The town in itself is not very interesting. But it is outside of Jerez and easily accesed. Also it is on a steep hill with great views. Lots of people come up to the main square, in front of the Parador just to see the sunset. But the Parador has it all. In other words, you go to the hotel,... More

A truly memorable Parador in a stunning location in a beautiful "White Town" full of interest. I knew I had to have a room with balcony overlooking the spectacular view over the river to the South. I was not disappointed - a truly awe-inspiring panorama - it rivals Jaen & Siguenza in this. Dinner was better than expected - many... More

On a recent tour of the Cadiz area we stopped for a brief repast at the Parador de Arcos de la Frontera. The food was great but I was so impressed with the establishment in general that I did a brief tour and collected brochures, albeit in Spanish, but I had enough info I could link up later online in...

Ever since the first time I went to Arcos, I knew the next time I wanted to stay at the Parador and I was not disappointed! Whatever the difference in rooms is to get a balcony is well worth it. The rooms are nicely appointed but still with a very authentic feel. Really enjoyed drinks and tapas on the balcony... More

On a 7day cycling trip through the "white villages" this hotel was the top. Actually, literally, as it's perched on a cliff with amazing views! Don't miss the chance to watch the sunset from the terrace with a glass of cava - magical. We also love the "hidden" terrace on the top floor - no pool, but the most comfortable... More

This parador sits atop the white village of Arcos, facing the cathedral. The lounge/dinning room has dramatic views of the surrounding landscape. Unfortunately the dinning room is not open for dinner (they serve small dishes in the cafe) and parking is very difficult in the village.

Arcos de la Frontera is on the ancient route of the Almorávides y Almohades, in other words Moorish inhabitants who occupied and ruled most of Spain for 800 years and in this picturesque white washed hill town you can still see vestiges of the Arabic influence with an overlay of style contributed by the conquering Christians. We chose to stay... More

We lucked into this hotel at about 50% off (85 euro / night) when we decided to fill 6 days between Granada & Sevilla and booked at last minute in Granada and the Parador chain was having a 1 week sale. We started with 3 nights in Ronda and then 3 nights in Arcos. There are numerous restaurants within easy... More

Travelling the hill country of Spain in search of the often illusive white villages is a stimulating adventure in itself with many surprises in store for the dedicated pilgrim. This was the case for us when we stumbled upon the city of Arcos de la Frontera in general and the distinctive Parador in particular. On that first occasion we did... More

This is a quaint parador in the hill town country that appeals to those who like historic settings. It's a former royal residence that sits on the square by a old cathedral and bell tower. The common rooms are lovely, especially the center courtyard. There are interesting flamenco dresses as decorations around the hallways, and a unique tile wall piece... More
