We stayed at the Riu Monica for 7 nights half board. Our usual holiday would not be a package deal but I have to say this was a pleasant surprise, we stayed half board and the food was excellent. They have 2 sittings 18:30 and 20:15, whichever you choose the food is plentiful. The drinks from the bar and the... More

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

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

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
