Parador de Malaga Golf

Malaga is unusual in having two parador hotels and the Parador de Malaga Golf also has an unusual location. Situated on the oldest golf course on the Costa del Sol, this hotel also enjoys direct access to the beach. The sands here are among the least busy in the city so you can easily find a spot for your towel after a round of 18 holes.


If you’re looking for a hotel that combines golf and the beach within easy reach of Malaga, the Parador de Malaga Golf could be for you. It’s located to the west of the city centre, almost in Torremolinos right on the seafront.

To get the most from this hotel in Malaga, you need to hire a car or to not mind walking the short distance to the bus stop or train station outside the golf course grounds. A slightly longer walk (10-15 minutes) takes you to two of the largest shopping centres in Malaga, Plaza Mayor and Malaga Designer Outlet.

Malaga Airport is almost on the doorstep – be aware that the aircraft noise can be noisy at this hotel, particularly if the planes are landing from the sea. And Malaga city centre is around 15 minutes away by car, 30 minutes by Cercanías train or 45 minutes by bus.


Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The decor comes in traditional “parador style” (dark woods) and you might find it slightly dated. But in our experience, parador hotels always come squeaky clean and the beds super comfortable. Bathrooms too have a good size, which isn’t always the case at hotels in Malaga.

Double room at the Parador de Malaga Golf

For an extra treat, book a double superior or the Junior Suite. Some rooms have beach and sea views, while other overlook the pool. We’d recommend paying the extra for sea views, particularly in winter when you can watch the sun rise over the Mediterranean.
