4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Food good. Accomadtion was just ok as the hotel itself could do with a lick of paint. Poolside was too small for the size of the hotel and they could do with more space around the pool and more sunbeds. Would go back here again as we have been here 3 times over the years

Dear Louise, Fortunately your opinions of our Marconfort Griego Hotel are not common amongst the majority of reviews here on Trip Advisor, nor indeed are they those expressed within our own internal guest satisfaction programme, however, we respect your own personal opinion.

we arrived the last week in june in the mid evening just in time to get a meal after a decent flight from the UK. The reception staff were fine and we duly donned the all inclusive band and the evening meal was lovely and quiet and the food was nice. That was the last quiet meal we had all week. The noise in this restaurant was unreal. They had slop bins all around the place. the staff were banging plates and scraping them right next to us when trying to eat and relax. Breakfast was mayhem just total mayhem. Getting a sunbed was a fight every time, so we gave up and thought lets relax in the garden-- no garden only concrete . The building is now showing its age, lots of broken tiles, paint mismatched, the room was clean but cheap in appearance, the balcony area was dirty and weather worn, rusty metalwork and dirty dividing partitions. Getting a beverage or a cool drink was like queuing at cinema for a box office hit. never enough staff on duty. only place to get a drink during the day was the pool bar, the other bar was closed. a poll light had come adrift and was floating in the pool on the end of its cable. never repaired. This hotel was used by elderly Spanish as well which is fine, its their country. I have never met such a pushy bunch of rude people in all my life and loud. Torremelinos is in need of a massive face lift it is a poor resort and lacks charm. The hotel griego Mar is in a position which does not afford an easy reach of the beach, down hill and up hill coming back. I would rate this hotel a 1 star for its appearance, 2 star for its service, 3 star for the food quality , 1 star for its location and cannot recommend this hotel for anything but people who need to have a pool and all inclusive but beware you will tire of this very quickly. The evening entertainment is ok after a few beers but during the day the activities are rubbish and mediocre. if you get a few days of bad weather you are stuffed.

Stayed at this hotel start of July for 10 days. We arrived late on the 1st day around 11 oclock I requested bottom floor as I have a 2 year old in a buggy and my mother has terrible bother with her back....we got 5th floor facing on to a noisy car park I didnt bother complaining that night as we where tired and hungry. We went down stairs to snack bar well that was awful it was all the left overs from lunch and dinner. We then went on to get a drink from the bar which we where then told in 15mins u have to pay. What???? We payed all inclusive so I thought that ment All Inclusive. Inclusive finishes at 12. So after reading reveiws I had to set an alarm for 7 every morning to get 3 chairs a table and a stand for the unberella then stay there untill 9 to get beds and unberella now this was always a fight with the Spanish as they had their big lay ons till 11 o'clock they though it was ok to take things from other people. I didnt go on holiday to get up early and then argue. The entertainment at the pool through the day has alot to be desired especially when this hotel has to cater for english no english visiors. Entertainment at night was pathetic ave definitely stayed in better hotels. We spent most of our time at the reception In the evenings as it was handy to the bar and the air con was good. The rooms are so tiny couldnt swing a cat. The bathroom are so unsafe as my toddler banged her head 3 times at the sink. All in all I will never ever stay at this hotel again nor will any1 else I know for that matter. Ps there is no rep so if u are looking for days out etc you will have to find out on ur own what to do. I hope people listen to this reveiw as I normally give bad reveiws a chance but this time it was probably the worst decision I have ever made.

Very good family friendly resort style hotel. Large capacity with more than enough to accomodate. Great for young teenagers etc. Lots of bars in the hotel, pool very large. Food is brilliant. Onky downside is the distance from the beach but cheap taxis are available.

I stayed here with my friend from 6-13th July 2014. I am 19 and she is 23. We came for a girls holiday as we had read that Torremolinos was good for nightlife. When we arrived at the hotel we realised that it was very family orientated, it might sound stupid but we hadn't realised this from some of the reviews that we had read.

The hotel was nice considering it is a three star, I was unsure what to expect as I have only stayed in four or five star hotels before. If you don't go to the hotel with expectations of a four or five star hotel then you won't be disappointed. The reception staff were very friendly and made us laugh, they were very helpful and always happy to help. The hotel was also very clean and the staff work very hard. We stayed on the 5th floor, the lifts are small but we only used them for going up and took the stairs down.

The food was alright, breakfast was the nicest, lunch and dinner were ok, there was something different for lunch and dinner but some foods were repetitive each night. They have a good range of drinks. The snack bar is open after dinner in case you get hungry later on, there is always crisps, biscuits and ice creams available.

We watched the entertainment on the first night whilst we pre drank at the hotel, it was mainly good for the children but the adults got involved too. During the day there are some pool activities such as aqua aerobics and games.

The pool area is small, however we managed to get sun beds every day in a good spot, the sun beds are not unchained until 9, not 8 like some of the reviews on here say so. We would wake up at 8:45, go down and be able to get a bed. Some of the reviews say people get up ridiculously early but this is unnecessary. There is also a free shuttle bus that stops outside of the hotel that takes you to and from the beach if you don't fancy staying by the pool.

If you want to come to this area for night life I would recommend getting a hotel in Benalmadena. We asked the reception staff where to go for nightlife they suggested either Los Alamos or Benalmadena, both are 10euros in a taxi. The first night we tried Los Alamos there were only 2 clubs which weren't the best as it was quite quiet. For the rest of the week we went into Benalmadena to the 24 hour square, I would recommend going here instead of Los Alamos as it was a lot more lively and we had a great time! If you do decide to stay here for a nightlife holiday I would recommend buying a cheap bottle of vodka to pre drink in your room as the all inclusive drinks aren't very strong.

Overall, the hotel is good value for money, there are loads of shops that are only a short walk away. People complain about the Spanish guests being rude, this may be true but it really doesn't affect your stay, let them do whatever they want to.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view, we didn't but we wished we had done.

Dear Eilis, we are so pleased that you and your friend enjoyed your recent stay with us at our Marconfort Griego Hotel. As so rightly state in your review, we are a three star hotel and considered by many to be one of the better three star hotels in Torremolinos. Both Torremolinos and indeed our hotel cater for a wide range of people, from couples to families end especially at this time of year, with the children having broken up from school, there are indeed many families staying with us. 24 hour square, located just on the outskirts of Torremolinos and Benalmadena is the favourite with many of our younger guests and attracts guests from both Torremolinos and Benalmadena, glad you ladies found it and enjoyed your evenings. Thank you once again for your review and hopefully we will have the pleasure of your company on a future occasion for another good value for money holiday.

Generally ok hotel. The pool was too small for the size of hotel. The entertainment was better than some hotels but the best thing was the food!! It is probably the best food we have had in any of the hotels we have stayed in!!
