An infinity pool and a beach on tap are just 2 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 new pool, added for 2013, 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.

just got back 22nd Feb 2015
Just arrived back from the Angela and can genuinely say what a very nice hotel it proved to be. We had a room on the 5th floor on the "sunny side" and it proved to be a winner. The hotel is for the over 16's only and it provides great food and good entertainment for its target market. If you are looking for a lively experience then you may be better looking elsewhere. However, if like us you were looking for a quieter winter break with lots of "happy hours" and a variety of entertainment then this hotel could well be the one for you. It is well placed and only a short and flat walk from all the main parts of Fuengirola. Overall a very good hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.More

Great Winter Sun Break
I stayed at the Hotel Angela for a week with a friend for my 60th birthday. I travelled with Thomson Holidays. The hotel has a seafront location and is a short walk from the marina and main town, so it is relatively quiet. This is an adult only hotel. I paid extra for a room at the front of the hotel with a full sea view. There are two of these on each floor. All rooms have balconies with side sea view. The hotel faces east/west, so rooms on the South side of the hotel will get the most sunshine. In the summer, I suspect that the rooms on the north side would be preferable. There are 3 lifts to the 9 floors which worked very well. The room comprised of twin single beds, a wardrobe with separate hanging space (quite high up) 4 narrow draws and further hanging space, but no hangers. There is also an electronic free safe deposit box, but this can be tempremental and may not work! There is a bed side table, a small table with draw on which there is a small flat screen TV and a further side table which housed the tea and coffee making facilities - a great bonus - and a locked fridge under it. There is a charge to use this, but we did not avail ourselves of this. A good mirror is located over the table. The front rooms have a window and doors out onto the balcony making this lighter than other rooms. The balcony has a basic plastic table and two chairs. The bathroom had a walk-in shower, sink, toilet and bidet. All was clean and the maid service was very good. Bed linen is sheets and blankets. There are extra pillows in the room and if needed additional blankets can be obtained from reception. The room has an air con unit which also doubles as a heater. For my week the weather was very windy when we arrived and the heater was needed to take the chill off the room, but later in the week it was not needed. The TV has a number of UK channels including BBC1, BBC 2, ITV and Channel 4. Reception of BBC1 was not as clear as other channels. The hotel entrance is on the side of the hotel and can be accessed by stairs or one of two ramps on either side - great for pushing your case up! The reception desk is over on the right hand side and generally I did not avail myself of their services, once booked in. They will retain your passport overnight, or until you collect it. They also will give you your wifi code for the week. The wifi worked very well throughout the hotel. Off of the foyer are the lifts and access to all parts of the hotel. The lounge is fantastic. Large and bright and fitted with a wide range of comfortable chairs and sofas. It faces the seafront and so is a suntrap too. The lounge also hosts the main bar which has a happy hour for alcoholic drinks each evening. Downstairs is another bar and entertainment area which I think has its own happy hour at a different time. There is entertainment in the hotel each evening. A mix of acts and the earlier entertainment aims to get some up dancing, line, sequence or ballroom dancing. Then there are singers of various capabilities. Overall the entertainment is fine for the age of the cliental, mainly UK and over 60. There are acts on later in the evening too, but I was not around for any of these. The buffet restaurant is also on the ground floor. Breakfast is from 7 30 am and evening meal from 5 30 pm. You can sit where you want and tables are mainly arranged for couples, but in some areas it would be easy for 4 to sit together. The food was very good and varied both for breakfast and dinner. Lunch is also available. For breakfast there is cereals, breads, pastries, make your own toast, cheeses, hams and cooked meats, tomatoes, porridge, a selection of cooked breakfast items, set yogurts, fresh orange juice and tea/coffee. Evening meals comprise a range of salad starters with a fish or meat theme along with various cheeses and/or soup. The main courses are very varied both with and without sauces. Some look more appertising than others. They did do a good range of roast meats on different days. The desserts are on a different area and include cakes, ice cream, fruit, set custards, rice pudding, etc. You certainly don't need much for lunch! The hotel swimming pool (medium size) is on the first floor to the front of the hotel. It is outside of the pool/snack bar and has a great area just to sit around in the sun or to make use of the sunbeds. Off the snack bar is a room with a dart board, table tennis table and another games table. Most visitors are UK, but on the weekend the rooms also have Spanish visitors. I really enjoyed my stay and hope to be back next year for a fortnight. Many of the visitors stay for up to 3 weeks and may be there more than once a year. For its location and the price paid this is a very good holiday hotel - probably 3 star within the UK. The area is nice with a good prom to walk along. Food prices outside the hotel are very good and were cheaper than I had expected. There is a large supermarket nearby, up the road and turn left and keep going till you get there ( 5 to 10 min walk). There is a taxi rank immediately outside the hotel.More

Spent 10 nights at the Angela and had a lovely time much better than expected as we holidayed at the Yaramar last year which is a Gold Hotel and I can honestly say the Angela was as good if not better as we could throw a few shapes with our recently learnt ballroom dancing..staff lovely on all levels and entertainment excellent. We loved the young couple who played the keyboard and also the older gentleman who played the keyboard on another night (might add he did not even stop for a break). Hope to be back in October!! xxMore
DO NOT EXPECT TOO MUCH!
This Hotel is only available to Thomson customers in the UK. The bar and restaurant staff work extremely hard but reception staff are rude and uncaring and the cleaners could not care about standards. Do not bother about taking your complaints to Thomson either in resort or at home as they treat you with contempt.More

hotel angela in february
The review by Anne Brown is a fantastic and very accurrate description of the hotel and it's facilities. We stayed for two weeks from 8th February and our only moan was about the weather! The hotel is very central and the staff are friendly and helpful. Found the food excellent with plenty of choice and although the entertainment was not to our taste, we enjoyed watching the guests dancing. Very much an hotel for older guests, I suspect younger guests would find it rather sedate. Would like to sample a stay here in the summer as it was only the weather that spoiled our holiday from being perfect.More
