Explanation:
The "paradores" in Spain are a network of rehabilitated historical buildings (palaces, convents, etc.) which have been made open for public lodging and generally offer a very high (and expensive) category of services.

beach bar


Explanation:
parador : Inn
Pero si dices por el contenido del original que son como bares en la playa , pues lo unico que yo puedo encontrar que hay en Ingles son "Beach bars". O lo que en el sur de espana se le llaman "chiringitos", pues son como restaurantes muy pequenitos con barra con un menu limitado de comida, o tapas.
Espero que esto te ayude ;-)

roadside bar/hotel or state-owned hotel


Explanation:
There are two meanings for this word. The most widespread use in Spain is a state-owned hotel, that are almost always national historic monuments, but there is also the other use, outside of Spain, which seems more like what you are looking for.
