  • PATRICK J JOSEPH H KEEGAN 02-12-2015 The gift of the bottle of champagne from house management together with the backpack for my birthday was a beautiful gesture. I look forward to returning again next year.
  • PETER MARIAN DONNELLY 02-10-2015 We booked the hotel for its position and because it was dog friendly.We did not find it very ''dog friendly'' as we were told when we arrived that we could take the dog onto the terrace only to be ''told off'' quite unpleasatly at a later date for sitting on the terrace with the dog.Apparantly it was a one off situation when we arrived as we were waiting for our room to be ready.We found this a bit embarrassing and actually couldn''t understand why a dog friendly hotel would not allow the dog in

  • PHILIP GARTH BOGLE 01-19-2015 Brilliant as always!
  • NICHOLAS OSMOND WADE 01-17-2015 Automatically hand out the Wifi when the guest books in, do not wait to be asked. Warn guests about the difficulties with parking underground. Ensure that guests are aware of parking restrictions when they arrive and during their booking. Provide pre-booking of parking(?). Ensure that when a guest with parking leaves staff are on hand for the gate. Provide information automatically during booking about alternative parking to facilitate the guest. Acknowledge each guest at reception so that they
  • STEEN MOGENSEN 01-13-2015 7:30 am is too late as opening time for morning restaurant. We stayed 4 nights (and should have had 4 breakfast). On three of the mornings, we either had to leave before 7:30 (i.e. we missed breakfast) or so soon after 7:30 so we could not really enjoy the breakfast (which is excellent).
  • PAULINE CAROL PYCROFT 01-12-2015 Excellent hotel. Our third visit and we will return soon
  • KIMBERLEY CATHERINE COUGHLAN 01-10-2015 Had a lovely relaxing holiday, thank you!

