Derived from Arabic, the word ‘Alcázar’ (pronounced /al-KAH-saaa(r)/) literally means ‘Fortress’. The town of Alcazar de San Juan was founded when a group of knights of the order of Saint John camped in and around an abandoned Moorish ‘Alcázar’ in what is now the province of Ciudad Real.
Famous for its Manchego windmills and picturesque squares and churches, walking through Alcazar de San Juan is like taking a stroll through Don Quixote’s imagination.
The hotel is located in front of Alcázar’s largest park that is perfectly suited to strolls during one-to-ones. Rooms are placed along an interior quadrangle and all guests will have access to the indoor spa and the outdoor swimming pool.
