Visited first time early November. Weather was lovely as the hotel. Food excellent. Varied and really nice salad selection. Room cleaned daily.. Thomson reps on hand at all times if needed. All in all we enjoyed our stay., but if you want it to be perfect.....take your own pillows!!!!

On a downside, and no fault of the hotel. There were 2 incidents that I heard of where pickpockets were active and successful. It did cause havoc to those who were the victims. So beware regarding this problem.

We stayed at the Yaramar for one week, the hotel location is perfect, and we had a nice 14th floor ocean front room. The hotel crowd was mainly GB folks, 75 y/o +

The good:
Location
Clean room
Breakfast ok

Not so good:
Front desk staff, efficient, but not friendly

The bad:
Quirky elevators
Low pressure shower

At the beach:

Nice but smelly, there is constant sour smell.
Sea water temperature was freezing (Sept 24 to Oct 4).
At the beach restaurant the food is very bad.
Lots of small annoying flies.
5 Euros for 2 chairs and one umbrella

Have just returned from a great stay at this hotel. The service was excellent and just what you'd expect from a 4-star hotel, nothing was ever too big an ask for the staff.
All of the rooms have a sea view, and were very clean and also quite spacious.
The food at the hotel was very good, lots of choice and lovely presentation.
There was entertainment on in the evening in the patio bar, which was quite relaxed, and in the downstairs bar the Thomson Gold reps put on a different show every night, which we enjoyed.
The hotel is right on the sea-front, and the surrounding area has lots of bars and restaurants to choose from, and is only a few minutes away from the train station if you want to explore further afield.
Overall, enjoyed our stay very much and can't wait to go back!

The Yaramar is situated in a great location. Directly across the road from the beach. Next to loads of cafe's and bars and restaurants. 5 min walk to the train station which easily gives you access to benelmadena, fuengirola, malaga, the airport and various other places of interest.
The hotel itself is very nice. well maintained and very clean. Rooms streach over 15 floors with 4 glass elavators. We were on floor 12 which gave us a great view of the beach and the sea.
The restaurant operates on a first come first served basis and is open from 5.30 until 9 for dinner. Dinner is buffet style and you would have to be really really fussy not to find something to eat. Plenty of fruit and vegetables various meats such as chicken, beef, pork and lamb. Various desserts and different soups each evening. Breakfast was also pretty amazing and you can choose from the usual fry up items as well as fruit, yogurts, cerial, breads and pastrys.
The hotel has a main bar which normally has a singer at night and in the downstairs bar there is a free show every night hosted by the thomson holidays team. these shows normally last from 8pm until midnight and range from comedy to musicals and are all very professional. its worth noting that happy hour lasts from 8pm - 10pm a beer was approx 1 euro 60. Which is by far the cheepest in resort. pretty impressive from a 4 star hotel!
The bedrooms are nice. Basic but nice. You have tea and coffee facilities and a free mini safe as well as free english tv which as various channels including BBC1, ITV, ITV2 AND SKY News. The only disappointing thing was that you had to hire the mini fridge if you wanted to use it. Maid service was daily and complementary items include beach towels, toothbrushes and paste, soap and shampoo etc.
Theres a sauna and gym available to use free of charge although gym equitment was dated and basic.
The hotel has its on terrace pool which is on floor 1. its a nice pool area with a rather nice snack bar/restaurant. the coffee is to dye for and there were plenty of sun loungers the only negative is the pool is not heated and is freezing cold even at 5pm when the sun has been beating all day long.
The reps in the hotel were fantastic and really couldn't do enough for you. infact in some of the converstaions i over heard them having with other guests i really did feel that they went over and above the call of duty.
The only negative i had was with one of the reception staff who weas dismissive and at times rude. If you require any assistance at all I 'd advise against speaking with the female on the desk as she was rude and unhelpful. I wont embarass her by naming her.
At night you can walk from the hotel to neighbouring resorts. the promenade is very flat and its a safe and enjoyable walk. I'd also recommend booking the trip to Gibralter with the rep at the hotel. There are 2 trips. one is a basic shopping trip while the more expensive one includes a mini bus tour of the rock and also a tour of the caves. we did this and thought it was amazing. you even get to see the gibralter apes up close and personal! This tour is roughly 55 euros per person, but like i said, well worth it.
If you are booking you own flights and accommodation like i did then it worth knowing that you can get the train from airport to hotel for 2euros 25 per person one way. this compares to 40 euros each way for a taxi. So if you are able bodied and dont mind a 5 min walk from the station to the hotel then this is best option. the train takes 25 mins and is direct. Hope this review helps.
