Vista Mojacar
Ranked #23 of 24 Hotels in Mojacar
Reviewed 28 June 2013

After a VERY early start, 04.30 for a 06.25 Easyjet flight, we arrived at Almeria airport at 10.30 where we’d hoped to get a bus to Mojacar. No such luck- public transport at the weekends in Spain is a bit “hit and miss”, and more often “miss” than “hit”! So we decided to take a cab all the way to Mojacar which cost the best part of 100 euros.

We both noticed that almost all the other passengers from our flight were queuing up for hire cars. It was perhaps then we should have realised you really need your own wheels to get around in Almeria!!

Vista Mojacar’s reception was a dark little room with a desk, a computer and Francisco, the receptionist, who showed us to our villa. We were pleasantly surprised. Apart from the pool being out of use, which was one of the reasons we’d chosen the apartment, the accommodation itself was wonderful; clean marble floors, a decent kitchen with cooking utensils, microwave and any other mod cons you might need, a spiral stair case, two good sized bedrooms with their own respective balconies, enormous beds and two large terraces. One of the terraces was the Solarium which was accessed by an iron staircase leading off the back bedroom. This was at the top of the apartment and was a flat tiled roof. There wasn’t any furniture up there so you couldn’t do much other than just lie there in the sun or take pictures of the breath-taking views of Mojacar.

There was no washing up liquid, scouring pads or washing detergent nor was there any tea, coffee, sugar or milk… just something to bear in mind. But there are two supermarkets within ten minutes walking distance of the apartment, so no big deal. There were, however, towels and loo roll, but no shower gel or shampoo. Another thing to mention is the ancient washing machine. We went out for the day and came back to find the kitchen floor covered in water.
The apartment is in Mojacar Playa, rather Mojacar Pueblo, and is in between the two ends of town. Most amenities take about ten minutes or so to get to. There are a couple of good eateries nearby. We had 2 particularly good meals at the Mexican and Chiringuito Albatros. A lot of places were closed or only open at certain times because it was low season, but something we both noticed was that apart from Albatros, the food at the restaurants on the beach wasn’t as good or as reasonably priced as on the other side of the road.
The apartment is set a few streets back from the main road up quite a steep hill. Although the nightlife at the weekends seems pretty lively, you won’t get disturbed unless of course your apartment is next door to a stag or hen do of which there are plenty!
