Ronda is undeniably one of the most romantic destinations in Spain! And when you’re there, there’s no place more romantic to stay than the Catalonia Reina Victoria Wellness & Spa Hotel, a Victorian hotel in a leafy pine forest, with impressive views of the famous Tajo de Ronda. Built in 1906, this hotel was once the residence and workplace of the world-famous German poet, Rilke, who loved the architecture of Ronda so much that he nicknamed it "the dream city."

Paradores de turismo en Málaga
Spain has a slew of “paradores,” or tourist hotels in historic buildings that offer high-quality rooms, tasty food, a nod to Spanish history and lots of ways to relax. In Malaga, there are five of these kinds of accommodations: Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro (which has one of the best views of the city of Malaga and much of Costa del Sol), Parador de Ronda (which sits in an old town hall right on Tagus River and boasts stunning views), Parador de Antequera (which is a more modern hotel in a garden setting), Parador de Málaga Golf (which has an 18-hole golf course that faces the sea) and Parador de Nerja (which sits on a cliff, looks out onto the Mediterranean Sea and has an elevator that goes directly to the beach).
A good romantic getaway needs modern and comfortable facilities, beautiful views, stunning pools, elegant spas and restaurants that delight all five senses. Of course, what really makes the trip unforgettable is the two of you! Cherish your time together when you indulge in a romantic getaway to Costa del Sol.
