If you have had the opportunity to read my latest post, you will know that thanks to the Institute of Tourism of the Region of Murcia and Destinia , I had the privilege of enjoying some wonderful days knowing and enjoying La Manga del Mar Menor and its surroundings . A fantastic experience that will remain in my memory for a lifetime. The pain, as always, was the tight schedule that we usually carry in this type of travel. In the end you always leave in the inkwell wonderful places to discover. But looking at it on the positive side, it is the perfect excuse to return to this wonderful and welcoming land. And as it is something I plan to do shortly, I have no doubt where I will stay when I return to Murcia: at the La Torre Golf Resort & Spa Hotel .
This spectacular 5-star establishment is located in the municipality of Torre-Pacheco, close to the Sierra de la Cadena and only 15 minutes from La Manga. Perfect as a “base camp” to disconnect and combine beach, interior, sports, health and gastronomy.
Overview of the Hotel La Torre Golf Resort & Spa
Closed for some time, the new owners of the Hotel La Torre Golf Resort & Spa, took over the management a few months ago with the idea of relaunching it and positioning it as a benchmark in the Region of Murcia. I am convinced that they will achieve it, and more knowing the human team that works on it.
Its 133 rooms, including an incredible royal suite and two presidential suites, are of course equipped with everything necessary to make our stay perfect and pleasant. All are quite spacious and include a terrace or balcony overlooking the golf course (the sunrises from them are photo). Peace and silence guaranteed in our rest 365 days a year.
I would also highlight its bathrooms (with shower and bathtub), a space that with age, I am giving more importance in hotels. In addition to its size, I usually fix on the amenities, water pressure, laundry … and in this hotel there is no fault.
And do not worry about the internet connection: there is free wifi in all your rooms.

But accompany me and I give you a small summary of all the services offered by this wonderful hotel:
Pure SPA La Torre
Newly renovated, the SPA of the Hotel La Torre is one of its strong points. Divided into three areas (wellness, SPA and fitness), we can enjoy the greatest relax that we can imagine with the help of its excellent professionals.
Within your wellness space, facial and body treatments, as in almost all establishments, are by prior reservation, an important fact to consider if we plan to use any of the five rooms available.
To relax in our air, I recommend you to try your great SPA by completing a complete circuit starting with its 25-meter heated pool, combining it with your sauna, steam bath, ice fountain and multi-sensory showers. A luxury, right?

The indoor pool measures 25 meters
Your Fitness space, as you can see in the photo below, is modern and perfectly equipped with the latest cardiovascular and bodybuilding machinery. The gym has direct access to the indoor pool. The perfect place to disconnect and activate our endorphins.
It is not surprising that many sports teams choose this hotel to do their preseason.

If I told you previously that the SPA was one of the strengths of this hotel, the cuisine offered in the four rooms dedicated to this divine pleasure, is really wonderful. And this is the fault of its star chef Tony Pérez , a true master at the kitchen, with an enviable curriculum obtained after going through some of the best restaurants on the national and international scene. If you suffer from any type of allergy or intolerance, there is no problem: let us know in advance and they will give you several alternative options to your letter.
To start the day with energy, nothing better than to gather strength with the full breakfast served at the Ginkgo restaurant . Those who follow me through the networks know my fondness for good food and how I enjoy it, especially in the breakfast of hotels. And if they have live cooking like at the Hotel La Torre Golf Resort & Spa, they have won me for life. To thank the variety of freshly squeezed fresh juices (when they will learn other hotels).
In the Ginkgo Restaurant you can enjoy a full and delicious breakfast
For informal moments, it is best to visit Al Fresco Bar & Grill , a space located on the hotel terrace, next to the outdoor pool. In it we will enjoy, among other things, delicious salads and a fun selection of paellas and rice dishes. This space is open according to season.
If you simply want to enjoy a good wine or cocktail, accompanied by a rich tapa, it is best to visit their bar La Vinoteca . As they have a wide cellar that includes broths from almost all continents, it is best that you do what I did: let yourself be advised by your room manager. Surely it hits with your preference and taste.

And to delight you like real kings, drop by their Restaurant La Vinoteca . As Tony Perez explained to us, in this gastronomic temple the local genre is the protagonist, choosing the best seasonal products of the area. Authentic kitchen “Kilometer 0” elaborated with care.
The result, as it can not be otherwise, are delicious dishes, wonderfully prepared and absolutely exquisite. Highlights: the tomato tartar with burrata and truffle cream, the tuna tartar with guacamole and mango, the corvina ceviche, the lamb ravioli and tamarind sauce, the fried octopus with yucca cream and fruit jam or the spectacular tacos cochinita pibil de chato with sweet potato and guacamole (one of the dishes that I liked the most).

It should be noted that the golf course does not belong to the hotel, but has preferential agreements for its guests. Although this is so, due to the proximity and the gastronomic quality of this accommodation, many of the players who enjoy this course use the hotel as if it were the Club House.
But in addition, lovers of this sport are lucky. In addition to enjoying the golf course of this urban complex, the Hotel La Torre Golf Resort & Spa also has other preferential agreements with 6 other golf courses nearby, some of them considered TOP in Spain. Perfect for long stays in the hotel and combine this hobby in different fields. These are: Serena Golf, La Manga Club, Roda Golf, Hacienda del Álamo, Altorreal Golf and Aguión Golf.

Meetings and Events
If all these services that I have told you, we add its more than 1000 square meters of surface area divided into four rooms, makes the Hotel La Torre Golf Resort & Spa is the perfect place to hold any meeting, incentive, congress or event. Do not hesitate to ask for a personalized quote from your sales team.
I have no doubt: my next stay in Murcia will be again the Hotel La Torre Golf Resort & Spa
Before finalizing, I have to put special emphasis on the human team of the Hotel La Torre Golf Resort & Spa. It is normal to think that in a hotel with these characteristics, its staff has to be up to the task, but we all know that, unfortunately, this is not always the case. In this case, I can assure you that, without realizing it, you will verify that everything works like a Swiss watch. And always with an exquisite education and a permanent smile in each and every one of its employees, which helps and a lot to enjoy even more of our stay. He was chained by Mr. Padina, his manager, and by all his department heads.
