Families planning to escape the bleak UK weather and take a holiday in Spain this year may wish to consider a break at Mar Menor in Murcia.
One of Spain's finest holiday complexes, it basks in sunshine for more than 300 days a year and has an extensive range of sports and leisure facilities.
The five-star Intercontinental Hotel boasts 57 deluxe rooms, as well as a number of executive suites and a royal suite.
Furthermore, the resort also features 924 villas, 184 townhouses and 1,150 apartments, meaning that there is an accommodation option to suit everyone.
As well as enjoying the sports facilities on offer at La Torre, guests can also indulge in some pampering by visiting the exclusive Thai Room Spa.
A range of sumptuous treatments can be booked by holidaymakers, with gift certificates also available for purchase.
The signature Thai royal massage is the ideal option for guests who want to unwind after a long day on the golf course. Other treatments on offer include the jamu massage and the Thai room reflection.
Holidaymakers taking flights to Spain and elsewhere should take a combination of cash and credit cards with them, it has been suggested.
Sarah Munro, head of Post Office Travel Services, said that by doing this travellers, can ensure they are prepared for all eventualities.
"It is important to carry some cash to pay for taxis and drinks and in many destinations, it will be needed to buy goods," she commented.
Ms Munro noted that holidaymakers can also apply for prepaid currency cards, which can be loaded with euros and used in the same way as a debit card.
More than half (52 per cent ) of Britons opt for cash as their primary payment method when on holiday in Spain and elsewhere, it has been revealed.
Research published by Santander found that just five per cent of people use traveller's cheques.
Of those polled, 47 per cent said they withdraw at least three-quarters of their weekly holiday spending money from ATMs.
Vim Maru, director of retail products at the organisation, commented: "Some may find this research surprising - with so many Britons relying on cash when they are abroad and the once ubiquitous traveller's cheque is only as popular as the foreign currency account.
The majority of people are in favour of the introduction of a tax for overweight passengers on flights to Spain and elsewhere, it has been revealed.
Research carried out by travel search site Skyscannner found that 76 per cent of people would like to see large travellers charged more.
The company's director and co-founder Barry Smith said that so-called fat taxes are a sensitive issue for airlines.
He noted that on one hand, it is not unreasonable for carriers to charge passengers more if they take up two seats.
Located in Murcia, Hotel La Manga Club Principe Felipe is the ideal destination for Brits planning a luxury holiday in Spain this year.
The five-star property boasts 192 elegantly furnished rooms and suites, as well as an exclusive royal club, which offers guests a number of exclusive benefits.
These include VIP access to Spa La Manga Club, complimentary refreshments in the lobby bar, internet access in the business centre, a daily newspaper and a nightly pre-dinner cocktail, among other things.
Royal club rooms come decorated to an exceptionally high standard and are equipped with televisions, speakerphones, dataports, and LCD televisions.
As well as exploring La Manga complex and enjoying all of the activities on offer there, guests will also find a number of attractions to visit outside.
One natural feature that draws millions of people to the Murcia region annually is the Mar Menor.
Also known as the little sea, it is Europe's largest saltwater lagoon and the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing dip or some water-based activities.
The Mar Menor is much warmer than the surrounding Mediterranean and is no more than six metres deep at any point.
La Manga Club is the ideal base for families who want to jet to Spain and explore the Murcia region this summer.
The resort is easily accessible from the UK, with Alicante and Murcia Airports both within easy reach.
Holidaymakers will find many natural and cultural attractions to explore in the area, such as the stunning Calblanque National Park.
This borders La Manga Club and is a site of spectacular natural beauty.
If you like the idea of relaxing once your treatment is over, then you may wish to consider booking a luxurious spa suite at La Manga Club.
These can be used for a single therapy or a full day of indulgence and offer you a private sanctuary to relax in and make the most of your spa experience.
Paying the suite supplement means you can spend an additional 30 minutes lounging around after your treatment and make use of your own private bathtub, steam shower and personal dressing room.
Once you have had your massage or facial you may wish explore some of the spa's other fantastic facilities, which include a variety of water features.
With most sports, it pays to start playing from a young age and build up your skills over the years.
La Manga Club's junior golf academy caters for children of all ages and abilities, making it the perfect place to introduce them to the sport.
Operating during the school holidays, it offers a range of courses lasting for four days.
Every aspect of the game is covered during the daily sessions, including the basics of alignment and grip.
