“Five star all the way”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What can we say, from the moment you start communicating with Lionel and Nicole you know this is a couple who care about your holiday. Lots of useful information and no question is ever to much trouble to answer.

The villa is itself lovely, in a very safe "gated" resort, and is equipped with everything you need for a great holiday. I would suggest that to get the best from this villa that you rent a car, however this is easy and relatively cheap from both Alicante and Murcia airport.

Possibly the best thing i can say about our holiday in Casa de Mendes is that my children (13 & 10) are already planning a trip back there.

Thank you for a great holiday

Thank you for these kind and honest words.
We aim to ensure that your holiday in our Luxury Villa is enjoyable, memorable and relaxing with the intention that you will want to come back again and again.
Our aim is to provide everyone with sufficient information on the villa, the resort, travel facilities and local attractions with the view to making you enjoy the various activities in the area. We find communication with our guests very enjoyable and it always proves helpful to share holiday experiences and discoveries.
We also find hiring a car is very easy and economical and extremely useful to get about locally and makes the most out of the holiday.
We have had many comments from guests of feeling very safe in the resort, with the villa being well equipped to give you a great holiday.
The ultimate compliment is when your 10 and 13 year year old start planning to come back to the villa for their next holiday. You will all be very welcome to return anytime.

“A beautiful "home from home" villa!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We recently stayed at this villa and had a wonderful family holiday. Travelling from Murcia airport to El Valle Golf Resort was quick and easy (around 25 minutes) and once we were at the villa it felt like we had bought a little bit of home with us. The villa is spacious and all on one level, comprising of 3 large double bedrooms, 1 family bathroom and master with ensuite. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need for your stay (including a large American style fridge/freezer with water dispenser) and the villa is generally equipped for a comfortable stay. The outside area is amazing with a clean, we'll maintained garden and pool area with none less than 3 seating areas. We loved every minute of our stay at this wonderful villa and it particularly suited our young family. We felt safe and secure and other families staying on the complex were friendly and helpful.
The supermarket on at the resort is very well stocked for all of your essential holiday needs and the club house is lovely as was the food. The only down side we felt to this holiday was the service we received at the club house - we felt the staff were unfriendly, un-attentive and often quite rude, everything seemed like. "Chore" to them and we waited often for service, drinks and our food. Also, there wasn't much for the children to do in the evenings with the entertainment being very adult orientated.
The owner is lovely and very helpful, approachable and amenable. We never took his advice about car hire but would definitely do this next time and would highly recommend anyone staying at the villa to do so as even the walk to the supermarket/ club house is around a 30minute walk there and 30minute walk back!
All in all we had a fantastic stay at this beautiful villa and on this lovely resort, we cannot wait to return sometime and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Your appreciation of the range of facilities that we have provided for in the Villa have been noted by many of our holidaymakers, and we are pleased that your young family made excellent use of the Villa and grounds.
Yes it is a very friendly rsort and we will feed back to the clubhouse on your comments. A car is extremely useful not just for getting to and from the airport but the many local sights that can be visited no matter what age group your party is.
Our aim is to be approachable and available 24/7 and we will always offer advice from when you book your holiday to well after your return home.
We as always look forward to our Holiday makers returning back to us as it shows that A Good Time Was Had By All.

“Beautiful, homely villa on a relaxing resort”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We've stayed in quite a few Spanish villas and this was by far the nicest. Both the living room and master bedroom have double height ceilings, which give the villa an incredible feeling of space and airiness. Both rooms also lead out onto the pool, which is more than big enough for a few of you to lounge in and even a little swimming.

There is a great living room and two separate outdoor sitting/eating areas (one under cover and the other shaded).

The resort was very quiet when we stayed in June, which was incredible. The clubhouse bar/restaurant was very nice and not too expensive. For more restaurants the other Polaris world resorts of La Torre is just down the round (10 mins drive) and Mar Menor (20 mins away) - both have plenty of choice as they are larger resorts.

Lionel was incredibly helpful and we weren't the easiest guests with two toddlers! He couldn't do enough for us from booking to leaving.

We loved the villa and it made our holiday wonderful - we can't wait to go back!

We are really pleased that the family enjoyed the villa and made great use of the pool and large garden area with various seating arrangements.
This Villa is on a a pupose built resort which is improving all the time and we are pleased you found the clubhouse restaurant excellent value.
We are now quite used to catering for families, couples and sporting groups and we appreciate your gratitude for what we assume is normal support and guidance that we give to all our holiday makers.
We look forward to you and your friends coming back.

