This was our honeymoon present from my parents, a two-week stay half-board in the Hotel Yaramar.
From the moment you set foot in the entrance hall you can see the hotel is of a very high standard: the reception staff and concierge are very efficient checking in and moving your luggage to your room.
The food is standard fare for large-scale Spanish hotels: a buffet-style system which works well in so far as you're able to take as much as you want and as long as you want. It does feel slightly "works cafeteria" style however, and with us being there for a fortnight the temptation was to have a number of meals out - particularly as some night the food, whilst all edible, was not the most inspiring.
The entertainment staff were, in the main, very competent and worked hard through the day to keep the residents entertained. The availability of quiz sheets each day, and numerous pool-side competitions meant that there were plenty of things to do if desired, although the majority seemed to prefer soaking up the sun pool-side with a drink and a book.
The evening entertainment was professional, with some good performers across a range of entertainment genres: singers, comedians, and tribute acts were plentiful. The only disappointment was the lack of an encore from any act, and likewise the entertainment staff themselves seemed to make a bee-line for the door when the show finished almost as fast as the audience - there was no encouragement from them for people to stay for the disco or another drink: a shame as one of the top entertainers in the venue is the bar manager (who seemed to have aspirations to be an entertainer judging by the range of costumes and props appearing from the back room of the bar!)
The hotel itself is in a prime location in the centre of the resort, with it's own beach on the opposite side of the road. There is also an outdoor pool and spa for those who like swimming, which is located on the first floor so is private from passers-by on the street (although I was slightly concerned about the pool and that amount of water being located immediately above the restaurant area!)
