Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Fuerte Miramar Marbella
Have just returned from a wonderful 10 days in the Miramar Spa. The location is ideal for the old town. Some of the previous comments are fair enough - the staff arent the friendliest in the world but were never rude in fairness to them. The most irritating thing about them is their snail pace (a simple salad lunch can take over an hour - most of that time just waiting for the bill). Gina who runs the boutique is a great character and some of the clothes & handbags she has are well worth checking out!! Our room was lovely. We were supposed to have a "standard room without view" but we were given one overlooking the beach and marina - all for 79 Euro per night, room only. It was fab sitting out there in the morning and as the sun came down in the evening watching all the beautiful cabin cruisers and speed boats coming back in. The room was spacious, beds were comfortable, bathroom was spotless, mini bar was pretty well stocked although get bottled water elsewhere as the bottles in the mini bar are tiny and with the heat we were flying through them. (There's a supermarket a couple of minutes walk away on the corner with the same group's El Fuerte hotel called Open Cor). We only ate lunch in the hotel which was alright - burger and chips; spaghetti with tomato sauce and the likes. There are buckets of restaurants in Marbella and they all open late. The food in The Orange Tree restaurant just off Orange Square is super and is run by Frank & Irene who are fantastic hosts. The MC Café in the Marbella Club Hotel is terrific. For pretty good fish, there's Varadero near the marina & we found a really nice Italian restaurant called Valentino down on the Paseo Maritimo. Will definitely go back to Marbella and this is the place we'll be staying!
Recently stayed at the Mirimar Spa, excellent hotel. Wonderful location, staff very helpful, great amenaties, GREAT location!
I recently stayed at the Hotel Fuerte Miramar Spa and while the hotel itself was ok, I was very disappointed at the hotel staff. I had put my diamond earrings on my nightstand and came back from lunch to find that one earring was missing. I immediately notified the staff (assuming that the housekeeping had moved my things) and was ignored until 2 days later when obviously my earring was long gone. Although it was my mistake to assume that their staff wouldn't move my stuff all over the room, I was very disappointed with their lack of attentiveness to this serious issue.
Other than this issue, the spa was OK. The location is good. The rooms are average, nothing special.
Great location, good stay
We stayed here 1 night, May 7, 2004. We booked it for its location and decent price ($210/night US). It was a nice boutique hotel. It had all the amentities, nice bathroom, and fun looking bar. I did notice some grossness on the box spring that I won't specify. The staff was friendly and all things were seamless.
We had a hard time finding the hotel. The roads are pretty crazy. When we went looking for restaurants, we just walked along the beach and there were a TON of choices.
We also went to a Casino that was 12 Euros away. It wasn't very big and you can't wear tennis shoes or jeans.
Email if you have any questions.
Above average but...
Very friendly staff, nice rooms but overall standard was only average for a 4-star hotel. The food was good but very unimaginative other than the meats. OK for short stays but I would think the menu would drag a bit after that. Not very good menu for veggies. However location excellent for old town centre, beach etc.
Great for a short break
We stayed 4 nights in mid-October 2003, selecting on the basis of location, facilities and relative price compared to other hotels on the internet. We were not dissappointed! Located within 500m of the charming old town of Marbella, and also within easy walking distance of a wide variety of restaurants/ cafes along the promenade. Breakfast provides excellent variety and enough to keep you going for most of the day. We ate out for the rest of the time, apart from one pool-side snack lunch which was completely satisfactory. Very friendly & informative staff, rooms extremely comfortable and very good views from balcony (we were 'side-sea'). Would definitely recommend; you might have to pay substantially more elsewhere to improve on the standards here.
Great location, Great staff, Great Hotel!
I stayed at this hotel in late August of this year for one week. As soon as you arrive you are greeted by friendly helpful staff. The rooms are very spacious, much bigger than needed. Our room was the closest one to the sea and the views were lovely. We stayed by the pool area during the day as the sea was too cold. Drinks were brought to you by the poolside by the waiters. One fault that we did have was the food was not of a high standard. The breakfast was not with fruit looking like it had come from tins. The lunch in the poolside restaurant was ok. I had fish once and it wasnt cooked properly, it was still raw in some parts. Every evening we went out for our meal so we do not know what the evenign meal is like. The hotel bar is very cosy and relaxing.
We totally enjoyed our stay here and plan to come back next year.
A nice place in most everyway. Staff was very helpful except for the check in clerk who made us wait 10 minutes or more while she finished a phone call that she answered while we were at the desk. That got us off on the wrong foot. Other that that really enjoyed it. Great beach, great buffet (35 Euros each), great breakfast (incl).
The Hotel is new, clean and full of great staff. We had to wait a couple of hours to check in, so were upgraded to a suiteIt really is right on the beach, and has the classic mountain view behind.The spa was quite expensive, but there were a few decent deals.The breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts i have had.
Loved the Position
Recently built, this modern hotel provides very comfortable rooms. During our stay we were very impressed with the special evening offering an excellent buffet with three large separate "food counters." These were also put to full use at breakfast. One even provided a chef cooking the breakfast of your choice while you waited.We didn't take advantage of the Spa facilities that are available but I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

... nature called so in we went.
Once inside on deck 14 we were greeted by a blast of airconditioning….SO COLD after the balmy evening stroll. We got to the men’s room and saw that someone was about to exit (the door was moving and the handle turned…but nothing), so we waited. Nothing happened. SO….Christopher opened the door and to our surprise was a man walking into his reflection in the wall mirror placed by ...
Leaving the coastline of the Mediterranean, we gained altitude rather quickly. The views were beautiful -- and admittedly, it was nice to be out of the large city! We wound our way up the mountain road, and in no time we were coming into Ronda. Like Granada, Ronda has an old city and a new city. The old city streets are very small, windy, and not really designed for the automobile! Finding parking in these small towns can be challenging to ...
... arch – quite cool. The tile work on the ceilings is beautiful as is the detailing around each window. The ruins are in fairly decent shape for having been "rebuilt" by the Moors in the 11th, & 14th Century. We walked a lot but not all the way to the top of the mountain to the castle Gibralfaro (too hot, no shade). For both of us – it is ALL about the shade. No tree, no shade.
... off his horse by a bull, they used to just do it on horse back but after “Frankie” the new way took off and his son developed the cape stuff and all that ***** in 1785 when the local bullring was opened. They still have bull fights, why it's called a “bull fight” is beyond me as the feckin bull ain’t fighting , and they still kill the bulls.....mind you I’d like to see one but we missed the next one in Malaga by a ...
... a campsite plan and told to choose our pitch from the few available ones. So we found one with as little shade as we could in order to feel the sun's rays - the camp is under pine trees which screen the pitches from the baking summer sun. We didn't need that Spanish electric adaptor that Rob bought this morning - the English one fits quite well.
Once settled, some lunch and several cuppas later we went to ...
