                              nice property for families

                              4 of 5
                              we spent 8 days in this property late August and we had a very enjoyable stay there. The property is well equipped and the estate offers good amenities for families. Nicola was quick to respond when we had any questions about the property. Overall I thoroughly recommend the property and area. It's in a great area to explore the Cabo de Gata.

                              A relaxing break in a beautiful villa

                              5 of 5
                              The property is part of, an attractive, well maintained urban development, close to the shops and restaurants of Mojacar. The villa is clean, and very tastefully furnished, with a spacious modern kitchen. We enjoyed eating breakfast each morning on the terrace leading off from the main living area, and were spoilt for choice when deciding which terrace to sit on for our evening drink. The views were amazing. An early morning dip in the closest of the swimming pools (only a few metres away), was very refreshing, and we always had this pool to ourselves. Judy, the owner of the property, was very knowledgeable and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. She advised us on which restaurants to visit, and also the best beaches. We enjoyed some delicious meals, one whilst watching Flamenco dancing which was spectacular. Our favourite beach, only a short distance away, had umbrellas and very comfortable sun loungers to hire at a reasonable price. Included in the cost was a cold drink, brought to us personally by the friendly proprietor. We spent a lot of time in the main pool area, which also had sun loungers and umbrellas. The pool bar was a great place to eat lunch or just have a cold drink. We had a wonderful holiday, and I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

                              Great location. Well maintained apartment.

                              5 of 5
                              We just returned from a 10 day holiday in this apartment, which is situated in a great location on a relatively quiet complex. The apartment is well maintained and air conditioned. As mentioned in the description, the sea views are uninterrupted. We experienced a bit of noise from the apartment above. This varied throughout the stay according to the tenants, but it didn't bother us too much. The complex is situated away from the busy Playa area of Mojacar and has a relatively quiet family vibe. The pools within the complex are great, particularly the infinity pool. The owner was extremely helpful, giving us tips and recommendations of where to eat in the local area. Its a 15 min drive or so up to the Pueblo of Mojacar, from which the views of the surrounding area are stunning. There are miles and miles of beautiful beaches close by, ranging from really busy to completed isolated. All the beaches we visited were clean and some were outstanding. We would have no hesitation in visiting again. However, we would probably avoid July/August due to the heat. Having a young child, we needed to stay in the shade/apartment and seek out air-conditioned cafes etc for most of the day, venturing out onto the beaches after 5.30pm. The temperatures during our stay averaged 35C to 40C during the day. Apparently this was a particularly hot period, even by local standards. There is a wealth of bars, cafes and restaurants locally, to suit every taste. The nearby town of Garrucha is a working fishing port and local restaurants offer fantastic fresh fish dishes. We flew to Alicante airport and then drove to the apartment, which was around a 3 hour drive. There are a couple of other airports which are slightly closer, although we couldn't find the flights to fit from those airports. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and do hope to visit again. Thanks for a great stay!
