Turre, Spain3 contributions1 helpful vote
Due to Covid, our booking had been cancelled 4 times and the hotel has only just reopened. The staff were excellent, particularly reception staff who responded quickly to requests. The breakfast was excellent and very well organised in a covid secure environment. This iconic hotel is perfectly located on the seafront of Marbella, but it’s the well trained staff that make it a special place to stay.

My family and I have just returned from the Fuerte Hotel in Marbella so visited during COVID. We were very impressed by how the staff looked after us and felt quite safe throughout. Also what was hugely impressive was how we were treated by every single member of staff reflecting the fact that this is a family run hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and we were always acknowledged by staff members regardless of seniority. The rooms were comfortable and well serviced with balconies that provided a great seaview even though billed as side seaview. The breakfast buffet was extensive and always fresh and appealing. Fabio runs a tight ship! We’re sorry to hear they must close for now but hope they can reopen for Christmas and stay open. I would not hesitate to return.

After 1,5 year we returned to this hotel. Staff was again very friendly and helpful. The last time we had a room with frontal seaview and the room was a bit better. Balcony from the room with lateral seaview are smaller, but it didn't bother us because we spent most of our time outside the hotel or in the garden of the hotel. Even in this difficult corona times we felt appreciated as guests. It still is a hotel with a beautiful first line sea location. We will surely visit it again !

Thank you Fuerte Marbella, you managed to again provide us with am excellent vacation, despite the different set-up now coping with C19 restrictions and safety precautions. We did like that it was not so crowded, but we especially like the always fantastic and warm welcome, support and excellent service., we felt that you have found a good balance between service and safety. Special thanks to senor Amores, who just provides that extra which makes a difference, looking forward to seeing you again, Sorry to hear that the renovation had to be postponed, but glad that we then can be back at Easter 2021.
