Usual Riu standards. Went half board and seemed strange having 2 sittings in the evening,soon got used to it though. Staff friendly, facilities good. Will go when upgraded to see what change there has been. Would recommend.

During our stay in Nerja we noticed that the Riu Monica is closed for refurbishment the work is well underway and it is hoped to be complete for reopening in March/April 2016. The amount of work being done it should look fantastic on completion

We love this hotel. I hope the staff don't change after the winter refurb as they are its biggest asset. From reception to bar to chambermaid all are great and happy to help. The U.K. Visitors are older but with plenty life still in them but it's great for younger couples too. The dinner buffet will suit even fussy people.... More

#We keep coming back like a song.# We stayed the last week before closure for refurb and enjoyed as ever. We had a few spots of rain during our stay but loved it. The only dampener was that dreadful Malaga Airport, huge queues as usual caused by understaffed passport control so we don't think we will be back as these... More

We were on our travels, and had just returned from a short stay in Portugal in the Loule Jardin hotel (which I have reviewed), and were moving on after 3 days to the Griego Mar Hotel in Torremolinos (in case you want to read these reviews to compare). Check in was excellent, quick and helpful. the hotel lobby is comfortable,... More

Even though the hotel is closing for 4 months for renoes we loved it! They upgraded to an oceanfront room. It is on a nice beach and Boardwalk. They should have free chairs on beach though which they don't. Nerja is a cute town with a nice atmosphere. Buffet dinner was included and was good but they close it early... More

The hotel is situated in a quiet area. It's classed as four star. The hotel is closing for renovation in November ( according to the staff) so I won't spend ages detailing the fine aspects. Overall, the staff were helpful and pleasant. However, I will note my displeasure at Riu management at the hotel. We stayed in the last week... More

Just got back from Hotel Monica and would like to say what a lovely time we had here, so much so that we shall most probably return next October. It is well documented that the hotel is starting its refurb during the first week of November but I can quite honestly say that it doesn't really need it! The bedrooms... More

We enjoyed 10 nights in late September in this lovely hotel. The staff were all friendly and approachable. Large pool area with plenty of loungers and easy access to the beach. Public areas are clean, spacious and well maintained. Our room (446) was fine and the balcony had a great views of the sea and hills. The buffet at both... More
