|Just left our Cuenca Parador, our 6th Parador on our tour. it was a National Festival and the town (especially outside the Parador) was jam packed. Extremely hard to find parking. I am sure most vehicles parked outside the Parador were not guests. The Parador is in an excellent location. Close the town, just across the foot bridge. Beautiful little square. The staff was the least helpful of any of the Paradors we have visited. The set priced dinner (1/2board) menu had very few selections so we asked for the full menu which we would have to pay a little more for. The selections tripled and we had a fantastic dinner. Overall glad we had a chance to visit.|

|My husband and I were there nights in mid- May and loved our experience. We travel to Spain every year and select a small area of the country to explore. We always stay at Paradores, when available. Cuenca has a magnificent ambience surrounded by majestic views of Las Casas Colgadas. The staff was friendly and most helpful and our meals were excellent. We will return.|

|My daughter and I stayed at the Paradore Cuenca for Holy Week. We played tennis every day on their court, hiked in the hills, and toured the old town across the footbridge. It was completely charming. The staff searched for tennis balls that accidentally went over the fence and could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was delicious every day and the public areas of the Paradore were stunningly beautiful. The Holy Week festivities were lovely and plentiful. We were lucky to be there for that too. We loved our stay there and would love to return on another trip.|

|A two-night stay in August 2013 was just fantastic. The room was very well-appointed whilst the cloisters restaurant was just stunning, open to the skies as darkness fell. So atmospheric! I felt very privileged to stay in such a beautiful parador in an amazing setting, perched across the footbridge from the old town and looking across to the historic, beautiful hanging houses (colgadas). I shall certainly return to this wonderful place and stay at the parador again in order to be able to tour the surrounding countryside.|
