Things are really busy at Roda Golf, with summer now in full swing.

We also have some amazing properties for sale so, If you are considering purchasing your new property at Roda Golf in Murcia, please contact us right away, and direct, on 00 34 680 842 895 (or, we have the largest selection of resale properties and we are the number one agent for Roda Golf, just look at this amazing bargain right here - Property of the month!

we recently helped some clients purchase their first property in Spain and this is what Paul Smith from Australia (now living in London) had to say about his experience earlier in 2014...

“I recently purchased a property on Roda golf on recommendations from a couple of friends who had bought in the area of Murcia southern Spain. I first went to Murcia in January 2014 as a friend of mine (who had been hounding me to go out there and see for myself for probably 2 years) was going out there with the intention of purchasing a second property in the area. I wasn't sure what to expect however I went with an open mind (with a hint of scepticism) however we arrived on a Thursday night and stayed in a lovely hotel in Los Alcazares for our three night stay. I had also arranged to meet some agents (over the internet namely Chersun Properties Paul Cherry and Stuart Thomas of Calida International Properties) and some agents through my friend to view as many properties as possible while I was there to see what the area was like and also what was on offer.

In the 3 days we were there I visited around 30 properties on many different golf resorts as it was a Golf resort that appealed hence was my main requirement based on a community feel as well as first class facilities. I had visited 6 different Golf resorts when on the final day I was introduced to Stuart Thomas from Calida International who showed me around Roda Golf and also Serena Golf (Stuart Thomas was recommended as the Roda Golf expert and the exclusive agent for Serena Golf)

Stuart was very knowledgeable in terms of the area and also about the buying process and the market generally given Stuart has lived in the area for over 10 years. I found Stuart to be a no nonsense type of guy who was there to help and do his best to assist me with my requirements. This was very refreshing as rather than showing me a whole lot of properties that didn't really meet my requirements (in the hope I may find something) he stuck to a handful which suited my requirements thereby not wasting my time or his which given we were in the region for a small amount of time was exactly what I needed. Stuart seemed to be able to assess from a brief chat exactly the type of property I was after in terms of the full wish list. I am a person that knows what he wants and when I see something I like I have always move quickly to clinch the deal. When I returned to the UK my mind was buzzing with positivity of the Region as the infrastructure (Roads / Towns etc.) are “first class” not to mention the general feel and buzz of the place, as my three day visit was way above expectation hence fell in love with the Region probably due to its simplicity, friendly people and first class facilities and abundance of things to do.

I therefore selected a short list of 8 properties from what I had seen (on my 3 day visit) as I was as “keen as mustard” to become involved in the area. Although i had seen some great properties, none of the eight on my short list had the wow factor but they were nevertheless fine properties. I have previously, some years ago almost committed to buying in Vilamoura (Portugal) in 2007 (as I have been playing golf in Vilamoura for over 10 years but prices there were a lot more expensive even though the facilities and what was on offer in the Murcia region are very similar. The entry level in Murcia compared to Vilamoura, Portugal is very different yet the two areas in my view offer pretty much the same type of life with golf in abundance, fantastic shopping, beautiful beaches, fine food, friendly people and the list goes on.....not to mention beautiful cities or small towns with endless character.

I stayed in contact with Stuart Thomas (as I was keen to not miss an opportunity) and I found Stuart to be the most knowledgeable agent who understood my requirements. Within a couple of days of my return Stuart emailed me with another couple of properties (which had yet to be listed) that came on the market so within a week I was on a plane back out there to see what else was on offer. Given I only spent a few hours with Stuart on our final day, my enthusiasm was sky high as I could see there was a lot more to see in the area as my initial 3 day visit wasn't enough.

I met up with Stuart again and he showed me four properties on Roda Golf as this was my target resort given the quality of the build, facilities, the golf course and closeness to the beach ticked pretty much all the boxes.

I viewed a couple of penthouses and also some ground floor apartments however the one that caught my eye was a penthouse on Phase 3 which has stunning views (360 degrees) and a lovely communal pool.

Having viewed other penthouses on Roda this apartment was the stand out by far. I then put an offer in and within an hour the deal had been done. I was one happy man as this apartment is to be our main summer abode for years to come.

