This was our second visit to the Monica and it was as good as last year, if not better. The hotel is run to perfection and is completely relaxing. It is spotlessly clean and although the decor and furniture is not modern it is all in excellent condition.
Rui is a great entertainer but not at all pushy so you can take it or leave it.
The food is amazing and the only critisism is too much choice - forget the diet!
There are some lovely bars and cafes directly opposite the hotel . The Jamaica which is great value at 4.95 for a bottle of house wine and the Don Juan which does enormous portions of tasty tapas - great for a very long lunch.
The caves are a must, the donkey sanctuary great fun for the kids and the Life Adventure trips, available through the Thomson rep or direct from the shop in the Balcon, are amazing. Michael is very knowlegable and the open top jeeps are fantastic for viewing the amazing scenery and entertaining the children.
A fabulous hotel, brilliant staff and a great resort to stay in.
