My friend and I visited Nerja; a pretty, traditional, white-washed Spanish town, for a week over Easter; and opted to stay at the Hotel Riu Monica. From the moment we arrived, the staff were helpful, courteous and very pleasant. We asked for a room on a high floor, and were moved from very pleasant accommodation on the second, to an... More

Booked holiday based on TA comments and was not disappointed. On arrival we were welcomed and allocated a room on 5th floor with a wonderful view of the sea. Side view was of hotel service area which was less appealing . BUT we quickly discovered that we had very noisy neighbours so asked to be moved. NO PROBLEM we were... More

Having waited nearly a year to go abroad again, I was glad of a break to this hotel. We were allocated room 547, which was a long walk down the corridor, but had some great views. The two elderly and disabled members of our family were allocated room 48 after we emailed the hotel to secure the disabled room (no... More

Stayed for one week in late March and were blessed by exceptional weather. We were allocated room 640 - perfect - and in line with what I had asked for in an email room request for high floor and afternoon sun. The room was huge by normal standards. It was spotlessly clean, as was the whole hotel. Our only issue... More

Went with Thomson Holidays for 3 weeks and were lucky with the weather. No problems with the hotel and the staff were their usual excellent selves. Jose the entertainer deserves a special mention for occasionally going the extra mile. Luckily Terry from Torbay was staying at the hotel and kept everyone amused. The only gripe was regarding the overcooking of... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said by previous reviewers, except to agree with all the favourable comments? Our room was very large and comfortable and had sun in the afternoon and evening. The only thing missing was tea and coffee making facilities. However there is a fridge/mini bar which we used for our own soft drinks. The... More

We paid approx £475 each for 7 nights at this hotel, half board with Thomsons including return flights from Birmingham and transfers. I think this was excellent value.
