The Yaramar is a pleasant enough hotel with an entertainment programme catering for the older british holiday maker (nothing wrong with that I hasten to add). However, guests aged 55 and under may feel a little "out of place" and may not enjoy the entertainment provided (unless of course you like sun bed aerobics and the odd sing-a-long to a Vera Lynn song whilst sipping your sherry!)
The hotel in our opinion was clean and efficient with 4 speedy glass lifts to shuttle you up to your room (no good if you suffer from vertigo!). Rooms are comfortable and spacious but as mentioned by others, have a fridge that is locked unless you pay the rental for the week (approx. 15 euros). We always take a dim view of things like this. If you book a decent hotel, you shouldn't get charged extra!
The food was plentiful and of a good quality with efficient and friendly staff.
Outside the hotel is a nice beach although it can get very busy with local families during high season. There are several bars in the local area (just behind the hotel) and some very nice tapas bars in the town centre (head for the old square and check out the Theatre bar if you want a natter with some ex pats.)
We visited Mijas whilst there (a pleasant trip) and ventured into Marbella (very over rated and not worth the bus ride).
Overall a pleasant holiday for 1 week, however I doubt we would return due to the age of it's target audience and the limited bars / shops close to the hotel.
Surprisingly the pool sun beds get taken very early (can't blame the Germans this time!!)
