We have stayed in this hotel every April for the last 14 or 15 years and could not recommend it highly enough, but this year we are in a room right beside the lift which is a bit too noisy for me. I asked if there was an other room available and was offered an other room beside the lift... More

We stayed in this hotel in early April this year. The experience was first class from the moment we crossed the threshold until we left one week later. The hotel is ideally situated for Marbella, near to all the amenities that we wanted. The beach was just across the road, if you felt that you needed to go to the... More

We had a short weekend break here. The hotel is superb, immaculately clean, excellent friendly and efficient service. We had a standard/classic room which was more than adequate. Location is great, lovely gardens and pools literally a stone's throw from the beach. Lots of good bars and restaurants within 100 yards and beyond and a lovely (long) walk along the... More

I stayed here for a week. All the staff were friendly and efficient and the room, one with a largish balcony and side-view of the sea, was spacious, the bed comfortable, the bathroom all as one would wish. You couldn't really see the sea, but you could hear it at night, which was lovely. The public spaces - bar, lounges,... More

I booked a standard room, but asked for a high, quiet room. I even rang the hotel before to check that this was possible. On arrival I was offered a room that was on the first floor almost in the car park. To change I had to upgrade (an earlier review said that was €30 a night). I argued, and... More

Stayed at the Fuerte for four nights recently with family. It's an excellent hotel - situated right on the seafront with amazing views of the Med from the room balconies. The bar area is spacious and perfect to relax with a few drinks, which are reasonably priced. There is a nice outdoor terrace too if the weather is warm enough.... More

We were immediately impressed by the enthusiastic reception given to us by Vega. She was able to give us all the information needed.

Just returned from the El Fuerte after another wonderful stay. We have stayed here at least 10 times and it never disappoints, from the staff, the ambience, the cleanliness and the wonderful variety of food on offer at breakfast. It feels like you are actually in Spain with a lovely Spanish feel and a superb flamenco show once a week.... More
