Just back from a lovely stay at the riu Monica Hotel . Very large busy hotel with guests coming any going every day, therefore you really don't connect with your fellow holiday makers which makes it feel a bit unfriendly. The buffet breakfast and dinner were very nice, so much to choose from and nicely presented. On the day we...

Our room service lady was a cracker, bright, cheerful and very efficient. The head barman, Antonio, was an absolute cracker. He and his cracking staff were very client aware, cheerful, and again very efficient. The entire staff could be described as a box of crackers, from reception, through to restaurant, to cleaning ladies, all of them wonderful, cracking people.

The RIU Monica is a very comfortable hotel refurbished 2016. The large bedroom had an enormous comfortable bed. The shower room was excellent with a large enclosure and thermostatic controlled shower. We were disappointed that there were no tea and coffee facilities in the room. We had a large flat screen tv with about 6 English channels as well as...

We stayed here for one week in January and loved it. In spite of the time of year the hotel was bustling. The public areas are huge and impressive. Our room was spacious and well furnished, with a side view of the sea, and the food in the restaurant was excellent. We did try the Spanish restaurant at beach level...
