Great location, on the boulevard, meters away from the beach. We preferred to use the private parking directly in front of the main entrance (€13/day). If this outdoor parking is full, one can use the nearby public underground parking, which has direct access to the hotel lobby. Reception check in very welcoming by (many) multilingual staff. Although arrived after the... More

Found the Hotel to be very nice with its bar over the garden pool. Location is on the beach and lovely to stroll along the boardwalk and restaurants. Room was only a standard and not large but had nice balcony and view to the ocean. Clean and tidy.

Delighted to return to Hotel Fuerte for our summer vacation. The hotel has had many updates since we last stayed there, great to see the attention to detail. All the staff continue to present a welcoming atmosphere to the hotel; although the hotel was busy it was easy to get comfortable sun loungers near either pool thanks to their strictly... More

I have been going to this hotel for the last four years and it gets better every time. All the staff are lovely, very helpful, efficient and very friendly. The location of the hotel is superb and I strongly recommend this hotel to visit.

Stayed for 7 nights early July and I have to say one of the most relaxing and enjoyable weeks we have had as a family in a long time. We have stayed all along the Costa Del Sol staying in different hotels each time and I am very happy to say this is the best one yet. Located within walking... More

Perfect location in Marbella. The hotel is a little dated and on occasions the corridors smell of cigarettes - I suspect the carpets need changing - but the hotel is very clean. The rooms are kept very good and are a good size. Our sea view room was perfect - a little bit of sun in the balcony during the... More

Stayed for two nights on a business trip with my husband. Marbella would not be our choice for a holiday and have only been once before and stayed by Puerto Banus which we did not like with flashy people. This hotel is by the od town right on the beach. It has a lovely relaxed laid back feeling. We opted... More

We have been staying at the Hotel El Fuerte in Marbella for many years now. It is a hotel with traditional values which has evolved gradually over the years rather than changing dramatically. The hotel has a fantastic location - front-line in the quieter area between the leisure port and the working port. Access to the promenade means you can... More
