parador gibralfero malagaThis Parador 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 hotel 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.
