We had been looking forward to staying at the Riu Monica after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. I had emailed the hotel to ask for a high floor with a sunny balcony and that's just what we got - room 748. The room was spotlessly clean, spacious with a large balcony. There was a TV (BBC1 and ITV1) and fridge with supplies of shampoo, soap etc. The safe was around 15 euros to hire. There were no tea and coffee (we took our own). The only disappointment was the bed - normally they are usually firm abroad, however the beds in the room were the most uncomfortable we have slept in - hard and uncomfortable - it's a pity when everything else at the hotel was so impressive.
There was so much choice of food - I defy anyone to not overeat!
The staff were courteous and couldn't be more helpful.
Wi-Fi was available for 90 minutes (in one go) for free in the lobby. This was per device so if you need more time take more Wi-Fi enabled gadgets. If you wanted Wi-Fi in your room it was available but also payable.
The hotel offered free beach towels too which was a nice touch. We discovered an indoor swimming pool (the water was quite cold!), and also a Gym.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again (despite the poor sleep quality)
