Dear Ayesha,

Just wanted to thank you and the team for another perfect stay at Desert Springs.

As usual arrangements were perfect on arrival and during our stay at La Rosa.

June is such a lovely time to come, and we have to say Desert Springs looked as good as ever, particularly the fairways and greens this year.

So relaxing we loved every minute.

Our only decision is not if but when we come again, hopefully we can fit in another visit later this year, but we will be back for our regular visit next June for sure.

Regards

Jim & Frances Stembridge

"Hi Leticia,

I'm sorry we missed you at Desert Springs when we were there but I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you very much for organising our stay at the resort.

We had a great time there and enjoyed our golf.

The food and drink we had at the Restaurant was fabulous and all the staff at the resort were lovely to meet and deal with.

Should we plan to come back to Desert Springs in the future we of course will contact you.

Many thanks once again.

Best regards

Thank you for your assistance with this trip, I am sorry we did not actually get the chance to meet each other.

We had a wonderful weekend and my wife almost convinced me to buy a property!

We will be back.

My stay was also memorable as I had a hole in one while I was there and received a lovely certificate from your resort.

Many thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Kind regards.

“High quality”

A quality resort in all aspects of accommodation, facilities and professionalism and friendliness of staff at all levels.
Return directions to Murcia airport would have been helpful.
Ice cube trays were the only things missing from the apartment.
We would definitely go back next year!

We're at Desert Springs this week for our second visit.

It is a great place for a family holiday.

Despite the fact that it is half term the resort is not overcrowded and there's enough to entertain the kids so that my wife can relax with friends and I can get out on the golf course.

The food is good with some of the menu options changing daily and the service is excellent, staff all speak good English and nothing is too much trouble.

The golf course is in superb condition, but it is a desert course so if you're off the fairways you're in trouble. Take one of their buggies as it can be very hot and carrying clubs only for the young and very fit. Despite half term really no problem getting tee times.

The bigger villas come with private pools, but our 3 bed villa is in a gated area of about 8 villas sharing a pool. Ideal for the kids to make new friends.

Villas are clean, comfortable and well maintained and none of them are more than a few minutes walk from the main restaurant and clubhouse.

There's also the Crocodile Club, which is a larger pool, bar and cafe, with table tennis, tennis courts, giant chess board, basketball hoops, etc.

It's less than 10 min drive to local beaches, supermarket, gokarting and a fantastic waterpark (our kids would happily spend every day there!).

A delightful place and what a great time for a group of people.

Originally disappointed as only one restaurant was open, but it was great, plus we booked the cave bar for a private function which was marvellous.

The staff were great.

I hour and a bit from Murcia airport and a supermarket 5 mins away for supplies.

Rent off them direct and not private as we had a leak and they sorted it.

Golf course was great and shot an 80 with rental clubs so happy.

Would definitely recommend.

“WONDERFUL”

 

It is a very well maintained golf course with very friendly staff & fabulous facilities.
It offers luxurious accommodation with outdoor pools. The Resort has spacious and well-equipped apartments, villas and cottages. Some villas have private pools. 
There are several bars, restaurants, a pool bar, an awesome African-style hut, a gym and a spa, free WiFi and free parking. 
It is a place to switch off or have fun. All very well maintained. 
 
It is located about 3km from Vera, Palomares and Cuevas del Almanzora town.

Auction Surprise

Having bid for this holiday in a charity auction we were pleasantly surprised to find the resort exceed all of our expectations.

The staff were fab.

The breakfast was great and the dinner great value for money.

Great location too for the Coast.

Garrucha has nice bars down at the marina and the tapas was great.

Good Afternoon Leticia,

I just wanted to pass you and all the team at Desert Springs Resort a short message to say thank you very much for taking care of us all last week on our vacation.

The resort was excellent and the facilities & golf course were a pleasure to play.  The next time we visit I hope we can do it when the Crocodile Club is also open.

Please pass on my thanks to Julia (I think!!)……. (she has short brown hair!) at the golf reception for taking care of all the bookings and buggy’s for us.

She was a star, along with the rest of the team.

Thanks again for all of your help before we arrived, and apologies for the many emails I sent with lots of questions! 

Take care and have a great summer.

“Sweet Desert Venue"

My wife and I have recently returned from a 3 night unlimited golf break staying in a one bed apartment and have nothing but praise for an excellent resort.

The accommodation is modern and comfortable.

The apartments are well equipped (with ample free parking) and are situated in a lovely courtyard setting around a good sized pool.

The golf course is in very good condition and we so enjoyed the various challenges.

This was low season for the course so we were able to play 36, 45 and 51 holes of golf.

We did use a buggy (30€) and the battery life meant the buggy was good even for 51 holes. To be honest a buggy is not required and they are restricted to buggy paths but when playing more than 18 holes we found a buggy an advantage.

The bar and restaurant on site is open all day. We did not take breakfast there but the evening meal was very good and represented great value for money in a lovely setting.

There is a gym which is available at a small supplement. We did not use the gym but from looking through the window it looked large with various machines and free weights.

Service could not be faulted.

From the moment we arrived at reception and were personally taken to the apartment to the friendly service in the restaurant and on the course we were made to feel genuinely welcome.

Top marks, Desert Springs.


Until the next time, thanks to all.

Just a quick note to say what a wonderful time my friends and I had Desert Springs. 

We were totally relaxed and refreshed. 

The restaurant food and staff were wonderful and we enjoyed playing tennis.

Even though we are not golfers we would love to return one day to the resort.

Townhouses at Las Sierras IV

 

Peter,

"The reason for this mail is to thank Desert Springs for the way they dealt with the sale of the above property to my wife Angie and myself.

The whole process was seamless from beginning to end, and this was largely due to your Commercial Manager Paul Gutierrez and Natalia Ruffinelli Gonzalez.

Paul recommended to us a first class solicitor (Paloma Moreno-Torres) who looked after our interests both with the bank and at the Notary, Paul also explained to us all the purchase costs and at the end of the day, he was about right with his estimate.

Natalia Project Managed the installation of the kitchen magnificently, taking on board all the changes requested by Angie, who now loves the kitchen.

The overall result is that Angie and I are now the proud owners of a top of the range Town House on a Five Star Resort and we both look forward to spending as much time as we can out there.

Thanks again to you and your staff."

Best regards,

Allan
