My wife and I stayed in the hotel at the end of September for nine nights after being recommended by friends . Everything about the hotel was fantastic. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and in particular I would like to thank Sandra Roman who organised the room that we asked for. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked on Friday a ten night stay for next September.
Thank Howard S

Stayed here once before and decided to go back for a return visit.
We weren't let down. There was initially some confusion with our room which the staff couldn't do enough to put right to the extant that we got a free bottle of Cava by way of an apology. The staff are always friendly polite and helpful. The food is excellent especially breakfast.
On the downside the pool isn't heated which can take your breath away when you first get in and at this time of year there is a more "mature" clientele.
All in all an excellent hotel which I intend to return to at some stage in the future..
Well worth a visit.
Thank GandMGlasgow

We have just returned from our second visit to Fuerte Marbella in 2018. It is one of our favourite hotels and is our principal reason for visiting Marbella during the past 10 years.From the minute we arrive we are always made so welcome. The team in Fuerte Marbella in all departments are always so pleasant and delighted to assist whenever possible. This positive attitude indicates a wonderful team spirit. The hotel is maintained to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean. The bar area has been upgraded in the last two years and is very comfortable and relaxing. Food in the restaurant is very good and caters for everybody . We look forward to returning again in January 2019.
Thank Dermot E

The staff in this hotel is really hilarious, so friendly and very nice to children. The hotel is clean and cosy. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic. The view and access to the beach is really great! The only negative point for us (we are a young couple with a child) is the average age of the other guests (over 60 and more). But the hotel itself is really nice

Having a wonderful time- views stunning and food amazing- but the staff are what makes it special- especially Yvonne and Cafelilo who are just brilliant - so close to the beach and old Marbella it’s the perfect place to escape winter and just relax in the sun
