Great hotel with very helpful staff who are very polite many have worked there for years which is probably why many guests return there year after year. Very good restaurant with two sittings in the evening and you get the same table each evening for your meal so your not looking round for an empty table to sit at. It...

Excellent hotel. Food with a large choice changing every day. Staff very friendly, some have been working here a long time. Spoke to other guests some have been coming here for 20 years plus, don't need a better recommendation than that? Very clean and nothing too much trouble, extra pillows, extra towels not a problem. You can hear the sea...

It still retains the high standards, albeit as other reviews have stated, it is in need of refurbishment which is due to take place from 1st November 2015 and re opens in March 2016.

For the second time we stayed at the Riu Monica for 3 weeks in November. Same welcome, same convivial atmosphere. The room, bathroom and balcony are a little tired in places but are kept spotless every day. The hotel will close for 5 months for refurbishment next November. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. There is buffet for...

2nd time that we had stayed in the Riu Monica, and it was as good as the first time. A glass of cava on arrival set off the holiday in a good way; our (standard) room was large and comfortable with a side sea view from the balcony. Reception staff checked that we were satisfied with our room, so presumably...

Just returned from a lovely week in Nerja. Hotel was very good. Food excellent although we disliked the seating in the restaurant which was very close together, and weren't over keen on the sittings for dinner but this is a personal preference. Bedrooms large with plenty of storage. Bathrooms good if a little tired and we did have some issues...

After a few years break returned to the Riu Monica for a 1 week stay. Standards are still high in this hotel that attracts a very loyal following of mature guests, many of whom stay more than once each year. Not only are the guests loyal but so are the staff, many having been at the Monica for many years....

Recently spent a week alone in the 'Monica'. Superb food, friendly, competent staff. Very high standards of cleanliness throughout the hotel. Yes, it needs a little 'updating' and this is scheduled for next winter. Hadn't stayed here since 2007 and was pleased to find the high standards of service had been maintained. Will have no hesitation about staying here again....
