“Fantastic hotel with great atmosphere”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

This hotel was great. We stayed in a superior room, room 223 which was great as it was huge, quiet and had a massive terrace on corner with views of city and gorge. The location of the hotel is perfect, right in the middle of everything. The free wifi in rooms was good. The rooms and bathroom were large. It wasn't the most modern of rooms but still really nice and bright and clean with charm and was much better than I thought from looking at photos. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful. Ronda itself is fantastic, 2 nights was not enough. The hotel is much cheaper on Sundays and weekdays than Saturdays, making it even better value for money. I would highly recommend this place.

We expected a great deal of this hotel and in terms of facility, location and staff we were not disappointed. Our room overlooked the gorge and the old town and we could watch the changes in the light and shadow from a large balcony. In that sense, and in the central location of the hotel - between the Plaza del toros and the old town - we were completely happy. The breakfast is a decent one...if there is one thing that disappoints, it is the dining room which - at dinner time - looked dingy and smelled institutional. But there are many restaurants nearby to chose from. I would definitely rebook here on any return to Ronda.

If you are looking for a lovely clean hotel with plenty of facilities right in the heart of Ronda then this hotel has to be on your short list. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed, clean and most offer very good views with a balcony to sit on. The pool area is small but very nice setting with plenty of sun loungers. Parking is availabe for a cost and is right under the hotel so no long treck with your bags. Resteraunt has fantastic views and food that would accommodate most palates, however food and service is average and there lies the rub. The hotel is perfect in nearly all regards but staff are bland and as a result its a little lacking in atmosphere. Despite this however it should not be overlooked. Next visit we will be trying a smaller hotel.

the hotel is very central and well situated -staff are excellent and nothing was too much trouble - our room over looked the mountains and the view was breathtaking. The breakfast was a buffet style with hot and cold food and excellent. Although there are cheaper hotels in Ronda the quality of the service and the location was more than worth the higher price - you get what you pay for folks - we will definitely return to the Parador De Ronda.

Room Tip: try and get a room with views to the mountains - our room was 214 and excellent

Sweeping views is what characterises this hotel. The location of the hotel perched on the edge of the gorge and overlooking the lush valley has a view that money can never buy. Ronda is one of the most charming places we had visited in Andalucian region with stunning views of the valleys, white washed villages, quaint shops and beautiful restaurants. The place, though small, has so much character that one feels a day or two will never do justice. The rooms are quite comfortable, though not lavish, however the Parador scores all the brownie points with the location and the unparalled views.

The hotel itself seems a bit run down, but the view from our room was unbeatable. We had reserved a double room with an extra bed, and were so fortunate to get a corner room on the first floor facing the mountains & fields with two balconies - excellent for a glass of chilled wine after a long drive up the mountain. The extra bed wasn't made when we arrived, but when we returned for dinner it was all set up with extra towel etc.
Really nice room and great bathroom. VERY central - right next to the bull ring. Good parking facility in the basement, but rather pricy at 22 euros per night.
We had looked very much forward to trying the pool on the edge of the cliff, but unfortunately it was rather windy and not pool weather when we were there. I would imagine though that the pool is fantastic when the weather is nice.
In the evening we had dinner at the hotel restaurant. All the waiters were very professional. Perhaps not the chattiest waiters in the world, but fairly attentive and the food was really good (apart from the hair I found in my potatoes...). Nice wine!
Breakfast buffet was also very good.
Overall we were very happy with our stay at Parador and can highly recommend staying here.
