A really great hotel in a fantastic location right on the promenade with the beach. Good sized rooms with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space and kept nice and clean. Everywhere in hotel spotless and staff very friendly and helpful. Like having a specific table allocated for dinner every night and excellent choice of food. Really liked being able to...

Couldn't find fault with this hotel except no tea/coffee making facilities. Everything else including room and food was fine. Near to the beach and town. Hourly local bus to bus station. Our room was on -2 floor and very quiet.

We thought this hotel was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff could not do enough to please you. We went in late January and the weather was warm enough for T shirt and shorts but a cool breeze when out of the sun

I have stayed in three Riu hotels and all have been of a very high standard. The location of the Hotel Riu Monica is outstanding. It is in a quiet area ten minutes walk from the center of Nerja and its bars and night life. The pool area gives access to the promenade and the sea. The hotel and the...

Having stayed here last year, we knew roughly what to expect. Superior rooms with side sea view are a really good size, with plenty of storage and depending on which way they face, offer morning or afternoon sun. As mentioned by another reviewer, the limited toiletries in the bathroom is noticeable - cut backs maybe? Food quality and choice had...

We had high hopes of this hotel for our 11 day stay and were not disappointed! We were allocated a fabulous room with a massive balcony. The food in the dining room was excellent - always hot and plenty of choice. The service, we feel is what makes this hotel so outstanding as it is second to none. Everyone is...

A pleasant hotel recently refurbished. The rooms are large and comfortable with a good bathroom. The staff is friendly and service minded and tries to speak, besides English, a few words German, French, Dutch, Danish and maybe more! The food is fresh and abundant, but eating with more than 200 persons from a buffet in one big dining hall is...

Our room was on the floor under reception, with a walkway outside our balcony. We were ok with this as we didn't intend using our balcony that much. The room was very comfortable and we had a great shower. However, I was very surprised by the lack of toiletries in our room. All we had were two little hand soaps...
