An infinity pool with views of the Mediterranean and a beach on tap are just two reasons to stay here.
Location-wise, this hotel is just across from a sandy beach, with shops, bars and restaurants spilling out on the doorstep. And if you want to go further afield, central Fuengirola is a 15-minute walk away.
The pool is the centrepiece – it’s an L-shaped infinity design overlooking the sea. Elsewhere, there’s a buffet restaurant serving up Brit favourites and a lounge bar that hosts dancing.

Never a platinum hotel
We booked this hotel back in January after seeing the photos on thomson and discussing it in store with them and thought it looked ideal. The hotel wasn't what we were expecting, however we didn't let this ruin our holiday. The pool isn't as pictured. Somehow they have managed to picture it hiding the wall at the end, meaning it isn't an infinity pool as described. Also it doesn't show the lay out of the sunbeds, you won't get anywhere near the pool, they are all down the side of the hotel. The Wi-Fi is great when it works, if you can get it to log you in first time. I had days where it took hours to log in. The rooms were okay, however there was only one plug socket which wasn't ideal, there was sealant peeling away in the bathroom and if we wanted to use our fridge we had to pay for a key to use it! We asked for a double room when we booked but we were placed in a twin. When I told reception this they told me they weren't going to do anything about it. The rooms were kept very clean, however cleaners will knock your door from 8.30am, while already opening it, not giving you chance to answer. Adding to this, we found it isn't only cleaners who let themselves into your room. One day when we returned from a walk and we were getting changed (after the cleaners had been in) a lady let herself into our room, not giving us chance to answer as she had already opened it. She apologised and said "oh do you need anything" to which I said no and she left. Slightly worrying. When we then returned again in the evening it was evident someone had been in our room again as the iron and ironing board we had before we went out had been taken. This meant 3 lots of people had let themselves into our room when they felt like it throughout the day. I am more than happy for cleaners to do this, but found this excessive and felt very uncomfortable knowing so many people had been in my room! When I went down to reception the lady I spoke to kept speaking over me and would not listen to what I had to say, trying to make excuses and trying to fob me off. This happened again on our last day, and the other last I spoke to did the exact same. Not what I expect in what is apparently a 4* platinum hotel. The food was pretty poor. Never have I seen mash potato that was watery. The chicken was never cooked properly and therefore we had to avoid as we didn't fancy getting ill! Credit where it's due, the shepherds pie was beautiful and the rest of the meat was always cooked perfectly. There was not much choice and was very repetitive, we didn't really enjoy the food there. One night I tried to play it safe with a bread roll to try and fill me up, however the butter was off and stunk like vinegar! We tried to eat our evening meal in the marina bay a number of times and never could get booked in as staff would tell me to leave it till the next morning and then it would be full, so when I tried again the night before they kept telling me the same thing, so we never did get our evening meal in there. The entertainment was poor. We tried it each night and there were a maximum of 3 acts that were of a decent quality. Very overpriced water. €3.10 for a litre bottle. 80 cent for 1.5 litres at the little shop opposite! My parents stopped in a thomson platinum in Crete, and I have no idea how this is rated as the same. When looking at their photos and hearing about the food etc there it is miles ahead of the Angela. We were very disappointed with this Hotel, especially the issues with people entering our rooms when they felt like it. We won't be visiting again. More

Short stay in an average hotel
The hotel is situated well; in reach of local shops and across the road from the beach. You need to get to the pool at opening time to get a lounger. There are not enough for all guests! They are also very crammed together, the space is limited. The pool is small for the amount of guests! You need to get to the beach before 11.30am if you want a lounger there. Lots of people reserve beds the previous day! 5euro a bed for the day (9am-7pm) The food is plentiful. Great variety at breakfast (buffet), lunch is served in the pool bar. If you are full board you can choose what you want from the menu (2/3 courses if you wanted it). Dinner is plentiful but repetitive (buffet). Spanish night- we got a glass of non descriptive wine on arrival and there was paella! At dinner, a waiter takes your drinks order and you pay when you leave the restaurant. Staff in the eating areas work hard and ensure you have what you need. Entertainment in the lounge was horrendous! It reminded me of an act from Britain's Got Talent that was put in front of the judges to show how not