“Fantastic Holiday! Would highly recommend!”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My partner and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Villa Ombu in Murcia. Murcia was such a beautiful area, although we did have to drag ourselves away from the villa, which was amazing!
Communication with Janet prior to the holiday was great, which made getting to the villa and picking up the keys etc. really easy. We were greeted with a lovely card and instructions to contact Victoria if we needed her (which we didn't throughout the whole holiday).

The villa itself was perfect for me and James and would make a great location for a family. It was clean, tidy and welcoming when we arrived, with a lovely pool area. The pool is heated so we even went in there on the days when it was overcast. We made good use of the kitchen facilities which had everything you need. We slept in the double, en-suite room which had a balcony and a lovely view of the golf course and overlooked the garden - Lovely to wake up to every morning.
The air conditioning was a god send, especially in the evenings. The wi-fi connection was also really good, even in the garden area so we could play music from our phones. We didn't encounter any issues as raised in earlier reviews.

We hired a car whilst we were there as we wanted to explore the area. Los Alcazares is just a 15 min drive and has a lovely beach and promenade, with restaurants to eat and drink. We also visited Cartegena which was a 30 min drive. There are some lovely shops and buildings and again plenty of places to eat and drink. We ventured to Alicante which took about an hour, which has a lovely harbor. We visited the Santa Barbara Castle while we were there which has amazing views of the surrounding area - Not to be missed! My favourite place however was La Manga, just a 25 min drive which is a strip with sea on either side. We had a lovely meal on our last night on the beach which had a lovely atmosphere.

We visited the Mar Menor Hotel on site and had a lovely meal in the Spanish restaurant. We also went to the pub Clover, which had a friendly atmosphere for a few drinks.
We also ventured down to Route 66 for food and had a little pub crawl to the few bars that were just outside the villa's complex.

Overall a fantastic holiday which I would recommend to others. I'd certainly go back as there are quite a few towns near by that i'd like to visit.

“Fantastic villa”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have stayed in several villas on the resort and almost all have been excellent but this villa is outstanding. The location is great. South facing front line means sun all day and only the ping of a club hitting a ball ( and maybe the occasional 'fore' ) to break the peace and tranquility. The quality of the furnishings in the villa is excellent and it feels more like a home than a typical rental villa. The owners have thought of everything but in particular the equipment available in the kitchen is exceptional when compared to other villas we've stayed in. Plenty of dishes which is important if you're not eating out every night.
The pool was great. We opted for pool heating due to the time of year and I'm glad we did. The pool cover certainly helps to retain the warmth in the water when it's not being used. Plenty of private space around the property - never a feeling of being overcrowded. The sun room was fantastic particularly when a cool breeze arrived. The owner Janet answered any emails very promptly and answered any questions. Lots of info provided both before we went and also in the info folder in the villa.. A welcome card with some wine and nibbles was much appreciated. I can't rate this villa highly enough and look forward to being able to book again. Thanks Janet and Carol fior making it available.

“For families and golfers this is an excellent villa in a great location.”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the 2nd time our family have stayed at the villa. There is plenty of room both inside and out for everyone to enjoy. While the husbands and grandson played golf myself and my daughters and younger grandchildren were happy to relax and enjoy the outside areas. The pool is a generous size and was utilised all the time. Plenty of areas to sit both inside and out to take a break from the sun or just relax. Wifi/internet brilliant especially for the kids.
We needed to get in touch with the management team (for ourselves) and they were so helpful. It is reassuring when abroad to be able to have this contact.
All in all would we stay at this villa again -YES defintley.

“Excellent week stay”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were two couples with two 10 year old girls. The Villa had everything required to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable. The couple we were with had never stayed in a Villa before and are now converts to the Villa lifestyle after staying at Villa Ombu.

The Pool and dining area benefits from the sun all day long. We did put the parasols up as it was over 100 degrees at the time, perfect time to make use of the pool. Although the villa has wi fi, it was great to see the kids drawn away from social media, iPads etc. with the pool taking preference

There is a fantastic information pack in the Villa which contains details of local restaurants, activities and events which came in very helpful. We had some good days and evenings out in Los Alcazares and Cartegena, and also enjoyed the bars and restaurants on site, of which there are many to choose from.

Although we were there for only a week, we found that there is a lovely community feel to the resort, which I found to be like a small town with its tree lined roads which are kept immaculate, local shops and amenities.

The golf course is stunning. The fairways and greens are in top condition, well watered and manicured. Tips on how to book are within the info pack and very straight forward.

This was the first time I have stayed in this region, having stayed in the Alicante region several times over the past few years. I enjoyed everything Villa Ombu offered and will definitely be returning.

A big thanks to Janet and Carol for the ease of which the booking was made.

