|We stayed only a night. Amazing and peaceful place, architecture fine, wonderful renovation, good room, good services. In the next trip to Spain we should like to stay more days.|

|Very difficult to find this parador with appalling lack of road signing. Tomtom unsure of its location. Very remote setting and uninspiringly little to do or see in the area. Did not enjoy stay compared with other paradores. Front desk staff particularly helpful. NO wifi at all and no hard wired connection available either. Found the building depressing and signs of neglected and poor management in the general state of the surroundings. Evening meal was bad and expensive. Not worth the frustration and effort of finding the place. The positioning of the ancient gravetard right by the main entrance set the tone . Dull and depressing. Would not recommend this parador.|

|An excellent parador with extremely helpful and friendly staff! We had a lot of fun finding it, up the very narrow twisting mountain road which we're told lots of guests do, then finding that there's even a town on top of the mountain! Absolutely stunning setting, and a wonderful history to discover once you're there. I wish we were staying longer than one night. The restaurant was lovely, very romantic to sit out on the terrace, but you need to be careful what you choose to eat. Having said that, there isn't much to fault this lovely parador. It's a shame the spa is so expensive and costs per couple. I really wanted to use it but it was not being used by anyone at that time and staff were happy to show us around but I felt it was a bit of an inconvenience.|
