A pristine well managed hotel. Food is very good. Cleanliness is excellent. The pool area is jam packed tight and the sunshade system poor. There are sunshades that if you use you will affect everyone however there are individual ones in other areas if you can manage to get one of these. A special mention is Marcel the under manager...

Just back from the RIU Monica. The revamped hotel is classy and tasteful, with all the usual RIU quality. The food and dining experience is first class. Rooms are splendid with an updated air-con system that copes well. The new walk - in shower facility is an added bonus too. Cleaning in all ares of the building is also first... More

Recently stayed at the Riu Monica hotel Nerja, the refurbishment of the hotel was a very good standard but unfortunately hotel policy regarding air conditioning both of the rooms and the general areas of the hotel was not acceptable. A large number of retirees visit this hotel and is a major requirement of their holiday stay. The room air conditioning... More

There is a series of bars opposite which are even cheaper and a good supermarket. All of this within 1 minute walk. The town centre is around 5 minutes walk. The room is large... More

There are no bad points about this hotel. Location, cleanliness, décor, comfort, rooms, food, and outstanding friendly staff. We are regular visitors to Nerja but this was our first stay at the Riu Monica - it certainly won't be the last! A fabulous hotel.

We went to Riu Monica for a family holiday at the start of July this year. My parents stayed for 2 weeks but as me and my brother are in our 20's we each had our own room and stayed for a week. We all loved the hotel and the quality of the food and location was perfect. The hotel... More
