We had never been to Marbella before, so we had no idea what to expect from the town, seaside or hotel. The hotel is an excellent establishment. Service is top notch from front desk to breakfast room to bar area. The full view of the sea from our room was worth the small amount of additional money we paid to... More

We've stayed here once a year for the last few years and always have a great time. Rooms are always comfortable (sea view rooms at front of hotel much better) and well appointed and the selection at breakfast is always excellent with everything you could ask for. Staff are also always very helpful and accommodating. The best thing about this... More

Stayed here for three nights whilst on a wedding planning mission for my sisters wedding! The location is brilliant, with a gate leading from the hotel right down onto the promendade beside the beach - so it's very central! It's also very near to the old town so everything's in walking distance. The rooms are nice and the staff are... More

We stayed for 2 nights when the weather was not what we had hoped for - mainly cloud and rain. This did not stop us from enjoying our stay at this hotel as the accommodation was very good. Our room on the 5th floor was a good size and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with... More

While the hotel is beautiful and well situated we went for a lunch in the outdoor café. The view of the sea and old "fort" was pleasant and relaxing, the food we had (with the service) was very good. For hotel food it was not expensive. The wines were good and the salads fresh and crispy. We ate, drank and... More

Stayed a week could not fault this hotel. Everyone so friendly and helpful , never seen such a breakfast spread anywhere as good . Had one evening meal very good value , but you need a good appetite to enjoy it all. It's position right on the sea front walkway makes it easy to get around, and it's close to... More

We have stayed at the El Fuerte Marbella before and you are always a little worried about going back, will it be as good? Well yes it is every thing was well managed and well presented. It isn't the cheapest hotel in Marbella but there won't be many (if any) better. We celebrated a birthday whilst staying at the hotel... More

We stayed here for a long weekened at the end of February 2015. The location of the hotel is perfect, right on the sea front and very near Orange Square with lots of restaurants. The room was lovely, quiet, nicely furnished with nice bathroom, plenty of storage space and a large TV. Breakfast was great, hot and cold selection with... More

Found this hotel via a friends recommendation. We visited in a large group of couples and singles for a big birthday bash and all enjoyed the hotel. It's right in front of the beach, worth asking for a sea view room to watch the sunsetting over the sea. The facilities and service, coupled with the lovely feel that the hotel... More
