... to the parking, getting our car and drive to Torremolinos which was on the way back to Malaga. In Torremolinos we parked our car in a underground parking and walked down to the boulevard which followed the beach for kilometers. It was nice cause there were all small shops and trendy bars build on and aside a beautiful beach. We had something to drink on a terrace and walked for about an hour, than we walked back through the old part of the ...
... Riet again of course and had breakfast all together on the terrace. We tan took our cars and went to Malaga where we first had coffee and cake at a real fancy Hotel/Café on top of the mountain overlooking Malaga with a fantastic view. This was lovely and Riet and Nico insisted to offer this to us all. We than went into the town centre to walk around for a bit and visited the oldest café of Malaga with a real special atmosphere where we had ...
... strange – his friends and the shop assistant guided him through the lengthy process with animated discussion while we tried to look the other way.
That evening we were determined to have the huge meat kebabs that the 'chiringuitos' barbequed to perfection! Our restaurant was right on the beach – beautiful setting, beautiful weather!
... too long cause she would have run out of nice things to say and God knows what the place would have been called. "Muy Bien" would have covered it!
We had a great week with the Foreman Clan, sunning ourselves, strolling on the beach, sipping Rioja and San Miguel, and swimming, lots of swimming, some even braved the sea but we can’t mention names... let’s just say they are used to the Atlantic so the Mediterranean must have been warm ...
... We passengers talked as we walked to our shuttle, which turned out to be a Mercedes sedan. I looked at the two friendly strangers and their very large suitcases, thinking of our own one large and one small suitcases, and wondered how the driver would fit all four of us and our luggage. The driver made a gallant effort but kept mumbling and shaking his head as he knocked on their hard cases. Finally, he threw up his hands and declared "it's impossible!". He called ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marconfort Griego Hotel Torremolinos
Having booked a late deal, we were totally unsure as to what to expect.
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.
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
