We stayed at this hotel as part of a family holiday with two grown up children (18+) in August 2015. We booked through Thomson.
The good points were
The rooms are good and all rooms have a sea view and a proportion have a pool view too.
It is located near to the centre of Fuengirola and it was a short walk to all facilities
The food was good.
The staff were friendly and efficient
It has free wi-fi via a code from reception - however it keeps needing to be re-entered
The rooms have good air con
The not so good points were
One lift out of four was broken down for our entire stay which lead to long delays at breakfast time and evening meal (up to ten minutes wait). This hotel has 14 floors and the lift is imperative for most guests. We did report it and was told it was in hand whatever that means. But it was not repaired...
The entertainment was not good and we spent every evening out of the hotel as a result. Last year we enjoyed the entertainment at another Thomson Gold hotel which was excellent every night. Sp this was a disappointment
The rooms have only two plug socket points (for the kettle and TV) so charging phones etc was not ideal
Some mornings they run out of sausages and served hot dogs - yuk
There are not enough sun-beds around the pool for all guests and unless you join the saga of towelling the beds early morning you have to pay 20 euros for a bed on the beach ( the hotel discounted beds also go quickly) - Not acceptable and no sympathy from the reps
The gym is atrocious, really atrocious. Cannot understand how they can claim to have the facility - it has very few pieces of equipment and weights (4 pieces) and most equipment does not work and the space is used by maintenance for charging lights etc...
On balance, the location and rooms are so good that we would look forward to visiting again - just hope the negatives are addressed by the team at the hotel.More
Just returned from the Yaramar 2 days ago, this was our 2nd visit and we will return. We had a great rooms on the 11th floor over looking the pool and sea, we asked for rooms together as we were travelling with my sister and her husband, and a high floor and we got both. The staff were excellent and their service was brilliant. I celebrated my 60th birthday when we were there and on my birthday they brought me out a lovely birthday cake which was a great surprise and I would like to thank them all for the brilliant surprise, The food was great no complaints at all, the tables were cleaned as soon as you had finished, and what I loved was champagne with my breakfast every morning just lush. The weather was just great and we didn't mind having to queue every morning to get a sun bed no one was pushing or abuse they were all very friendly, and the chap that cleaned the pool was always making a joke when he let us in what a character. The entertainment staff worked very hard and they were very good. This hotel is a must as the location is excellent for the beach and the bars and shops, as I said we will return. Once again thank you to all the staff for making our stay so greatMore
We will be back
This was our 3rd stay at this hotel. I think that says a lot. The rooms are comfortable the food is great and the staff will always go that extra mile to please and help. The hotel is situated just across the road from the lovely golden sand beach. The beach is cleaned every day. You have special rates for the sun beds and umbrellas if you use the ones directly in front of the hotel. The sun beds are comfortable with soft padded beds.Hotel Pool towels available for 10 euro each, this is refunded with return of towel at end of stay. Outside the hotel are plenty of bars, restaurants , supermarkets and shops. There is a huge market every Tuesday about 12 min walk and is a must if you like shopping. The train is easy and cheap to use and about 3mins walk from the hotel. We love this hotel and can not praise it enough.More
WHITS-IS-BEST, Cardiff, United Kingdom
Recently returned from a week's stay here, can only reiterate other peoples positive comments, the hotel was all we expected, rooms were spotless and given clean towels every day, had room overlooking pool on high floor with great views. All the staff and reps were really friendly and helpful, and could not fault the food at all. Bit a rush for sunbeds as said before but you could usually get a bed at some point if you really wanted one! This was our first stay and are planning to return hopefully next year. Bio-parc well worth a visit, Thomson rep Katie organised tickets for us.More
A return vist
I am disabled whilst there are only a few rooms with wheelchair access they do not have walk in showers but there are always aids to hire to overcome that.These rooms are on the first floor so giving easy access to the pool area. The hotel has gone through some bedroom redecoration and aircon upgrade but the staff are so helpful and welcoming. The hotel put on entertainment each evening in conjunction with Thomsons and their entertainment team, Simon, Emily, Matt and Rebecca who this year were excellent, they have also now added evening entertainment with tribute acts two or three times a week, there is also alternative entertainment in the Patio bar on the ground floor every evening. The hotel is across the road from the beach and has a restaurant called the Rivera and guests can eat A La Carte one night rather than eating in the hotel restaurant. The Hotel is close to many bars and restaurants, near to train station and close to bus stops. It is about a 15 min walk into the centre of Fuengirola and to the harbour, in fact in a perfect place. Follow the beach in the direction of Malaga about a 10 min walk and you will come across the disabled access beach where lifeguards will assist disabled people in and out of the sea. The hotel is generally an adults only hotel but well worth a stay, in fact this is out 7th visit with more to come.More
