We have flown in and out of Murcia (San Javier) on numerous occasions (8 return flights in the last 18 months). Yes the airport has limited facilities although recent improvement have enhanced the experience and improved checking-in and baggage reclaim times. The airport opens at 1.00pm and closes at 11.00pm due to military operations. However the 2nd runway will be operational later this year and will increase operating hours. Overall it serves its purpose well (low cost airlines?) and as yet we have only experienced 1 delay which was due to the airline. I would recommend this airport to all visitors to this area of Spain.
