Tired, tatty and unclean
Where do I start. Today we got home following a week here. We lasted 4 nights and then moved to a different hotel. I'll start with the positives. The location is brilliant, we booked a superior room and the view was amazing. The food was ok and you could always find something to eat. The Thomson entertainment team were excellent, far too good to be at this hotel with Nicolette, Guy, Laura and Keith working their socks off. Now for the bad bits.. The bedroom.. I don't think a penny has been spent on the hotel for years. The floors were visibly dirty, you wouldn't want to walk bare foot on them, the walls were marked all over, the furniture chipped. The air conditioning didn't work! We reported this and to the hotels credit they mended it within an hour (by shoving some cardboard in it!). The curtains had holes in them and I don't care to think what some of the stains on them were. To say we were disappointed was an under statement. We asked to move rooms but were told "it was one of the better ones!" We put up with it for 4 nights then moved to the sister hotel, The Angela. Thomson were helpful and sorted that for us. The pool area at the Yaramar is dated. The pool itself is good for a swim. The pool toilets are fowl with ripped carpet etc. There is rubber matting all around the pool which ripples up and is a trip hazard. The "aquarium" is where the entertainment is held. It's basically a throw back to the 1970's. It's dated and smells. It's called locally the "dungeon". Be careful with drinks down there... Numerous glasses haven't been cleaned properly and have lipstick on them!. The restaurant... When you collect your morning drink of orange etc check the glasses. You won't be able to find a clean one. The seating in the communal areas is that old and tired, you won't feel like sitting on them. I don't mean to sound disrespectful to the older guests who use this hotel but with a bit of greater attention from you, your love for this place will vanish when you expect it closely.. This is never a 4 star hotel, maybe once, but certainly not now.More

We were part of a family group of up to 19 ranging from teenagers to the elderly. The hotel staff were really friendly and cheerful throughout our visit. The hotel is rated 4 **** which must be historic. The public areas are not air conditioned and the dining room was stifling and humid. Breakfast is plentiful but uninspiring. We did not dine in but understand the food was okay. The rooms were clean and tidy. Entertainment is provided and of course the location is great.Overall, it was as we expected but the fabric of the hotel is very tired. More

Yet another great holiday at the Yaramar
Arrived back from two weeks at the Hotel Yaramar about a month ago. On arrival was given a room on the 11th floor overlooking the pool, (all rooms either face the beach just over the road or the pool with a side sea view. The room was comfortable & roomy although I agree with many people who say the hotel is getting a bit tired with a few maintenance issues (a loose towel rail in the bathroom & the tape on the balcony door to stop you walking into it had peeled off leaving a mess behind, not serious just messy), the room was always kept spotless however. In the main the public areas were in good condition, apart from the matting around the pool which in places was lifting & a possible trip hazard. The pool/sun terrace is on the 1st floor overlooking the beach; during our stay we had no trouble getting a sunbed. The terrace is the focal point for a series of daytime activities, games, quizzes etc, hosted by a four man (two boys & two girls) entertainment team who also do the evening entertainment in the form of a series of short cabarets & four production shows spread across the fortnight. If this isnât your thing there are plenty of bars & restaurants along the promenade, turn left for quieter bars, right will take you into the centre of Fuengirola where the bars are a bit livelier. Meals are taken in a restaurant between the ground floor (reception) & the first floor (pool terrace). The food was always hot & there was a good choice of meat & fish dishes along with a carvery every night. Back to the entertainment â a special word in praise of Keith, Guy, Nicolette & Laura; (Iâm told they get extra brownie points when theyâre mentioned in reviews so chalk another one up), they worked extremely hard all day in some cases starting at 10 in the morning & not finishing until gone midnight, despite this they were always enthusiastic even when they were struggling to get volunteers for activities, the shows were always excellent with all four being extremely talented, overall they made the holiday for both of us. Plus they were all genuinely nice people, I was travelling with my father who had lost his wife just before Christmas, & once they had found this out the amount of time they all spent talking to him & encouraging him was definitely above & beyond the call of duty, no relevance to the holiday but needed saying. Overall I would definitely go back to the Yaramar again but a bit of TLC on the rooms would make a big difference.More

Just returned from our second stay at this lovely hotel. I would like to thank all the staff for their hard work. They really are a credit to this hotel. Particularly Paola. Gloria, Tere who work at the poolside bar. These girls always have a smile for everyone and go the extra mile with all the guests. I would also like to mention Adrian one of the pool guys. He works really hard and is always willing to help whether you need a sun bed or need your parasol moved. I also requested the same room as three years ago and although the reception staff said they couldn't guarantee it they would do their best and guess what they managed it so obviously we were delighted. Restaurant staff always had a smile for everyone but so did all the staff. Entertainment team were great and kept everyone busy. A special mention to Lynn and big thankyou to this lovely lady who helped us on more than one occasion. Once again on behalf on my mum and sister thankyou to everyone for going the extra mile to make our holiday so enjoyable. Management be proud of all of your hardworking staff they really are a credit to you. Thanks again More
