We visited as a group of 6 in January for a short midweek break. We were delighted to find that the three rooms we had booked were situated next to each other on the same floor - the rooms had fantastic views across Malaga looking down towards the town and thankfully for our southwest facing balcony we could sit and...

Fantastic views of Malaga from all areas of the parador. Staff friendly and professional. Communal areas welcoming and relaxing. Walking down into Malaga very pleasant but more often took taxi or bus.

Clean but very plain rooms with no luxury or nice touches. The restaurant staff need some serious training. The buffet breakfast constantly ran out of dishes, which sometimes took almost a hour to replenish. No body in charge and waitors wandering around in slo mo. Food good and service better in the evening, but again, training needed. Fingers in the...

As everyone says views are great but there's more to it than that. Great hotel and staff, relaxed friendly staff. The walk into Malaga old town is only about 20 minutes and well worth it. We also sampled the hotel restaurant which was nice.

Looking down on the city with incredible views and as always nice comfortable rooms. However compared with many other paradoxes this one does not have many historical features. We arrived after the restaurant closed but the bar meals were perfectly adequate

For a relaxing and quiet stay then try this Parador. The views are stunning from the room balcony to the terraces. Some fixtures in the rooms are quite tired, but every where is spotlessly clean. Good selection at breakfast from the restaurant, which has excellent views of Malaga. The Parador is positioned by the castle on top of the hill,...

A poor small room without good view and with 1 star furnitures ! And a terrible wifi. But a good restaurant. We were really disappointed for the price of a Parador. And we had a problem to book with booking and we have been obliges to pay for a second breakfast

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we can improve the service at the Parador as much as possible. All our rooms are very similar and they are around 30 meters. Its the first time we read about small rooms. And they have, all of them, a terrace. We are sorry that we did...

Great room with balcony and view over Malaga and port area, friendly and helpful staff as you would expect from a Parador. Rooms are not overlooked, so you can enjoy the view all day and night. Spacious rooms and immaculately clean. One small problem, floors are not quite soundproofed, so you can hear 'elephants' walking about overhead, try to get...

A really good hotel with parking on site. Our room was on the lowest level yet still had amazing views from our balcony with had a table and 2 chairs. Breakfast was great and all the staff were very friendly and able to speak to us in English. The room was also excellent in size and furniture. Would definitely return....

Good location with excellent views over the harbour and city. The hotel was well maintained, the staff were helpful and our room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant menu would be improved if it were to include a "dish of the day" which would improve the variety.