  • WILLIAM FRANCIS COSGRAVE 01-08-2015 We booked an EXCLUSIVE room package for a Christmas treat. On checking in we were NOT told about the private lounge that is available to people with the exclusive key card. For 4 days we did not know this, and we expressed our annoyance at Reception. I was told I would get a refund of ?128 and I''m still waiting. The Exclusive package is not worth ?2000 and the room was nothing special. We could hear people going to the toilet, coughing and talking in the adjoining room. We like the hotel a
  • STEIN ERIK ALVESTAD 01-07-2015 sehr gut, ich werde wiederkommen
  • MICHAEL COHEN (MIDDLETON) 01-06-2015 WE HAVE BEEN STAYING AT EL FUERTE MARBELLA FOR MORE THAN 12 YEARS, SOMETIMES 2 OR 3 TIMES EACH YEAR. THE NEW YEAR GALA DINNER WAS ALWAYS A VERY GOOD EVENT, BUT IT HAS NOW BEEN OVERPRICED DO THAT MOST GUESTS DO NOT TAKE PART. THIS YEAR THERE WAS NO ATMOSPHERE AT ALL ON NEW YEAR''S EVE, WHICH WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING. WE AGREE WITH MANY OTHER GUESTS WHO MADE THE SAME COMMENTS, AND DO NOT INTEND TO COME AGAIN FOR NEW YEAR.
  • ODD KRISTIAN HETLESAETHER 01-05-2015 Es war ein angenehmes Hotel und ich habe mich gut betreut gefühlt. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Zimmer war gut ausgestattet, das Bett bequem und es gibt keinerlei Mängel. Die Lage des Hotels ist fantastisch. Ich werde sicherlich wiederkommen.
  • DIANE ROGERS 01-05-2015 Staff were extremely helpful and courteous in all areas: bar, restaurant, reception, and housekeeping.
  • ROSEMARY PETERS 12-29-2014 We love,love, your hotel, your staff are fantastic,friendly and efficient. The beach bar restaurant position is second to none in the world and staff George'' and ( dancing) Francisco so courteous and attentive
  • ADELA HILDERSON (BRUSELAS) 12-22-2014 Thank you very much. I hope I can have the same nice room next year again.
  • AYSHA ARMSTRONG 12-21-2014 Loved the location. Bed and pillows were very comfortable.
  • STACEY RENEE TUCKWELL 11-30-2014 Parking seems expensive since staying at the hotel. I can see if I was not residing there it costing a lot, but as a guest of the hotel would think cheaper or discounted
  • IAN MICHAEL METCALFE 11-22-2014 I was very happy with my stay, but I am trying to book in June and there seems to be a disproportionate rise in the rate.
  • JENNIFER COSTELLO (Dublin) 11-13-2014 I have stayed in the hotel at least eight times because of its location. I think it has become far too expensive especially for one person staying there alone. It is also very difficult to get a booking in the hotel unless booked several months in advance.
  • BERNADINE EDNA TAYLOR 11-10-2014 We will return again and recommend to friends and family
  • JEREMIAH JOSEPH KILLEEN 11-08-2014 We very much enjoyed our visit.We found the hotel and staff to be first class.There was only one disappointment feature and that was the visitors welcome night with no signs etc.We noticed some visitors looking and giving up .
  • DAVID JAMES PATERSON 11-08-2014 One member of your bar staff are fundamentally rude , and left me with an unpleasnt experience on one day of my holiday , and i felt wary of returning to your bar .
  • FORSYTH TOM (KNOWLE SOLIHULL) 11-05-2014 It is nearly (20) years we have been staying a the EL Fuerte--always returning with pleasure. The only point of slight disappointment is that I have tried every year to confirm our room booking on the second or third floor --front sea view generally over the pool area. I wonder if you could put this request as a requirement on our Booking file
  • KATHLEEN O''HARA (lisburn) 11-05-2014 we had room 101 as my son needed the disabled room so I think holiday turned out very expensive because of that there should be more rooms with disabled facilities at a cheaper rate. maria or laura at reception very nice not sure of her name
  • MARGARET MURPHY 11-05-2014 Check in excellent. Two lovely ladies in reception. I would recommend this hotel for bed and breakfast only. Bar food better than restaurant for dinner. As marbella is a business town i really feel the check out should be adjusted to one o,clock for those who request it.. Not everyone would require this service and every time i ask i am told this is an international rule not so in other hotels in marbella or puerto banus. All other hotels have flexibility. I dont expect to stay all day b
  • IAN BREWER 11-05-2014 Great location & very nice hotel with excellent facilities
  • BRIAN TAYLOR (DURHAM) 11-04-2014 More English speaking channels on TV PLEASE
  • ELIZABETH CHERYL FOWLES 11-04-2014 We have stayed here a number of times and really enjoy our time at the hotel.The exclusive lounge was an added bonus.This was a fantastic addition.Bueno!!
  • JOHN ANDREW V KERSHAW 11-04-2014 The staff I met were friendly and helpfull, especially the Lounge Bar Staff with whom we had daily/nightly dealings.
  • NORMAN BUNYAN BUNYAN 11-04-2014 All staff at the hotel were polite and helpful.
  • CARQL ANNE MCFARLANE 11-03-2014 Everything was much to our liking apart from the fact that we had to pay 7 Euros per day for a lounger on the beach. Would have expected this to be free of charge to hotel guests. Other than that I could not find fault. The location of the hotel is perfect and the buffet breakfast is the best I have ever experienced.
  • GLENDA LAMDEN 11-03-2014 This was the first time I had the opportunity to stay on the 4th floor and experience the lounge facilities on the ground floor which I think were excellent. I have been a guest at the hotel for well over 20 years and I am glad you have maintained your standards. All the staff make sure that I really enjoy my holiday. I look forward to my next visit hopefully in 2015 Glenda Lamden
  • CLIFFORD ROY FENTON CALE 11-03-2014 Thank you for a wonderful stay. We had a wonderful time with our family. Your Hotel is exactly what we need and like - we felt a little uneasy with the restaurant not a lot of attention was given to the clearing of the tables. All staff were very pleasant and friendly
  • SHARON LEIGH HASTE (HORSHAM) 11-03-2014 Usually stay for a few days each year in October and always havw fabulous stay
  • JAMES PATRICK O CONNOR (WATERFORD) 11-03-2014 Our holiday was excellent. As usual the staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The garden is wonderful but we would like firmer chairs. The current ones are difficult to sit on if you have any kind of a back problem. The swimming pools were good.
  • BRIAN STEPHEN GARNER 11-03-2014 Excellent hotel - would definitely return
  • NEIL CAMPBELL MARSHALL (DENHAM) 11-03-2014 We particularly appreciated the executive lounge and thought it a considerable improvement (and more hygienic) on the open table previously available in the sixth floor corridor.
  • ELAINE MARY KIDD 11-03-2014 As usual we were very pleased and enjoyed our stay
  • DAVID JOHN RICKARDS 11-03-2014 Great location between Old Town & beach, excellent patio area & good breakfast
  • MARGARET ELIZABETH CREELEY 11-03-2014 I have been a guest to your hotel on my occasions. You should study the work rate of some of your staff in the dining room at breakfast time. The vast majority of your staff work very hard and are to be congratulated. There were queues of people waiting to get into breakfast due to the fact that some of the waiters would not clear their tables & would hide behind the pillars in the dining room. I watched as they were requested to clear tables & they ignored instructions given to them. Not a
  • IRIS ANNIE LEWIS VANCE (Northern Ireland) 11-03-2014 we use this hotel 3 or 4 times each year and are always looked after exceptionally well, the staff all over the hotel are very helpful and pleasant, nothing is a hassle to them, location is fantastic, we always get a room in the newer building (double standard classic) which is usually great but i felt the need this time that they need a little lift, think some are getting a little tired, although they are always clean and comfortable, also i am a member of premium club amigos and on arriva
  • ALBERT GEOFFREY ROBINSON ALTON 11-03-2014 We appreciated the new Executive Lounge
  • RYAN DE SILVA 11-03-2014 Overall the staff was excellent and it was clear they went out of their way to make sure we had a great honeymoon.
  • STEPHEN ANDREW THOMAS 11-03-2014 Very pleasant stay very professional staff would stay again
  • ROY HULTON SEDDON 11-01-2014 Vet nice and clean and well furnished hotel. Excellent holidy.
  • EILEEN CAROLINE E WATSON 10-31-2014 We should have stayed longer
  • CATHAL RYAN (WATERFORD) 10-30-2014 Queuing for Breakfast especially at weekend makes breakfast not a pleasant experience I would prefer no Buffet breakfast but a menu and to be served Actually one morning on our last stay we had breakfast outside the hotel and possibly would consider booking without breakfast at peak times
  • ALAN BRUCE CATTO 10-30-2014 As mentioned above we were very disappointed in the bar service compared to our many other visits
  • PHILIP ANDREW SMITH 10-28-2014 Bar a little slow, need more waiters in pool area as not allowed in bar without getting dressed.
  • NIGEL HARRISON 10-25-2014 The only complaint that I have and it''s a really small matter which I know the hotel will fix, is the maids not re-filling the in room coffe and milk on a daily basis.
  • ELIZABETH MC EVOY 10-25-2014 We always feel the sun beds are much too close together in the garden area. This area is also inclined to get a bit mucky after being watered down due to the fact that it is a soil area and not a tiled area.
  • BRIAN EDWARD LEE 10-18-2014 This was our second visit to the Fuerte Marbella and enjoyed both visits very much and hopefully looking forward to next year. All the staff are very friendly. Brian is coeliac and he was able to enjoy breakfast with fruit and toast... possibly you might be able to supply some gluten free cereal.
  • HENDRIK JAN FASMER 10-16-2014 our group of 8 men had a great stay and were well taken care of in all respects. Card playing in the bar area especially enjoyed super service, green felt on tables and side tables for drinks. Will be back!
  • BRIAN PARKER 10-16-2014 I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the hotel
  • CATRIONA ANN HUMPHREY 10-16-2014 We booked out stay directly with your office in February 2014. Previous to our arrival in September, I emailed the hotel to ask for a quiet room as I am a light sleeper. The room given to us on arrival was next to the lift shafts and overlooking the bar area. We complained to Reception but they said that as we arrived late in the evening, we could not change rooms. However when speaking to reception the next day they moved us to a room at the other end of the hotel which was a much nicer, qu
  • ROBERT LAUDER PEACOCK 10-16-2014 2 people from our group, despite pre-paying rooms had to stay in another hotel.
  • AMANDA SUE PYNE 10-16-2014 Disappointed to find we had missed a couple of activities (cocktail making and Spanish lesson) as we did not notice/see the board listing the activites. Perhaps a leaflet could be left in the rooms or the TV advert about the hotel could have a message telling people to look in reception to see what activites were available?
  • DAVID NEILL 10-16-2014 We have now stayed a total of 10 weeks in El Fuerte Marbella since May 2012 having previously gone to Cyprus Tennerife Benamadina, Grand Canaria,Majorca, (some of them several times) and lots of times in Florida,Phoenix, and New York. Fuerte Marbella is our favourite hotel.
  • DAVID HUGH MCNAMARA COFFEY 10-16-2014 Noisy disruption from a certain party
  • MARGARET KENT 09-06-2014 sunbeds were difficult to find as most guests had reserved them by placing towels on them especially in shaded areas. Need more monitoring of sunbeds by staff. Lunch menu very limited more choice of salads and sandwiches.
  • DENISE MARY HUDSON 09-03-2014 The Hotel overall was satisfactory, but we found the staff very indifferent to us. A smile of recognition would be nice.
  • PASCALE THEISEN 09-03-2014 "We enjoyed staying at your hotel and we had a very good time. The one and only little thing I had difficulties with was the hair dryer. It did not have sufficient power, the tube warmed up quite fast, and so I had to deal with a ""bad hair week"" ;-) But despite this little and unimportant detail everything was perfectly fine. Thank you!"
  • MYRIAM DELALIEUX 09-02-2014 Nous avons reçu tardivement tous les renseignements concernant le service exclusif et non compris que les cafés étaient payants dans la chambre
  • ROBERT JOHN HILLS 08-29-2014 Room view not as described or as advertised. Very disappointed. For that reason we will not be returning .
  • AMMAR SHAFEEK OMAR IBRAHI ELBALAWI 08-27-2014 Was a wonderful vacation, my wife and I enjoyed the stay, the hotel''s location is beautiful, the general behavior of the hotel staff wonderful and approachable, and I want to thank house keeper, who presented me a gift on my birth day ,,, this guide on stylish treated hotel staff and management as well.
  • STEVEN FIELDHOUSE (ABERDEEN) 08-25-2014 "We enjoyed our stay and will visit again. Just one point, prior to our visit we did use the ""contact us"" form on your website to enquire if you provided airport transfers and did not receive any response."
  • MARIA LUISA TEODORA VERPLAK 08-25-2014 He hablamos con otra personas que estaban en el hotel pero de verdad los españoles reciben mas atención que los extranjeros... especialidad en el restaurante a la playa se puede sentir. Hemos preguntado muchas veces para un abierto pero en mi caso solo yo me dan pan y los niños nada???? No puede ser...
  • ALAN JOHN MCILFATRICK 08-24-2014 Having booked a standard room, we were unhappy with our room allocation and we were quickly moved to a different room. All staff were courteous and helpful
  • CATHRYN DAVIES 08-22-2014 Ice machine would be useful had a lovely stay as usual
  • CARMEL H HELEN LAWRENCE 08-22-2014 We are returning to your hotel in January and have already booked. Thank you for a lovely stay, and please don''t take offence to the faults we found, just being honest to help your hotel improve.
  • ROGER MACDONALD 08-16-2014 We had not stayed with Fuerte Hotel before. We have stayed at Sheraton 5 Star Hotels and felt uncomfortable, we felt very comfortable at Fuerte, the staff were friendly and food/drinks/etc were all reasonably priced. The location was perfect and we will definitely return.
  • JILL VALERIE PAYNE 08-15-2014 I have just had another holiday with my daughter and 10 year old grandaughter at the fuerte marbella which we did enjoy the only thing lacking was more English children. On speaking to friends they have never seen any advertising in the U.K. Regarding the Fuerte perhaps this is an area you could explore.
  • LANCE ALLEN SILVER 08-11-2014 it would be nice to have bigger, nicer bars of soap in the rooms. Nespresso pods should be included for the length of your stay. If they are not included there should be a sign by the machine and also, that information should be made known at the time of your booking. Your breakfast buffet was very very good !
  • PAMELA MARY STENSON 08-11-2014 We have stayed in the el feurte Marbella for last 20 years and it was hard to believe that when my parents mr & mrs Patrick prior wanted to stay for 4 extra nights they were unable to and had to move to mirimar and the room they got in the mirimar was awful.
  • ISSA AGHABI 08-10-2014 Everything is amazing except taxi situation
  • DAVID DON ROBIN 08-08-2014 This was our second summer holiday at the Fuerte marbella hotel and we were very happy indeed with everything about our stay.
  • FRANCESCA SUZANNE ALEXAND HOLLADAY 08-08-2014 I was offered a price and then after I booked I was offered a cheaper price
  • LISA ANNE KEOGH 08-06-2014 love the hotel, a bit disappointed in the bed not being a kingsize and instead had two singles but otherwise perfect
  • PETER ELIOT ROSS 08-04-2014 Great hotel and we''d recommend it to others. Two slight disappointments at the very end when we were charged for water out of the minibar when we bought water along the beach and the maids must have thought we took it from the minibar. The front desk quickly adjusted that. A bigger disappointment was what we were given to take with us given we checked out our last day before breakfast was open. Given all that you have at the buffet, a ham and a one-slice smoked salmon sandwich were disappointin
  • JULIA ARIADNE MARBER 08-02-2014 Would have been better if I hadn''t been rudely told to vacate my room on day 2 of my 5 day stay. The staff member was most insistent and rude. However I was sent some fruit to apologise and all fine now.
  • GILLIAN SMITH 08-02-2014 We really enjoyed our stay the hotel is fabulous in a great location we are already thinking of booking next year
  • MATTHEW D DAVID EVERITT 08-02-2014 Loved yr hotel, yr staff are so warm and friendly and hotel very clean, we will be back!
  • PETER ALAN BAKER 07-29-2014 We had such a lovely holiday. Everything was just perfect. Thank you.
  • LINDA JANE TOLHURST REYNARD 07-28-2014 The only problem we had was my daughter trapping her fingers in the balcony door, we informed reception of our issues. We otherwise had a lovely stay with you and will definitely come back.
  • WENDY BROOKS 07-27-2014 Really enjoyed our stay accommodation and service was perfect, food really good especially breakfast ,
  • CLAIRE RUTH WRIGHT 07-23-2014 We love Hotel El Fuerte and we will be back next year I hope. Fantastic location, really friendly and helpful staff. Great facilities, especially the gym! Thanks for a wonderful stay as usual.
  • GARY GEOFFREY SMITH 07-22-2014 This is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. Fantastic location. We stayed in room 110, which had a beautiful view of the sea and garden area - a lovely spacious room. It was also nice that our children had ''proper'' beds to sleep on instead of ''sofa pull-out'' beds, which is what they normally get in other hotels. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. Our only criticism is that there should be a light on the balcony to sit out and enjoy the view in the evening.
  • BRIAN JOHN RUTHERFORD HENDERSON 07-21-2014 I have been coming to the EL Fuerte since 1998 and I feel it now needs modernising and upgrading in order to compete with other local 4 star hotels.
  • GERALD ANTHONY TERRY 07-19-2014 Had requested 2 single beds in room at booking stage but were given a room with a double bed. Enjoyed our stay at hotel. Gardens, pool areas and overall location of the hotel were excellent. Almost all staff very pleasant to deal with and very helpful.
  • CHRISTINE ANNE PRICE (HEME HEMPSTEAD) 07-19-2014 I visited with my sister and we shared a room. I requested twin beds when I booked, when we arrived at 1o''clock in the morning, the room we had been allocated had a double bed. Reception were good and moved us to another room.This not a complaint,but I thought I would mention it.I am sure the lady in bookings requested twin beds.
  • CHARLES BERGH 07-16-2014 We come back next year!!!!
  • KEVIN PATRICK TOBIN 07-14-2014 I would like to compliment Vanessa who served us drinks on the terrace, she is excellent.
  • LAURENCE ANTHONY KINGSWOOD 07-14-2014 "I was disappointed that the bar had run out of the superb ""Saint Vivant"" Armagnac, which had been my ""night cap"" every evening, on our last night!"
  • RAFAEL MARTIR GUEVARA 07-13-2014 Exelente hotel!!!
  • MARTIN ATKINSON ZAHM 07-12-2014 We''ve stayed at Fuerte Marbella many times but only on Bed and Breakfast. This time we had several evening meals in the restaurant and loved the whole experience so much that we may book media pension next time!
  • STEFAN ZYGMUNT LANGNER (MARPLE BRIDGE) 07-09-2014 Excellent stay as always. Now made even better by the Hotel''s new policy on not being able to reserve sunbeds by the pool. A brave decision but one that should be kept in place.
  • THOMAS WILLIAM BARRETT 07-08-2014 Had dinner in the restaurant on Sunday and visited as they opened at 7.30 but a lot of the food was already cold so would advise perhaps you look at this.
  • JAMES MCCOSH BARBOUR 07-08-2014 Have been to this hotel for the last 10 years. We will be returning next year!!!
  • STEVEN ROBERT UPWARD 07-07-2014 we loved it, the hotel is lovely
  • AINE GIBBONS 07-03-2014 As. I had only booked for 2 nites on mon & tue with my friends I had tried to get a reasonable price to stay on till sun 6 th while I was there. My husband was goin to join me for the xtra 4 days ( from Wed till Sun 6 ) but the price was outrageous at almost ?800 there was no negotiation an I was very disappointed to firstly not stay on for the rest of the week an that my husband was goin to travel for the 4 days & ...secondly that ur sales team were unwilling to be a bit more reasonable especia
  • LESLEY ANN SMITA 07-03-2014 "The executive lounge was a fabulous idea but there was nowhere to put dirty dishes and quite often items such as tea bags were not re stocked. Also it would be nice to have an executive part at the pool bar as we felt slightly ostracized being in a ""glass box"" inside the lobby where other guests were eating on the patio overlooking the pool. "
  • CHRISTINA NICOLA AUST 07-01-2014 The hotel was amazing and the staff so helpful. This is my second trip bringing back other family members. One of our party is booking to come back next month and I will be booking to come back next year with another party. Excellent is how I would describe the hotel. Thank you very much
  • HANNAH ELIZABETH EMBERTON 06-30-2014 Food. Not very good
  • DAVID FRANK KURLEY 06-30-2014 As usual, staff members were friendly and efficient. The stay was as enjoyable as ever, thanks.
  • LUC ROGER DELEU 06-30-2014 i regret that you can''t choice anymore between cold and warm buffetat diner
  • DEIRDRE MCGOWAN (CORK C.) 06-29-2014 "As always my daughter and I enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the El Fuerte. At this stage I can truly say that it is a ""home from home"". That is my main reason for having visited every over the past 11 years or so. I also look forward to our next stay with you. Regards, Deirdre McGowan."
  • JAMES WHISTON 06-29-2014 VERY ENJOYABLE STAY
  • JOHN DAVID MCGOWAN (ST. ANDREWS (SCOTLAND)) 06-28-2014 We did not get the room we requested as a result of the changes the use of the third floors upwards are now put to. The was quite annoying but the room we had was ok
  • DIANA PATRICIA MITCHELL (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) 06-28-2014 Had a wonderful stay, the hotel staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble.
  • ROBERT CHARLES DAVIS 06-28-2014 Sun Loungers are not very comfortable !!!!
  • KAREN MC ARTHUR 06-27-2014 loved the location and the beach view. Felt a little mislead by the pictures on line of spa and work out facility that isn''t on the premises. WiFi is terrible! Beds were disappointing. Twins slid together to make a king are not a king. I had to use my belt to keep the beds together, and still slipped through a few times.
  • JACYNTHE LEVAC 06-26-2014 For our first time in the Costa Del Sol and our first time at a Fuerte hotel and our first time in marbella we tremendously appreciated everything in marbella. Great people excellent accomodation fabulous weather what is there not to like. Hope to be back soon and thank for your hospitailty.
  • THOMAS MICHAEL DODSLEY 06-25-2014 Have stayed on a number of occasions and everything has been fine.
  • ELIZABETH ANN LAMB 06-24-2014 This was my 5th stay at El Fuerte Marbella, I always find it a lovely experience, the hotel is so well run, everything just seems to happen by magic! ~The hotel is immaculate, but you never see anyone cleaning it! I cannot fault this hotel, I will be back as soon as I can!
  • JULIE MARGARET HUMES 06-24-2014 Really enjoyed our stay. We were on the 6th floor and whilst we had no complaints about the room/service etc it was a bit of an inconvenience not having the lift go all the way up to floor 6. Apart from that could not fault anything else. Staff were all great and very helpful.
  • COLIN GARY COOK (LAVERSTOCK, SALISBURY, WILTS) 06-23-2014 the staff are very friendly and helpful and are a credit to your hotel
  • ROBERT MACMILLAN 06-23-2014 Excellent facilities, well run and friendly. Very helpful and professional staff.
  • PHILIP JOHN BRISCOE 06-19-2014 I was hoping to return for another four nights this weekend, but all too busy, so I have missed the opportunity of coming back.
  • RICHARD MIDDLEMASS BISSLAND 06-19-2014 Excellent staff. Very clean with good food. Congratulations on a well run hotel. r
  • BONE GRAHAM MICHAEL 06-19-2014 brilliant - we will visit again
  • BRIAN WILLIAM WALSH (LISBURN) 06-18-2014 room not made up until 16 30 room no 418
  • PATRICIA ANN GREGAN 06-18-2014 "We booked an Exclusive Junior Suite for 4 Adults (REF LOC119799). We were disappointed with the room (103) which was basically a standard double room with two single beds tucked away in the corner of the room. It did not feel like an ""Exclusive Junior Suite"" to us. Also, we were charged ?12.00 per day for the parking of our rental car which we did not anticipate when paying the bill."
  • ESTHER PATRICIA BERNARDA WIJNANDS 06-15-2014 "A couple of years ago I told you that it seemed to me that your employers didn''t like their jobs very much. That has completely changed. Now I see employers that are optimistic, they smile and they say ""hello"". It''s good to see, and it makes my staying with you even better."
  • ANNE LONGWORTH 06-14-2014 Lovely hotel in a superb position. We really enjoyed our stay & would use this hotel again.
  • KATHLEEN OBRIEN 06-14-2014 The reception staff were very helpful and obliging when myself and my wife looked for a better room upon arrival, excellent service and friendly staff
  • STEPHEN JAMES OHERLIHY 06-11-2014 Very poor air conditioning, would not consider staying in hotel again due to air conditioning policy of 24 degrees during the summer. In my country we consider 24 degrees heating not cooling! Very disappointing bar service by pool, no service to the sun beds and had to wait for bar man to come to bar when wanting to order drinks.
  • NATALIE LOUISE DOLMAN 06-09-2014 overall very pleased
  • HARVEY ROLAND HAMMER II 06-08-2014 "The hotel does not quite match the photos. Our room (101) was disappointing. It was large, but the flooring was cheap, uneven and peeling in places. We opted for a full front sea view, and the view was partially obstructed. We were prepared to leave an unfavorable review; however, our meeting with the lovely and gracious manager Maria turned our impression around in an instant. Although the room was a disappointment, the public spaces, facilities and grounds are magnificent."
  • JAMES PATRICK O CONNOR (WATERFORD) 06-07-2014 Once again we enjoyed our stay in your hotel, where we have been going, every year, for the past twelve years. The staff are very friendly and efficient and seem to be happy in their work. This helps visitors enjoy their stay.
  • BRIAN EKERS 06-06-2014 Second visit to the Hotel. Very satisfied, as before
  • NIAMH RUSSELL 06-06-2014 We really appreciated the little treats such as the gifts for my husband''s birthday. The room was great bur we will need more space if we return with our sons again. Please let us know of any special offers. The only slight problem was the lift was very noisy and we could hear it from our room through the night. The staff were really lovely and pleasant.
  • MARTIN JOSEPH KAVANAGH 06-05-2014 We have already recommended the hotel to friends and intend to return ourselves.
  • LUCY ONEILL MURPHY 06-03-2014 The childrens play area at the Fuerte Marbella could do with some work. Also the fact that the side entrance gate to the hotel opens into the play area is not good, this gate is often left open. A little more thought needs to go into facilities for children.
  • LAURA MICHELLE KAPLAN 06-03-2014 "I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Jose (I think that is his name) who was so understanding and helpful to me at the reception desk. He helped me handle a difficult situation which was successful! and also upgraded me to a beautiful ocean front view on the fifth floor which I loved. I spent much of my time out on the balcony night and day as well as observed the powerful thunderstorm and lightening that struck the area. The other times I spent many hours walking the promenade fo
  • PETER ALAN MOTH 06-02-2014 Unfortunately we were not able to have the suite that we booked due to overbooking. This meant that we had to change rooms half way through our stay and caused us a lot of stress when booking in. The reception manager was very helpful but we were very upset especially as we booked 3 suites in January this year, and asked for them to be next to each other. This was not possible on the day which was very upsetting for us as this was a family celebration
  • HAGUE WILLIAM RONALD 05-28-2014 "room now needs updating; wooden floor lifting ; lunchtime service not enough staff stayed with you many times still enjoy our vacation willbe back again this year "
  • ALISON YVETTE JOAN DICKINSON 05-27-2014 I was presented with cava and cake on my birthday. Thank you it really was very kind.
  • FRANCIS MCGRATH 05-26-2014 This is our third visit and the hotel is comfortable and ideally placed for all the areas facilities, mostly within walking distance.
  • CATHY CARROLL 05-26-2014 Everything was very - nice just one problem - not enough soap and toiletries. No shampoo just Shower Gel in a dispenser. We did not travel with any toiletries. There were 3 of us in the room but only 2 towels were left. We got third towels when we asked. The Breakfast was fantastic. Jose on Reception was superb.
  • GILLIAN FITZSIMONS 05-25-2014 We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The general experience was very positive. The food, entertainment and cleanness of hotel was exceptional. The one area that we felt let the hotel down was the attitude of some of the staff, mainly the restaurant staff at breakfast time, the lunchtime staff in the beach bar and some of the bar staff. The service was slow and not helpful.
  • WILLIAM G GEORGE ROSS 05-25-2014 The hotel facilities and staff were as good as expected, which was great. The hotel location and the general ambiance of the place could not be better. We have stayed at the hotel several times and always enjoyed it. We look forward to our next visit.
  • COLIN HARRIS 05-25-2014 We used this hotel 6 years running for a 4night break, then missed 2 years and returned again this year. Only 2 complaints, breakfast egg counter not as good as previous stays (pre-cooked eggs cold and chef not always on hand to cook fresh) and on final night we were not left any bath towels.....notified reception who rang through to housekeeping, but still never received any!
  • HEIDEMARIE FRANCES HOWARD (DUNSTABLE - BEDS) 05-25-2014 The maid service was below what was expected especially for the Exclusive service. After our first night there was no evening turn down service for the three days. Also empty shampoo bottles were not removed On one day the room was not serviced until after lunch. The impression was that there were not enough maids working. My robe also was split but this was readily rectified by reception.
  • JOHN FINBARR O´CONNOR 05-25-2014 At breakfast waiting staff could be more helpful, attentive. Overall very good, however.
  • DAVID EDWARD HUNT 05-23-2014 Stayed two times before. Our room was disappointing compared to previous visits. bathroom smaller, generally looked much older.
  • AIDEEN CARMEL D´ARCY (BELFAST) 05-22-2014 Was offered the basic level of Amigo membership - useless. Premium free bar in room for 1st night of stay. This was 2 cokes, 2 beers and 2 bottles of water! They remained unused as I consider this to be an insult.
  • ELIZABETH ANNE MAYER 05-22-2014 I was very disappointed to find that a hat that I have left at the hotel last year, which you were keeping for me to collect on my return this year could not be found, despite me telling you which room I had stayed in and the date I was with you.
  • PAUL TREADWELL 05-22-2014 All staff were good except for the bar staff especially around 4pm when we twice wanted a drink but had to wait at least 20 minutes before we were served. Twice we left and went for a drink down the beach. On the plus side the reception team especially Sandra were very good as were the kitchen staff
  • CATHERINE DOREEN BALL 05-22-2014 The iron which was sent to our room had a flex which was frayed and the wires were exposed and showing through. The wires had become slightly twisted, through people wrapping around the iron probably. This is highly dangerous and the iron needs to be taken out of service staright away. My room mate used the iron.
  • LYNN PATCH 05-21-2014 Only problem was room quite small with very limited storage
  • JOANNE MURPHY 05-21-2014 We stayed last year in your hotel too after many years in Benalmadena Torrequebrada Hotel. We decided to change as we felt after 10 years we would perhaps have a better welcome. Your team called when we were planning where to go and we decided to return. Very glad we did I think it will be our choice in the furure. Your reception staff are excellent particularly the lady who checked us in - sorry didnt take her name.
  • ERIC KENNETH WATSON 05-21-2014 Excellent hotel. Everything I expected and more.
  • JILL HENDERSON 05-20-2014 We have now stayed with yourselves on 5 occassions and each time has been great, were a little disappointed that many guests seem to have been upgraded and received access to your lounge but this has never been offered to ourselves.
  • KAREN MARY DEVINE 05-18-2014 Hotel was gorgeous top class the only problem u felt it wasn''t very well catered for English people, other than that we loved it.
  • STEVEN GLYNN 05-17-2014 Convenient location and peaceful hotel. The lounge was an helpful addition to our stay.
  • IAN DOCKER 05-16-2014 We have enjoyed staying at the hotel for many years. It is nice to see that the staff seem to enjoy working here, and always have a friendly smile !!! Also have brought friends with us who felt the same.We can see that work is been continually done to keep the hotel up to its standard.We will be looking forward to our next visit to you,were we celebrate my husbands birthday.Also impressed that the director is always on hand.This is one of our favourite hotels in Spain.
  • ODDBJOERN ROVERUDSETER (KONGSVINGER) 05-15-2014 We have visited Your hotel,Fuerte Marbella, almost every year in April/May since 1997, and Our expectations have always come to great satisfaction.We always recommend Your hotel to Our friends in Norway,when visiting Marbella.
  • CLIVE GIO BATTA 05-13-2014 We had a most enjoyable stay as we always experience with you. Made to feel welcome.
  • JULIA GERRARD 05-11-2014 Excellent standard of service from all staff in every area of the hotel. Fantastic location. Lovely calm and peaceful restaurant. All areas spotlessly clean and staff very friendy, helpul and obliging. The only area that I feel needs updating is the bar seating area. It is very dark, cold and unwelcoming. It is an area that I feel more people would use throughout the day if it was given the same attention that has been given to the restaurant.
  • RAVALD DIANE MARIE 05-11-2014 I think toiletries should be provided and the hairdryers need updating
  • KEVIN MICHAEL FRAYNE 05-10-2014 NO INFO GIVEN WHEN WE ARRIVED ABOUT ANYTHING
  • JOHN ROGER HARRISON JONES 05-08-2014 Valerie and I have stayed with you many times,always enjoy it.
  • LEO HALPENNY 05-07-2014 Some personnel around the pool area as an elderly German woman decide to take our towels and beds while we were having lunch at the beech resturant. She just dumped our books and personal belongings on the ground. She claimed she had been sitting there with her husband all morning......a very crazy woman.
  • NICOLAESCU TIBERIU 05-07-2014 The parking should be free
  • LOUISE DEIGNAN 05-07-2014 We have returned to your hotel year after year for its great location and comfortable surroundings . Sadly as I have stated we are reconsidering our return visit to your particular hotel for it''s growing lack of customer care and appreciation.
  • MARY JANE REDMOND 05-06-2014 We booked this Holiday as a Special Offer Deal with room upgrade from El Fuerte Hotels and was somewhat disappointed with the room (229) allocated to us due to its room & bathroom facilities size. We would have preferred to have a room some what like we booked in Nov 2013 even if we had to pay more? But that being said we enjoyed our Holiday and hope to return to Marbella later in the year??
  • DEAN KENNETH PATRICK 05-06-2014 We wanted to have a short restive period after being very busy beforehand
  • SHONA WINNINGTON 05-05-2014 Excellent hotel over-all and we will definitely return
  • DAVID JEFFERIES (SWANSEA) 05-04-2014 Im Prinzip o.k. ABER Die Klimaanlage hat nicht gekühlt. Nach Aussage der Rezeption ist die Kühlfunktion zu dieser Jahreszeit nicht eingeschaltet (um Geld zu sparen). Das angemietete Zimmer (1128) jedoch heizt sich sehr auf (trotz ständig geschlossener Vorhänge) und ist deutlich zu warm um den Aufenthalt zu genieÃ?en. Daher ist das Hotel zwar eigentlich o.k. aber in einem überhitzten Zimmer lässt es sich weder gut wohnen noch behaglich und erholsam schlafen. SEHR SCHLECHT !
  • DAVID JEFFERIES (SWANSEA) 05-04-2014 The lunchtime menu was good,but the service level was poor.The location of the hotel is ideal for visits to the old town,which is why we keep returning to you every year.
  • FINOLA MARGARET PENNY 05-04-2014 Very friendly and efficient staff on reception, dining room and housekeeping. I felt very welcome and that my business was appreciated by all staff. Amazing!
  • MARK MATHEWS (CO. DUBLIN) 05-04-2014 I have been to hotel El Fuerte many times over the Years . I have always enjoyed staying there, and I have also recommended the hotel to Family and friends who have taken up on the recommendation and also really enjoyed their stay also thank you.
  • PATRICIA MARY O FARRELL (BLACKROCK - DUBLIN) 05-02-2014 We recommend el Fuerte to many people and so many of our irish friends have stayed with you as a result
  • DIANA JENNIFER COPE 04-30-2014 We very much enjoyed our stay with you in Marbella and look forward to our next visit.
  • JEROME OLIVER PONISI 04-28-2014 We had a most enjoyable stay in your hotel and look forward to a return trip. All staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient. We would also consider visiting one of your other locations
  • LOUDON ALASDAIR JOHN 04-28-2014 "We paid for an Exclusive room largely because of the ""Clubroom"" and the private facilities which it was to provide. It was massively disappointing. It was like a goldfish bowl with all the other guests looking in. The wines were poor quality house wines and the food was dull and stale. There should have been a choice of qualirty wines and a fridge full of cold beer but nothing like that. We stayed in the ME Hotel in Barcelona 2 years ago and had a fantastic Clubroom and were expecting similar
  • BRENDA BRIGITTE SNIJTSHEUVEL 04-27-2014 Fijne kamer gehad nr. 118 bij een volgende boeking zou ik deze kamer ook wel weer willen. Komen waarschijnlijk in augustus weer terug.
  • JOHN PATRICK HUGHES (DUBLIN) 04-24-2014 "My wife and I have been to El Fuerte many times ( and also now book in our friends and other groups ) and each time we go there it is a very special occasion for us because of the "" continued "" high standard of ALL aspects of the hotel...reception service and attitude/dining room service/attitude....breakfast quality/standard of rooms and cleanness of them...especially front seaview/the pool area/reservation department is excellent...most helpful ( unusual for an hotel ) !! I could give many
  • BRIAN ROBERT GARVEY 04-24-2014 Great hotel very enjoyable stay with excellent staff
  • JANET GAULD 04-22-2014 We had a really enjoyable 3 nights with you. Everything was of a really high standard and the only thing that let you down was the service during the day in the hotel coffee bar area. It was a rainy day and so it was busy but there were lots of complaints and I had to go to the bar to order my own coffee and carry it over to the seating area.the staff didnt appear to put in the extra effort or recognise the problem.
  • ROBERT MATHIAS 04-22-2014 great hotel, nice location on the beach, has nice facilities, unfortunately we were there in March when the beach was cold. Hope to return again in the future.
  • LISE FREDHOEI HASNER 04-20-2014 We had to ceep the terrasse closed during the nights. The air condition was not working, and we felt we could not breath during the nights. Therefore the sleeping was very bad.
  • SAMANTHA DUNDON 04-19-2014 We cannot wait to visit again! Your staff are so warm and helpful and always make us feel very welcome. We have been visiting you for nearly 5 years now (as often as ewe can!) and hope to visit for many more. A fantastic holiday.
  • GORDON NIGEL FAREBROTHER 04-18-2014 We had a superb time and the Hotel and Staff made our stay amazing!
  • NICHOLAS JOHN J DUNNE 04-16-2014 This was our second Visit to Furte Marbella and we would like to compliment you and your Team on exceptional service throughout the Hotel. Can''t wait to return!
  • SHEILA O MAHONY 04-16-2014 AS IT WAS MY 6OTH BIRTHDAY TREAT AND MY BROTHER AND WIFE CAME ALSO INDEED THEY STAYED FOR THE WEEK . I JUST FELT THAT SOMEONE COULD HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED MY BIG BIRTHDAY!!!
  • THOMAS ORIORDAN 04-15-2014 Piano playing in the bar after dinner is gone,we used to enjoy this. A lot of cutbacks, no entertainment, flamingo, not up to standard. The chef Vinos in the restaurant is very good but very overworked, he often has to cook for large numbers without help. Overall, disappointing.
  • MICHAEL FRANKLYN FANYA 04-15-2014 Very friendly and welcoming and extremely helpful at all time.
  • KEVIN GRAHAM 04-14-2014 anotrher fantastic stay, we love the hotel and have been several times, please just watch the levels of staff serving of drinks as it can be slow at times.
  • GEORGE HARVEY BRUNKER 04-13-2014 We were very pleases to return to the Fuerte Marbella and loved the balance between good service and friendliness.
  • JANET ADAM MCPHERSON GOULD 04-13-2014 The hotel was lovely. We had a young baby with us so were not able to make full use of all the many facilities. The location is superb and I would thoroughly recommend it to friends.
  • WILLIAM AFIIII ANTHONY FAHY 04-12-2014 We very much enjoyed our stay and will return in the future. A special thank you to Criostobal,in restaurant, for his excellent service and good humour during our visit.
  • FRANCES ANN NEWMAN 04-12-2014 Everything was perfect, except that the air conditioning wasn''t on and I was very hot every night. I was told it''s not turned on until later in the season.
  • ROGER JAMES HILLIER 04-10-2014 We were disappointed that the only English Language TV channels were news or business orientated. I should estimate that the proportion of English to German guests at the hotel during our stay was at least 2:1 yet there must have been at least 8 German language TV channels. Surely providing 2 or 3 BBC or ITV entertainment channels is not too much to ask!
  • RAO NAVEEN 04-09-2014 Excellent hotel with convenient location and fabulous facilities. The hotel was one of the highlights of our fantastic holiday.
  • EDITH HONORINE LAURENT (SIRAULT) 04-09-2014 This was the sixth time we stayed in the hotel, so...
  • ELIZABETH ELAINE FERGUSON 04-08-2014 Really enjoyed my stay as usual
  • PAUL VERNON ELLIOTT 04-08-2014 Very good. I left a very good review on Trip Advisor.
  • OONAGH ODRISCOLL 04-07-2014 Breakfast couldn''t be better but dinner having no potatoes, either boiled, baked or mashed was not catering for Irish people, spoke with some guests and they weren''t happy with frozen chips and wedges either, not something we have at home. Vegetables were tasteless and I''ve been to your hotel twice and that didn''t change.! . Desserts are desperate to say the least, your ice cream is the highlight,if one likes it, and im not a fan but overall you do your best to cater for everyone. We didn''t
  • DEBORAH JANE MYERS 04-07-2014 There is a good reason we have been going to Hotel El Fuerte for over 20 years and that''s because it''s excellent! It''s ideally situated on the promenade and 5 minutes walk from the old town. Most of the staff have been there for years, they are always efficient and helpful and it is really lovely to be welcomed back by a familiar face - I am already planning our next trip!
  • SYLVIA AVRIL APPLEYARD (OLD WINDSOR) 04-07-2014 This was our second stay and we had a lovely time. Very relaxing, lovely gardens, loungers, pool area, great breakfast and a fantastic team. The free wifi is very important to us and very welcome. Upgrade charges and late check out charges a little steep. Would prefer to spend more on a poolside food and drink service. Definitely plan to come back.
  • JAMES WILSON (NORTHUMBERLAND) 04-07-2014 WE USED THE BEACH RESTAURANT A COUPLE OF TIMES AND ENJOYED IT BUT THOUGHT THE MENU COULD BE A LITTLE WIDER IN TERMS OF CHOICE.
  • PATRICK LEONARD FAY 04-07-2014 Loved every minute of our stay. Our little baby had a great time too. Would highly recommend this hotel we will be back. Its proximity to everything. It''s very safe and great security. Would be very suitable for both couples and families. Love it. Thank you again x
  • ANTHONY GLYN CLAYTON 04-06-2014 The Hotel was a good as I thought it would be from previous comments. We would definitely return to Fuerte next time we visit Marbella. We were unlucky with the weather (29/3 to 5/4) and will come a bit later next time. Overall a very enjoyable holiday.
  • JOHN BENEDICT MARTIN 04-05-2014 Just back from a very enjoyable holiday in Le Feurte Hotel. Great hotel, great location. Staff very helpful. Food excellent. Hope to go back again.
  • JOHN AYLWARD 04-04-2014 We very much enjoyed our stay which was our first. Please contact us with any special prices you may have in the future.
  • FRED IAN GANSKY 04-03-2014 I was visiting a friend in the area so I couldn''t pick a warmer month. The enclosed pool outside was great for me. Swam one hour twice during my six days. The gym was first rate, far better than available to me at other hotel chains. The morning buffet was extraordinary, and keeping it open until 11:00 AM was thoughtful. All of the help from chambermaids to front desk were exceptionally professional, polite and helpful. And, the location was ideal for me to spend some time alone walking the Old
  • LAURENCE JOSEPH TUOMEY 04-03-2014 Very pleasant stay. Staff in all departments very pleasant and efficient.
  • CHRISTINE HELEN THORNTON 03-31-2014 willing, friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant was superb, standard very high. look forward to coming again.
  • MELANIE JANE PRICE 03-31-2014 Hotel staff go out of there way to make you feel welcome, in reception, restaurant and bar area. Excellent.
  • JANE KATHERINE BRYSON 03-31-2014 Please could you have proper size pillows.
  • CLARE GERALDINE CLARKE 03-27-2014 My first time in Marbella and I thought your hotel was just fantastic in every way, I will be back without a doubt. Please email me of any special deals/offers which may come up.
  • DAVID SWARBRICK 03-26-2014 Very reasonably priced, definitely use again if in Marbella
  • NABIL ABDULLAH D FELEMBAN 03-26-2014 We loved everything.Just one thing dishes and glasses at the restaurant are not cleand as it should be
  • ARMAN BASMAJIAN 03-25-2014 Start to finish was a very good experience.. with friendly staff.. & superb location. Thank you.
  • JOANNE BARBARA SMITH 03-24-2014 No English TV Programmes, only the News.
  • ANN FRAYNE 03-24-2014 "Our first room was a side sea view which we had requested but the bed was in a small narrow corner of the room and was a very restless nite we felt we were sleeping in the broom closet. We then upgraded to the exclusive club which was an extra ?55 per room per nite. However we felt this price was overly expensive for what was on offer, really only a morning snack & afternoon tea!! We will return to your hotel but will have the fore site to book a frontal sea view the next time minus the execut
  • PER ERIK FJELDSTAD 03-23-2014 Nice breakfast, and very good beds. Missed slippers and bathrobes at the bathroom.
  • MONIKA ANNA LUDWICZAK 03-23-2014 We were offered to pay 55 Euros daily extra for access to a lounge, and use of exclusive floor. Lounge was very poorly stocked, with the same soggy food in the morning and evening. The final bill was 300 Euros over what we were meant to pay, the mistake was eventually amended, however no apologies received.
  • MICHAEL JOSEPH FARRELL 03-22-2014 We upgraded to executive room. Room was great. But felt value for money at 55 euro a night was poor. Didn''t really use executive lounge felt uncomfortable in it. Too many windows into room no privacy. Felt staff were unsure if we should have been there gave us very uncomfortable looks. Asking my brother in law to prove he should have been there getting him to use the key card at door! This should not be the case. However we will be returning next year to your hotel Thank you. Housekeeper Lol
  • MARK VINCENT DI GEMMA 03-22-2014 I have stayed at both of your Marbella Hotels, the El Fuerte Marbella (most recent) and Miramar and overall have been satisfied with the service provided over the years. Front desk staff in particular are generally courteous, helpful and friendly. My only comment relates to the choices of English language TV channels. In my recent stay at Fuerte Marbella the only English channels were news channels. Last year I stayed in the Miramar and there was a wider selection of English language channel
  • AART VAN LEEUWERDEN 03-22-2014 x.
  • TJIPKE ARJEN KOOPMANS 03-18-2014 The comfortable chairs in the double room could be a little more comfortable.
  • JEAN ROBSON 03-18-2014 This is the fourth time we have stayed with you and the main reason we keep coming back is that on our first visit we meet Monica Moya Lopez she was so helpful and promoted your company so well we have been fans ever since. We have recommended your hotel to all of our friends some have been.
  • STEPHEN RICHARD BRITT 03-18-2014 Having to walk through the hotel bar area to access the indoor swimming pool. Having to walk back to reception to purchase a swimming cap!! There was no information about using the facilities.
  • WILLIAM LEONARD SPARKS (TUNBRIDGE WELLS) 03-16-2014 Our stay was up to your usual very high standard. If I was looking for a criticism it would have to be that our lovely room was not cleaned until late afternoon on most days.
  • KATHLEEN MARGARET ANITA GUILFOYLE 03-16-2014 Excellent from star to finish. Looking forward to a return trip later in 2014.
  • MARGARET MARY LEONNE FORDE 03-15-2014 I think standards have gone down a little from our previous stays with you.We arrived on Sunday and had a glass of cava on arrival which was a nice touch.We enjoyed this outside by the pool and after finishing breakfast on Monday we noticed the empty glasses were still on a table where we left them.Breakfast was as good as ever but the evening meal which we had one night was a little disappointing. The quality of the meat was not very good.WE are returning to Marbella in May and will definitely
  • DAVID BRANDER 03-14-2014 Lovely time but missed having toiletries in room. Yes, know could have asked! As before, we like to sit by the pool, but no -one came near there to take any orders.
  • Hans Hans Karvonen 03-14-2014 Very very nice hotel. Near the sea, old town and golfcourses :-)
  • HENDRICUS MARIA KLEIN 03-13-2014 Very good and nice situatad hotel
  • MICHAEL JOHN PARRY 03-13-2014 "When we retun I hope we can have room 410 as this had the most wonderful view of the ocean and had a real ""feel good factor""."
  • STIJZRT MARKLAND 03-13-2014 We enjoyed the whole holiday. From the moment we arrived we found all the staff helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a very good position and the pool and garden areas are lovely. We went on the Guided Old Town Tour which we found very interesting and informative and we also attend the Spanish lesson which was also very informative and helpful.
  • MAEVE MARIE JOYCE 03-12-2014 Hotel & staff wonderful. very clean and relaxing.
  • ALAN GEORGE MANTELL 03-12-2014 Food is possibly the poorest of any hotel in which we have ever stayed. Great hotel but 2outof 10 for food.
  • THOMAS GERHARD TORGERSEN 03-11-2014 Very good
  • EVELINE ELISABETH LOUISE NELISSEN 03-11-2014 it was a very pleasant stay!!
  • ALFONS SILVERMAN (STANORE) 03-07-2014 We enjoyed our stay very much. We understand you are refurbishing your rooms. We stayed in 103 and are likely to reserve again for Feb/March next year. Hopefully all the work will have been done. As building work would be noisy.
  • SINEAD KATE SHEEHAN 03-03-2014 Mi madre se cayó en las escaleras cerca de la piscina y se hizo daño en la espalda, con lo cual ha sufrido más que una semana de dolor fuerte - mientras ustedes le cuidaron de manera fenomenal y le acompañaron a Urgencias y pagaron la factora, habríamos esperado un aviso que las escaleras estaban mojadas y había peligro o que se limpiaran las escaleras más temprano, para reducir la probabilidad de este tipo de accidente.
  • BARRIE JAMES DENNIS 03-02-2014 it was wonderful really enjoyed it
  • RORY PATRICK KELLEHER 03-02-2014 We stayed last year, enjoyed it very much, came this year. We thought the food was even better this year. The fish choices were wonderful.
  • SUSAN VALERIE FRY 03-02-2014 My husband and I have been staying in the hotel for many years (possibly 8 times). We always stay in February to celebrate my birthday on 26th February and we will continue to do so as we always enjoy our stay in El Fuerte and Marbella. Thank you for your continued high standard of service and our thanks to all your staff who helped to make my birthday a memorable one.
  • DEREK CECIL MOORE 03-01-2014 Excellent as usual but would have liked more evening entertainment as we were half board and it was cold to wander about the town in the evening.
  • YVES BEGET 02-27-2014 Nous reviendrons dès que possible
  • DONGCHEN GAO 02-26-2014 all good , beside sometimes the room cleaning is not so clean. one day even take all the towel away and did not give them back.
  • LORD BRYAN ALFRED TRUEMAN 02-26-2014 This was our first return visit for many years to this Hotel. The Team overall work together as one to provide a very excellent service for their Guests. We do however, have one concern. Many of the Team members have been there many years. With only one exception did we see a younger member working. To keep the success of this superb Hotel moving forward to the future we feel it is imperative to both introduce and train younger persons whilst the older Team Members are still in place. Without th
  • JONAS FREDRIK MATTSSON 02-24-2014 "We had an excellens stay end enhoyed it vey much. Only negative was the beds which was too hard and the blanket was too thin in irder to get a ""cozy "" feeling. "
  • CAROLINE KNAFF 02-24-2014 nice place to be
  • ROBIN JOHN GIBSON 02-23-2014 I wasn''t happy with the building work going on above my room starting early on two days and the builders telling us to go in our room so we couldn''t use the balcony - we had to put up with hammering with no mention from reception or offer to discount the room
  • IRIS ANNIE LEWIS VANCE (Northern Ireland) 02-21-2014 We use this hotel 3 times each year for the past 7years now and are always made very welcome, the staff at reception are a pleasure to deal with, also the staff in all other areas of the hotel are very pleasant and are always very available to help you with any queries you may have. We always get the room we request which is very good and they make their repeat clients very welcome. One thing i would ask, i am in the friends club and have never had a complinentary upgrade on arrival and read
  • JOHN JOSEPH TAYLOR 02-20-2014 Very pleasant stay in a very nice hotel. I will be happy to recommend it to all. Rooms nice, shower etc fine. Breakfast lovely, bar cosy.
  • RACHEL ANNE HUNIER 02-19-2014 Only disappointment was indoor pool was not open the 1st day & we booked especially for pool with young children. Also I emailed in advance to check if the babies under 2 had to wear a swim hat & was told they did not need to, but swim attendant insisted my grand daughter had to wear a hat which she didnt like.
  • BRETT ROBERT RIDLEY 02-18-2014 I thought the hotel was lovely but the quality of the food for a luxury hotel left a lot to be desired.
  • MARGARET VALERIE GOOD (kinsale) 02-18-2014 I know you are helping the environment but we did miss the bottles of body lotion,shampoo and showergel. The dispenser was difficult to use and the product was not as what was in the bottles!
  • JOHN CECIL BILES 02-17-2014 We enjoyed our stay immensely and could not fault the hotel in any way
  • KARI OLAVI PLATAN 02-12-2014 It is always nice to stay at a hotel with friendly atmosphere and very good cooking.
  • FAEGHEH HAJ BOLOURI 02-10-2014 The reception service was not as expected with the exception of one gentleman who was very friendly and helpful! The service in the reception is very important for me.
  • FEDERICA GOBBO 02-10-2014 The room was very small to be a double room!
  • MARTIN SETH GERVAIS WALSH 02-08-2014 For as long as I can remember this is the first 4x hotel that I''ve stayed in where I had to take my luggage to the room without assistance. Not good, not good at all!
  • STUART JOHN PEAKER 02-05-2014 This is our 3 stay and as we are a party of 10 this year it was a disappointment that staff were not as quick to clean up at breakfast. Not as good as other years we have been.
  • KIM MORDECAI 02-03-2014 Excellent hotel, clean and staff very helpful and friendly, would definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family.
  • BRIAN WHITTINGHAM (Dorchester) 02-02-2014 Not happy that a charge of ?12 per day was made for parking the car in one of the hotel car parks, as only overnight parking was needed. Will therefore look to park the car somewhere else in future at a reduced price!
  • GEORGE BRUCE FORD 02-01-2014 I was very impressed the facilities and the staff support.
  • IAN PRICE 01-28-2014 The check out was very poor. Only one member of staff at the front desk who didnt acknowledge us. Other staff member s were in the back office. Didnt have time to wait or explain why we needed to check out. Very Poor
  • NEVILLE JACKSON 01-26-2014 I left an article in the room and Gonzalo made sure I was able to collect it and kept me informed. He was very helpful.
  • ROSEMARY KATHARINE CONNOLLY 01-26-2014 An excellent hotel, in a great location.
  • MICHAEL WALTER ROXBURGH (Kidlington) 01-26-2014 Breakfast superb. Buffet dinner very good. Quality of carta dinner was not good, in particular live cooking - needs sorting out. Fish was grey and small, vegetables awful till I believe someone complained, after which broccoli was provided, then peas and ham. However, plates were nearly always cold, as were vegetables, chips and jacket potatoes. You must not serve hot food on cold plates, by the time you have walked back to your table, everything is cold. This spoils an otherwise excellent hotel
  • JAMFS ANDREW JOHNSTON 01-19-2014 Very pleased that Hotel manager(Maria) took on board our difficulties with the lift and complaint regarding noisy football quests. She also is to check out disabled facilities in sister Hotel Miramar and e-mail results to me so that I can plan a future stay.
  • DAVID GRANT 01-18-2014 Disimprovement since my last stay in 2012, but still a very nice experience!
  • JAN CHRISTER VIBERG 01-17-2014 fantastic location centrally in town and by the sea. All surrounded by the beautiful garden. Shortly, a peaceful place in busy Marbella.
  • PAULINE MARY MORRIS 01-16-2014 Some noise at night on Floor 6. Doors banging and shouting.(could have been football team?)
  • VINCENT ANDRE VANBILLEMONT 01-09-2014 i have been 2 times this year in the hotel, first the miramar, then fuerte marbella, two times i booked the junior sweet, and two times i had a view on the street, what is a bit deasappoined, and i thinking of not coming back , sorry
  • EILEEN SHEILA WOOLVERTON 01-09-2014 New Year Gala meal was poor - slow service - not sufficient staff to provide waiter service properly. Perhaps wrong menu for such a large number of guests
  • ISABELLA MARY MASTERS 01-09-2014 Breakfast were very good ,except coffee very disappointed, ,I expect fresh ground coffee. . Meat serve on New Year''s Eve ,was sadly mostly uneaten, due to large bone not cooked enough.. I always was taught that fish and meat should be prepared separate . Are E.U regulations not applicable in Spain??
  • FINELLA BRITO BABAPULLE 01-07-2014 Very good hotel. Reception staff should have reminded people about the free Spanish lesson
  • VIC OR JOHN SEGALL 01-07-2014 New Year''s Eve alternative menu or fish alternative
  • Gemma Rachel DUNN 01-05-2014 I thought our room was very small & closterfobic at times as it was a corner room. The hotel entertain ment could have been better & mire suitable to younger guests. The tv in the room was also very poor for such a high star rating hotel, i would have expected sky television or at least a few more English channels. I would not normally watch tv on hols but there was very little to do un the evenings.
  • THOMAS BARR JACK (Sunderland) 01-04-2014 Very pleasant stay as usual, we felt the food quality had improved this year, and the morning welcome at breakfast from the restaurant manager and staff started our day off well.
  • MARTIN BRENDAN GERAGHTY 01-04-2014 We have been guests for the past two years for new year . The only fault Iwe have is the way New Years evening is held . We do not wish to take part in the formal dinner ect , but like last year the bar was closed to guests who hadn''t purchased a ticket . I think the management could make other arrangements for there guests who do not wish to attend the formal evening . Other than this we always enjoy your lovely hotel and look forward to our next visit regards Martin .
  • LISA ANNE JENKINS 12-29-2013 We loved the board walk right outside the back door and all the shopping and food choices it had to offer. The international flavor of the guests with British and Germans was fun.
  • STEPHEN METCALF (WINCHESTER) 12-29-2013 Amigos site needs to be more informative and useful (changed password never recognised, no idea what points accumulated, needs stronger presentation and integration
  • JOHN BARRETT 12-27-2013 we really enjoyed our stay in el Fuerte and look forward to returning in the near future, it is lovely to stay in a Hotel that still has atmosphere and the personal touch.
  • ALEXANDER CRAIG WIGHT 12-25-2013 A reasonable experience somewhat anchored by poor service planning. Breakfast service is a disaster and needs a re-think. I don''t want to have to guess how to organise my breakfast and I don''t appreciate having to chase down the waiter for a cup of coffee. I would have liked the host to explain how breakfast service works rather than just being shown to a table. This business of needing a shower cap to swim is not a good idea. If you''re going to do this you must explain it all at check in. I
  • SARAH MARTINE DENT 12-16-2013 We picked this hotel for the following reasons. The location on the beach yet close to the old town. The facility of the gym which we found outstanding and the indoor pool. The staff and instructers in the gym were fantastic. The price to quality relationship. We were not disappointed in any way and would love to return. Now we have seen the amazing facilities and healthy options available at breakfast we are going to put together our own ''fitness'' holiday next time we come. The only critici
  • SILJE LOG HOFSTAD 12-15-2013 Housekeeping-staff was very friendly and helpful, and even helped us with the luggage the last day even though she did not have to. Very content with the staff.
  • SUSAN MARGHARITA BUTLER 12-15-2013 the only problem we had was with the sat nav not accepting the name of your road, however found it in the end by using calle del fuerte - we orig booked for the miramar and I am so pleased it was changed as your hotel is much nearer everything - it is a wonderful hotel and when we come to marbella again we will def use it - the staff are wonderful as well - so helpful - thank you all for a wonderful stay xxx
  • ADDO JOHANNES DAMHUIS 12-11-2013 Thank you very much for the wonderfull week. You really made the stay in Spain a lot better! We were in room 440/444 last week. I also made the tripadvisor recommendation but it''s still pending. Thanx!
  • PETER JOSEPH CREEDON 12-10-2013 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Fuerte Marbella again this year. The facilities and service are second to none and we would hope to return again in the future. P Creedon.
  • MEISOUN SALEH 12-09-2013 Very helpful and kind staff. Near to the beach and old town.
  • TERESA LOUISE WARR 12-08-2013 Really good and very enjoyable. Thank you
  • LARS OLUF FOGDAL 12-06-2013 Fantastic breakfirst.....
  • LINDA MARY PROUT 12-06-2013 We were part of an organised trip so part of the survey does not apply to us.We did,however thoroughly enjoy staying in your hotel. Rod and Linda Prout.
  • JULIE ANN TEATUM 12-05-2013 The recveption staff gave a service over and above what was expected i was very impressed!!
  • JUDITI LEES 12-04-2013 All of my holidays are taken with you, I believe that confirms how satisfied I am and also it feels as comfortable as home. Do not change anything please and I will continue to come for many years I hope and have always recommended you to friends.
  • BRIAN JACK ROGERS 12-04-2013 Would stay in another fuerte hotel again
  • DIANA EVE ALLEN 12-03-2013 My 2nd visit to your hotel and it´s a pleasure to stay there.
  • ERNEST JOHNSON (SUNDERLAND) 11-30-2013 Back to your very best,only problem the coffee in our room is a very poor quality and should be improved.
  • PAULUS JOHANNES VAN DEN HOGEN (UDENDAM) 11-30-2013 room 423 noise from the elevator
  • RICHARD HICKMAN (TEDDINGTON) 11-28-2013 great hotel position rooms will need updating soon?
  • YVONNE MARIE BELLE ISLE 11-28-2013 I enjoyed using the swimming pool very much.
  • MARC VICTOR VUURSTAEK 11-27-2013 Very good hotel, nice breakfast, well situated
  • EDWARD FRANCIS MC GRATH 11-26-2013 Overall a very enjoyable stay but the Bar staff could be more customer friendly.
  • NANCY GAY LICHTEN 11-25-2013 The people at your front desk during my stay were absolutely fabulous. I was there on business for my spouse''s business. He had people checking into the hotel. Your staff provided assistance in a way that I have never seen before. Bravo.Thank you. Nancy Lichten
  • CHARLES JOSEPH SACARELLO 11-25-2013 We recommend you offer Non Smoking rooms. Our room smelt of tobacco.
  • INEZ MARIA PRINS 11-24-2013 We had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect. Is it also possible to have a room for invalid person?
  • JOHANNES ALBERTUS VAN DE WEERD 11-23-2013 Very friendly and helpfull employees
  • CLARA MARIA POPKEN 11-22-2013 We have enjoyed the short break and will come back next year. The combination of sun and beach with places like Granada and Ronda (for this year) was great.
  • DOROTHY LILIAN SPARKS 11-22-2013 The number of times we have stayed at the hotel ( approximately 15 ) speaks volumes for how much much we enjoy everything about it . It is a top quality hotel set in a perfect location right on the Promenade but close to the attraction of the old town. It sports an indoor and outdoor pool, spa facilities and extensive sun bathing areas all well used by the guests. As far as this visit was concerned all the splendid services and facilities provided by the hotel were supplemented by perfect weath
  • PHILIP MCCAUL (DUBLIN - 4) 11-21-2013 the food in the hot containers on the buffet was not nearly as hot as it should have been
  • NUNO MAN ALVES FRANCO FAVINHA 11-21-2013 I went in business to marbella and choose El Fuerte. It was my first time there but will not be my last... I loved everything, hotel very clean, very friendly environment in the front desk, and what can I say about breakfast? King one.. I don''t remember anything that was missing there...
  • KIERAN FLYNN 11-20-2013 We particularly liked the room 210 for at our age we did not have to leave the balcony to enjoy the sun. The person responsible for providing an indoor swimming pool at this time of the year requires great praise for I found the facility excellent and in particular warm when you got out.
  • KARI KALERVO ANSIO (HELSINKI) 11-20-2013 In Beach Club restaurant we wanted to sit inside, but we were asked to sit next to open door tables even there were several, maybe 4-5 free tables in the back part of the restaurant! Only after our strong request we were allowed to get table there, because we told that the next to door tables were so windy that day and we are already over 70years old and don''t want to sit in windy place. We didn''t understood their attiitude, because all those back side tables remained free all the lu
  • ANDREW RICHARD REED 11-19-2013 The bed was hard
  • HARMANUS BELTMAN 11-17-2013 The beds were very hard!
  • JOEL JEAN LOUIS BESSE 11-16-2013 With refreshed bedrooms furniture/decoration, better breakfast food and a better interactive staff the hotel would be present an excellent quality/price ratio.
  • MARIA ADRIANA HENRICA BLOX 11-14-2013 Excellent Hotel and position to the Boulevard/beach and Old city of Marbella
  • JORMA AULIS OSKARI LESKINEN 11-14-2013 Keep caring of customers ... as you do
  • ANNETTE LENA MARIE BORLAND 11-12-2013 Great hotel. Great and helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast was fantastic with nothing missing. The cocktails in the bar was great. The food in the beach club was really nice. The hotel was charming could do with som updating in some places. The only minus was hard madras, I think it is important that you sleep well as you always remember that. Thank you for a great stay!
  • SARAH RACHAEL BAILLIE (BANGOR) 11-12-2013 we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying with you again in the future.
  • GEORGE ROBERT BANKS 11-12-2013 everything was fine
  • GEORGE WILLIAM JOSEPH MAYBURY 11-12-2013 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your excellent hotel and only wish that we could have stayed longer.
  • JOHN WILLIAM KAVANAGH 11-12-2013 Toiletries in bathrooms could be improved
  • JAMES MARTIN NOUD (KILDARD) 11-08-2013 Appears there is only dancing / music on Friday and Sat nights, we would recommend you have good music every night of the week as there are very few people in your bar on Sun, Mon and Tue when we checked. You were very busy on Fri and Sat when you had good dance music and your bar staff were good and busy.
  • MOHAMED HAILAN 11-07-2013 I have stayed 6 nights in this hotel and I have enjoyed every minute of it I highly recommended this hotel for anyone who is looking for good quality for money. Mr M. Hailan United Kingdom
  • GLENN STEVEN PETER HOLLAND 11-06-2013 The hotel is ideally situated for beaches and the town. When we booked the holiday in the uk, we stipulated a double room as this was our honeymoon. On arrival we were allocated a twin room. Sonia in particular was very helpful in relocating us to a front facing room with a king size bed the next day. We found all the staff in general to be very helpful.
  • CARL PETEP IVES (WARWICKSHIRE) 11-05-2013 Excellent as always !!
  • ANTHONY JOHN DAVIES 11-05-2013 unfortunately on last day my daughter had her iphone stolen from her bag that was left beside her mother who was on a lounger on the grass just below the patio. The bag had been rifled through and deposited just a few yards away.
  • NORA MARIA SHEEHAN 11-05-2013 Great hotel, definitely hope to visit again. Hotel spotless, my room was always cleaned and presented to a high standard. As said above my only grievance was with two or three of the younger waiters at the morning breakfast service. They need to be taken aside by their older colleagues and shown how to treat clients of the hotel in a respectful and friendly manner. They are lowering the standard of an otherwise excellent hotel.
  • GERALD MICHAEL REILLY 11-04-2013 Really enjoyed my stay and hotel very central.... Couple housekeeping issues regarding room... No towels in room when I went to look so asked for them.....Musty smell in room which,on my departure,I discovered that there was partially eaten loaf of bread and other edible items in press that had been left by someone previous which at this stage were gone bluemouldy....Brought cleaner from floor below to show to her so that she could report..... Regards
  • HUGUES MARCEL LUCIEN BARCIET 11-04-2013 very nice stay with wonderfull view on the see. our very quiet and it was a real pleasure to sleep in our room with only the noise of the waves. For sure we''ll come back very soon.
  • MARY MARSHALL FLOCKHART 11-04-2013 Loved the hotel, its situation is ideal for the beach or the old town. Staff very helpful and always very pleasant.Will definitely use again and definitely recommend
  • TOM FORSYTH (KNOWLE SOLIHULL) 11-04-2013 We have retured to the Hotel for the past (15) years and we look forward to many more stays with you
  • JAMES JOSEPH MC AULIFFE 11-03-2013 Excellent food and very friendly staff we are looking forward to staying there again
  • BRIAN SNODDON 11-03-2013 All the staff were very friendly. Isobel the maid on our floor was so friendly and helpful. Couldn''t do enough to help. The hotel was lovely. We''ll definitely be back
  • MARK DAVID STAPLEY 11-02-2013 Excellent really felt valued and welcome.
  • ALISON MARY HIGGINSON 11-02-2013 Our stay was very enjoyable. Everything was fabulous
  • MARK DUNCAN KUEHN 11-01-2013 Wonderful staff with very good English language skill. Can''t say enough good things. Smoke from ohters on the balconies was very obnoxious. If I had occasion to recommend I would warn of this problem. I would suggest putting smokers on the upper levels of the street side. If they want to enjoy a sea view let them go downstairs and outside to smoke.
  • PAULA POOLE 11-01-2013 Really enjoyed it. Friendly helpful staff. Good food and service.
  • LINDA HELEN MULCAHY 10-31-2013 When trying to check in/out there was only one receptionist on duty and we had to wait 30 mins to check out - not good when rushing to the airport to catch a flight
  • MELINDA ANN CARR RUBY 10-31-2013 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were particularly impressed with the service. You have a lovely team of staff who all went out if their way to make our stay special. Thank you!
  • OONAGH ODRISCOLL 10-31-2013 I really enjoyed my stay in every way. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. I cannot think of anything I want to complain about, everything I wanted was catered for with efficiently and friendliness. The only thing I had a small problem with was the bed, I had a sore back during the night and it got worse until I got up in the morning. That was the only thing I missed, my bed, it''s firm but comfortable. Maybe a good topper could remedy the hard bed? Otherwise I hope to stay in El Fuerte
  • RICHARD STEPHEN BURT (STAFFORDSHIRE) 10-30-2013 Brilliant trip as always. Many thanks. The reception staff and restaurant staff and chefs are great and look after me so we''ll. cannot wait for next trip
  • ANDREW NICHOLAS WILTSHIRE 10-28-2013 having stayed with you a number of times and recently visited other hotels, I have to say that the service in bar and restaurant had diminished somewhat and felt more staff were required
  • JAAK JAERV 10-27-2013 Great location
  • THERESE MASTERSON 10-26-2013 Very enjoyable stay. However I was very disappointed with our classic room. While I was not expecting a sea view or balcony, I did not expect to be looking out at the roof of the main entrance into the hotel! Room 123 in the el fuerte marbella.
  • SHEILA O MAHONY 10-26-2013 We stay at the el fuerte twice a year for a number of years now and love coming back. Looking forward trip in march or april
  • LARS BRAGE BERG 10-25-2013 Perfect location,bland and polite staff,varied and very delicious breakfast!
  • MARY JUDGE MAGNER 10-24-2013 Air conditioning in room was not effective , apart from that I love this hotel particularly for location
  • MAX GRINGRAS 10-24-2013 As always, very friendly and easy
  • JUDITH ROSEMARY SUTTLING 10-23-2013 "Apart from the poor quality and presentation of the food, we were surprised to be asked to pay 7 euros for the use of a hotel lounger on the beach opposite the hotel. We could not obtain even a glass of water with our evening meal unless we bought a bottle of water. Even a glass of milk was charged at 2 euros. At the so-called Gala Dinner we were given half a glass of Cava and a rose and the food was as ordinary as usual. On asking for another glass of Cava I was told to ask the Manager and
  • BRIAN TAYLOR (DURHAM) 10-23-2013 Our room 401was a lovely room but to warmAC was non existant
  • AIDEEN CARMEL DARCY 10-22-2013 I have stayed in El Fuerte / Marbella almost every year since 1996. I have noticed a continual reduction in service level, particularly during my recent visit. Customer loyalty used to be recognised, but no longer. I gave previously recommended this hotel to many friends and colleagues, but would be reluctant to do so in future. Services that used to be included within the Club de Amigos are now only provided within the Exclusive option at an additional ?30 per day - further evidence of ignoring
  • JAMES BARLOW (LYTHAM ST. ANNES) 10-22-2013 we enjoy recognising the people who work there every year. A special thank you to the director Maria who always makes us feel welcome. Looking forward to next year.
  • JANICE COATES (WARRINGTON - CHESHIRE) 10-22-2013 Staff very helpful but the hotel was full and they really could of done with extra waiters at breakfast and for the evening meal.on a couple of occasions we sat down to a dirty table cloth.i visited the gym and a couple of classes pilates and yoga and really enjoyed them I also love both pools which were spotless.
  • JEAN MANUEL MARTIN 10-21-2013 Nous avons beaucoup apprécié, le rapport qualité/prix , le confort , le buffet du petit déjeuner et la situation à la fois près de la vieille ville et directement sur la digue. La centrale de réservation fait un maximum pour satisfaire les demandes du client.Le personnel est serviable et compétent ! Merci.
  • CHRISTOPHER JOHN CALLAN 10-21-2013 We had a great time at El Fuerte - we would definitely go back again.
  • LAURENCE JOSEPH TUOMEY 10-20-2013 One had the sense of a lot of things being cut back in the hotel and staff were under pressure. This is not surprising given the economic climate but perhaps enough has been done given the 4 star status of the hotel, Despite this comment ,we had a very enjoyable stay and the staff were excellent.
  • GRAHAM JOHN ASHLEY 10-20-2013 Particularly appreciated the hotel''s directive that sunbeds cannot be reserved.
  • JOHN CHRISTOPHER OMAHONY (Dublin) 10-19-2013 Our stay was less enjoyable that every other time because of the delays in the dining room for dinner and the lack of entertainment in the bar. Because of this we would not book full board. We would only book bed and breakfast.
  • THOMAS ORIORDAN 10-19-2013 very pleased with our stay, will be back again in the spring and autumn for the over 55,s deal
  • COLIN EDWARD WYATT 10-18-2013 Rewarding that the director had such a visible presence in the Hotel. Her friendly and caring approach was a leading example for her team. We found this one of the friendliest hotels that we have stayed in.
  • BARBARA WILLIAMS 10-17-2013 The hotel was as expected and we look forward to our next visit next year.
  • KORNELIS FOKKO RIPMEESTER 10-16-2013 The best place in Marbella,have also informed the 4DW staff regarding the good hotel.See you next year in October for the next 4DW experiences.
  • JEAN LOUIS MATHIEU HOUPRESSE 10-15-2013 Hôtel très bien situé, très confortable,chambre agréable, bar agréable, très beaux salons. Piscines très ( trop ) fréquentées. Restaurant très moyen. Personnel souvent froid ( fin de saison ? ), en général accueil peu chaleureux.
  • JUDITH ANN ROSS 10-15-2013 The room were not very good in terms of position as they were right on the front and as the air conditioning was very noisy it meant that we had to have the window open. Also it was essential to have the blackout blind in use do the extremely bright light from hotel sign. I would not stay in these rooms ever again
  • HAROLD RALPH SOCHAN 10-15-2013 The check-in staff were particularly helpful with our check-in as we had an extra guest with us and they had to set up an extra bed. The suite we were in faced the Mediterranean and was particularly lovely with a balcony. Thank you so much for a wonderful, if short, stay. We will definitely recommend your hotel, and hope to return one day.
  • GAVAN STCPHEN COWELL 10-14-2013 A car was offered in the price, and it was said that the car was on site. We arrived at the airport and were greeted by a rude lady who said go to the transfer bus and wait. I got a taxi, cost of 85 euro. This would not stop me coming back, but if the offer is on site, that does not mean a bus ride. But it was great to be back at the Fuerte.
  • ALISON SARAH MAIR 10-14-2013 Have stayed at your hotel on many occasion and found it to be a welcoming, happy hotel with excellent staff.
  • ARIE JOHANN DE GROOT (JAVEA-XABIA) 10-13-2013 We had a very nice stay in your hotel. It only was a pity that there was no possibility to have diner a la card. We do not like buffets!
  • JOHANNES CHRISTIANUS DONA (s Hertogenbosch) 10-13-2013 the internet connexion is very slow
  • AART BOELE 10-13-2013 We always have a great time at your hotel. We are pleased about the very nice staff very much.
  • DEBORAH LESLEY TAYLOR 10-13-2013 This was our second stay and overall we very much enjoyed it. Sadly, we had asked for two rooms together (2 couples) and at the last minute we were told we couldn''t have this, or even two rooms in the same building, which was rather disappointing. However, apart from this the rooms allocated had great views and were in excellent condition.
  • MARY MONICA TALBOT 10-12-2013 we had a wonderful time could not fault anything, it was our fifth time to stay with the El Fuerte Hotels .
  • CECILIA MARGARETHA GILLBERG 10-11-2013 Please pay back the amount you have taken twice on the 7th of Oct 2013, and please answer my mail about this. cecilia.gillberg@telia.com
  • TERRENCE EVANS 10-10-2013 From the moment we arrived at the Fuerte Marbella we felt at home - only with better weather! The hotel is comfortable and staff welcoming and friendly. We have holidayed there before, and we will certainly be returning.
  • ESTHER FRAIS 10-10-2013 The whole of the bar area needs modernizing. The area is dark old and unwelcomming.
  • DENNIS MICHAEL MCGANNON 10-10-2013 The wifi is very bad it wont stay connected
  • ELIZABETH ANN SKEHAN 10-10-2013 Couldn''t fault the hotel in any way, spotless, staff were friendly and helpfull
  • BOBBY ANTHONY BURNS 10-08-2013 Although given Amigo rate (-10%) another of the group booked independently and got -20%.
  • IRIS ANNIE LEWIS VANCE (Northern Ireland) 10-08-2013 We use this hotel 3 times each year and always come back home very happy with our stay, the staff are all very helpful and friendly i find to every customer. Again i am looking forward to my next stay in feb''14. I am always there for my birthday and am greeted at breakfast with best wishes and received a lovely bottle of champagne on ice but this time it did not happen but that didnt stop me having a great day as i think this must have been overlooked. Would definitely recommend this hotel t
  • HOWARD LATHAM PERRIN 10-08-2013 This is the 6th time I have stayed and as ever all was great.
  • TRFVOR IAN PRESS 10-07-2013 The hotel is excellent in every respect apart from the air conditioning which is not very effective. Some of the party suggested it was turned off at night but I suspect it was just overloaded. Would be interested to know.
  • MICHAEL WOLOSCHAK 10-07-2013 Fitness center needs better morning hours and did not keep to their posted evening hours. I prefer to use the gym early (6am) and was not able to use the gym at all on days I had tours. This was a major issue for me. Many full service hotels have 24 hour fitness centers.
  • JAY E MINTZER 10-04-2013 as stated above, air conditioning wasnt working properly. Maintenance indicate that the thermostat was old but didnt solve the problem. Also, one day we didnt get requested wake up call. Made problems for my days planning.
  • BRIAN FREDERICK SHAW (DISS - NORFOLK) 10-03-2013 In the 17 years we visit it has improved every year.
  • SEAMUS DALY 10-01-2013 our stay was most pleasant, beautiful hotel in a great location. we will certainly be back next year
  • PATRICK O KELLY 09-30-2013 A good place to chill out, you can become involved or just do your own thing.
  • HEIDI MARCHEATA WHITTINGHAM 09-30-2013 Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you,it was my birthday and the hotel kindly gave me a bottle of cava a lovely gesture
  • ZOR THIN MAUNG 09-29-2013 It is understandable that the hotel is trying to be green by minimising paper use, but clearer written information is desirable in the rooms regarding hotel facilities such as the use of gym, pool and other facilities. It would be helpful if the information in your brochure about the need to wear a cap when using the indoor pool.
  • ANDREW SIMON LYNN 09-28-2013 Perfect in every way.I will enjoy more services i imagine when my girls get a little older
  • JOHANNES VAN DEN HEUVEL 09-27-2013 Breakfast was terrible. had to stay in line every day. System was not correct. everyone was complaining.
  • WALTER FINBARR ORMOND (COUNTRY CORK) 09-26-2013 We were with you for 15 days this year and the room door key had to be recharged? 11 times, a menence as you got up to your room and had to go back to reception to have it ???. We always found this a proplem in our five visits to you.
  • LORRAINE BLEAKLEY 09-25-2013 We were very happy with all aspects of Hotel when we visited last year and as a result we returned this year. We very much look forward to visiting Hotel Fuerte, Marbelle in the future.
  • MARTYN SIBSON 09-25-2013 Very enjoyable stay. Sunbeds are still reserved. Towels are not available until 10.00am but guests use towels from the previos day to reserve sunbeds. This is not a probels for 30 minutes or so but many sunbeds were resefved for hours without being used. !!
  • JOHANNES WESDORP 09-24-2013 For the 10th time we stayed in El Fuerte Hoteles and again it was fantastic. We are looking forward coming here next year!
  • PAUL JOHN FRASER 09-24-2013 It was extremely disappointing to arrive late on Saturday night to be informed out room had been double booked and we had to spend the night at your sister hotel Marbella. Double bookings should not happen in this day and age. It demonstrates very poor organisational skills and professionalism. However, the issue was dealt with well at the time and very well by your staff the following day meaning that it did not ruin our holiday as it easily could have done
  • HUGH MAHON 09-22-2013 The location of the hotel is excellent
  • MICHAEL JOHN TUNBRIDGE 09-20-2013 Our room, 234, was a good size and very comfortable. We thought the quality of the towels could be improved and it would be good to have bath robes in the room. We found the cooked items at breakfast were always cold, despite having breakfast at 7.30am. Otherwise, everything worked out well and we would come again.
  • ANNA MARIE BARREIRO 09-19-2013 Was not our first visit, in fact, we have been there several times. In fact, we first stayed at the Puente Roma (did not enjoy at all), then we frequented Melia Don Pepe on at least three visits, but El Fuerte is our favorite, for location above all and the accommodations are adequate. Stayed at El Fuerte Miramar on one vacation, but it lacked something and the restaurant and bar personnel were not very accommodating. It is rather unfortunate that the beach in the surrounding area is more tim
  • RICKI STEPHEN BARRETT 09-18-2013 My second stay at the hotel and a truly great experience again. The room and balcony with the sea view was fantastic and very relaxing. The service was really good again and I can''t wait to book another trip!
  • VICTOR SELWYN (LONDON) 09-18-2013 Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is the 3rd time in just over a year.
  • SHARON MARGARET WILLIAMS 09-17-2013 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your hotel, the location was excellent, lovely well kept gardens and pools, good selection of services, really fiendly and helpful staff. Our little boy was treated like royalty by the staff, I will certainly recommend your hotel to anyone I know that is visiting Marbella
  • SARAH DUMVILLE 09-17-2013 All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was always cooked and presented to a high standard.
  • ANGELO MANUEL DEPONEO 09-17-2013 I would like you to pass on my extra thanks to Lola Munoz and Susana Sirtori, as they we excellent in their service in organising the stay for my family, friends and even ourselves, but also to Susana who''s help drawing my stay was excellent. She help me with many issues and helped resolve them, making the stay for my guests simple and easy. I am ready to come back and my partner and I will be staying wit you again. I have already had several good reviews from the guests too. It made our weddin
  • SUSAN CAROLINE BROWN 09-16-2013 There appeared to be more people than space and loungers in the garden/pool area. We then had to use the beach and were very disappointed to be charged for loungers on the Fuerte beach area. Slightly irritating that the lane pool lost 2 lanes every afternoon for kids lessons. The hotel seemed to be a bit shabbier than before and the furniture in our room could do with updating.
  • JEAN ROSS (LONGFIELD - KENT) 09-16-2013 We have been a repeat customer for many years, staying several times per year. We have been advised that we cannot book a preferred room, even long in advance. Other customers have been able to do this. We would lik to book our preferred room for next year. The prices are not consistent. Our holida in June for a front sea view was approximately 200 euros dearer than our September visit for a side sea view. This seems rather odd?
  • JACQUELINE MARY HIGGINS 09-15-2013 We spent a wonderful 3 days at Fuerte. We hadn''t been back for a few years & it was great to be able to spend our time at this hotel. Fuerte has a very relaxed yet efficient ambience which is very important when on a break away. I hope to return again in 2014.
  • IAN DOCKER 09-14-2013 We have visited this Hotel many times what we like is the very good service that we always receive and the friendliness of all the staff and the excellent breakfast well done.
  • PAUL EDWARD MULCAHY 09-12-2013 we had a very pleasant stay at the El Fuerte and look forward to our next visit to your hotel, it is a jewel in the crown for Marbella as it''s so close by to everything and still offers an oasis of calmness and serenity. It is alos nice to see guests that are young couples, families, empty nesters and elderly all enjoying their holiday at the hotel
  • CHARLES MACBETH SMITH (Dunfermline) 09-12-2013 We love everything about el fuerte marbella simple.
  • BRYNLEY JOHN BIRLESON 09-12-2013 A short stay for one day..... and of site at a wedding for most of the time. But the time spent at the hotel was fabulous!
  • RONALD VAN HERPEN (BEEGDEN) 09-10-2013 Quality of the bed was poor, too narrow and too soft.
  • TOR HELGE OEKTER BORGERSEN 09-10-2013 I booked a junior suite and when we arrived we were offered room no.147. No view at all, only trees and plants. I also requested a room not in 1. or 2. floor. The reception insisted that we have booked a room With sea side view, which I did not do. In Your confirmation of my booking it says nothing about sea side view. On wedensday 28th I was called up for confirming my arrivel and went thru the details of my booking and the lady who called confirm sea view, not sea side view. After a long ti
  • BRUCE DONALD LINDSEY 09-09-2013 We have stayed there twice, and this time I posted an excellent review on TripAdvisor. We only had one small problem with a noisy room (102 is RIGHT above kitchen doors and quite loud from 7:00 to 10:00 AM) but we were moved after the first night without problems by a very friendly staff. Especially the manager - she was very professional and helpful.
  • LOUISE ANNE HEMSTED 09-09-2013 Sunbeds: would appreciate sunbeds that lie completely flat - your beds have a permanent slope = uncomfortable.
  • ROGER COLIN PHILCOX 09-04-2013 Poor WI FI SERVICE UNLESS YOU ARE SITTING IN HOTEL lOBBY
  • WILLIAM LOGAN 09-04-2013 stayed in hotel-numerous times, on most recent visit was provided with sea facing room on 4th floor, we immediately requested a change as the room was tiny, second room provided has more space ,however the furnishing was very old and had some damage,the bed side tables were totally unacceptable and had no room for storage. The toilet and bath space was very tired and requires an upgrade. the next time that i stay in this hotel i would ask to be provided with a room in the newer part of the hote
  • EMILE CORNELIS JOHANNES J LOMMEN 09-04-2013 Keep up the good work with not allowing reservation of loungers by the pool. Towel rack in bathroom room 337 is not in a handy position. There is plenty of space to place it elsewhere.
  • DOUGLAS PRATT 09-02-2013 "Most of my comments are ""as expected"" - this is not a negative comment, it is due to the fact that it was our 15th annual visit to the hotel and things are as good now as they were on our first visit. Keep up the good work. "
  • IAN PAUL BURNELL 08-30-2013 Hotel is a little tired and expensive for what you get. At least use of chairs on the beach should be free
  • LAILA GULBORG BRUTEIG 08-30-2013 we loved the stay and will stay again!
  • JILL VALERIE PAYNE 08-30-2013 I have stayed with you several times at different times of the year and always enjoyed it. In the height of the season it is noisy at night with other guest not taking people who might be asleep into consideration. I have already booked for 2014.
  • IKRAM BOUDALLAA 08-28-2013 We didn''t like the room 129 poor poor poor
  • HANNAH HURLEY (DUBLIN) 08-27-2013 Enjoy v.much staying with you.Could not ask for better.
  • TERRANCE MICHAEL DEWING 08-27-2013 Lovely hotel with nice room.
  • CLAUDE REILES 08-26-2013 I have never been in a hotel with such careful staff. It was also very good to see that the nice manager of the hotel was present in a restaurant and in contact with the guests.
  • ANNE MARGARET HEVERS 08-24-2013 Enjoyed a lovely week with my daughter and would return
  • SEAN BARRY 08-24-2013 We loved our stay in your hotel and we will be back.
  • MIKHAIL ILYAICH 08-22-2013 I could not get an iron and iron board in my room for 2 days. Horrible.
  • MARIANNE GERARDA S FOULON 08-20-2013 HAPPY!!!
  • VALERIE ARMSTRONG 08-19-2013 The towels were of poor quality, very ragged, grey and thin. And much too small. Apart from that, everything was fine.
  • LOUIS MARSHALL FARRAE III 08-16-2013 Great facilities, friendly staff and perfect location
  • JOHN EDWARD PERKINS 08-13-2013 To summarize - We love El Fuerte and have been coming every summer since 2006. However, when you pay money to cross the ocean to go to a luxury resort, you don''t expect to have towels doled out two by two along with shampoo and body wash. Nor do you expect to see towels in the room that are so thin and shabby, you almost don''t want to use them. This is not a complaint against the housekeepers who did their job extremely well. Also - although Maria is always fantastic, welcoming, and gracious,
  • JESUS GONZALEZ GIRON GUERVOS (TALAVERA DE LA REINA) 08-12-2013 Estancia en general agradable
  • JOSE BENITO SOUTO (CARDIFF) 08-11-2013 Staff friendly but very busy. We waited a long time to be served both for food and drinks, a few times we went out to eat and drink because of this. Your staff are struggling to cope, we think you need to emitter during the busy periods.
  • LOUISE CATHERINE MUNDY 08-10-2013 The hotel exceeded my expectations and I would defiantly come back. The only point I have is that the lifeguards repour. They weren''t very welcoming or as friendly to us as they where to other spanish.
  • LIINA MALVA 08-09-2013 Hotel was nice, especially I adore and love the wooden floors in hotel room. Mostly You have stone floors in Spain. Our room was nice and lot of space and good - big bed. Wonderful. Maybe You could have more variety in mini bar.
  • MICHAEL CLAYTON STOLIAR 08-07-2013 I was very pleased with my stay.
  • FRANCIS MCGRATH 08-05-2013 A very good hotel in every way. Very conveniently sited in the resort.
  • LENKA CORRIGAN 08-05-2013 We enjoyed our stay in Fuerta Marbella very much. Maybe it would be nice to know where we could place our empty water bottles and papers into recycling bins...
  • BILLY RONALD DOPSON 08-02-2013 overall very happy with our stay and we would come again.
  • SHMUEL BARAZANY 07-31-2013 we had very bad exepirience with your reception and we want recomend your hotel for such a price.
  • WILLEM GERARDUS BENS 07-29-2013 The hotel needs a more modern outlook and the rooms are to small for a 4 star hotel.
  • LOUISE SAMANTHA CHAIT 07-26-2013 This is the second time that I have stayed at the Fuerte Marbella and I really enjoy my time spent there. The location is perfect and the hotel and staff are great. I look forward to my next visit.
  • HARALD KALEVI THEODOR ING JAKOBSSON 07-26-2013 Tho sound from the elavator was disturbing us in the mornings.
  • MONA CHRISTINA GRENDLER 07-26-2013 wifi was not good
  • SHAUN O MALLEY (KENT) 07-26-2013 this was our second visit which we enjoyed and will visit you again,however the area around the pool was not cleaned properly,it was hosed down,but food,ashtrays and hair were not swept up.In addition the pool was used by many non resident which is a noise,comfort and security issue.
  • BARRY JUNIPER 07-26-2013 we really enjoyed spending our birthdays and our 50yrs golden wedding anniversary at el fuerte.we have got to know the staff well over the past 25yrs (such a long time)and it is a vacation which we always look forward to spending at el fuerte.thanks for your kindness and to the director-a true professional!ps we look forward to having our old room 207 next visit
  • GEORGINA CATHERINE SKEHAN 07-25-2013 My 3rd visit to the hotel. Excellent overall.
  • ANDREW DOYLE NEILSON 07-25-2013 We stayed in Fuerte Marbella and Vega in reception was very helpful in arranging our accommodation.
  • PIM RAINIER VAN STIPHOUT 07-25-2013 I think that one sink is not enough for a 2 person room.
  • INGEBORG VAN BENTEN 07-24-2013 The only negative point,is that we come here for the fifth time and we don''t understand why people who are staying in El Fuerte has to pay for the sunbeds by the beachclub!We always stay for two weeks with four people and than its cost a lot of money!Normaly are the beds for guests free when you stay in a 4 rate hotel.That''s the only thing that we found negative.We enjoy the rest of your hotel!
  • GRAHAM THOMAS 07-23-2013 1st class in all respects
  • GEORGES EL HABER 07-19-2013 It wal great
  • THOMAS MICHAEL DODSLEY 07-19-2013 This is probably the seventh or eighth time we have stayed at the el fuerte so we obviously rate it very highly. Pleased to see the high standards are being maintained.
  • ELIZABETH JOAN WALTERS 07-19-2013 good service but pool area not conducive to relaxing. The pool was very deep and lane divided which meant sporty swimming was the only option not sitting within the pool. The area needed more loungers and shade.
  • LAURENCE ANTHONY KINGSWOOD 07-18-2013 Very friendly, attentive and professional staff. Superb location, excellent parking facilities and very enjoyable entertainment programme. We shall certainly return.
  • CHRISTOPHER RHODES CROWCROFT 07-17-2013 Very disappointed with gym opening hours. Unacceptable that it was only open between 10 and 5/6pm on Saturday and Sunday - these are the times when as a guest we wanted to be out in the sun not exercising in the gym. Gym should have been available from at least 8.30am until 7pm at the weekend. For that reason alone I would not recommend the hotel to others.
  • JAIME TERENCE HUGHES 07-17-2013 Location, Service, Room, Cleaning, etc all excellent - if we return to Marbella no doubt that we would stay here again.
  • ANDREW ROWLINSON (DRONFIELD, DERBEYSHIRE) 07-15-2013 As usual all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room which was a front sea view one was excellent
  • SCOTT STAPLES 07-13-2013 Loved the hotel and facilities however the evening entertainment purely catered for the elderly. Have stayed at your sister hotel the Fuerte Miramar Spa where the evening entertainment was more varied and catered for a wider range of age
  • BARRY STEWART ELLIS (Beverley) 07-11-2013 Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, once again
  • JOSEPHINE ANNE E IGOE 07-11-2013 The 2nd time I stayed here. Loved the location and ambience. Not too formal yet nice clientele. Love the sitting out area. Would prefer room overlooking pool but had lovely stay... again.
  • EMMA JANE CHAMBERLIN 07-10-2013 "I was very disappointed with the level of service and the attitude of ""Nancy"" on reception when a problem with the bill arose. I found her argumentative and agressive! Before this happened my group of 9 were looking to rebook next year and now we are not too sure unless a significant discount can be offered. Jose on Reception was superb!!!"
  • MOHAMMED MAHDI M ALHADDAD 07-10-2013 Furniture is out dated and hotel need to be renovated.
  • SUSAN CHAPLIN 07-09-2013 "Not happy with the ""20 minute"" rule if you leave your sun bed unattended the pool attendant will remove your towels and personal items . Signs to inform guests not to reserve sun beds which is a good rule but nothing to say about leaving your sun bed for more than 20 minutes?. Unfortunately I was very upset to return from lunch (1hr) at the hotel to find all my personal items removed on the second day off my stay. I was informed by the pool attendant who also came back to inform me that the
  • KELLY LOUISE BLONDUN (WORCESTERPARK) 07-09-2013 Hotel is just a warm friendly wonderful place to be in the perfect location. The staff are all very friendly & it makes you feel welcome.
  • MICHAEL WILLIAM PETERS 07-08-2013 Pleasant stay, however some staff members are not really gentile. Not able to speak English. At the reception it is not logical when guests are queing, there are still two people behind the counter doing nothing at all rather looking at the walls. Also the restaurant is able to make more revenues when there is enough staff. The terrace was understaffed resulting in non-responsiveness from staff and no active additional sales (beverage refills).
  • CALLUM GRANT 07-07-2013 Reserving of sun loungers ,agree entirely to prevent overnight or early morning reserving .In our case we complied but were upset when we were threatened by attendant ,for having a late morning walk & then told by Manager Maria that for lunch break we had to vacate the loungers . I do sympathise with your ideals but consider this just a step too far .
  • DIANE HILLARY PÌCKERSGILL 07-07-2013 I have been coming to your hotel annually since 2006 and it never fails to deliver, will be back in 2014.
  • LINDA KAROLIINA KOSKINEN 07-05-2013 The breakfast is amasing and the staff in the restaurant. There are a lot to improve the service in the reception.
  • ANN CATHERINE PICKFORD 07-03-2013 Rooms need a little updating. Definitely need a full length mirror in room. Hairdryer needs to be better and need better toiletries r3h body cream.
  • JAN CORNELIS KANT 07-01-2013 "It was not made clear that a ""picknick breakfast"" should be ordered before 10 pm. "
  • YI MAN WAH 07-01-2013 The excursion to granadas was a disaster, the bus was late for 30 minutes. It took 3hours in marbella and malaga to pick up policy from different hotels, makes the traveling time 4 hours on each way.the time spent in the palace was only 2 hours which was quite unreasonable
  • CATHERINE ELIZABETH LESLI IMPEY 06-30-2013 Absolutely lovely hotel right on the beach in the centre of Marbella. Staff lovely.
  • DEIRDRE MCGOWAN (CORK C.) 06-29-2013 I have always enjoyed staying at El Fuerte for the home from home atmosphere and friendliness of the Staff. Looking forward to my next trip in September.
  • DANIIL ALORRTU OFQR F ALVENINO 06-27-2013 We had a lovely stay in your good hotel!!Your staff is very good in there job! We first went to Sevilla, Granada and Cordoba and we stayed the last 7 days to relax in your hotel and Marbella. A perfect way to end a memorable holiday. Our 2 teen boys enjoyed there stay as well.
  • PAMELA MARGARET COLLINS 06-26-2013 We stayed in room 616 in the Exclusive area. I did not find the furniture on the balcony very comfortable. The sun beds were not very good to lie on.
  • JOHN MARTIN RAGGETT 06-25-2013 The hotel location was excellent as was the set up of the hotel but the room 104 was very poor for the price paid. I had to ask for tea making equipment and a kettle. The kettle had to be placed on the floor because there were no available working electricity points. One did not work and another was hanging out of the wall!!! There were no glasses for drinking water!!! All very poor.
  • JOHN PHILIP MOISER (CLEETHORPES) 06-25-2013 Well done on the new sun bed policy
  • ANN PATRICIA CUSACK (DUBLIN 18) 06-24-2013 My only complaint is the complete indifference of the reception staff during our checkout. I would have expected a thank-you after paying our bill.
  • WILLIAM ROBERT CHARLES LINDSAY (BURCELL HILL) 06-22-2013 The only comment we would make was that the towels whilst changed almost more regularly than we required were a but ''tired''.
  • RONNY KRUITBOSCH 06-20-2013 We like the breakfast, lunch but not the dinner.
  • SABINE VAN MEETEREN 06-20-2013 I had a really wonderfull stay, thank you all so much
  • JENNIFER LOUISE MURTAGH 06-18-2013 Jose Antonio is a super-star! He should be the inspiration for the rest of the bar/restaurant staff. So friendly and helpful.
  • NAOMI HOLLAND 06-18-2013 This hotel is very well situated within the heart of Marbella, with easy access to the old town and some super restaurants. Its location beside the sea facilitates beach activities and prom walks
  • DEREK ANDREW 06-18-2013 The new poolside policy of removing ones personal belongings from temporarily vacated sunbeds is very annoying and will only lead to constant friction. We had ours removed during a lunch break of less than 1 hour. This is unacceptable when I have paid 1850 euros for a suite and a relaxing time. I fully agree with the no resrvation policy pre breakfast , but having sat out for 3 hours to the have a pool swimming or lunch break used as an opportunity to move your belongings will make us think of l
  • ULLA MARJATTA SARSILA 06-17-2013 Our hope to get separate beds was not taken into consideration (sent by email direct to the hotel).
  • BRIAN ANTHONY MICHAEL HARVEY 06-16-2013 We stayed for 9 nights with a four month old baby and had one of the best holiday experiences to date. We intend to return next year. Thanks El Fuerte Marbella
  • KATHLEEN BRIGID BRENDA DALY 06-14-2013 I have stayed at the El Fuerte hotel in Marbella on six prevoius occasions. I have always enjoyed my stay and will certainly return there when I next visit Marbella. It''s location is so central to shops and restaurants. The hotel facilities are excellent and the staff very helpful. I look forward to returning.
  • JULIE MCMORRINE (edinburgh) 06-14-2013 Some shade over the outside pool for the children for when they are playing in the pool area?
  • HILARY ROBERTSON MCKINLAY 06-13-2013 This was our second stay at your hotel and we enjoyed the experience very much. We only had breakfasts but they were excellent with lots of choice and everything fresh and well cooked. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the bar in the evenings. The gardens, pools and beach facitilies were very good with plenty of sunbeds and a ban on pre booking them which was a good idea.
  • HELEN MARY HUGGARD 06-12-2013 I found all of the staff very helpful and friendly,in particular I would like to mention Laura at reception who was particularly helpful.
  • ANN DAVISON 06-12-2013 Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, will be returning next year

