The hotel was comfortable and well appointed. The rooms spacious and clean. Wonderful views of the city and the pool much needed in August. The food and drinks were expensive as was the room service with hidden charges. The hotel internet was very patchy and we had to constantly keep re submitting pass words as it dropped out so frequently.... More

Last night of a two week Costa del sol vacation hopping hotels due to the huge demand those weeks...this visit could have been magical - what a terrific view over Malaga. Just stunning. However I had some issues with a few things...the hotel entrance area is a tourist hot spot and guides take groups up for group photos. I realize... More

We stayed here for 2 nights prior to flying home to UK. This Parador is small, up near the Castillio and unless you come in off the Autovia, very hard to find. We came via Malaga centro!! Its a nice enough place with its position overlooking Malaga (The Bull ring) & the port being its selling points. The staff are... More

We didn't stay here but ate at the restaurant on our last night in Malaga to enjoy the view. It was totally worth it. There was a bull fight happening when we got there and we heard the music and the cheers and even saw some of it. Ambiance at its best. The food was the best we had in... More

The Parador de Malaga Gibralfaro is situated at the top of a hill, adjacent to Castillo de Gibralfaro. The rooms are very comfortable and well furnished but stop short of luxury status. The views of the port and city of Malaga from my room and from the 3rd-floor restaurant were spectacular. I found the walk from the hotel to the... More

A beautiful hotel in an idyllic location that offers so much. The food was first class and the pool area clean and mostly peaceful. Unfortunately the level of service was not as should be expected, rude and abrupt, unhelpful and slow. We love Malaga and look forward to returning soon however we will definitely stay elsewhere.

Clean and comfortable rooms with amazing views over the city, roof top pool was a bonus. Food and drinks were expensive and some of the staff were quite abrupt and unhelpful. The walk down into town is really steep but a taxi back from the harbour was less than 10 euro

Had a pleasant time here; it's a great location. However, for the price they charge per night, the service is lacking. Staffing is thin on the ground. With around 40 rooms in the hotel generating 200 Euros a night on average each, I think that the hotel is short changing clients!

Located at one of the highest points in Malaga, but this means its quiet and very scenic. Will be honest and say I honestly think this is a little expensive for what you get, especially the restaurant which unless you book and arrive early, ie 8.30pm it is not easy to get an outside table unless they open the forecourt...

The hotel is located on a hill overlooking the city. The room had a little balcony were you could sit nicely. You also have perfect views from the restaurant (which is also nice at breakfast). It is quite a walk to the city, especially going back which is uphill. There is a busstop very nearby though which takes you directly... More
