The Parador is a gr8 place to stay if u want to relax and enjoy something different . A truly unique experience. The rooms very clean, comfortable and the view from the terrace was amazing. We also had dinner at the Parador and it was top notch.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a terrace. Even though it's slightly more expensive, it is worth it.

You must stay here if you can as the building and setting are amazing. Have a drink on the terrace and take in the views. Parking here is free (unlike the other paradors we stayed in) and you can get the car right to the front door to drop luggage. Clean, comfortable room and a fantastic view even though we had one of the small windows. Seville is an easy drive away.

Much has been said about the pluses but a couple of things that could be improved:

Dinner (we were on 2 nights half board) - If only the food matched the surroundings! Our expectations were also high as we'd come from the Ronda Parador where we'd had a very tasty meal. When we asked to sit at a different table to the one we were shown the first night (next to the kitchen door) we felt we were being a nuisance.

Be aware the swimming pool does not open till mid May. We hadn't noticed that anywhere before booking. The weather was hot and the pool and surrounding areas are gorgeous. We were not the only ones expecting it to be open and a few people settled for sunbathing.

Carmona is a pretty little town and the Parador is situated on the edge of the town with amazing far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Our room and bathroom were spacious and furnished in a traditional style. We enjoyed the wonderful views from our balcony. it was worth the expense just to have that view! The swimming pool looked lovely but opened the next day for the summer. The restaurant was well worth it, lovely food but they failed to replenish the sweet buffet and also the breakfast buffet in the morning which is a little unusual. The town can been seen in a morning and we couldn't find any nice restaurants but didn't try too hard as we had decided on eating at the Parador.

Although this parador is a bit out of the way from the usual tourist stops we loved it. The views were breath taking and the whole experience brought relaxation to a weary travel group. The breakfast was lovely. If you need WI-FI you have to work hard at finding the right spot in the lobby but everyone needs a break from the tech world once in a while. Highly recommend.

Hotel is hidden behind a fortress wall, but magical and dramatic entrance to modern (1976) hotel. Completed in 1992 I believe, but you would not know it for ambiance. Majestic location above fertile plain. Decorating was extremely attractive in public areas. Although, the prettiest room was usually locked.
Goats were being herded below to different fields and then led back to corrals. They bunched up behind the farmer, some stopping to munch, then running to catch up, or be herded by dog.
Agree with indifferent service from front desk to restaurant. Food average, though not cheap. Decent wine list.
Suggest they start breakfast earlier as most clients were touring and anxious to start their day.

The hotel is straightforward to find - well signposted. As you drive through the historic gateway into the courtyard / car park you feel you've come somewhere special. The rooms were beautiful with fabulous views across the plains - you're so high up. There is a lovely mosaic tiled courtyard with a fountain where you can sit and have a drink and take in the atmosphere.
We ate in the restaurant both nights as a lot of the local places were closed over the Easter weekend (something we hadn't expected). The menu was very good with an excellent buffet table for desserts. The dining room was quite an amazing room - check out other peoples' photos. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful.
Although this hotel was well out of usual price range, it was a wondederful treat for a special occasion and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone.

Great hotel, lovely restaurant stunning views of countryside in a really historic town. The restaurant was great and good value - pity the service in the bar beforehand was poor. Reception staff were very helpful. Great place to stay if you don't want to be in the middle of Seville which only took us 40 mins by car to the Centre.
