“disabled rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

My wife and myself have just returned from a holiday in this hotel and we were very dissapointed in the disabled room we had .
The bathroom had a handrail for the toilet but the one for the shower was out of reach for my wife the shower only had curtains so the water went all over the b
bathroom floor the reception said they would get extra towels to mop up the water
We paid a lot of money foir our stay and we were very dissapointed we wont be going back.

Yet again a warm welcome from the hotel staff. Nothing is too much trouble for anybody, A good choice of food in a very efficiently run restaurant. Special thanks to Maria, Caroline and Tatiana for the advice on 'egg fee' products as my partner has a severe allergy. Rooms very comfortable, can't wait to return.

Just returned from a week at The Florida Hotel Fuengirola. Couldn't fault it! It was clean, the food was fantastic - very difficult to please everyone from various countries with differing tastes, but the chef managed it. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, joining in with the guests during the evening entertainment, they seemed to be very happy working there. We were lucky with the weather so were able to get out and about. Lots of comfy sofas and chairs in the huge reception area and a quiet/card room on the first floor again with comfy sofas and chairs. Bathroom spacious with a large walk in shower. Tea/coffee making facility in room together with a small fridge and also flat screen TV. Entertainment every evening with some great acts - Ricky Lavazza was one of the highlights, VERY good and VERY professional. Well done Florida Hotel.

We have now returned back to the Florida and this visit will be our fourth. The staff are lovely nothing is too much trouble and that follows through from the housekeepers and restaurant service to bar staff and reception. This hotel is spotless from the top to the bottom we could not point a finger or criticise each and every time we have come to stay the standards remain the same. So we say a big thank you to all the staff for making our holiday very enjoyable. May you all continue to keep up the good work and may we always keep returning.

Just returned from a November two weeks at the Florida Spa in Fuergirola. The same high standards, friendly staff, good food and ambience of the hotel prevail and so popular to return to it as it is value for money, in an excellent position just back from the promenade and an efficient staff await you to do whatever they can to make your holiday with them a memorable experience.

Weather was mixed but always something to do in Fuergirola and the basement Spa is a delightful way to end a busy day, relaxing in its warm water.

Will return again in May to another holiday.

Room Tip: High floors are good - sea view or pool side on a high floor will give you views of Furegirola.

Our room was a good size with twin beds,walkin shower with good pressure, air con, a fan, fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, safe, and balcony. It was well equipped with chairs, table, and furniture for the balcony. The shower gel etc in the bathroom were very usable and replenished every day. Sheets were changed twice a week and towels daily if required.
The reception team, the maid and restaurant staff were all very helpful and friendly.
The food was an excellent buffet service with a great choice including several different types of fish, hot and cold meats, cheese fruit etc. My only criticism is that the hotel caters for a mainly British guest who like their meat "well Done" so I found it a little overcooked for my taste, but with the great choice this was not a problem. Some food is cooked on the griddle and can be cooked to taste
We had a very enjoyable stay despite the uncharacteristic bad weather and the hotel did everything they could to entertain you during the day. The evening entertainment programme was a little restricted but catered for the needs of the guests.

Room Tip: A high floor room has better views of the marina and bay.

Apart from agreeing with all the positive reviews about this hotel I can only add that we stayed at one of its sisters last year - the Yaramar. By comparison, the Florida has a smaller pool area and no activities, such as pilates, which you'll find at the Yaramar. The room was about the same size (quite small) but the bathroom at the Florida was bigger and more modern, with a powerful shower but no bath.

The food was perhaps a little better at the Florida, though I don't remember having many complaints last year at the Yaramar.

Both hotels cater more for older residents but we found the average age at the Florida - about 58 I'd say - was quite a bit lower than the Yaramar's. It's the time of year that attracts older guests rather than particular hotels.

In terms of location there's little to choose. We had a room overlooking the marina, which was nice, but it only got the sun until about 11am. Rooms overlooking the pool get the sun for the rest of the day. The same applies at the Yaramar.

The third sister hotel, the Angela, is undergoing refurbishment at the moment but I imagine this will be similar in many respects to its siblings.

Be aware that the prices of these hotels vary quite a lot. We chose the Yaramar last year because it was cheaper than the Florida when we booked, and we were attracted to its larger pool area. This year, the Florida was cheaper, even though it has a higher rating with Thomson. As for the activities, if you like that sort of thing to loosen you up in the morning and find yourself at the Florida, I suggest you take the 10-minute walk along to the Yaramar and join in with their classes. I'm sure you'll be welcomed with open arms; they're not exactly crowded!

I hope this comparison was useful.

Finally, I must correct another reviewer who said that the pool was closed due to being out of season. It was drained to carry out some minor repairs for a few days (and it rained on all of them). It was refilled, fresh and clean, just in time for only our second sunny day of the week.

Thanks a lot for writing such a detailed review about Hotel Florida and its sister hotel the Yaramar. As you well said the Angela has been refurbished and we are very happy with the results as now it is more inviting and much comfier. We hope to see you back at the Florida or at either of its sisters!
