Its location immediately adjacent to the Tajo gorge and Ronda’s iconic Puente Nuevo, is the reason this hotel is often fully booked. On the edge of the gorge, there are only a handful of hotels, and the Parador has the best vantage point. All guests of the hotel are able to enjoy drinks on the terrace patio, which is especially nice at sunset.
The Parador de Ronda is also the only hotel in the central city with a swimming pool, making it the envy of other hoteliers. Add in the restaurant serving a menu of Ronda fresh products, all prepared in a neo-traditional style, and visitors to Ronda are ensured the perfect holiday stay.
The building was extensively renovated prior to conversion into a Parador Hotel, having originally been the town hall in Ronda built in 1761, though reforms completely modernised the interior such that international travellers feel at ease.
All rooms are equipped with satellite TV, comfortable bathrooms including a full selection of soaps and complimentaries, Wi-Fi Internet, and are all air-conditioned and heated. There are sixty-five twin bed rooms, ten double bed rooms, a luxury suite, and eight split level duplex rooms.
If a specific room is desired, or a particuar view, please make sure you communicate with the hotel by email or phone beforehand. As you’d expect the best rooms are limited. All staff speak some English, with French and German spoken too.
Please note that standard rooms have views of the park or of the swimming pool. The park behind the Parador leads to the Paseo de los Ingleses, which includes the Bullring and the Balcon de Coño. Superior rooms have views of the Tajo Gorge, or the Ronda mountains. Duplex suites are differentiated by size, being two story accommodation, and do not indicate better views.
The Parador restaurant menu offers local flavours made from local produce, as well as Andalusian tastes, and chef takes care to include seasonal specialties when available, for example chestnuts or mushrooms from the Genal Valley, or cheeses and meats from around Ronda. Gluten free can also be prepared for guests requesting this.
At sunset, enjoy refreshments on one of two public terraces at the Parador, the first overlooks the Puente Nuevo and is reached via the bar adjacent to reception, the second overlooks the valley below Ronda and is situated behind the main dining area.
Private parking spaces are available under the hotel, with Friends of the Parador (club membership) parking free.
