Just had a week here and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is perfectly situated feet from the beach on the west side of town. The pool area and gardens are well kept with plenty of sun beds but there is a shortage of parasols. By the pool there is a bar and snack bar which were nice. Rooms on the...

Firstly we have to say that this hotel is going to be fully renovated in Nov 2015 so Im sure our comments will be out of date very soon. The hotel staff and customer service was excellent - e.g. reception were always friendly, we asked for extra towels (daily) and pillows on arrival etc The room was extremely clean but...

The Riu Monica is a wonderful hotel. The public areas are beautifully kept. The bedrooms are plenty big enough for two with and the bathrooms are spacious. What wonderful staff they have at this hotel. Nothing is too much trouble and they are so polite and welcoming. The hotel is in complete contrast to the trip to Gibraltar we took...

What a lovely hotel, from the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us, a late buffet was provided at 9.30 in the evening upon arrival which was very welcome. Sam the deputy manager was always visible talking the guests making sure we were happy. The whole feeling of the hotel was of relaxed professionalism, all the staff...

Just returned from a very disappointing week at the Riu Monica, Nerja. Where to begin. The list of problems is endless. We generally found the staff both lazy and unhelpful. The hotel is in desperate need of a refurbishment. It is like something out of the 1970's - the hotel that time forgot. The air conditioning is hit and miss...

I was on a month long trip in Spain and our last stop was Nerja, a beautiful beachy town in South of Spain. I booked Riu Monica after reading some of the reviews and because they offered a family suite. Upon arrival we were greeted with a glass of champagne and the receptionist was very friendly. We loved the room...

Just back from this hotel. Had a fantastic fortnight there. Just a few points though. Many reviews here have mentioned that the hotel is in need of refurbishment and that one will happen over the Winter. When I read that, I thought that the place would be a bit scruffy or tatty. Nothing could be further from the truth. The...
