The Parador of Cadiz reopened in September 2012 after being totally rebuilt. This new building presents a modern, updated architecture, in which light, space and noble materials are key elements.
The Parador is located in the historical centre of Cadiz, between La Caleta beach and the Genoves Park.
The Cadiz Parador has one hundred and four bedrooms including eighteen double bedrooms and eighteen junior suites, all equipped with mini bar, safe and hair dryer. Bedrooms are modern and beautifully decorated. Some have impressive terraces overlooking the ocean and the town of Cadiz.
As with all hotels in the Parador group, the restaurant specialises in the local dishes and it also has a gluten free menu.
It is said that Cadiz was founded over 3000 years ago by Hercules while resting from his labours. Its inhabitants gained great wealth when it became the major port of Spain for the trade with the colonies in Latin America.
Relics of these prosperous times can be found in the city museum together with the more troubled times of the Napoleonic Wars.
Also worth visiting is the Horse Fair held in May in Jerez. Whilst there, taste the sherry in its birthplace and also see flamenco dancing.
It is a convenient spot for those wanting to visit the inland 'white villages' the caves or the mountains. Also worth a visit is the British enclave of Gibraltar although border restriction often result in long delays.
Parador facilities include bar and restaurant, heating, lift, free wireless Internet, parking facilities (without security and limited places), garden, spa and a seasonal swimming pool.
Distance from the nearest airport is approximately 45 kms, the nearest train station is 2 kms away and the nearest port is approximately 1,5 kms away.

|The new paradore in Cadiz is "ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS" in every way. I recommend it warmly to anyone who likes a bit of luxury and modern architecture. And of course the city irself is also wonderful.|

|We stayed in the Parador Cadiz on half board in January 2013 and were made to feel very welcome. We were escorted to our room on arrival and shown how to use the room facilities. The room was very modern and pleasing to the eye. We especially liked the glass balcony doors which folded back giving a panoramic view of the old city of Cadiz and also the bay. We found enough room to store all of our belongings without anything being on show. The restaurant and other public rooms are decorated in the same modern style with lots of glass, steel & granite. In January there did not seem to be many rooms occupied so it was very quiet. The restaurant only had 2 or 3 tables occupied each night but we had very good service from all the staff. We had a problem on the first night with the evening meal because there was a separate menu for half board which was quite small. We wanted to order from the main menu and pay the difference in price which caused us some embarassement as nobody new if this was possible. This was eventually sorted out with the manager. This problem could have been sorted out if there was one menu with a printed supplement for half board diners on the more expensive items. We were delighted with the location of the hotel. We could walk out either way and come back through the middle of the old town of Cadiz which has many beautiful gardens and squares. I found the architecture of the buildings very photogenic. Also you can take a trip on the open topped Hop on/off bus. There are Castilla's, fortresses & lots of artwork within easy walking distance of the hotel. There are also many tapas bars around. We found a great watering hole overlooking the bay facing west so you can watch the sun go down. The best local tipple that we can recommend is Pancracio Chocolate vodka which is made in Cadiz. All in all I would highly recommend the Parador in Cadiz, and the city Cadiz itself.|

|We spent 2 nights at the end of December 2012 in the Cadiz Parador. It is not that easy to find in the dark, and we drove past it without realizing it was there. It's brand new, and the architecture is minimalist and ultra-modern; not to everyone's taste as the result is lacking in warmth. Some might say it's over-pretentious. The same remarks can be made about the room. It's certainly spacious and comfortable but the view could be better. The room looked out over the sea to the right, the extensive pool area in the centre and some nondescript pinkish tower block in the background, centre left. Not a terribly inspiring view, and certainly not "spectacular". The bath room was complete with shower and bath, but why not have a separate loo? A sliding glass door is probably not the best solution, although the interior designer was no doubt pleased with his or her idea. The same can't be said for the customer. Nice big walk-in shower. The rather complicated lighting system for the room took a bit of getting used to; not very practical when one wishes to get up in the middle of the night without waking one's partner up. I do not recall being in a "beautifully decorated" room. A few splashes of colour would not come amiss. We didn't eat in the restaurant, as there are a few in the town, though not that easy to find. The food at breakfast was OK, but the dining room was very noisy; more a school canteen atmosphere than what one would expect in a luxury hotel. The underground car park is a disappointing rip-off at 15 euros a day. All in all we weren't terribly impressed by this parador. The architecture is pretentious, disappointing and lacking in originality; seen from a distance the hotel just looks like a disproportionately-sized large, rectangular metal box, plonked down in a site that deserved far better. The staff at reception were reasonably nice, but the staff at breakfast were not. This may have something to do with their grievances over pay and working conditions, as there was a strike in the Paradors over the New Year period.|

|We stayed at this newly re-opened parador in mid-October, 2012. The architecture was amazing - a lot of wood, glass, and metal... a very contemporary exterior opened to a warm and welcoming interior. The staff was very helpful and accommodating despite the fact there had been a strike a few days before. Our first room overlooked the ocean, the views were beautiful but b/c there was a plumbing problem we asked to move to another room. This new room overlooked the park and was just as comfortable as the first. We ate at the parador restaurant and found the food to be good, though perhaps a little pricey. The location of the parador was great - we walked each day into the town, along the beach and into the park. First time we stayed in a parador and were impressed with the concept, plus they try to make these kinds of interesting accommodations affordable to many.|
