The view from the road to Alarcon looks like something from Lord of the Rings. A town built on a plateau surrounded by a river. Follow directions to the parador for this hotel. Alarcon is very much like Portmeirion in North Wales. Streets of stone built terraced cottages but most were locked up with padlocks and chains. We saw only... More

A beautiful hotel in an absolutely stunning cliff-side setting, surrounded by magnificent old buildings, including a Parador in the castle next door. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the room opened to a terrace with a memorable view and was lovely. We didn't eat there, but in the highly recommended Restaurante La Cabana where we had an excellent... More

The setting is fabulous, Alarcon is worth a detour. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, bedrooms and bathrooms spacious. Good standard of freeby toiletries. Dinner & breakfast were delicious, not a vast choice but all fresh and well-cooked. Staff were really helpful and spoke good English. Would definitely go there again.

Arrived at this stunningly located hotel to be under whelmingly greeted by miserable staff , who managed to stay in the doldrums throughout our three day trip. I say staff, only two were ever present and communicated via walky talky, the experience of staying her was akin to being a ghost on the Mary Celeste Bar service non existent, particularly... More

We stayed at the Spa Villa de Alarcon because it is well situated for an overnight stop during the drive from Santander to southern Spain. The hotel is about 50 metres from the Parador and it is excellent value - quite a lot cheaper than the Parador. The reception staff were efficient and friendly, the room clean and well-appointed. The... More

We booked this hotel after being disappointed by the room the Parador had set aside for us and we are glad we did. We liked our room and its view, the staff, and the breakfast served in a delightful dining room. The ineptitude of the Parador saved us major dollars and provided us with an unexpectedly delightful experience.

The hotel is beatifully seated on the edge of a cliff with a spectacular view from the pool. Nice , clean rooms. The problem was no functioning AC , and with 30 deg C in the room at night, we didnt get much sleep. We were not informed by the staff, who obviously knew about it, until we contacted the... More

Very nice hotel on the countryside next to the castle and parador of Alarcon. Had a suite on the top floor, big. Unfortunately, elevator and AC weren't working that single night we spent in the hotel. Got a reduction in price. Don't eat there, breakfast mediocre. There is a very nice restaurant 50 m away for dinner called "La Cabana... More

Visited hotel as nearest venue to Parador that despite four star designation had no restaurant in evening! Spa Villa restaurant very quiet on a Thursday night as we were told that Alarcon is a holiday venue with "life" only at weekends. With only five for dinner in total this could be true. Food was mediocre and wine list did not... More
