We were so disappointed with this Parador that we did what we have never done before: we booked out after one night although we were originally booked for three. This is a new hotel, which is already beginning to show many signs of wear and tear. The blinds in our room were coming away from their frames and all night the lighthouse shone - intermittently - into the room despite both blinds being down. On our balcony, there were marks of the rain and sea salt coming through form the floor above and discolouring the overhang, while the ceiling above the lavatory was also showing signs of water damage. The walls had evidence of the blood of former guests who had been bitten by mosquitoes who paid the ultimate price! The lighting was a nightmare and several of the complicated switches just did not work. The restaurant had so limited a menu (cod, tuna, pork and pork) that we did not eat there and breakfast was slow and sloppily served. But the biggest disappointment was the spa. I was convalescing from an operation and had hoped to use this to relax - and above all to use the steam room to help my lungs which had reacted badly to the anaesthetic. When we went to find out about the spa, the two girls attending it were, at best surly. They said the steam room was not working (no apology) and that we could not book a visit - although we were there! We had to go back to our rooms and ring them up!!! Equally, there is no way that a mere 90 minutes is value for money when the charge was 15 Euros! However, it was the rude way in which this was communicated to us that really upset us. When we did book out early, the greatest sadness was that the reception staff didn't seem surprised and there was another couple doing the same thing - and much more polemically than we did. It is so sad - we loved the old Cadiz Parador - why, oh why, have they ruined it?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A new Parador for a new century. A new building representing a new, updated architecture, in which light, space and noble materials are key elements, with avant-garde lines in which the most diverse shapes and materials - wood, marble, steel, stone and glass - are combined to give this new icon of contemporary architecture its shape. Light invades all corners, and the ocean turns into the horizon, from which any spot of the new Parador can be seen. Modern and warm rooms, with impressive terraces flying over the city and the Ocean. The swimming pool and Spa area is located on the second floor. Here, guests can enjoy the best panoramic views onto the bay of Cádiz ... more less
