“Would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Bit of a late review but I stayed here in June for 2 week, I wasn't aware that we had to go across the road to eat which I thought was not good at first but it was fine loved that we had a choice of two hotels to use the facilitys all staff very friendly especially the bar staff! The rooms didn't seem to get clean for the two week while we was there neither did the beds get changed but to be honest I wasn't even that bothered. I am planing on returning to benidorm in 2015 and was thinking of staying in this hotel again and now I've found out it is having a refurb I am defentlly going to book here next year.

Good fun and laugh with friends in a basic all you need hotel. Room was clean and a good view from balcony, well of the next doers hotel empty pool. All inclusive food was what you would expect and the Spanish rum is rocket fuel.
Short walk into Benidorm shopping district and about 15 mins from beach.

Just returned from the Marconfort and once again had a fantastic time...special thanks to Lilli on reception, as she gave us the rooms that we had requested, she is always friendly and helpfull. All of the staff are really nice. Great location only 10 mns walk into either the new town or old town. Fiesta week was great, very very busy but worth going at this time. Again all of the shows in the bars were really good, especially at valentinos where Martin Kent was performing.

All in all FANTASTIC.... would not dream of going to another hotel.....and it is going to be re-furbed and will be ready by end of February, so roll on next year.....Thanks again to Lilli she is a STAR

Room Tip: Ask Lilli for any help that you need

Stayed here 24th October 2014 and thought it was excellent value for money, found all staff nice and friendly, reception staff very helpful, our lovely housekeeper cleaned our room (which was a good size ) every day leaving fresh towels, food was great with plenty to choose from. Drink was good as well. We also had a great view as we stayed in room 2103 at very top.
Would stay here again

Just come back from 3 nights stay. Great location and food in sister hotel was excellent. They virtually fed you all day. Sunloungers bit uncomfortable cider not included in all inclusive but lots of other drinks available. Would recommend

we stayed all inclusive for a week in October. The meals are taken over the road in the sister hotel. The apartments were bulit in the early 90's and have not been refurbished think limed oak and white tiles. They are spacious quiet and clean lifts a bit small and slow but we were on the 17th floor and it was never really an issue fab views accross Benidorm. The real star is the marconfort suites where the main pool bars and dining rooms are we only paid £300 each and it would have been way more to stay at the suites the food is superb it's all been fully modernised you really can't ask for more. Everything ran smoothly no complaints at all i will be back. Way better that the Fiesta Park where we normally stay

Room Tip: higher the better for the views and cool air flow at night