I had not previously purchased in Spain however I have bought property in France back in 2006 hence there was trepidation given the buying process in France is very complex and long winded. Stuart offered legal services through a local company, so I took up the offer and to my surprise the whole process was a dream from day one to the day we completed. The buying process in the Murcia region was very simple, uncomplicated and most importantly the contracts were in both Spanish and English. So on my second visit to the Murcia region with 10 days i had purchased a property. It was quick but I had no qualms at all as Stuart had allayed all fear (given I had heard and read of some horror stories) however Roda Golf is a well established resort which is growing in popularity even in the short period that I have been involved. Within two months we had completed and we are now enjoying our new apartment.

I thank Stuart Thomas for his advice and support through the whole process as I never dreamed that buying property could be that simple, I definitely recommend anybody considering purchasing property at Roda Golf, or anywhere in the Murcia region, to contact Stuart Thomas at Calida International Properties in the first instance, you will not be disappointed and he makes everything so easy!

My wife visited with me a couple of days after we completed and she was extremely impressed with the Region and the resort (given we have been going to Portugal for our annual summer holidays for years).

Paul Smith”

Now that is the kind of news we like to report and we do have many more stories like this one, hopefully we can assist you next, please contact us for more information.

We can also confirm some very good sales have been made this year at Roda Golf, and in the region generally. It's too early to get carried away, but this is surely great news for the local economy.

August 2010 update - Getting busy on Roda Golf!

Roda busier than everMore news from Roda Golf where things are busy for the Summer, and some clients are switching their properties to get themselves into their home in the sun right now! Click here to read more, and optionally leave a comment! Read this article, and optionally leave a comment

It has been quite a while since our last update, we have had such a busy summer to date and it is still only mid August, apologies to all those people who look forward to our updates, normal service will be resumed in September.

Busier than ever!

Roda Golf is very busy at the moment. August is always manic, but it seems there are more people around this year than previously. Maybe because there are more properties that have been completed, and therefore more people visiting and enjoying their lovely new property.

The rental numbers are up on last year. That may be because there are a number of long term tenants now on Roda Golf -and so there's actually a shortage of properties! Particularly through July and August, but whatever the reason it's surely great news.

Phase 4A has now been completed and lots of people are moving in. It's good to see so many international removals companies delivering furniture, I have seen trucks from Sweden, Norway, the UK and the usual suspects in Spain.


It is official now that Murcia Furniture located on the C3319 near Corvera are closing down, unfortunately another company affected by the recession, should anybody have any issues or general enquiries regarding this company, please feel free to send in an e-mail and I will do my best to answer any and all enquiries.

Our preferred furniture partner DFS in San Javier, are very much open for business, and as far as I can tell still keeping busy. Their comprehensive after sales service is the best I have experienced, and I can highly recommend them. For any help please contact them directly on (0034) 968 334 194.

New bar!

New bars are always good news! The Roda Golf clubhouse has had the rooftop solarium converted to a new bar and disco area, there is live music, dancing till late, and a fantastic atmosphere on the weekends, the views are outstanding and just yet another reason why Roda Golf is fast becoming the most desirable place to holiday in all of Spain.

The golf course

The golf course is looking absolutely amazing, the course is very busy, and has enjoyed record visitors throughout the summer. We now have the FSB (The Federation of Small Businesses in the UK) hosting their annual golf competition here at Roda Golf (in September), so the profile for Roda Golf is being raised all the time.

Swiching your property

A number of people are now not prepared to wait for their phase 4B properties to be built, and are actually discussing the option of taking another “key ready” property on Roda Golf. We have been very busy helping these clients. One such couple are newly weds Rob and Gail Henderson - many congratulations on getting married - and congratulations on eventually finding your holiday home in the sun! Please see the photo below of Rob and Gail on their solarium of their fantastic new penthouse apartment.

If there are any other clients in a similar position who are not sure of their options, please contact us here and we will try to help resolve your concerns. We work very closely with the developer and are having fantastic results for our clients.

Selling your property?

If there is anybody on Roda Golf currently thinking of selling their property, please contact us here as we are now having a number of enquiries coming in from people looking to purchase on Roda Golf, obviously the market is still pretty flat, however it's definitely showing some signs of improvement, and we would like more properties to advertise.

