Seventeen of us recently spent two weeks at the Monica. A great family holiday all round. Really enjoyed the hotel and the authentically Spanish town of Nerja. Although the hotel is due to be refurbished, it is very comfortable as it is and has a style we hope won't be changed too much. Staff were excellent and happy to accommodate... More

We have recently returned from a 7 night half-board stay at the Riu Monica, and had a fantastic holiday whilst there. The service was excellent, and we greatly enjoyed the food and beachfront location. The hotel is due to be refurbished, but it is very comfortable as it is. We will return once the refurbishment is complete.

We have just spent two weeks at the RUI Monica Hotel. We had upgraded to a full sea view room which was large and had everything we needed. The bed was hard and very uncomfortable. Everything was kept clean and the staff were pleasant. The hotel overlooked the beach which was always very busy during the day. Late at night... More

Had an excellent week here in August. The hotel is immaculate - really clean and neat, with friendly staff and very enthusiastic manager and entertainment team. The pool area is lovely, with a good atmosphere and so close to the beach you can easily nip for a swim in the sea when you get too hot. Our room was billed... More

We have just returned from a week at The Rui Hotel Monica and the hotel surpassed our expectations due to the professionalism of the staff. The Assistant Manager Sergio is very high profile,welcoming and helpful and this approach is mirrored by his staff. The location is excellent, next to the beach and within easy walking distance of the old town.... More

Having read a few reviews recently, I was a little concerned about the hotel, but it was unnecessary. The hotel is very good, exactly as I expect from a 4*. Some moans have been the lack of English TV - well, if this bothers you, I can recommend Cornwall! Thin pool teowels - OMG - they change them every day... More

Booked direct via their website which was easy to use and gave a discount. As it was August had to book half board. Most of the hotel seems to be Thompson/TUI (English, Dutch and German) and about half are Spaniards. Pluses Friendly family atmosphere Staff, other than in the pool bar, really friendly and helpful. Managers had a high profile.... More
