Excellence but in need of some TLC
Our 2nd stay at this hotel. This hotel is spotlessly clean, stylish and friendly although somewhat dated. Majority of guests are regulars, mainly retired, enjoying an escape from the winter weather. Every member of staff is helpful and friendly giving 5* service. Restaurant is bright and airy, fabulous views and the food choice is amazing. Only criticism is that it is rarely hot and on occasion had to be reheated in the microwave. We noted that the ceiling where rainwater came through in December 2013 has still not been repaired and is discoloured and damaged. We found the beds hard and asked for mattress toppers which helped a little. The chair in the bedroom [and yes there is only 1 for 2 persons] is not comfortable. Likewise, chairs and settees in communal areas, although matching the dÃ©cor are extremely low and uncomfortable and very difficult to get out of once seated. The entertainment can still be heard from the bedrooms, last time we were on the 8th floor, this time the 12th floor and even the new roof over the entertainment area made little difference although the entertainment does stop at 11pm. In summary, this is still a very comfortable and friendly hotel which felt safe and secure and of course in a superb location with local transport nearby and we will return. We did view an 'upgraded' room whilst we were there and apart from the dual aspect the rooms are no bigger than the standard. Bed is a normal size double taking up less room than the standard twin beds giving the appearance of more space.. These rooms are only available through Thomson and in our opinion certainly not as nice as the standard rooms.More

Best holiday for a while
Have just returned from 2 weeks stay following a recommendation from a couple we met last year & it certainly didn't disappoint. The room was comfy and clean with a fabulous sea view & yes, the furniture needs updating but it didn't spoil anything. All the staff were friendly & efficient. The food was excellent with plenty of choice & was hot, which isn't always the case!! We enjoyed majority of the entertainment, especially the resident band Mellow Yellow, who have since finished here. Natalie & Jess had a great friendship which shone through when they were 'working' Jess had a wonderful voice but she also has finished here. We have travelled the world and The Yaramar has been the best holiday we have had for a long time, apart from cruising. Well done The Yaramar for giving us a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeksMore

Great location for getting out and about...
Nice clean friendly hotel, the entertainment is a little tacky however it is located close to all local bars and restaurants so we spent alot of time outside meeting the locals who are very friendly and helpful. My husband and I are in our early 60's and we did find it a little like an old folks home at times. The food is average and everything is wound down very early, we will go back again as we loved the local area its very safe and friendly, great for local bus and train services, we visited Torromolinos on the train and Benalmadena on the local bus.More

Great New Year Break at Yaramar
First stay at Yaramar and Fuengirola and thoroughly enjoyed our stay over New Year. We had a superior room on the third floor which was well worth the money just for the view. Don't think we have ever been in a hotel with a better view from the room. However, think it is time for maybe a refurbishment as furniture is looking a bit tired. Food the first few days was excellent but seemed to die off a bit towards the end of the stay. Gala dinner on New Year's Eve - food was excellent but quality of wine we thought was extremely poor, in fact I couldn't drink it at all. Service from staff at reception, bar, cleaners etc., was tremendous, could not fault anything. Entertainment most nights was very good. Lots of nice bars and restaurants all around the hotel. We particularly liked a restaurant called Zena 20 which is right next to hotel. Food was exceptional, we went for a lunch and then went back for an evening meal. Los Boliches has a very nice sea front and we walked along it for miles most days, weather permitting. Only complaint was there was a lot of dog fouling on the pavements. The first couple of days we were there was very windy but was very nice after that (shorts and T shirts). Cold at night though. We will most likely return to this hotel but not sure what it would be like in peak season, as could imagine the resort would be heaving. A previous reviewer has mentioned that she had money stolen from her room but safe is free and you have to put your own PIN in so not quite sure what happened there. We left things (not money though) lying around and nothing went missing.More
Great break away!
This was our first stay at the Yaramar, although we stayed in the area around eight years ago. It was a short break to celebrate our wedding anniversary, without the children. We chose the Yaramar for its location, but also that it has a decent pool area with towels, was a bonus. In the UK its advertised as an adults only hotel, and it also stated this in the reception area, but Spanish law means that if a family has booked they are not allowed to refuse them to stay. That said, when we stayed there were two children, so not a bother! The room was clean, and the beds comfortable. The toiletries were updated daily, and the room cleaned each day too. We booked B&B, and found the choice at breakfast was wide and varied, pretty hot and tasty. Chatting to other guests that stayed half or full board and they were all complimentary about the meals. The pool area was very clean, as was the pool, and the cushions on the sunbeds made them very comfortable to relax on. The daytime entertainment around the pool area was run by Thompson, and was ok. You could get involved or not, no hassle, sometimes we did, sometimes we didn't! But it was all good fun! We went out each evening, but think the entertainment finished around 11.00. If we were back before then we never heard it in our room and we were on the fourth floor. We stayed end October early November, the weather was great, and the hotel was far from fully booked, so no sunbed race! Signs are up saying no reserving of the sunbeds, and the pool bar served good snacks and lunches. Its fair to say a lot of Hotel Yaramar's guests are of a mature nature, but we had fun with them, and meant we were getting woken in the middle of the night by drunken revellers returning back!!! All in all, we had four fantastically relaxing days, and we are hoping to do the same again this year!!More
