Just returned from an enjoyable and relaxing two week stay ( 6th to 20th November ) Superby situated hotel and just a short walk from the centre of this beautiful unspoiled coastal town. Hotel has a modern theme, desirable room well fitted out and a lovely walk in shower. Plenty of natural light in the bar, restaurant and public areas....

Yet another stay at the Riu Monica but the first since its transformation from the 'old' Monica. Excellent service and friendly, helpful members of staff. The food is still very good and the rooms refurbished to a high standard. However, just a couple of gripes: 1. The same thin towels ! 2. Television programmes, in the main, so repetitive -...

Got back last Sunday from Nerja, stayed in the RUI Monica which is a very nice hotel in a lovely town with a few good bars across the road for a reasonably priced drink after dinner. The food was ok, breakfast on the terrace in the bright sunshine was great after dark Sheffield. Plenty of sunbeds indoor and outdoor pools...

Uncharacteristically we booked a last minute deal for a November break. We booked the Riu Monica through Thompson and flew out with Monarch...literally taking off about 4 days after we decided to travel. The hotel looked good on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Our first impression was created by efficient, friendly staff who greeted us with a glass...

What can I say...the rooms are very modern and clean and the bed is comfortable, but, although it has an indoor pool, spa and gym, it really didn't come across as a 4 star hotel to me. The buffet breakfast was excellent with everything you could possibly want. Unfortunately, the dinner buffet turned into a canteen situation...again, lots of choice...
