To be honest, I booked this hotel because it was very reasonably priced. I hesitated at first as it was rated as 1* but going by the pictures posted and previous reviews I decided to give it a chance. And I'm so glad I did.
My room was located on the first floor above the restaurant/bar. It was a small room but had a very generous balcony which was far more important to me. There was a flat screen tv, air conditioning and ensuite bathroom. The décor is tired and it would benefit from some attention. The room was cleaned every day. As it was on the front of the hotel and facing the road, there was a fair bit of traffic noise. Opposite the hotel were a couple of bars where people tended to sit out quite late into the night chatting, so if you're looking for peace and quiet, this room is not for you. The noise didn't bother me at all and I found the balcony a great spot to people watch. There are rooms downstairs at the back of the hotel, but these have no balcony or terrace.
Down one flight of stairs to the restaurant/bar for breakfast. Not the best in the world, a toasted half baguette, butter, jam, orange juice and coffee.
The staff at this hotel do not speak English which was a little bit awkward at first as my Spanish is practically non existent, but we managed to understand each other and it wasn't really a problem.
The hotel has a beautiful pool area which is well kept and secluded with a few sunloungers provided.
All in all, this is a budget hotel, but provides everything you need. There are many cafes and bars within walking distance up the hill into Mojacar, and the beach is approx. 20 minute walk. Lots of shops etc near the beach..
Would I stay here again? Most definitely!
