I've been meaning to write a review on this parador. We stayed there around 21st March and thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. We had two rooms for our stay - one room where we paid extra for a balcony and view and one room overlooking the carpark. The carpark room did also have views of the church top and so was far better than simply a carpark view. The view from the room with the balcony was simply divine. We loved this hotel because it's slightly older interior gave it character. Sure, the shutter handles were a bit 'wobbly' and the shutters themselves were made before 2013 but this was a drawcard for us, not a detriment. The bed was very good and the linen spotless. The walls were immaculate. The room was very very clean. The loo in the room with the balcony had the greatest view in the world. It became very windy outside but we were very snug in our rooms. The staff were friendly and efficient and eating at the restaurant was also a very comfortable and pleasant experience. Breakfast was expensive for the whole breakfast as it wasn't included for us, but it was possible to order a part breakfast and pay accordingly. Put it this way, the following night we stayed at the parador Ronda which is a fine and luxurious hotel but my preference is definitely for the parador Arcos. The drive up to the carpark outside the hotel is steep and somewhat narrow but no real issue for a small to medium car. At times it is wide enough for only one vehicle but if either vehicle pulls to the side and waits there is no real drama. I was a bit scared off by the advice given on parking at the bottom and catching a cab up to hotels nearby the parador but it is quite easy to drive to the carpark beside the parador. There are a couple of other hotels near the parador that are cheaper and in the end I didn't choose them because of the driving aspect whereas in reality if you parked beside the parador, the walk to these other hotels is very quick and easy. The cost of the parking is also very reasonable. Having said that I have no regrets about choosing the parador instead of the other two nearby and on a repeat journey would choose the parador. Out of four hotels in Andalucía, it was my favourite.
