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

We love this hotel, this town, and in the reception: Encarnacion, is the most gentle, friendly and helpfull person that you can meet. The location is amaizing, be sure to reserve a room in a floor with balcony. is worthed every coin. The sunset and sunrise are amazing from there, because the hotel is in the top of the cliff....

We spent one night here on our way between Granada and Seville, and it was a wonderful stay. This parador has so much character. Our room and bath were both spacious and the views from the balcony were amazing. There is a charming inside courtyard and outdoor terraces as well, for sitting and relaxing with a drink or a book.... More

Although difficult to find, been with sat nav, it is well worth the journey. Our room was spacious and had beautiful wooden shutters which opened on to a balcony overlooking the square. Even though we only stayed one night, we would definitely return. Staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. There is a roof terrace, but when we went in early... More

This hotel is amazing. It is perched on the edge of the cliffs looking over the entire region. Our room had a large balcony that was perfect for early mornings or late afternoons. The room was very large and spotless. The hotel restaurant was excellent. Breakfast came with our room rate and it was very complete with a wide variety... More

We spent only one night in Arcos after leaving Ronda and heading to Sevilla. Arcos is quite an amazing place perched on a long narrow ridge. We had some good advice and parked our car in the very nice central parking garage and then took a short taxi ride to the Parador. The streets get very narrow and difficult to... More

By a strange quirk of fate we had been allocated the same room previously used around 10 years ago on one of our first visits to Arcos. Have stayed in other terrace rooms but this was like coming back to a very familiar place and of course knowing immediately what to expect. And we had a lovely 2 nights with... More

This was the last parador of our trip; I believe we stayed in seven of them. It wasn't one of my favorites, but I did like it. The general ambiance was really nice; apparently I enjoy feeling like a local magistrate of old. The drive up the winding, narrow streets was slightly nerve-racking; my husband, the driver, was never worried... More
