we had a night at the parador and enjoyed the unique setting "high" above malaga. rooms were OK, although we agree on some comments that the metall beds have a a look and feel of a hostel, and not of a quite expensive parador. had dinner at the restaurant, food quality was very good. it´s a little bit sad, that...

I stayed one night at the Parador with my husband and we absolutely loved the location, away from the crowed city, and the view. We decided to have dinner at the restaurant and the food was disappointed, really not good for 4 stars hotel. The breakfast was even worse, and too expensive. The selection of bakery was inedible. It is...

We went to dine there for a treat while we were on holidays in Andalusia. The hotel itself is fabulous with the most amazing views over the sea and Malaga. The staff in both the bar and restaurant were welcoming and attentive. However the disappointment was the food. We were expecting fine dining in a hotel of this quality but...

Unforgetable experience. Precious parador Malaga Girbralfaro. Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff. Room with a nice view over the city, the harbour and the plaza de toros. Very nice situated swimmingpool at the top of the hotel. Excellent location in combination with the castle.

Our room was at the top floor of the hotel and the balcony was facing the harbor and the city. The sight was marvelous and the restaurant with its good service and quality food mad you stay a remarkable one.

We stayed here at the end of March and were disappointed by our stay. When you are paying over 200€ a night you expect more than the very basic room and tired corridors with bare walls. The balcony was very small but did have a good view over Malaga, however we couldn't use it due to ants crawling about the...

Stayed here on friends recommendation on our first night in Spain. The very best part of this hotel is the view. The room although large with a nice balcony was only adequate. We had to open the balcony door to get some air as the room was smelly and we prefer not to use the airconditioning unless absolutely essential. To...

Dear sir, First of all, sorry about not reaching the expectation created by your friend. About the noise, it is difficult due to the silence around the parador, the noises from the city seems to be louder. In the room there is a minibar with water, but facilities for tea & coffee, we have only in the superior rooms. We...

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...
