Re: Ojen, Marbella

While in Ojen, if you manage to spare some time you could also try to visit Serrania de Ronda. There you will find Refugio de Juanar which is a popular hotel for tourists and hunters. The place is basically a hunting reserve where you'll find many wildcats, ibex and eagles:)

Hey David i can give you a rough idea about rates of hotels in Malaga. For 2 star hotel you can get a room for about £ 25, a 3-star hotel may cost around £35-£50 and 4 star will be above £ 60 approximately :)

The roads are much better now, the place is much cleaner. But the prices have hiked way high now than they were few yars back. Another good factor is that now i notice less mourners wearing black:)
