What's left of summer is fast slipping through our fingers, but there's still time to say farewell in high style at one of our most enchanting hotels. Paradores recommends ten travel destinations where you can enjoy the last rays of sunshine before getting back to the routine.
Shall we begin? Just look at what our Amigos de Paradores have to say about the ten hotels we recommend for the final days of summer.
Manuel: "Excellent in every regard: excellent location, excellent décor, excellent service from the entire staff, excellent cuisine and excellent spa!!"
Carmen:"One of the best Paradores in every regard. Truly professional and friendly service from all staff. The restaurant is unbeatable, both the food and the service."
Pilar: "With just three stars, it holds its own against the other Paradores. I was incredibly impressed. In the oasis of peace that is La Mancha, this Parador offers a heavenly experience: magnificent pool for the hottest hours of the day, the grassy area surrounding the pool and those breakfasts! Unbeatable variety and quality. And the service from all of the staff I dealt with! Just what one expects from Paradores. In short, relaxation therapy."
Salvador: "We got married on May 31, 2014 and celebrated at the Parador de Albacete. We really appreciated the caring service we received, especially from José Antonio, who took care of the arrangements for every aspect of the wedding from the start, and the excellent terms they offered us. We had a fantastic time. DJ Segundo Láser livened up the open bar, and we danced and had fun until the early hours of the morning. Thank you."
Gerard: "Wonderful parador, rooms, function rooms, restaurant. Very attentive and friendly staff. Very nice pool, especially on a winter evening. Very good food. We really liked the incredible duck paella."
María Loreto:"The service is impeccable. Very large rooms and spectacular views."
Aitor: "Excellent rooms, wonderful atmosphere and as always, a first-class breakfast. We planned a romantic getaway with an evening at the spa and we'd like to return."
Manuel:"We were enchanted by the parador/convent. Traveling back to past centuries is an incredible experience we will not soon forget, it was like being under a spell! We enjoyed ourselves so much that everything seemed perfect, and it was!! It was all real. The room that was once a cell (with the little window in the door) where the nuns lived, was spectacular, a lovely bathroom, comfortable, cozy beds. If we return, we'll come back to the Parador, perhaps soon."
Baldomero: "We spent a weekend at this Parador and to tell the truth, everything was great. The staff was very friendly and they made the stay delightful."
Vicente: "The two of us were there June 14 to 18 and it was a very enjoyable stay because of the parador's wonderful location, along with the wonderful facilities and the friendliness and dedication of the entire staff (restaurant, café, reception and housekeeping). The room was very well equipped (the TV included canal +), spacious and had a nice view. We will definitely return."
Federico: "While the service at Paradores is always wonderful, the care taken with guests and the imagination employed in each event by the staff at the parador de Vilalba is out of the ordinary. If you can, book one of the rooms in Los Andrade Tower, magical. I also highly recommend the Enxebre restaurant, good traditional Galician food served in an informal atmosphere at very good prices."
