This was our second visit to this hotel and there will definitely be more. It's in a lovely situation only a short walk to the Balcon. The staff are first class and food and service all over the hotel is excellent. I'm looking forward to visiting next year when they have carried out the major refurb starting in November, can't...

Everything good has been said about this hotel, but the maids, reception staff and Maria the waitress need a special mention. Nothing is too much trouble, they are always pleasant. 545 is a good room.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was a very good location. The hotel is right on the beach and we had a great view from room 441. The pool was nice to visit in the morning than hit the beach in the afternoon. The pool chairs fill quickly so get there early to get chairs with... More

For those who don’t have time or patience to read the below details, here is the summary: our stay in the Riu Monica hotel was terrible. This is a hotel that probably was a rather good place about 20-30 years ago, but nothing has been upgraded ever since. Someone gave them fours stars then and never bothered to check again.... More

Overall our stay at the Riu Monica, Nerja was good. We're regular vistors to Nerja but first time in this hotel. First of all the location in my opinion is perfect, over on the better side of Nerja, right on the beach and an enjoyable stroll into the town. The majority of the staff are upbeat and ooze of Riu...

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
