Bharti

Great location by the beach. Good food but often had to ask if the food was vegetarian as poor labelling. Friendly staff at the bar and the restaurant. Room given to us had cockorches and other insects so we asked to be moved. Our return flight was at 9.30pm but we were given lunch but we're told after that we'll have to pay for everything. Free bus from the hotel to the town was never on time as they have one bus between 2 or 3 hotels.

The best thing about my stay was...

Clean beach within minutes
9/10 Fantastic

Brilliant!!

We have just returned home after a fantastic stay at Monica Isabel. Our room was lovely and the food was excellent - we couldn't fault it. The food choices were great - there was always plenty to choose from and everything was well cooked. The staff were friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely come back.

Fantastic Hotel!

This is my second time staying here! No major issues. Pros- food is good - drink is fine (local spirits) -good location -friendly staff -great value for money Cons- in the 3* apartment part it can be a little bit of a trek to main hotel (not an issue for us but can be sims some) -rooms are a little dated and basic (again not a problem for us)

The best thing about my stay was...

Close to the beach
7/10 Good

Good Value for money

Attentive staff, more than adequate, spacious rooms, nice food. Evening bar not great. Needs another bar open in the evening so not everyone has to sit in on the entertainment.

The best thing about my stay was...

The food choice good

"It does what it says on the Tin"

3 star hotel with a good price and thats what you get. Hotel is old and looks it. Got a one bed apartment number 405A. Was fairly dated but big. Balcony was filthy dirty and needed a good hose down. Towel changes were fairly late, once past 6pm as it looks like they wait for the dirty ones to be cleaned to re-stock. Stayed half board and was glad did not go all in as gives free beer at the pool which people seem to feel they need to use. Food was o.k. Generally cold but good variety with salad being the clear winner. Well positioned for beach. Would not be rushing back, it would have to be a very good deal.....

The best thing about my stay was...

proximity to beach.

Mixed feelings

The Monica Isabel is in a lovely location, with stunning views out to sea. The only problem I encountered was the many steps and steep hills, up and down the complex. If you have any mobility issues then don't go here. The food was very good and cannot fault the service by all the staff we came into contact with. The reception especially sorted us out another apartment nearer to the hotel as I cant walk very well.

The best thing about my stay was...

The beach and sea views
