This is a really great hotel, the food was great, staff were very obliging. The area was very nice a little hilly in places but not steep. The entertainment was good on most nights, some left a lot to be desired.

We have been to this hotel several times and knew which floor we wanted to stay on. Having emailed the hotel prior, although they had acknowledged receipt, the head receptionist said they hadn't received it! It was not a good start to our holiday. However, after much negotiation a room was found, not what we wanted but was ok. The... More

This hotel is up to the normal Riu standards but will be enhanced by the refurbishment programmed for later this year. Very friendly welcome from the reception staff with a glass of champagne. Good sized rooms and most with a sea view. Rooms spotlessly clean on arrival and cleaned every day. Plenty of choice at breakfast and dinner. Great indoor... More

We didn't like our room when we arrived as it was above the dining room. However, the reception staff immediately relocated us without any fuss. All the staff were brilliant and really helpful. Our new room had a sea view, which was great. The food was pretty good, but we ate out a few times as you can get fed... More

We have been to Nerja many times before but have never stayed at the Hotel Monica but we are so glad we chose it this time. The Reception staff gave us a very warm welcome and we booked in and were soon in our room. We were on the third floor in Room 333 and so had great views across... More

Hotel is very comfortable and staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Rooms kept very clean and toiletries re-stocked every day. Some people have mentioned that beds are hard - I would say firm - which personally suited us and we slept very well. We were on 5th floor - lovely to hear the waves at night with the balcony doors open.... More

COMFORTABLE AND SPACIOUS HOTEL RIGHT ON THE BEACH. Staff were, as usual in a Riu hotel, very nice, the room was spacious and the sound of surf and sea could be heard on the nice balcony. Very well suited for a winter stay: comfortable heating in room by airco, indoor gym indoor, heated pool, sun-beds in the gardens with bubbling... More
