Stayed here one night as part of a tour. Superb elevated position overlooking the town, great architecture. A really good meal in the restaurant. Very welcoming pool. Easy car parking and pleasant room. Well worth a visit.

Poor hardware, poor services! Poor furniture ( I mean old and poor, not like many other parador hotels we have stayed... Old but in good shape and style). Wifi does not work in room and many public areas. This is not acceptable. Staff, from receptionist to bartender are not showing hospitality. The view from hotel is nice.

Another Parador, another memorable stay. The rooms were comfortable, the dinner excellent and the staff beautifully trained. Great breakfast. This sits precipitously overlooking the surrounding countryside, an eagle's eye view. Amazing architecture and a good terrace for gin and tonic

The location and views are fantastic and our daughters enjoyed staying in 'a castle' but the service and facilities did not live up to expectations of a parador. Firstly, we had ants crawling out from between the tiles in the bathroom wall, to which the staff simply responded by giving us a can of mosquito spray - not great for... More

This parador is not, in fact, an extension of, nor is it in any way physically connected to, the Castillo De Santa Catalina beside it. If you are expecting to stay in an historic castle, note that this building was constructed in 1968 and is an entirely separate building. Once you realize this, the effect is more Disneyland than Medieval.... More

My partner and I stayed for one night in June as a mid week treat whilst holidaying in the Costa Del Sol. We have stayed in two other Paradors previously and this is our favourite so far. With a castle attached, fabulous views, relaxing pool and a great restaurant we had plenty to discover. I would recommend room 13 as... More

They were immensely impressed with the hotel which sits on a very hill ridge overlooking the town with fantastic views. The rooms were fantastic and great views from... More

This hotel has a stunning view, and we had a great welcome by the frontdesk staff and the man that checked us in was a absolute gem! But that was about all that was positive. The room was old and worn and we had one of the better rooms.We had dinner in the restaurant andmany mistakes where made and it... More

Stayed in this parador for three nights and enjoyed it very much. The staff was so friendly and kind. Room with balcony lovely and the swimming pool very nice. We had dinner in the hotel every night and the food was excellent.
