Well Equipped Apartment on Marina De La Torre Golf, Nr. Mojacar, Almeria - Prime Location Overlooking the Golf Course, and just a Short Walk to the Beach
We have a fantastic air-conditioned/heated 2 bedroom apartment on the Marina De La Torre Golf complex, suitable for 4 people situated between Mojacar Playa and the quaint fishing village of Garrucha. There are magnificent views across the golf course out to sea and towards Garrucha. Our apartment with a large terrace over looking the pool, is situated in the best possible position on the complex. This is a front line apartment rather than being tucked away at the rear without views. It is less than a 500m walk to the golf club house with the beach just a little further down the road. Situated between the traditional fishing port of Garrucha with its fine seafood restaurants and the seaside town of Mojacar Playa with a variety of bars and restaurants to suit every taste, there really is something for everyone here.
Please note that since the re alignment of the Sky satalliite many apartments are no longer able to receive uk terrestrial channels. However, we have invested and WE HAVE NOW UPGRADED OUR SATALITE SYSTEM SO WE CAN NOW RECEIVE MANY UK TERESTRIAL CHANNELS AND WIFI IS AVALABLE FOR GUESTS USE.
About the Mojacar area
Situated in the south east of the Province of Almeria (Andalucía) in southern Spain and on the Mediterranean coast, Mojacar enjoys one of the hottest climates in Europe. Mojacar is immediately noticeable when traveling through the area. Perched atop a hill, this picturesque, white-painted village is steeped in history and culture.
Undoubtedly the most romantic and picturesque resort town in south-eastern Spain, the white-washed houses and cobbled streets of Mojacar are sprinkled atop a hill overlooking pristine sandy beaches, washed by the warm Mediterranean. This unspoilt ancient Moorish fortress town has been a favorite with artists and writers for many years, and now attracts holiday-makers who fill up the hotels and villas which have proliferated along the nearby stretch of beach, fortunately not yet to the detriment of the town’s appearance or beguiling atmosphere. The village centre is honeycombed with narrow casbah-like cobbled alleyways, which hide many quaint surprises, like a Roman fountain pumping fresh spring water and the unusual fortified church of Santa Maria.
What others say!
Pamela Stannard...........Love Mojacar
So many bars n restaurants to choose from n we bus up to the Pueblo prom to walk along and beaches are clean drive 40 mins but well worth just for an ice cream nice atmosphere day or night...
Franklyn Brace Reviewed Playa de Mojacar 5*
One of the nicest places in Spain, good sea views without hotels blocking the views, many cafes and bars with all kinds of menus, meats, fish, take away and more. Lovely views across the countryside and mountains. Many festivals all the year along with lots of sporting events, a ramble to off road cycling to keep you fit after all that eating and drinking, with great swimming including diving for the more adventurous.
Mike Maxwell on Mojacar 5*
Stunningly beautiful part of the world with sun kissed beaches, old Spanish towns and lots of lovely places to eat and drink. A nice "get away from it all" place relatively unnoticed by the hordes so thoroughly relaxing.
John Losco Review of Mojacar
What a fabulous beach near the even more fabulous mountain. The pueblo is beautiful and the food is scrumptious!

Fantastic property, best views in Mojacar.
This is a very well-equipped apartment with everything needed for a great stay. AC, Sky TV Channels, hot water all in perfect working order. Apartment is clean & cleaning supplies such as washing powder & washing up liquid are provided. Beach essentials such as folding chairs and parasol are also provided. Rooms are spacious and clean with good quality bedding and towels. The icing on the cake is the huge terrace with stunning views down to the Mojacar/Garrucha area. The apartment is well-located within walking distance to the beach. It is on a hill, which may not suit everybody, but the amazing views are worth the slight inconvenience. There are shops, bars & cafes within walking distance as well as the bus stop.
Ian has really thought of everything & we were glad to find items such as a sewing kit, spare batteries & pantry essentials. Although we did not use the pool it seemed well-maintained and conveniently located just next to Ian's property. All in all, a great apartment and great value for money.
Geraldine and family were great guests. They communicated well and really looked after our apartment during their stay, it would be a pleasure to welcome them back again.
Imaginative description of accommodation
Price quoted was 840. Surprised to find service charge of 120 added on. No maid service and had to ask for clean sheets. No sky TV, but freeview thru a sky box. Unit does not overlook pool. You can see the pool by leaning on patio railing. No cork screw provided. Toaster did not work very well. Pool was not heated. Bedside lamps were so cheap Argos would not sell them. Golf course viiewis obscured by two large houses. Golf course views in listing were photos taken on the course and not from the unit. Still. Reasonable accommodation although not very easy to walk to any acceptable restaurants. Car is an absolute must and would not suit any person who is handicapped.
I'm amazed and disappointed that Lynn found so much fault in our apartment. A quick glance of recent previous guests reviews thought the complete opposite regarding the kitchen utensils and the views from the front balcony!
The service charge is added by Owners Direct and is clearly shown as their charges prior to booking so should not have been a surprise.
The apartment is not advertised as having "maid service". First 2 weeks sheets were in apartment on arrival, the 3rd weeks sheets were left by our agent after laundering following departure of previous guests long before they would be required.
There is a basic SKY package showing many sky channels and UK terrestrial channels but not a premium offering which includes sky sports & sky movies etc.
From the tone of the review regarding bedside lamps etc. it became clear that Lynn was never going to be satisfied from the first day he arrived.
As I said at the start of this response I'm amazed and disappointed Lynn found so much fault. I would be most reluctant to accept another booking from this guest.
A holiday apartment and area with lots on offer
Sunny terrace great for eating breakfast admiring views of the coast. Convenient location to walk to Garrucha. We found it Ok to walk to Mojacer village too, maybe too far if you don't like walking but then walk to the foot of the hill and jump on a bus. Great beaches all around in this area, very chilled, not like your usual bucket and spade spanish resorts. Loads of eating out choice. Very well equipped apartment, loved that we could get lots of choice of english tv and radio (maybe a bit sad I know!)
If I had one moan it would be the beds, both myself and partner suffer back/hip problems and the beds didn't help
Overall a great apartment and location
Thank you for taking the time to review our apartment it's very much appreciated. We are delighted you had a great time and enjoyed both the facilities we provide and the local area.
We will take on board your comments about the beds.
Lovely clean apartment, stunning views
Really nice apartment, had all we needed. Ian is very responsive to emails and efficient, felt sure if there was a problem, which there wasn't, it would be sorted out.
Apartment very clean and we loved location, which was near top of a hill, with wonderful sea views.
Thank you for your kind review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We'd love to have you as guests again in the future.
Nous avon loué l'appartement de Ian en aout 2017. C'est un super appartement avec une vue magnifique. Ian est là pour répondre à nos demandes. Superbe vue sur la mer que nous avons apprécié tout au long de notre séjour.
10 Minutes de la plage à pied complètement faisable, seul petit point négatif il y a une belle et grande montée au retour de la plage peut-être un peu compliqué pour des personnes âges et des couples avec enfants en bas âge.
Sinon rien a signelé l'appartement se situé à quelques km de Garrucha et de Mojacar Village.
We are delighted you enjoyed our apartment especially the views and would recommend it to others. We would love to have you as guests in the future.
