I knew nothing about the Fuerte Marbella before arriving, as friends had booked this for me. I don't think there could be a better location to base yourself in the town - right on the beach and just 5 minutes stroll from the atmospheric old town and also the bustling marina. Breakfast service is excellent. We loved the fact there was an omlette and crepe chef and even a glass of Cava on hand for those who could manage it! Our room was in the new wing and although only had a side view, was perfectly comfortable, with a large modern well-equipped bathroom. However, as a party of 7 girls, we had ordered twin rooms beforehand, which actually ended up as doubles. We complained on arrival and were met with shrugs until we pressed for some free drinks to compensate! Another friend didn't like the lingering smell of smoke in her sea view room and got a free bar lunch. This is a large, busy hotel, which largely operated smoothly and efficiently. A wonderful place to stay.
