We arrived in Malaga with the intent of finding a comfortable accommodation where we can just sit back and relax. Be a tourist if we wanted but finding a quiet spot was important . We knew the standards of the paradores so we had no doubt about booking this one. This spot exceeded our expectations. The hotel is up on...

The views from the hotel are stunning and make a stay here worth it in their own right. The building is attractive and the facilities are good although not extensive. There is a small rooftop pool, perfect for sunbathing although I wouldn't recommend for children as it is small. Our room was large and well equipped with the wonderful views...

Very nice place to stay and good service. Near the old city. You can walk to town . Many service bus and day trips to see the city. Nice galleries , good shops. Very good tourist information. Very easy to find things with a map.

Great place to relax and enjoy the panoramic views over Malaga after the steep climb up passed the Alcazaba and Gibalfaro. A little bit pricier than a downtown cafe but the scenery is outstanding. Only ever had drinks on the balcony. This was our 3rd visit to the Parador.

After long walk up the steep trail to Castillo de Gibralfaro, we popped to the Parador for lunch. It was actually a recommendation from my wife who had stayed there in her youth. The views from the terrace/veranda are spectacular and the setting very peaceful. The food was lovely. A medium price affair mind you, but the setting made it...

We have just spent five nights in this Parador. Our room has a balcony with a table, chairs, and a fabulous view over the sea, the city and the castle. The room itself is comfortable, the only downside being that there seem to be none with double beds! The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is good, with...

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...
