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!

My husband and I stayed here for my birthday weekend. It was a great weekend getaway, very relaxing. We loved hanging out in the court yard during our free time playing some games we brought, reading, or having some coffee. Our room was wonderful with three patios allowing us to open them all up and feel like we were outside.... More

What more can a traveller ask for. This parador was tops in all categories. When we arrived and parked at the reception entrance, the receptionist came out with a parking permit (for which we paid a small amount per day) and helped with our luggage. Check in was easy and the room was comfortable. I walk with a walker and... More

Considering that you are staying in a building which was built in the 15th century, you have to accept that not all details can be as those in a modern concrete-and-glass hotel. The reason for going to a Parador is to to breathe and inhale history, to walk over stones trodden by tens of generations, not to demand perfect wifi... More

Fantastic castle within Zafra-the rooms are huge and the internal courtyard is where you want to spend the rest of your life. As very often with the Paradores, some of the furnishings might be slightly worn out and the restaurant prices out of this planet but who cares when the setting is so enchanted? Nice swimming pool too. Highly recommended.
