Reviewed 10 June 2014

Ronda is a jewel of a town. Despite the number of visitors it is a very beautiful place which has retained its charm and delight. The gorge in the centre is its unmissable iconic trademark. On the other hand the architecture in the old town is fascinating and brings to life history back to the Moors and more recent times. The surrounding countryside is very apparent and has been miraculously preserved with its magnificent green fields and olive groves. To the horizon are the imposing surrounding mountain ranges.
At the centre of all this, and adjacent to the New Bridge over the gorge, is the Parador. A wonderful building with rooms full of solid old fashioned charm. The rooms are large and well appointed. The solid wooden floors are a fine feature. Even the cheapest rooms have incredible views and are not to be disregarded..
The restaurant is of a high quality and the evening menu substantial, with several regional specialities .
Highly recommended and memorable.

Pay extra for the room with the view because that is why you are there. It is spectacular. The room needs some work with the furniture and floors showing definite signs of age. Breakfast is good. Very centrally located. Just remember, it is all about the view!

Room Tip: Must have a room overlooking the valley.It is only a bit more expensive.

We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite because it was a special anniversary. The room and its location were stunning. The restaurant is somewhat bland and uninspiring and it lacked atmosphere. Everything else was excellent. However, I do wish hotels wouldn't charge for parking a motor vehicle on their premises. It's just a sour taste rip-off.

We stayed at the Parador in Ronda about 10 years ago and it was amazing. We have since visited Ronda and always visit the Parador even if just for a coffee. Set in an amazing space at the edge of a gorge the building renovated to a high specification meets all expectations. There is an outdoor pool and area for sunbathing too . We stayed their in early September for two nights and there was an annual bull fight festival so it is a must to visit the bull ring which is a spectacular place of history. There are shops and lots of bars and restaurant surrounding the hotel. The old town is just a horse drawn carriage away which can be picked up about 50 yards from the hotel. Well worth a visit and highly recommended except if you are not too keen on heights - the view are spectacular but not for the faint hearted.

The hotel is right in the centre of the city, overlooking the gorge and the bridge between old town and new town. This is the best located hotel I have ever seen. Malaga Airport is 90 minutes away. Go for it.

Room Tip: Stunning views from the rooms facing south and east.

We stayed here two nights that coincided with the festival of "Romantic Ronda". The parador is perched overlooking a gorge and next to a bridge that connects the two sides of the town. This is what we liked:

1. Perfect location.
2. Modern rooms beautifully outfitted -- including thermal windows that keep out heat and noise.
3. The most delicious food of any parador we have stayed at (and we have stayed at many over the years). Breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- you will not be disappointed.
4. Very relaxed but professional staff --reallly made you feel at home.

What we did not like so much about the parador: nothing! It was truly a wonderful experience and a "must" if you are visiting this part of Spain.

Room Tip: We paid a bit extra for the duplex (a two-floor junior suite with a double bed, full bath, and big t...

The paradors are consistently good. We turned up here without a reservation and were the only people having lunch here. We were not disappointed. Staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. The menu offered imaginative, unusual dishes and also regional dishes.

You cannot beat the location.

Unlike so many local restaurants the tables are well spaced, with good linen and excellent views. This is a place to relax.

Everything was of the highest quality.

Attention to detail was excellent; just the way the coffee was served was beautiful.

It is rare for a government enterprise to set standards which private enterprise would struggle to achieve. We must have stayed in or eaten at well over 20 paradors now and have always found them to be excellent.

My only quibble would be to note that the lights in the ladies' and mens' rooms are timed out with no sensor so they cut out when you are in there. Please add sensors.
