... a 20min walk made all the more better by flat roads and no boots. It was a quick six hours, a few beers, some sun, something to eat and we appeared to be off. It wasn't quite like that, we talked, we caught up, we found out all the Swansea gossip and then we were off. My T shirt sun tan may well become a craze in the costa del sol but I'll wait and see. Back to the airport and into the lounge (I'm an international traveler) before joining the flight for home and yes, we were the last ones ...
... Beach and Miami seafronts. The streets are beautifully clean and lined with little tourist shops that are locked behind roll-up garage doors at night. Along the whole Torremolinos coast there are 'chiringuitos' (beach bars) where one can try the famous fried fish of Malaga or the sardines 'on the spit' (locally known as 'Espetos').

Historical Traveler Reviews Marconfort Beach Club Hotel Torremolinos
On most occasions the reception staff were not that friendly. felt that many times they ignored you and made you wait for a while although they were not busy. The food was the worst I have eaten and I have travelled to many places. I stayed at the Principie Sol 10 yrs ago and the food was much better there! Thought the staff in general were not very friendly, they mostly talked among themselves rather then to the guests. especially in the dining room. The Bar service was the same way, especially at the lobby bar, where the bartender would push a loud buzzer and a lighted sign would say "TIPS" We basically only used the services of this bar maybe for four drinks in a day. I realize some people sat in that area for hours and hours at a time just drinking and maybe the hint was for them. I did not tip daily but did so on our last day, but rather with regret then with gratitude!I had read a lot of comments regarding this hotel after we had booked it and was afraid to be staying there with the remarks being made, but all in all the room was clean and comfortable. We had to request a room change due to construction next door (very noisey) Don"t think I would recommend this hotel to my friends.
Paco the barman arrogant
we were at beach club from 2 feb-9 feb i have been ill for 3 days. we were all inclusive paco the barman would not give us drinks sometimes he was very grumpy always shouting at the kids. nothing for kids to do . night entertainment okay for elderly 60 plus. the annexe was very dirty.
Best Value holiday you could wish for, will be returning for sure.
Visited said hotel, for a week, back in october 2002 with my wife and 8 year old son. Could not heap enough praise on it. Rooms are good, with breathtaking views overlooking the coastline. All inclusive menu was unbelievable value catering for all tastes. Entertainment/staff were hilarious. Enjoyed some excellent 'acts' like stars in your eyes contestants. Only fault was on a trip out to the zoo, where we just could not get served there at the cafe/bar, for some reason the staff were only the serving locals and kept ignoring us?
Going back in 2003 anyway (except the zoo).
We had a great time at the Beach Club over Xmas. Weather great, food excellent, staff friendly and helpful, good facilities, really clean. Would defintely go again.
Great Value For Money
We spent a week at the Beach Cub Hotel during October 2002 and can not speak too highly of the staff and the quality and quantity of the food on offer during the week.
We have been to many places abroad paying a lot more money but our room at the Beach Club was better than any we had stayed in any where before.
The location for us was very good as we could walk up to Torremolinos in the morning and spend the sunny afternoons on the beach only yards from the hotel. The entertainment at night was reasonable which for us made the end of 7 perfect days.
The only thing that spoilt our holiday was English holiday makers trying to cash in on the bad press the Beach Club had received. The Brits were being extremely rude to members of staff and made me embarrased to be English
On all occassions their complaints were totaly unjustified.
One person was objecting to having to pay extra for a branded vodka even though there was a large card on the bar in front of her clearly stating that extra would be charged.
If you want a value for money holiday go to the Beach Club Hotel this year.
Fantastic holiday went in 1999 decided it was that good we went back in 2001 and we also have plans to visit in the future. Great bars and the facilities are excellent. On our 2nd visit everything had been upgraded every room had been fitted with air conditioning and the swimming pools made larger and more fun! And what can i say about the food? First class the best food you will taste! The staff are so helpful it is unbelievable.
Anyone who is thinking about going to the beach club go for it!
Beach Club rules ok
Just back from Beach Club on December 7th, one week of superb weather (22degrees plus each day), food excellent, all inclusive package well worth the price.
The only way anyone was sick was with having too good a time, all staff as helpful as I have ever encountered, entertainment was also very good, especially for December.
All those worried about bug can stay in the UK and get the flu, those wanting a bit of heat with good food and good fun head for the Beach Club in winter.
Too many people seem to only talk of the bad issues, the good at Beach Club far outweigh the bad.
Went Saturday 30/11/02 for a week. Didnt last that long, ended up getting a flight home on the Wednesday the 4/12/02. DONT GO.
Every where was shut. The amount I drunk to shut out the boardum, should have put me in a coma.
People who we went with they would have come home early too if they had'nt had their bags stolen. Three bags got stolen in two days, one from inside the reception and two from the local moped mafia.
If your thinking about going here, think again. Belson was better.
Hotel Beach Club! What a place
I visited the beach club in July 02 for two weeks and had an excellent time! All the staff were very friendy and as for the hotel having a health scare what alot of rubbish! some people were sick for a day or so but it wasnt just in the beach club alot of other hotels had it too. And as for the people who called in GMTV Get a Life! u were offered to move hotel and chose to stay where you were so it obviously wasnt that bad! I would reccommend the hotel to anyone and am definately going back again for another visit!
