Airports / Transfers: Very easy access from the UK - airports at Almeria, Murcia, Alicante, Malaga all within easy driving distance

Budget airlines fly to Almeria (nearest airport) from all over UK (eg Ryanair, Easyjet, BMI, Monarch)

Almeria - transfer is around 45 mins by car

Murcia - transfer is around 1.5 hours by car

Alicante - transfer is around 2 hours by car

Car is needed but multiple good car hire companies found directly at the airport.

Almeria Area: The Cabo de Gata National Park is Andalucia's largest coastal protected area with some of Europe's most original geological features and stretches the coastline around Almeria with high craggy mountains, some fabulous unspoilt beaches, hidden coves and, for divers, extensive coral reefs teeming with marine life giving some of the best diving in Spain. Designated a UNESCO Biosphere reserve in 1997, the park shelters an extraordinary wealth of wildlife, including many rare and endemic plants and endangered fauna.

The historic town of Granada is just a couple of hours away. An absolute must is a visit to the astonishing UNESCO national heritage site, the Alhambra. Don't forget to stroll the winding streets of the Albaicin, the old Arabic quarter, at the foot of the Arabian palace.

There are plenty of local towns to visit, not least the old town, Mojacar Pueblo, set in the hills with its narrow cobbled streets, nice restaurants and Flamenco in the summer months in the main square.

Garrucha is also just a few kms away from Mojacar Playa, with its blue flag beaches and lovely port/harbour area. It remains an active fishing port and marina and is a seafood lovers delight.

Stylish flat in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a relaxing stay at this stylish apartment just outside Mojacar Playa in an upmarket complex. It was secluded and quiet, with fab views over the Med. Unlike many holiday lets we've had in the area, this flat is nicely decorated with upmarket furniture and has all the mod cons you'd want: dishwasher, strong wifi, air-con, washing machine, Nespresso machine. The owner responded promptly to every question we had. I thoroughly recommend.

Property Fine - Site Not

  • 2 of 5

The beach club as advertised was non existent - closed since 2014. I only booked the apartment because of the beach club and facilities within it. This is a gross misrepresentation of the facts and I am looking for compensation. The photos showing the beach club with infinity pool should be removed immediately. The whole site is run down and in real need of repair. We had to pay to go to another beach club in Mojacar which we would not have done if there was a beach club as advertised at the Golf and Beach Resort at Playa de Macenas. There was no golf course either. The whole site was misnamed. We had no beach chairs in the apartment which we could have used by the small pool between the apartments which meant we were unable to use that pool also. There were no facilities for rubbish collection which meant we had to carry our rubbish to the car and take it to the bins outside the resort. Hardly a 5* resort more like a 2*. The apartment was fine apart from the fact that the air conditioning was on one control only and as the rooms varied in need of air conditioning it was very inefficient. The wind-up blinds in the sitting room were very stiff from the beginning of the week. By the middle of the week the blinds could not be wound up or down without 2 people helping - one had to be outside holding the blind whilst the other wound the blind. I also booked the apartment because it had satellite TV and the World Cup and Wimbledon was on. I assumed it would have English channels particularly as the owner is English - I was wrong! Yet another disappointment. Altogether a very unsuccesful stay..

