We returned for a three night stay this year after a great two night stay last year. We asked for the same room as last year because the balcony was vast with the best views over the hotel's cloister towards the basilica and the mountains and were delighted when we checked in to be given the same room.
Staff were very friendly from start finish and even parked our car for us when we couldn't squeeze it into on of the spaces!
Breakfast was superb although I'd recommend having coffee instead of tea! And finally the pool area here is lovely - spacious terraces and lots of sun loungers so no fighting or trying to sneak out and put your towels out to reserve a space! A nice additional touch this year was being brought little hors d'ouevres by the pool around lunch time. It's just a shame that the pool doesn't open until 11am!
Would recommend getting out and about rather than just using this parador as a stopover en route to somewhere else. There's food walking and bird watching and some beautiful drives. We went to the village of Cabañas del Castillo and climbed up to the castle for the most astonishing views. The visit to the monastery in Guadalupe is well worth it although you have to take a group guided tour and it's only in Spanish.
Thoroughly recommend this parador and will certainly return given the chance!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Parador rises up on the original Hospital of St. John the Baptist and the Colegio de los Infantes , artistic historical buildings from the 15th century. A passing home for pilgrins and soldiers, in 1965 it adopted this objetive for the Network of Paradors.The eye-catching orchard which constitutes the garden its secluded swimming pool, colonnades and White walls , are in harmony with the spacious romos of the interior, the bedrooms of which recall the religious function of its origins. The capacity is precisely one of the fundamental attractions which the Guadalupe,Altamira and Mirabel romos reflect; although the wooden terraces, balconies and courtyard with portico reflect the quietness of its appearance. The simple local cooking is delicious, with representative dishes such as "bacaloa monacal" (cod, potatoes and spinach), "ajo blanco extremeno" (cold garlic soup), "migas extremenas" (fried breadcrumbs), "pollo a lo padre Pedro"(chiken),Iberian sausages, lamb stew, chestnut pudding and "muegado de Guadalupe"(fried sweet). ... more less
