3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Stayed here is September for 10 nights, The room we were allocated was terrible, you went in to a small room with little light ( like a tiny doctors surgery) then through to a small bedroom when I complained at reception they informed me they would move me the next day and they did with no hassle to a beautiful room beside the pool. We had a late sitting for dinner and though the food was lovely I felt we should have been able to eat when we wanted, The snacks were bad, hard rolls with ham ( spam) and cheese though there was plenty of fruit. Drinks were good and were able to help ourselves. The staff were lovely and entertainment was quite good on some of the nights. My main gripe was the set dinner times, 1st sitting too early and the 2nd too late, this would ensure I would not go back to this hotel.

We have just returned 21 April 2013, from our second visit to this excellent hotel.

From the moment you arrive your made to feel special, helpful and good mannered reception staff, who make you aware of the hotels many facilities and direct you to your room quickly and efficiently.

The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are cleaned daily, the food is, well all I can say superb!, plenty of choice from roasts meats and vegetable's chips etc to a variety of specialised dishes and sweets, I eat far to much but your on holiday so worry about losing the pounds when you get home.

We like this hotel because of its location, its in a quite part of Torremolinos away from the towns bars and clubs but in easy reach if that's what your looking for, its well serviced by buses, taxi's and a train station which is 10 min walk away, so getting about to explore other parts of the coast line, resorts is easy, or if you just won't to spend a lazy day on the beach soaking up the sun then a 2 minute walk is all it takes to a spotlessly clean beach, fun for all the family.

I could go on but if you look through the many positive review's for this hotel I'm sure you'll see that a lot of other visitors have all have similar experience's and opinions, so don't take my word for this book it and see for yourselves you won't be disappointed.

Just one other thing, the entertainment has improved from the last time we visited, possibly the influence of the Rui group who now operate this hotel, were not sure, but there was something on every night from drag acts (very funny) to vocal artists and flamenco dancing.

All in all, another enjoyable holiday at what is one of our favourite hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool as these get sun all day.

We first booked for Marconfort Beach Club but after reading reviews of the stomach bug on trip advisor we decided to switch hotels.So glad we did! We traveled to this hotel as a family and couldn't fault it at all( kids 12 and 13)l. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful even when I often tried my hand at Spanish and frequently got it wrong! The food was excellent with a wide variety of choice and everywhere was clean. There wasn't much in the way of entertainment but we didn't mind that. We were very lucky with the weather as it was hot and we used the pool daily(even though the pool was cold ), To be honest if it was raining then there isn't a lot to do but it was fine for us and the children have said that they would like to go again at the same time next year.

Room Tip: We were in room 219, we had the sun in the afternoon on our balcony.

Hotel was very clean staff friendly great food - excellent variety. Unfortunately the end of our week was spoilt by some very rude guests. I understand hotels need business but must they book in large groups of men who obviously cannot exercise any self control when faced with free or all inclusive drink? My wife was even subject to one english man throwing a beveridge at her. We did complain. The same day at dinner the same group of men staggered around the restaurant making us feel very uncomfortable.

Just returned from 2 weeks in Torremolinos, Hotel very clean, all staff Very friendly and helpful,
The food was good and plenty of variety, the only complaint was there was Garlic on most of the vegetables, eg carrots, Broccoli. cauliflower and potatoes (we hate Garlic) Our room faced the pool so we had the sun in the afternoon, if you like walking its quite a way from the main area of
Torremolinos which we didnt mind at all, we actually walked as far as Benalmadena, but there is a bus into town right outside the Hotel, and the train station is not far, so we went to Malaga and Fuengirola, takes about 25 minutes.We did put our names down for a free blanket trip to Malaga but the coach never turned up, so I wouldnt bother with this,also we never saw our holiday rep after the welcome meeting, and no notification of when she would be at her desk,would just like to say how brilliant the young entertainment girl was, from arranging games for children, running rifle shooting, boules and other activities as well as the evening entertainment in the bar, so congratulations ZOE your doing a great job.

Room Tip: Our room looked over terrace and pool bar,was quiet and got afternoon sun.

I can only praise this hotel for excellent service. We had a fabulous week over Easter. Nice room with separate lounge area with settee over looking the pool. Great for all inclusive, the food was excellent quality with a wide range to choose from. There was a great choice of drinks including cocktails on the AI menu. The bar service was prompt and the staff were friendly as I spoke to them in Spanish. Excellent location for public transport, bus stop is opposite hotel, takes 10 minutes to Torremolinos town centre. The train station is a 10 minute walk away, where you can travel to Malaga. We took the train to Fuengirola, which took 25 minutes, clean spacious trains with plenty of seats, a really pleasant journey. I would certainly return to this hotel.
