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.

Booked about 5 weeks ago as the holiday was not far off half price with Thomson- absolute bargain and we still can't understand why it was so heavily reduced but am not complaining.

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

Just returned from a week long holiday at Riu Monica. The hotel was spotless, the room was lovely and most importantly the choice of food was superb and it was hot not like most hotels abroad. The only criticism would be the towels were poor both the room and the pool towels could do with an upgrade to match the... More

Ok may send a bit nit picky but it was good enough to leave only some small room for improvement......soup spoons were too big for the soup bowl, yes i know but it matters as the soup was good and the last dregs not attainable. Sunbeds were very uncomfortable and some foam mattresses are needed..most important. Deaf all excellent, food... More

We stayed here in June for 10 nights on a D/B&B basis which included return flights and airport transfers. We had requested a full seaview from our hotel balcony which could not be promised at booking, but was provided on arrival. A very warm welcome was given with a glass of champagne on arrival and the hotel room didn't disappoint.... More

Just got back from a week at this hotel. My friend and I had not been away together for 40 years and I can say it was well worth waiting for. We stayed in room 422, great view of the beach/sea. Lovely clean room, only snag no tea/coffee facilities but not a deal breaker. Couldn't get the safe to close,... More

We'd emailed beforehand asking for a room on a higher floor snd was given a lovely big clean room on 4th floor looking over triangle sitting area and could still see the sea which was a bonus.
