“Cannot fault it”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

On arrival we learned we were on the 12th floor. We had a look and decided (although the views were stunning) that it was not for us. Reception were brilliant and moved us to the 5th floor which suited us better. Reception were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was fine, we asked to look at the upgrade room (very nice) and that is the the one we will book next time. Every room has a flat screen telly with english programmes which we found handy for keeping up to speed with the news. The food was very, very good. The restaurant staff were also very friendly, efficient and again nothing was too much trouble. The hotel overall is immaculately clean. Plentiful supply of clean towels etc. Plenty of hot water at all times of the day and night.
Entertainment is on two floors so you can select from 2 shows every night. Thompsons entertainers Mel and Dani were fantastic. Really talented girls with great senses of humour and very friendly to all age groups.
We will CERTAINLY go back and we have NEVER done that before. Can't wait.

Room Tip: Upgrade rooms have views of sea and pool and get the best of the sun. Pool view standard rooms ha...

Lovely location, Nice room overlooking the pool with a great view and plenty of sunshine. Good food, friendly, helpful staff, great pool side location for sunbathing and viewing of the promenade and beach. The 8 KM long promenade is great for walking by the sea.
Good entertainment by day and some evenings : Mel and Danny really worked hard at this. In the show time, 9.30 pm onwards : We had a very entertaining comedian one night, and a first class Spanish traditional dancing group on another. and some good singing put on by Danny and Mel.. Also, every evening , from about 7 pm until late,we saw many guests enjoy a singing artist in the main lounge/bar and dancing as well. However overall not as good as the shows we had last October. Have the talented staff gone on the cruise ships ?

Clean swimming pool, but it was too cool to really enjoy for long. The Jacuzzi was warmer but not what we experience at our David Lloyd Club in Cardiff. The temperature was about the same as our outdoor pool in Cardiff.

Carmen and Gloria in the pool side bar : many thanks for you welcoming manner. Likewise to Carmen and the lively Graciola in the restaurant !

Local tips : you can buy a 4 Litre bottle of water for Euro 1.5 in the pool side café which will fit in to your room fridge, and a UK daily paper in a nearby shop for Euro 2.20. The pool side bar has some free UK papers for reading and returning for others , but they disappear very quickly ! There is a large supermarket about 5-10 mins walk away which is very well stocked. And a chemist in one of the shopping streets behind the hotel There are regular return boat trips to Benalmadena from the harbour that's about 15 mins walk away. Euro 13.00 return and takes about an hour each way. Lovely trip and the place is well worth a visit.

HOTEL YARAMAR
My wife and I have recently returned from another great holiday at the HOTEL YARAMAR in Fuengirola. Our lasting impression of this hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff and although there are a significant number of reviews that suggest that the decorations and furnishings require renovating we don’t consider that this is a major issue as the hotel is kept exceptionally clean and everything works as it should. The hotel is situated on a quiet part of the sea front and the bedrooms either face the sea and have the sun in the morning or the swimming pool which is situated on the roof over the dining room and have the sun in the afternoon. The dining room offers a very good selection of food which is of good quality and cooked well, with the exception of the bacon, and as far as we were concerned we never had a problem with it being cold. As a Gold Hotel it is fair to say that it does tend to attract the older age group, particularly in the winter and low seasons and the style of entertainment caters very well for this group of guests. It was a disappointment to us that Thomson did not have a Gold Production Team while we were there this year but Mel and Danny worked extremely hard to keep us entertained both day and evening. We enjoy the Thomson Gold environment and have visited most of the Gold hotels in Spain and this is one of the best and we certainly hope to be going again next year.

The hotel is nothing special but clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The food is very good, lots of choice.
The room was a little disappointing, not the standard we normally get with Thomson Gold at all. I was the first time I have ever had to pay extra for a fridge!
The pool area was nice and well looked after.
The entertainment was poor. Quizzes?!? Out of tune signers and a dreadful (really dreadful) comedian.
Previously we've had great experiences with Thomson Gold so we'll give them another go.

i enjoyed my stay at the yaramar. time of year i guess or expect to have many elderly guests. (april) but this should not disappoint as the location and especially the food is superb. staff friendly with a good sense of humour.
rooms do need to be upgraded though. except for this i would give it 4 star, but in light of what ive just said about the rooms i think 3+ is more appropriate.

This was our third visit and we were not disappointed, it was another wonderful holiday. Going in the Easter Holidays there were mostly older people which suited us fine, the food was excellent as normal with a good selection even for me. I am fussy and don't eat meat. The pool was lovely but we did wish that the spa had been warmer. We also discovered an indoor spa and sauna which was nice. The entertainment team were first class as was the comedian and the resident duo. Thanks we will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice but if you have a bit of vertigo, I would say not to go on the upper floors...

Just got back from a very pleasant break, despite a couple of days of rain, and felt I wanted to respond to a couple of points made in previous reviews. We stayed in a superior room ( well worth it for the fantastic views and extra space). We emailed the hotel with a request for a particular room before we went, and received a prompt reply saying that they would do their best. We got the room we asked for, so yes, they do read their emails! Also, anytime we wanted extra tea or coffee we either rang reception and they sent it up, or asked our maid, who more or less told us to help ourselves from her trolley. On the whole, we found this to be a perfectly pleasant hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, good food on the whole, comfortable room. Entertainment very much a personal choice, but we did enjoy listening to a singer called Silvio.

Room Tip: The superior rooms have more space and fantastic views.
