We booked this hotel on the recommendation of a work colleague. Over the years we have stayed in various hotels of this category all over the Costa del Sol, where you felt as if they were doing you a favour by your staying there and didn't seem too bothered whether you came back or not. We were very pleasantly surprised at the level of courtesy and service we received, all the staff, without exception, went out of their way to be helpful and make us welcome. It was refreshing to receive some so-called old fashioned service, and with a smile too.
Although a modern hotel, we liked the traditional style of decor and the feeling of space and tranquility. At check-in, which was quick and efficient, we asked for and received a quiet room at the back overlooking the lawn. The room was spacious with a flatscreen TV with Sky & BBC channels and a mini bar, although was half empty on arrival; guess would have to request it being stocked if required. The bathroom was likewise spacious and impeccably clean as was the rest of the hotel including public areas and restrooms. The room safe was the best ever encountered, card operated, no need to punch in codes.
The hotel is arranged in two phases, the Fuerte Conil and the Fuerte Costa Luz, both interconnected with mature gardens and swimming pools. Guests have access to all the amenities of both hotels and both are equally attractive in their own way.
The swimming pools were particularly attractive in that there were not hundreds of sun loungers side by side as in other hotels, rather they were arranged on lawns on different levels, so you could find your own ideal quiet spot if you so desired. There were pools for little ones as well as for adults.
Night entertainment was excellent, with some very professional artists. Regarding the food, we take this very seriously and we found the quality and variety very impressive, freshly cooked in front of you as well as an extensive buffet to suit all tastes.
On the first evening at dinner we must have detained one of the waitresses a little too long with a question because we noticed the Maitre di’ subsequently speaking with her to find out if there was problem. Within ten minutes, a very pleasant young lady called Maria from Customer Relations was at our table to satisfy any queries we may have had. It was only out of interest we asked a question, but it gave us confidence that had we had a real problem or been unhappy with something, it would have been addressed immediately.
Our compliments to the hotel management for a very well run hotel. Will we return? Most definitely, yes!
