The Parador Malaga Gibralfaro is in the old quarter of the city on mount Gibralfaro, an area of pine trees looking down over the town.

Opposite the hotel is the "Alcazaba" citadel which was built by the Moors. It was captured in 1487 after a siege lasting 40 days.

The name comes from the old lighthouse ("faro") which used to stand on the hill to guide vessels into the harbour and also to warn of attacks by pirates.

The Malaga Gibralfaro Parador gives the high level of luxury and service expected in hotels of the group.

The lounges and bedrooms are excellently furnished and a fine swimming pool is on the top floor.

Guests may also use the facilities of the Parador del Golf on the outskirts of the town which has all the facilities for golfers or for those wanting to learn the game.

To commemorate its most famous local citizen of modern times, the Parador restaurant has a Picasso painting on its wall.

In these surroundings taste the delightful cooking of Andalusia while looking out over the sea. Start the meal with :
"Cocktail de gambas y nuences" which is shrimp cocktail with nuts, or
"Borrachuelos” a soup made form angelfish. Continue with
"Fritura de pescaitos a la malaguena", a dish of small fish fried whole, or
"Pechuga de pollo Villaroy" being a fried breast of chicken with potatoes and vegetables or a salad.
At the end of the meal sample one of the dessert wines which have been produced in the Malaga area since Roman times.

There is much to see in the city of Malaga. Visit the cathedral and the castle, the archaeological museum and the Roman theatre.

There are big celebrations at Easter every year which are well worth attending. At other times of the year you can visit the churches of Santiago and Sagrario and the Bishops Palace.
The beaches of the Malaga area are a famous tourist attraction and get very busy in the peak of the holiday season and the same applies to the shops, bars and restaurants in the tourist area of the town.

We stayed 4 nights and were very satisfied about this Parador. Room was very comfortable, nice and well cleaned. Nice terrace with lovely view. Fortunately we had a rental car, which you need to get into town (otehrwise taxi). Breakfast offered a wide range of choice. Not very much tables outside to enjoy breakfast on the terrace (hotel might consider to split all tables into tables of 2). Id idn't found the staff at breakfast particularly friendly but it certainly did bother us. We can highly recommend this place.

Overall a nice stay for one day. A nice room with a beautiful view. When we arrived the receptionist was not very friendly even as the waitresses in the bar. The chairs on the terras were wet en we have to dry them bij our selves. The diner was very nice and so the services. overall: For the price we paid we expected more.

We stayed 2 nights in Malaga and 2 nights in Ubeda in January. Malaga is very well located with a wonderfull vieuw and a good busservice to the city. The rooms are correct but not typically Spanish. Dull in my opinion. The food in Malaga dull as well, my husband took fish of the day , two days the same fish. Breakfast is wonderfull in the Pardores. In Ubeda the food was much more interesting although very heavy and to much. In between we stayed in some small hotels in Andalusia, maximum 7 rooms, which was really very nice. As an interior architect i might see other things than other guests but these 2 paradores need some modernisation.