  • THOMAS JOSEPH GABRIEL CALLAGHAN 06-09-2013 Overall very pleased good room good location
  • SUZANNA JACKSON (Brockenhurst) 06-09-2013 I have been coming to this hotel for 35 years. Safe in room now free - better. Free drinks in fridge good. Hotel and grounds still look lovely. Breakfast very good still. Very good that wi-fi available throughout hotel.
  • PAUL WEITZMAN (ST ALBANS HERTS) 06-09-2013 The air conditioning in our room 211 was not up to your usual standards.
  • MUNQETH MANSOUR 06-08-2013 every thing was good and the staff was good , but the car parking was very expensive .
  • MARY PAULINE BUCKLEY 06-07-2013 The manager I dealt with was excellent, restaurant staff superb, barman very pleasant. We had a lovely time in your hotel and hopefully will return for another holiday.
  • PAULA RYAN 06-07-2013 We went to attend a small wedding which took place at the Beach Club Restaurant and I would like to compliment the staff who looked after us on the day at the beach club. they were welcoming and professional and nothing was too much trouble. I would also like to especially thank Susanna Sirtori who made the arrangement and planning perfection. Without her help and support to my sister Joan O''Shaughnessy we would not have had such a successful event.
  • LUCIENNE HENRIËTTE VAN OPSTAL 06-05-2013 Very good, room should be renovated.
  • ZIA ESTEPHAN 06-05-2013 Excellent staff and domestics. Location is perfect near the city centre. We asked for non smoking room but I was given a smoking room with bad smoking smell - room 537. I did not ask to change the room because we already unpacked out suitcases. Also I was supposed to have a sea view but the balcony''s wall was so high that I could see the sea only if I stand up. There were other balconies with a better sea view since the balcony''s wall was lower. In the future I would ask for a room with a bett

