we used this hotel for a long week-end away. It was very handy for the beach, old Marbella town,the port and shopping areas. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and seemed very happy as they worked. The food was excellent and cooked to order as well as a buffet section with lots... More

Just spent 8 nights at the Fuerte. The rooms were the perfect size and very clean. The breakfast buffet was over the top good. Our group was rather large and spent a great deal of time at the bar after our golf rounds. Those folks there were wonderful and very tolerant of our noise level. They make strong drinks so... More

We stayed for 3 nights on a bed and breakfast basis as our golfing break base. The service and facilities were very good and the location is excellent; the great pool that backs onto the beach all framed by palm trees, only a 5 minute walk along the seafront promenade to a fantastic choice of restaurants and bars, and a...

Our family (2 adults and 2 young children) have just returned from 5 nights in this hotel and were blown away by this hotel. From the second we arrived the staff couldn't have been friendlier and more kind to us and our children. Nothing was too much for them. Our room was a side sea view junior suite which actually...

Great hotel. Lovely staff. Try to avoid room *07 on any floor as the room door doesn't muffle the noise of tipsy guests! Room #03 is amazing and quiet on any floor. The higher the better and the sea views are stunning. Located at a quiet end of the promenade, you are only steps from the action. Breakfast buffet is... More

Great location at sea. Sun all day on our sea facing balcony in October. Rooms small but adequate with free Wifi, fridge & kettle - b.y.o coffee! Laminated wooden floors. Lovely but busy staff. Breakfast generous but get there before the crowds. Public areas well kept with fresh flowers. Gardens well maintained but pool area slippery. Lovely week, will be... More

Having stayed in many so called four star hotels that have fallen far short of expectations, what a pleasure it is to find one that comfortably exceeds them. Located on the seafront in the centre of Marbella, The Fuerte did just that. This hotel ticked all the boxes and then some. That it was at capacity when we were there... More

There are notices on every sun bed and all around the pool and gardens, that sun beds can not be reserved, and that the staff would remove towels and belongings from reserved beds. During the 4 days that we stayed at the hotel over 50% of the beds had towels on them, but no bodies. At no time during the... More

Thank you very much for your five star review and your stay. We are very grateful for your reminder about the sunbed non-reservation rule. We indeed do remove towels during the main pool season. However, in October, although the hotel is fully booked, a minority of guests use the sunbeds, and therefore we are a bit flexible with this rule.... More
