Great Central Location

5 March 2015

We Have been to the Marconfort Griego about 4 or 5 times in the past 3 years never been disappointed. We are going again in April. the hotel is situated less than 10 mins walk from the railway...

Went on an all inclusive break (first time ever) and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean and well run, the food was perfectly acceptable, with plenty of choice and the staff were helpful and polite. The rooms were fine, cleaned daily and we slept well. The atmosphere was relaxed, we had a very restful holiday.

Just got back from this hotel had a fantastic time. Hotel is spotless lovely rooms ours had just been refurbished. The staff are great Carl one of the managers made us very welcome nothing too much trouble. The restaurant is excellent the food is fantastic and they all work so hard. Special thanks to Daniel in the restaurant always smiling and looked after me when I burnt my hand. Ther is another restaurant that is on the complex that you have to book but it's well worth a try. The food is amazing and pedro who was our waiter was fantastic very attentive and polite and again nothing too much trouble. I cannot recommend this hotel strongly enough and I will definitely be returning

Firstly let me say that I feel the hotel should be graded 'Good' but as there isn't this option in the ratings I've gone for the 'Average' score in direct comparison to the Marconfort Beach Hotel where I stayed last year which was really rather good - if you have the choice and don't necessarily need to be in Torre town then go for the beach option. In common with most of the central hotels, the Griego harks back to the early sixties style of architecture but a lot of money has obviously been spent on the interior and it is up to date and modern. During the period of my brief stay the wifi was down - apparently it was being upgraded to fibre-optic and, although I could communicate with the router, there was no external connection. I think that wifi will be available throughout the hotel, including the rooms when it's upgraded so this, for me, is a great plus point. The staff were all very friendly, especially the guy in charge of the 'La Giaconda' restaurant which is adjacent to the pool and is more of a snack restaurant than the main one. However, if all you need/want at lunchtime, La Giaconda is the place to go, there were never more than half a dozen people in there and the food, though very restrictive in the choice, was excellent. The main restaurant does get busy at feeding times, even with lengthy sitting times and there are queues at the most popular times. Food is very good, very varied and, generally, hot when it should be. The staff are very efficient at clearing empty tables so, even if you ARE queuing at peak times, you shouldn't have to wait long. My room was fine, clean and tidy. Not overly large but as a single traveller I wouldn't expect it to be. Perfectly acceptable for the amount of time I spent in it. The hotel was very busy for the time of year, mostly Spanish. I'm guessing they visit now, before the mass invasion begins in a couple of months time! If you're less mobile the you may have an issue. The reception area is on a lower level than one of the bars and access to another bar and the pool area (although there are two chair-lifts, neither seemed to be in operation at the time of my visit). Obviously there are the usual ramps to provide additional access but I thought I'd mention it. One thing that caused me a little confusion when I was in the lift descending from my room; in the lift there are 2 buttons - 'R' and 'H'. I assumed (wrongly) that 'R' was 'Reception'. No, it's 'Restaurant' whilst 'H' (presumably meaning 'Hotel') is reception. A small point but worth remembering! My biggest gripe is that the Griego, in common with a couple of hotels I've recently visited now serves beer only in small glasses and us Brits do like our pints! Indeed, one guy had bought his own Carling glass which I thought was very far sighted. I can only assume this is a cost-saving measure but not one I appreciate. I'm sure the hotel loses far more money with the amount of food that is wasted but there you go. The hotel is very close to the town centre and the Plaza de la Independencia is the place to sit and watch the world go by. Just off the main square is a tiny little bar called 'The Rugby Club' and I would definitely recommend a visit, quiet and friendly. As a town, Torremolinos is looking a little 'tired'. I think it was one of the first popular Spanish holiday resorts of the sixties and would benefit from a little 'sprucing up' in general. Finally, if you have an overwhelming desire to have your hair done whilst away, you're spoilt for choice - I've never seen so many 'peluquerias' in such a small area! I hope this review helps.