  • ANNABELLE JOAN FELSENSTEIN (LONDON) 06-02-2013 I was very grateful for the help I received from everybody in the light of my handicap.
  • UGO GEOFFROY 05-30-2013 About the food, not many good fruits and not many choice like grapes or strawberries, banana, ... And the pastries sad. For the children also not many games.
  • TERENCE JOHN ROLPH (LEIGH ONSEA) 05-29-2013 An excellent hotel I have visited many times with a great location
  • PATRICK JOSEPH COUSINS 05-28-2013 Great location
  • VANESSA BARRIBALL (Surbiton) 05-26-2013 Why put do not reserve on the sun beds and then allow people to reserve
  • WILLEM PIETER VAN SCHAIK (DP KLOETINGE) 05-24-2013 We stayed in El Fuerte for the fifth year in a row, and we like to come again for the sixth time.
  • DAVID JAMES EDGAR 05-24-2013 very nice . lovely hotel . all facilities in good condition. will come back.
  • BRENDA ANN KING 05-23-2013 The only comment I would make is that there were no cornflakes at breakfast for over a week. I am a diabetic and therefore cannot eat cocopops and other cereal sweetened with sugar. It would also be nice if more things like weetabix were available for breakfast.
  • THERESA EILEEN I SHEEHAN 05-23-2013 Bar staff had a happy habit of not seeing and took quite a time to serve you.
  • KARL BERTIL WAERME 05-23-2013 Appreciated birthday presents from the hotel(Cava and a flexibel dashboard) Thanks!
  • RICHARD JAMES EDWARDS (halstead) 05-21-2013 Wifi problems. No welcome drink this year
  • SUSAN OCONNELL 05-21-2013 I felt that the hotel was not as good as previous years - the breakfast was not as good/fresh, there seemed to be less service staff in the bar/restaurant, the pool bar was not opened and it seemed a little tired. The staff were all very pleasant but we were a little disappointed this year.
  • CHANELLE DUNNE 05-21-2013 The hotel needs renovation around the pool. Beds were uncomfortable and it looked run down
  • WILLIAM VICTOR BLEASE 05-18-2013 An oasis in an area than is vastly overbuilt. It was very relaxing to return each evening to such a tranquil place.
  • JAMES CORR 05-18-2013 I have no complaints,except the weather!
  • MATTI TAPIO PESONEN 05-16-2013 First night when we arrived to Fuerte Miramar Hotel, there was some water coming down the whole building, so we had to move to Fuerte Marbella Hotel. Next day we had to move to Fuerte Miramar, where we had no hot water from bathroom during night and morning. We were travelling with a small baby so it was very unpleasant.
  • ELIZABETH ANNE JEFFERIES 05-15-2013 there are not enough sun beds round pool
  • OLGA TABAKOVA 05-13-2013 Air conditionaing in room 604 was not working properly. Also, it would be a plus if you add Russian TV channel.
  • PATRICIA HENNESSY 05-12-2013 It was our first holiday in Hotel Fuerte. We had a wonderful holiday .We found the facilities and service tremendous.Patricia
  • PATRICIA MARGARET BARTON 05-12-2013 We have stayed with you last year and about 4 years before that: your service is as good as ever. The only observation I would make is that your bathroom towels are starting to get very thin and are not the quality of previous years. Also, the supply of bath robes would be very welcome.
  • PAULUS KOOLEN 05-11-2013 It was fabulous!!!
  • JAMES PATRICK O CONNOR (WATERFORD) 05-10-2013 We had a very pleasant stay. We have been going to this hotel every year for twelve years. The staff are courteous, very friendly and efficient. We hope to return next year.
  • MAUREEN HIETT 05-08-2013 We enjoyed our stay very much the hotel is in a good location and the staff very helpfull
  • TROND OLAV IMSET (HEIMDAL) 05-06-2013 Near sentrum og the city. Next to the beach
  • BERNADETTE IRIS SMYTH 05-06-2013 We had a wonderful time and will return to this hotel in the very near future.
  • GIANLUCA FELETTI 05-03-2013 Proposal: special offer for repeated clients
  • MICHAEL BASIL ELLIS 04-30-2013 We enjoyed our stay very much. First impressions count and the staff we very helpful and pleasant and we were made to feel very welcome.
  • MAREK WRONSKI 04-30-2013 Lovely location. Had a very good room with sea view. Liked the way we were shown the room before we accepted it. Still not enough sunshades or parasols. Always had to go looking for one. The new sunbeds take up too much room and have to be paid for so the rest of us have less space and choice of where to sit!
  • HELEN KROGH HURUP FELBY 04-29-2013 I mis a program of the activities
  • KARL ROGER JOAKIM PETTERSSON LINDSTRAND 04-27-2013 Always a pleasure to visit El Fuerte Marbella. Even if it might be considered as a larger hotel, the atmosphere and hospitality is warm and familiar. Looking forward to come back soon again!
  • DAVID PHILIP HARDY HIELD (NORTH RIGTEN) 04-26-2013 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay once we had moved rooms. We found all staff extremely pleasant and helpful.

