This hotel is located on the boulevard, a 5 minutes walk to both Puerto Deportivo and the Plaza de Naranjas. This makes the location the best spot in town. The hotel is as Spanish as can be, from the smell of eau de cologne in the reception to the floor to-ceiling-marble in the bathrooms. Breakfast is very extensive and good,... More

The breakfast buffet was excellent & catered for every taste. The hotel grounds & pools were also to a high standard and very well maintained. The private beach was a slight let... More

Great location on beach but close to the old town. Two pools, one more suited to families and the other with lanes for adults. Excellent breakfast, and very good, reasonably priced food at lunch, etc. Rooms were slightly dated but still comfortable and pleasant. Very good gym included

This hotel has a perfect location to the beach and old town. From the moment we entered the hotel we were greeted by a friendly staff. We had lunch twice on the terrace with beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea. The menu is a bit limited on food selections, but what we did order was tasty. I also booked a... More

we were originally booked at the Fuerte in an Exclusive room for 6 days and ended up extending it twice for a total of 11. While the price is rather high, it was worth every penny. Breakfast was great, the reception staff and maids were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Having use of the exclusive room which had snacks and drinks... More
