Fodor's Expert Review Parador de Mazagón

Pl. de Mazagón, Mazagón, Andalusia, 21130, Spain

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

This peaceful, modern parador stands on a cliff surrounded by pine groves, overlooking a sandy beach 3 km (2 miles) southeast of Mazagón. A large wildfire in summer 2017 burned a lot of the forest, which has since recovered somewhat, although you can still expect to see charred trees. Most of the spacious and comfortable rooms have balconies overlooking the garden, and the restaurant serves Andalusian dishes and local seafood specialties, such as fried cuttlefish and white shrimp.
