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

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.

Arcos de la Frontera is on top of a hill, and the Parador is at the top of the town - result is wonderful views, but a steep and narrow drive up, with problems to park. Having said that, we managed OK (it was February, so fairly quiet) and got a parking space in the square opposite the Parador. You... More

you reach this hotel by very narrow (fold in your side mirrors) where you are met by an official tweeting his whistle and shouting complete. So I jumped out to register leaving husband in car being berated by same official. I met with hotel staff who recommended to exit parking lot, drive downhill and then trudge back up bearing luggage.... More

This Parador is superb, just add a small touch and book a room with a balcony it is well worth it, we had room 9. As usual the Parador is a well run hotel very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful, they do have a command of English even if you do not have a lot of Spanish.... More

Great location on top of the hill with fantastic views and back patio overlooking the valley. It was challenging to figure out how to get to the top of the town as the GPS wanted to take us a way that was impossible. As it was we had to turn the mirrors in on our small compact car and pray...

In Parador Arcos de la Frontera we had booked two nights with a Gastro Pack, i.e. half board, in order to celebrate my wife’s 70 years birthday. On arrival we were informed that lunch/dinner would be served in the cafeteria only. The cafeteria had no table cloth and the food served for lunch/dinner was very average. On time of booking...

The view, small town and proximity to the park for hiking are worth the visit. Unfortunately, I stayed in 4 Parador hotels during a 3 week trip to Spain and had two encounters with bed bugs, this one was the worst. I had bits all over my body - head, neck, arms hands, legs, feet, etc. I lost count at... More

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
