Negative Reviews

A Bit Worn.

Some guests report the overall appearance of the property is beginning to look a bit worn with wear evident on the furniture and flooring. Guests comment that Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro will soon need refurbishing to restore the property to its former elegance. While the property is becoming a bit dated, guests remark that this element did not detract from their enjoyment of the complex and that they will return as the views from the hotel are beyond compare and that for the money, it is still one of the best hotel values in Malaga.

Rooftop Terrace Needs Attention.

Guests advise that the rooftop terrace is the perfect place to enjoy the views of the sea, however pigeons are a problem, and their droppings and feathers are frequently found littering the area and the swimming pool.

Reservation Confusion.

Some guests have commented that they choose the hotel because of the fantastic views from the terrace and were very disappointed to arrive to find that their room preferences were not addressed.
