This hotel offers excellent service; spacious, comfortable accommodations; beautiful gardens, swimming pools, and patios; an extensive, delicious breakfast buffet; and an amazing location across from the beach and a short walk to the historic old town of Marbella. We stayed for two days during a driving tour of Andalusia, enjoying every minute we spent at the hotel. Our "partial sea...

My husband and I returned last week after one of the most enjoyable 8 days break in the Hotel Fuerte Marbella. From the reception staff right through to the team in the restaurant, beach club and not forgetting housekeeping, their helpfulness, and friendliness was exceptional, even after a long day on duty. Nothing was too much trouble for them and...

Some friends recommended this hotel so we thought we would try it for a few days to celebrate our anniversary. We had a junior suite on the first floor which was very comfortable and had a good view out to sea although the trees in front were a little overpowering. A superior room at a higher level would be better....

Hotel and staff are excellent as usual. Lovely new event team who are very welcoming. What I loved - the comfort and atmosphere of the hotel and the friendly efficient staff. What my kids loved - sipping cocktails at the beach. What my grandkids loved - dancing the evening away in the bar.

For a late booking we wanted somewhere far south in Europe that wasn't too far for the kids and on the beach with a heated pool. So we chose this place based on those factors and it's far exceeded our expectations for a quick bucket and spade holiday for the kids. I'm fortunate enough to have stayed at a lot...
