    It has magnificent views and is in walking distance of the ancient castle

  • Family with children

    Peaceful although busy. Stunning views from terraces, balcony and pool. Spacious rooms. Breakfast excellent - a fine start to the day. Reception staff - some friendly and smiley; others not!

    The meal we had on arrival (we were an hour late due to flight delays, so maybe chefs were tired!!) was not good. In fact my daughter's iberian pork loin was raw and had to be sent back! Wouldn't expect this with this standard of hotel. My husband and I are gourmet diners and this was a big let down.

    View of Malaga bay.

    Unfriendly staff. Poor breakfast. Not good value for money. Uncomfortable beds. Hotel performed many events during the evening and does not reserve parking spots for guests. Minuscule swimming pool.

  • Older travelers

    The view overlooking Malaga and the ocean is astounding. We spent hours just looking out to sea.

    Some of the staff were disinterested in helping - they did their job, but nothing else, and depending of the staff member, with barely a smile. The terrace bar was woefully understaffed and it was very difficult to get a drink, while looking at the beautiful view.

    The room and the staff.

    I feel that the hotel restaurant was probably one of the poorest of the Parador's I have visited. My wife sent back her main course as it was cold, the kitchen staff had heated the vegetables and potatoes probably in a microwave and returned the food. We did complain to the Head Waiter who agreed that it was less than good. The following morning I talked to several people who had an equally less than satisfactory meal. This continued at breakfast with no bacon, no eggs little cold meats left and when I asked for eggs the waitress produced 2 in a small dish but made no attempt to relenish the main dishes.

    The hotel is well situated out of the town of Malaga with a good restaurant and splendid views. The hotel staff are helpful and the rooms are good quality and clean. The access to the town is either down the path from the castle, by the bus from outside the hotel or by taxi. The location is not suitable for anyone who has any walking problems, unless they are prepared to order a taxi each time they want to go out. The town is very interesting with lots to see. The pool on the roof is not wonderful and could do with a really good clean

    The swimming pool is small and needs a really good clean in the tiles.

    The hotel is situated up on the hill, with nice view. The place is very nice and quiet, but if you don't enjoy walking uphill, then you need bus or taxi to go there. And the bus finishes quite early. You can pick up the schedule at the reception. Nice breakfast, clean, spacious room.

    We spent there only one night and were absolutely satisfied with what we got.

  • Older travelers

    This was the most comfortable hotel. We were fortunate to be given a top floor room with a balcony and wonderful views down the coast. The room was very elegant and well designed. The breakfast was the nicest we have ever had! I would definately stay there again, it was excellent value and wewished we had booked for longer.

  • Older travelers

    Good hotel, Excellent area for relaxing after a city break, Wonderful views.Staff were welcoming and friendly. Room comfortable and a good choice of things for breakefast. nice restaurant making best of views. Club sandwitch very good value. On the whole a good experience.

  • Couple
    4.2

    Nice view, typical good parador breakfast.

    The rooms need redecoration urgently! There was no mini-bar in my room. Smell of fresh paint everywhere. Tiny balconies with great view but only if you stand-up as the balcony is very high. If you sit down and enjoy a coffee you cant see the view! Staff at cafeteria unfriendly. Rates too high for waht they offer!

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The staff were amazing when a friend was injured at the hotel. Even after I checked out, they offered to help as much as possible.

    While the location is right beside a major tourist attraction, it also means that taking a taxi to/from the hotel can get quite expensive. You need to learn the city's bus system if staying longer than a day or two.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The location overlooking the city and next to the castle was unique. One could watch the cruise ships and ferries leave from the harbor from ones balcony

    The parking was quite adequate, yet, the first night one side of our car was scaped. On the second night, the other. It was hard to believe.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The situation was breathtaking with views over Malaga and beyond. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    The air conditioning was not working so the room was very hot on each of the two nights.
