Just returned from a three week break at this hotel.
Was on my own but felt comfortable around the hotel at all times during my holiday.
Hotel is well run, excellent staff, fabulous food and is very clean.
Lovely room with afternoon sun.
Great location on the west side of town.
Will definately be looking to return in the future.

Just returned from the Rui Monica and had a wonderful time. Although there are very few children, it was my sons 10th birthday and he was throughly spoilt by the staff, who I have to add were all very friendly. They made us feel very much at home. The hotel was clean and tidy and the food excellent. Nerja is a beautiful place, lovely beach right outside the hotel and nice town with some good shops. A wonderful week had by all.

A truly great holiday experience. A very comfortable room with a balcony and sea view (not really restricted as claimed) and wonderful buffet meals. We were there for an early spring break at the end of February and the weather was very pleasantly warm and sunny.
The refurbishment of the public areas is apparently scheduled for the end of the year, but they were very good anyway with the slight shabbiness adding a slight period atmosphere.
The evening entertainment was not always to our taste but was clearly enjoyed by most of the other guests. It is very much aimed at the older generation. The extensive lounge areas made it easy to find a place that was just the right distance from the music.
The staff were excellent throughout and it was certainly one of our best holiday experiences. We booked it as part of a Thomson package which was very good value, even though the departure from Gatwick meant we had to be there in the middle of the night! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor which was ideal There are lots of lifts so getting up and down was never a problem. The construction is such as to afford good sea views from most rooms.

I stayed here in December 2012.
Had such a relaxing and fun holiday. Room very good and quiet with balcony. Day time entertainment very friendly . Made to feel very welcome despite being alone. Food was fine but was not keen on the evening arrangements as there were two sittings and you had to sit at the same table every night. Made me feel like miss no-mates.
Breakfast was very good and I was joined by friends I had made during the holiday. The hotel had a spacious feel which I liked. There was a small gym which was really good and open all day.
The Thomson from Liverpool was very helpful and friendly.
I was so pleased that on my return I booked straight away for December 2013. Unfortunately I was unwell and had to cancel but I look forward to returning as soon as possible . Brilliant hotel.

We had a truly relaxing week here with our two teenagers. Staff were friendly and genuinely helpful as well as being amazingly efficient! Check in for about 30 guests at once was done totally painlessly within about 5 mins of arrival. Very impressive. Our two rooms were a good size and had plenty of storage space. Mini bar provided useful fridge space and our room was kept beautifully clean every day. Beds were fine, although pillows weren't soft enough for us! We had a second floor room with a sunny balcony - excellent! However, soundproofing between rooms not so good - next door's tv and bathrooms very easily heard and noises a bit intrusive, especially at night. Free wifi in lobby was too limited to be of any real use, so paid 25 euros for comprehensive access for the week, but still a bit unreliable for today's teenagers!! Food was great - plenty of choice and all kept beautifully fresh and topped/tidied up regularly during each dinner sitting. We always found something for each of us to enjoy at dinner, whether it was salads to start, roast meats or pasta, fresh fruits or even a chocolate fountain one night! Breakfasts also outstanding, which took some organisation for so many guests! Some of the evening entertainment acts in the bar were quite good but not really a highlight, except for the flamenco show, which was very good! We were lucky with the weather, so enjoyed using the wide selection of sun beds in the garden and pool area - we always seemed to find one free in a suitable location! We also used the small indoor pool, but it is a little cramped for more than a few people at a time and not designed for swimming lengths! There were lovely walks on the sea front right from the hotel, and walking into Nerja town centre only took about 10 mins and was on the level, so very easy. Nerja itself is fairly unspoilt and nice for wandering. Lots of interesting little shops and galleries, and cafés and bars. We found the hotel leather shop very helpful and good value. We went independently on the bus to Frigiliana one day, which is a characterful hill town (=steep walks) and visited the impressive Nerja caves by taxi (€9 each way). Despite being on a Thomson package, we didn't do any organised trips as we just enjoyed relaxing and discovering Nerja area itself. Would definitely go back, especially out of season - but sadly we were told the hotel will be closed for refurbishment Nov '14 to March '15. .
