The location is absolutely beautiful and our rooms had a view of the Mediterranean Sea. Absolutely gorgeous! The meals were served buffet style, food was plentiful, and "above average" in quality. It appears the Monica Hotel is a popular destination for Europeans who return year after year, with most of the clientele during my visit in their 50s-80s. Upon check-in, the receptionist mentioned that the hotel was beginning to see more visitors from the USA, and she attributed this increase to Tripadvisor. Upon arrival I wanted to take a quiet afternoon nap (with the balcony door closed) but found the room hot and stuffy. I thought possibly the A/C was broken but was told A/C was not activated until 3:00 pm daily, and I was told I was lucky as I was on the cool side of the hotel. Less of an issue, though still a drawback, was that free wi-fi is not available in the rooms; a person was allocated a one-time sign-in each day in the lobby area. I would consider returning to the Monica Hotel if these policies changed.
