It is very modern and neatly decorated with everything you need including wi fi, air con and catch up tv! The kitchen is well equipped but we were only there a week so didn't really cook. The terrace is big, sunny and very private with beautiful mountain views. Even in July the pool was quiet and the jacuzzi was an added bonus. The life guard on duty was very friendly and even entertained kids on holiday! It is a short walk from the playa with plenty of great value bars and restaurants but still retains a Spanish feel. We went to Mojacar Playa on 3 evenings as the bus service there is very good and it it is well worth it. We also got a taxi in to Garrucha but there is a good bus service there as well. The process of booking and paying Wendy and Paul was very straightforward and they met us at the property to go through everything........as well as leaving tea, coffee, water and cava for us! They were also very helpful with information about transfers from Almeria airport. Myself and my husband would recommend this apartment without hesitation and hope to return some time.

The owner Simon arranged our transport to and from the airport for us, on arrival he was there to greet us with wine and chocolates, he's a really bubbly friendly man, very helpful and knowledgeable of the area, the apartment is stylishly decorated with a real homely feel, every little detail seemed to be thought about, from robes and slippers to hair dryer, straighteners etc etc everything u could possibly need, oh and the views are outstanding from all three balconys, we are already looking to book with Simon again in the next few months time, we can't wait to go back,
