Ok its our second time back to the Fuerte so I suppose that in itself speaks volumes.
Our negative experience on this occasion had nothing to do with the hotel.
This is a lovely hotel which we could highly recommend to anyone thinking of going to Marbella. Location is fantastic, the staff are lovely, and the entertainment in the hotel bar was really great every night.
We were unfortunate with the weather. It rained for most of the week we were there. But that happens, and its no ones fault.
Our negative experience was that my wife had her purse stolen in the Old Town one evening. Its so annoying with all the usual hassle that it entails, cancelling cards etc. I have to say that the reception staff could not have been nicer, helping with phone calls etc. But of course it sorta knocks the shine off what otherwise was an enjoyable week.
I think the hotel could be more active in warning guests about this danger. Just reminding people to be on their guard when relaxing in the Old Town.
