I would recommend the Yaramar without hesitation. Our room was good with an excellent sea view and very comfortable. We used the beach club every day as we are not pool lovers we found it hilarious when we saw people queuing for the pool beds at 740am when the pool did not open until 9am. What a waste of your holiday. More
Fortnight in Fuengirola at the Yaramar
Room facing the sea on the 9th of 15 floors (no floor 13) good view out to see and the beach. Could be a little noisy with window open as promenade was busy all day and quite late into the morning plus the bin lorries and traffic. Good view of some festival just after we arrived and very good fireworks display. No air conditioning for most of the holiday in the breakfast/dining room which made it a little uncomfortable; but since many guests wore flip flops, sandals, mules,shorts of varying lengths and beach attire, to dinner, despite there being a dress code for gents of long trousers; it probably didn't matter, so why did I pack so many shirts and several pairs of trousers? Lifts could be a bit crowded and looked through to the Centre of the hotel as they were glass. Rooms were spacious and tidy with a free safety deposit box and some English TV channels though reception was varied and TV frequently blocked. Tea and coffee making bring your own or buy it as tea was awful and so was the coffee in the room. Kettle not working was replaced promptly when reported. Tiny fridge was 20.00 euros a week if you wanted it and needed if you wanted to keep milk. Not enough sockets for charging electronic gadgets such as kindles, e cigarettes camera, as kettle and TV took them up. reception very helpful and helped set up the free WIFi on my phone. Pool, as usual Brits queuing well before opening at 09.00 a.m. to grab sunbeds so none available and then left vacant for hours on end with just the hotel pool towels on them; proving it's not the Germans as almost all the clientele were from North of London with a smattering of Dutch and Spanish. Food pretty good usually something I could eat; to much fish/seafood every night and in salads restricted what I would eat. Good range of fresh fruit apples, pear, plums, bananas, kiwi, oranges, cherries and melon, pineapple and grapes. Freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast and a reasonable coffee (not tea though). Cereals and dried fruits in the morning and omelets cooked for you. Toasters need the elements replacing as nearly all bread needed to go through twice or spend an eternity slowing the speed. Bathroom had bath gel and hair gel and toothbrush, soap, shower cap and shoe shine which was great along with good shower over the bath and a bidet and towels were good quality. Didn't use the slippers provided but a nice touch. Entertainment was provided by Thomson and was ok with a couple of comedians that were very good. Pity Fuengirola, didn't have more quizzes as only those in the Hotel seemed available and no gambling on Bingo you have to get vouchers to spend at the Hotel. Well equipped Gym and Sauna was great also a Jacuzzi indoor and one by the pool also. Overall enjoyed the holiday and took a few trips as the train station for los Boliches is left out of hotel a few hundred yards left again and trains run to Malaga Central for E 7.20 return or E 3.20 return to Benalmadena once you get used to the ticket machines. There are plenty of shops, bars, supermarkets, restaurants nearby for water, beer and so on, and a market with many stalls on a Tuesday. Hotel does a very popular series of Happy hours with drinks 2 for 1 so a pint for E 3.50 becomes reasonable, bars about E 2.00 to 3.00 for a pint and supermarket a E 1.00 or less. Water 1.5 L from E 0.25 but hotel with dinner was E 3.10 for a litre so pretty expensive as 0.5 L was E 2.20. Generally a well run hotel with helpful and courteous staff from the snack bar to the pool, restaurant and reception and bars the staff were a credit to the place. Supposed to be adults only but there were some children and the place was generally geared for older clientele and I'm not that far off sixty.More
Red hot Hotel Yaramar
Our room on the 12th floor had a sensational view of a portion of Fuengirola beach from the balcony. Table and 2 chairs provided. The entire beach stretches for miles and is predominately sandy with a small thin section of shingle being exposed by the strong undercurrent. Not a problem but it catches out the unwary paddler.Our room was not overly large, 2 people could not pass at the same time between the beds and the long wooden unit containing the fridge and providing a shelf for makeup, tea/coffee making etc. Fridge cost 10 Euros for 2 weeks and swimming pool/beach towels cost a refundable 20 Euros for 2 weeks.Facilities in the hotel were very good. The dining room was pleasant with a good selection of food and fresh fruit. A small section was devoted to diabetic cereal and, I guess, low GI bread and rolls. Swimming pool accommodation was good and only spoiled by Brits reserving beds with towels. Live entertainment mainly from Thomson entertainment staff with guest performers. The beach was on the other side of the road outside the hotel and there is also a small Yaramar restaurant on the beach where hotel meals can be exchanged for restaurant meals. Sun beds and umbrellas in front of this restaurant are discounted for Yaramar guests. Local buses are plentiful and air conditioned. 2 or 3 time variations and costs for trips to Gibraltar from Thomson reps or local travel agents. Bus and train stations are about 10 mins walk from hotel. Plenty of bars and restaurants just a minutes walk away in Fuengirola town . Very pleasant hotel staff and Thomson reps.More
The hotel is perfectly positioned in Fuengirola for little wanders around the beach front. Facilities provided are very good, including a refreshing pool and an outdoor whirlpool to cool off in the hot Spanish midday sun. Rooms are light and airy with excellent air conditioning and balconies offering a view over the pool area and the sea (on the one side) and then just the sea on the other. Small tea and coffee facilities are provided in the rooms with a decent sized new television mounted on the wall which offers channels in most prominent European languages (English, Spanish, German etc). Bathrooms are spacious and suit all your needs with a bath and a shower (and a bidet if you're adventurous). Bathroom door does have frosted glass sections which can be off-putting, but assuming your don't go on holiday with total strangers this probably won't cause any upset. Cleaners are very attentive and make up your room everyday when requested. The hotel's restaurant does suffer some lack of variation on mealtime menus which would be my only gripe. However this is far counterbalanced by the friendly staff who are generally very welcoming and attentive. Some reviews have commented on the dated decor, whilst it is true that the decor is a little dated (more obvious in the first floor seating area) it is well maintained so for me this is not really an issue. As for adults only, generally this hotel is geared for a more mature clientele but there are a few reviews commenting about children, from what I can see these are young adults (14 years upwards) and so nothing like you can imagine young children splashing around in the pool disturbing the peace, the TUI entertainment team do that quite well themselves. Can't fault the hotel and its staff!More
