Get away from London's cold weather and stop at the Riu Monica. We arrived at the hotel after a 5 hour flight delay and received a very warm welcome from the assistant manager Samuel. The next day we met Samuel again and were introduced to all the key staff. Every breakfast and dinner time Samuel was in the restaurant talking... More

Even though other reviews were so good for this hotel, we found it even better than we had expected. The room was huge, immaculately clean with a great view of the sea. The buffet style meals were excellent with a great choice at both breakfast and dinner. Well cooked food beautifully presented. It was my husband's birthday during our stay... More

We just returned from Nerja two weeks ago. There was absolutely nothing that could be faulted about this hotel. The staff were very friendly & attentive. The food was excellent, with a great variety on the buffet, cooked to perfection. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, with a beautiful sea view and balcony. Nerja is a very pretty place,...

I decided to write about our experiences at the RIU Monica even though the hotel is about to undergo some kind of facelift later in 2015. Anything I write may be irrelevant in six months time but it could still be of use to anyone thinking of going before the fefurb. If you are thinking that this hotel may be... More

My wife and I stayed at the Riu for a week in mid February and have to say that this hotel deserves all the accolades that it has received in countless reviews. From the minute you walk into the hotel you know that ' all will be well ' throughout your stay as the attentive staff and the ambience of... More

We booked a package to this hotel via Thompson's because it was the easiest way of arranging transport from Malaga to Nerja and the package came with halfboard. I expected to have one or two evening meals in the hotel but eat out most of the time at local restaurants.However the food was so good we eat in for the... More

Of all the chain hotels Riu have the highest standards - I have never known the reception staff to be quite so attentive, being personally escorted to a good parking place was quite unique. In most other respects the hotel was equally exemplary. The only minor disappoinment was the indoor pool which was a bit lacking, but possibly this is... More

Spent two weeks at the Monica at the beginning of February and was most impressed. The best part of this hotel is the staff, they are just so welcoming and friendly, from the cleaning staff to the director. In most hotels we've stayed we don't usually see the management, well there was always someone around day and night. Good customer... More
