Having booked this holiday as a last minute week away we didn't know what to expect having never heard of Mojacar, or Almeria for that matter! On arrival at the Hotel we were greeted by a friendly, English speaking receptionist who quickly checked us in and explained meal times etc to us. Our room was everything we could have wished for and we even found some complimentary drinks in the fridge. The room was cleaned without fail everyday and fresh towels given when required, all we had to do was leave the used towels we wanted changing in the bath and the maid would replace them. All 4 swimming pools were wonderfully kept with plenty of sunbeds available. The hotel entertainment team was very friendly and when doing day time activities they would make the effort to get you involved, even if their English was limited. The resort was mainly Spanish, but there was a good mix of English people too. The restaurant was always very clean and the food served was always very well presented and a decent selection of food was available. At times the food was 'warm' but microwaves were supplied in case the food wasn't hot enough for you. You could also approach the chef at the 'show cooking' station if you required fresher food, crispier bacon or your meat cooked a little further. The staff couldn't clear our plates quick enough, on one occasion we returned to our table to find the staff attempting to clear the whole table, even though we hadn't finished. The one thing we would strongly recommend (if like us an knew nothing of Mojacar) is to go to the 'Welcome meeting' (if on a Thomas Cook holiday) as we would have been completely lost without this. We know this is meant to be a review of the hotel, but we felt we had to mention the Mojacar area. The Mojacar resort is spread over 2-3 miles and using the local bus service came in very handy (told to us in the welcome meeting and was only €1 per trip) and it's a beautiful drive along a coastal road with gorgeous views. The bus goes up into the village of Mojacar (in the mountains) and this small little place was stunning, with cobbled streets and hidden alleyways leading to beautiful restaurants and shops, with the Indalo Man everywhere to be seen....and bought. Views over Almeria are lovely and if you get there for sunset the sights are breathtaking. The beach bars on the coastal roads are also a must, the decor is stunning and makes you feel like your in the Art Deco district of Miami. Overall we had an amazing holiday and were sad to return to England. If you're after a cheap holiday away with a lovely hotel, 4 great pools (only 85 steps to the beach), decent food, friendly staff and a safe environment then this is a must place to go. We'd definitely recommend it to friends of ours.
