A real oasis of tranquillity set in the midst of popular Marbella, Fuerte Marbella invites you on a relaxing holiday in sizzling Costa del Sol. Boasting a marvellous beachfront location, yet being really close to the historic quarter, the hotel's position allows for easy exploration of all the best of the area. So, not only is the golden beach right at your doorsteps, but Marbella old town is only a 5-minute walk away - no matter if you are after bronze tan or getting your cultural fix, you are in for a treat.

Great location aside, Fuerte Marbella also has a range of 4-star facilities to boast with. Two outdoor swimming pools are among the stars of the shows here - while one of them (the West Pool) offers splendid views of the sea, the other one (East Pool) is uncovered in summer, but heated and covered during winter. What is more, both of the pools are surrounded by a gorgeous sun terrace with comfy deck chairs taking your sunbathing experience up a notch.

Fuerte Marbella offers a great selection of dining options, too. Among the highlights are Beach Club Restaurant Grill and Restaurante El Olivo both serving delicious classic Mediterranean dishes. After sampling all the great food here (and in the surrounding restaurants) you might want to burn off the calories - the hotel's gym is perfect for that.

Offering spacious, elegantly decorated rooms, Fuerte Marbella promises to provide for a very pleasant stay in one of Spain's most popular resorts. Ideal for anyone from singletons to couples to families, the hotel boasts relaxing ambiance and one of the best locations in the region!

Situated 25 miles (40km) southwest of Malaga, the few miles of coast between Marbella and Puerto Banus is Spain's answer to Monte Carlo. Spain's elite, and Britain's more successful felons, have flashy holiday homes in the surrounding hills, and swanky yachts in the marina. Marbella is the Costa del Sol's best quality holiday resort - the restaurants and bars are more stylish (and expensive) and the town has been spared the worst excesses of concrete development that have blighted neighbours such as Torremolinos.

The old town of Marbella is hidden away and retains some of its medieval charm, and has some good clothes shops and restaurants. The more exclusive Puerto Banus, six miles (10km) to the west, is where you will find the casino and the seriously large yachts. Those holiday visitors who drive just a few miles inland, to the villages in the hills around Ronda, will discover a Spain completely untouched by tourism with village markets and tapas bars to be explored.


There is a casino, mega-bowling hall and go-kart track close to town, while the Crocodile Park and Fuengirola Zoo are a short drive away. Local flamenco shows are also fun.


Eating out in Marbella tends to be pricey although there are plenty of good value fish and chips venues around the sea-front promenade. Beach bars offer good pub grub and excellent views at sunset. Tapas is always a good bet, as is the local fish, particularly in paella. Avoid eating the widely touted Chanquetes - tiny, deep-fried baby fish - which are endangered.


Marbella's best bars are Ana Marias, La Notte Piano Bar and Stones Music Bar. Clubs worth trying while on holiday in Marbella are the legendary Nikki Beach, long-standing favourite Dreamers Disco, Suite del Mar and Olivia Valere. Dress codes are the norm in Marbella, and entrance fees often higher than those of Madrid and Barcelona. The Golden Mile in Marbella is the place to be seen and tourists in Marbella should expect to rub shoulders with the rich and famous including many well-known celebrities and even members of the Saudi royal family.


The best shopping is at the markets, which are a focal point of local life. Marbella has a good Monday market at Recinto Ferial de Arroyo Primero, and an antiques market on Fridays in the old town. Good buys in Marbella include Moorish pottery, copies of designer clothing, and Andalucian crafts such as shirts and leather shoes. Tourists should expect to bargain hard on all items from fresh produce to Spanish tourist souvenirs and clothing.


Marbella can be expensive when compared to smaller towns on the coast; it has also grown into a busy and modern place, with little of the old world charm that attracted many visitors here twenty years ago.
