We booked for a short winter break and chose this hotel because of the heated indoor pool and their adults only policy. We were greeted with a glass of cava and friendly English speaking staff. Our room was clean and warm and from our balcony we had a good view of the sea in one direction and a view towards...

We went on a package tour with Thomson, flights & transfers spot on, service & rep great. Hotel Riu Monica excellent value for money, right by the beach. Spacious outdoor pool area (though too cold for the pool) but they have a smashing indoor pool and a Gym/sauna etc if you want it. Nice snack bar fairly reasonable & good...

This was our second visit since the modernisation and it's definitely grown on us. Although it's lost it's Spanish feel the reception area looks good with all the sofas and is a nice place to relax and chat. Still not sure about the dining room but the food seems to have improved. The bar area has been downsized considerably and...

Just back from a week's stay at the Riu Monica. Stayed here about 5 years ago and the refurb is good but I do wish they had paid some attention to sound proofing the rooms. The walls are thin so you do not need to have the sound on if you put the TV on! Also you could hear the...

First time stay at this hotel and in Spain itself. All we can say is if this is a taste of Spanish service and hospitality then we cannot wait to return.

We arrived here on 31st December 2016. The hotel was absolutely gorgeous. Recently refurbished to a very high standard, the rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean. We had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the beach. Huge double bed which was very comfortable. The room was very quiet. Large balcony with a table and 2 chairs. The shower...
