"What a difference 20 years make!"
I first visited the Hotel Indalo in Mojacar with my parents in January of 1981.
My memory of that first visit was of the splendid sight of the imposing moorish design hotel facing out to sea and nothing else.
When I returned in April of 2003, again with my parents but also my husband and our daughter who's first trip abroad it was, I couldn't believe the difference-the road was busy and bustling with shops and bars, there was building going on and there was a purpose built promenade all the way up to the turning up the hill to the 'old village'. At this point there was a shopping mall and beyond there were several more hotels and golf courses.
The Indalo sat in the same position looking a little disgruntled as if the march of progress had crept up on it and it didn't like what it was seeing.
