Family (the eldest child is at school)
Bed mattresses' were rock hard and two pillows would be better. More plates, etc in the kitchen would improve the experience too - no mugs.

Pool was great - no issue with Sunbeds.

Sunbeds for the apartment would be great.

Back door key would be convenient.

Essex Family (the eldest child is at school)
Having stayed at Mar Menor for over 10 years now in various villas, this by far lacks in quality.

On arrival we are greeted with a musty smell of damp which the owners have tried to cover up with by placing air freshers everywhere!

Furnishings inside villa are old and need replacing. Both sofas smell unpleasant! Upstairs in main bedroom there is a small double bed, every villa we have previously stayed in has been King size.

Villa was cleaned twice during our holiday.

Outside was disappointing. The most cheapest and uncomfortable outdoor plastic furniture is used. For a supposedly high spec villa this is just not on.

No hosepipe so if the patio area needs cleaning down a bucket has to be used!

View of gold course is obscured by large overgrown tree, although view is better from roof terrace.

On one side is a derelict villa and awful smells drift across from it. On the other side is the noisiest neighbours imaginable, we asked them to keep the noise down and after an altercation the noise did reduce significantly.

As the villa is up for sale which could explain why it isn't one of the best on the resort.

Northampton Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely villa, on a lovely resort. Los Alcazares nearby is a nice town to visit and you are only half an hour drive from Cartagena and Murcia for a couple of day trips.
Villa was nicely furnished and the only reason for the slightly lower score on the pool was due to the odd shape which meant doing a breaststroke kick resulted in sore toes! But a very small negative in the overall holiday.
The children were sad to leave the villa - we had a fabulous time at Villa Ruby.

Woking Family (the eldest child is at school)
Villa was ok but in need of improvements. Patio had loose slabs on it, very dangerous and my daughter tripped in one and hurt her foot. The office was informed on the day after we arrived but nothing was done. Furnishing need updating, we have stayed in a better villa for the same money. Information from the owners need updating, very out of date. Love the complex it was our third time back. Cleaning is good, but outside area needs cleaning more often and weeds need removing from pipes.

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Villa was lovely, spacious and clean. Air con was very efficient and kept the inside cool even when it was boiling outside!

Pool was big enough even if not huge. 3 kids could play no problem.

A few more glasses and other kitchen items would be nice. Not sure 1 wine glass and a broken bottle opener was enough!

BBQ outside was great and it was lovely to cook and stir under cover at the outside table.

The midweek bedding change was a nice surprise too!

The resort was good although realistically the only place to eat was the hotel restaurants. The communal pool had loungers and umbrellas and all you had to do to get entry was buy a drink!

You can't use the hotel pool (even if willing to pay)
