Don't be under any illusions this is not a 4 star hotel or close, yes it's clean, the staff are friendly, the setting and views are lovely and the food is not bad at all, but if you decide to up the ante and bring the family to a four star this year don't be swayed by the rating and other reviews.
An upgrading of the beds and linen would be a good start. I'm not sure if Nerja as much else to offer though but this Hotel is definitely tired.

We did review details of hotel monica nerja.eg bad bed mattresses as very worn thin towels ,no subbed mats,bedrooms needed updating.but thought ,or should say that we had assumed that riu hotels were the best.WRONG. Monica was far from expectations.especially for how much it cost .the reviews accounted for all the faults enterered in reviews .which we encounter.but all reviews said that food quality wAs really good.but we found food quality was quite mundane as compared with ordinary hotels we have been to last year.nerja .yes. Beautiful .Monica needs regent referbishment .apparently not till 2016! Otherwise real mice week.disappointment in our first riu hotel.didnt help being two floors above kitchen.

Room Tip: Not above kitchen ,and high floor

The staff at the Riu Monica could not be faulted, always courteous and helpful. We were on the first floor but had a great view over the pool and sea. I had sent an e mail to request a sea view in the dining room and that is what we had, wonderful.The food was good but a bit repetitive,but as we were only there for a week it was fine. I do think that you need to get out of the hotel and explore the small coves and beaches to get the full benefit of your holiday, the town is interesting with lots of narrow streets, more like the old Spain. It was nice to be staying in a hotel that was used by many nationalities, in fact there were many Spanish so that says something for the place The only critism I would have is the lack of good entertainment during the evening and the trips arranged by Thomsons from the hotel, both could be improved.

Room Tip: First floor overlooking the pool were great

The hotel was terrific. The staff were most courteous and obliging in everyway nothing was too much trouble. The room service was excellent the food very good. The only thing I could find any criticism with would be the evening entertainment a little lacking. I would certainly recommend the Monica to anyone. The situation of the hotel was excellent just a short walk from the bustling centre of Nerja. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday.
