Ideal for those looking for a relaxing couple of days. The "refugio" is nice and cozy. The team is very friendly. The food is good. From here you can access to several hiking routes that last from 1 to 6 hours depending on what you are looking for. The views from the tip of the mountain a spectacular over Marbella,... More

Booked for three days, but left at soon as I could. Had booked smokefree due too allergy, but was checked in at smokey room. Tobacco well inpregnated in curtains, linen and so on. The room was simple and nicely painted, but not with light enough to read. There was no robe, safe, minibar, iron and heating as booked. The radiators... More

One of the great things about coming regularly to the Costa del Sol is finding new gems to visit. This hotel is no exception, being located off the road from Marbella to Ojen. One follows the brown sign marked to Refugio de Juanar for about 7K along a twisty mountain road and is rewarded by finding this hotel located in... More

Excellent facilities for us. We decided to use this hotel as we wanted to do two walks from there. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant and the food was good but a little overpriced.

Yesterday we took a little day trip to Ojen to drop off a friend at her hotel and we ended up for lunch at the Refugio de Juanar. A very popular spot in the mountains above Marbella and it took us a while to get there. It was busy but we were relatively early and sat down for some tapas... More

although this hotel is literally over the mountain from where I live, we decided to try the restaurant and stay the night to save driving home. We had previously been put off of this venue as we have had such poor service, when even trying to get a cup of coffee. We arrived by way of the winding narrow road... More

A very pleasant surprise finding Refugio de Juanar. We have visited twice now, firstly to enjoy coffee inside by the glowing logs as the air is chillier in the winter months. We loved the ambiance and old fashioned unspoiled decor in the comfortable lounge area. Our second visit to have lunch today was as satisfying but I would agree with... More

This is a hidden Place but Worth to visit, especially if you like mountain hiking, the surroundings are beautiful, tracks are well described. The hotel has a swimming pool excellent after mountain walk. The Food was very good, good wine. The staff is friendly. Standard rooms, but clean.

We've stayed here three times now, but last night was the best - in Room No. 3, where General de Gaulle stayed and wrote his memoirs. We sat in front of our own open fire in the bedroom, relaxing before dinner - really nice. It's such a lovely place to stay, somewhat quirky but that adds to the charm. The... More
