“Everything we hoped it would be!”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I enjoyed a week in the Casa de Mendes villa in 2013, but this time we brought our parents along to share in the experience. The spacious villa fitted the 5 of us very comfortably, and once again we chose to eat-in each night as the kitchen/barbecue facilities and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating areas were perfect for relaxed evenings.
The surrounding area has lots to offer, from beaches and bustling Spanish markets, to the lovely city of Murcia with it's plentiful shops, cafes, and places of interest such as the Casino (not an actual casino, but a gentleman's club with intriguing architectural and decorative features that you can look around for a minimal fee, with multi-language audio guide included).
It is a 20-30 minute drive to any of the major shopping outlets and supermarkets, but the small on site supermarket at El Valle is well stocked and fairly priced.
The entire party very much enjoyed our week at Casa de Mendes, and have all agreed we'd love to return.

Thank you for your great review. We are delighted that you decided to return to our beautiful villa once again and are thrilled that your parents also enjoyed their stay.
We can see that you enjoyed making maximum use of the privacy and facilities at the villa. It is very comfortable and relaxing enjoying your families company whilst barbequeing, eating, chatting and having fun in such a lovely warm and spacious environment.
We see you managed to make time to get out and about, and explore some Spanish culture and thank you for sharing your experiences, we will make sure we add them to the Casa de Mendes Welcome Pack. We agree that the onsite supermarket is very easy, reasonable and well stocked - but if your enjoy the bigger experience of shopping centres, markets and other attractions there are plenty to choose from that are not too far away.
You will be pleased to know that we have already added new places to visit for when your next holiday with us.

“Great holiday - will definitely go again”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great holiday in Murcia in August. Booking was quick, easy and hassle-free. The villa was clean, spacious and comfortable. Great facilities - large fridge freezer, own laundry room, ample dining space both inside and out, comfortable lounge, comfortable beds, clean ensuite and bathrooms , private enclosed garden and a lovely pool. The barbecue was clean and ready to use - what a great way to cook and eat grilled fish and prawns al fresco.

We enjoyed a tasty meal at the onsite clubhouse restaurant - would recommend the delicious fish and chips and burgers. Supermarket on site too for all essentials.
As for tourist attractions - go to Algar waterfalls (1/2 hour drive away) for a swim in cool rocky pools or swim towards and under the waterfalls or for the more adventurous a jump from a overhanging rock.
Also recommend visiting the local mud beach renowned for its therapeutic properties.
My 8 year old said it was fun jumping into the pool, and my 12 year old said 'what a cool holiday'. We will definitely go again.

“Excellent facility and great support from owner”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My partner and 9 year old son had one of the best holidays we have had for sometime, largely due to the great facility that is Casa de Mendes. Everything was first class although we did have to wash the pillow cases in one of the rooms. If you don't know the area getting to the site can be a little confusing if you rely on Sat Nav but if you follow the signs all is clear.

The resort was quiet and of high quality reflecting the properties on the site. A car is essential unless you want to stay at the villa which is actually very tempting and easy to do.

The communication from the owner was great. They were available (via phone and email) whenever we needed anything, confirmed everything with time to spare and provided a great welcome pack of information.

Would recommend this villa to anyone and I travel a lot in connection with my work so don't usually write reviews unless the service and quality are exceptional. This falls very much into this category

There is nothing better than to receive a glowing Trip Advisor review from some one who travels a lot and who will only write a review when the service and quality are exceptional. We work very hard to ensure that all our properties achieve these standards. Thank you for your praises.
We are pleased that you were happy with our communications as we endeavour to communicate rapidly and efficiently with everyone from the moment they send us an enquiry, through to their stay at our villas and well past their return home.
We fully agree that a car is essential if you want to enjoy the numerous attractions within close proximity of the villa. We provide a continuously extending suggested itinery made up with input from all our guests.
We are thrilled that our luxury 3 bedroom villa with private pool, large garden and extensive facilities gave you and your family one of your best ever holidays and look forward to your return.
We apologise for the stained pillow case and encourage our holiday makers to contact our cleaners during their stay as we are keen to remedy any problems immediately.

“Fantastic - everything we wanted and more!”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The villa was excellent. We had young children and the villa was superb for them. It was well equipped with dishes etc and the American fridge freezer was fantastic for our large food (and wine) shop!!! The resort was immaculate and very safe. We ate at the clubhouse a couple of times and although they took a while to serve, the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Lionel was excellent in dealing with any questions we had before and during our stay. He was always very friendly and got back to us very quickly. We will definitely be going back here next year and are even considering a 3 week stay we loved it so much!!! The only thing I would say is there is no local bus nearby so you should hire a car as you are about 20 mins away from beaches, restaurants, shops etc, however, Brian who looked after the villa gave us a contact for a taxi service which worked out about a 60 euro round trip. The markets and fair in Alcazerus were great and the areas felt very safe and friendly. Overall an excellent stay that more than met what we were looking for. The ease of booking from start to finish has definitely made it the most stress free holiday we have ever booked and been on! Thank you Lionel.

We are pleased that your family enjoyed their holiday in our villa. The large American Fridge Freezer with cold water and ice- dispenser is one of the many asserts that the villa offers.
We agree that the clubhouse is excellent and reasonably priced for food and drink, which is well worth the wait, whilst enjoying and reflecting on your holiday.
We want your holiday to be enjoyable and relaxing, and always endeavour to be helpful throughout your booking, from the moment your enquiry is received, through to your stay and well after your return home.
A car is useful if you wish to to explore the numerous activities listed in our tried and tested itinerary.Driving in this part of Spain is relatively easy and enjoyable due to the sparsity of traffic, the numerous polite road users, excellent signage and superb road network.
We are pleased that you are enquiring about coming back to the villa next year for 3 weeks and look forward to that

We are really pleased that you and the children enjoyed your stay at our villa, and that you managed to discover and make full use of some of the many local attractions nearby. It was good to hear that the children made lots of use of our private pool and large private garden. Many of our guests have also passed positive comments on the good value meals and relaxed atmosphere at the clubhouse on the resort, which is walking distance from our villa.
