My family and I have just returned from the Fuerte Hotel in Marbella so visited during COVID. We were very impressed by how the staff looked after us and felt quite safe throughout. Also what was hugely impressive was how we were treated by every single member of staff reflecting the fact that this is a family run hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and we were always acknowledged by staff members regardless of seniority. The rooms were comfortable and well serviced with balconies that provided a great seaview even though billed as side seaview. The breakfast buffet was extensive and always fresh and appealing. Fabio runs a tight ship! We’re sorry to hear they must close for now but hope they can reopen for Christmas and stay open. I would not hesitate to return.
After 1,5 year we returned to this hotel. Staff was again very friendly and helpful. The last time we had a room with frontal seaview and the room was a bit better. Balcony from the room with lateral seaview are smaller, but it didn't bother us because we spent most of our time outside the hotel or in the garden of the hotel. Even in this difficult corona times we felt appreciated as guests. It still is a hotel with a beautiful first line sea location. We will surely visit it again !
Thank you Fuerte Marbella, you managed to again provide us with am excellent vacation, despite the different set-up now coping with C19 restrictions and safety precautions. We did like that it was not so crowded, but we especially like the always fantastic and warm welcome, support and excellent service., we felt that you have found a good balance between service and safety. Special thanks to senor Amores, who just provides that extra which makes a difference, looking forward to seeing you again, Sorry to hear that the renovation had to be postponed, but glad that we then can be back at Easter 2021.
In August 2019 I booked a family holiday for 5 adults with Hotel Fuerte Marbella. The Holiday was for 7 days and was to have commenced on the 27th May 2020. I paid €3,500 on booking. This was a non refundable rate. I want to complement the Hotel for refunding me promptly in the last week all monies from a booking effected by COVID - 19. They were good to deal with and I have no hesitation in recommending them as an excellent company to stay with. I look forward, sometime in the future, to staying with them in Marbella. Unfortunately other family members attending the same occasion in Spain, on similar dates who booked into other establishments, did not have the same good outcome.
We had a wonderful wedding arrangement at hotel Fuerte! Everything was just perfect! It was very professional service and staff during the wedding day and also during the planning period before our wedding. It was very tasty and high quality food and wines and a really nice table setting and decoration. And of course the view was stunning since the restaurant is on the beach and the ocean is very close so the sound of the waves is a nice background sound. The wedding ceremony was perfectly arranged on a terrace with beautiful sea view and a stunning flower arch. White chairs for the guests. After the ceremony we had a mingle at the terrace and a lot of good tapas and drinks served by professional staff. The staff paid attention to every guest and were very nice and professional. After the dinner we danced and played music in a big, beautiful banquet hall. They served nice drinks there as well. All of our guests were so pleased with the arrangement at hotel Fuerte and they thought everything was so perfect, beautiful and tasteful. We had a lot of contact with our wedding planner Catherine Linxen at hotel Fuerte, during the planning time before the wedding. She was always very kind, professional and helpful! She made reality of all our wishes for the wedding day. Everything Was just perfect and we had the wedding of our dreams!…
