On the whole it was ok, dont think i would go back as there are better hotels available.
I was in a wheelchair at the time (with a broken foot) and getting in and out of the small lifts seemed to take most of the day!
the food was ok sometimes, but after a few days we mostly ate out at night.
the entertainment was poor and as the pool was freezing it was hard to keep the children from being bored.
The best thing was the staff who were great and nothing was to much trouble.
the room was very basic, no tea or coffee making facilities, however the bathroom was good and the room was kept very clean.
it was about a twenty minute walk to the beach down quite a steep hill, there was a lift but it was out of order which meant i could not get down.
To sum up then average is the best i can give it.

Room Tip: The lower down the better too avoid the lifts.

This hotel has had a massive revamp and looks smart but I didn't like it or much enjoy myself here. I thought the building itself and the attached blocks which were part of the hotel to be rather ugly. Another reviewer described it as being Benidorm-ish and I would agree with this.
Here are some thoughts:-
On the bad side:-
1. The lifts are too small and too slow, we were on the 7th floor and often, after waiting for ages, took the stairs.
2. The hotel caters mainly for Spanish clientele and when we were there it was mostly Spanish OAPs. I was told that the Spanish Government pay for their OAPs to have a week's holiday every year and it seemed they were all at this hotel.
3. The restaurant reminded me of a Bhs one on a bad day. There were loads of work stations throughout the restaurant where the waiters / waitresses would take diners plates after they had finished their meal, there was a hole in the work station for the waste food to go down and the waiter / waitress would bang the plates so as to empty the contents down the hole, .. this banging was loud and awful and ongoing throughout your mealtime.
4. There was no music in the restaurant which, I think, always adds a little something in atmosphere.
5. The sunbeds were uncomfortable - they were just plain white plastic and no sort of cushion was available to put on them.
6. There were no sun umbrellas.
7. There was no music around the pool area which, again, always adds atmosphere.
On the plus side:-
1. The room was OK, clean and bright and the bathroom was nice.
2. The staff were nice, (although the receptionists were a bit surly).
3. Food not bad.

Room Tip: Get a room (with a pool view) on a low floor so not dependent on the lifts.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a group of around 50 on a trip. We stayed for a week at the Marconfort Griego and all I can say is that it is very average and reminds me a lot of Benidorm. Its nothing special and very like an ordinary hotel. I stayed in a room on the 4th floor and 3 of us were sharing the room. I was very small and the air con didn't work. The safe also didn't work. The view was overlooking the main road and some shops.
There are two restaurants and one was far better than the other. I would recommend eating in the Giaconda Restaurant at lunchtime as it is far less busy and the food is much nicer. The main restaurant was always packed (mainly with older Spanish locals) who were rude and pushed in the queues most of the time. The food was very poor, the pasta was covered in water and the pasta sauce was more like soup. Breakfast was alright but still wasn't 'four star' standard.
On the positive side the hotel was very clean and the maids cleaned our room very well.
If you want a nice family break I wouldn't recommend staying here as its not the type of hotel I would stay in if I was on holiday, however it catered for our needs whilst I was away with a large group.

Dear Kevin, We appreciate you taking a few minutes to share your opinion of your recent stay with us. We are pleased that, on the whole, you enjoyed your stay with us at our Marconfort Griego Hotel as part of a swimming camp group here in Torremolinos. Our Marconfort Griego Hotel is a typical four star city hotel located in the centre of Torremolinos and is ideally situated for groups like yourselves due to its proximity to the Torremolinos Sports Village. Our triple rooms, in line with the majority of other hotels in Europe, are equipped with three beds and our quadruple rooms are equipped with four beds. Our air conditioning is controlled via a central thermostat and unfortunately during your stay was not operational. We are pleased that you enjoyed our new restaurant "La Gioconda", during the lunch service, serves pizzas and pastas freshly cooked to order, however our main restaurant, where the majority of our guests eat during the winter period, is buffet and as such food has to be kept moist i.e. pasta in a small amount of water, meats in sauces, etc. Thank you once again for comments.

Me and my Family (we were 4) spent our last holidays in Manconfort Griego Hotel in Torremolinos. We would like to share our impression about the place we stayed.
All inclusive is such an amazing thing in the hotel as from 8 o'clock in the morning to midnight you can eat and drink whatever you want all over hotel! Also we enjoyed swimming pool area which was always carefully treated and clean. By the way, in our rooms we liked tv's - flat-screen, sports channel, channels in different languages. The Hotel is perfectly located - you can simply reach all wanted points.
At last, the best part of the hotel that impressed us the most - THE ENTERTAINMENT TEAM!!! Our family wants to express our biggest THANKS to Natali, Vicky, Marino and especially Jose. They made our holidays! The weather at the time we visited Torremolinos wasn't so perfect, but activities created by this team warmed us completely up. Every day we were attracted by different activities - ping pong, darts, special evening programmes, dancing and lots of different other interesting things. After all, we are gonna miss Jose and his team. We are looking forward to our other holidays to party with them again.

Room Tip: Living on the second floor you don't need to use lift, view to swimming pool.

From checking in to checking out this was an excellent choice. The choices and standard of food was very good whether it was early or late for that particular meal. Nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff who polite friendly and very professional. Although some areas of the hotel are dated The standard of cleanliness from rooms to public areas was excellent. The only downside was the behaviour of a minority of British teenagers although when reported was dealt with.
The hotel is located within walking distance of Railway, beaches, water park, crocodile park, market and shopping.

Dear Jim, it gives us enormous pleasure to learn that you had a a great holiday with us and you found our Marconfort Griego Hotel to be an excellent choice. We are frequently praised on the choice of foods which we have available in our restaurants and snack buffet and whether an early diner (which we recommend to avoid the peak times) or a late diner the choice and quality remains the same. Our Marconfort Griego Hotel has recently undergone major refurbishment including our entrance, reception area, bedrooms, transit suite (for those with late departures) and the incorporation of our new restaurant "La Gioconda", however, this is just the start and more changes are planned for the future. Thank you for your excellent review and we look very much forward to seeing you again on a future occasion.

7 of us went on holiday here. The food was amazing and a lot of variety I suffer really bad with Coeliac disease and struggle to eat many foods without being sick. The hotel had a gluten free section and the restaurants manager would show me every night what food i was allowed and if i didnt like any of the choices he would ask the chef to make me something i liked.the staff were friendly and helpful and the entertianment was also good with lots of shows and family fun. I cannot wait to re-book for next year. :)
