. The hotel is designed to mass produce satisfaction and does it very well. Travellers seeking a more refined or perhaps laisser-faire approach to their requirements should perhaps look elsewhere. This is not to criticise since these kind of hotels do very well on the sun, sea and sand deal and there’s plenty of that here in Nerja. The rooms... More

My wife and I spent a week at this hotel from September 11th -18th, 2014. Rather than be repetitive I fully endorse all the comments made by BristolGas21. We asked for a room on the 5/6th floor and this request was fulfilled, had the sun in the evening which was very nice. Went on two trips one to Mijas, Marbella... More

I am a little late giving this review - a year to be exact. So, last years holiday at Riu Monica Nerja was lovely. First impression is that oh my gosh this is a plush hotel, the reception area is light and airy and a comfy place to sit and gather your thoughts. The colours are Mediterranean and welcoming. On...

Returned yesterday from a lovely week in Nerja, our first visit to this area of Spain, and we thought the town was a great holiday resort, loads of bars, restaurants to sit and people watch, at reasonable prices. The RIU Monica has everything you need for a great holiday, the staff are brilliant, always there to welcome you at evening... More

Just returned from a 10 days stay at this hotel and were somewhat disappointed in some ways. Having booked and paid for this holiday 8 months before we went and especially asking for a facing sea view room we understood this is what we would get but only got side sea view. No explanation was given for this. All staff... More

This hotel was quite an obvious choice in Nerja as we like RIU hotels and prefer rooms with sea view. But it was a bit of a disappointment. It's difficult at first to say what's wrong with it - rooms are spacious and very clean, territory well kept, staff friendly and helpful, food great and varied, but you feel it.... More

Hotel is excellent. Upgrade is scheduled for late next year. Rooms are spotless and bed sheets and towels are changed as many times as requested. Food is of a high standard with plenty of choice. All the staff are friendly and go the extra mile to help you. The Director is always accessible and chats to every guest during dinner.... More

Having holidayed in Nerja over the past 10 years this was our first visit to the Riu Monica, booked through Thomson. Our arrival and first impression was somewhat dampened when being allocated a room literally in the basement with a poor outlook and no view of the sea. Reception were very apologetic and moved us 2 days later to a... More
