Marconfort Beach Club Hotel
Ranked #25 of 71 Hotels in Torremolinos

Reviewed May 31, 2012

Just returned from a 11 day stay at the Beach Club.
Our party consisted of 6 people ranging in age 8-84yrs old staying in 3 rooms on floor level 1(106/7/14) all of which had side sea views with daytime sunshine.
As you will understand due to the mix of ages it would have been tricky for a hotel to accomodate the needs of the various members of the family.
In my opinion the hotel largely met the needs of my group.
Reception
Being recently upgraded from a 3 star to a 4 star hotel the upgraded reception area/lounge was everything you would expect from a 4 star hotel
The check in was speedy and efficient.
Lifts
4 small lifts which suggests suitable for 6 but would have to be people on the slim side to fit.
Only 1 of the lifts went as far as downstairs where the 3 pools are situated and the other main bar and theatre so was problematic for the elderly and disabled where a long wait was the norm especially at peak times for example at the end of a theatre show.
Rooms
Probably no more than a 3 star room which was in size good for a couple but less so for a family where extra beds have to be accomodated.
Decoration and furniture a bit dated but ok.
Bathroom fine in size but tended to be quite dark principally due to the dark green ceiling tile which I am sure a bright tile would enhance considerably.
Shower was also very old fashioned but a negative was the fixed shower screen making it almost impossible for the elderly /disabled to access having to step over the bath to access and unfortunately the taps/shower controls were at the far end of the bath meaning you had to negotiate the entire length of the screen to access.
Balcony/View
A reasonable sized balcony with a terrific view.(Very Good)
Staff
I found the staff to be one of the best things about the hotel.
The kids club reps were superb and the bar staff very good also.
Good service always smiling even for the many young children who came to the bar for drinks.
Occassionally a queue would form for drinks but not that often and even then only a few minutes.
The reception staff I found were not quite so friendly and sometimes tended to ignore you but not a big issue.
Food/Drink Quality.
Think this is an area which would be the focus of divided opinion.
Our group on balance found the food to be pretty good with a good variety and always piping hot.
The pasta/pizza bar very popular with my 10 years old and 8 yr old grandchildren.
You could choose at lunch/dinner every day from either pork,chicken,turkey,beef,fish with continental cold meats,salad bar available also and 2 choices of soup.
Some of these choices hand cooked and served by a chef carvery style.
You would have a choice of at least 3 of these options and always various deserts and ice cream.
At breakfast the chef prepared omelettes or fried eggs was popular.
Sausages and Bacon usual Spanish standard.
Drinks were the most disappointing for me.
Nothing wrong with the measures they gave you but whatever drink you tried had no strength to it and many did not taste very pleasant.
Perhaps the draught mixers will not have helped.
Pool Area.
3 outside pools and 1 indoor pool heated shut during the summer were very pleasant areas but tended to be very heavily populated and not much space.
The sunbeds were the usual white plastic slatted version but no cushions to make this very uncomfortable seating and after day 1 our group avoided completely.
Also if you wanted a sunbed you had to be an early bird with the towel on sunbed custom very prevalent and not controlled by the hotel.
However,there was a plentiful supply of table and chairs around the corner from the pools which suited our needs.
Could do with extra parasol bases as they were few in number and most people didnt use them with the result that when the wind appeared they toppled quite frequently.
Many of the tables did not have holes in the middle to allow parasol use.
Entertainment
Entertainment every night from 8.30pm with either a kids mini disco,parrot show,reptile show,eagle show which the kids loved and fun to watch for adults.
Bingo at 9.30 and a cabaret act at 10pm.
Watch out for the exhorbitant 15 euro per photo per child taken after each of the animal shows.
The acts for our group were in the main quite good and the standard equal to what you would find perhaps in any Social Club.
The only other minor niggle I had was the hotel charged 2 euro for use of the pool table which I thought was a little expensive.

Overall our group thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and many of the critiscisms I have made are relatively minor.
I would consider the hotel suitable for families but not really young couples or people looking for peace and quiet.

