Marconfort Beach Club Hotel
160 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"The only downside to this hotel is the food, not that it was bad, just very boring and repetitive! The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel was imaculate - hygeine and general cleanliness of very high standard. Would recommend to friends and family - definately worth a visit."

Excellent Family Hotel
"We've just returned from a fortnight here in september and how anyone can criticise this hotel is beyond me!! There's everything you could want for an enjoyable family holiday.......My kids cried on the last day. The Thomson kids reps, Ruth, Sara & Nicola do a superb job, have the patience of saints and the kids love them.........Well Done..!!!!
The Hotel entertainment team, Fernando, Gavin and Lucy make a big effort to keep the kids and adults happy with games during the day and mini disco, bingo and entertainment on a night. The only thing they were short of were willing volunteers for some of the activities especially waterpolo. The Cleaners do a fantastic job keeping the place spotless, the rooms being cleaned daily and the public areas and toilets cleaned regularly (it was common to see the toilets being cleaned every couple of hours between 7am and 12pm). The Food was always hot and plentiful with lots of variety and the Chefs specials were excellent..(tip:..try the Lamb - its superb). Hand wipes were issued to everyone entering the restaurant - however, some ignoramuses chose not to use them! Final thanks to the staff on the Magnum Bar, especially Doni, who worked exhaustively day and night but always managed to smile - and remember your drinks. Overall an excellent holiday and one we'll be repeating in future. Keep up the good work Beach Club. Mark, Wendy, Charlotte (7) & Emily (3)"

!! floor bar need to go on a customer care course or retire.
"Stayed at the Beach Club August-weather scorching!Overall disappointed with holiday for amount we paid.Had been recommended by friends who's stayed there b4 but it seems alot has changed since then.Food ok but repetitive most of us were struggling by 2nd week to face it all over again.Weird concoctions on times!Bar staff by pool bar absolutely excellent, worked hard & non-stop but always pleasant & good fun.Old bar men upstairs bar rude & unhelpful.Need to go on a customer care course or retire. Seemed they deliberately made mistakes with your drink order to put you off going back."

"My first visit to Costa Del Sol and I loved it, since then I admit I have moved up market to Sol Principe and they cannot compare. The Beach Club was warm inviting and an English Manageress was so good to have.
It is a little bit out of the way asI now know from my recent 4th visit, but bus stop outside helps and now I have the confidence to travel by bus and train for the first this year ( loan parent with 8 yr old daughter) I would say go for it....where the scare came from last year I dont know, it was so clean and as an all inclusive Hotel set the standards, we would go back, if our now desiganated Hotel cannot accomodate us!"

"I've just got back and already i am missing the Beach Club. I've read a couple of reviews and was shocked to see that some people were unhappy with the hotel. However, the majority of these reviews were written in 2002, but it is now 2003, therefore i have reason to believe that the hotel has greatly improved.
The food was weird but wonderful. They often had themed mights which included Chinese and Mexican/American food.
The staff (in particular the bar men) were very friendly and helpful, even at times when the queues for drinks etc. were enormous.
The location was perfect and as far as i could see everyone was having the time of their lives, from the children to the elderly."

"I had a great time!! I think alot more people should go there... But the Sunbeds!! There was none of them for us, I think they should not allow reserve sunbeds. Paco (Barman) was miserable.I only ever saw him smile ONCE!! The staff and workers were GREAT! I reccomend you to go all inclusive, and take full advantage of the drinks and food you can get... :)James,Birmingham, England."

"just got back from a mini break here. Lovley place, very clean, friendly staff, excellent food. Bonus for us is that it is a mere stones throw from the beach. The sight of all the building work when we arrived on the coach was a little disheartening but to be fair it didnt upset our holiday at all. We would definately go again"

No first aiders
"Lovely food and food staff. My daughter trapped her finger in the balcony doors no stoppers on it. Went to reception asked for a first aided not available even tried the swimming pool at the fest they offered me paracetamol and a bandage . Went down later for the paracetamol to be told they only had one . Later in the week went to the pharmacy and then went down to get some scissors a lady whom o assumed was the area manager asked what had happened and then told her it can't be broken it's not black , she helped me bandages it . We got bk to leads and had it checked fractured in two places . Have emailed misplayed not ever an acknowledgment , Sunshine has also been trying to contact them still no reply . My daughter cannot use this finger and has had to stop her hairdressing course . Eight weeks and still no reply totally disgusted "

don't stay here
"Close to the beach. Not 4 star, apart from reception this place is shabby. The food is adequate at best, not appetizing or tempting. the pool area is again at best adequate, needs a full refurbishment. The place is riddled with a bug. All 5 of my party were violently sick when we stayed here in September. My 3-year-old had to be given anti vomiting injection in the night. The manager didn't care less. We moved hotels at our own expense.
AVOID THIS DUMP!"
