We have just returned from a lovely 9 night stay at the royal Monica. Previous reviews are mixed however I have tried to be as honest as possible. Rooms - great size, we opted for a sea view although not directly on the front had a nice view across to fuertaventure. We stayed in block 5 on the second floor,... More

Stayed august 2014. Helpful front desk. Good rooms in 4 different small blocks. Cleaned regularly. Food good for mass catering. Bar staff friendly. Serve yourself wine beer and soft drinks which i have never encountered before but it works well. Animation team work day and night with one day off. Entertainment left a lot to be desired but was ok.... More

We have just returned from ten nights at the Royal Monica, I have to agree with other reviews, firstly you do get what you pay for, and if you don't expect 5 * then you will not be disappointed. The hotel staff work really hard to ensure you are catered for, I had reason to complain one early evening about... More

The hotel itself was lovely. We knew it was a fair distance from Playa Blanca so booked car hire when booking the holiday with lowcost holidays. Well worth it. Our room was sea view facing but near the games area and bar. Not ideal at night when you have sceaming kids outside your window. We asked to be moved but... More

The Royal Monica is now a little tired and weary and could do with a little TLC. This is evident from the initial exterior view, the appointment of the rooms and the condition of the pools. All recent reviews I have read have been accurate, however perhaps they don't really reflect this is a Hotel firmly ensconced in the 3... More

Beautiful resort with friendly staff. As this was my first all inclusive it took a while to get used to the hectic pace of buffet style meal service. They may want to do something about people "reserving" sunbeds the night before by placing towels then showing up at noon... Other than that, the food was good, rooms and grounds were... More

Our first opinion of the hotel upon arrival was initially good as the reception was clean with a modern look. The following day we accidentally left both keys in the room so had to ask reception for a new set, the receptionist pulled us an extremely unfriendly look and continued to speak to us as though we were below her....
