My wife and I stayed here for a week, but the apartment could easily accommodate two couples with it's two good sized bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms. The property is very close to the sea front and a good selection of bars and restaurants. We didn't use the communal pool as it wasn't warm enough in March, but it's literally a few steps from the front door of the apartment. We really enjoyed our stay. The only thing we would've liked is a bit more outside space, but obviously not much can be done about that and in the warmer months we would have spent time around the pool.

Kitchen small but workable. Furnishings good. The gardens of the Spirit of Mojacar complex are very lovely, carefully tended although, because some residents own dogs, there is some fouling in spite of notices stating it will not be tolerated. The pool was empty and being repaired while we stayed. When this work is complete and the weather is warmer one certainly would spend more time relaxing around the pool. The resort of Mojacar Playa has a 3 Km long flat paved promenade, popular with walkers and cyclists, passing many pleasant restaurants and bars. The commercial centre square is a good place to while away the time with tapas and drinks in the sun after some light shopping.

Not wanting to go far afield we heard this part of Spain was sunny and warm even at this time of year, we were not disappointed. We've had a lovely holiday in this beautiful part of Spain. The apartment was beatifully furnished, very clean and was equiped to a high standard. The complex itself was beautiful and the village was outstanding. Thank you john and Joan who were very helpful and great with suggestions of where to eat and places to visit, we very much enjoyed the cabarra mountains. We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting this area of Spain. We hope to be back!
