferry and walk/ taxi again to the apartment at a cost of 20€ for 2 people. Take a taxi to the ferry mooring in 'Santiago del Ribera' which is just 10 mins and 10€ from the airport. The ferry sails every 2 hours until 6pm / 8pm in July and August. There is only one route accross the Mar Menor to Tomas Maestre Marina takes about 30 mins and costs 4€ each. From there it's a 45 min / 4 km walk to the appt.
