Widely regarded as one of the finest multi-ownership clubs in Europe, La Quinta Club is situated in the heart of La Manga Club on the Costa Calida in south-eastern Spain.

Opened in 1986 and nestling in tropical gardens on a hillside above the par 47-pitch and putt course, the five-star La Quinta Club offers 46 luxury two and three-bedroom air conditioned linked villas.

Built in the traditional Andalucian style, the villas look out towards the Mar Menor inland sea, one of the most spectacular views in the Mediterranean.

Located at the centre of the Club is the private heated swimming pool with its own pool bar and clubhouse available for guests to enjoy the in-house entertainment and evening functions or pre-dinner drinks before visiting one of the many nearby restaurants.

La Manga Club has three golf courses, two of which are championship courses; a pitch and putt course; near the Mar Menor which offers water sports facilities and a secluded Mediterranean cove with a seasonal restaurant for visitors to the resort.

The Timeshare Association, TATOC, is delighted to announce the launch of a separate, stand-alone consumer helpline website aimed at timeshare owners and those in need of assistance.

The new website, www.tatocconsumerhelpline.eu, reflects the recent division of the helpline from the main TATOC association. A new company, TATOC Consumer Helpline was established in 2013 so that it could concentrate resources on this important function.

Developed to provide easy access to TATOC‚Äôs consumer guides, frequently asked questions and consumer alerts, the website is the first timeshare consumer site to offer a ‚Äėlive-help‚Äô facility.

This facility gives browsers direct and immediate access to the helpline team via the website, during office hours, rather than using email or telephoning. It means browsers can receive quick and instant answers to their queries.

TATOC CEO Harry Taylor explained: ‚ÄúThe TATOC Consumer Helpline is the association‚Äôs flagship service and we felt it was important it had its own online presence, giving those looking for answers and reassurance quick and easy access to the information we can provide.‚ÄĚ
