Surrounded by pines, the Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro stands atop Mount Gibralfaro opposite the Alcazaba (Citadel), with views of the bay and city of Malaga from a unique perspective. The common areas, guest rooms and rooftop swimming pool offer beautiful views of the town and sea. Here you will enjoy traditional Andalusian culinary offerings, including exquisite Málaga-style fried fish. In Málaga, you won't want to miss the Pablo Ruíz Picasso Foundation Birthplace Museum, where you will discover more than 230 works by the painter. The hotel, built out of stone next to Gibralfaro Castle, is the ideal location for visiting the city and enjoying sports such as golf and tennis at the nearby Parador del Golf. Málaga and its surrounding area are filled with light and beauty, offering the perfect vantage point overlooking the Mediterranean, a wonderful experience in which warm temperatures and the joy of Andalusia are assured.

Called in at the Parador to enjoy a light lunch on their terrace with one of the most dramatic views of Malaga. Annoyed the rather confused Germans on the next table with my Steve Coogan and Rob Bryden imitations of imitations!!

Not all rooms have a sea view or in fact a balcony. The sea view will be limited in my opinion as you looking over the harbour, the Cathedral view is however amazing. Very good hotel and the views are good but the service is better
