Perfect Mojocar Getaway
Andy's place is a definite repeat booking for us, as is an amazing apartment with amazing views, only 5 mins drive from Mojocar. Don't be put off by negative reviews of this location, it's absolute piffle. Sure, the golf course isn't there, the large pool.closed out of season, but so.what. Peaceful, tranquil, amazingly well furnished and clean. 2 X pools onsite also beautifully clean with one only 60. Seconds from front door. Best value in Mojocar and with all things considered one of the best we've stayed in within Southern Europe. We travelled as a family of 2 adults and a 9 year old,.and we loved it. If in rental car, easy to get to, bus does go into Mojocar from outside and taxis cheap. 25 mins walk along beautiful cliff pathways to Mojocar for the more adventurous. Thanks Andy for providing this hidden jewel.
Nos ha encantado todo, el apartamento, la playa, & almeria.
Muchas gracias por todo Andy!

5 stars - perfect holiday
I recently stayed in this apartment with my friends to celebrate the end of our exams and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay. Not only was the apartment itself beautiful and comfortable, the location was incredible. We had an amazing view of the beach which was only 2 minutes walk away, and we we also enjoyed the complex’s many pools. We didn’t have a car, but we didn’t need one as there was excellent bus coverage right from outside the complex. We loved going to the nearby beach bars and restaurants along the promenade, where many local bands would play and it was only a 5 minute bus journey away. Alternatively if we didn’t want to get the bus we could take the beautiful cliff walk across to the promenade. All in all the apartment was perfect and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Mojacar.
Brilliant apartment well equipped and comfortable
We stayed here over the winter period - not really 'winter' at all in Mojacar - and it was wonderful. The apartment has everything provided and everything is of good quality. We only used one bedroom, very comfortable bed, the other having twin beds and plenty of bedding for all.
Fabulous views from the big terrace which is a real sun trap.
I'm conscious this is beginning to resemble one of those 'friends of the owner' reviews one sees from time to time, but have never met the owner personally. I did meet the couple who look after the apartment on his behalf and they are totally professional and helpful.
Our long stay coincided with the repositioning of the Astra satellite - much wailing in Spain over the loss of BBC, ITV, etc - but can confirm the DVD player works well and there are DVDs and books provided, but maybe consider tucking that box set you never got round to watching in your suitcase if TV in the evening is an engrained habit.
Communication with owner to arrange dates etc by email is easy and stress free.
Strongly recommended apartment, Mojacar is fabulous and we were sorry to leave. We loved it so much we're in the process of buying an apartment of our own in Mojacar.

Lovely complex, great apartment
We spent a lovely 2 weeks in this apartment. When you don’t want to cook in the well-equipped kitchen, there are plenty of good restaurants and bars in nearby Mojacar and Garrucha. For lunch, the family run bar at the main pool serves traditional Spanish food - paella, gazpacho, salads - as well as pasta, fish, burgers and fries for the less adventurous. The food is delicious and excellent value for money.
The main pool area is superb and has a children’s pool for the little ones and a well equipped gym (although no aircon so it can get a bit sweaty!). There are another two pools on the complex if you want a quieter swim. The apartment is situated on the outskirts of the complex so its balcony looks out onto the sea and is quiet and relatively private.
There is no wifi in the apartment itself but you can log on in the main pool area – a godsend when it was too hot for the children to swim and they could chill out on a sunlounger in the shade and listen to music or watch a film on the ipad. There is a DVD player in the apartment with English speaking films. There is Sky TV, a shelf full of holiday paperbacks, and even a selection of children’s beach toys available for you to use.
It was a really nice touch to find a few groceries waiting for us on arrival – Andy has thought of everything to make you feel very welcome.
We are not golfers so sorry I can’t comment on the course!
All in all, this was a great value family holiday and I don’t hesitate in recommending both the complex and the apartment.
Thanks for the kind review. Just an update as to the WIFI. There is now 4 Meg WIFI in the apartment for exclusive use of guests.
Playa Macenas 5* Beach and Golf resort is situated in a privileged corner of Andalusia, on the coast of Almeria, next to the village of Mojácar and just a few kilometres from the Níjar- Cabo de Gata Nature Reserve. Mojacar offers 17 kilometres of unspoilt beaches including the naturist beaches of El Sombrerico and La Granatilla. Playa Macenas takes its name from one of the most attractive natural beaches of the area adjacent to the complex.
One of the best features of Mojacar Playa are the numerous bars/clubs/restaurants that cater for all tastes. You can try Spanish, Italian, German, Argentinean or Chinese fare all at very reasonable prices. The beautiful romantic old white washed village of Mojacar, a 5-minute drive away, is full of character and charm. Its labyrinth of cobbled walkways and streets offer a variety of restaurants, bars, tourist shops and quaint Spanish shops as well as spectacular views of the surrounding areas.
