Having just returned from a weeks stay in this villa I would rate it highly and definitely consider renting the villa again.
We arrived late on a Saturday evening having driven from Alicante airport. The key holders Paul and Christine were very helpful and the Welcome pack was hugely appreciated. The villa itself is in a nice part of the Mar Menor golf resort. 10 Minutes walk from the supermarket or from the restaurants that sit just outside the resort gates.
We were looking for a villa that advertised a heated pool. Having holidayed in Spain in October before we were looking for a pool that could actually be used in October. This villa more than fit the bill. The weather and the heated pool made our stay. The pool was warm enough to use the entire time we were there.
The weather was warmer than we were expecting and the garden kept the sun from early morning up until almost sun down. The pool was very clean and was cleaned twice while we were there. The Villa itself is in good condition, sporting clean decoration, well proportioned and sleeps 6 comfortably (all rooms are also air conditioned). The facilities in the kitchen were excellent, there is a Wii, a PS2 and a DVD player alongside an HD tv should the children get bored.
The resort itself is spotless and of the restaurants we sampled within walking distance we have no complaints (albeit they may be slightly pricier than you could find in the more competitive tourist resorts.) Los Alcazares is only a 10 minute drive should anyone be looking for more choice but we didn't try Torre Pacheco during our stay.
All in all we really enjoyed our October break and would recommend the Villa.

Just back from nine days in this villa. It was lovely. We arrived late on the first night and the house was really well stocked with food and drinks for us. As we have two small children this was invaluable. The villa was spotless and a great size for a family of five. The sky TV and the DVD were used a lot as the weather was very hot (at least 35) when the kids needed distraction during the day. The only negative was the location, the complex is fabulous with a lovely hotel and supermarket and some nice restaurants near by but quite far away from a resort. This didn't bother us though as we had a car and spent most of the afternoons exploring the region.
