We stayed at the Parador Jarandilla De La Vera with friends who had never stayed in a Paradore before. The parador is situated in the edge of the centre of the town. The castle is in beautiful location with a grand terrace and courtyard where you can have your meals or snacks. The staff are more than helpful even with limited English. The rooms are kept to old and original design. Clean and well kept rooms with full facilities, tv, mini bar etc. There is quite a good choice on the menu and the food is of a very high standard. Our friends were so impressed and so were we. We even went back at the end of the holiday to stay another two nights it was that good.

Stayed over the weekend. This is an idyllic little castle with a welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. There is a lovely courtyard in which to take drinks. The room was attractive and comfortable, the food and wine good. The hotel is within easy reach of Plasencia which is well worth a vist and there are stggering views in the mountains behind the hotel. Everything happens in its own time here which makes the hotel relaxing. Bear in mind , that in Extramadura English is not as widely spoken as elsewhere and allow a bit more time over drinks, meals etc.

This was Deborah's first experience of a parador and Peter's 5th. Reception: excellent and helpful staff. Good English though they were also tolerant of Peter's halting Spanish. Very little information about the local area, apart from a small diagram of the Ruta del Emperador. Room: large and comfortable; view OK; bathroom fine; service excellent. Restaurant: as there are vew alternatives, we ate dinner in the restaurant every night and enjoyed it. Menu a bit limited by the fifth night. Good wine list but I agree with a comment below that is very over-priced. Unlike other comment below, we found the buffet breakfast very good. Other facilities: courtyard and balconies superb and friendly staff served us drinks wherever we wanted to sit. Swimming pool very good. Even though it was out of season, I enjoyed a swim in water which was just about warm enough. Area: convenient for Monfrague, Cuevas de Aguila and Gredos mountains. But it took us three days to discover the delights of the De La Vera region. Again, the Parador has little information about the local area. Overall: a most enjoyable stay and we would recomment this Parador to anyone.
