La Manga has always been Spain’s most famous sports and golfing resort, the place in Spain for the discerning golf or leisure traveller, it has a massive British influence still and is also very good value in recent time, we have never had so many good deals as we have this year. The Principe Felipe is superb, quality bedrooms, top class service and some great restaurant and bar outlets and always possessing a warm ambience for the visiting golfer. The hotel has been the number one choice also for Britain’s sporting elite for many years and many celebrities take their winter or summer break here due to the excellence of the amenities and the great year round climate. La Manga has great golf, tennis, bowls or even cricket facilities! In the summer months it even has its own beach club and private shuttle. For the lover of golf there are 3 contrasting golf courses on site with different types of challenge! Watch out for the new semi all inclusive which ends in December 2013 in the hotel but will be extended to the Las Lomas apartment complex during 2014.
We also recommend the Royal Club Floors, which give you a special VIP lounge, a chill out area with complimentary snacks, drinks and newspapers.
La Manga Club has been voted Spain's "Best Hotel & Resort" in the inaugural Today’s Golfer Travel Awards and also ‘Best Family Friendly’ within the European Resort Hotel category of the Sunday Times Travel Magazine Reader Awards.
The La Manga Resort is in the Province of Murcia, lying about 1 hour south of Alicante on the road to Cartagena. It is close to the Mar Menor and the famous La Manga Strip - a unique seaside town on a very sharp peninsular. If you are flying into Murcia - it is only a 30 minute’s drive south from San Javier, allow 60 minutes at least from Alicante.

The South Course is the top course where the Spanish Open was held in the old days, when even Arnold Palmer was Champion. It is the longest layout and much the flattest of the 3 designs.
Whilst the North is our favourite, with plenty of variety, lots of elevated tees and dog legs to contend with. The courses have lots of trouble in the form of barranca – dry river beds which are lateral hazards, the main problem on the courses is the palm trees and positioning your tee shots to facilitate an easy second shot. The par five holes you need to lay up or go for it over the barrancas! The greens here are every large and fast, the short game here is crucial.
The West Course is the toughest and the most undulating, but it is also the most scenic as it is sits on high land looking right down on the resort, designed by Dave Thomas, you will either love or hate it.
The last trip to La Manga was excellent. Fantastic golf (3 different and challenging courses) and a great hotel. Excellent food, nice rooms. P.Madsen (July.15)
It was brilliant, the organising your company did was superb, from the information through the post with the itinerary and all the baggage labels to the transfers when we landed all superb. The resort was very good and the hotel superb. The golf was excellent and we enjoyed all the courses. The training facilities there at the Ledbetter academy Were really good. So for our first golf holiday we couldn't have asked for more. The only small niggle was that we wanted to book an extra round on the south course but it was under repair and they had just decided to do it so took the course out for 3 days, I checked with some of the paperwork you sent us and it wasn't listed for repairs but as I said nothing major we played the North course instead. We will probably be contacting you again this year to book another one. My wife has already recommended your company to one of her consultants who will be. Contacting you over the next few days. Once again thank you for arranging our holiday - Andrew Day (June.15)
Just a quick bit of feedback. All positive, courses in excellent condition , west and north courses millionaires golf no-one on them except us!! Hotel great and package very good value for money. Staff excellent - Nigel
Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our week in La Manga over Christmas. The weather was perfect for golf. Sadly I only managed 1.5 rounds as I have a problem with my arms/hands at the moment. However my golf was swapped (with no problem at all ) for Spa treatments - Liz
