“Great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Stayed for a Birthday long weekend (9th feb/12th feb).If we ever go back to Torremolinos we would be mad not to book back into this Hotel.Location 5mins from train station,4stops from Airport.We went Half board,Breakfast/dinner.Restaurant kept very clean and very well stocked with plenty of choice.We were given a very good room facing the pool(908).got the sun during the day.Downside for some was the very slippery reception floor.We spoke to two people who had slipped over and ended up with broken bones.

Room Tip: Rooms on the resturant block.

Dear Aronna, firstly, all be it belated, a very happy birthday and thank you for choosing our Marconfort Griego Hotel to celebrate your long birthday weekend. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us from the cleanliness of the hotel, friendliness of our staff and the variety of foods which we have to offer in our Restaurant. Guests' on Half Board are not tied to breakfast and evening meal, guests's can also choose breakfast and lunch allowing more flexability for those wanting to dine out in an evening or celebrate a special occasion. Unfortunately marble floors can be slippery and there are various signs around the hotel indicating this and that guests' should wear footware at all times. We only have knowledge of one unfortunate gentleman who slipped while walking around our reception in his socks, fortunately we were told that he had not broken anything.

Went in Feb 2013 4 adults The hotel is large 2 buildings kept spotless clean and rooms were cleaned daily. Plenty of space in bedrooms with ensuite facilities. At least 3 bars serving good booze on AI basis fast and friendly bar staff. Reception large also with friendly receptionist. Food was excellent with a good choice. Only one downside i could see was the outdoor pool it was nice area but was in the shade most of afternoon not a prob in feb but summertime a bit of a let down for sun worshipers. Overall this is a nice good hotel and we would go back there.

We are so pleased that yo and your friends enjoyed your recent stay with us and thank you for reviewing our Marconfort Griego Hotel here on Trip Advisor. Our cleaning staff, bar staff and indeed all departments work very hard to ensure that our guests' have a great holiday. Unfortunately, during the winter months our pool area is in the shade during the afternoon, however this is quite the reverse during the summer months where finding a shady spot is sometimes difficult. Once again, many thanks for a great review and we look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

We stayed for just 3 days on a short break with a group of friends. From check-in to check-out everything was fine. Our room on the 3rd floor was very clean, well furnished, clean linen and towels. I think the bathroom had been refurbished. Pool view. The food was very good, a varied choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The all inclusive drinks selection was good too. You could buy branded spirits for 1euro15cents, very cheap. The bar service was very good, (hello to Pedro and Cecilia) who always had a smile. The entertainment was ok. There are several bars and seating areas if you do not want to be entertained. Only downside is, there are only two lifts, we used the stairs going down and lift going up. Yes, I would return, not in peak season as I think it would be rather hectic. A brilliant weekend was had by all of our group.

Room Tip: Higher floors give you a better view. Lower floors if you use the stairs (only two lifts)

Thank you very much for taking your time to write a review of your recent short break with us here at the Marconfort Griego Hotel. We are pleased that you found our hotel excellent value for money and enjoyed the services which we have to offer in our restaurant and bars. As you rightly state, guests' on an All Inclusive basis can obtain branded spirits at half price, we are indeed one of the few All Inclsuive hotels that offer this option. I have passed on your comments to our bar staff, especially Pedro and Cecilia who you mention, who work incredibly hard and always manage to have a smile. Hopefully we'll see you and the group again for another Excellent Value holiday.

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.
