Great Location

Just returned from 2 weeks in the Yaramar,firstly we were treated to very hot weather,lovely.Our first impressions were good, it's in a fabulous location, opposite a lovely beach, with beach bar. The hotel itself is clean and well maintained,our room was on the fourth floor on the front of the hotel with a fantastic sea view. The rooms were adequate,maybe the bathrooms could do with an update, our bed linen was changed several times over the fortnight.The air-conditioning was very weak and with the temperature being 35+ it was sometimes a struggle to get cool. The hotel has 4 lifts with a glass viewing window, a nice touch. In other Spanish hotels we've been in getting a lift can be a problem, no such problem here. The pool area is lovely, a credit to the young man who is constantly cleaning, there's a bar with snacks and drinks, also happy hours twice a day.There is also a hot tub. As other reviewers has said, the sunbed situation is a problem, the pool area opens at 9.00am the queue starts around 8.00am, if you turned up at 9.00 you wouldn't get a bed, towels left on the beds while people ate breakfast,there is an hour limit but know one takes any notice, I did see on one occasion staff removing towels though. The entertainment is quite varied, better than quite a few hotels we've visited in the past, plenty of daytime activities around the pool, we didn't participate, but many did. The evening entertainment was sometimes outdoors around the pool, with happy hour being out there also from 8.00/9.30,happy hour also in the bar with entertainment on there, mainly singers, and happy hour downstairs in the disco where there is a stage with more entertainment, with quizzes, bingo and live entertainment. The Thomson entertainment team work very hard and do some of the shows themselves,they themselves are good singers. For us the biggest let down was the evening meal, it always seemed to be the same every night, very little variety, what there was, was hot and well cooked but a little samey, we ate out a couple of nights because of this. Breakfast was good though. We would still recommend the Yaramar, and leave you to make your own mind up.More

Linda B,

Enjoyable Holiday

Just returned from a weeks holiday at the Hotel Yarama. Firstly, the weather was superb and hotel was very good from arrival to departure. Reception staff were excellent, room and maid service very good everything you would need full hanging space in wardrobe for ladies dresses etc bathroom was quite large. As we were on 11th floor we found the lifts to be excellent Food was good and always hot the service in the dining room was excellent always plenty of table available. The entertainment was very good and the shows the team put on were unbelievable a must! The only problem was the sunbed situation having to queue in the corridor was horrendous it was to hot and no air, how this could be handled better by hotel is something i feel is necessary as it would put people off and then to see numerous beds with towels on and no people for long periods of time. Please if you have booked this hotel do not believe the negatives its a really good 4* hotel go and enjoy yourselves.More

Good hotel, great food and superb location

The Yaramar is a Thomson gold hotel - mainly Brits - adults only - although some children from other countries do stay. The rooms are clean and the safe is free. A fridge costs 10 euros a week and is worth the money. Kettle and cups are provided in the rooms. Pool towels can be obtained from reception for a refundable deposit. Free wi-fi as well. The food is excellent - always piping hot and replenished regularly. Salad bar had plenty of choice and as well as the daily 'joint' of meat, there is a grill every day. The Thomson entertainment team work hard - daily lunchtime and evening quizzes as well as the usual games of boules, etc. Choice of entertainment every evening - the rep shows were good and professional acts also fly in. Three bars are open at night so plenty of choice without needing to leave the hotel. That said, the hotel is right on the promenade and well placed for local bars and cafes and the beach. Ramps into the public areas where needed and the pool has easy access. We enjoyed our holiday at the Yaramar. - the only down side - too many people are saving sun beds and not using them for hours!More

Excellent adult only hotel

I have just returned from the Yaramar Hotel after a really lovely relaxing week with friends. First impression on arrival was good, beautiful, large reception with welcoming staff who quickly sorted room keys and directed us to out rooms. The hotel is 14 stories and being terrified of heights we had requested rooms on lower floors, this was acknowledged as we booked in and we were given rooms on the fourth floor. The room was spotlessly clean and ours overlooked the sea, a really stunning view up and down the coast. Our friends overlooked the pool but could also see the beach to the left. There was a 10 euro charge for the fridge but worth paying to put drinks etc in. I was surprised that the TV had British channels, didn't use it much but nice to tune in to the news from time to time. There is an easy to use secure safe in the wardrobe. The towels and sheets are changed everyday if you want although there are leaflets asking you consider whether you really need a change every day in an effort to reduce the amount of laundry and thus the impact on the environment. Air con is included and worked well. The pool is on the first floor with its own little bar and snack area. Lots of loungers with parasols but, be warned, you need to be a stealth ninja to get a lounger in the mornings. By 9am most of them are covered with towels if not people! The rule is, if the lounger is reserved with a towel but not occupied within an hour then the staff will remove the towels. This wasn't done routinely but I did see someone ask. The food in the snack bar was good. Which brings me to the restaurant. We were booked for half board so breakfast and dinner, buffet style. Breakfast is excellent, just about everything you can imagine and plenty of staff cooking things like eggs, anyway you like, to order. The tables are cleared continuously which is good. The dinner menu is good too, plenty of choice and all freshly cooked and replenished regularly so it doesn't matter what time you go for dinner. The only thing we found was that the constant clearing of plates make the dining room noisy, constant clattering of plates and cutlery, not so annoying at breakfast but more so at night. One of the options was to eat in the little restaurant across the road on the beach which was part of the hotel. We did this three times and it was much more pleasant and we were surprised that hardly anyone else did. The menu was not as varied but still good and waitress service instead of buffet style. The hotel is on the front, there is a road to cross to get to the beach but zebra crossings every few hundred yards so no problems getting across. Again, be quick if you want a lounger, 3 euros each, because they are all reserved with towels very early. Waitress service for drinks on the beach is very handy too. We hired a car for a couple of days, booked it in the UK through the Avis desk which is in the hotel lobby. I would definitely recommend a trip to Ronda and to Mijas. Both really beautiful and amazing views. We took the arranged trip to Gibraltar on the coach. We were told it took about 1.5 hours but actually if took nearer 2.5 hours, they need to be a little more honest with that. Glad we went though, had a great day. Don't pay the extra at the hotel to go up the rock and see the caves as it's cheaper to just go on one of the minibus trips that leave from the square. Highly recommend it, £22 each and the driver was full of local information. The entertainment is, in the main, aimed at the older clientele but there were some highlights for us. The four piece band in the bar were excellent as was Red Hot Broadway which were a 2 male 2 female ensemble who performed songs from the musicals. Amazingly talented. In order to give an honest opinion of this hotel I think it is only fair to point out a couple of downsides, small things that certainly don't impact on the overall rating of 5*. 1. The lifts are glass, all of them. I'm terrified of heights, hence the request for a room on a lower floor. I used the stairs all of the time, didn't do me any harm, in fact it probably did me good. But take this into account if you're like me. 2. This is an adult only hotel but there are some local laws that prevent discrimination against children and therefore locals can insist on taking them. This is in the small print of the booking. The room next to us had a crying toddler on a couple of afternoons. I think they were just visiting the occupants but annoying if you are having a bit of a rest before the evening. We didn't complain as we knew beforehand but I probably would have if it had continued. All in all, really good holiday, lovely hotel in a fantastic spot. The staff, without exception, were welcoming and friendly and a special mention to Rocio who is a little treasure.More
