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...
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.

the grigo was officially rated a 3 star but with hard work it is now a 4 star. On arrival 19th February i thought something has changed but could not put my finger on it, whilst we were checking in I heard "owe do" I looked up and there was Carl the assistant manager to the hotel, he came straight over shook my hand and gave the wife the standard two kisses on the cheeks, he the said how do you like the improvements I said give us a chance we haven't got to the room, no I mean the reception, then it hit, gone was the dingy old dark pigeon hole for keys, it had been all redecorated, the shop had been relocated and it was all bright and shiny like a new penny, he the told us of other improvements, laminate flooring in the corridors,and bedrooms, gone was the crappy old TVs, we now had 32" flat screen TVs and guess what 4 English channels, they were working to provide free wi fi throughout the hotel rooms as well, hair dryers in the bath rooms and to cap it off a new sparkly restaurant where the games room used to be ( the old dining room is still there) the new restaurant served snacks during the day but on an evening (fri & sat) presently you have to book your table and only all inclusive guests allowed. The food was brilliant, some moan that it's repetitive but I bet it's better than some people's food at home, I saw plenty of loaded plates at the start of eating and more than 95% empty plates at the end, you must remember they cater for 700 to 800 people 3 times a day every day so Sod's law says someone will moan Now to the staff, they say if the workers are happy, the work place is a happy place to be, we'll all I can say is this must be the happiest place in Torremolinas, the staff are brilliant, happy smiles all round and if you try to speak Spanish they return the compliment by trying to speak English back to you There is a man you will see lurking around, very well dressed and very polite, his name is Carl, watch out he's the assistant manager to the hotel he's English speaks Spanish fluently and origionates from the north of England, say no more it's impossible to get a drink out him, joking aside he's a great chap and will as all the staff will, try to make your stay a happy one

Brilliant value for money stop over £49 for 3 of us all inclusive food excellent rooms clean and fully equipped , even entertainment the only thing that let's this hotel down a bit is it's location but for a cheap night who cares ! Give it a try
Beautiful sunny days, and mild nights are what Torremolinos holidays are famed for. Typical summer temperatures can hit 30° Celsius or even higher, so bring plenty of light, airy clothes and extra sunscreen! Water temperatures are also very mild, in the low twenties, so paddling or swimming is particularly pleasant during the summer season when holidays in Torremolinos are most popular.
