We will certainly return!

Just returned from our family holiday having spent 10 days at Albatros Villa. It was my second stay at the Villa, and the recent improvements made for a fantastic stay.  We were welcomed by Roberto, who was very helpful, and got the kids connected to the all important Wi-Fi. 

The villa is in a great location, nice and quiet, but central to all of the resorts amenities. The villa is very homely and has lots of character. Everything about the villa has a quality feel about it. 

Sheila is a great host and very accommodating. We will certainly return.

A 5 Star stay at Albatros Villa in La Manga Club

Every window has a stunning view, every room clean & comfortable and visually beautiful and stylish.
All amenities in the kitchen, huge bathroom with double sink.
Fabulous Chesney roaring fireplace, huge TV with hundreds of things to watch. Local art on the walls & artisan sculptures.
Lovely walk around the neighbourhood looking at traditional architecture and lemon trees.
Practically perfect in every way.


Thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa

We enjoyed a wonderful week stay in Albatros Villa as a family of four. It was the perfect setting for a relaxed summer holiday. Sheila and her team were great at setting the Villa for us and making sure all was 100%

The villa has amazing views from all three levels, very comfortable beds and a really well equipped kitchen.

We enjoyed the pool hugely, which was a good size for the four of us. We were able to relax in the peaceful area of La Manga Club and would thoroughly recommended this beautiful villa for family or friends.


5 STARS, a wonderful experience, highly recommended!

5 STARS! We have just returned from a wonderful week in the gorgeous Albatros Villa. The villa has everything you could possibly desire. The living room is spacious, with the gorgeous dining terrace overlooking the pool. We love to cook so the kitchen is absolutely perfect and fully equippe. The villa offers a variety of dining experiences inside and out, we loved the BBQ area and upper terrace. The selection of outdoor areas was ideal when you have teenagers, they loved having their own penthouse solarium. In addition, the extensive streaming service with current movies and series was an unexpected added bonus.

We will definitely be back. Thank you Sheila.


5 STARS Excellent - Highly Recommend

Recently stayed in this fabulous Villa which is beautifully decorated with top of the range furnishings, all home comforts catered for.
The views are stunning from the Roof Terrace (which is an added bonus) of the Mountains, Sea and Golf Courses.
Situated in a quiet location, no traffic, convenient and central to all amenities, restaurants, bars and shops.

For a relaxing holiday I happily recommend, you won’t be disappointed.

A real home from home

Beautiful villa with wonderful facilities and amazing views, a real home from home. This is our second visit to Albatros Villa and the improvements we noticed since our last visit are just perfect. The updated kitchen has everything you need to self cater and the outside space is vast. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine and spectacular views. The pool is really clean and a perfect size to keep you cool. The outside furniture is modern and the seating really comfortable. We loved the new showers and bathrooms a really nice update and something to set this villa apart from others! The new bbq area is a great addition and the grill easy to use we had a lovely time cooking while enjoying the views! Sheila and the Housekeepers, Keith and Lorraine are extremely attentive and friendly answering any questions we had promptly. 

Overall we had a fabulous stay and look forward to returning.

Thanks again

We had a fantastic holiday. We would definitely recommend it

We had a fantastic holiday and your lovely villa exceeded our expectations.
It had everything we needed, and more. It was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable.
We would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in La Manga Club.


We had a wonderful stay at Albatros Villa

We had a wonderful stay at Albatros Villa. The villa was so beautiful and the setting was just fabulous. We had our own pool and the different eating/drinking areas were great outside. It was perfect for our family holiday and we will definitely be staying again.


We have just returned from our second visit to the villa and it was every bit as fantastic as we remembered!

We have just returned from our second visit to the villa and it was every bit as fantastic as we remembered! The booking process with Sheila is easy and she always responds quickly with any queries you may have. Similarly, contact with Lorraine (the housekeeper), was effortless. Having the villa cleaned mid stay was great and I also loved the fact that cleaning products such as laundry detergent, was in plentiful supply.

I loved the changes made to the outside-the BBQ area is great and we even cooked a big breakfast fry up on the new hot plate. My new favourite place is the covered seating area at the back of the villa; I read for hours there enjoying the view down to the golf course.

This villa is truly magical and we love visiting here as it feels like home.

The villa is beautiful, very well maintained and well equipped.

We have just got back from our 2nd stay at Villa Albatros. We were meant to be returning in 2020, but due to Covid we had to postpone until this year. Sheila was very flexible and supportive in terms of postponing our stay, and made it as simple as possible to re arrange everything.
The house keepers (Lorraine and Keith) are very helpful. They are in contact before arrival to make sure everything is ready and offer any assistance. They kindly got some pizzas in for our arrival as it was late in the evening and we have 2 young children.

