We were given the option of upgrading to a suite for an additional 40 euros. We are so happy we did! How many times in your life do you stay in a castle?? Our suite (2 stories) was in one of the turrets overlooking all of the town on two sides. It was immaculate, with fresh flowers in the living... More

We stopped here as an overnight stop on the way back home from southern Spain . Alcaniz hasn't much to offer , the Parador is it. Our room had lovely views BUT the sound proofing is awful we could hear the couple in the next room arguing certainly off putting ..had a nice meal in the restaurant ... Why oh... More

We stayed during the time of a festival with a medieval market, The staff encouraged us to go and we are glad we did. There is a historic church on the premises which is open for tours in the late morning. Our room had a beautiful view of the town. Sparkly new paint and a spacious bathroom make you feel... More

Our second stay in a parador - this was gorgeous. Super room and great dinner and breakfast. Beautiful central courtyard and lovely friendly staff. Very peaceful and super views of surrounding countryside.

Very good standard. We had a delux double on a corner on the third floor. The bed was excellent and so was the room. We also ate at the restaurant and found the food and service superb. If you are into staying at castle hotels then go here.

This castle on the hill is special. The views are remarkable, the few rooms make you feel special to be able to stay, and the food was excellent. Just not that many places where you can see frescoes on the walls from the Crusade time.

We stayed for 2 nights at Parador Alcaniz in November 2014. This is a lovely hotel with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The food in the restaurant was very good. I was most impressed however with the helpfulness of the staff in the reception area of the hotel. My sunglasses had broken and I asked the staff on the... More

We stayed at the Paradores Alcaniz in December 2014. If you enjoy staying in a castle, this is an excellent choice! It sits on top of the mountain in the city. The service, rooms, bar, and view were excellent! Staff were friendly, and the rooms were very comfortable. The views out over the city and surrounding area was outstanding. The... More

Our least favourite Parador to date. The staff seemed unhappy with their situation and service was not with a smile. The evening meal was disappointing, so much so that we decided to give breakfast a miss. The building is spectacular as you would expect, but the religious part of the complex was only open at certain times which we missed.... More

Stayed at 5 Paradors over the past 8 weeks and this was by far the best in terms of the people, their attitudes and attention to detail. The public areas are typically historic and the bar / dining room standouts for interior decoration. Menu in bar and restaurant extensive, tapas or racione sizes available in bar. Fixed menus good if... More