“Excellent accommodation and a good base for exploring”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A lovely and relaxing week spent exploring the area and playing golf at this resort and at two others.
Nice bedrooms and large living accommodation so even with 6 people it does not feel cramped.
Good secluded pool area although it was a little cool in March.

This Luxury villa is very comfortable for 6 people, but we do try and accomadate for larger families and groups who have a limited budget.
Our Villa is a brilliant base for using the surrounding facilities of golfing, hiking, kayaking, wind surfing, numeous waterand beach sports, quad-biking, horse riding, shopping or just simply relaxing in the pool or the various garden areas privided within the villa grounds.
The pool is maintained all year round and is used mainly between March and October, however some brave holidaymakers have reported enjoying the pool in February and Novemeber.
Our aim is to always ensure that your booking is easy and hassle-free.

“Great villa for exploring the area”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Went to villa with 7 friends in May 2014. Slight squeeze for eight, six would be ideal. Outdoor furniture ample, with luxury sunbeds, large dining table and a further undercover area with wicker chairs and throws.
Inside was spotlessly clean and is very well appointed with three double bedrooms, shower room and bathroom. Ample wardrobe space. Well appointed kitchen and large lounge with usual audio visual facilities. Fast, free wifi, much appreciated by all.
The villa is on a golf resort with supermarket and restaurant. Restaurant was reasonably priced and food ok, but not great. Didn't try the golf course but it looked pretty.
Definitely need a car as the excellent range of activities in the Murcia region are widely spaced. The Sierra Espuna nature reserve in the mountains has all adventure activities. The Med is 30 minutes away. The inland sea, Mar Minor, was 24C in May, warmer than anywhere else in the med. It offers safe bathing, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing. Aqua Adicta looked after us for a whole day of water sports. Horse riding is available in several locations for all levels. We, as complete beginners, had an hour with the calmest horses possible in Villamartin, thanks Mustafa.
Benidorm is 1.5 hours away and well worth a visit. We did a Segway tour which was quite an experience!
Booking was easy through PayPal via Holiday Letting.
All in all an excellent place for a vacation

We are really pleased that you all found our villa an excellent place for your vacation and made use of the variable activities avalable in the vicinity. Thank you for leaving the information on these activies for us to hand on to future holiday makers.
The Murcia region and the Mar Menor as you noted are renowned for the excellent weather, warmer waters and adventure and cultural activities.
This luxury villa with 3 large bedrooms, bathroom and shower room is very comfortable for 6 adults, but we are very happy to provide 2 additional beds if a group requests it. These additional beds are usually requested for 2 additional children.
We are pleased that you made use of the resort supermarket and restaraunt. We are disappointed you felt that the restaraunt food was OK as most past clients have found the food and surroundings excellent- we will feed this back to the Resort restaraunt.
We appreciate you confirming that booking your vacation with us was easy through Paypal and Holiday Letting and as you found, we were always willing to answer any queries and help out with planning your holiday and activities

“Great holiday!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had 5 adults, 2 toddlers & 1 young child in our party. The villa was a lovely size and clean and well laid out. The children loved the swimming pool (although it was a little cold in May!) and the toys and rubber rings etc provided added to their fun! There was a great range of books & DVD's to choose from for entertainment for both adults & children. The kitchen was a little small with no real storage for food but we found some space so not too much of a problem. There didn't seem to be a shortcut to walk to the supermarket so this was about a half an hour walk but an enjoyable walk nonetheless and lunch at the end in the club house was nice. The complex was very quiet when we were there (perfect!) but did feel a bit in the middle of nowhere but both the complex, and the villa, were very secure, which was very important for us with the children. All in all a lovely holiday :-)

We are thrilled that you found our Villa very suitable for your party of 8 and that the children made full use of the Private Swimming Pool and Large Garden.
We appreciate that the well equipped kitchen could do with a bit more storage, and so we had provided storage space in the large dining room and adjacent utility room.
The road-side walk to the Resort supermarket and Clubhouse restaurant is very scenic and safe with childrens play areas and communal pools on the way. However there is a shortcut, along the edge of the golf course, which holiday makers make use of outside golf times.
We are so glad that you found it so safe as this was the main reason for us buying this Luxury villa on this resort as the safety and security within the villa and resort was paramount for our children.
As recommended a car is useful for those who wish to travel, sightsee and explore the various activities and events around the Murcia and Mar Menor area. However, many of our holiday makers enjoy staying on site for a relaxing quiet holiday making use of the facilities in the villa and resort.
