Really love The Riu chain of hotels and the Monica was recommended to us by another couple whilst we were away last year. We spent a week there from 19th June and really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is going to be renovated this winter and I must agree that it did look "a little tired" in comparison with others in... More

We stayed at the Riu Monica in early June for 11 nights which was our 7th visit to this hotel. Wonderful staff, first class food with a massive selection, and brilliant facilities. Nothing is too much trouble. We always feel very welcome at this first class hotel and cannot wait to return yet again. We met other people who had... More

I traveled independently to the Riu Monica as I was unable to book a single room via any travel operator. First time I’ve done that at it worked a treat. Got a pre-booked taxi from the airport and I was in my double sea facing room on the 5th floor in no time at all. Greeted at check in with... More

We stayed at the Riu Monica during the second week of the Easter school holidays, we have also stayed 13 times previously, usually in August, as we are a family of 5 we have to book 2 rooms. The hotel still maintains the same excellent standards that it had 13 years ago. The staff are very friendly and helpful and... More

Check in/out was very efficient. I emailed hotel as recommended to request high floor room was allocated room on floor 1 so a little disappointed. Room although very clean was very tired - beds were awful - twin beds pushed together with the most hardest mattress ever! Television worked but very old. Daily charge for safe. Bathroom was ok -...

We have just returned from our sixth holiday at the Monica which we think speaks for it's self, we always find a totally relaxed and professionally run hotel with great staff who are happy to help you in anyway, especially Pepi at the bar. Entertainment in the evenings is very good ( We miss Ricky L ) with Aqua aerobics... More

Buffet meals (Breakfast and Dinner) with plenty of choice. very near the shore about a 20 minute walk to the main square which is no hardship on holiday. Everywhere we went people ere friendly and helpful. At the time we stayed there were some... More

Riu Monica is a good hotel in a wonderful resort. All the staff were very friendly and the bedrooms were large and well appointed except for the beds which were very hard and uncomfortable, hopefully they will be changed when the hotel is refurbished in the autumn. Nice swimming pool and plenty of sunbeds around the pool and in the... More
