Just spent the last week here and the whole holiday has been first class! The Monica is great with outstanding food. It was mainly older clientele but there was nothing that was not outstanding. Perfect food with lots of choice for every meal. We are quite fussy eaters but had no problem. There is only evening entertainment which suits us...

Just returned home from a week at the Riu Monica and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were amazing, so happy and always smiling and nothing was too much for them. The hotel is spotlessly clean, bright and airy. Our room was on the first floor with large comfy beds, balcony and nice big bathroom. The food was excellent with...

We booked a last minute break at the Riu Monica and were not disappointed. The hotel is well managed with a happy staff who are pleased to help in any way they can The hands on approach of the management certainly makes a difference and their prescence, espcially at meal times, was noted. The personal approach by the under manager...

Stayed here for 2 weeks November/December and it poured most of the time! Unfortunately the hotel did not provide any daytime activities for rainy days, so got through a few books!. Did not venture in to the indoor pool as we heard it was cold. The hotel has been recently re-furbished and has some of the most perfectly designed bathrooms...

This was our first visit to the Monica, and we are very hopeful that it will not be our last. The check in was welcoming, smooth and friendly, with Lola and her team. The reception area is huge, spotlessly clean and beautifully refurbished, with plenty of comfy seating. The rooms are very nice, spacious, nicely decorated and very comfortable, with...

Cannot fault this hotel. The staff are on the ball. Food is the best we have had in a Spanish hotel. Great atmosphere, comfortable, clean and a huge bedroom with a table and chairs in the room so we didn't just have to sit on the bed. One downside is that we struggled with the wifi but as we don't...

From stepping into the hotel upon check in we were greeted with a smile a glass of bubbly and a superb quick check in. Within half an hour we were...

We came to the Monica last Sunday and have had a wonderful holiday, my husband is disabled and we had a lovely room on the ground floor with disabled facilities, we also had a partial sea view and because the swimming pool and sunbathing area is on a lower level, our room was not low down so we had lovely...

This is our second visit to the Rui Monica, this time the newly refurbished hotel is so refreshingly modern and has a continental and international feel. Really bright and extremely clean. The staff are so very courteous and friendly and are definitely the jewel of this hotel, some having been here over 28 years and the standard of service is...
