The clean and well-decorated bathrooms are fitted with a bathtub equipped with a flexible shower hose and a shower curtain, a separate toilet and bidet, a make-up mirror, a hair-dryer and toiletries. Room service is available from 8:00am to 11:00pm.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The Fuerte Rompido, part of the Andalusian Fuerte Hoteles hotel group, is ideally nestled at the heart of a vast marsh nature reserve ("marismas" means swamp in Spanish). A two-storey building with local architecture houses the 298 guest rooms of this hotel built in 2005. The lobby is a bit noisy with many echoes, but it is still charming with its fountain in the middle and a bay window where you can catch a view of the sea in the distance. Open from 10:00am to 7:00pm, the swimming pool area is comprised of three pools! A large 1m80 deep bean-shaped pool equipped with a water slide, a second smaller circular 1.60m deep pool and a separate small 40cm deep pool for children, plus a free cold jacuzzi. The resort affords a beautiful view over the marina, the lighthouse, the Rio Piedras and the sea. Towels are provided directly on-site at booths. The sun lounge area is furnished with green deckchairs, beige canvas parasols, Balinese beds, showers and toilets. The complex is integrated in a nice flowery garden lined with palm trees and numerous lawn areas, spread across several levels. These levels mean there are lots of steps which create a certain charm, but the establishment is definitely not recommended for people with disabilities. The games room has a large flat-screen television. Children have a superb kids club with a ball pool and a playground.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The dining room of the main restaurant, El Olivo, can seat up to 440 guest. Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 11:00am, lunch from 1:00pm till 3:30pm, and dinner from 8:00pm till 10:30pm. Here guests can enjoy local and international cuisine served in buffet style and featuring show cooking. For breakfast guests can feast on omelettes with bacon, pancakes, pastries and fruits galore. You can even sit out on the terrace, sheltered by a glazed window overlooking the sea. However, when it comes to the orange juice, you'll have to make do with the powdered version. The layout of the tables is standard refectory style with little privacy. However, you don't have to queue for the buffets! Guests can also choose to eat at the Beach Club Grill restaurant, which, unlike its name suggests, is not at the beach (just over a mile away) but by the pool, which is not so bad. It features a terrace as well and serves la carte specialities of rice and fish. Thirsty? Head to the Noble bar from 11:00am to half past midnight. Here there is a stage for performances, a large flat-screen TV and a terrace with a sea view. It can seat up to 410 people.

    Spa 7.7 /10

    Open from 10:00am to 2:00pm and from 4:00pm to 7:00pm, the spa uses the prestigious Catalan cosmetics brand Natura Bisse. This wellness centre includes a heated indoor pool with a thermal circuit, waterfalls, hydromassage jets, three water beds and a hot tub, four massage rooms, a shingle path for feet massages, sensation showers, a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. A hairdresser and beauty salon complements the complex.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    To access the beach of Nueva Umbria, you have to cross the Piedras River by boat (10 minutes, it's free). This huge 7.5-mile long beach of fine clear sand is equipped with deckchairs and parasols available to rent. It is in fact an offshore ribbon of wild dunes between the Piedras River and the Atlantic Ocean. The tranquillity of the place is only disturbed by the seagulls and ocean waves. You have to walk a bit to reach the water! A parasailing tour provides an opportunity to admire this beautiful landscape from a height of 150 metres: thrills guaranteed!

    To know

    Note there is no ATM at the El Rompido: you'll have to go to Cartaya, 5 miles away. The area is not served directly by an airport. Guests have to land in Faro (Portugal) or in Seville, a 1h15 and 1h30 drive away respectively. There are no guests rooms adapted for disabled guests. To access the beach of Nueva Umbria, you have to cross the Piedras River by boat (10 minutes, it's free). Beware, the boats are only operational from April to October, and depart every half an hour. With two 18-hole golf courses, this hotel is ideal for top golfers and novices! Golf lovers will be delighted by the swamp landscape of the protected nature reserve which is perfect for beautiful strolls. The Wi-Fi Internet access is free, even in the guest rooms, and a computer is available for guests to use in the lobby, although you will have to pay to use it. The outdoor car park is free for guests. A water park and a go-kart track are located just over a mile from the resort. The Fuerte Rompido has an environmentally-friendly approach with recycling bins almost everywhere.
