The Hotel Yaramar is a bit of an expert when it comes to beach breaks. The property is just a few seconds' walk from Los Boliches Beach, which is dotted with thatched parasols and sunloungers. Plus, it's surrounded by bars and restaurants.
At the hotel itself, the swimming pool is a real attention grabber. It's sunk into a large sun terrace on the first floor and it looks out over the Mediterranean Sea. There's a whirlpool bath here, too, so you'll have no trouble relaxing.
In the evenings, the hotel pulls out all the stops. You can take your pick from three bars, which include a traditional 'chiringuito' - a laid-back Spanish beach bar where sundowners are the order of the day. Food is served in the main buffet restaurant, and you can also eat at the à la carte place next door. Later, the entertainment ranges from flamenco dancing to comedy.

A lot of children!
This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel, and although we had an enjoyable week there were as few things that slightly took the edge off our stay. Although Thomson do not accept bookings for children, the hotel does, and we did notice a lot more children around than on our previous visits. Also, the hotel has changed the tea and coffee they provide.A small point, but the teabags were really awful! If the aim was to save money then this could be achieved by not supplying unnecessary toothbrushes,sewing kits and shoe shines. As other reviewers have mentioned, food in the buffet was lukewarm a lot of the time, and the canopy put in to try to stop the music in the atrium permeating the rooms doesn't work. We were on the 14th floor and on the one occasion we went to bed before 11 we could hear every song. However,because of the friendliness of the staff and the location we probably would return to this hotel-hopefully to less children and better tea bags!More

No drop in standards
We have just returned from our 11 day holiday at the Yaramar. This was our 6th visit and despite other reviewers comments we do not see any drop in standards. We agree that some areas are beginning to show their age but the whole hotel is kept very clean, everything works and the style of decoration is a matter of personal taste. The only issue we do have is that the very good selection and quality of food in the restaurant is spoiled by the inability of the buffet display counters to keep the hot food hot. The availability of a microwave oven for reheating your food is not the best solution to this problem. We had a very enjoyable holiday and the weather was fantastic, sunshine every day This is an extremely friendly hotel and we will be returning next year.More

simply the best
At the Yaramar you will be looked after by a caring friendly team of people who want you to enjoy your holiday. Nothing is too much trouble. The location is perfect just outside Fuengurola, near the local railway station so you can look around the area easily with frequent and comfortable travel.More

Good "OLDE" Yaramar
Just back from a very good 11 day break with wonderful weather staying at the Yaramar. Hotel is looking a little tired for a Thomson Gold and in need of some tlc but again the position on seafront and lovely Staff make it worth a visit, take a coffee into lounge off the dining room after breakfast which has wonderful views, reduction off beach loungers for being a hotel guest, loads of places to meander to and near to buses and train if you want to go further afield, Ladies lots of shops!!!!!. A couple of small moans, the noise from the evening entertainment (same old same old) travels to the higher floors even though the hotel has tried (unsuccessfully) to block the area off. Gold hotels advertise no bookings for children under 16 (reason why we picked the Yaramar against the Florida) then why was a family with a small baby there at meal times and a few children around the pool? fortunately all well behaved, so no problems. Nothing to do with the Yaramar but our homeward journey was a NIGHTMARE, a new plane with computer probs, take off aborted, but Thomson got a planeload of passengers into a hotel with a hot meal and breakfast, vouchers for lunch at the airport then free drinks on eventual flight home some 21 hours later, but still people want compensation, our complaint was lack of information at the airport from Thomsons.More

New experience at the Yaramar hotel Fuengirola
We have had many happy holidays in Fuengirola at the Yaramar's sister hotel, the Angela but decided to have a break from Spain. After four year we decided to return to the Yaramar. We were not disappointed and had a really enjoyable three week break. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly reception staff who advised that we had been given a room as requested on the sixth floor overlooking the pool and deck area. The room was spacious, clean and well presented. We had free use of the safe and other freebies included tea/coffee making facilities, soap, shampoo & conditioner. combs, tooth brush/paste, sewing kit. indeed, everything to cover emergencies for the items you forget to pack. The verandah was a good size and we enjoyed the sun from late morning to early evening. The room ladies were pleasant and responsive to requests for any changes we needed in the room. We had a problem with the kettle and hairdryer but after reporting them the maintenance man responded within a couple of hours and the items were replaced by new ones. A very friendly man who ensured that we were satisfied. Dining at the Yaramar was good with plenty of choice to meet any palette. There were occasions when the food was not very hot, these were rare. The dining room staff were fantastic, greeting every person with a warm, friendly 'hola' and helped us to use our limited Spanish knowledge. They are a real asset to the hotel and helped to make our holiday all the more enjoyable. The entertainment in the evening was acceptable but would be enjoyed by anyone who likes dancing. Part way through our holiday the entertainment was split between two venues and this, we believe, destroyed some of the atmosphere. We found ourselves returning to the sister hotel, Angela, where we found the entertainment more to our taste. the Hotel is ideally situated on the sea front which gives access to all parts of Fuengirola, the coastal train services and local bus services. A good holiday that we are sure will meet the needs of most people.More
