Beautiful parador.
Beautiful parador in beautiful situation. Everything was excellent, until two young, noisy,unruly children arrived,(with their parents, who were obviously incapable of parenting). The children were running around at 12.30 am, in the room above ours, and the loud noise continued for hours. Similarly, that afternoon, the pair of them destroyed the peace and quiet of the pool terrace area with their persistent screaming. I think that families should be restricted to the ground floor bedrooms if at all possible. We have stayed in many Paradores and have never encountered this situation before. Unfortunately this negative experience has slightly detracted from memories of a very pleasant week.

Ok but strange rules on use of tables
Hotel is ok but room was small. View is excellent but hotel's rules lead to a strange situation. You can only enjoy the view if you have a meal at some tables, and these tables are numerous and mostly empty! If you want to just have a drink as a guest you are restricted to the few tables and chairs in and around the bar, so only a few have the view. Asked if we could sit at a table and poor waitress said she would get into trouble if she allowed us to.

A Room With A View - Stunning
The parador (as with all paradors in which we have stayed) was of a very high standard. What made this one particularly good was the exceptional view from our room and balcony. We also liked the free parking.

Great hotel but let down by restaurant
Great hotel but let down by restaurant food and especially their service. Not all menus were originally offered and we had to ask for the Parador Special Menu, even though this was displayed on the board outside the restaurant doors, you feel that they are hiding it as they would prefer you to order from the more expensive a la carte. Service was very, very slow, we were without an initial drink until we chased them, and it's not even a very large restaurant! They also kept coming back to advise that items were no longer available, this was within a hour of opening. The same situation happened on two evenings and also in the separate cafe area (where we were served with the wrong lunchtime snack). It's a shame because the hotel itself is very nice and in a great position. The small pool was very welcome but I wish that they had some newer sunloungers. Excellent view down to the inside of the Malaga bull ring from our room, we enjoyed watching the young matadors practicing one evening. Beautiful, although steep, walk through gardens to get to old Malaga town and front. Jumped on local bus to get back up the hill though. Very easy and cheap.
