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

This Parador is absolutely beautiful. The landscaping and views are fantastic, the restaurant is delicious and the walk down to town and back up guarantees you will have a great appetite! Ask for a room on the third or fourth floor, as the views are best and they have balconies.. Pool on the roof is a good size with lounge... More

We were so pleased with this hotel. The view was amazing - we enjoyed the natural beauty and tranquility of the property and hillside path into town. The staff was extremely helpful - often went above and beyond. Our room was quite large by Europe's standards; my adult daughter commented frequently how comfortable she was in the fold-out couch. (We... More

This parador is lovely, looking out over Malaga. We stayed 1 night on arrival in Andalucia and changed plans so we could stay another night at the end of our holiday. You can walk down the hill through the gardens to the centre of town or enjoy the view from the terrace. Our room had a small balcony. My only... More

Altho we had a superior room the first night, as the Parador was full we had to be moved to a standard room the 2nd night. Altho nothing wrong with the... More

We spent 3 nights at the Parador de Malaga. The public areas of the hotel and the views are really beautiful. The room was spacious enough with a nice private terrace. But the room furniture was cheap and unattractive when it was new and that was long ago. It was hard to shower without getting water on the floor as... More

Had an amazing experience here. The service was amazing and the room had an awesome view of the city. The swimming pool has an even better view of the city. I would definitely recommend this hotel to couples and family's staying in malaga.
