“Great Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Found the Griego Mar a great place to stay for for a winter break. Rooms are clean and adequately furnished. The restaurant is to a good standard and has a good variety of food, Vegetarians dishes are very nice.
Only downsides were the antiquated TV in room and a free wifi service that was at best barely adequate

Room Tip: Stayed in room 911 south facing. Balcony great for sun bathing (south facing)

Thank you Dave for sharing your holiday experience of our hotel with other Trip Advisor users. We are ineed very pleased that you enjoyed your winter break with us and that you enjoyed the great selection of food in our Restaurant, including our Vegetarian Buffet. We are in the process of replacing the televisions in the rooms with flat screen tv's mounted on the wall, however, having 414 rooms this will take a little time. Unfortunately, since we started our free WiFi service and with the increased number of people that travel with smart phones and personal computers, sometimes the WiFi signal drops due to saturation. This occasionally happens in our Reception area, however WiFi is also available in our Salon Picasso just above reception and is normally more stable. Thank you once again for your review.

I have been staying at this hotel since it was the El Griego, then the Griego Mar and most recently the Marconfort Griego Mar. It is what it is. It makes no wild and un attainable attempts to lure you with its facilities but the returning trade says it all about this very comfortable, town centre hotel. It s only a few minutes walk from the centre of Torremolinos and about 5 minutes walk with your cases from the Renfe railway that brings you from the airport for only about £1.20. (Don't fall for your travel agents £17 transfer charge)
Yes it is lively at times, yes it is used by a lot of Spanish and yes it can be busy at times but these are only benefits to this hotel. The staff are polite, professional and very efficient. The hotel is clean, well run and maintained. The breakfast is far superior to another 4* hotel I have stayed in in the town although can be a bit of a bun fight at times at busy periods.
For the price you pay you will be hard pressed to get a better deal in Torremolinos and for this reason alone it gets a five star rating. Well done.

Thank you very much Len for your splendid review of our Marconfort Griego Hotel. Like yourself, we have many many guests' who return year after year and sometimes twice or even three times in the same year, and it is always great to welcome both old and new faces alike. As you rightly say "It is what it is", we are a three star hotel in the centre of Torremolinos, close to all local amenities and public transport and only 1km from the beach. However, I think what sets us apart is that we are constantly recommended as a a very friendly and value for money hotel. We are pleased that you have returned year after year and look forward so welcoming you back for many years to come.

I tried to write this last summer, but couldn't get trip adviser to work, hence a late review! Hotel was large and very, very busy, but the staff coped brilliantly and any queues were very short. We went on an all inclusive basis, and the standard of the food and drink was very high for the price. The rooms were clean and comfortable, although not much in the way of views! The beach was just a short walk away (although a lot of steps, so probably not good if you have buggies or wheel chairs). However, there was also a courtesy bus from the hotel several times a day. The beach was much nicer than I expected - very clean, with toilets, showers, life-guards and all the water sports you could imagine - great for the kids. The only downside for me, was the extremely crowded pool area, and the fact that the pool was in the shade from 3 pm. We worked round this by going to the pool in morning, then having lunch about 3pm and then walking down to the beach for the afternoon. All in all, good value for money.

Many thanks Helen for persevering with Trip Advisor so that you could share your holiday experience of last year with others. The Marconfort Griego Hotel is about 1km from the beach, however it is a pleasant stroll down the main shopping street 'San Miguel' lined with many shops, bars and restaurants and as you say the beach is really beautiful. We are pleased that you found our hotel to be of a high standard and that you enjoyed your stay with us last year, hopefully we'll have the pleasure of seeing you again this year.
