Andalusia Hotels

Parador Alcázar del Rey Don Pedro


  • Unbeatable views over the fields
  • Great sense of history


  • Feels slightly lifeless after Seville

Fodor's Review

This parador has superb views from its hilltop position among the ruins of Pedro the Cruel's summer palace. The public rooms surround a central, Moorish-style patio and include the vaulted dining hall and adjacent bar that open onto an outdoor terrace overlooking the sloping garden. Of the spacious guest rooms—decorated in light grey tones—all but six, which face onto the front courtyard, look south over the valley (the best rooms are on the top floor). The restaurant claims to be one of the best in the parador group and serves local specialties such as partridge and spicy spinach.

Agree with above!

A very nice room with beautiful views of the valley. Farmer and livestock right outside the window. Excellent service and decor in the parador. Breakfast very good, and also a good value. If the dollar hadn't been so poor vs. the euro, it would have been an unbelievable, as opposed to excellent, bargain overall. Professional and helpful staff. Definitely stay here and skip the crowds, dirtiness, and noise of Seville, which is an easy car ride

down N-4. Only drawback--absolutely beautiful pool not open for swimming until June 1, far too late for the climate of Andalusia.

Great room; lovely views

A lovely parador with a great restaurant. We had a good-size room for 3 but no balcony. Great view of the countryside from the window.

Our favorite place in Andalusia...

...2 weeks in Southern Spain and the parador in Carmona was our favorite (2 nights in May 2003). We had the corner room on the top floor with a large wrap-around balcony with "forever" views. The entire parador is very well maintained and atmospherically decorated - love the bar area and outside balcony, and central courtyard. The town of Carmona is equally atmospheric with many excellent tapas bars, lots of history. also <30 minutes to Seville. Highly

recommend this Parador!

Live like a King!

OK room with fabulous views. Best food on our trip. We kept getting lost in the town but loved it anyway. Every evening we walked around through back streets.
