Hotel Riu Monica
With the beach just a stone’s throw away and a laid-back pool scene on offer, it’s easy to see why the Hotel Riu Monica draws people back each year.
The Hotel Riu Monica has built up a loyal following of fans over the years, mostly thanks to its good-looking pool scene.
Location is a big pull for those staying at the Hotel Riu Monica. It overlooks the beach and promenade, and the surrounding streets host a handful of tapas bars and pubs.

Our 4th visit
We don't usually have holidays in the same area or hotel. However, this hotel is the exception. We first came here 4 years ago, not long after the refurbishment. I have to say, everything looks the same, even now, and we were happy to see some of the staff still here. Rooms are lovely, every room has a sea view, and there is a little access gate to the walkway at the beach. Food is varied, with great choices. Unfortunately, we were there when Spain went into lockdown, so our last day meant sitting in the hotel grounds. This hotel always had sanitisers before entering dining room, and during this time, there were extra ones at entrance door and reception area . Hoping to return again soonMore
Fantastic management and all staff.
Unfortunately our stay was during the start of the Corona Virus, but the hotel staff did a fantastic job during this trying time, the food was excellent , and our room was spotless during our stay, may i add the Waiters, Chefs , and Cleaners, were always cheerful during this difficult time. They are all a credit to the company. We and our friends will return when this crisis is over.More
Staff are so happy to help you.The food in the restaurant is of a high standard and a very good choice each day. Breakfast is also good and the pool bar serves good snacks at lunch. If you get an opportunity have a full view sea view You will not be dissapointed Just was a pity our trip was shortened because of Covid-19 More
Rest and peace with a sea view
If you’re looking for a peaceful surrounding to enjoy your holiday this is the place to be. No crying or jumping kids at the swimming pool although there is nothing wrong with it as that is what children are and it can be pleasant, but if you prefer rest and peace during holiday here it is. A nice hotel, all rooms having a sea view mostly lateral but also some at the front, a more than decent kitchen, value for money, kind staff both at the reception, remember Juan Carlos and Antonio for instance, but also at the restaurant and even the chamber maid with a smile. Despite the lock down that unfortunately disturbed our holiday the staff helped us tremendously and no question was to much to answer so we were able still to enjoy our further stay. Nice swimming pool, close to the old center of Nerja with lovely shops and authentic streets to stroll along and the splendid view at the Balcony of Europe. Very recommendable indeed.More
