Going to a place called Cabo Roig in the Summer......it's near Torrevieja. Anyone been? We've never tried here before!
Got flights on the day they came out last year and for all 6 of us was only £450 flying from Manchester to Murcia.
Booked a villa type place off Holiday Rentals which was a bargain for 3 bedrooms.
Haven't done a package holiday for 10 years now. Love to chill out of a night whilst the kids are in bed.
never been to the place you mentioned but spent a lot of time in the general area as my parents own a house about 15 mins north of torrevieja (think you're about the same distance to the south?).
the night market in torrevieja is good and there's plenty of restaurants and bars about, it's not crazy on night life either (no drunks stumbling about at all hours) so a pretty child friendly place. there's also a carnival there which i think i permanent throughout the summer months. some decent shopping there too.
if you can get to alicante try go to alicante castle.
there's also a place up in the mountains about 2-3 hours drive away depending on which side of torrevieja you're on (that was years ago though, i'm sure with the new motorways it'll be quicker now), called guadalest. it's an old castle/fort kind of thing with a little tourist village and some restaurants. nice day trip and if you leave early enough in the morning you can have lunch overlooking the valley (google it) then stop off at the drive through safari just outside benidorm on your way back, which i'm sure the kids will enjoy.
umm... guadamar is a nice little seaside city which is pretty authentic and every summer they hold the moors and christians parade there with a massive fireworks display. about 30 mins drive from torrevieja.
villa martin is over on your side of torrevieja i think. good for some grub and a drink... it's an urbanización with a golf course and the main part is a massive courtyard 3 stories high full with restaurants and bars.
there's plenty of other things to do but that's just off the top of my head. if you don't have a car or transport then i apologise for wasting your time and please disregard my post
