Excellent hotel and facilities which appears to have had a recent refurbishment in many of the public areas. Appears to have very high staff / guest ratios for a 4 star hotel which leads to first class service. Great location on the beach and just 300 yards or so from Marbella Old Town. If you like swimming the indoor pool...

I stayed at Hotel Fuerte Marbella for 2 nights. Check in was quick and the staff were quite nice. This is a large and classic resort style hotel. It's located in a very nice location in Marbella across a small street from the beach. I had a fabulous direct ocean front room. Classically elegant with a nice balcony. I could...

Stayed a week here. There is no doubt that this is a hotel with class. It's a four star with some elements of a 5 star. They have redecorated the bar area very tastefully. Bedrooms are spacious and although there remain older items like the sinks, showers are powerful and there are ample bathroom guest accessories. Staff, all staff, are...

I had a nice visit at this hotel for 4 days. Has a great location by the beach and promenade, perfect for walking and looking for great restaurants close by. They have two pools, one is covered during winter season so nice to swim inside but bring a swimming cap. There is a small gym with a few cardio pieces...

We decided to take a trip and the weather in Marbella was to be good and it was fabulous. We arrived on Monday evening and greeted very warmly. We had a Classic room booked but upgraded to a Superior room which was on the sea side of the hotel. It had a marvellous view only metres from the sea, and...
