The Mar Menor Golf Resort was the first Polaris World resort to be opened in 2005, and is located between the Mar Menor, Murcia to the north and Cartagena to the south, all of them within easy driving reach. Situated around the 18-hole golf course, landscaped gardens and various on site facilities are 924 villas, 184 townhouses and 1,150 apartments, all designed by acclaimed architect Melvin Villarroel, as well as a 5-star hotel with spa facilities.
The resort is clean, well organized and meticulously maintained, both on the golf course and in the residential areas. Wide streets and plenty of open spaces give it a relaxed and healthy feel, and in the summer there are plenty of residents and visitors contributing to a warm and friendly atmosphere throughout the 370 acres of the development. Cyclists and joggers enjoy the chance to exercise in the secure surroundings, and there are numerous venues for a relaxing drink or a bite to eat.
Although there are not many street maps to be seen it is fairly easy to find your way around once you get your bearings, and far easier on foot or by bike than in the car!
Sports facilities at the Mar Menor golf resort include communal pools, tennis and paddle-tennis courts and a small gym on the first floor of the commercial centre. The Hotel on the other side of the road offers further sports facilities with its spa and swimming pool.
The clubhouse, which is next to the hotel, offers a number of on-site facilities including a café bar with terrace overlooking the green and additional services such as changing rooms, locker, sauna and pros shop where
you can book your golf and hire golfing equipment together with booking professional teaching. All club house services are available to residents and golf visitors alike.
The on-site shopping centre includes a café bar which offers regular social events and meetings for the residents, a residents’ gym, a small supermarket with a good range of foods and a bank with cash point services.