Nobody presents your property for sale better than us, please visit our main web site here at

Looking to buy?

Also for those people looking to purchase on Roda Golf, there has never been a better time to buy,. There are some fantastic bargains about, some incredible properties available, and very low interest rates for mortgages. We have our own in-house mortgage service at and the exchange rate is now going the right way for UK buyers!

May report - Summer is here again!

Summer arrives on Roda GolfSummer is here! And not only is Phase 4 now ready to go, but the golf course is looking fantastic! Click here to read more, see the gallery with 36 pictures and optionally leave a comment! Read this article, and optionally leave a comment

Phase 4 ready to go!

Welcome to the latest report on web site. Yes it is phase 4 of Roda Golf yet again, but it is looking great! The very good news is that phase 4 is ready! The very first owners are all set to complete their purchases from June 8th. Yes it has been a long wait, but I am certain you will think the wait was worth it - Just have a look at the photos below.

The build quality is excellent, our colleagues arranging snagging services are very pleased with the build quality - and indeed the quality of all finishing.

As previously reported, the rooms are larger than properties on other phases, and there is a lot more light as a result of the extra windows.

The outside and communal areas are now showing early signs of growth, with all grassed areas actually showing a good covering of grass. Phase 4 is the only area with children's swimming and paddling pools. This is a great advantage. The swimming pools have now been cleaned, and are ready for use, and looking beautiful.

Hopefully you can get a good idea of all the space in and around the communal areas from the photos below. It is looking wonderful - a little bit of rain is required (sorry sun worshipers) along with the usual mixture of sunshine we normally get this time of year. These gardens are going to look amazing in maybe 6 - 8 weeks at most.

Beach Club now open and the golf course looking fantastic

We have more good news! The Roda Golf Beach Club is now open and all enquiries regarding the beach club opening times and travel arrangements should be directed to the Roda Golf Rentals dept. or the Roda Golf club house.

We are hoping that with Phase 4 now completed, the Beach Club now in it's second full year of business, the economic recovery starting (yes we know it is going to be slow) and the golf course the busiest in the region - that Roda Golf is going to be well and truly "on the map" for you golf lovers!

The golf course itself is now in the best condition we have known it, and it is looking fantastic. For more information regarding any of the facilities or properties for rent at Roda Golf, please just go to or contact us directly here on

Mini market

Finally we would like to say a big thank you to Paul and Sue Lawrenson who run the mini market on Roda Golf and Beach Resort. They provide a very comprehensive and invaluable service to Roda Golf residents and guests, and you are always guaranteed a very friendly welcome whenever you visit the mini market.

Paul and Sue will be the first ones to say it has been a long, and economically tough, winter, however with Whitsun around the corner, the summer is well and truly here!

They have an excellent range of essentials like beer, wines, spirits (just kidding) but they do have an excellent range of basic provisions, also newspapers and magazines, frozen foods, fresh bread and pastries, ice creams and ice lollies, as mentioned beers, wines and spirits as well as beach goods for the kids. they even have an excellent book lending service and toys and games as well.

January update and news from Phase 4

Roda Golf Pahase 4So here we are already in 2010! Time flies! This month we have a report about Phase 4, including a little gallery, and we offer some general advice for those people waiting for their home to be completed here on Roda golf. Click here to see the gallery, and optionally leave a comment! Read this article, and optionally leave a comment

Happy New Year to everybody and apologies once again for delayed update. It has been a very hectic Christmas holiday and start to the new year, I can't believe we are almost in to February!

Anyway, I must start off by saying what a fantastic New Years Eve party we had at the Roda Golf clubhouse, a big thank you to Graham Sanders for organising our particular group of about twenty-five people. We all had a wonderful evening as well as the obligatory headache the next day.

A special thank you to all the staff at Collados at the Roda Clubhouse. There has been some negative comments regarding the service and indeed the unfriendly attitude of the staff in recent months, some of it deserved, however they all made a superb effort and were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. A wonderful evening was had by all, and I strongly recommend you try to attend next year if possible - my wife and I will certainly be there.

