It is more a hotel built on a ruin of castle instead of old parador conversion. However its interior and the ruins made me feel like staying in a castle. Also its services, breakfast buffet and room interiors are definitely alot more than 4star hotel. We had really good rest include late night snack and drink at terrace with beautiful... More

Stayed here for three nights as part of a Titan tour in June 2014. The position of this Parador, on top of the hill overlooking Lorca, means that superb views are seen from virtually every point. A modern but tastefully designed hotel built on an archaeological site which has and is undergoing continuing development makes for a fascinating stay. Food... More

We stayed at the hotel for an over 55's package which was after the Easter rush so inexpensive and quiet. Few people staying at the hotel although there were some 'first Communion' functions which did not disturb us at all. The staff were very helpful and English spoken in the absence of our Spanish. We were introduced to information about... More

Please Ignore any negative comments about this Hotel. It is a revelation in every respect. We live only 30 minutes from the hotel, and have seen it being built for nearly 10 years. We now totally understand why. The discovery of archeological ruins meant that the hotel plans had to constantly be revised. They are amazing. The fusion of old... More

the parador only has relatively few rooms but they are beautiful as you would expect. a bit of a pain to find as some of the road signs seem to be missing or are misleading. Generally a lovely hotel . it also has a very nice swimming pool.

We stayed at this parador for three nights in May. We ate our meals at the parador, too. This is what we liked about the Parador at Lorca: 1. Beautifully styled -- and almost brand new (dedication in 2012 by the Queen of Spain). 2. Junior suite is spacious. 3. Breakfast buffet is wonderful -- a wonderful assortment of local... More

We spent a night here on the way to Granada. What a stunning hotel with stunning views. Our room was simply furnished. Exceptionally clean and most comfortable. The entire hotel is stylish and relaxing. I think it rates as one of the best hotels we have stayed at. Breakfast was superb with a very wide choice. Lunch was a different... More

We used to pass under this castle on the motorway and always wondered what it was like inside, so finding it is now a parador we decided to stay overnight. It is well signed from the motorway. The conversion of the ruins of the castle to a parador has been done sympathetically. The accommodation is actually all in a new... More

A stunning hotel perched among the ruins of a hilltop castle looking down on the old town of Lorca. It was very well signposted as soon as we got off the motorway into Lorca so we had no difficulty finding our way. There's plenty of (free) parking for hotel residents behind the hotel and space to park outside reception temporarily... More
