We stayed at the Riu Monica in early November. What a lovely Hotel, it has recently been refurbished and we loved the layout. Our room was very comfortable just what we needed for a relaxing break.The food was very good, just a little bit cramped in the restaurant, but we made friends with the people sitting next to us.

We booked this hotel fairly last minute to celebrate my 50th birthday and our friends birthday too, we read the reviews and were impressed. On arrival we were swiftly taken into reception where we were given a welcome drink and information on checking in as there was a coach full oh holiday makers. We booked in and found out that...

Loved every minute of our stay here. Clean, spacious rooms with the comfiest beds ever in a hotel, truly excellent. Good food choices, friendly helpful staff, evening entertainment was good enough to help pass the evening. Location of the hotel is great, either straight out on to the sea front or 5 minutes walk up into the shopping area. Can't...

The bedrooms are very modern a good size and spotlessly clean, we had a problem with the safe and a nice young man came from reception straight away to sort...

Overall excellent, but some safety concerns with the dining room. It's like dodgems at breakfast in particular, and the hot water urn area is waiting for an accident to happen. Management seem blissfully un-safety conscious, with the Assistant Manager actually thinking it was funny to block my progress carrying 2 pots of boiling hot water for our morning cuppas.

Hotel has a modern theme, desirable room well fitted out and a lovely walk in shower. Plenty of natural light in the bar, restaurant and public areas....

Yet another stay at the Riu Monica but the first since its transformation from the 'old' Monica. Excellent service and friendly, helpful members of staff. The food is still very good and the rooms refurbished to a high standard. However, just a couple of gripes: 1. The same thin towels ! 2. Television programmes, in the main, so repetitive -...
