Rounded off a three centre stay with 3 nights at the Fuerte. As most reviewers have said, it's in an unbeatable position. Most of the hotels in that part of the resort are small business hotels and the more upmarket ones are a bit of a hike in the direction of Puerto Banus. The Fuerte has the best of both. Not only is it a very comfortable classic 4 star (with 5 star service), it is an exceptionally well run one.We were offered a complimentary drink in the bar while they prepared a room for us on the 4th floor.They offered a lower floor but said the better view would be worth the wait. It certainly was.
Marbella is a very smart resort but not in any way full of wanna- be celebs or self important business types. It's a lively and classy place that has something for everyone at all times of the year. Use the Fuerte as your base and you'll have a great holiday.
The restaurant looked good but we didn't try it as there are so many others to investigate all around. The buffet breakfast (including Spanish fizz if you want it) was excellent.
The Fuerte, as you'll see from the photos on display, was a pioneer hotel in Marbella. They have certainly set a standard to be measured up to.
