Excellent stay at a very smart refurbished hotel. It is ranked as a four star and immediately you drive up to the hotel you think very modern elegant frontage. The staff at reception are so helpful and laugh and joke with you. The Monica is adults only with buffet breakfast and dinner in its main restaurant and a pool bar for lunch. There is also a Spanish restaurant open five days a week with waiter service. The food was very good quality and piping hot when it should be, a good hot breakfast offered alongside fruits, cold meats, cheeses, cereals and pastries. Dinner always had two different types of fish grilled in front of you. Paella, risotto, and pasta dishes as well as occasionally eastern themed food. Wine by the bottle from 14 euro, beer 2 euros.

The bedroom was large loads of storage and hanging space, no tea making facilities though. Large bathroom with walk in shower no baths. All the rooms have balconies or terraces. The balconies are private with good quality garden furniture.

    We booked direct with the rui group, found this after researching to be the cheapest. I do know that Thomson do the Monica in their brochure.
    We went for 12 nights. There is an indoor and outdoor pool and a well equipped gym. Nerja is a really nice town and feels very Spanish. Lots of bars and restaurants. There are trips to Granada, Seville and into the mountains. I think it is a very nice area and lots to see and do out and about. The Monica is about 40 minutes taxi ride from Malaga airport, but regular buses run from there to Nerja.
