This is my first post so hello all.

Me and my wife are looking at purchasing a holiday home in Mojacar for me and our three children.  

Are there any good and bad areas in Mojacar we should be aware of?

Do not want to be anywhere it's dead in the winter months.

Mojacar now styles itself as a 365 day resort and there is often much contention in Council regarding this. Not sure what you mean by good/bad as it's not as If there are Council Estates or poor areas. We have been here for 15 years and the Playa has transformed entirely with July, August & Easter now being too noisy & crowded for us personally, ( & the Spanish don't know the meaning of quiet. Like yobs or ignorant Brits ). As of the colder months in UK you see an influx of grey nomads who arrive in to escape the winter in UK.

We much prefer the quieter times and the Summer influx of groups of younger people, the noise and traffic we find disturbing. The Mayoress has tried to advertise the town as a family orientated resort. You wouldn't think it from the noisy rabble that descend in groups in Summer. The front is obviously much noisier. There is a reasonable bus service along the Playa but of course the Playa/ Town then slopes uphill. So walk, taxi or private vehicle.

Hope that helps a little..We love Mojacar. My wife has been coming here for more than 30 years from when there was 1 hotel and everything closed over winter. Anything specific please ask, and be aware, although better than the early 2000s, there are still plenty out here ready to overcharge/ rip you off.

Best Wishes,

I've been visiting  and now moving over in July .. As the previous reply I knew it with no real pavements or street lamps and only the Indalo hotel there  it was magical .. Everything changes and 'progress' is inevitable but Mojacar is still a very enjoyable place and a beautifully spiritual place.Yes it does get busy and yes the mayoress is trying to bring in more tourists (not a good thing in my opinion) with more 'clubs' along the Playa is getting quite lively but I'm sure it will be a lovely place for your family to holiday and to be honest I can think of worse places in Spain to visit ..

Just created an account and have only recently  discovered Mojacar ( looks magical)  as myself and my husband are looking to buy a holiday apartment  in Spain and we're  intrested in this areaof Almeria. We've seen a few apts  advertised  that we like and we're  looking to visit when restrictions are lifted.  Can you reccomend a decent hotel close to amenities  and the beach. 

Many thanks.. Looking forward to visiting
