Reviewed February 17, 2013

We were recommended to stay in Conil rather than Cadiz for our overnight stop. We were visiting Gibralter and Cadiz from our base near Malaga. We chose this specific hotel from the Tripadvisor reviews. Apart from an initial difficulty in finding the hotel, all aspects of our stay were excellent. All staff were very friendly and welcoming. Just staying overnight, we did not sample much of what the hotel had to offer. It was only the following morning that we learnt that we had missed a gathering in the watchtower (with Cava) to watch the sunset! The hotel activity board seemed to offer something most days. If we return to this area then we will definitely stay here again but for longer. Very highly recommended!

My wife and me have stayed in this great hotel for 3 days as part of our Andalucia trip and really enjoyed it. High quality service, nice location (yet short walk to the beach and town), clean rooms, great pool area with outdoor jacuzzi, and highlight of our stay - fantastic breakfast. Totally worth its price!

We have stayed here a few times when we have been going to the motop in Jerez. It is a great hotel clean, good service, fantastic breakfasts with so much choice of hot and cold food also a chef who will make a fresh omlette for you. If you get a room on the east side away from the hotel he veiws are amazing. The location is great right on the beach and withing walking distance of conil and the restaurants. On one of our trips we stayed in the sister hotel next door which was just as good and there was a deal so we got the rooms for 50 euros a night.

It was easy to find a parking space in the street, so no need to use their parking. This was the last hotel on our Andalucia tour and also the most expensive one, so my expectations were very high. The hotel is in a beautiful location, next to the Fontanilla beach. The outside of the hotel met my expectations with lovely grounds, but I was a bit disappointed with the room. I was also expecting small details like other hotels of this category have, i.e. there is only a dispenser for the shampoo/body wash in the bath and a couple of soaps in the sink. The staff were very friendly. Free WiFi.

We stayed here for 6 nights in a Junior suite at the start of our Andalucian Trip and 4 days at the end in a 2 bed family room. 2 adults and 2 young children.
Its not cheap (we did go peak season) but definitely a solid 4 star hotel trying its hardest to become a 5 star (not too far off either). All staff were incredibly friendly and helpful at all times of the day or night, buffet food was good and offered a wide and varied selection each day. Hotel is maintained to a high standard. Everything was clean and tidy. 5 pools of varying sizes and depths (good for children). An evening show everynight for adults and kids alike, and wifi available (intermittent in some areas)
It is a large hotel and certainly the second stay was busier than the first but good location for beach and town (15 minutes walk with kids - hot in August). Beach is exceptionally good and 5 minutes from the hotel.
Overall it is a good choice for families, nice seaside town, brilliant beach, very few Brits venture here for no good reason, 1.5 hours max from Gibraltar.

We spent 4 nights at the Hotel Fuerte Conil-Costa Luz in late April 2012. Having read several negative comments about the hotel we did not expect too much (other hotels received even worse comments and this appeared to be the best of a mediocre bunch). We were, therefore, surprised to discover that All staff were very friendly and helpful and the accommodation certainly up to 4 star standard (the weather was poor during our visit and we spent longer than expected in our room). The breakfasts (included in the room rate) were excellent. We took the buffet dinner for 3 nights; the food was of a very high standard (meat and fish cooked to order) and, at the special offer rate of €15 represented excellent value. In April we had no difficulty parking in the side roads near the hotel and did not use the hotel’s secure parking facility. Highly recommended

We stayed three nights as part of our seven night honeymoon in Spain. The hotel itself is lovely, immaculate infact and a few hundred yards walk to the beach. However, we found the staff were not very welcoming, certainly by no means four star standard.
We did`nt recieve a very good welcome from the front desk thanks to a grumpy woman employee. When we said we were on our honeymoon she did'nt say a word, not even congratulations. We asked for our pillows to be changed on the first day as you can choose different types, the one`s we asked for never did arrive.
The staff that can supposedly talk 'British' struggle to string a conversation together. Be prepared for the hotel to be 99.9% of German tourists too.
You also have to walk 150 yards to the underground car park where you will be charged 5.50 Euros per day. It`s quite an awkward and long walk with lifts etc. Grab a space on the nearby streets if you can.
We found the only staff that were nice, friendly and helpful were the chambermaids and a couple of the waiters. The front desk staff were unaproachable and very wooden. Great hotel and surroundings, lovely beach but don`t go for the four star service because it is`nt

Room Tip: You may get a bit of noise if your room overlooks the bar and dinning area at night. Our`s overlooke...
