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

The location is superb, the bedrooms a good size and the balconies excellent, and there is good parking. The terrace is lovely although the service is slow (not the fault of the the waitress but there was only one and she was struggling with the workload). However the rooms need a make over and appear tried. The breakfast was overpriced... More

Let's start with Malaga as a weekend break destination, BRILLIANT! We recently had a fabulous relaxing weekend in Malaga and we would recommend it as a go to destination for. Short city break.

Have visited this Parador several times over the last 10 years and for location it's hard to beat. From the large terrace there are stunning views in both directions along the coast and a gentle him from the working port below. I travelled with 2 friends on this occasion and I had booked all 3 rooms (6 nights between us... More

Very nice hotel situated high above Malaga with views over the city to your right and the port and the bull ring to your left. The port and Mariner bustles with shops and restaurants. The hotel is worthy of the 4 star rating. Good size rooms well appointed most have the views described previously. The restaurant is good with a... More

My mum and I stayed here for a week mid June. As others have said the hotel has the most incredible views. From the terraces you can see the castle next to the hotel and pretty much the whole of Malaga, the port and sea laid out in front of you - it's like an enormous picture. It's very quiet... More
