First bad thing was the gym! That is not gym its empty room with 2broken treadmill and 1set of dumbell. Second was the beach. You have to pay for the sunbed. The beach is public and dirty !

The room are big, modern and have comfortable beds. The large surrounding areas are well-kept and have a nice pool area. It is a big hotel with many guests, which makes the buffet area a bit crowded. Therefore we chose to eat in the a la carte area instead and surprisingly we had one of our best "hotel food" experience... More

I stayed in a one bedroom apartment and had more space than I knew what to do with. The apartment was 2 floors with 2 balconies, one on each floor. The furnishings were perfectly fine although the couch was stained and could have been replaced. The kitchen is big enough to prepare meals and even has a washer/dryer. If you're... More

As a four star hotel, we found Fuerte Estepona to be a very good hotel. Our two bed Ocean View Suite was lovely with air-con that worked perfectly throughout our 11 nights. The pools were beautiful and our 5 year old son had a fabulous time. As vegetarians (non-meat; non-fish; non-egg eaters), we are quite accepting (having been to Eupore... More

WE attended with a large group and found the hotel and staff excellent, great facilities with plenty of sun loungers available around the pool areas. The staff were very helpful and the entertainment at poolside was enthusiastic at all times. There was a very varied buffet at lunchtime and in the evenings which was reasonably priced.

We stayed as a family for two weeks all inclusive. The hotel is nice and spread out over a large site. The room we had was large albeit it had some disappointing aspects i.e. the shower had no curtain so it flooded the bathroom floor every time it was used and the aircon was not powerful enough to cool the...
