There is absolutely nowhere better to enjoy a wonderful holiday than at Utopian Retreats where the warmth of the hospitality is outstanding. Our site managers are there to help you with everything from booking a round of golf or a table at a restaurant, airport transfers and arranging meals with the chef. You feel as if you are alone at a five star retreat but help is always at hand when needed.

Bask in the sunshine by the luxurious 18 metre solar heated pool with a glass of chilled rose or wander into the kitchen for watermelon or a slice of homemade tortilla with salad.

We really do recommend you go for our half or full board catering option as there will always be plenty of food at hand which takes all the stress out of the holiday and also gives you time to cook the occasional meal or eat out at one of the high quality beach restaurants.

We have a ping pong table by the main pool which provides hours of entertainment for the teenagers amongst you, four mountain bikes, a dojo with free weights and yoga equipment, two pools and varied beautiful gardens where you can hide away in a hammock with a good book, or take a quiet nap. In our games room you can find backgammon, chess, monopoly, scrabble and cards as well as plenty of books if you need something to read. We have a piano and guitar as well as a djembe for our musical guests.

We do have a good and fast Wi-Fi connection in the main living area of La Finca Paradiso as well as English television and a fully stocked DVD library if you want to watch a film all together after dinner one evening.

There is plenty to do for all ages within the retreat but should you want to venture out, then there are lots of entertaining things to do in the vicinity including some well known golf courses such as Desert Springs and Val d’Este which is only a couple of minutes away. There is also tennis and paddle tennis and of course, horse riding.

The nearby town of Vera has an incredible Water Park with a huge variety of water slides and pools. Another firm favourite with the youngsters and more adventurous among you, is a pre-dinner trip to the Go-Karting track, where younger children can go on the small track with slower cars to an adult full size track with cars of 200 and 300 cc. You can visit mini Hollywood where spaghetti westerns used to be filmed which is a great day out for the children with a wildwest show and zoo. You can go caving in Sorbas or visit the Cabo De Gata National Park with its stunning scenery and empty beaches.

The local sandy beaches are only 20 minutes away with a wonderful variety of bars and restaurants, Volley Ball and Crazy Golf as well as plenty of space. Evening sundowners can be enjoyed to live music on the beach or on the main plaza of Mojacar Pueblo with amazing views for miles around. Every day can be a day to remember.


One of the most popular groups that we host at Utopian Retreats are those enjoying golfing holidays, due to the fact that we now have some magnificent and relatively new 18 hole golf courses nearby. For example, we have Marina Golf, Aquilan Golf, Playa Macenas, Desert Springs, (hugely popular and frequented by Ian Botham), El Cortijo Grande Golf and the stunning resort only two minutes away from us, Valle del Este Golf Resort. That’s a different golf course for every day of the week!

What could be better than waking up to a wonderful cooked breakfast before setting out to play a full day of golf in one of the many wonderful and varied resorts in the local area.

In the evening come back to your own private retreat for a shower or bath and relax with a gin and tonic before sitting down to a delicious dinner in our dining room or on one of our beautiful outdoor terraces.

Of course, you could always decide to have a day off, lounge by the pool with a good book, enjoy a sports remedial massage or take a trip to the beach for fresh calamares and a bottle of rose.
