El exclusivo complejo ha sido galardonado en los World Travel Awards, los premios más prestigiosos del sector, conocidos popularmente como los “Oscar” del turismo.

It's not the first time that the resort receives one of these prizes. In fact, it was chosen last year as the Best Luxury Resort and Villas of Europe. The General Director of La Manga Club, Nick Montgomery, explains that these awards are "a reward for the continuous efforts in improving the resort's facilities". Montgomery continues to express that "La Manga Club is known as one of the key destinations out of all the elite sports and leisure resorts in Europe. Obtaining this important acknowledgement shows the great welcome we are receiving throughout Europe, thanks to the quality of our services and the variety of facilities that we offer". 

Other acknowledgements

The new award that has just been added to the rest of those already sown by La Manga Club in the last months. The most recent being the King of Spain's concession and title of “Real Club de Golf La Manga”, a title merely granted to acclaimed golf clubs of more than 25 years old. It was also selected for the prestigious 'canal de noticias CNN' which formed part of the list of the 12 best golf resorts in the world. The Murcian complex is the only Spanish one to be part of this ranking. Factors such as its specially designed golf courses (by authentic authorities or legendary golfers), all the necessary comodities it offers to players for relaxation after a long day practising sport, the unforgettable natural surrounding it finds itself in and its gastronomy have all been taken into account for the rating. In short, visiting the resort over a couple of days is a 'true luxury'. 

Furthermore, the editors of the American magazine 'Golf Digest' rewarded La Manga Club with the ‘Best International Resort’ prize of 2017, and at the start of the year was awarded, for the sixth consecutive year, with the Best Golf Resort in Spain by the British magazine Today’s Golfer, one of the most prestigious on an international level. In addition, La Manga Club has been the only Spanish golf resort to have its three courses positioned between 40 best in the celebrated publication ‘Top 100 Golf Courses’.

With regards to the Principe Felipe 5* Hotel, it has received the Excellency Certificate given by TripAdvisor because of the good reviews shared by users in a systematic manner via the platform about accommodation
