Imogen and I had also purchased a football (soccer) guernsey for the Barcelona team which we noted along the trip that he wanted. To source the correct size we had told him in Barcelona that I would be buying one for my brother who was a similar size to him ;).
All packed up i was feeling a mix of excitement and nostalgia, it would be strange to travel on without Ruben and Mette who I had been with for 3.5 weeks.
... around for her. A pleasant surprise when she returned to have a cake delivered, topped with candles 2? as Ruben could not find a 5, and to be sung Happy Birthday to (a slight give away when she returned was the staff coming to confirm her name again).
Back at the house we said our farewells to Mette as she was leaving for Denmark in the early hours of the morning. Hopefully I will meet her in Copenhagen or have them visit

So while we were getting freezing cold drinking our last drink we figured that everyone we had come in with was gone and even others arriving after us had left.. We were clearly hard core. haha. But we realised that you are supposed to have one drink in the ice bar, then you get cold and get to go sit out in the nice area of the bar out the front. Ha not for us though.
We couldn't find an ATM so slowly made our ...

So yeah most of Malaga was a joke; just getting wasted, sweating profusely in the heat, enduring reggaeton music at the clubs, staying out till sunrise, then sleeping till the afternoon. Only other stuff we did was hit the beach, with its ****** sand and ...

There are signs aplenty warning of falling rocks and whereas this might not feel too much of a threat to the average person, to me it's a gruesome reminder of being pelted about my head by falling rocks after a landslide while walking in Madeira. Probable death missed me by inches and has left ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Yaramar Hotel Fuengirola
I spent my 20th birthday at the Hotel Yaramar and it was certainly a holiday to remember. The hotel was beautiful, spotlessly clean and very luxurious. The staff were welcoming and continuously attentive throughout my stay. The vast variety of food was delisious and always well made and presented. The room was wonderful and included every home-from-home comfort. With an exceptional view of the beach and fantastic pool area I thought the holiday couldn't get any better. I was then suprised to come back to my room from celebrating my birthday to find a cake and card from management and staff, this truly made me feel that this was the first but certainly not the last time that I would stay at the Hotel Yaramar. When I received a Christmas card a couple of weeks ago I didnt think twice about going to book a fortnight for May 2005 in the new year!!
Yaramar the best in Spain
My wife and I have been going to The Hotel Yaramar every year since it was built sometimes twice a year and it gets better every time we stay there, it is the best holet we have ever stayed at We will be there next March for a month
Only someone with very exacting standards could find fault with the very fine accommodation and food offered by the Yaramar. The restaurant is very well run and offers a wide ranging menu with the emphasis on local specialities, particularly fish landed at the nearby harbour. Fuengirola is a relaxed and friendly place and is a good base for exploring the other delights offered by Andalusia. We shall go again.
This is a good hotel situated on the sea front. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Rooms were good. Sea views excellent.
Food was well cooked and there was a good choice.
Only drawback was lack of a pool facility caused in the main by the inconsiderate people who queue up at 08.40 to put their towels on poolside at 09.00. then disappear for hours.(were these Germans disguised as Brits?)
The beachbar and beach facilities were much better!
Hotel is a good centre for getting to Malaga(local train), Granada and Seville.
This hotel deserves the Gold status. Everything about this hotel is what you would want to make your holiday the best. The food was second to none, the friendly staff couldn't do enough for you, the entertainment staff always had a smile on their faces, and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definately recommend this hotel.
Fantastic Hotel.Fantastic staff.Fantastic food.Brilliant sea view.Good entertainment.What a holiday should be.can be dear to book but worth it.
The Yaramar is the Best!!
We stayed here in June 2004 and have enjoyed every part of the hotel. The room was spacious and very clean, overlooking the beach and the main road. This did not detract from the pleasure of our accommodation.
The staff were excellent and made sure we had everything we needed. Entertainment was very good and we enjoyed all of it. We would certainly go back to the Yaramar.
Returning next week for the third year in a row.
Tried others but this is the best, food great location great in fact a great holiday will be had by anyone staying at the Yaramar
Have just got back from 4 weeks at the hotel Yarama this is the fifth holliday we have spent there and it is still the best hotel we have ever been to in fact it gets better every time we go We will be booking again to go there next March
This Hotel is a Thomson Gold and really lives up to it. We stayed there last year and really couldnt have asked for better. The food and the cleanliness of this hotel is really outstanding and the entertainment was brilliant especially Ashley, he was FANTASTIC!.
