Privileged location

Just in the centre of town

Located just 5 minutes from the centre of Marbella’s old town and a stone’s throw from a wide range of restaurants and shops, El Fuerte Marbella offers guests a highly convenient location where the most important attractions are nearby without giving up the peaceful and calm atmosphere of an urban beach hotel featuring spacious communal areas and the highest quality service dedicated to those guests who seek the ultimate comfortable luxury to look after their health, beauty and wellness.

El Puerto Deportivo, where Marbella’s bustling nightlife can be found, is extremely close to our hotel, as is the historic old town which boasts charming lanes filled with shops, the renowned Plaza de los Naranjos square and the Iglesia de la Encarnación church.

At the cutting edge of tradition

Inspired by the warm breeze felt along the coast of Andalusia as it comes in from the Strait of Gibraltar, Levante is centred on healthy cuisine which adapts to the products used and the time of day that the dishes are prepared.

The restaurant’s trendy dishes, which use seasonal ingredients sourced from the local area, join the range of international dishes already on offer. On top of this, the restaurant’s different pop-up spaces offer unique proposals in differing settings, adding value and taking the guest’s experience to the next level.

Enjoy specialty coffee

Sitting down to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee is by no means an ordinary moment. It represents a ritual that provides a momento of peace, calm and reflection. It can also represent sharing ideas, smiles and making plans. That’s why enjoying a good cup of coffee shouldn’t be treated as an insignificant part of our routines.

Prestigious barista Adrián Fernández created a specialty blend just for El Fuerte Marbella which is drawn from different origins, ensuring that the coffee’s aroma, the notes it gives off and the making of the coffee itself become a ritual in their own right, giving us the opportunity to appreciate the intricate culture of this ancestral drink. Welcome to Qahwa, our space dedicated to coffee.

Much more than a buffet

Our Selected guests enjoy exceptional service at Le Marché, where the traditional buffet transforms into an exclusive experience featuring table service and the option of a personalised à la carte menu for breakfast and dinner.

A new take on the existing gastronomic proposal which includes special guest recommendations directly from the chefs and cooks, a kitchen inside the dining room itself and a clear distinction when it comes to service.
