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.

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Cuenca. The staff were very helpful on reception, even though they had a major that afternoon. The room was very comfortable. We ate in the beautiful restaurant the food was delicious although the service was patchy because of the function. All in all a delightful place to stay and visit

We stayed here in May with friends and our visit was a highlight of our trip to Spain. Cuenca is a spectacular town and the parador was the perfect place to enhance the magic of the place. The public rooms are amazing, our bedrooms were beautiful with lovely soft furnishings, and spotlessly clean. The food was not as good as I had hoped, but there was a wedding the day of our stay, so this may have been the cause. The only real concern was the 'parking attendant' who fleeced us of 20 euro after 'helping' us to park . (N.B. parking IS a bit of a problem.) Apparently he is a gypsy who cons tourists, so beware.
