Surrounded by pines, the Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro stands atop Mount Gibralfaro opposite the Alcazaba (Citadel), with views of the bay and city of Malaga from a unique perspective. The common areas, guest rooms and rooftop swimming pool offer beautiful views of the town and sea. Here you will enjoy traditional Andalusian culinary offerings, including exquisite Málaga-style fried fish. In Málaga, you won't want to miss the Pablo Ruíz Picasso Foundation Birthplace Museum, where you will discover more than 230 works by the painter. The hotel, built out of stone next to Gibralfaro Castle, is the ideal location for visiting the city and enjoying sports such as golf and tennis at the nearby Parador del Golf. Málaga and its surrounding area are filled with light and beauty, offering the perfect vantage point overlooking the Mediterranean, a wonderful experience in which warm temperatures and the joy of Andalusia are assured.

What did we like about this place... it's a long list! Parador de Malaga Gibralfaro has a wonderful position high above the city and the harbour looking out to sea and is a nice old building with graceful stone arches clad in bougainvillea. The balconies have a view to die for.

You can either get here by bus, taxi....or walk up the pedestrian walkway/steps via the Castle. Which ever way, you will be rewarded by a great view down across the city and port and the prospect of a good pit stop at this parador. The terrace is ideal on a sunny, warm

The Spanish paradors are always wonderful properties. Our room was comfortable. The service is so so, and the restaurant is also so so. Views are great. People are very friendly. Malaga isn't a super interesting place, but the best gateway into Andalusia, which was our primary

Not all rooms have a sea view or in fact a balcony. The sea view will be limited in my opinion as you looking over the harbour, the Cathedral view is however amazing. Very good hotel and the views are good but the service is better