“Not Long Enough.............!!!!!!”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Firstly, this villa is superb. After reading an earlier review, we were a bit sceptical but needn't of been. That person must of got out of the wrong side of the bed or just likes being a 'Victor Meldrew'.
In our party of 4 was my wife, brother-in-law, sister-in-law & myself. Age range from 38-48. We just went for 4 nights & 5 days, with a couple of rounds of golf thrown in. We, like most people, like the finer things in life, & this villa was just that.
Last year, we all stayed in villa at El Valle Golf Resort, & that was good, & we said that this villa would have to go someway to beat it, & it did. We all agreed, this was better. The whole package. From the first communication with Janet, to the easy directions, to seeing the villa, to entering the villa, to living in the villa, to the welcome pack, to the resort, to the golf, to the weather etc, was excellent. We couldn't of asked for more.
The villa had a very homely feel.
Apparently there was a really bad storm which caused some damage & villa Ombu was one of those affected. Janet emailed to inform us just days before our holiday of this fact & offered a full refund because they couldn't guarantee the villa's problems would be rectified in time. We were confident all would be ok on the day & declined the offer but accepted an offer of a refund on the pool heater because that was one of the major problems. But we needn't of worried because Janet sent an all clear email a day or two before we flew.
There was just one give away that there had been a rain/water problem. In the conservatory area there were cloths placed under the light fittings but all was dry.
The villa was clean with a bottle of wine & water with a welcome card. Bed sheets & bath towels were soft & clean, & plentiful. We pulled the pool cover back to reveal a warm (heated) sparkling pool. Spla-doooosssshhhhh!!!!! That was my wife's No1 request, a heated pool. She loved it.
The villa as got everything you would expect, & more. Its not short of anything. The sun was over the pool everyday from 10am ish to 6pm ish. It would of been for longer but for other villas & tall trees. But thats where the first floor sun terraces came in to the equation. They gave you an extra couple of hours. Plus a lovely view of the 5th hole & more.
We were close to all the amenities e.g. Spar shop, hotel, golf, clubhouse, bars. Max 5 min walk or 7 min stagger.
The TV was ideal for keeping up with the news over breakfast, as well as watching the bad weather reports back home. What a shame!!! Never mind, TV off & time for a swim before melting in the 30+ temperature. The air-con was god send.
The iPhone/iPod docking station for music & charging, is a superb idea & was used everyday & night.
We did have a couple of hiccups e.g. pool went murky (we still got in it) & there were a few ants. We sprayed the ants, none seen again & we contacted Janet reference the pool & she sorted for the pool to be cleaned & treated the next morning. As if by magic, it went back to being crystal clear. Spla-dooossshhh!!!
Would we go back? ....................... Bloomin' right we would!!!!! In fact we are already considering booking for next year.

“Nicely situated villa but a disappointment”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Only one small BBQ which was full off ash and grease, we had to clean before use, to small to cook for five, info says two BBQ and shows Chiminea, this was not there.Pool had 11 golf balls in it and blackgrease on the tiles around waterline, we informed owner and the pool was cleaned next day, it was never cleaned again in our 2 week stay. Only 4 sun lounges around pool had to put 2 chairs together to create another one, chairs around outside glass table 2 were held together with gaffe tape and a third was broken this we put with other broken chairs by shed, the umbrella was broken to the glass table, we informed the owner who informed us there was a new one behind sofa in a box, this was found which we assembled. Covered patio furniture fraying around edges, downstairs bedroom wardrobe draws did not fit all out of line, on suit to upstairs bedroom shower holder fell of wall very loose fitting. water system had a mind of its own, had many a cold shower as the temperature off water change from hot to cold without touching controls, the Carbom Monoxide Alarm went of one night, we found in the morning that the batteries had run out, contacted the property manager who said to take the batteries out, I ask for the batteries to be replaced they never responded so we took the batteries from the clocks around the villa to get it working.

The villa needs regular maintenance, repair and TLC, very disappointed

This is the first complaint we have received in 8 years; we take it very seriously and would like to address the issues raised. We visited the villa last week so know exactly how things are at the moment.
The BBQ grill was perfectly clean; we do ask guests to clean it after use so obviously the previous guest must have left it dirty. The BBQ is perfectly adequate for 5 people; we apologise for the stone BBQ being absent, it was badly damaged in a storm earlier this year and was dismantled it in the interest of guest safety. We have not been able to replace it as the villa has been booked solid since April and we have only just been able to visit.
The pool was definitely cleaned each week during this guests stay; he may not have seen the pool cleaner as he comes very early during August - it is much cooler then. The ‘grease’ on the pool tiles is caused by guests not showering off sun cream before entering the pool (as requested)and is removed at every pool clean.
Re sun loungers - there are only 4; the pool area would be crowded with more. There was no need to put 2 chairs together as 4 of the chairs are 7 position recliners and can be used as a sun bed. We apologise for the broken chairs, we were not aware until last week and have bought some new ones; they have to be replaced frequently because of the constant use. The umbrellas are replaced frequently; they are used all the time and are essential which is why we leave out a spare one.
We stayed in the downstairs bedroom last week and did not have a problem with the drawers at all. The chairs in the patio lounge were a little frayed due to the intense summer heat, these have been repaired. We have to replace the shower holders frequently because of the constant use, again had we been told about it we would have replaced it.
Re the water, it wasn’t a problem for us until the last day of our stay, the engineer is coming this week to sort it; no one else has complained so we weren’t aware of the problem.
Finally re the CO2 monitor; had this guest checked in the utility room he would have found spare batteries, most people would have just replaced the battery.
What this guest didn’t mention was that our manager worked extremely hard to have the villa ready for his arrival at midday instead of 4pm at no extra charge. He contacted us about 2 problems and they were sorted immediately, had we known about the other issues those would have been sorted as well. We feel this is a very unfair review and would ask potential guests to look at the other reviews instead.
