3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Unfortunately, I struggle to see how a hotel as large as this can claim to be a four star hotel without very very good facilities, very good staff and an abundance of entertainment. The facilities in the room (i.e. shower and AC) were fairly good. The AC was definitely a god send in the August heat. But apart from the... More

The hotel has been very well modernised with lovely big rooms with good sea views a large plasma tv on the wall, and the best walk in shower I have ever been in. The location couldn't be better over a promenade through the private rear gate to the beach, with bars and restaurants to the front and a lovely ten... More

My wife and I stayed for 7 days in August and were very pleased with our experience. The hotel has been recently refurbished to a high standard. Rooms were good and we liked the pool area. There is easy access to great beaches. The hotel is only a short walk from Nerja centre where there are great restaurants and bars.... More

Returned here after far too long an absence (15 years) following a week's cruise and were swiftly impressed with the major renovation work at the RIU Monica. Room on 2nd floor spacious, fab walk-in shower and modern amenities. Plenty of storage space in room, beds comfortable, easy to operate safe, fridge, large flat screen TV (limited English-speaking channels though), decent-sized... More

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

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
