The Parador de Granada is truly spectacular. The view of the Alhambra which it offers from its rooms, breakfast area and general areas is breath taking and far better than you'll get from any other spot in the city. The rooms themselves are also very comfortable and the building itself is a landmark worth exploring. Never have I stayed in such a beautiful and unique accommodation.
Unfortunately an amazing experience was ruined when upon checking out when we went to collect our vehicle only to find it parked up against a wall with scratches down the side to the wing mirrors and body of the vehicle. The Parador require all car keys to be left with reception during your stay so they can move cars as needed however to see our (hire) vehicle treated with such little care was a shock. The rudeness of staff following was even more so.
Whilst a beautiful place to stay the Parador de Granada charges 5 star prices for the experience. To have our vehicle damaged then a rude reception staff member ordering us around, talking in spanish for extended periods to his manager in our presence - when he'd previously demonstrated he spoke fluent english - despite our polite requests otherwise and then claiming at my partner was lying and he hadn't damaged the car was disappointing. Being 6 months pregnant at the time I found this incredibly stressful and upsetting with only one lovely receptionist showing any kindness or sympathy to our situation.
A disappointing end to what had been an amazing visit.
