5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent a few days here in summer 2016. The room (junior suite on the first floor facing the ocean) was convenient but the real highlight of the trip was the service from the staff - right from the bell boy to check-in,bar, restaurants, house-keeping, pool staff - everyone was awesome ! They seemed genuinely motivated and friendly and went... More

A superb hotel. We had an exclusive room with sea view and balcony. Room was a good size with plenty of clothes storage. Bathroom only had a shower over the bath. Excellent buffet breakfast which could be eaten indoors or on the patio. Exclusive lounge very nice with complementary drinks and snacks. Plenty of sun beds in the garden, by... More

Came back only this week from this great hotel. Enjoyed the stay very much, the hotel was clean, the staff very attentive and the room had a beautiful View. Their private beach was very good as the 2 poolareas. But the highlight for us was the location. Right by the beach and the old city right behind us. Recommended.

Dont bother staying here if you want to actually have fun & enjoy your holiday. This hotel is only appropriate for over 60s who want to sit under a parasol all day in silence!!

Thank you very much for your stay. We are so sorry that your wedding planner gave you a wrong information. Fuerte Marbella is a hotel for families and couples. However is not a hotel for fun and drink parties, and is definately not a hotel for having a men fight and the bar and having to call the police. More

We have been staying at El Fuerte for many years and have recently returned home after another lovely 11 days. The staff are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. It's position in Marbella is just perfect. Would definitely recommend it for couples.

My husband and I have stayed at the El Fuerte several times and always enjoy our time here. Hotel is spotlessly clean and management and staff are friendly and helpful. We've seen many additions made especially in the last couple of years which have only enhanced our stay and love the new pool terrace. If I was to make one... More

Thank you very much for your stay. We are so sorry that your wedding planner gave you a wrong information. Fuerte Marbella is a family hotel, however not a hotel to have a group party of 75 guests. There are other hotels in the area which are orientated to fun and drinking parties and those would suit you better. More

Perfectly located in Marbella with direct access to the beach and across the road from the old town. Location can not be beaten really. Two swimming pools and plenty of sun loungers available. Hotel room was pleasant, clean and modern. Great selection of free toiletries like toothbrush, shaving kit etc. Very practical and handy for people on a short break.... More

Should most certainly state when booking that this hotel is not child friendly. I spent 3 days here with my 10 month old son, my cousins 14 month old little girl and we were told off for singing to the children playing in the pool. No balls allowed, no laughing or having a good time on holiday, dont dare try... More

They were there for a family wedding which was planned extremely well by my nephew and his future bride. It was all planned in conjunction with a wedding planner, who recommended this particular hotel. Although the... More
