Excellent hotel location fantastic food really good bar drinks good staff excellent rooms excellent largest hotel room we have ever had loads of drawers and wardrobe space usually we stay in H10 hotels thought RIU Monica had the edge only negative was no cabs with breakfast but it did appear on our last day we would certainly return to this hotel but looking at RIU in Torromlinos next
Excellent hotel and staff
The staff at the hotel made our holiday, they really looked after us, nothing was too much trouble and they kept exceeding my expectations with every new thing they did. I could not fault one member of staff and would recommend this hotel to anybody.
We would like to keep this hotel a secret......
......but we do want to say that we have just spent a relaxing two weeks at the Riu Monica. We were very happy with our east-facing room on floor 5 which was kept absolutely spotless by the lovely chambermaid and we were impressed by the size of the room, the size of the super comfy bed and the number of drawers and the wardrobe space available. We were lucky to have sunshine every day but one and I never had a problem finding a sunbed by the pool even when the early morning sunbed baggers had been out! In any case the beach is just outside the hotel so there's plenty of room for everyone. My husband is not a lover of the sunshine and because the hotel is so comfortable he was able to take advantage of all the cosy seating areas in the shade. Although I believe that the hotel was very full, because it is so spacious it didn't appear so. The lifts are also very efficient. Every single member of staff was happy and polite and nothing was too much trouble, which I think is a sign of good management creating a happy team. We enjoyed the food generally although it did become a little monotonous after the first week - maybe few different desserts could be added to ring the changes. The restaurant is so well organized and the staff totally professional. Riu Monica is now our happy place and we will certainly be returning to this beautiful town.
Really good holiday, no complaints whatsoever, facilities, cleanliness, staff, food, location all first class, I have no hesitation recommending this hotel. It was my partners birthday when we were there, the computer system picked this up and the hotel left a chilled bottle of wine in our room, nice touch!
Perfect stay in Nerja
what a fabulous hotel , food, service and staff are all superb. We had a room on the 4th floor that overlooking the pool and sea. We stayed half board and the food was excellent. The outdoor terrace for breakfast was perfect. Every night there was entertainment if you wanted it. Lovely couple of bars across the road and a short walk to the Balcon of Europe for lots of shops bars and restaurants. will definitely be returning
