Lovely clean ground floor apartment with good facilities. We've stayed here twice now and have had great holidays both times. The pool area is clean and close for the kids to play as is the park area which can be seen from the terrace. Our 11 and 7 year old kids often played on the large grass area to the rear of the terrace in the evening with friends they made. We also travelled with our 9 month old this time and the facilities in the apartment were great. He slept in the travel cot no problem and there were toys for him to play with and also a travel high chair for him to eat in. There was even a childs bowl, plate and cutlery in the apartment.
The golf course on site is excellent and my partner and eldest son played a few games. The driving range is also very reasonable at only 3 euros for 60 balls which kept our 7yr old happy too. There is a kids club in the evenings in the town centre which is useful for younger children, although everywhere is child friendly. An addition we found this year that wasn't there before is that an air hockey table, pinball game and pool table has been added in a communal area next to the golf pro shop for the kids to use. The games are 1 euro each - they provided entertainment for our boys in the evenings. There are also computers which you can use when you buy an internet card at the clubhouse bar.
The location of La Torre Golf resort is a bit remote, therefore you need to have access to a car during your stay if you want to visit places. We hired a car for the full 2 weeks on both holidays and enjoyed visiting places around the local area. There are some lovely beaches nearby. We also went go-karting, took a ferry across to La Manga, went to the waterpark at Torrevieja which is a short drive away. We also drove up to Benidorm and took the kids to Terra Mitica theme park which was a brilliant day out. Other activities we found nearby were adventure golf for the kids, a zoo in murcia next to the waterpark, pedalos at Los Alcazares. There are also plenty of nice restaurants to eat at off site if you want a change of scenery from the resort.
All in all we'd recomment this apartment to anyone looking for a nice relaxing holiday. The location may not be best suited to teenagers, however for children who enjoy spending most of the day in the pool its ideal. The owner of this apartment is very helpful too and communicates very well with you.

I went to the appartment for the last two weeks in June. I went with my husband, 15 month old daughter and parents. We all stayed in the appartment very comfortably and I can honestly say we were amazed at the level of comforts and facilities provided. To mention a few that spring to mind - hairdryer, travel cot, washing machine, high chair, microwave and cooker, large fridge with freezer, various childrens toys, two sets of golf clubs, childrens bicycle, brick built bbq, fenced private paved garden, outside dinning table, potty seat, DVD player with various DVD movies, board games, international satalite telly with UK channels e.g BBC, ITV etc.
The location of the appartment on the La Torre site is ideal, as its very close to the supermarket, restaurants, club house & bar. The appartment block is clean and the grounds were well looked after, everywhere is green and well watered/maintained. There are a couple of pools, baby pool and additional playhouse/slide in the garden. All of which kept my daughter entertained. The apartment itself has a large garden parasol available to use which I pulled out ensuring my daughter could always get shade from the sun.
I would say that due to the nature of La Torre being a purpose built resort I wouldn't personally go without hiring a car. This means that the wide range of local restaurants become an option and there are a number of really good restaurants in Roldan (the nearest town) and of course along the Mar Menor.
There are a large number of beach stretches close by, the nearest being about 15mins drive.
My husband and father got a few rounds in and they both were impressed with La Torre and El Valle courses.
The communication between myself and the apartment owner was efficent and pleasant. And the local keyholder was a wealth of local information and great restaurant recomendations. Would definately recomend this appartment to anyone, especially those with children.