  • GRAHAM ROSS 04-23-2013 unfortunately there was left over food from the room next to us (ours was 324) which had been rejected and left on floor outside room all day and night.
  • JEFFREY THOMAS 04-23-2013 maybe more varied entertainment and new room towels?
  • THEO WILLY A VAN DE VAERD 04-22-2013 Zeer prettig verblijf. Uitstekend hotel met een perfecte prijs/kwaliteit verhouding. Vriendelijk onthaal in perfect nederlands aan de receptie. Ik maakte geen gebruik van de avondactiviteiten wegens de wandelingen in de stad Marbella en op het strand. Daardoor een neutrale beoordeling. Nette kamers en lekkere keuken.
  • JOHN WILFRED REGAN (GALLWAY) 04-16-2013 One of your great assets is your evening entertainment/dancing. Thursday, Friday and Saturday were excellent. I can understand it being quieter on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday - although some dancing would add to the overall experience. Sunday should definitely have dancing - a real let down to have a flat/dull Sunday night.
  • LINDA DEIRDRE MURPHY 04-16-2013 "I have never stayed in a hotel where ""all"" the staff were so obliging. i will certainly be staying with you again. We all had such a wonderfull time.Linda murphy"
  • DIRK ALBERT P HERMANS 04-14-2013 BAR SERVICE: I EXPECTED TO BE ABLE TO BUY SNACKS/SWEETS AND SMALL DRINKS IN THE BAR FOR USE IN OUR ROOM (because this was not available in the mini-bar in the room), BUT WE HAD TO BUY THIS IN A SHOP AROUND THE CORNER IN THE STREET. WE ONLY DISCOVERED THE BOX WITH THE COLD DRINKS & SWEETS THE NEXT DAY.
  • BO TORNOE NORHOLM 04-12-2013 Given my visit was partly business, It is very inconvenient with the wireless setup when your device needs to be given the username and password again and again and again and again. As an IT expert I would recommend a system with a static wireless access code. Should you need additional security it could be changed every now and then
  • DAVID JEFFERIES (SWANSEA) 04-11-2013 We have used the hotel for many years the main reason being its convenient location.The breakfast was quite ordinary and not always hot enough, the lunchtime snacks were very good but the service was hit and miss.
  • JULIE ANN WORDSWORTH (LEICESTER) 04-09-2013 We very much like the fact that the same staff are at the El Fuerte year after year and their friendly greeting is what makes the hotel somewhere we enjoy returning to again and again. In particular Juan Antonio & Morales (Bar Staff) you should be proud, they are a credit to the El Fuerte
  • ANNEMARIE DOOLEY 04-04-2013 For a 4 star hotel, I would expect tea and coffee facilities in room and no complimentary water. The shower in the room is of very poor quality.
  • FREDERICK WILLIAM LUCKMAN 03-30-2013 A lovely hotel in a lovely situation. Our two Daughters were coming over from England so we booked well in advance and expected to have adjacent or near rooms, ours was on the 4th floor our daughters on the 3rd floor, there were workmen in our corridor for two days doing something to the ceiling, so all in all it was a disaster
  • ROSITA JOSEPHINA MARI DOLMANS 03-30-2013 The hotel is not the hotel what is was before. It''s old fashioned. The new part where we stayed is even as bad as the old one. We booked for a new room and got at first one of the older ones. After complaining we got a room in the new building. There is no atmosphere in the hotel. It does not feel comfortable. It''s not worth having **** Breakfast was terrible. It was a big mess around. The floors where dirty. The food was displayed very unlikely, messy and not clean. Broken/damaged milkcups,
  • CIARAN MC GRATH 03-29-2013 Everything about outr stay was excellent. We will be back
  • ARI RAUNO ALANKO 03-29-2013 Great loacation, flexible and responsive service, excellent dinner and breakfast. Parking expensive, but nice and safe.
  • PHILIP ROGER KING 03-28-2013 Very pleasant stay in March. Would be nice to have some loungers in the indoor pool.
  • JAMES ANTHONY COTTER 03-28-2013 Its was just lovely, would definately recommend the hotel. Only suggestion I would have is some additional bed blankets, it was cold unfortunely during our stay. We did also intend to eat down on the beach restaurant but found the choice there very limited and left without ordering.
  • PETER JOHANNES THEODORUS MEIJS 03-28-2013 The location of the hotel is triple A, close to the beach, close to the old town, close to at least 100 of the 667 restaurants in Marbella, the hotel itself is a **** hotel, which tells it all
  • EDWARD CASIMIR KEANE 03-28-2013 the only disappointing thing about our holiday was the weather
  • RUDOLPH ARNOLDUS MARIA BURGERS 03-27-2013 THE pool boys are very uninterested , because we are coming they have work not the opposite !!!
  • OLE ANDREAS RICHTER 03-27-2013 As expected,- high quality all over.
  • RORY PATRICK KELLEHER 03-21-2013 Despite the poor (not bad) weather we had a most enjoyable holiday. We would cosider the hotel to be the best 4* we have stayed in Spain.It would be our intention to visit Marbella again and stay in the el Fuerte as we enjoyed our first visit so much.
  • VSEVOLOD MARKOV 03-21-2013 Many thanks for warm greetings on my birthday! It is memorable.
  • DAVID THOMAS CHILTON 03-20-2013 We enjoyed staying with you and have no hesitation on our next Marbella visit to come again,well done !
  • PATRICK JOHN KIRBY (SHREWSBURY) 03-18-2013 Hotel is in perfect location.Staff friendly and helpful.Was surprised to find 10% tax added to bill. I feel that price quoted for room should be price you pay. Some of decor now looking a bit dated, but still looks smart
  • IAN PAUL TYTHERLEIGH 03-11-2013 The hotel was very nice. The view from the sea view room that we had booked was very good. I would especially like to thank the lady at reception (I think her name was vega) who was also very helpful and helped organise a hire car etc. I would also especially like to thank you for sending up the bottle of Cava on my wife''s birthday, which was great as the reason for the trip was to have a week''s holiday when it was my wife''s birthday.
  • ALBERT VAN STEK 03-07-2013 Quality is in general less then two yeard ago

