Our relationship with the Hotel Angela stretches back for years. It’s always been a favourite with holidaymakers so it’s no surprise that TripAdvisor reviewers have put it in the top ten hotels in Fuengirola.
In terms of what sets it apart, there’s the location. It’s virtually on the beach - the honey-coloured sands of Playa de los Boliches are just over the road. What’s more, you’ve got shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep. And golfers take note - the hotel is less than half an hour from some of the Costa del Sol’s best golf courses, including Santana and Mijas Golf.
Then you’ve got the hotel itself. The décor is comfy-modern, refurbished for 2013 throughout.
Outside, you’ve got the pool. It’s a good-sized number, framed by a spacious terrace. Loungers are neatly grouped together and spread out on to the spacious terrace. Factor in a bar for drinks and snacks and you’ve got a great place to relax.
For more in the way of food, head to the restaurant, where it’s all about buffets. Breakfasts are a mix of Continental and British favourites, while evenings see more in the way of Mediterranean cuisine. For after-dinner entertainment, there’s live music every night.

The pool is a good size and heated during winter. There's a large terrace with plenty of sunloungers to stretch out on with a few more dotted around the gardens.
The main restaurant offers buffet breakfast and dinner in a family friendly atmosphere. There's also an à la carte menu, weekly themed night and a weekly gala dinner in the winter months. Gentlemen are asked to wear long trousers and shirts - not T-shirts, for dinner and jackets and ties on the gala nights.
Evening entertainment programme
Every night the hotel puts on professional shows including comedians, magicians, dancers and live music. The disco bar hosts popular Flamenco shows so you can dance the night away Andalucian style.

Can't wait to return.
Having decided on a holiday in Fuengirola this hotel was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. It is situated on the road that fronts the beach. This does mean that at busy times the noise of the traffic and fellow holidaymakers can be a little loud. (There was a loose drain grill in the road outside the hotel that was annoying when traffic drove over it, but the hotel should not be faulted for that.) The fact that the majority of the guests there during our stay were regular return visitors speaks highly of the reputation that this hotel has and deserves. The hotel is about 14 years old but has been updated. It is part of a group that includes the Florida Spa and Yaramar. The hotel was built “end on” to the beach so has 18 rooms with unobstructed views out to sea. All other rooms seem to have limited sea views. The rooms were adequately furnished and had air con and walk in shower. Wifi was available in the room, but beware the codes are changed weekly. All rooms were cleaned daily and you are given the option of when you want your towels changed daily (environmental). A safe is provided at no charge, but there is a charge for the fridge. Tea & coffee facilities are provided. The entertainment floor has the heated swimming pool, sunbathing area, small games room (darts, pool table (at a price), table tennis), and a small room for table games. There is also a café that provides freshly prepared snacks and drinks – beware – the “happy hour” offer is two drinks for the price of one. The reception is modern and the lounge bar area is where the evening entertainment is held. This area has views out to sea. There is also another entertainment room downstairs but this only usually opens when there is sufficient demand. The entertainment is average to good with most artists appearing regularly. Sometimes there are two separate acts per evening. Over two weeks we only had one very poor artist and that was on the last night of our stay. The restaurant is self service. All tastes are catered for and every evening we had a roast option. Usually during a week there is a Gala Evening when live music is provided in the restaurant and the ladies are given a flower and everyone a drink of champagne. Usually a Chef greeted you at the evening meal. All the staff were very friendly and efficient (especially Paco, Fali and Anna in the restaurant). Our visit was in February and we expected our fellow guests to be of our age group (over 65) as this is when our age group like to get away from the UK winter. This was the case and as the hotel was described as being suited for couples we were not surprised that no children were present or that the entertainment was biased towards old time dancing. Fuengirola is fairly flat and there are many benches on the sea front. Places to eat are everywhere and two doors from the hotel is and ex UK publican with such a business. A word of warning – BEWARE THE FLOWER SELLERS. The local railway is very efficient and runs from Fuengirola to Malaga via the airport. There is a very large market on a Tuesday but the Saturday flea market is not really worth a visit. The local zoo – Biopark – is a very pleasant way to spend a few hours 12-50 Euro. Whilst in the venue a day visit to Gibraltar – £16-00 – is a must. Once there you can spend you UK currency but unless you plan to spend the Gibraltar pounds request UK currency as change. Banks (well at least HSBC) do not charge for using you cards here. The cable car is a must visit if only for the pictures and views you can get on the way to and from the top. £10-50 return on our visit. Would we return to the Angela? Can’t wait.More

Our favourite hotel
We have stayed at the Angela several times before.This time we spent two weeks there just before Xmas booked with Thomsons. We wanted afternoon sun and quiet nights, so we paid the supplement for a superior room and I emailed the hotel directly to ask for a room on a high floor on the pool side.We were given a corner room on the top floor which was both spacious and nicely furnished and decorated with a good sized wardrobe.The bathroom had a good sized shower instead of a bath. We were very pleased with the room.Unlike experiences at some other hotels we never had a disturbed night, in fact the only noise we heard was the sound of the sea which was very restful. The restaurant food was similar to that served in other holiday hotels in southern Spain,but the choice offered was better than most and we always found something to enjoy. Of course neither the accommodation nor the food would make us return if the staff did not make us feel welcome. On this occasion,as before, we found all the hotel staff to be pleasant,cheerful and friendly. So the next time we want to visit Fuengirola we shall stay at the Angela.More

Excellent Christmas break
We stayed for 3nights at Christmas. The rooms were fairly simply furnishied but clean and comfortable with tv, tea and coffee facilities, own terrace with chairs and table. There is a fridge but has to be paid for daily. All food was self service from a buffet (hot and cold) with very good choices. The Xmas gala dinner was just excellent and would have been well received in a top class restaurant. We couldn't fault anything. However, above all, was the quality and customer service shown by all the staff. They are a credit to themselves and the hotel.More
No problems at this hotel
Have travelled to this hotel several times now and find it clean comfortable and the staff are always pleasant. Im a fussy eater but always find something to eat, If you dont like cooked meals, theres always a nice buffet style salad bar.. This is a nice friendly hotel, and they have always accomodated to your requests. If you required All Inclusive were you get your drinks/water free, you need to be booking a different hotel. Its worth paying the extra per day for a poolside viewMore
