Wonderful staff, beautifully appointed in Mexican style, kitchen served us a good reasonably priced breakfast with lots of coffee. The room was clean, great linens, and lots of hot water. Nice television. No Wi-Fi in the room but it was available in the lobby. The river walk, Malecon is one block away, as is the Fort and the central square.... More

Loved the gardens and the central patio of the hotel, it's like a museum, I really felt like the hotel staff wanted to make a great stay for me. They care for their customers. The food was very good and Miguel the waiter was so good to us.

The Hotel El Fuerte is in the perfect location in Marbella! Near the Old Town ,bars and the beach! It is comfortable with very good service! We have stayed many times and it does not disappoint! This is not for those wanting the nightlife and buzz of Puerto Banus!

This hotel could not provide basic facilities expected from a place that claims to be 4*. The swimming pool was not working. Granted, maybe it was low season but still it was 32 C during the day. The hotel did not have any sunbeds! The owner does his best to save the day, provide some towels to put concrete roof... More

We stayed here at the end of our El Chepe ride for a day before heading back to Chihuahua on the train. It was a huge, rambling old mansion with interior courtyards and sweeping staircases, but it was so crammed full -- furniture, potted plants and Mexican kickbacks -- that it's charm was smothered in stuff. The rooms were comfortable... More

This hotel grew on me bit over time but overall I wouldn't stay there again. Both times I was there I had trouble with hot water, noisy marginally functioning air conditioners, and lack of towels. The rooms are very dark and the dining room may or may not be open. The internet did not work. If the owners were actively... More

Treat yourself to a stay at this beautiful, historic hotel! I have stayed there twice bad both times was reluctant to leave. It has spacious, clean rooms that are air conditioned and there are several truly gorgeous patios and open air seating areas. The restaurant and bar were closed....but there is world-class dining just a block away at the Hotel... More