  • EDWARD WILLIAM FRY 03-02-2013 My Husband and I have just visited your hotel for the fourth time and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is my favourite hotel and my top choice to celebrate my birthday.
  • NOEL HAYES 03-02-2013 "I would just like to state that I have rated everything ""as good as I expected"" because we have stayed in your hotel on a number of occasions and know exactly what to expect. In our view it is the best hotel in Marbella for the combination of quality and price. The staff are always extremely helpful and friendly, and we always feel very much at home when we stay there. "
  • LUC VAN DEN BOSSCHE 02-28-2013 "the lady at the reception showed us an exclusiv room with attica ..next time .. ;-)"
  • JULIE MARIE DAVIES 02-27-2013 There could have been more information about the hotel in the room, but didn''t cause any problems, just had to ask or look elsewhere....
  • MOHAMMAD KHALED 02-25-2013 Very good hotel with very good helpful people all over, especially the reception. thank you very much
  • DAN RUSSELL 02-25-2013 I had three phone calls and sent three e mails to try and make a specific request. I received a confirmation , but when I arrived found that my request was NOT available. The reception staff on my arrival kept me waiting for approx 20 mins and were not interested. I had eventually tried to book online as my phone calls remained unanswered. I booked a junior suite and was disappointed at the standard of fittings. In general I regret to say that we found some of the staff surly and not interested
  • DENIS MICHAEL MILLS 02-25-2013 Only two days but very good. Gonzales (sp?) on recption a delight to deal with.
  • CARINE FRIES 02-18-2013 Well situated and pleasant in low season.
  • MICHAEL WALTER ROXBURGH (Kidlington) 02-13-2013 Generally very pleased. However, having stayed in your hotel about 15 times, we find it very difficult to understand why we seem to be unable to get the bedroom we want. We feel we ought to be given a certain amount of preference for our loyalty, but we always now seem to have to bargain, and end up paying much more than we could really afford. For instance, we wanted 326 or 426, but since the Levante building was out of use, we were offered other side view rooms, but since we come to Malbella f
  • MARLENE ANN HOLE (Bristol) 02-13-2013 Excellent stay again everything was up to its usual high standard. Requested room 534 and we were allocated that room - amazing!
  • DAVID LEONARD WEST 02-12-2013 We enjoyed our stay very much. The only problem we encountered was with the key card which kept malfunctioning. We look forward to our next stay.
  • ARKADIY NIKOLAYCHUK 02-09-2013 great location, beautiful sea views, spacious balcony, where admiring the view, you can enjoy a glass of wine, that''s all I needed
  • MICHEL RENE BAUDOIN MARTENS 02-07-2013 Les lits pour 2personnes sont trop etit et un dommiec des roulettes c une tres tres mauvaises idees .le lit bouge tout seul et cela donne du vertige.
  • CLEVERSON JOSE GUSSO 02-07-2013 Perfect...
  • GILLIAN SALLY JONES 02-05-2013 We booked a double room with sea view through booking.com, but unfortunately we were allocated a twin room for my husband and I. Although we were offered an alternative, the room didn''t have the sea view we booked. we stayed before, booking online and didn''t have a problem so we were surprised when we were told a double room meant a twin room, and we should have booked a king size - perhaps you need to make that clearer online.

