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...

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...

My wife and I have just returned from our 4th stay at this great hotel, we normally visit at this time of year (Feb) for a dose of winter sunshine. The weather did not let us down and we managed a few hours on the sunbeds although a little windy later in the week. The hotel has been modernised over...

Almost on a whim we decided to seek some winter sunshine and we stuck to the notion of reliable Riu. Thomson offered this hotel at a reasonable rate and flight times were excellent, direct from our local airport, Newcastle International. The weather was great and the hotel extremely efficient, clean, comfortable, with great food and excellent service. It would be...

Me and my girlfriend booked this hotel as a last minute cheap deal. On arrival we were greeted with happy staff serving champagne whilst waiting to check in- this was a nice surprise. We did however have to wait an hour for our room to ready despite check in time being 2pm and us waiting until 3pm- however the staff...

We are 5 days in to our winter break, and I must say , what a wonderful hotel. Rooms fab, food brill, facilities 2nd to none ! Hotel geared toward, lets say , a more mature age group though. We came out of season, because we got a great deal, and wanted to see if the prices later in the...

We have visited this hotel 8 times previously and we were always keen to return, However a substantial refurbishment was carried out in early 2016 which appears all black and white. It has totally destroyed the Spanish flavour of the hotel, It is now very contemporary and you could be staying almost anywhere. There seemed to be less dining staff...
