With its beach setting on the Mar Menor Lagoon, this large, resort-style site is ideal for an active holiday. There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, as well as a playground, games room, beach volleyball and minigolf, while the beach offers a range of water sports such as sailing, canoeing and windsurfing. There’s also a gym, sauna and spa treatments for adults. It has neatly arranged, gravel pitches which benefit from privacy but are very sunny.

A speciality of the area is the local mud treatments, which can be booked through reception and are said to have a rejuvenating effect. Those interested in culture will enjoy a trip to the ancient port of Cartagena and the bustling city of Murcia, with its Moorish history and thriving café culture.

A Site to be Avoided

La Manga
An enormous site, 75% occupied by permanently occupied pitches with static caravans hidden behind an large variety of 'structures', some actually bricks and mortar. The touring pitches are rectangular level and all separated by hedges and there a plenty of trees for shade. The touring pitches all have electricity, water and drainage and are separated from the 'shanty town' zone at the top of the site. It is is a long walk from that area to the 'beach' and the restaurant (which is ok). If you are thinking of using this site you should read up about the "Mar Menor"(the large salt water lagoon where this site is located) and the pollution issues. Personally I wouldn't use this site again.

Shockingly poor site

La Manga
We were thinking of booking this site for a couple of months, as one of the hosted winter long stay options for early 2023. We were nearby in April 22, so decided to stop. Thank goodness we did. The site is dreadful. As we drove in to choose our pitch it looked exactly like a shantytown. The site is supposed to be all year, but the shop was shut (possibly for siesta, but I wouldn't expect it to be, no other on site shops have shut at lunchtime) it was so appalling we just drove straight out. When we went to reception to explain they didn't seem surprised. Another couple were doing exactly the same. I have been totally put off any club winter sites if this is the standard chosen for over winter hosted sites. It was 22euro a night, so more expensive than other sites too I think the club really need to reconsider their license. We have never had a bad experience of a club site in the UK and all the sites in Spain have been great, but this was shocking.

Refusal to accept Overseas Site Night Vouchers

La Manga

WARNING: Despite what it may say on the web-site or in Venture Abroad, when we arrived last week (May 2019) they were adamant that they did not and would not accept Overseas Site Night Vouchers. The site itself is spacious and clean (actually eerily empty when we were there!) but is a bit out on a limb and off the beaten track. We would certainly not consider going there again.

Response from the Site: 

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. We must stress that this was a misunderstanding, and a staff training issue. Please be assured we do accept the vouchers.

Shanty Town

La Manga
We were meant to stay 6 nights here but we lasted one. We are fairly traditional caravaners who like a decent pitch, clean facilities and to be close to the beach/town. To be fair this does have all that and if you are looking for somewhere where you have everything on site, and you do not wish to move for the duration of your stay, then this could be the place for you. The site facilities are all in the centre of the site going down in a line one after the other and the pitches are in sections on each side. This site is massive and walking from reception to the beachfront is close to a mile. The reception and shop are at the top, the pool and bar in the middle followed by the football pitch and then finally the restaurant and beach. In between these sections are 2 maybe 3 big car parks - there are literally vehicles everywhere! The pitches come in 2 size and the bigger 100m are in the front sections closest to the beach, but do not expect to be in the front line or indeed to have a sea view from your pitch. As previous reviews said the white gravel and hedges provide privacy, but you are going to be looking over permanent plots which range from static caravans to metal huts to park homes in all stages of cleanliness and use. Some owners have even created 2 floors and have sun terraces. The smaller pitches back away from the beach but are not so close to these array of park homes. The beach looks lovely and tropical with palm trees but you are on a salt lake so you can walk out for miles up to your knees and it gets no deeper and the water is muddy so it is not ideal for swimming. Lots of water sports on offer but we did not try. The bar/restaurant was nice and we listened to a good solo singer perform which was pleasant, but the flies were horrendous and constantly landing on you or your food. We left the restaurant at 11.30pm and went back to our caravan and were kept awake until 2am by lots of screaming kids still playing football. Then in the permanent caravan pitch behind us their dog was barking at anything that moved and then opposite us in the one of the huts 2 men sat outside and talked until 4.30am. It was the night from hell. The next day we went up to reception and said we were moving on very early they asked no questions and gave me a refund without being prompted. It’s big, busy and noisy. It did not feel like a campsite.

Very poor and really scruffy

La Manga

We stayed here January to March 2018 - caravan pitches in certain areas and ( paid for ) wifi ok, restaurant good. Overall this large site is scruffy and areas of the permanent setups look like a shanty town you would find in Africa in the 1960s. The toilet blocks are 30 years out of date and badly maintained, although the cleaning staff work tirelessly to try and keep them clean. Can't really say anything else, except to avoid it.

Response from Site: 

Thank you for your feedback in relation to your stay at Caravaning La Manga. We have taken on board your comments in relation to our sanitary blocks and this year we have made some significant improvements. We have changed the heaters in the blocks and we have improved the hot water capacity. We are also going to be changing the washing machines in each sanitary block.
