Just got back from the Monica a day ago and pleased to say that the Monica came up to the RIU standard once again. Having stayed at a few RIU hotels we kind of new what to expect but was taken by surprise with the friendly, helpful and always professional staff that were there to ensure our stay was as... More

This is our 2nd stay in 3 years and the hotel is still committed to giving 100% customer service! the staff can't do enough weather it's in the reception, restaurant or around the pool, everyone keeps giving the same high standard. We stayed half board for 10 nights even though the food is extremely good and plentiful we ate out... More

This is our fourth time to this hotel. Although it is dated and the beds are incredibly hard we love the professional and friendly staff. It is conveniently located for a stroll into the centre of Nerja. The pool side can feel crowded at times but it does have a family feel to it. This is currently a family hotel,... More

Recently stayed at the Monica, having stayed there a few times, and it never disappoints. Location, Hotel rooms and grounds, food and staff are just superb. I do disgaree with plans to become adult only; it is not a rowdy hotel and indeed does not attract families with rowdy and disrespectful parents and children. I personally believe that the hotel...

Fantastic location,easy access to beach and a short walk to town centre, Lots of beaches and coves and great views from hotel. Hotel is ready for the upgrade it is getting in November but the food was fine and the quiet location at the end of the bay is ideal.

Good location friendly staff. Noisy by the pool area. Food - a big selection lovely staff. Rooms quiet well equipped need a revamp! Looking forward to next year - no children!😊 the area around the hotel is lively and friendly. The best restaurant by far is V italiana run by Christina Norma and roberto. The best pasta ever.

We spent c. £2000 for a week at this supposedly 4 star hotel. We were shocked at the VERY POOR room we were given, it was very low and towards the back of the hotel the view was of hundreds of square metres of Black Roofing felt with Concrete building walls behind. The view of our toilet at home would... More

We spent a week at this hotel with our little 2 year old. The positives were: 1) location - nerja itself is a wonderful place and the monica is in a great location with everything walkable. There are lots of shops/restauarants outside and the balcon is 10/15 away by foot. The beach was clean and safe. 2) the staff -... More
