4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have been in August 2014 for a couple of days in Hotel Fuerte, Marbella. Drove by car to the Hotel that was very easy to find (thanks to GPS!). Although for getting off we parked right next to the main entrance (having many baggages), no staff came and felt responsible to open the entrance door for us. Staff can... More

Great staff, all within walking distance of the beautiful Christmas lights that are part of Old Town Marbella. We used the pool facilities, they have a heated indoor and also an outdoor pool. I asked to change my room and they did do with no fuss. The setting is great, well done. I will be back in March 2015. Job... More

Just got back from a 2 night weekend stay here. Came to Marbella for a weekend away and a spot of xmas shopping. Great location right in the heart of Marbella and just a stones throw from the beach and a very short walk to all the hustle and bustle that Marbella has to offer. Check in was a breeze... More

We stayed here for one night recently on our way back to Malaga airport. The hotel is in a great location near the sea front and within easy reach of the old town. It was easy to find and had ample parking spaces (for a fee of 12 euros a night). The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. We... More

We keep coming back here because the location is excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds and spotless rooms. Plenty of restaurants nearby and the old town is literally just across the road. Long promenade fro good walks all the way to Porto Banus if you have the staying power!

Highly recommend this hotel. Situated on the front, easy access to the beach via small gates or access to the town via main entrance. Only ate breakfast, but was excellent - served until 11.00am and finished off with a glass of Carva sat in the grounds overlooking the sea! The staff were lovely, very helpful and eager to please.

This was our last night's stay before leaving Spain. Although it was November, we wanted to stay by the sea. We couldn't have picked a better location. The staff was friendly and helpful. Since we were off season, received a great rate. Wish we could have taken advantage of the pool and outside deck in warmer weather. Rooms were comfortable... More

Family stay at the Fuerte Marbella. Really good hotel a step from the promenade, central Marbella and Old Town. We had a front sea view which I recommend as the views are wonderful, particularly early morning and late night. The parking is easy - charged at 12euros per 24hrs. The reception staff are bi-lingual, friendly and efficient. The public areas... More
