Lovely setting surrounded by pine trees and a beautiful beach. Great sea views. Rooms are well appointed but a little noisy (tiled floors)! The staff were helpful and we liked the addition of having a kettle and tea bags in the room. (Being English - I usually take my own). There are good spa facilities - a warm indoor pool,... More

Excellent location, very nice, private quiet natural environment with a beautiful very long beach. Hotel is very clean and staff is very attentive but it needs a complet refurbishing and redecoration in order to adapt it to the current time. However I guess this is the best hotel in the area. The access to the beach from the hotel is... More

Generally I do not like the "luxury hotel on the sea with big pool" kind of place. It does sound good but when one gets there, often one founds itself (i) in the middle of nowhere, so in practice bound to remain inside the resort eating overpriced medium to low quality food, (ii) in a very crowded environment. Being surrounded... More

2 days spent here in this hacienda-style Parador has been a refreshing and relaxing experience. A fantastic location above the stunning beach makes this a must-do visit for those looking for a real escape. Nice pool, lovely pool-side restaurant, great views and stunning sunsets. A great place to recharge the batteries and rekindle those romances. And I thoroughly recommend a... More

We have been coming to this hotel every 2/3 years for about 20 years because its such a great location for exploring the Donana and bird-watching at El Rocio. We prefer the beach to the pool (although its a good pool) and climbing the steps back up from the beach makes you think you have deserved your lunch or dinner.... More

The label "parador" stands for quality and luxury in the SPanish vocabulary, so one has expectations when it comes to staying at one. After three days there I can sadly say I was happy to go, in spite of its gorgeous natural setting. This is mainly due to poor attention to detail and worse service. The food wasn't better than...

This parador is a very nice beach parador, in particular due to the beautiful beach it has. We were there in the beginning of June, and it was nearly deserted. The hotel is also in the national park, which is interesting. The hotel has also a spa and I gave my self a treat with a massage nearly every day... More

I'm having trouble with what I though of the Parador de Mazagon; the location is fantastic and the views - when you get them - stunning but I think this is where the problems start. The hotel does n't feel that news and things in design terms have definitely moved on since it was built. For example the pool has... More

I have not stayed at this parador, but have enjoyed several meals there. There is something inherently relaxing about this place, the smell of the pine trees, great views to the sea, and lovely grounds. The food is simple and tasty - not a gourmet experience, but well cooked and typical of the region. As other reviewers have noted the... More