Anyway, on to the Roda Golf update. We have been getting lots of enquiries regarding the progress on Phase 4, obviously there are many concerned owners awaiting completion of their property which is already well overdue, possibly 12-18 months late already.

There has not been much progress on the construction on Phase 4 for some months. However there is small crew working there at present (29th January). They are mainly roofers putting the roofs on the "Brisa" style apartments. The cranes are working away, lifting materials to the workers up on the roof. I have also spotted electricians and plumbers working intermittently.

There is no doubt work is very slow. However reports that there is no work of any kind happening at present is incorrect. There are about eight workers on-site at present and they seem to be working all week, but I must stress that work does seem to be progressing rather slowly.

There are photographs here to go with the update. These show definite improvements on the previous Phase 4 photos in September, but still some way to go.

A number of our regular visitors are asking questions of a legal nature, and I can only say that you must speak to your lawyer or legal expert for contractual advice, as we are simply not qualified to advise. If I can be of any assistance to anybody who has purchased on Phase 4 and is uncertain of what is happening, or are simply not receiving any information, please feel free to contact me anytime. Please contact me - Stuart Thomas anytime on (00 34) 680 842 895 and I will be happy to take your call and help if possible.

Some other news - The golf course is still in excellent condition. Resident golfers Danny Reilly and Graham Sanders provide me with regular updates on the course condition and everything looks great. The weather is much better now, and the golf course has been packed for the last three days so that is excellent news! The golf clubhouse has also been very busy, and helping to create a great atmosphere for all.

A very important meeting for owners has just taken place at the offices of the Housing Association. As soon as we have any news of the outcome we will do our best to update you. For anybody wanting news now, I would suggest you contact your community committee or the Housing Association and ask for Marisol.

There are a number of enquiries starting to come in from people looking to purchase property at Roda Golf which is excellent news. It is still very much a buyers market, but it looks like things are starting to turn around at last.We do have a fantastic selection of resale properties available and we are able to provide full mortgage services for anybody looking to buy property at Roda Golf, please visit our web site at My web guys tell me that this link will show you just our Roda property- Roda Golf property for sale

In my opinion there has never been a better time to purchase property in the Murcia region, and as the number one agent for Roda Golf, we do have the very best selection of properties available at Roda Golf and it would be our pleasure to help you with your property purchase requirements at Roda Golf and Beach Resort.

We also have some fantastic properties available direct from the developer with superb and exclusive benefits.

Roda Sports facilities and Phase 4 progress

We are back with some more great news for Roda Golf owners and fans - The Sports facilities are all but finished, and the Phase 4 apartments are cracking along with 50 guys working around the clock. We have TWO galleries waiting for you, and would love to hear your comments!Click here to see the galleries, and optionally leave a comment! Read this article, and optionally leave a comment

Hi everybody, apologies for the delay in updating the only information web site for Roda Golf and Beach Resort. We have been very busy providing updates for the sister resort at Corvera Golf and Country Club which is making fantastic progress.

The Summer is well and truly here - and wow is it hot! We have some great news and photos to accompany the report on the new sports facilities and phase 4 apartments.

Firstly the new Sports facilities. We have taken some great new pictures showing the new tennis court, the paddle tennis courts (mixture of squash and tennis played with large paddle bats and tennis balls), the multi purpose sports pitch with basket ball courts and hoops, and soccer pitch with goals.

All are now completed along with the new access road and car park facilities. There are changing rooms along with a children's play area and lots of lovely landscaping, all over looking the signature hole - The par 3 7th to the island green, with great views across the lake to the clubhouse.

It all looks absolutely fabulous and will be ready for use 1st July, although it might be a bit warm for all that exercise! "Mad dogs and Englishmen" springs to mind (along with the occasional Welshman)

The Phase 4 apartments are well under construction and not much to report here other than to say just look at the photos, the progress is amazing and it looks different everyday, there are 3 permanent cranes as well as a number of smaller ones, concrete trucks in and out all day as well as about fifty guys working around the clock.

Phase 4 is really starting to look tremendous and we all expect this phase to be fantastic. It enjoys the lowest density of building on the resort at Roda Golf as well as the much awaited phase 4 "Brisa" style apartments. Yes, there has been quite a big delay, but it is going to be worth the wait of that we are sure.

