“Avoid La Bodega at all costs!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Stayed for 2 nights in a Terrace room, using the Living Social deal. This included the room, 50EUR credit to the spa or golf, breakfast and a tapas meal at La Bodega (next to the Tennis Centre, on the La Manga complex). The hotel itself was fine, but the meal at La Bodega was possibly the worst I have ever had. From our seat at the front of the restaurant, we watched the "Chef" microwave every single dish. When we queried this, the waiter said it was all fresh but was just being reheated! The grilled vegetables looked so revolting and overcooked that we couldn't bear to even try them. The stuffed peppers looked like tinned tomatoes, with something inside that may have once been cheese. The garlic chicken was all brown meat and was covered in steaming hot, overcooked potatoes. The Spanish omelette was so dry that it was inedible. When the waiter offered us an extra dish of (microwaved) prawns, we couldn't hide our horror and panic that food poisoning could be a distinct possibility. The waiter moved us on to dessert - a fruit salad that must have been stewing for days, and a dry and cloying cheesecake covered in squirty cream and chocolate sauce. The best thing about the meal was the bread and Manchego cheese - it was the only thing I thought might not make me ill! My advice is to go anywhere but La Bodega, even if you do get a free meal included. It's not worth the risk and over here it would be shut down by the food inspectors very quickly! Very disappointing and sad that La Manga can associate itself with such a dreadful place.

Room Tip: The room had a lovely view of the golf course and a large terrace.

Not the cheapest place to stay, but though an excellent choise for a golfvacation. 3 very good courses to choose from inside the La Manga Club. Great SPA. Lots of good restaurants too. We'll come back!

The hotel was comfortable, stayed to attend a pal's 50th, did not have opportunity to enjoy all of the facilities on the resort.
We had meal in the anteroom off the main restaurant, the food and service were excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is a great base for golfers.

Stayed with family in early January when hotel was quiet, but the service and attention was first class. Played golf and was facilitated at short notice and was very enjoyable. Excellent spa and pool facilities - pity they are not within walking distance !!! Overall enjoyed by all the family.

Excellent rooms, spacious and clean. Breakfast were great on the terrace. Staff very friendly and the walk around the golf course was lovely in the evening.
Was there in October 2011 and the weather was warm during the day. The surrounding area within La Manga club has plenty of shops and restaurant at reasonable prices.
Journey from Murcia airport by hired car was very simple until we get into the complex looking for the hotel sign late at night but we got there eventually.
Overall it is a great place to chill out and I would certainly go again. Can't say what it would be like in summer but in October it was just perfect for quiet and peaceful time. The spa was very good as it was empty and we enjoy it to ourselves. The massage was expensive but good. The restaurant next to the pool in the hotel does very good snack kind of food but a touch expensive but just on the borderline of ok.

Room Tip: If you like quiet then keep away from the pool area and ask for sunny during the day or sunny in the...
