As other reviewers have said, this is a stunning hotel in a castle built in the 1450s. If you are staying or visiting Zafra this is a must. After entering the parador you walk through into a stunning open air courtyard with a fountain the middle . The room are well appointed and comfortable. As with all paradors the breakfast... More

The town of Zafra is beautifull but the Parador is amazing. Very good restaurant.The staff speak little English but it caused no problem. Lovely swimming pool. The central area for coffee and snacks and meals is just beautiful

Only spent a day at Zafra but, this parador made wish I had booked a few extra days to enjoy it. The building itself is a must see in Zafra. The city and people are nice and the food is good. Regarding facilities, bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was average.

Historic building with an exceptional courtyard restaurant. Outdoor pool with changing facilities. The "twin bedded" (adjacent beds) are more spacious than the doubles. Our standard room was lovely and had a small balcony overlooking the ancient square. Very comfortable bed. Corridors furnished with antiques befitting its history, making the place quite atmospheric. Parking is in the square at the front... More

A true castle...this is the life! Carefully restored to its glorious present condition. Large and well decorated, this is the place of dreams. The entire town is a jewel. All of Extremadura and all of its paradors are experiences not to be missed. All rooms are different, of course, but they're all fantastic. You will marvel at this place.

Arriving in Zafra the parador can be found in the centre of this lovely town. Parking for a fee can be found just outside, although this was difficult for us as we found that a party for 100+ had taken over the hotel. On arrival and for the next few hours all communal space inside and out was busy with... More

This is an exceptional place to stay in an exceptional historic town. The staff could not be more helpful, and the atmosphere of tranquillity in the 15th century castle is wonderful. The 2 rooms we stayed in were really different (one was a turret room with amazing shape, the 2nd was along from this with 2 sizeable private terraces). Furnishings... More

Discovering Zafra has been a real joy, but staying in a 14th Century Castle has added to the fun. The Hotel was not easy to find but the reception was friendly and welcoming. Parking was extra but was right outside the door. The courtyard for drinks, coffee, reading or snoozing was very pleasant although when it started to rain it... More

Another safe bet of Paradores. Super comfortable room, excellent service and a setting that is unique. On top of that, it is well located in historic Zafra. Bar and restaurant provide the excellent food that Paradores customers are used to enjoy. Will not disappoint at all!