Finally, there have been some dramatic and fantastic changes and improvements at the Roda Golf Beach Club and we will have an update with photos very soon, it is now open and already some very positive comments have been forwarded to us.

I hope you enjoy this latest report with photos, all feedback greatly appreciated, please also pay particular attention to our new Roda Golf services brochure which you can download below. We are happy to help with every aspect of your completion of your new property at Roda Golf or to provide a professional management service with rentals if you are already an owner at Murcia's newest and best golf resort here at Roda Golf and Beach Resort!

We'll be back in a week or two with another update, and we have a small video of Phase 4 construction too!

Happy Summer everyone - Stuart Thomas - Calida International Properties

Great news from Roda Golf - Especially for Phase 4 owners!

Phase 4 construction surging aheadOur belated first report of the year is good news all around, especially for owners on Roda Golf's Phase 4! Our full gallery of more than 50 images covers the whole of the Phase 4 villas which are looking stunning! Click here to see the gallery, and optionally leave a comment! Read this article, and optionally leave a comment

Hello everybody, I know it is a little late seeing as January is pretty much gone but, Happy New Year and let's all hope for a healthy and prosperous 2009, even though the press are doing their very best to dampen everybody's spirits, we have some excellent news for all you Roda Golf owners out there.

Firstly we are delighted to report that the Christmas and New Year celebrations at the Roda Golf clubhouse were a huge success, particularly the New Year party. The staff as always were superb, the food and drinks were very good, the disco and all the dancing was very entertaining, and we can report a number of headaches on New Years day.

The Roda Golf course has been very busy over the whole holiday period with tourists and local golfers enjoying the superb golf course and facilities that Roda Golf has to offer. So many people were commenting on the fact that this is the best golf course in the area - we should all be pretty excited about that! Roda Golf is well and truly "on the map". Roda Golf is the best resort in the Murcia region and it is responsible for attracting people to the stunning Costa Calida.

As a result of all the visitors to the resort, property enquiries in the sales office and through our main sponsor Calida International Properties have been very good, surprisingly so which is another very encouraging sign despite these bleak economic times, we always say, "the cream will always float to the top" and Roda Golf is the best around.

Now we hear you saying, "what about the commercial centre? what about phase 4? what about the hotel?" OK, calm down, now for the real good news:

Work on the commercial centre will begin very soon, February looks like the month when it will all begin, a number of businesses are already contracted to run bars, restaurants and other businesses and the real good news is that there will be a mini supermarket located next to the sales office in the old temporary clubhouse, that is being renovated right now and hopefully it will be available very soon.

The car park is being extended. There are a few tractors and lorries working at present, this is as a result of feedback from owners and visitors to Roda Golf about the walk from the car park to the clubhouse, that will be much shorter very soon, and it will tidy up a large part of the"unfinished area that is fenced off and this will "tie in" nicely with the work about to commence on the commercial area and sports facilities.

Phase 4 at Roda has been quite an emotive subject, well even more good news is that work is about to commence as early as next week, the construction company is moving on site to commence work on phase 4 A right now, the apartments will join up with phase 3 all the way down to the 2nd entrance, these apartments are scheduled for completion in the first part of 2010, we recognise that this is later than initially estimated but these things happen, no point looking back, phase 4 is well and truly on the way.

Of the phase 4 front line golf villa's, they are all but completed and they look wonderful, great views and with the additional benefit of having solar panels for the water, so great for keeping costs down and excellent for the environment. We made the villas the subject of this months full gallery! Our photographer took pictures right the way along the front and then back along the rear of the properties, which were absolutely beautiful, especially the ones with gardens already bedding in. You can see all this in the pictures below and on Flickr. You can see over the road where construction on the apartments is about to start. We are going back with our photographer very shortly to take pictures of the apartment construction, and we will be following this, on your behalf, very closely.

Phase 4, with the new style of apartments (the "Brisa" and "Cantil") looks like being very exclusive, the lowest density of properties on the Roda Golf resort and with the duplex "Brisa Style" apartments we feel there is going to be a high demand for properties in this area.

