I consider myself well-travelled, and despite some of the silly reviews on this site, I really cannot fault the Parador for its excellent location (overlooking the port and city centre) and its excellent restaurant - for both dinner and a wonderful breakfast selection, and for the lovely views. We only stayed one night, on route to self-catering accommodation further down... More

We chose the Parador and we were not disappointed with our choice. Great location. The views are magnificent. The hotel does have spectacular views as it is situated on the hillside. Each room has a small balcony, air conditioning and a well equiped bathroom. The restaurant is excellent, overlooking Malaga and it's harbour and served a lovely meal, with plenty... More

We stayed just one night here and thought it exceptional. Our room was luxurious and the balcony with the amazing view a bonus feature.We used the pool area too which was great but did not have breakfast. Dinner was outside on the terrace as there was a wedding on in the main restaurant. We took advantage of a special offer... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here one evening. The service was beyond poor, we were not greeted with one smile the entire stay. The house restaurant was even worse. For 20€ for a main course, this was a joke. The iberic swine was cold and fatty, so were the potatoes. The only thing this place has is a view, everything... More

This is one of the relatively newer Paradors and never fails to meet expectations, provided you know what to expect. The two downsides are, firstly, that it is unlikely you will find a parking place near Reception and, secondly you must not expect fast bar service, wherever you decide to sit. That said, the rooms are excellent, all overlooking Malaga... More

Thank you very much. Parking is limited and all of us want to park next to the reception! but not possible. In any case, does not take you more than two minutes the farthest parking place. Thank you for your opinion about the restaurant. More

The hotel is beautiful, set in a very nice scenery overlooking Malaga. Unfortunatly the all the staff doesent take their job very seriously. The reception was cold and unfriendly. Furthermore when the rooftop pool was closed, there was no excuse, just a fake smile. The dinner in the evening, on the terrace overlooking Malaga , was great with great staff.... More

This hotel has old Spanish style. It is old fashioned in its appearance but is charming, and still has all the amenities you could need. It is secluded, so perfect for relaxing couples. Malaga's old town is only 15minutes walk down country path, or 7€ in a taxi. Pool is small and not many sun loungers but that's perfect for... More

We have stayed at this parador twice and love the opportunity to be OVER Malaga, but not necessarily IN it. It is easy to catch a bus to the city and back, which I would recommend rather than driving. (The first time we visited we ended up hiring a taxi to drive to the parador ahead of us because we...

This was a gorgeous Parador overlooking Malaga, the bullfighting ring, and the harbor from a hilltop wonderland. The rooms are great. The walk down into the city by the fortress is magical. We would definitley stay here again. We can recommend the restaurant for views and seafood, but the pasta and duck were awful.

Stayed for 2 nights at the Parador after a tour of Andalucia the hotel was very nice with wonderful views of Malaga , the staff were the most sullen we had encountered, we have stayed at several paradors in Spain but the staff at Gibralfaro were by far the most miserable
