beautiful hotel perfectly positioned

Posted Apr 13, 2017
Pros: position. facilities - 2 pools, bar and two restaurants. staff were very attentive.
the hotel and their staff were amazing. always attentive and eager to help with anything. the food, especially the breakfast buffet was amazing and more than worth the extra money. the position of the hotel was superb, just on the promenade and a short walk to the old town. a room with a sea view would be highly recommended, it was beautifully.

Very comfortable hotel in an ideal location

Posted Mar 28, 2017
Pros: Facilities, location and food were all excellent.
Location: As well as walking into the old town and along the sea front, it is easy to get buses to Puerto Banus, to Ojen and Coin inland, and to Malaga.
The hotel has very welcoming and friendly staff, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and a lovely sundeck and pool on a terrace overlooking the sea front. It is in a perfect location for both the old town with its pretty streets and the seaside promenade. There is very easy access nearby to a wide choice of restaurants and tapas bars.

Ultimate hotel experience

Posted Mar 13, 2017
This excellent hotel is located in the centre of Marbella opposite the old town and and access straight onto the beach and promenade . We were very impressed with the slick friendly service . The hotel is environmentally aware and has an emphasis on organic locally sourced food and grows its own veg and herbs onsite .The extra indoor heated pool in the gardens was a bonus in March . Room comfort was excellent with superior bed linen an a selection of pillow types available . We really could not fault anything ! They also promise to match any discounted price

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!
