2nd time at this hotel (see 12 months previous review) the location is excellent for getting about, I am a young healthy 60year old and love being with well mannered different age groups. Although the hotel could be said that it's a little dated the hotel is clean ' i was on the 11th floor and our room was spotless' everything was always replenished each morning, coffee/tea etc, the dining room is very well organised, the staff work very well it making your stay as relaxed as possible. I would like to see the fridge included in the price of the holiday as it is already switched on and working (just locked)' as a 4star this would be expected'.When I book a holiday I check for location, cleaniness, pool, 4 stars, if it was 100% perfect it would be at the Ritz prices !!. There are plenty of sun beds and didn't have an issue finding one spare (early october). The hotel is a great base on the sea front for getting about, a 5 minute walk to catch the train to Malaga etc about 15 min walk to main bus area for Mijas, Marbella etc.

Room Tip: Higher pool rooms have sea/city rooftop views

We upgraded our room for only £20 per night so reasonable value. Arrived at our sea view room with fruit and wine on the floor outside the door. We took this in assuming it was for us and yes the view is amazing but it ends there.

Room unclean as per photos.

Free trips included but you have to go to an orthopaedic bed buying event first, how odd.

Food was included and quiet a choice if you have no teeth this is perfect. Service not brilliant.

Left next morning on a flight we had to buy as no more rooms from Thompson. Do not let them put you in this hotel.

Swimming pool packed with the OAP's and the whirlpool dirty and damaged

Dirty rooms

Dangerous sockets

Room Tip: Different Hotel a must

the yaramar is very central for all ameneties and trains and buses are plentiful very cheap. we came here 10 yrs ago it has not changed much we found the food has not changed a very good a wide selection the entertainment is fair but they have happy hour from 8 /9 30pm my only fault we found is it does need updating especially the rooms having said that a very friendly hotel and could not fault the staff and the Thomson reps and entertainments team.

Room Tip: all rooms get the sun either a pool view or sea view

Some good things and a few not so good

This is basically a good hotel in a lovely location with many good things to recommend it. However, a few things about it are not quite so good so I will deal with those first:

It needs more lifts. There is a reason that there are seats and a book library by the lifts on each floor.
The fridge should be free (it is €10 per week). The safe is free incidentally.
There is no iron in the room (but there is a hairdryer)
The room, although quite spacious and kept very clean, is a little tired now.
This is the big one: The toilets in the attached Rivera Beach Bar are disgusting and the ladies was out of action for most of our stay.

Now for the good:

The staff were invariably helpful, friendly and efficient and in some cases a lot of fun.
The room was reasonably spacious and had a lovely balcony with a view over the beach and out to sea.
The food was generally excellent with a good choice (although the restaurant could get busy)
Keep an eye on the various happy hours, 2 drinks for the price of 1 - nice.
There were lots of Thompson reps available at the hotel and they were friendly and helpful.
This is the big one: The shows at 10:00 in the evenings were of a far higher standard than you would normally get in a hotel with the ones put on by the reps absolutely top class (and I am fussy where entertainment is concerned)

Now just a few general comments:

If you go over to Gibraltar take sterling, their Euro exchange rate is usurious. We saw lots of dolphins and some monkeys (much to my wife's delight)

The village Mijas in the hills above we found to be overrated and is best got to by taxi (€15 from the hotel)

Generally we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Yaramar and if we were to come back to Fuengirola again we would have no hesitation in choosing it again.

Food excellent constantly refilling and good variety. Pool was very clean with easy access could always find a lounger and brolly, hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Best views from higher floors, quieter, sea view rooms have sun afternoon and evening
