“Cannot wait to return in April”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I cannot believe the bad reviews! I have stayed here 3 times and have booked again for April. I have stayed with my young children and also in a group of ladies with ages ranging from 18 to 75 and I have never had cause to complain. The service and food is really good as is the location. The beach is a walk but go via the shops and cobbled streets and it's exceptionally pleasant. I agree that there are sometimes stag and hen parties and that it can be uncomfortable when with your children but these instances are few and far between and have always been handled well by staff. When booking remember you are booking 3 star budget hotel but it far exceeds some of the 4 stars I have stayed in which cost treble the price! Please try this hotel, I know I will enjoy my stay in April and look forward to booking again, as I know I will.

this hotel did not live up to its reputation.the hotel staff had a couldn,t care less attitude unless you were spanish. ther was only one bar open during the day ,this was filled with drunken men on a stag party making so much noise and acting stupid they drove everybody else out.the food was boring and always cold the chef cooked hamburgers chips and pizza every day.we didn,t sleep all week because drunks were shouting to each other at 5oclock in the morning nobody told them to stop .we felt unwelcome in the salon bar the entertainment team made sure the spanish had a good time,overall i would not stay in this hotel again and wouldn,t recommend it to couples or families

I am indeed very sorry that our Marconfort Griego Hotel did not live up to your expectations. All our staff aim to provide a profesional and friendly service and as you will see from previous reviews I think we achieve this. Apart from the hamburgers, chips and piiza you refer to in your review, you omit to mention the wide selection of other foods which our chef prepares fresh each day on our "show cooking" buffet, including pork loin, tuna fish steaks, beef strips and vegetables, chicken fillets, grilled cod, chicken fillets, Spanish chorizos, etc. I am sorry that you felt 'excluded' from our entertainment and activities and felt that you could not join in along with all the other nationalties. Thank you for taking time to leave your review.

Stayed in the Griego mar for 10 nights late June first week July 2012. We are a couple with a ten year old daughter. Cannot fault this hotel at all for value ie: price. The rooms were functional and cleaned daily. We enjoyed the all inclusive aspect the best. All beverages alcohol or non alcohol were of the highest standard. The signature of this hotel, however, is the quality, choice and variation of food available especially in the evening. Absolutely fantastic and something for everyone. Watch and try to get down for your evening meal early to avoid the queues at between 8 - 9 pm. Shower did not work second day, phoned reception and it was fixed right away. The pool terrace area is only slightly smaller than it should be for the size of this hotel (this is one busy big hotel) so if we could not get a lounger we simply got a table and chairs for tanning. This hotel was excellent for meeting new friends with families whereby my daughter made pals with at least 6 girls of similar age with british/ irish nationality. There was very professional and varied entertainment every night on the stage at the pool/ bar area. Mums and Dads were well catered for here but, more importantly, our daughter had a ball - meeting and playing with new friends mesmerised by the shows every night. Credit to the management and staff for our wonderful stay. Will be back.

Room Tip: Two blocks west and east, choose the eastern one with non pool view. Very quiet, no noise

Thank you very much for sharing your holiday experience at our Marconfort Griego Hotel with other Trip Advisor users. We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your holiday with us last year and that you are considering returning in the future. June, July and August are always busy months and in addition to our pool terrace we also have a small relaxing terrace (where games are not allowed) just above the restaurant. Great tip about eating early in the restaurant, especially during the busy months, anytime before 8pm when the restaurant is quiet. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the choice, variation and quality of the foods which we offer in our restaurant and the beverages that we offer in our bars. Jessica and Sergio work really hard to keep everyone entertained from the little ones to the not so little ones and we are pleased that you enjoyed our shows and audience participation games and that your daughter made new friends. Thank you for your great recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the not too distant future.

Went there 8 years ago as all inclusive and quiet enjoyed the hotel facillities which was part of reason to revisit. This visit we went with friends on B& B basis . Breakfast was quiet nice and plenty of choice but if a cooked breakfast is chose it soon goes cold as plates are not warmed . Hotel close to shops and bars Rooms are basic but when on holiday you dont want to spend it in your room . Our room floor wasnt very clean as there were clumps of fluff swept into the corners . Lifts are not very big as we 4 just managed to get in with our cases . On our arrival reception never pointed us in any direction to lift and just told us what floor we were on . Would i go to this hotel again , Very doubtful ....

Dear June, many thanks for taking your time to write a review of your recent visit to our Marconfort Griego Hotel. I am indeed very sorry that we did not live up to your expectations upon your second visit after 8 years. Although plates are placed on our buffet during all the services in our restaurant we also have a plate warmer just at the side of the buffet with a sign indicating the availability of hot plates. Please accept my apologies for our reception not indicating to you correcly the location of your room, I will personally follow this up with our reception manager.

We had a great week at the Marconfort Griego Mar Hotel, the food was superb, there was plenty of choice, there was always something different to eat, to dishes every mealtime cooked by the chefs on the griddles, as well as the usual cooked goods. The Bread ovens with warn fresh baked bread is a superb idea. The first room we had was on the first floor overlooking the pool, we asked to be moved and there was no problem with this, we had to wait until the next day as the hotel was full, but went down after breakfast and changed no problems at all, as previous reviewers have put about the lifts, this can be a problems at times but there is a trade off if you want a high room, just gives you some exercise to work of the pounds you put on, really great touch allowing crisps at the bar and ice creams and ice pops as part as the all inclusive, the staff were really welcoming and friendly, when we arrived and went to our room there was a maid doing the rooms (not ours as was done) and said if you need extra pillows or anything just ask(superb). We have traveled extensively and the food in this hotel is one of the best we have come across. There are plenty of places throughout the hotel for people to go and get drinks, unlike other hotels where there is only one bar i can honestly say i never waited more than 3 or 4 minutes for a drink, the entertainment was good, all though in the evening where the entertainment was it got very busy with people jostling for a good seat. Go and give it a go i'm sure you wont regret it, we had a great time and may be back in October, thank you Greigo Mar for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: As for a high room in the block that is left of the pool, sun there all day long on your balcony
