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

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
