Parador de Carmona

Reviewed 8 December 2014

Every time you think you have seen the most beautiful parador in Andalusia there is more beauty to come. Carmona beats it all! The view from the balcony is stunning; the long corridors and tiled floors make you feel castle lord and lady. The walk to the 'city' centre is only minutes and enchanting. The little town itself is still relatively unspoiled, you are part of the community life after siesta when you sit on a terrace at the main square for a bone dry sherry and olives.
The bed is all right, so is the bathroom, no great luxury but fit for purpose. Breakfast will allow you to skip lunch. The swimming pool is rather far away, if you really want to swim instead of strolling through the narrow streets. International newspapers are missing, that's a pity. A hospitality tray would be nice, the interior is ever so slightly outdated but who cares. The overall impression is very good!

Room Tip: A room at the end of the corridor is beautiful

My husband and I stayed for one night in this Parador. We noticed it on our way back from a stay in the Parador at Cordoba and decided we must visit just because of its elevated position and magnificent building. Its on our wish list to visit as many Paradors as we can. We were not disappointed with the location. As previously stated by another traveller, Carmona is a hidden delight. One downsize is getting to the Parador, it is very well signposted but if you enter from the West, it takes you through very very narrow hilly streets, which is quite daunting in a larger vehicle. If we every re-visit we will enter via the East where getting to the Parador is quicker and easier. The bed was comfortable, food lovely, only downside is the country location and the closeness of several farms. If you have a room, as we did with a balcony overlooking the plains, dogs bark and donkey bray, continually. Being dog owners who live in the county, it didn't disturb our sleep but others may find it rather annoying.

Room Tip: Rooms from 401 to 413 are the ones with balconies which face South.

Parador de Carmona, Spain, located on top of hill overlooking plains of Seville (some miles away). The rooms were spacious with balconies offering spectacular views. All rooms have minibar and safe, but no tea kettle or clock. Free Wi-Fi (supposedly not available in rooms, but no problem in room 412 on balcony). Accessible plugs for charging electronics by bedside table (recommend a power strip to charge multiple devices). The usual bathroom amenities with good towels, vanity mirror, hair dryer, and plug for curling iron. Take plastic bag to bar for ice. Restaurant and parking on site.

We had high expectations of this Parador, both from reviews on Trip Advisor and from a friend´s experience (admittedly 25 years ago), but I am afraid our expectations were not met. On the positive side, the position of the Parador is good with great views across the plain, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the public rooms were big and airy and our bedroom was of a good size with comfortable beds. However, on the downside the light in the lobby of room did not work (but the bulb was replaced after we reported it), the bedside switch to turn it off did not work, there was a large water stain on the shade of one of the bedside lights and in the bathroom there was mould ingrained into the grout round the bath. In addition we were served coffee in a chipped cup, and drink measures were on the stingy side compared to other Paradores. Overall this was not what would have expected from any 4 Star hotel.

This Parador sits on top of a high hill overlooking a vast plain. The town of Carmona is a hidden treasure. It dates back to Roman times and was on the main road from Cordoba to Seville. The original Roman gates in and out of the town are still preserved as well as a Roman bridge. The hotel is in an old castle which has been restored. The rooms are very quaint and comfortable. The reception, bar and dinning area are very unique situated in the old castle building. There is an outdoor patio bar that has a fabulous view over the country side. You can see for miles and it's easy to see why the Romans built the town & castle there. They could easily see enemies approaching. The drive to Seville is very easy (major highway) and takes about 1/2 hour.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a view over the countryside.
