I had sent an e mail to request a sea view in the dining room and that is what we had, wonderful.The food was good but a bit repetitive,but as... More

The only thing I could find any criticism with would be the evening entertainment a little lacking. I would certainly recommend the Monica to anyone. The situation of the hotel was excellent just...

I don't want to sound mean spirited - this is clearly a popular hotel with loyal returning guests. BUT it's not cheap and should be just a bit better than it is. The staff are helpful and cheerful, the place is kept scrupulously clean. They're the easy bit though. The problem is the dated nature of the place. The tube... More

However the quality of the food was poor and the layout of the restaurant was crowded . tables much too close and... More

Stayed here in July 2011. Whole of Nerja is lovely, I am very nervous about travelling round Spain because of how some other people act when abroad but the whole place and hotel is lovely. Would certainly recommend visiting.
