Beautiful ambience by the sea!

Posted Feb 26, 2017
Pros: Actually, everything. It was such a comfortable place. We felt well-taken care of and that the staff genuinely cared about us. A big plus for us.
Cons: No suggestions
Location: Promenade along the sea is delightful. The city and Old Town behind the hotel are full of opportunities for good food, shopping and local history.
Hotel el Fuerte was a most pleasant surprise. We loved it! The hotel is beautifully appointed and so well taken care of. Staff was exceptional - so friendly and there to help with every need. Our room was most comfortable and well-equipped. Liked the huge foyers off each elevator so you never heard the elevator from your room..The sun loungers were very comfortable and pools are beautiful. Be sure you sign up for the buffet breakfast. A great way to start the day . With a lovely brick promenade full of restaurants and shops along the sea and the quaint town and "Old Town" behind the hotel there is plenty to do. We never left Marnella . Talked with people who had wonderful adventures outside the city, too. Next time we will stay longer. Thank you el Fuerte and staff. You are exceptional!

Excellent location to beach, shopping, restaurants

Posted Dec 6, 2016
Pros: The location, accommodation and staff.
Cons: Updating the en-suites.
Location: A taxi ride to Puerto Banus, also the close proximity to Marbella 'old town'. Mijas Pueblo, the all white village was just 30 mins away by taxi.
Hotel reception staff very helpful with advice and booking tours. The location was terrific, walking distance to 'the old town' where we found some excellent restaurants. The Gibraltar day trip was well worth the effort and the tour recommended by the hotel was exactly what we were after, tour of the rock, seeing the monkeys, cable car vistas and of course the shopping where prices were so much cheaper than UK and Spain. Breakfast was what you would expect with variety of food and drink and importantly very friendly staff. Free Wi-fi did not let us down.