  • FAROUK YAHYA BADIE (SURREY) 01-15-2013 I have already written to the manager explaining about the disastrous nine nights we have spent at your hotel. The hotel was full of noisy ,drunken sport young people who disturbed us with the rest of the guests in the middle of the night. There were many guests complaining about this. Even the pool area was full of them shouting, laughing generating a lot of noise. I hope you can give my complaints some serious attention and try to compensate us for this horrible experience. we had stayed at y

  • JOHN MALONE 01-06-2013 We have been coming to the El Fuerte Marbella hotel for New Year for a number of years now as we love the location with its proximity to the beach and to the old town. We had requested a room that we have had before but the main part of the hotel was closed for refurbishment. However, we were given a room in the new part of the hotel and it was a beautiful room so we did feel that the hotel had taken care of our needs and we were very pleased. The staff are always very helpful and we will be b

My room this time wasvery small and really disappointing - I went down to reception on the night I checked in and complained and also the subsequent day - I was told that when I previously stayed I had been upgraded to a Jun

  • MARLENE ANN HOLE (Bristol) 10-14-2012 Only comment is to do with the reservation of sunbeds towels were on the beds before 8.00am and very often the people did not use the beds until after lunch. The place we stayed the following week the towels were removed after 1 hour and you had to pay to get more.
  • RONAN MARTIN MURRAY 10-14-2012 The hotel should be more focused on their repeat customers.I have visited the hotel with my family now for 6 years andthere is no priority given to us. I asked for room 537 but was not assigned it. If you are travelling internationally to stay in a hotel I would expect better service and more effort to be made with repeat customers particularly those thatare travelling each year from abroad. Next year I will again try and book /assign my rooms in advance and if they are not provided, I will not

Looking forward already to my next stay with yourselves.
  • JOHN ALEXANDER FRANCE 10-07-2012 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fuerte Marbella hotel. The hotel facillities and location are excellent and the staff very helpful and welcoming. Only adverse aspect was room (112) was noisy due to position above bar and some inconsiderate guests slamming room doors.Also complained to reception on rowdiness of a party of English business guests who arrived on Friday 28th Sept for what looked like a weekend conference.In my opinion the bar staff were over tolerant of this group who held a v
  • JEAN ROSS (LONGFIELD - KENT) 10-07-2012 Overall a good experience, again, however areas of improvement we suggest are:- 1) bathroom in need of updating and re-decoration (room 404) 2) sunbeds are particlarly uncomfortable. 3) people telephoning us via reception noted the phone was answered whereas on pevious occasions it went on hold - so this is an improvement.

