This is a lovely, well run hotel just off the beach and 10 minute stroll to the quaint, charming town centre. The rooms are clean and the food is good, although can get a little samey and the desserts are a little insipid. The centre is fantastic at night and has none of the tackiness that the likes of benidorm... More

Just spent a week at Riu Monica. What an amazingly peaceful place. Fantastic personal approach by the manager of the hotel along with his assistant manager, head waiter, head chef, head of house keeping; all attending the welcome meeting with Diane from Thomsons. Refreshing change to see a Rep with a simple welcome, basic information and no hard sell and... More

I stayed here two years ago with my mum after my dad died, they had spent many a happy time here year after year. Me, my mum, husband and daughters stayed for a week hoping for a great time but were disappointed. A few years ago guests dressed up for dinner but not any more. The buffet at times was... More

This was our second visit,staying for two weeks.You can usually judge an hotel by the welcome you receive at its reception and at the Riu Monica the welcome is fantastic and indicative of what your stay is going to be like. All the staff throughout are friendly and helpful and the hotel is spotlessly clean.The senior management are highly visible... More

Great location, really good hotel, excellent food, brilliant staff who cannot do enough for you. We have stayed here for the second time now and we will return again in the near future. We stay half board through thomsons, the location is right by the sea with good views. Nerja is a lovely place with lots of little tapas bars... More

Just landed back in England a few hours ago. We haven't stopped talking about since we got back. This was our first holiday abroad together and it has been a memorable one at that. Riu Monica is a great place to go, the staff are really welcoming and friendly. The food is awesome! Loads to choose from and if you... More

Good four star hotel right on the beach and only a 10 minute walk to the Balcon de Europe. We were on the 6th floor facing west - room 646. The room was described as "side" sea view but that was something of an understatement in that while looking out directly from the balcony one looked out across roof tops... More

2nd time I've visited this hotel, last time 7 years ago. Great location, very good buffet food. Nice grounds. Entertainment dire, other than the Flamingo group which were superb. Hotel in need of some updating which I understand is planned this winter. Very handy bars across the road (particularly the ship) for cheap pre/post dinner drinks.
