I have recently returned from my holiday at this excellent hotel. I have stayed in hotels that belong to the Riu chain before and I must say this hotel holds the same excellent standards I expect from Riu. The staff were helpful, courteous and I must say the assistant manager is a great assett. He was there all the time... More

This hotel was great, has a wonderful location, a short walk away from the Balcon de Europe. Food was good, plenty of fresh produce as well a variety of different dishes every evening. Two sittings but never any evidence that dishes were running short for the later sitting. Bar staff very friendly and obliging, the same people staff the pool... More

We were given an excellent room with an outstanding view to the sea. I had emailed a request to the hotel direct, asking for a quiet location within the hotel and... More

Stayed at the Monica 1st week in Sepember. Having read some of the earlier reviews we were a bit worried about what we may find. The hotel is due for refurbishment in November, yes it is quite true that there are certain areas which need updating. I suspect they will invest in new beds, replace some carpets and maybe update...

All staff from the Director, reception, cleaning and ground staff were all very very friendly . Rooms kept so clean, towels are in need being replaced but nothing too drastic, extra pillow was requested as they duly obliged. We were on the 1st floor, where there was a very limited sea view and overlooked the roof, people said that they... More

To begin, all we expected was there-high levels of cleanliness, maintenenance, good facilities, great location and views etc. But the exceptional part was the customer servicve. From the managers down to the cleaners everyone was friendly and welcoming and you really felt as if you belonged from day one. They even found time to help me with learning Spanish! keir... More

Great reception staff, especially LOLA. Hotel lobby clean and comfortable. ROOMS - towels were buff colour, very thin and hard, need replacing. pillows are plentiful, but cheap horrid sponge things. We were on the third floor, where the plumbing was the noisiest I've ever experienced! I was often woken by the sound of other guests using the bathroom. FOOD- buffet... More

This hotel may not be as modern in decor as others, but it certainly makes up for it in service. The staff are excellent. Nothing is too much trouble, whether its extra pillows or phoning for a doctor (which we needed). The hotel Directors are on hand in the Dining Room every morning and evening, talking to customers, (many who... More

My partner and I just returned on Sunday last from a 2 week stay at this Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and particularly this Hotel.
