Since we got home we have been looking at photos of the view from this hotel and from our room and can't believe we were lucky enough to stay there! We booked - having read the reviews- a superior room with a balcony and at first regretted it because the weather was rainy and windy in the evening. However,in the... More

Booked to stay here but when I arrived I upgraded. A balcony is a must as the views are spectacular!! Restaurant food was very good and reasonable. Room lovely and clean. Even the mini bar had reasonable prices which is unusual!

Nice little hotel on the main square of the village, up on a hill. Please be aware that if you come by car - like 99 % of the clients - there are no parking slot for you !! There is no parking slot for the hotel and the clients need to try to find a parking on the public... More

My wife and I were midway through a 24-day driving trip through Portugal and Spain and had just spent two lovely days in Seville. We wanted to end the last day of April at the Parador Arcos de la Frontera, but decided to take a side trip to see Cadiz on the Atlantic Ocean where we stopped for lunch. It's... More

We stayed one night during our roundtrip in this amazing parador, located at the heart of the historic centre of Arcos de la Frontera. We booked a room with a balcony, from which you had a breathtaking view on the surroundings. The beautiful, spacious, clean room and bathroom and superfriendly staff made us feel right at home. At night we... More

If you are renting a car, prepare for a challenge to get here. The streets are incredibly narrow. If you escape this unfazed, you are in for a treat. The rooms are very nice, the showers have incredible water pressure, the breakfast buffet is excellent and the views are beyond belief. Our group came on a tour bus, so we... More

A 2 night break at this Parador. Wonderful views, comfortable room with a balcony. Slept well. Yes the journey to the Parador is a challenge and equally challenging getting back out of the Old, but well worth it. The streets were meant for donkeys and carts, not cars! Really good tapas bars in the vicinity to try, evening meal in... More

Situated in the definate middle of the old city. If you hate driving steep, narrow streets, you might consider parking down-town, and hire a taxi for the last 1-2 kilometers. The hotel itself is like most Paradors: an old building made into something reasonably habitable, with its own charm. Normally you lack for nothing, unless you favour steel, chrome and... More

This is a fabulous location. Reception and restaurant have top service, excellent food. Rooms just good. If you go in spring or autumn you do not need ar conditioning. Getting there is difficult because of very narrow streets if you have a wide vehicle. Beware of parking tickets, because they are very strict!
