Historical Traveler Reviews Marconfort Griego Hotel Torremolinos
Horse for courses
Having booked a late deal, we were totally unsure as to what to expect.
First impressions were that the Griego mar was a pretty big hotel, situated in at the top end of town. We arrived at 0400 so it was difficult to assess at first. In the morning we looked around, and found the hotel to be a lively, friendly largish hotel, with good facilities and average rooms. The staff were helpful, especially an English manager who'd help you out any time. The location is a problem - a good 3/4 mile to the beach (but it's shops all the way), and the top end of town isn't exactly picturesque. Food is what you'd expect - not a la carte, but perfectly acceptable. The pool was big, and got crowded very early and remained so for the rest of the day. It was always clean, and the maid cleaned (and tidied) our room - which was a mess, every morning. The bedding wasn't changed in the ten days we were there though! Overall, it was a pretty good hotel - for the money we paid....not 5* but we didn't pay 5* prices
Not excellent, Not awful, Just good...
A very simplistic hotel which is within 10 minutes drive of the airport. A very pleasant beach, with a variety of water sports and many (comfortable) sun beds is a 10 - 15 minute walk away. Along the walk there are many shops, bars and restaurants, as the hotel is situated a minute or 2 away from the main town. A 10 minute walk away from the hotel is a crocodile park, which is next door to a brilliant aqua park.
The pool side can get very busy and if you arent there when it opens (at 8:30), your unlikely to get a space. There is a great variety of plentiful food at the hotel and even a fussy eater will most likely find something to their taste. There are activities for people of all ages throughout the day. The evening entertainment is nothing to shout about, it is very child oriented and is in a few different languages, so or less youre a linguist you have to wait for your own language.
However, this seems to be one of the best hotels in the area for entertainment. Rooms are very basic, there is air conditioning (though it isnt brilliant) and there is satellite TV with 4 English channels: BBC World, Eurosport and 2 other channels, 1 of which didnt work and the other was a news channel I think. The maids came everyday. The hotel also has a gym which is open between 11 and 1 (just before lunch), a game room which is always open and a sauna (though it was 2 hot 2 bother 2 find it). Overall a good hotel.
Take your own sun brolly
This was the first time we have done a late booking we was very happy with this hotel good food very clean a little far away from the beach if you have young children. the pool is a very good size but the only thing that lets it down is to few sun brollys so come on get some more.
Good hotel but needs comedien etc. New ping pong net and maybe table ******
Whilst the Hotel was clean and tidy, the location is fantastic and the weather is lovely, the staff were grumpy and anything you asked them to do seemed too much trouble.
There was plenty of food at meal times, but don't be surprised if you come back looking like a chip!
Expect a rampage in the morning for a sun bed, the poolside is not big enough for the size of the hotel! If you do not get down to the pool for 9am you will nt get a sun bed or a position around the pool.
Good value for money
Good location - convenient for shops, bars, restaurants, bus and train stations. Food varied and plentifull, bar prices really cheap - couldn't complain at 1 euro for a glass of wine! Enjoyed our stay, but one word of warning - don't accept room 1110 - it doesn't have a window!!
Oh my Gosh
Im only 15 but have travelled around alot, this is the best hotel i have ever been to! The food entertainment, activities, people and situation and staff are all fantastic and i have stayed here for 4 years. Its a friendly environment and very child friendly. Everytime i visit something has changed either the dining room facilities, room decor, pool and so much more. Its a compact hotel but has everyting you will ever need and much more. Its not on the beach but its only 10 mins away! Its great and i go the same time every year! Its great for teenagers to as you can let them into town without a worry! Plase visit and have fun there! its great and maybe ill see u!
Spain it ain't
This is not a hotel for couples liking the sophisticated life. Whilst food provided at mealtimes is plentiful Michenlin standard it is not. Our room had rickety tacky furniture. The air conditioning was not available during the day when it was hot. Waste bins were at a premium. No details of the hotel and facitlites were provided in the room. Room service was a no no.All in all if you want a little luxury do not go here.
Very lively hotel !
Very lively hotel in the centre of Torremolinos. The entertainment team was fantastic. Thanks especially to Ales, Deborah and Amy ! Food was good and varied. Four bars with good prices for local and imported drinks. We come back next year !
Great place to stay
Very friendly hotel.Clean and tidy, All inclusive is your best option and they do a good picnic if you are going out for the day! Good distance from town and although not on the seafront it is only 10mins walk. Am going again this year for two weeks

When a ship docks all passengers will be given a time by which they must be back on board. This time is very clearly displayed as you exit and no one has an excuse for being late. But fortunately some people think it does not apply to them, or they misjudge the amount of time needed to return to the ship from wherever they are. And thus starts the Malaga Marathon.

... food while Maryln and I opted for barbequed meat at a beach bar. We enjoyed watching the world soccer, sharing the anguish of fellow Swiss diners when their team lost. Later that night, it was USA’s turn to be defeated by Belgium. Maryln led me into temptation by showing me the lovely selection of desserts at another restaurant and we shared a marble chocolate cake and had some very nice ...
... She looked somewhat dejected so we gave her 3 € and left. There wasn't a car in the lot that didn't have many scrapes and dents so we felt fortunate that we escaped the lot unscathed. Our trip home was uneventful . We were anxious to get to the pool and enjoy the last of the sunlight. Tried out the very bubbly not so hot, hot tub and then back up to prepare our supper of quiche and salad. Another great day!! Monday, October 7, we were up and away by 10:30 on our way ...
The drive from Granada to Costa del Sol (Sun Coast) was on good highways, winding coast roads, sickeningly high bridges, tunnels thru hills and mostly 120 kmh. No problems driving on the right so far, I'm actually more used to this than driving on the left nowadays. Although I still hang too much to the right of the lane and struggle with dual lane roundabouts. I stopped for lunch in Nerja, a seaside resort town. First glimpses of the beaches didn't impress me, ...
