“Really good All inclusive hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Just got back this morning from this hotel.
Really good value for money holiday. Food and drink could not fault it, fresh hot bread and pizza freshly baked.
Down fall the swimming pool area, everyone is crammed in like sardines in a tin, beds so hard you could not use them and the pool only had steps you had to climb down to get in. Spent most of our time down on the beach.
Really strange hotel as there were loads and loads of stag and hen parties, then you had loads of families with small children. I think this hotel should either be advertised as an adult holiday, or then again change to family holidays. We spoke to several groups that were on Stag and Hen parties and they too were really shocked with the mixture of people, saying that everyone was so well behaved while we were there.
Only ones to look out for are the Spanish that stay at this hotel, they seem to take over and push in front of you wherever you go.
The staff working around the hotel was really pleasant, but that could not be said for the ones on reception, who was not at all helpful

Thank you Sue for taking a few minutes of your time by writing a review of your recent stay with us at our Marconfort Griego Hotel. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday with us and found our hotel and all inclusive service provided good value for money. Our Marconfort Griego Hotel appeals to all ages, family compositions and nationalities, however we are predominantly a family hotel, however at certain times of the year we have sporting groups, golfers, OAP's and occasionally 'individual' reservations who turn out to be a 'same-sex' group, however, as you state in your review everyone is well behaved and has a good time. Please accept our apologies for any problems you may have encountered with our reception, your comments have been passed onto our Reception Manager. Thank you once again for your comments and hopefully we'll have the pleasure of welcoming you back on a future occasion.

travelled here last summer three adults and child hotel was central location clean staff friendly and helpful rooms were basic and beds not very comfy but were clean and meeted our needs. reception and foyer area was gorgeous. bar was good service late night club was fun too. food was good something for everyone pizzas were made up and guy was happy to make pizza of individual choice which was fantastic for me as I love pizza but am allergic to tomato base he was only happy to accommodate. entertainment was varied every night with lots to occupy kids. nice pool get down early for sun loungers. lots to do outwith hotel water park a must. buses around are very cheap. great holiday. if ever returned to would consider stay in hotel again dont see need for negative reviews.

Thank you very much Jo for your sterling review of our Marconfort Griego Hotel. We so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your holiday with us and found that our hotel provided all you wanted for your family holiday and provided good value for money. Our Show Cooking grill has become very popular and although we have a selection of freshly prepared pizzas available, we are only too happy to prepare individual pizzas for those who have a special dietary request. As you state in your review, our hotel is centrally located for all public transport with easy and cheap access to other resorts along the Costa Del Sol. In addition the Crocodile Park and Aquapark are literally behind the hotel about 10 minutes walk away. Thank you once again for your review and hopefully we'll see you again for another 'good value for money' holiday.

Stayed here for 5 nights on half board. Most people seemed to be on all inclusive but glad we were not. Drinks were reasonably priced. We had room overlooking pool which was fine. Carpets in corridors tired and could do with replacing. Buffets for breakfast and evening meal were basic and lacking in choice but ok for what we paid. Only saw evening entertainment couple nights suppose it was ok for free.
Only 5 minutes from train station so handy for commuting to airport. Some people have said area was bit shady but we had no problems at all and would possibly stay there again

Dear Janet, thank you for taking a few minutes of your time to share your opinion of our Marconfort Griego Hotel. Our Marconfort Griego Hotel provides bed and breakfast, half board, full board and All Inclusive options for out guests, with the All Inclusive option being the most popular these days, however guests on a half board basis like yourselves have the option of choosing either lunch or evening meal. We are indeed very sorry that you found problems with the cleanliness of the carpets in the corridors, in the interim, this has been passed onto housekeeping department however there is already plans to change these for next year. Thank you for your comments and hopefully we will see you again on a future occasion.

Just got back from a wonderful week staying at the Griego Hotel. Through unforseen circumstances, I ended up holidaying alone. As a woman I was slightly nervous about this. I needn't have worried - the hotel, staff, facilities etc. were marvellous and I cannot praise this place highly enough. The Deputy Manager Carl (from Yorkshire originally) was particularly helpful to me. Such a great friendly guy who ensured that everything ran smoothly - nothing was too much trouble for him. All the staff are so friendly and happy (a sign of a well run hotel I think). Pedro in the bar is an excellent example of this. He seems to remember everyone's face and makes them feel so welcome. Food was exceptionally good. They cater for vegetarians and dietary requirements too. Room was great and everywhere was clean. The terrace and pool area were regularly cleaned and checked and a lifeguard always on duty.

To sum it up - I will definitely be returning here and recommending to all my friends. Such good value - couldn't ask for anything more.

Dear Debbie, it was indeed a pleasure to see you again and even though we have many guests pass though our hotel during the year, many of them remembered you from your last visit. Thank you very much for your first class review, we're so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday with us and found all our staff to be as happy and friendly as on previous occasions. We look very much forward to seeing you, and perhaps your friends, in the not too distant future. Thanks once again for your review.

Thank you very much for taking a few minutes to write a review of your second holiday with us here in Torremolinos at our Marconfort Griego Hotel. We are so pleased to learn that once again you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us. Great tip about using the train service from Malaga Airport, it's about a fifth of the price of a taxi, the trains run every 20 minutes and the train station in Torremolinos is about a five minute walk from the hotel.

Just returned from a weeks all inclusive stay with my 2 boys (5 and 10) and a friend. What can I say - the hotel was a great little find. Rooms were small and basic but we only used them for sleeping so serviced out needs. They were spotlessly clean and we had maid service daily. Hotel facilities were good. Lots of bars, places to sit and have a drink. Games room and free wifi in places.
Food was great and plentiful. My boys particularly liked the pizza bar and didn't go hungry once. We enjoyed the variety of food on offer and the quality was excellent. There was a snack bar available after dinner in the evening which proved to be very useful if you had a late check in like us!!
Sun beds were very difficult to come by, however this is no different to any other hotel I have stayed in throughout Spain, Greece, Turkey, Mexico !!! However when we were at the pool we sat on the terrace and chilled out while the kids played in the pool. We then went off to the beach!!
All in all we had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. I would really be struggling to find a negative, particularly considering its a 3 star hotel and we got such a bargain ! I think this hotel definitely deserves a 5 star review!!!

Just got back today from staying 4 nights on a All inclusive at Griego, Hotel is great for a 3 star, Rooms are clean and basic,Food is very nice, Plenty of choice.....and for anybody to actually write on here that the food is Bland, are either stuck up or are comparing to 5 star hotels. All inclusive drinks are good, And yes if you want Budweiser etc you have to pay, so 1 bottle of Budweiser is 1.5 Euro which is good, Staff where always friendly and helpful, There are 4 bars in the hotel...pool side bar.....a lobby bar...a bar for entertainment, which is great for kids but lacking for adults.....then last is the late bar, which is ok i guess with mixed music till late.1 minor point would be the pool area is cramped with to many sun loungers and people sticking towels down very early. and yes later in the day, the pool area does get over shadowed and you may have to move to keep sunbathing, but this will maybe be later in the afternoon....Another minor would be the lifts are real slow and are always really busy! WIFI is not the best if i'm honest, But there are 2 computers you can use in the lobby! So if you want a decent clean Hotel, Good food/Drink and ya bedding changed daily, then this is ideal place to go to, And don't be put off by any negative comments, So big thanks to all the staff at this Hotel, Big thanks to Pedro and the bar staff :)

Room Tip: Get a room higher up!!!
