    As a family of 4, we have just spent a week at this lovely hotel and can only agree with all the positive comments already written. The location is amazing, right on the sea front with the mountains behind. The staff are really friendly and it feels genuine. The pool is lovely and well looked after, as are the grounds.... More

    Just returned from a week at the Riu Monica and I can only echo the words of previous reviewers, who have described it as fantastic. The staff are very welcoming and warm; the Thompson rep, Diane, is helpful and friendly; the rooms are kept spotlessly clean; the food is varied and is of good quality, and the location is ideal....

    We just got back from a week in Riu Monica and it was absoluely fantastic. The location is wonderful and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The hotel is due to undergo some renovations in October which i can understand to an extent as the rooms are a bit tired and dated but clean. Plumbing also seems to be an... More

    Just spent two weeks in the rui Monica and I must say it's probably the best holiday I've ever had , the staff couldn't do enough for you , the food was amazing and although the hotel does need updating it was spotless . The daily week day activities with Jose were a great way of meeting people and were... More

    Unfortunately the Monica is becoming child free but it is a fantastic hotel! Amazing restaurant serving buffet food at breakfast and dinner, it's frankly delicious! Nice pool bar selling drinks and ice creams and the pool itself is very nice! The outdoor pool is chilly: it's near the sea you see! However, the indoor pool is tolerable (If slightly dark)... More

    Have never come across a hotel which seems to get so much repeat visits from customers, which must say something! I agree with much of the previous reviews as the staff can't do enough for you & hotel is very good overall. The food is excellent although if I was being very picky there is a lack of Spanish dishes/Tapas.... More

    Another great week at the Monica. The staff are fabulous and remember you from previous visits. The Monica is in a great location right by the sea, lovely views and about an 8 minute walk into Nerja town centre with the lovely Balcon. The shops are great and there are plenty of restaurants. We go half board and the food... More

    We stayed at the Monica with Thompsons for 2 weeks from 21 June 2015. As ever the Riu brand lived up to its high quality , with top location and a great choice of food . The adjoining beach is quite gritty and a pair of beach /sea shoes is a distinct help. The sea shelves quite quickly and is... More

    Our 3rd visit in the past 5 years. Yes it needs a bit of updating, but we love the place. Fantastic location, friendly and helpful staff, and our kids just love the pool and games, not forgetting the infamous mini disco. We hear rumours that it might be becoming an adult-only hotel. I sincerely hope not as that will be... More
