As many others have commented, the hotel is in need of an upgrade. On the plus side- friendly staff, clean hotel, very near beach, free wifi for 90 mins(but must be used in one go) in lobby, superb food (taste and choice). Good size rooms Negatives- very old fashioned rooms, no tea/coffee making facilities (had to buy a kettle), lack... More

I've just returned from a week at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed my stay, there are a few minor quibbles and I'll get those out of the way first. The bedrooms do need some updating as the furniture (and the TV) are rather old fashioned, the mattresses are also on the firm side! Access to the pool, unless you manage... More

We spent 2 weeks at the Riu Monica from June 8th - our first visit - and it certainly won't be our last! Although it is due for bedroom refurbishment, the hotel was immaculate, staff very friendly and helpful and the food was first class, tasty soups, several choices of meat and fish, plenty of vegetables,good choice of sweets, lots...

Let me get the pro's out first; the staff are great couldn't do more and the food is good for an all inclusive, quality and range wise. Now I wouldn't give this a 4 star rating... it needs a refurb asap. Tv's are old and small (and thats not me being picky they really are, and low resolution too!) in... More

The rooms are spotless clean. Hotel due for an upgrade Nov 15. The location could not be better. The Four Tops night was fab. We travelled... More

Don't be under any illusions this is not a 4 star hotel or close, yes it's clean, the staff are friendly, the setting and views are lovely and the food is not bad at all, but if you decide to up the ante and bring the family to a four star this year don't be swayed by the rating and... More

The staff at the Riu Monica could not be faulted, always courteous and helpful. We were on the first floor but had a great view over the pool and sea. 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
