    Air conditioning not effective at all. Asked to move to another room. First was told, "no other rooms available ". When I kept asking, the woman at front desk said we have one more room. We went to see it and the air conditioning would not even turn on. Disappointed and uncomfortable sleeping with little cool air.

    Beds were uncomfortable and breakfast was not good. WIFI was subpar.

    We could not find a taxi to get back to the hotel from the old town. This made it a very long walk

    The hotel is a ten minute walk from the town beach and a thirty minute walk away from the old centre. The walk starts through a very attractive park and then along a beautiful passeo which runs along the beach. We found a great tapas restaurant in the old town for lunch, visited the Roman Baths and then eat in the hotel bar in the evening

    Perhaps our expectations of our first Parador experience were to high. While there was certainly nothing in particular wrong with the place, it felt very ordinary, and a little tired in places. Compared to other small independant hotels we stayed at, our view was that this parador didn't represent value for money.

    Excellent staff, location suited us, we like a good walk. Others might prefer to be closer to the old town.

    The meal in the restaurant was not up to Parador standards. Menu on a clipboard and no wine list. Appetizer appeared with the first course and main course served the instant I had finished the starter. The sweet could have been bought at a supermarket. Poor location and hard to find. Had this been the first Parador that I stayed in it would have been the last which is a shame as the others have all been excellent

    Location.
    • Leisure trip

    When I go to a Parador I expect something exceptional. Here there was nothing. As an average 3 star hotel it is fine. As a parador it is disappointing. An ordinary building with a low standard of cleanliness and clear signs of lack of care (rails in cupboards and bathrooms broken). A barn of a dining room with absolutely no atmosphere. The staff in the dining room and the bar were exceedingly polite and totally unfriendly. A very poor example of a Parador and one which damages the brand. If this were the first one I had stayed in I would not use a Parador again.

    Location. On the edge of a park, close to the sea front. Reception staff were friendly.
