Stayed for one week in late March and were blessed by exceptional weather. We were allocated room 640 - perfect - and in line with what I had asked for in an email room request for high floor and afternoon sun. The room was huge by normal standards. It was spotlessly clean, as was the whole hotel. Our only issue...

Went with Thomson Holidays for 3 weeks and were lucky with the weather. No problems with the hotel and the staff were their usual excellent selves. Jose the entertainer deserves a special mention for occasionally going the extra mile. Luckily Terry from Torbay was staying at the hotel and kept everyone amused. The only gripe was regarding the overcooking of...

What can I say that hasn't already been said by previous reviewers, except to agree with all the favourable comments? Our room was very large and comfortable and had sun in the afternoon and evening. The only thing missing was tea and coffee making facilities. However there is a fridge/mini bar which we used for our own soft drinks. The...

This was our first visit to mainland Spain as a couple apart from a short city break to Barcelona a few years ago. We travelled with Thomson on a package deal. We are in our late 50s. The welcome from the staff team was very good and informative. The glass of chilled cava was very welcome too! Although about forty...

Hotel Monica never fails to uphold its first class service/food and, of course, staff who cannot do enough for you without being over the top from Lola and her team on reception to Samuel Sticcer, the Assistant Director, are always smiling and willing to help. Yes as some reviewers have already mentioned some small parts of the hotel are looking...

This is our third visit to a Riu Hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the chain. Yes, the Monica is a little tired especially the corridor floors and bedrooms but with a refit due the end of year this will be put right, all other areas are fine so will be a bonus if they are refreshed. One thing that...
