4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A seven floor building of 3 wings fronting the beach, all rooms seem to get a partial sea view. Spacious, airy public areas furnished with comfortable chairs and sofas. The lobby is quite grand in a restrained way, it got a 'wow' from our grandchildren! The whole place, reception, bars, dining room, toilets are sparkling clean. Grounds are adequate and... More

We visited Nerja travelling with Thomson the first week of April and stayed at the hotel. Nice hotel, lovely friendly staff but for me it didn't live up to other 4 star hotels I have stayed at.The rooms were air conditioned and I think most have a view of the sea. I did think that the charge of 15 euro... More

This was our fourth stay at the Monica (6th-13th April) and once again it did not disappoint. We were allocated a great room on the fifth floor on the west side, which was just what we had hoped for. The staff remembered us from previous visits (the last was over Christmas) and it was nice to be welcomed back. Best... More

Our third trip to Riu Monica. We decided to book a late winter break 16th to 23rd March, thought we would catch a bit of sun. No change in the excellent service we have experienced on previous visits. When I got home I realised I had lost an earing, I emailed the hotel asking if by chance one had been... More

A great hotel with just a few minor niggles. First I know we dont come on holiday to watch t,v, but when the weather is not good it would be nice to be able to watch the odd show. At present only have bbc 24 hr. news and a second rate entertainment channel shown on old style sets. I also... More

Shame about the weather- not much to do when it is raining- pool cold outside- the sea even colder- check the buses- need to validate tickets before you get on even if you have booked an open return- went to Almenacar- still very quiet and more Spanish and Malaga- very nice city- plenty to see but no signposts where you...

You will not be disappointed with the Monica if you are happy with a traditional Spanish 4* resort hotel. The public areas and rooms are spacious and well kept if a little old fashioned. The service, as has been said by all, is excellent. The whole hotel however does seem to be targeted towards the over 50s...which is not necessarily... More
