Nice hotel in a good spot. Stayed half board and the food was of a good standard considering it was a buffet. One night we tried the new A la carte restaurant and it was a mixed bag. A help yourself selection of tapas type starters were varied, but could have done with being a bit hotter. For mains I...

Just back from a week's stay at the Riu Monica. Stayed here about 5 years ago and the refurb is good but I do wish they had paid some attention to sound proofing the rooms. The walls are thin so you do not need to have the sound on if you put the TV on! Also you could hear the...

First time stay at this hotel and in Spain itself. All we can say is if this is a taste of Spanish service and hospitality then we cannot wait to return. We were welcomed warmly and efficiently by Jose and a glass of fizz (it was a Christmas stay). Our room was was comfortable and bright, beautifully furnished and spotlessly...

We arrived here on 31st December 2016. The hotel was absolutely gorgeous. Recently refurbished to a very high standard, the rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean. We had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the beach. Huge double bed which was very comfortable. The room was very quiet. Large balcony with a table and 2 chairs. The shower...

Like a large number of people, I have visited the Riu Monica many times since the 1990s, and this review is really for people who recall the place before the recent massive refurbishment. In particular, for people who visit in winter for an inexpensive holiday away from the worst of the UK weather. I am not perhaps the only person...

We spent one week at Riu Monica arrived Xmas Day and had 2 gala dinners, excellent value on a late deal from Bristol. The refurb was extensive but the hotel has a corporate feel, it could be anywhere in the world, nothing Spanish, the beautiful staircase leading down to the pool seems to have gone, pity. Our room was nice...
