Loved everything about the Riu Monica on this, our second visit since it was renovated. Fantastic sea front location near the old town. Comfortable rooms with great views over the coast from the 4th floor up. Good range of food to suit all tastes. Mediterranean Restaurant was a treat for us,so much so that we booked it on more than...

Recently returned from a 7 day break at the Riu Monica and genuinely cannot fault with this hotel. The quality and choice of food in the restaurant is outstanding. The service throughout is first rate, whether in terms of cleanliness, dining room staff, reception or in the lounge bar. Previous reviews have complained about the hotel lacking in atmosphere which...

I enjoyed the renovated Riu Monica the last 2 weeks of february 2017.The hotel looked even better than the fist time I stayed there in 2015 before the renovations. The only negative for me were the noise-levels at my room 232 on the second floor. The other guest at my corridor didn't try to close their doors silently but instead...

From the glass of champagne and warm welcome on arrival, we loved every minute of our stay at the Riu Monica. The hotel is modern, fresh and spotlessly clean. It's in a great location - opposite a number of bars, cafes, restaurants and shops and an easy 10-15 minute stroll to the main resort centre. It's also literally right on...

Took the decision last minute to book a week in Nerja staying at the Riu Monica. We were not disappointed! We booked a private transfer from Malaga airport and arrived at the hotel within 40 minutes. Check in was easy - handed a glass of fizz whilst doing this (which was nice!). Our room was perfect - on the fourth...

This was my 3rd visit to Nerja, but my first stay in the Monica. Fantastic hotel, spotlessly clean and staff all very friendly and helpful. The manager was regularly seen walking around and came into the dining room to speak to the guests. Looking forward to returning for Christmas and new year.

This is our second visit to this hotel since it has been refurbished. We had a spacious room number 740 on the 7th floor with a large balcony. The slight downside to this was that as it did not have a roof or canopy and it could get pretty hot in the summertime. We were there the first week in...
