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

I totally endorse Sambracitan after reading Vincent B we were very disappointed we had chosen this as one of our Paradors infact our first so it was with trepidation we drove to it.Point to make is that the Parador should be signed from the outskirts of the village our friends came along later and they had difficulty finding there way,once...

After reading the review by Vincent B, I was not looking forward to this Parador. Silly really, it was very good. The approach is a little difficult but my car fitted through the arched entry to the square quite easily. Then it started. Great reception, very friendly and very helpful. Dining room staff were excellent. Location, at the top of... More

We stayed here last week and loved it. Yes the drive up was hairy, and car parking can be a challenge, but for us it was worth it. We found all of the staff friendly and very helpful. They offered to carry our bags to and from the car and helped us carry our bags to our room. We could... More

We spent a night at the Parador and found it very unique. The room is furnished with authentic old furniture and the bath is modern. A great combination. But what is amazing is the balcony. We had a room with balcony facing the valley. Our balcony was literally built on the cliff and the views were spectacular. I think you... More

We were amazed to see how anyone could like this place. Horrible to get to by car-2" clearance-one way-hills. Impossible to access from East-GPS failed. Have to drive completely around town and access from other side. Small parking lot. Lucked into space but could not move car because never get another.5 Euros a day and you have to get a... More

The cultural crossbreeding of the Casa del Corregidor displays an andalusian character, with latticework and a courtyard.
