This was our first visit to mainland Spain as a couple apart from a short city break to Barcelona a few years ago. We travelled with Thomson on a package deal. We are in our late 50s. The welcome from the staff team was very good and informative. The glass of chilled cava was very welcome too! Although about forty... More

Hotel Monica never fails to uphold its first class service/food and, of course, staff who cannot do enough for you without being over the top from Lola and her team on reception to Samuel Sticcer, the Assistant Director, are always smiling and willing to help. Yes as some reviewers have already mentioned some small parts of the hotel are looking... More

This is our third visit to a Riu Hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the chain. Yes, the Monica is a little tired especially the corridor floors and bedrooms but with a refit due the end of year this will be put right, all other areas are fine so will be a bonus if they are refreshed. One thing that... More

The Riu chain never fails to satisfy. Of all the various credits the main one as always is the staff who were as usual in a class of their own.. This hotel has a perfect location with only a few minutes walk by the sea to the centre of the town. The out of season evening entertainment was a bit... More

We stayed here for a week in February 2015. Booked through a package with Thomson. We wanted to go to Nerja and have stayed in, with good results, two previous Riu hotels so chose it. The hotel is an older building, which if you were being picky could do with an update to more modern fixtures and fittings. However, it... More