Roda Golf still have some beautiful properties available on phase 4 (not too many) and our sponsors Calida International Properties will be very happy to help anybody wishing to enquire about purchasing property on phase 4, they have also asked us to mention that they have some of the best resale properties currently available on the Roda Golf resort with some amazing offers. It's thanks to their generosity that we can follow developments for you so closely, we encourage our readers to check their Roda resales with this link: Roda Golf resale properties.

Finally the hotel - this has been reported by Calidona that the hotel will not be started until the end of 2009 at the earliest. Let's be realistic, this is not the time to spend millions of euros on a project this size when the world economies are in such a turmoil. The exchange rate is terrible which will inevitably affect tourism, so we agree it is the right decision to hold off for the time being, at least until the global financial situation improves, as soon as we hear any different we will report as always, please remember a very wise person once said "this too shall pass" things will get better!

Well we hope you like these latest photos and this first update of 2009, once again we would like to wish everybody a very happy New Year and a very, very healthy, wealthy and prosperous 2009, please feel free to leave your comments on this or any other article on this web site, only positive comments please, go to everybody's favourite "moan" site to leave the negative stuff, please remember we are here to help you and provide as much information as possible.

Phase 3b and a general report for August 2008

In our August 2008 report we give the news and views on the state of Roda Golf right now. Including an in-depth look at the newly opened Phase 3b, and the reason that owners in this area are going to very happy! Plus we have a full gallery of Phase 3b pictures. Click here to see the gallery, and optionally leave a comment! Read this article, and optionally leave a comment

Welcome to the August update for Roda Golf and Beach Resort, apologies for the delay, however we have been very busy over the summer, literally thousands of people (owners and visitors) have been coming to Roda Golf to enjoy the fine weather. The vast majority have been having an absolutely fantastic time, we have been swamped with the amount of people requesting pictures of their own part of the resort and their individual properties, our main sponsors Calida International Properties have been busy showing lots of potential buyers around the resort and lot's of people have been completing on their new property on phase 3a - and now we are all set for the completions on phase 3b to begin!

September and October are also going to be very busy months for Roda Golf with hundreds of people completing on their properties on phase 3b - yes there has been considerable delays, but we believe it has all been worth waiting for. We have noted some negative comments on various web forums regarding Roda Golf and the beach club (we all know which forum) however in our humble opinion, the beach club is fantastic. Yes there is still a small amount of work to be done, very minor and mainly cosmetic, however what a fantastic facility and a great day out, we love it!!

As for Roda Golf generally, this is definitely a case of "you cannot please all the people all of the time" we wanted a golf clubhouse, and we now have the best clubhouse in Spain; We wanted the beach club, it is ready, up and running. The restaurant service could be better, but great food and great location, the golf course is already recognised as one of the best in the region; Rentals are up on last year, the facilities definitely show an improvement on last year. We have the PGA golf academy with it's excellent golf pro-shop and facilities now available. People wanted cheaper golf for the occasional golfer, Roda introduced the "twilight game" 36 euros for 18 holes, a small beer and a tapa (Spanish snack). This represents the best value for money anywhere for this standard of golf course!

...On to phase 3b, we had a comprehensive walk around phase 3b, we also took lot's of pictures, as we always do, and we certainly hope you enjoy this latest batch of photo's. We are very pleased with the progress, the apartments all have great views, most have views of the golf course. The penthouse apartments all have the concrete stairs, a fantastic feature, and whilst it has taken a small amount of usable space from the terrace, the ease of access to the rooftop solarium is adequate compensation and all very private.

Excellent communal garden areas with wonderful swimming pools of various shapes and sizes. These are low density communities with lot's of olive trees - a new addition to Roda in these quantities, very nice walkways, and a number of apartments and townhouse which are actually "front line" to the golf course.

The gardens still have to mature and "green up" however this will happen in weeks not months, just as we have seen on the earlier phases. The builders really are putting the finishing touches to all outside areas, cleaning up paths, all children's play areas are completed and looking great. When the fences come down from the "front line" golf villa's phase 3b is going to be just stunning.

For all of you about to complete on your properties on phase 3b, many congratulations, we think you are going to be delighted.
