There is no getting away from the fact that when you choose La Manga, the main reason is likely to be for the healthy, sporty outdoor lifestyle, but one of the other principle reasons is almost certainly for the food, both in and around La Manga, there are more restaurants than you care to think about and you’ll certainly be able to enjoy a completely different culinary experience pretty much every day during your tennis holiday, unless of course you’re planning a 3-month stay!
Maribel Restaurant is a traditional Spanish restaurant located on the road to the West Golf Course, so not very far away from the main centre at all. In fact it’s only about a 2-minute drive from La Manga centre itself and 5 minutes from Los Belones, so it’s perfectly accessible, wherever you choose as your base for your tennis stay. A pretty much unassuming exterior, you’ll be particularly surprised and pleased if you manage to secure yourself a table on the terrace at this restaurant that offers a varied, albeit largely fish-based menu. From the terrace, on which you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink before your meal, you’ll enjoy views over the landscape at La Manga, right across to the plain at the Mar Menor.
There are many, many reasons why people flock back to La Manga year after year and one of the main ones is the golf, with a choice between three stunning courses plus a pitch and putt, golfers could be forgiven for thinking they’d died and gone to golfing heaven when they touch down at La Manga Club. With a choice between the North Course, the South Course and the West Course, even during a two-week holiday you won’t tire of the challenges posed by these offerings.
Add to the specifics of the golf courses themselves, the golf facilities, the weather and the mind-blowing choice of styles and types of accommodation and you start to see why this place is so very popular. Set right in the south of Spain, the resort enjoys an astounding number of hours of sunshine year round, which is great news for golfers who are sick of dodging showers in the UK.
No matter what your reason for coming to La Manga, if you’re looking for self-catering accommodation, you’ll be spoilt for choice While there is the 5-star Hotel Principe Felipe right at the centre of the resort, but hotel accommodation isn’t everyone’s idea of what they want for their holiday. Many people prefer to take advantage of a self-catering option because it enables them to take life at their own pace as well as having the freedom to make meals and snacks whenever they want.
As part of the resort itself, the La Manga branded self-catering option is called Las Lomas Village. The village has a real Spanish feel to it and is superbly designed and landscaped, as well as boasting stylish, yet functional interiors.
