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

Having booked it online I was very happy to arrive at the hotel to be welcomed by the friendly hotel reception and offered a welcoming glass of bubbly. Our rooms were well located on the first floor with a key to the connecting room... 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

We were there last two weeks in July 2014. From the minute we arrived till we left all staff were very friendly and helpful from the housekeeping staff to the manager. Yes it is an older hotel and it is in need of it's planned refurbishment but it was spotlessly clean throughout. The pool was lovely and easy access to... More

We were looking for a holiday where we could relax in the sun, swim and enjoy good food. We were able to do all of these at Riu Monica Hotel. The hotel is located a short walk from the main town of Nerja. It has a good size swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers and is separated from the... More

returning to the Monica after a few years it was super to find it hadn't changed at all. The staff were pleasant and helpful, the room spotless and welcoming, the food and facilities were first class. The only thing that is missing from the facilities is a nice indoor coffee shop, one where we could do justice to those gorgeous... More
