I stayed here for two nights and I upgraded upon arrival to a room with a terrace for an extra 31 Euros a night. So glad I did as the views were stunning and the breezes meant that despite the intense heat of the town I could keep cool on my terrace and read in peace. I could also watch the birds float on the thermal air drafts as the hotel is on the cliff edge.
I managed to drive up to the old square & park outside even though I had a Mercedes A Class rental car (but the electrically retractable wing mirrors came into their own for the last gateway). Parking is free with a permit from the Parador.
The courtyard has a Moorish feel but as smoking is allowed in there I didn't linger. There is a restaurant around the corner (right out of the hotel & second right) with a similar courtyard. It serves the best gazpacho I've ever had.
There's not that much to see in Arcos - just go there to relax, wander the old whitewashed town, potter in the churches and enjoy the peace.

Many of the rooms overlook a splendid landscape filled with art, nature and history. The flowery tiling enlivers the wood of the furniture and the ochre of the terraces. ... more less
