After a few years break returned to the Riu Monica for a 1 week stay. Standards are still high in this hotel that attracts a very loyal following of mature guests, many of whom stay more than once each year. Not only are the guests loyal but so are the staff, many having been at the Monica for many years.... More

We have just returned from a week at the Riu Monica Hotel and as with our past visits (ten todate) the hotel still maintains its high standards of both service, cleanliness and excellent food. All the staff are helpful and do their best to accommodate any requests you may have. The hotel is ideal for those people that wish to... More

This is a huge hotel but the staff go out of their to be friendly and helpful, so it still feels like there's a personal touch – the assistant manager even greets people on their way in to dinner. Our second-floor room had a balcony with a sea view, although the massive flat roof of the restaurant below us did... More

Recently spent a week alone in the 'Monica'. Superb food, friendly, competent staff. Very high standards of cleanliness throughout the hotel. Yes, it needs a little 'updating' and this is scheduled for next winter. Hadn't stayed here since 2007 and was pleased to find the high standards of service had been maintained. Will have no hesitation about staying here again.... More

Returned from a 2 week holiday at this hotel which I have been to a couple of times before. The staff are very friendly and efficient which is one of the reasons this hotel is so good. I have a lactose intolerance and Jose the head waiter was able to tell me which dishes had dairy products in them. The... More

We recently returned from a most enjoyable stay at this hotel. It was always spotlessly clean, the breakfasts were good although rather manic at peak times, and the dinner was in 2 sittings, 6.30pm and 8.15pm. There was an excellent choice of hot and cold food. All the hot food was freshly cooked with chefs in constant attendance at the... More

Back again we love it here, it's friendly,relaxed & feels like we're on holiday. Nerja centre always takes my breath away so romantic, people just milling around gone midnight, enjoying the waves crashing & listening to guitar's. If you want clubbing,chips & loads of larger Nerja is not for you. Even though we go on plenty of other hols we... More

We have just returned from an excellent week's stay. The hotel is the best managed we have stayed at and the staff were all very efficient, friendly and helpful. We got a room on the floor we requested, and were met with a welcome drink while our luggage was whisked away by a porter . The food quality and choice... More

Well, here we are again, just back from a week being spoiled at The Monica at Nerja and nothing changes. Just as good as last year and hopefully next year too. We e-mailed for a particular room not holding out too much hope but got the room next door which was just as good and overlooking the beach, The staff... More