We stayed at the beech club 10th may till the 24th may. In that time we had very little meat and there was no variety or fish foods (prawns and salmon) the standard of food we had was only 2 star rating and not as it says in the brochure which says its a four star. We have been there approximately 12 times before the refurbishment thinking it would be a four star it would have improved but it was better as a three star, we will not be coming back!

Dear Anonamous :
Thank you for your opinion about our hotel.
We regret much that has not liked the hotel food, but I have to say that if we have shrimp and salmon and other many kinds of fish. Maybe that during your stay not have coincided in this meal, while the rest of opinions say that the food is very good.
We will try to improve on it.
Your sincerely

we have just returned from a weeks break as a group of 3 familys,we had 4 rooms between us and every room was good, we stayed in room 214 which was a room for 4 on the corner of the hotel,we where all in one room with not much space, our friends had 715 which was a 2 beded room for 4 which was much better and right at the front loads of space with a huge balcony if travelling as a family request a 2 beded room much better rooms, the hotel was very good value for money, the all inclusive was amazing, food all day from 7.30 in the morning until midnight,very good choice of food catering for all tastes,bar staff were amazing very friendly nothing too much trouble, the only few things that let this hotel down, there was not enough sunbeds around the pool and they were uncomfortable, no fridges in the rooms, and the entertainment at night was not our cup of tea,the childrens and daytime entertainment was good, just shame about the night time, and the piano bar plays some kind of repetative background music all day and night which sends you to sleep, as a four star hotel family friendly hotel i would not expect stag and hen party groups there, it was a bit shocking when you have children playing around the pool area and a group of drunken blokes parading a blow up doll around the place dressed in mankinis and using the doll as a lilo in the pool ( yes i am young and love a good group holiday and a laugh, but not when my kids are about), this was the huge downside and if this hotel wants to be an upmarket 4 star hotel it needs to stop these same sex bookings really let the place down.

Room Tip: ask for a corner room or a 2 beded room

Just back from a weeks stay at this hotel and cant fault it. All inclusive is the way to go.. food available all day until nearly midnight. Variety of food, snacks and drinks was brill. Very very clean all the way through the hotel. 3 outdoor pools and one indoor all brilliant and well cared for. Right next to the beach which is also lovely. Great for families and couples. Bit quiet though so not for young groups as will need taxis to find clubbing nightlife.

Just back from a 5 day stay in this hotel with my four friends. Quick and Prompt check in with staff who spoke great english. We had booked a triple room so were expecting 3 beds, instead we found 4 but reception had one moved out quickly when we asked, also requested extra pillows which came quickly as well.

Room cleaned daily and towels changed daily, only thing we did not like was sheets not changed during our stay.

We went all inclusive and there was food suitable for all tastes, plenty of choice and desserts to die for.

Unfortunaly we did not spend any time at the pool as people were putting towels on the beds from breakfast time ( even though they were in having breakfast ) so i can't comment on the pool area, so we went to the beach directly across from the hotel.

Entertainment was a bit hit and miss we found, first night was a drag show which was very good, second night acrobats which was boring, third night a great welsh singer, fourth night a dance troup which was not the best and our last night another great female singer.

While the hotel was right across from the beach there was not many other places to go at night time, so we went in to benalmedena 2 nights which was expensive in taxi 's, as there was 5 of us they do not have people carrier taxi's.

All in all a great hotel which i would recommend for a short stay, I don't think we would like to have stayed here for 2 weeks as we would have been bored.

We stayed in May for 9nights, food very good choice with show cooking and a pizza pasta corner. Staff very good, a special mention for Milla on the pool bar, a credit to the hotel. Entertainment good, our 4 year old loved the parrot and eagle show and mini disco's, entertainment staff very good and remembered our sons name. Location good, just over the road from the beach which we loved. Bus stops outside hotel if you want to go into town or you can walk in about 20mins. The only slight negative is the noise at weekends when lots of Spanish arrive, especially at night outside lifts, perhaps security can monitor this late at night and signs on lifts/walls to remind guests to keep the noise down at night.
On the whole we had a fantastic holiday, it's very good value for money and we will definitely return next year, we would definately recommend a stay here, you won't be disappointed.
