We stayed for three nights in a Junior Suite at the rear. The room was very spacious and also had a very good sized terrace. It was meant to have a sea view BUT what the hotel website doesn't say is that Junior Suits are only on the 1st floor therefore the sea view is very limited, and there are... More

Third visit. First time a classic room,avoid very noisy. Sea-view is essential . A middle aged clientele. Breakfast good. Dinner buffet not. Excellent sun loungers and bar staff good. Front desk are not problem solvers. Gave us a sea-view room and took it off us the next day. A great location.

Thank you very much for your third stay and for your review which will help us improve. Indeed as we are located in the center of Marbella, the classic rooms (no sea view) can be a bit noisy. We gave you a free upgrading upon your arrival (we were short of classic rooms) and had hoped you would be able... More

We stayed here for four nights on a recent trip to Marbella while touring Andulicia area. The property is on beach in a great location near old town for shopping and dining! The rooms are slightly dated but with large terraces with sea view rooms. The hotel and rooms are very clean. The breakfast is very good as well as... More

Just back from a four night stay at the El Fuerte hotel and had a great time. The hotel is in an excellent position with the beach on one side and the town/old town on the other.

We stayed here for ten days this September. This is a great hotel in a fantastic location. We had a sea-view room and it was great to sit out on the balcony at the end of each night and soak up the atmosphere. The room was clean and spacious and the air-conditioning worked wonders. The check-in staff were very friendly... More

Thank you for rating the hotel as excellently located and for your feedback with the things we should improve. We take this as a present and an opportunity to better serve our guests. Regarding the items stolen around the pool, it happens very rarely. So sorry it happened to you. Both pools, as you could see, are supervised. However, guests... More

Having stayed 10 years ago I knew what we were in for, but had hoped they might have jazzed things up a bit. It's a perfect spot if you can ignore the dated public areas, and we were disappointed with our dark and dingy junior suite (classic mistake in that it looked absolutely nothing like the website picture). But we... More

Just returned from a week at this hotel, our 7th straight September visit, and there seams to be a massive drop in customer service, although all the staff seam to be the same year after year. With 25% unemployment in Spain, and 60% youth unemployment, you'd think they'd be delighted to have a job. Hotel was nearly full, but, although... More

This Hotel located in front of the beach is fantastic! Had a great view from my room of the mediterranean sea. Good service, fitness center and 2 pools. Marbella old town is at only few walking minutes. I miss all this.
