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!

The Parador - Arcos de la Frontera is on top of a hill and is superb and book a room with a balcony it is well worth it The result is breath-taking views. The meal we had in the evening was very good and typical local cuisine. It is a well-run hotel very clean and the staff very friendly /... More

When we arrived in Arcos de la Frontera we managed to get a parking spot in front of the hotel when we told them that we were staying at the Parador. The parking there is free overnight from 6 pm. to 9 am. after which time you must buy a ticket in the machine and leave this displayed in your... More

We had hired a BMW which we regretted when we saw the road we had to navigate thru to get to the Parador. It was very narrow and scary. Once we got there we managed to park right outside and the Hotel provided us with a parking permit. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room which looked over the... More

This was our first parador of a four parador trip. Arcos Parador was smaller than we expected them to generally be, but the welcome, like all of the paradors was efficient and friendly. The old building perched on the village square and clinging precipitously to the cliff high above a river valley, is well restored and renovated internally and the... More

Friendly staff, lovely beds, great shower, good food, pretty inner courtyard, but the best part is sitting in the picture window over the cliffside with a glass of sherry and a bowl of almonds, watching the sun go down over the beautiful countryside below.
