Probably about 7th visit to El Fuerte. We found it, initially, after consulting trip advisor and liked the look of the central location. Having stayed at three other hotels and a further three apartments in Marbella, this is the choice every time. The buffet breakfast, with show cooking, is always second to none and the staff are plentiful in number & very helpful too. We generally book B&B though the evening buffet is very good, again with show cooking.
The location can't be beaten for the beach, restaurants & the old town.
Plenty of room for sun beds either by the pool or in the garden unless you visit in high season, when there is a lot of "reserving" of spaces. Since our last visit, signs have been erected warning against this and pool attendants have been seen removing towels.
Price wise, the hotel is about what is expected during the different seasons, and is excellent as a base for both golfers and families.
The hotel has been around a while and as such, may look a bit old fashioned, but we love it.
Very highly recommended and well worth the extra for a front sea view room.
Location, food, service & value .......El Fuerte has it all!
If you're a trip advisor fan, as we are, then don't miss Paco Jimenez restaurant in Orange Square.
