This is one of the relatively newer Paradors and never fails to meet expectations, provided you know what to expect. The two downsides are, firstly, that it is unlikely you will find a parking place near Reception and, secondly you must not expect fast bar service, wherever you decide to sit.
That said, the rooms are excellent, all overlooking Malaga and it's harbour. Each room has a small balcony, air conditioning and a well equipped bathroom.
The restaurant and it's terrace also overlooks the City and harbour. Dinner was probably the best we have had in a Parador: starters of six different tapas (sardines on toast, Iberian ham on toast, cold soup, fried fish, etc) followed by ( for my wife) chickpea stew with clams and ( for me) steak. The Rioja was good as was the chocolate fondant for pudding.
The views around the Parador are great, from the north looking down onto the Bullring to the west via the TownHall, Cathedral and Gibralfaro Castle.
The staff are very good in the restaurant, OK at Reception and overworked in the bar. This is not an inexpensive place to stay, expect to pay approx 200 euros for half board for two per day.
