The Parador Kitchen

A classic example of Mediterranean cuisine, Valencian cooking features delicious dishes that are as tasty as they are healthy.

At our Parador, you can enjoy all of these unique delicacies, prepared with care and dedication.

The Parador de El Saler (Valencia) Golf course is considered by professionals, amateurs, institutions and the specialized press alike to have one of the best course layouts in the world. Built in 1968 by the internationally recognized “architect of Spanish golf,” Javier Arana, the course is located in the El Saler Nature Reserve, on the shores of the Mediterranean sea in the Autonomous Community of Valencia. This Community is a leader with respect to economic development in Spain, and considers this course a source of pride.

The course’s design took into account its integration in the protected landscape (with native plants such as the famous pale stonecrop plant, locally called “cat’s claw”). The course layout is varied, ranging from the beach links reminiscent of the famous Scottish golf courses, to areas of typical Mediterranean forest. The par-72 course measures 6.042 m, spread out over 18 holes. The club also offers a golf school; driving range; putting greens; 2 approach greens; a pro-shop; rental of clubs, hand carts and electric golf carts; and a restaurant and snack bar.

The Parador de El Saler (Valencia) golf course is considered one of the 60 best in the world and one of the 3 best in Europe – a view which is vouched for in testimonies from both professional and amateur players, institutions and the specialized press.