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disappointed, that is not the experience from our other guests at all, as you can see by the other reviews including one just a week or so before your own stay, but let me directly address some of those points for other guests. 1) The beach club has been open every year since 2008 and is expected to be so in the future. This year there has been a change of ownership that caused it to be closed at short notice. We communicated this with all our guests in advance of their stays to avoid this type of misunderstanding, so I am sorry if you still feel you weren't aware. 2) The resort is not advertised by us as a golf resort as the golf course has not been open for a long time. 3) There are 4 loungers in the garden of the apartment for guests to use with views straight out to sea. The pool is just a few metres from the apartment. 4) There are plenty of rubbish facilities, so I am surprised you went offsite. The main one for our guests being directly where you park your car in the underground parking area. This was notified to you on arrival by the rental team. 5) The wind up blinds can occasionally get some grit in the mechanism as they directly face the sea and beach. Upon notification the team have cleaned the mechanism and the blinds work perfectly. 6) The apartment has free-view satellite tv with around 200 channels and most of the channels are Spanish, French and German. We are considering adding an IPTV service which will include 40 free English channels. 7) We have had no problems with air conditioning and it had a full service just a month ago. It was checked after you left and was also fine. 8) Both the apartment and area is well maintained with a team of landscape gardeners employed on site and with pool maintenance and repairs being done regularly by the community. The whole area is scheduled to be painted about every 10 years and this is also due shortly.

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!

Fantastic holiday, fab apartment, stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

The Views from this apartment especially from the Master bedroom and the main living area are stunning. We slept with the shutters open just so we could wake up every morning to the sunrising over the ocean. The apartment was very well equipped for 6 and the kitchen had everything needed for eating in. (Usually fish on the bbq) My husband played the golf course and said it was 'heaven on earth'. The Friday Market at Garrucha was fantastic for fresh produce especially the cheese and olives.

We hired a car which I would say is essential.

The weather was absolutely beautiful perfect for our fair skin. We swam every day either in the pool or in the sea.

All in all a perfect holiday for the whole family and our batteries are well and truly recharged! We will definitely be returning!!

Excellent option for families

  • 5 of 5

Nice appartment with the best sigthseeing in Playa Macenas.

The appartment is really complete with all you can need for a family of 6 people. Close to the beach you will not see any building between the coast and the flat.

The breeze is almost continue so you can sleep cool in the night and have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the garden.

The owner is really serious and will give you all the iformation and facilities for you can have a wonderful stay.

The back side is connected to the Beach Club and the beach through a sand path in 3 minutes walking.

Playa Macenas is the best touristic complex in Mojacar and perhaps in Cabo de Gata Coast: The place more sunny in Europe, nice beaches and good gastronomy will make you to have unforgetable vacations.

Playa Macenas sea view apartment

  • 5 of 5

I thought this apartment was beautifully furnished, comfortable and one of the most perfectly situated on the entire complex. It has a balcony and interconnecting garden which stretches around the apartment on two sides and offers panoramic views of the ocean - just perfect for sundowners. A canopy provided shade on hot days and there was a barbeque and outside dining space.

The facilities on the complex included several swimming pools (one of which is located very close to the apartment), a pool club complex with shops and a restaurant / bar and also a golf course.

Locally, the beach front afforded many great restaurants and activities for all ages as well as a stunning beach.

I would definitely go back.

Car: necessary

Just a couple of kms out from the popular and busy seaside town of Mojacar there are an abundance of things to do. From the Moorish/Arabic mediaeval setting of the old town with its narrow winding streets high in the hills overlooking the sea and open air events such as traditional Flamenco dancing to the bustling seaside town along the beach front, with it's plentiful restaurants, bars and sandy beaches.

Available activities are numerous whether it is relaxing on the beach, golfing, walking in the Cabo de Gata natural park, fishing, diving, sailing or exploring the countryside on horseback you should not be short of options. Mojacar also has some of the best diving in Spain with some truly excellent dive sites.

For day trips out try the Tabernas Desert, the location set of many westerns, or visit Sorbas Caves that boast over 50km and 1000 underground limestone caves. Or explore the historic town of Granada a couple of hours away that takes in the UNESCO heritage site of Alhambra.

Ski: A little known fact but Mojacar is just a couple of hours away by car to the Sierra Nevada mountains where top quality skiing can be found in winter

This is the most southerly ski resort in Europe and it is quite small in comparison to other European resorts. However, the facilities are considered top rate and it has, therefore, hosted numerous national and international ski events.

Depending on the snow levels, the season generally runs from the end of November or the beginning of December until sometime in April.
