Reviewed 10 May 2014

We stayed in a deluxe sea view room. We were on the ground floor which meant we stepped out onto our private terrace straight into the gardens with fabulous views of the sea. The receptionist were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel reception is large, airy in Moroccan style. We were the only English couple staying at the hotel. The catering staff spoke to us in German until they realised, then they spoke to us in Spanish. Our Spanish couldn't of been that bad! Breakfast was very good, there was a huge variety with everybody catered for. The Cava was a lovely touch. We had dinner twice in the hotel which was buffet. You could choose a cut of meat and have it freshly cooked. The entertainment was typically Spanish and well worth watching. The bar staff were very efficient, they remembered our round from day one. The grounds are clean and well kept. The beach is a 5 min walk away. There are few bars and restaurant locally or a 10 min walk into Conil. We would stay at the Fuerte again.

Stayed here for 4 nights just before Easter. Not sure if all rooms have been refurbished, but ours had been, and it was lovely. We stayed B&B and paid around €110 per night which we felt to be good value. The hotel had a luxurious feel to it, breakfast was very nice. Had lunch one day but found it overpriced, €11 for a sandwich, would recommend eating elsewhere if on B&B.

The pool area was deserted the first few days we were there. Pools were heated I think, but too cold for our 5 year old, so we made use of the indoor pool which was very warm. There was kids club 10 - 1 and 15:30 - 17:30, our son went in a couple of times to do some colouring, and we were welcome to stay with him if we wanted to. There was a mix of nationalities, our son was the only English child, I would say 90% of guests were Spanish, with a few Germans.

There were around 80 steps down to a beautiful beach, with a nice restaurant, La Ola where we had a nice meal one evening. The town of Conil was around 10 minutes walk, either along the beach or through a park with a playground. A lovely town, lots of narrow little streets, and tapas bars.

Overall, a great place for a holiday, would certainly recommend, and hope to visit again.

We have stayed at this hotel the past 3 years, and each year, it has steadily gone downhill.
The old towels need to be replaced. There are Very few bathroom amenities (only a bar of soap and shower gel, no shampoo, conditioner, lotion, cotton...). There aren't any bathrobes or slippers. The equipment in the gym is broken or do not work properly. The food is over-priced and is generally bad (the eggs in the morning are cold, the pasta is dried out, the buffet dinner costs €26 per person and does not include even water...). The in-room safe costs €3.25 per day. The wifi is free, but does not work very well in the rooms.
For a 4 star hotel, these issues are unacceptable, especially if you compare this hotel to other 4 star hotels in Conil.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled on business

Dear Sir,

First of all thank you very much for your comment at Tripadvisor.

Your opinion is very important for us to could improve our services.

We want to inform you, that our reception has amenities, bathrobes or slippers available and you can ask for them at any time.

Concerning the gym in our Costa Luz part, this is the first comment that we receive. We are considering to refurbish the gym, but the one in the Fuerte Conil area.

We are very surprised about your comments about the food, because most of our guests are very happy with our buffet. The eggs were prepared at the moment in our show kitchen, so I’m surprised that they were cold.

We are also really sorry about your problems with the wifi, in this case we could have sent our technician to look after it.

Unfortunately we did not knew about your haplessly, if so we would have done everything to correct your concerns mentioned.

We really regret, that you did not enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to have the opportunity to receive you again in our hotel to show you that we make an effort to offer the best service as possible.

Best regards,

We are a family of 4 with two young children (2 and 4) and really enjoyed are stay in this Resort-Hotel. The rooms are comfortable, ours had a little balcony overlooking the ocean and the gardens. There are several swimming pools for all ages, most of them heated so the kids really loved it. The breakfast buffet was great, the food was fresh and you had lots to choose from. The diner buffet was surprisingly good given it's a resort and the food usually is bland, it was not the case. The children loved the kids club and the little show at night, they even set up a big kids table and overlook the children's meal, after which, if you want, they walk them to the kids club for a movie night. The beach is beautiful, not too windy, with vigilance everywhere. There are lots of small restaurants and chiringitos around to chose from. We are definitely going back

After seeing the great Trip Adviser reviews, we arrived there late In September. With two children it was definitely the wrong time of year to visit the resort. While the resort was full it was eerily quiet, lots of guests in their 50s, sitting in silence around the pool reading books. If you are looking for a very quiet (i.e. silent) environment you will love it. The facilities are great with a lot of out door (and two indoor pools) to choose from, and 5 min walk to the beach. Unfortunately the outdoor pools don't open until 11am which we thought very late for a resort. We also made use of the under ground car park - it is secure and comes at an extra cost (as does the room safe). Apart from the pools and beach, the activities for our children aged 7 and 10 were limited. The kids club was not an option for us given that the staff at Conil Fuerte did not speak English (and there were no other kids at the resort). For these reasons we left a day earlier than planned. The staff were very friendly - we particularly appreciated the humor of the waiting staff.
Overall, nice facilities with friendly (non English speaking) staff, but definitely not somewhere you would want to take a family in September.

Dear customer,

Thanks a lot for your review on tripadvisor.

We're glad to know that you enjoyed our facilities, location and especially the treatment received by our staff.

Regarding to your comment about the children's activities, I´d like to explain that the reason for that, is that like other hotels resorts, now is low season and we don´t have any chidren. And now, the activities for them are limited only at weekends.

And about the languages, the most of our staff, especially at the reception desk and entertainment department, as well as other languages ​​such as German, they speak English.

We hope to see you again in a future, maybe in summer time!

Kind regards for all the family

We have used the Hotel Fuerte every year for long Weekends as we used to live in Spain for six years. The service at the Hotel is absolutely outstanding and the Breakfast and Evening Buffets are excellent. All the staff can speak several languages and are very very helpful. Cannot fault this Hotel at all. Great Place for Singles, Couples and Families.