The villa itself is beautiful, very well maintained and well equipped. The outside has also been modified since our last stay, which added extra shade to dine in and some astroturf for the kids to play on. It has everything you need for a wonderful holiday.

The photos don’t do it justice!

'We have recently had 2 weeks at Albatros Villa and can safely say we will consider returning. The setting of the villa with its high standard of décor and prime location make this a special place to stay. The photos do not do it justice and our family of 7 never once felt on top of each other. The external areas to the pool also meant there were quiet spots for relaxing throughout the day, night and an excellent outside cooking area. La Manga itself has all the facilities you need with various restaurants, shops and sports facilities. A car was essential but for meals out on an evening all were within walking distance.
Obviously with the current Covid situation, the communication with Sheila from our original booking to our return home was excellent and answered any of our queries and concerns with very quick responses. The House keepers were also of great assistance as well as giving us information about the area and messaged us with updates throughout the holiday.

A must place to visit in such a lovely Villa.'

Sheila was fantastic to deal with

"We had planned to go to Villa Albatros in August but because of the COVID-19 situation we had to cancel our plans due to two members of our group being vulnerable.

Sheila was fantastic to deal with, offering us a full refund of our deposit which was well received. We will definitely try again next year".

We cannot wait to go next year!

We booked a returning stay at Albatros Villa (as we loved our first stay so much) for August 2020. Sadly, due to covid and the government’s quarantine advice, we could no longer go. Sheila was very understanding about this, and there were no issues in moving our holiday to 2021. Sheila also responded quickly to all communication, including returning our balance payment. We cannot wait to go next year!

Outstanding ★★★★★

We stayed at Albatros Villa in August 2019. We went as 2 families of 4, with children aged 2-9 years. The Villa was perfect, it has ample space both indoor and outdoor. The private pool is one of the highlights, and provided hours of entertainment for the kids! It is presented to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean.
The location in La Manga Club is great. It is very quiet, but within walking distance of a supermarket and restaurants (approx 15mins). We would recommend a car to access the beach, or if you are travelling with young children.
Both Sheila and housekeepers were very helpful during booking and our stay. For example, we forgot to take or request a potty for our toddler, and after asking where we could purchase one, Lorraine delivered one the next day!

Exceptional !!

This was our first time at Albatros villa. The standard of the accommodation is 5* spotless and with such attention to detail it was an absolute pleasure to stay there.

We have 2 teenage children who enjoyed the freedom of having their own pool - and enjoyed the activities the resort and nearby area had to offer ( car recommended).

We particularly enjoyed the beautiful views and secluded seating areas of the villa and would definitely recommend La Manga Club and Albatros villa ”.

Heather and Darren

Superb, stunning, luxurious!

These are just a few words which spring to mind when I think of our recent holiday to this fabulous villa! It looks wonderful in the photos but in fact the reality is even better. The views are amazing and we spent many mornings on the roof terrace having our breakfast and gazing at the mountains, golf course and the sea. There are plenty of areas to hide your self away outside depending on whether you want the sun or shade and all involve lovely comfortable furniture. The inside of this villa is beautifully decorated with the kitchen being particularly well appointed! It was a pleasure cooking a few meals in there as every little detail has been thought of.

I can't rate this villa highly enough: we will definitely be back!!!

This is a 5* Villa

I had the pleasure of staying at Albatros Villa. I have been a regular visitor to La Manga Club, and was extremely happy with my recent stay.
The villa is very high-end, and comfortably looked after my family of 7. The Villa is conveniently located and central to all activities. The views from the villa are equally stunning.
If you are looking for a place to stay, which is quiet, private and of high quality then you should book. The housekeeping was great.

This is a 5* Villa.

Really nice; clean and well located.

5/5 Stayed August 2018, Fiona, Steve, Beth & Dylan. We wanted to book our son into the Chelsea Football week at the La Manga football academy in August, so needed to find somewhere to stay a bit last minute.

Luckily for us, Sheila had just started to re-advertise her villa after carrying out improvements and we were able to secure a week during August 2018.

Sheila was very helpful prior to our visit and has always been very approachable.

The villa was really nice; clean and well located.

La Manga itself has changed a lot since I was last there in the 1980's, but there were plenty of interesting places to eat after a bit of investigation. On the whole, it was very quiet despite being the high season.

We would happily recommend Sheila and her lovely Villa at La Manga Club.
