Location, food, staff, cleanliness all ticked the box. Would highly recommend. Located stones through from beach. Great choice of food at breakfast and dinner. Staff all very pleasant and helpful. Refurbished this year to very high standard.

From our arrival late at night to leaving early morning ten days later, the staff at this hotel could not have been any more helpful. The hotels refurb is to an excellent standard. It is clean, spacious and has a lot to offer. Food can be slightly repetitive but there are a number of lovely restaurants within a five minute... More

We deliberately chose Nerja because it has a RIU hotel, in which we have enjoyed our stay in several different countries. Recently modernised, the Riu Monica was pristine but lacked soul, obviously needing time to settle in. Marcel the assistant manager made himself available and brought bags of personality chatting to everyone through out the day, not just at the... More

We spent eight nights at the Riu Monica in early August. We are a family of four adults and had requested three rooms close together and this is what was allocated to us. Check in was a pleasant experience and we were made to feel very welcome by Lola. She wished us a good holiday and said to call if... More

I lived in Nerja from 2002-2007 and this hotel was always a favourite of my Grandparents. I can imagine before its refurb it was starting to look really dated. The refurb has transformed the hotel completely. The public areas are gorgeous and the feel is very modern, light, airy and spacious. We were here 30th July- 6th August in room... More

Love the location, love the refit, and think the staff are great. The food is good and the price for drinks is reasonable. The only moan, and the reason for four stars, is the indecision over dinner attire. The brochure says long trousers, which I haul myself into every night despite the heat, yet a large number of other diners... More

Good hotel. Excellent food. Excellent service. Must have high room, we were on first floor sea view. Not much of a view. See photo. Check outside seats before sitting as I had a white skirt ruined and my husbands trousers. Black marks all over.

We booked the Riu Monica after a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. Everything about our stay was fantastic. There was nothing you could fault, the location of hotel right on beach, staff attitude and all round level of service, cleanliness of rooms etc were all excellent.

From the time we arrived, to the time we left, the service at the Riu Monica was first class! The hotel itself is superb - several bar areas to choose from and beautifully kept gardens. The room we were allocated was on the ground floor, but overlooked the pool and the beach as the pool and beach are on a... More

we stayed at the RIU Monica in July and our overall impression of the hotel is that it fits the bill as a 4 star package holiday hotel. Positives: + good size rooms and cleaned to a very high standard everyday + beachfront with plenty of sunbeds (although they are very close together) + Food is to a good standard... More
