“Nice hotel with great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

The location overlooks the sea and a boat is available to take you to the beach. Service was good . Found eating on site a bit limited particularly at lunch time however the food we did eat on site was good. Room we had was very good with side view balcony with a great vista of the sea and the surrounding area. Facilities were good also and we had an enjoyable few days.

Room Tip: We had a side sea view room and was worth the extra cost

We stayed for two weeks in this hotel. On the first night we noticed hundreds of ants all over the floor. This was reported to reception in the morning and also to the girl cleaning our room. Despite asking many times to have our room treated for this infestation of ants it was NOT done. The rug in our room was ripped at the edges and when we lifted the edge, under the carpet was filthy dirty, crawling with ants, and had not been cleaned for many months. What can I say except no one listened or even cared. The staff in hotel were very good and the gardens were kept in excellent condition. The dining room was always very under staffed at breakfast and especially at dinner. At the Gala dinner it was complete chaos with the staff on duty unable to cope with the number of guests attending. For some reason the management were unable to have more staff. Guests had to clean dirty dishes etc from the tables before they sat down. A total farce and the chefs, waiters, and even the manager agreed and apologised for a very poor evening. Not a good experience.

Just home from a lovely stay here in Hotel Fuerte, and my partner and I agree that we would definitely choose here to stay again!
Initially there was a major set back as we had just arrived at 1am after a delayed flight, only to be told they had no record of a reservation for us. Luckily, lovely Sergio the night porter immediately found us a room and told us not to worry, to sleep well, and someone else would talk to us the following morning. We were given a twin room, but at 1 in the morning I didn't care as long as it was comfy! The next morning we returned to reception and spoke to Macarena, who apologised for the mix-up and told us that the online (external) reservation company had cancelled our reservation a week previously, unbeknownst to the two of us. Thankfully, she understood completely and even upgraded us to a sea view room! Gorgeous!
After staying in two different rooms, I can confirm that they are spacious, comfortable and immaculate.

We got breakfast every morning in the Olivia Restaurant, absolutely gorgeous with a station set up where the chef makes omelettes, crepes and pancakes fresh to order. There is a choice between indoor seating and outdoor seating with a lovely view of the pool and grounds, I'd recommend sitting outdoors to add to that lovely holiday feeling!
The pool was quite busy two days and less so the remainder of our stay, but there was plenty of space and sun loungers available regardless of busy-ness. There are two outdoor adult pools, 1 outdoor kiddy pool, a jacuzzi, two water slides (which are great fun, even for adults!), an indoor pool and a spa. Spoilt for choice!
There are plenty of restaurants in the surrounding area, just get a local map from reception which outlines them all, I would definitely recommend La Espuela Grill just up the road in the grounds of another hotel, they do lovely steaks and cocktails for good prices. Because of all the choice, we didn't eat dinner in the hotel, so I can't speak for the evening meals there.

The location of El Rompido was beautiful also, far enough away from raucous British and Irish holiday towns but close enough to larger towns that if you did crave a Big Mac, it's not a million miles away! Thankfully El Rompido and the Hotel Fuerte are well signposted as Google Maps had us going through roundabouts that didn't exist!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone; young and old couples, families, golfers, luxury spa weekenders, and I would bet that a wedding in this hotel would be absolutely beautiful!
We will definitely consider staying here again, thanks so much to everyone here for making it a wonderful relaxing holiday!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors to get the best view possible!

this was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Friendly and helpful staff, Room very comfortable, high standard of cleanliness, with view of golf course. Wifi in room, and something we haven"t come across in Spanish hotels...English tv , great to get programmes not just BBC world. Excellent choice of food. Beautifl grounds. Area around pool very nice with a degree of privacy behind the hedges. Short walk to harbour where boat (free ticket from hotel) took us to the beach. Can"t wait to return. The only minor moan was the noise from the lawn mowers on the golf course

Junior Suite 6067 (21 Aug-26 Aug), comfortable room for a 4 member family (2 kids using the sofa bed).
This time we reserved room and breakfast, to enjoy the lunch and dinner by around the area (El Rompido, El Portil, Punta Umbria, etc). Many types of restaurants: seafood (crab, camaron, prawns, etc), fried fish, meat... good meal.
For us, the hotel is a reference of quality excellence: Nice pool with saline chlorination water; A good variety of activities; a full breakfast (pancakes, fruits, coffee, bread, sausages, eggs, etc); Free tickets for the beach boat; etc.
The employees work very well by attending the customer expectation.
Some minor details to be improved but not a problem.
We return, sure.

I stayed here with my husband in September 2012. The hotel was perfect for switching off in the sun. It sits at the top of a small, steep hill beside a picturesque lighthouse and protected park. The wi-if signal is excellent; we even had a signal beside the pool (near the snack bar). It gets very busy at the weekend with Spanish families. There is a fantastic selection at the buffet for breakfast (even champagne). We never used the indoor pool, but it looked a good option if the weather isn't so good.

Loads of seafood restaurants in the town down the hill - they do get a bit repetitive after a while but there is a also nice pizzeria in town. Don't waste your time with the sports bar - awful food and didn't put on the match we asked for (but the hotel did show it).

El Rompido is a lovely relaxing place to stay and meander around. There's a small supermarket beside the hotel and you can put purchases into your fridge. The coffee shop in this small shopping area has a beautiful view of the sea and park.

Third and last time at Fuerte, our room had cobwebs and dead mosquitos on walls, had not been painted for years. The food was not as good , but staff as usual A1.Location is great , July is very bad for mossis, can't escape them and we all were bitten dozens of times.

Bye Bye Fuerte.

I have been very pleased having attended personally to the hotel and tell the whole hotel is painted completely every year. (It is possible that the mosquito was wall previous days).

We hope to see you soon and to offer the services that meet your needs.