We would recommend the hotel to our friends but would qualify that the hotel is old and it''s facilities are dated. The rooms are clean and well kept but the furnishingsand decor are ""tired"" and the concrete is spalling off fromthe balconies. The beds are very comfy but the towel quality is poor. The Staff are all very pleasant and helpful and acredit to the hotel. Yes we would come back again."

This is our first stay since 2009. The hamburger has been replaced by a veal burger that we tried and hated. We would love to see it again on our next visit. Aside from that, we enjoyed our stay greatly, as usual.

It was the worst room in a 4star hotel we have ever stayed in. Rooms like this one are only suitable for single travellers| However,we had to stay in this room on our first nightbut we got moved the next day to room 425 which was much larger and more comfortable. Superb loctaion and we really enjoyed our stay overall.
  • WILLIAM EWEN MACKENZIE 07-09-2012 You need to enforce your sunbed issues well documented on trip advisor. Either you ban pre booking of sunbeds ,in line with your signage on the sun terraces, or you allow the freefor all to continue.

  • irene westerberg 07-08-2012 The worst hotel I ever been to, the staff wasnt interested in the hotel guests, the reception at your Marbella hotel looks like check in desk at an airport. The hotel didnt have any personality at all. I would never recommend this hotel toanyone. As I go to Marbella every month and have to recommend hotels to business contacts, I surely know that I couldntrecommend this. The pool area didnt have any service at all, some of the chairs were broken. My room wasnt properly cleaned, there were some c

Whilst understanding that the hotel has to control costs the staff reductions in the bar (either could not get served or slow service) and reception (no one to answer the internal telephone) made a difference. Otherwise ALL staffwere excellent and tried to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

  • BARRY STEWART ELLIS (Beverley) 07-03-2012 "WE have stayed in the Fuerte Marbella on many occasions in the past. This year, because it will be our 40th Wedding Anniversary, we decided to return and stay in a Junior Suite. We were most disappointed to find that the suite was on the first floor, above the Bar Noble, and had a view of the roof of the swimming pool. Because of its situation I do not feelthat the room (114) justifies the extra cost of a Junior Suite.In fact, given that on two occasions we were unable to sleep beacuse of the n

  • HENRY IVAN GEORGE HAMMOND 07-02-2012 I have only one complaint namely the computer. Firstly likeevery other hotel one should be able to buy time and use itover so many nights. Not eg minimum of 30 min etc which must be used at one time. Also printer does not always work. Ithink you should up date the whole set up.Having a choice of Spanish ? English would be very helpful as well.
  • ANTONY PEIRS 07-01-2012 I think the fact that the kettle does not switch off automatically is dangerous. Going to the beach, you expect the sunloungers by the EL Fuerte restaurant would be free for hotel guests. Sadly this is not the case

  • EDMOND MICHAEL FOGARTY (LONDON) 07-01-2012 This was our third visit to your hotel, and we will come again. We did not appreciate having to leave our room at 12.00and having to shower etc in the gym area prior to departingat 16.00 having spent a large amount of our hard earned money in the hotel. Late check out, particularly as we informedyou of our departure deatils in advance, should have been arranged.
  • CELIA MARY LORD 07-01-2012 The Director and staff of the El Fuerte Marbella work very hard on behalf of the guests and are friendly and courteous under what is obviously a great deal of pressure. However, it is obvious from the conversation with other guests and noticing it ourselves that cutbacks have been made. Staff did seem pressurised, and this was obvious in the restaurant particularly where tables were often left uncleared and there was sometimes a very long wait for show cooking. This is still a very good quali

  • DAVID ARTHUR JENKINS 06-30-2012 We were annoyed with the service we received from your reception staff on the second day of our stay. We complained that there were no sun beds available around the pool. We askedif we could use the sun beds at the Beach Club at a reducedprice ( as we did last year at the Fuerte Mirimar ) but were told that it was not possible. In fact we were told to layon the sand . Your Reception staff were not interested
  • ELIZABETH MARY SMITH 06-29-2012 No reflection on the hotel staff all worked very hard perhaps the issue with service was more the fact that the hotel was very busy and the staff could not cope with such large numbers

  • THOMAS PETER ORMESHER 06-28-2012 very enjoyable stay.reception staff very helpful .food choice very good .one area that was a problem was the sunbeds ,people were reserving them well before the man arrived at thepool to hand out the towels ,there did not seem enough to go round.other than that very good indeed ,we will return.
  • LORRAINE HELEN LAING 06-28-2012 We checked our airport pick up time the day before we were due to leave and found that we were not on the list for pickup.

  • DONAL LINEHAN 06-21-2012 I feel the hotel is up to a good 3 star standard with some 4 star attributes. If the reception staff concentrated on dealing with the individual client as opposed to developing a discussion with the colleague they may get far more dealt with. Reception advised that they had arranged transport to collect me at Malaga airport, but this did not materialize even issuing an ID number. Hotel El Fuerte does not achieve to efficiency at reception expected from say Le Meridien hotel in France. Takes to l
  • STEFAN ZYGMUNT LANGNER (MARPLE BRIDGE) 06-20-2012 We have been coming to your hotel every year for over ten years and one of the most annoying issues is the lack of sunbeds. It is a very stressful free for all with sunbeds being reserved, but not used, from as early as 7am in the morning.You have put up signs in the pool area to discourage this, but there is no point in signs if you do not enforce the rule. What was most annoying, was asking your pool attendant for help to locate two beds and being told to get up at 8am inthe morning to reserve

The toilet is located under the sink which was very awkward. The shower curtain is outdated and made showering unpleasant. would suggest that You replace them with a shower door / Perspex. It would help modernisethe rooms. It was very difficult to get a sun lounger as many guests reserve the beds with towels but never use them which means that people

  • MARC BERNARD SHAW 06-02-2012 overall we enjoyed the week in the hotel. However, there were some negative points. Position of our room on the 5th floor was awful (room 546). The noise from the side street throughout the night meant we hardly got any sleep. I emailed the hotel before we arrived and asked that we did''nt have a side view room, yet we were still put in this room. The pool service was terrible. There was were no staff coming around offering food or drink while on our sunbeds. If this was the case, myself and my

This is a minor complaint as our overall stay was, as usual, wonderful. Thanks to all the staff for making it so.
  • MAREK WRONSKI 04-28-2012 Lovely location.However on the sun terrace areas there were never enough parasols per loungers. Many loungers were broken.
  • MALCOLM HOLLAND 04-28-2012 The lack of person available to take cases to our room on arrival. We thought the hotel was in a great location. Despite the signs, people were abusing the system for the Sun-beds, and all were taken pre-breakfast with towels etc. The hotel was always well presented and immaculate. We would certainly return. We would like to see an improvement to the Buffet/Food quality. (EVENING MEAL) considering the 4* rating.

The complimentary newspaper did not arrive on saturday and i had to get it from reception, the gift turned out to be a tiny box of moscatel grapes we are members of club de amigos and expect more from the fuerte. very disappointing.

There were no decorations or new year feeling and we were treated as ifan inconvenience. My suggestion would be that in future you only offer bed and breakfast or gala dinner on that day.

Four of us asked for pork for main course, one piece each, when cooked no larger than 5cm each. Same with vegetable portion. Is chef under instruction to serve small portions?

I think this is ridiculous as 12 noon is much too early check-out time in winter when the hotel is mot busy. Other hotels in Puerto Banus allow regular guests much more flexibility.

Whenever I stay in a 4* hotel, I expect the option of air con. If the weather is cold, it doesn''t get used, butlast week was hot enough to require it in my opinion. Having said that, I''ve already booked the hotel for our next tripin March 2012."

The Gymnasium is the best one we have encountered on many hotel stays. Thank You.
  • HARVEY MICHAEL LEE 09-21-2011 Hi - we were in room 103 - a nice and large room with very good views but: a) The air conditioning was ineffective. b) The beds were uncomfortable and so we could not sleep well. The main lounge/dancing area is in serious need of refurbishing.(including the outside window/door frames which are rotten) We like the hotel - it is well run and in a great position but at the price we paid it did not offer good value.

Also the bathrooms could definately do with an update. There are so many well kept, friendly hotels, at very reasonable prices, out their today Ithink the El-Furte needs to be careful to keep things up todate and not outprice

Its location is exceptional - being right on the beach so it has beautiful surroundings and near the old town. The breakfast buffet was amazing but our only stay in the hotel for an evening meal was disappointing. It was buffet style, good but not exceptional and expensive compared to all other meals eaten in Marbella. We found all staff in the hotel extremely friendly and helpful wi

Your guests let the towels lay on the chairs during the night so they were free in the next morning and they didn´t have to mark, which you are suppose to do...3. When you hire your beach spot out it was so much better. Conclusion: Not a huge issue, but on a vacationsunchairs always seems to be a problem.

We booked the holiday through Sovereign Holidaysbut there was no information book to give details of the resort or any excursions which would have made our visit to Marbella more informative.

  • CONSTANTIA HENDRIK M GEBRUERS 05-29-2011 The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. It was a pitty that there were works (constructions ?) going on , which caused noise around the swimming pool.
  • MICHAEL BRUCE CAMERON 05-29-2011
  • MARGARET ELIZABETH PEPPER (Harrogate) 05-29-2011 Disappointed about the noise and work at the Beach Club andalso near the pool and hotel, could this not have been donein the winter? Maybe you could warn guests about possible noise and work, it is not the first time we have experienced this One of our favourite things is eating outside at the Beach Club, luckily we ate there on our first day before the work started. It also meant great demand for a much smaller area of loungers, never easy at the best of times.
  • JAN FERNAND WYNDAELE 05-28-2011 During my stay constuction work using a pneumatic hammer was in progress beneath my window. The noise bothered me. I feel a hotel like yours should avoid this or warn guest in advance and suggest an alternative.
  • CATHERINE T KIERNAN 05-27-2011 this was our third stay at El Fuerte in Marberlla and it was the best. All the staff were extremely friendly and the srervicve was great. We as a group normally take 3 rooms andwe cant wait to return again next May. Ella O'Brien

  • PETER DAVID HAYDEN (ESSEX) 04-18-2011 Every day customers reserved sun beds from around 8.00am -9.00am and left towels on most beds so lots of people were unable to use the beds. This happened every day of our visit and by 11am there were not beds or chairs left around the pools but a large number of people had simply reserved them andwere not using them. Staff were asked by several people where they could sit and it was difficult to be accommodated. Some effort should be amde to rectify this as it is selfish and unreasonable behavi
  • PATRICK GERARD O MAHONY 04-18-2011 I loved your hotel and staff very good and helpful, will definately be back again, so any specials you may be running for the end of august, september please let us know... one big problem for us was that the sun loungers were gone every morning by the time we went out and sometimes we just went off to the beach because we could not get a seat. The towels were left there by some people from early morning and they did not use the beds till the afternoon... maybe you would payattention to that as

Wehave no hesitation booking your Hotel in future and will enthusiastically recommend it to family and friends.
  • MERRIK KAY BURRELL 04-13-2011 1. Details need attention. Our breakfast forgotten and thus1 hour late 10/4. 12/4 no juice or sugar for coffee. No breakfast order form in room. 2. Mess over account. I think we were charged 3 times for dinner, once in the HB rate, once in the 2 signed restaurant bills and again as two separate charges of #20. Sorted out, but unneccesary and time wasting for the reception staff. 3. However, we will come again BURRELL. 617, 3N 9/4 to 12/4.

Could the management post a notice in each room advising guests to respect the right to rest of their neighbours and keep the TV volume down after midnight? I had toget up early to work, and didn't feel too bright.
  • BRIAN EDWARD MILLIN JONES (NESTON) 02-24-2011 Excellent hotel. Positives:- All staff members very customer-orientated. Food quality/Choice very good. Room safe free of charge. Excellent room *108. Much appreciated fresh-squeezed orange juice at breakfast (Riu don't offer this) and cava. Negatives:- Hot food on dinner buffet not hot. Apart from Flamenco, live music was poor. 7 euros for a gin and tonicis robbery. I have placed an hotel review on TripAdvisor.

  • STEPHEN NEIL BLACK 02-22-2011 Food was often not very warm from the buffet area. This is why we did not have any meals in the evenings, other than the first night This meal, again a buffet was almost cold andthe overall cost of 70 Euros we felt high for a this style and standard of

  • CLAIRE RANKIN (Coín) 02-13-2011 I do think that closing the pool area on a weekend at 18:00is too early and due to this time, I didn't get to use the pool.

  • MACHIEL WESTERLAKEN 02-06-2011 The first night we were in a far too small room ( by the way at the same price as the room we were moved to the next day.That's why the management kindly moved us to room 502. Next time we expect to be in a similar room as in # 502 and not on the 2nd floor,where it is impossible to move around

  • GERALDINE MC CARTHY 01-30-2011 The Restaurant Manager came out to my daughter to offer mydaughter a sandwich or something he treated her like a 12 year old.. she is 23 years old not a child. His attitude was appaling. But the Hotel Manager was extremely nice and helpful. It upset me
  • CAROL ANN MATTHEWS (BOLTON- LANCASHIRE) 01-30-2011 Your hotel is the best that I have ever stayed at and I have travelled the world with work staying at top hotels.

  • DAVID MORRIS A (ST ANDREWS) 01-17-2011 Used to stay every year with you until statrted receiving offers from Guadalpin Hotel. Stayed there last two years, good but not in same clas as El Fuerte. The evening dinner buffet was brillient and the Chef (Mon - Fri) excellent. The morning chefs excellent as well. Bar service also excellent but 8 euros for a glass of rum excessive, especially seeing the low cost of Bacardi etc in Spain. Also my suggestion wold be to charge everyone say an extra 2 euros and give free parking to residents as
  • SANDRA NORMA LEVETT 01-14-2011 new years eve dissapointment. we did not have reservation in restuarant we were told there was no seating available in the bar. considering we stayed for 5 nights and had a 90 year old lady with us this was rather dissapointing.

  • ROBERT NIGEL JEFFREY BARNES 01-11-2011 Lovely view from room. Bed very comfortable. Would not normally choose a buffet evening meal but the quality of the food was excellent as was the breakfast. The only comment I would make is that the waiters did not give enough time to choose from the wine list. Would come back again if visiting Marbella.
  • NORMAN SHARP (Dunfermline) 01-11-2011 We have stayed in the El Fuerte many times. We have often felt it is an expensive hotel but the location and the friendliness of the staff are what make us want to come back again and again. It is lovely when the staff recognise us. We feel the parking charge is unfair for residents like us who have stayed 3 times in the last year and also it would be nice touch to provide slippers in the rooms. Thank You - Norman Sharp
  • MIPHAEL COHEN (MIDDLETON) 01-10-2011 For us, el Fuerte is the best hotel in Marbella, with excellent standards in a good position near the sea and the old town.
