The property in Hacienda del Álamo has been designed to be low density. A little over a tenth of the resort space has been urbanised. However, there are residential communities to be found with plenty of choice of accommodation including luxury villas, town houses and apartments. The development also includes shopping areas which, along with the residential areas, lie within a security gated complex. Property is available to buy or to rent and many of the villas have their own swimming pools. The resort is busiest during the summer but it is home to plenty of ex-pats over the full course of the year. With relatively mild winters for which Murcia is famous.
