This is a very good hotel, situated directly at the beach, with a nice garden to relax, a very good service and excellent food, one can take whatever one likes and as much as one can eat. Rooms are alright, the staff is friendly.Prices are ok.

The hotel offers high standard accommodation, the bedrooms are comfortable with a wonderful quiet ceiling fan in addition to air conditioning. The buffet food is good with plenty of fresh fruit and excellent salads. Dining room felt... More

From the ever friendly staff, the great food and of course the Nerja sunshine. Nice and quiet now that its Adult Only, which makes a big difference. My only niggle was that with... More

I would actually give this hotel 4.5 - 5 being reserved for our favourite hotel (in Gran Canaria) which others have yet to live up to! The Riu Monica is extremely clean and modern. My first impression was that it was a little 'sterile' and the welcome was very polite and efficient rather than warm. That's not a criticism, it's... More

First impressions on arrival were very good and we haven't been disappointed. From the friendly staff to the newly refurbished rooms and the amazing view of the sea from our fourth floor balcony this hotel is hard to beat. Lovely pool with plenty of sun beds and shade. You can walk out the gate and onto a small beach. Restaurants... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a week in September, half board. We were given room 118, which is above the reception on the first floor. The room was spacious and clean, with 2 huge, comfortable single beds, pushed together. The terrace was small and was facing the sea. The air conditioning was brilliant. Service. The all... More
