On my last day in Spain, I stayed at this Parador in Malaga. I thought it would be a great occasion to relax in a nice setting. The part about the nice setting was right but the hotel itself left much to be desired. Checking was a breeze but the front desk attendant wasn't particularly helpful in offering insights around...

A lovely hotel beautifully situated atop a hill giving vies across the sea as far as the coast of N Africa. Watching the sun go down whilst dining on the terrace was made for a perfect evening. Room very clean, well appointed. Overall a very good place to stay

My husband and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary after seeing a promotion for the Picasso Room (complimentary bottle of cava, fruits, dinner, in-room breakfast) and it was really very relaxing and enjoyable. The views were spectacular especially around evening (sunset) time. The room was huge and had a small balcony/terrace attached to it, from where you can... More

Everything was 'adequate' but could have been wonderful if a little more effort had been made. Bedroom clean and comfortable. Dinner was reasonable but just fell short of memorable. Breakfast was better. However all those shortcomings were forgotten when remembering its situation and the view. Those are my opinions! My wife thought it was 100% wonderful!

Second visit here. Great location at Gibralfaro with stunning view of City and bullring. Staff were friendly room very good. Free collection of spirits including a 12 year old single malt. Walkable into town along the city walls and great location for accessing most tourist attractions. Free parking which is a bonus as we were charged 16 Euros a night... More

We stayed at the Parador Gibralfaro for just one night, but will never forget it. It really is a wonderful hotel. We spent a few hours by the pool, looking out over the amazing sea and harbour view, had evening meal on the restaurant balcony overlooking the sea as the sun went down then ended the day sitting on our...

staying in fuengirola for 14 nights we thought we would go Malaga for a nice change we booked through booking .com arrived about 1pm we did request upper floor room but I would say if you book just for 1 night you certainly get the lesser view rooms instead of going up the stairs we went down from reception not...

My family and I stopped here to take in the views and enjoy a light lunch, as it was a place m yparents visiting over 30 years ago and stayed!!!. While I did not see an actual sleeping room, the grounds and public areas were beautifully maintained, clean and of high quality. We ate in the lower casual dining area,... More

We spent two nights here and loved it, peaceful and the best views from our room and the restaurant, we ate for 1 lunch and 1 evening meal, both superb along with the service, the service in the bar was very slow but we where not in a rush. we will return as very clean and relaxing.

We stayed at the hotel last November with friends and it was ok. Unlike most of the hotels we have stayed in, the staff here were very offhand, but the fabric of the hotel is great, with views to die for, so we booked again for October 2015. We were recently in Malaga with relatives and wanted to show them... More
