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.
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.
just returned from hotel angela.we were on the first floor opposite the jabega appartments .the first night there were a group of girls on the balcony to the early morning.after that there were groups of lads performing to the early hours.didnt get much sleep also there is a taxi rank right under the balcony.there is no privacy on the balconies every balcony looks into each other.the rooms were ok nothing special for a platinum hotel.the pool area was very good plenty of sun beds.the food was very good plenty of choice.lounge area was good.try to get a room on the pool side but i think you have to pay extra.it would be worth it .wi fi in rooms very good.free safe.you have to pay for fridge 1euro per day.i usually stop at the florida hotel which i find much better and quieter.More

lovely staff but sorry never a platinum hotel, I have complained to tomson holiday also about this. rooms were ok , pool area boring ,but worst of all the entertainment was awful,i am 58 and I am to young for this hotel,i stayed with 2 friends from the 12 to 22 may and had 2 ok nights ,I know you cant please everyone but come on not everyone there was into line dancing or ballroom, they have two rooms,the downstairs one could easily be for the more fun side shall we say .sorry I stayed there and will never go back, and bet I am not the only person to say thisMore
Never a Platinum
Just got back from the Angela,and whilst it is an extremely clean and very well run establishment,it baffles me how Thomson could ever give it a Platinum rating,indeed I would love to see Thomson's criteria in order for such a rating to be awarded. Firstly,the rooms are incredibly small and would never be condusive to anybody who may be wheelchair bound,the food ,whilst adequate is nothing special(for a Platinum one would expect food of restaurant quality).It is nigh on impossible to obtain a sunbed unless you join the queue of manics first thing in the morning.Always considered a German trait,but now a title firmly held by the British!! To be fair,Hotel Management have displayed signs warning against this practise but the rule is hardly ever observed.On the plus side,the location is excellent and the staff especially at reception and in the restaurant are superb.More

The Angela is a great hotel to stay in. Dancing every night and a further entertainment room for other entertainment, such as comedians, dancers and bingo.
Close to beach, railway and bus stations and not far to travel to other lovely places like Mijas.
Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are pleasant.
We'rd going again in September.More

Magical hotel experience. Pity about the unusual, inclement weather!
My husband and I stayed at this hotel between 3 May and 17 May, 2016. It was our first visit and we were not disappointed. We have never experienced staying in a hotel whose occupants are mainly senior citizens, some more senior than others! Many were repeat visitors who met up with other repeat visitors who they'd made friends with in previous years. The majority of guests were very friendly and everyone seemed to gel with ease resulting in a very friendly atmosphere. All the staff at whatever level, presented themselves professionally, with good humour, efficiency and friendliness and were always happy to assist?
Our room was on 3 rd floor. This enabled us to use the stairs when the lifts were over populated at peak periods, something we would not have been able to do if we were on the 9th floor (highest level). We were quite content with room 328 which was nearer the front of the hotel giving us a partial sea view and we were happy that the sun only appeared for a short time in the mornIng on the balcony as the room was less oppressive. The sea view rooms at the front of the hotel get full sun about midday but can also be very windy. The rooms overlooking the pool get the sun in the afternoon but the rooms also face other buildings.
Our room was quite compact, with twin beds, a bedside table placed in between, a separate dressing table with mirror over, a fridge (hire charge of 10 euros per week), a full length mirror, and adequate storage for hanging and several drawers. A safety deposit box is available in the wardrobe and is free of charge. There is a fully tiled bathroom with walk in shower including a hand rail. A large and small towel is provided for each guest as well as a bath mat. The towels are rather on the thin side but are replaced daily if not left on the towel rail. Shower gel, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, shower caps are provided. There is also a hair dryer in the bathroom but I never used it preferring to use my own. Bedding is changed when requested by placing a 'hotel angela' card on the bed to indicate a requirement to change bedding. Rooms are cleaned daily although the time is a bit hap hazard. Coffee an tea making facilities are provided and replenished daily.
The restaurant is run efficiently, providing so so many choices on a buffet basis. The quality varies according to chance - some hot foods that have been standing for longer periods of time can dry out but the range is so vast no one should have any complaints.
I felt that the desserts were a bit tasteless and monotonous - small cakes were very synthetic.
We bought bottles of wine with our meal which tended to be Spanish for about 17 euros, about the average price. Half a litre of water cost 2. 30 euros which I believe was overpriced considering that we could buy a 5 litre bottle at the shop outside the hotel for 1 euro.
The evening entertainment was very good, far better than we've experienced at other hotels. The lounge entertainment is geared towards those who like to get up and dance, usually ballroom or line dancing. The entertainment room on the lower level is more set up to provide artists including singers and comedians. The Flamenco evening wasn't a success. It was strange that they were all women.
Happy 'hour', which is really two hours, means you get two drinks for the price of one at set times.: lunchtime by the pool, early evening in the lounge area and 9 pm in the entertainment room when there is bingo till 9.30 pm followed by entertainment till 11 pm.
The public areas and pool area have all been revamped this year. The bedrooms have been spruced up with a change of accessories. We discovered the evening before our departure that a new indoor swimming pool was being made available, not all quite finished but due to have changing rooms, saunas and toilets. It is a pity that these facilities were not available at the beginning of our stay as the outdoor infinity pool was not heated and for the first 10 days of our holiday the weather was unsettled with rain and cold winds on most days, which was very unique
Although the hotel provides some day time activities like line dancing classes, Spanish lessons and paella making classes during fine weather, when the weather forced people to stay indoors there was nothing to keep guests interested- one can only read so much!
The hotel is in a good central location, very close to the railway station and a bus stop is just round the corner. There is a Tourist Information Office in central Fuengirola about 15 minutes walk from the hotel. Fuengirola is very flat making walking easier. There are lots of bars and restaurants although I never felt the need as the hotel was our preferred venue.
The beach is clean and 2 sun beds with thick mattresses and parasol can be hired opposite the sister hotel, Yarramar, about 3 minutes walk from the Angela for 6 Euros a day instead of the standard 10 euro charge. This is at the Riviera Beach club.
Public transport is cheap and efficient.More