to do it! A guy on a keyboard and a bad karaoke singer. Swerved that one! Singer from London (sorry can't remember her name, think it was Laura) in the pool bar was amazing. Full of personality, entertained the guests with a variety of songs and was all in all fantastic. Singer who did songs form the 60s, thought he was Elvis! You're not! Great voice but very monotone and no personality! Rooms are adequate, clean and catered for needs. Free AC and safe. 10 euro for the fridge. Plenty of wardrobe space, tea and coffee facilities and cleaned daily. There were a variety of guests ranging from 20 to 70 (we're mid 40s). For us, the hotel did not have life! It felt like everyone was going through the motions. Eat, sunbathe, eat, sunbathe, eat, sleep. You need to get out of the hotel and have a walk down side streets were there are bars and restaurants! A nice break but I wouldn't revisit.More
Fantastic Hotel in a Beautiful Resort
Hotel was fantastically located on the seafront very close to bars and shops, Pool and amenities were second to non drinks were a bit expensive although they did do a happy hour twice a day at the pool bar/entertainment bar. Only criticism is there is very poor entertainment and no music around the pool/sun terrace, there are plenty of sunbeds even though people still Queue from 8am. This hotel is for couples older generation not child friendly at all which suited us perfectly. Rooms were cleaned everyday with the option of clean towels and bedding whenever you wanted. Safe and A/C are free you do have to pay for the fridge (we didn't bother as shops close enough), free coffee and tea and kettle in room. Bathroom had a hair dryer and was stocked up daily with items from shampoo/conditioner, toothbrushes and hair combs etc... We would definitely go back we had an amazing holiday.More
Really Thomson,s ? Your description of the Angela Hotel is misleading.
First, the good things. Location great, checking in and baggage handling excellent room clean and tidy but adequate and cleaned regularly. The downside, infinity pool it is NOT. It is a normal pool that when filled to overflowing would at a stretch be considered to be infinity if it did not out on to a road. Adults only was inferred by the description in the brochure, there were kids there. The entertainment was seriously poor. Happy hour ! Well what a misnomer. The poolside bar had one very miserable girl serving and I counted well into double figures the people waiting in the queue. MARINA BAY?..only 20 places allocated per day for an hotel with 500 guests means that your chance of being able to book to dine there is extremely small. We complained to our rep and miraculously they managed to squeeze us in (4 couples in attendance when we ate there) the hotel restaurant evening meal...food was bland, carvery was a joke, vegetables tinned. Breakfast was okay but had to stand around waiting for eggs to be cooked whilst the rest of breakfast was getting cold. Toaster produced warm bread. To sum up booking this hotel was a big mistake. Thomson's have used a lot of poetic licence in describing this hotel. I am 68 and it felt tired and out of date even to me.unless your brain has gone to seed avoid this place it is not an hotel it is a time capsule.More
Just about what we expected.
We have stayed nearby before at the Yaramar and called in here for a drink so thought we would give it a try. It was pretty much what we expected. We e-mailed ahead to request a high floor and were rewarded with room 924, which is top floor on the pool side and the room nearest the front, without paying for a sea view room. Excellent service from management and reception, Thank you and well done. It sometimes pays to ask politely! The room was kept very clean and well stocked by the maids. Rooms are not huge but we found it adequate with tv, fridge (payable), free safe and tea and coffee, and air con. Also double glazed patio door so peaceful sleeping at night. Our room had a walk in shower with hand grips and a non slip mat. Toiletries were supplied and replenished daily. Food was typical hotel fare with plenty of choices both for breakfast and for evening meal which incidentally was from 6pm til 10pm so never overcrowded. Bar drinks were slightly expensive but if you chased the "happy hours" around the hotel bars you could get 2 for 1 most of the time. There was the usual sunbed queuing at 9am but there were still beds available at 11 and later if you did not want a particular spot. Beware many people put towels on pool beds early but went to the beach for a few hours until the sun came over the hotel, so beds were not occupied although they had towels on. Nice pool overlooking the beach. Pool towels for hire for 10 euros each. (refundable) . All staff were friendly and helpful. There is a taxi rank right outside the entrance but the prom is long and flat and great for walking if you have no problems. Beach is just across the prom with ample sunbeds. Loads of bars and restaurants around the hotel in either direction and please try the back streets for drinks and food and shopping, its buzzing. We would stay here again if we come back to Costa Del Sol in the future.More
