“good holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

my partner and i and our friend , stayed at the greigo for 10 days, from the 16 of october.
the food was good, the rooms very clean , the staff very helpfull , i feel its worthy of a 4 star, i only have 2 complaints . its not fair for people to put towels on sunbeds early in the morning and not returning till midday. also a cut off time for kids on the dance floor as the adults would like to dance but kids stopping it, apart from that , we got more than we paid for, also our friend had a birthday and they gave her a cake . lovely touch
many thanks for a good holiday best wishes clive and eileen

Dear Clive and Eileen, many thanks for sharing your holiday experience of the Marconfort Griego Hotel here on Trip Advisor. We are pleased that you all enjoyed your holiday with us and apreciated the services which we offer. It is indeed unfair that people do still see the need to 'reserve' sunbeds, even in the winter period. We are pleased you found our Hotel to be value for money and that we were able to make your friend's birthday celebration that little bit more special. Best wishes to you both and we look forward to welcoming you back on a future occasion.

lovely friendly hotel. have been back 3 times now twice with my family and once i took my friends for a 50th birthday. entertainment every night with different shows and silly funny games. bar staff lovely and friendly. restaurant average but for what we paid we cant complain. food different every night. well worth a visit but dont expect 5 star as it is only 3 star but a good 3 star. would recomend it to any 1 who is not fussy or stuck up! will be going again in february...

Thank you very much for your review of our Marconfort Griego Hotel. It gives us great pleasure to learn that even after three visits to our Hotel we still meet the mark. As you say, we are a typical 3 star hotel in the centre of Torremolinos, but what makes us special is the friendliness of our staff and the quality of our services. See you again in February !

just spent a nice break at the Greigo Mar. Rooms are basic but clean, just what you would expect from a 3star hotel. All staff from reception to barstaff were pleasent. The food was good always something on the menu for everyone. The entertainment was adequate although if we were travelling with young children I would have been disappointed as it was aimed at adults especially in the evenings.
if there was a negative to the greigo Mar it would be the last couple of days of our holiday when the number of spanish guests increased, the entertainmnets staff always spoke in both spanish and english , however during the evenings entertainment the banter between the spanish guests and the spanish entertainments staff increased and on these occasions the conversations were not repeated in english which made us feel like we were invading someone elses party!!
i would recommend the hotel.

Dear Lindsay, many thanks for your review here on Trip Advisor. We are pleased that you had a nice brak with us and found our staff to helpful and pleasant. Our entertainment team Jessica and Sergio really do hard job at keeping everyone entertained, sometimes in difficult circumstances. Also I might add that during the summer months we have our Kids Klub, Mini Disco and Childrens Entertainer specifically to keep the little ones entertained. Once again, thanks for your review and hopefully we'll see you again on a future occasion.

do not go here! as soon as i got there i knew it wasnt going to be a good place,misserable and aggressive reception staff.got to room and was it was clean but very old fashioned and balcony was facing a block off flats.hotel full ov spanish guests who shout at each other and are just basically rude i.e.push in front ov u in a queue the restaraunt is a nightmare the noise of waiters slaming plates and cutlery around is deafening! food is all for spanish guests an cold an meats i wouldnt give to my dog full ov bones and fat ate out most ov the time.and were all in THE ONLY PLUS was the bar staff friendly and very buisy big queues again.

the room was basic and toilet ran all night like a bath being run once flushed probably have a better sleep in a local hospital had no air con and on second day it leaked all over the floor reported it twice and they finally fixed it leaking and it must ov been a problem as cieling was patched with filler all over place.was told we could move room next day so told friendley reception staff wed be out till afternoon no problem they said so went back he said we couldnt move should have went in morning because hotel was full and the cleaner wasnt available to change sheets as he was goona stick some1 else in there very aggressive and argumentative and got security guard with trunchen out standidng behind me never seen that in a hotel before.

My 2 freinds and I arrived here on 16th Oct for 10 days...we didnt expect frills but were pleasantly suprised at the effort made by this hotel to make our holiday memorable! The all inclusive WAS as it said, including free bottles of water each day which would have added considerable cost to the holiday. Free bags of crisps also a nice gesture! The staff were happy to oblige and were very friendly. Yes it is a bit frayed at the edges in decor...but for an inexpensive autumn break was perfect! The food was plentiful a quite varied with Roast meats at the carvery...and the fresh baked bread was a delight! Yes on a hot day there wasnt much room around the pool,but we found the rooftop sunbathing area very pleasant and sunny all day! A nice stroll took us to the main shops and down to the sea...a 50 cent lift can bring the weary back up the hill again! Only thing that really annoyed me was the noise between room walls. I had a single room and the gent behing my wall had the loudest snore in Spain,also I had to climb over my bed to get onto my balcony, but i did have very nice view of mountains to compensate! Cant blame the hotel for the rotten weather at the end of our stay....so will give this hotel a 7!

Room Tip: Pool or mountain view

Many thanks for sharing your holiday experience of the Marconfort Griego Hotel with other Trip Avisor users. We are thrilled that you and your friends had a great holiday at our hotel and that you all enjoyed the wide selection of foods which we have to offer in our resturant. As you say, the All Inclusive option is a real money saver (especially for famalies with kids) and we are pleased that you and your friends enjoyed our All Inclusive service. Unfortunately, at this time of the year, the swimming pool area does go into the shade quite early, however, you found our rooftop sunbating area where the sun shines all day (well, if it is sunny, that is... sorry about the bad weather at the end of your stay). Thanks again for your review and hopefully we'll see you again in the not too distant future.

Just got back from 6days at the Griego Mar,it was a treat for my 50th birthday, it was fantastic, really clean hotel, rooms cleaned everday, towels changed, staff really friendly and pleasant, food was amazing, something different every nite, just one thing some parents let there kids run wild & I think one of the bars should be adults only, will defineltly be going back and will recommended it to other people.

Daughter booked this hotel on a last min thing for her and me all inclusive. Looked at some of the reviews and was worried sick as some were not great so was not looking forward to it at all. Well what a relief when we got there! Absolutely fantastic. Food was varied and plentiful and the staff were brilliant. A special mention for the head waiter as he was always wonderfully polite and helpful but really all the staff worked tirelessly to make the holiday great. Entertainment was a bit hit and miss but we had some really great nights within the week best of all was the 'You Bet' night, Whitney has framed the certificate! For the best sun use the roof but downside for that is that it is a long way to the pool! Overall a really fantastic place and we can't wait to go back. A huge thank you to all the staff..Wonderful x

Room Tip: High floor with pool view and on the 'sunnyside'
