Just returned from a great week in Boa Vista. Hotel is spotlessly clean and all of the staff are really friendly. The food is good, always plenty of choice. The Asian restaurant is very good but avoid the other 2 as they offer nothing. The sea is 'lively' but at least you can go in it. Talking to 2 ladies...

Travelled to Cape Verde and Riu Karamboa in April 2014. It was our second time in three years! We loved it the first time and again in our recent visit! Great choice of food even without visiting the specialist restaurants! Outside tables do have a better atmosphere although further away from buffet! We travelled with two children and found all...

Stayed at both Boa Vista Riu hotels, once at Toureg and 3 times at Karamboa and would highly recommend Karamboa as my 1st choice due to being smaller and 5 minute transfer from the airport. If you fancy a wander walk off the resort onto the beach, turn right and walk for about 45 minutes until you come across the...

Returned from our 2 week holiday on 4th June . This was our second experience at the karamboa hotel and just as amazing as the first visit. We had family with us this time and this included our grand daughter who is 2yrs old . The flight was a little boring but this was our only criticism. On check-in we...

I'm a 15 year travel consultant and write my reviews based on both my professional and personal opinion. This hotel provides a pleasant stay but in my opinion could use improvement on several areas. The pool area is well-designed with plenty of loungers and areas to sit and relax. Unfortunately the pool temperature is way too cold and could benefit...

The Club Hotel Riu Karamboa is large hotel set alone in sand dunes... there isn't anything near it. The hotel sits on the beach and has large pools , buffet restaurants and speciality restaurants, pool bars and non pool bars. Although tour operators such as Thomson rate it as 5 star it isn't a European 5 star. The Island is...

It is the best holiday I have had so far and I definitely would return year after year. Such a friendly atmosphere with very friendly people that work there especially the animation team! A pretty place to be with family and they involve everyone! Would recommend!

Fab hol, room pleasant, food nice however unfortunately there just isnt enough to do in boa vista. The quad biking was good but for £90 for one quad even sharing a quad made it an expensive afternoon. Our room was the furthest away from the lobby which was a pain, especially when you forgot your camera or sun cream. Id...

… is the moto of the people of Boa Vista and the laid back ‘no stress’ lifestyle surely rubs off on you. We had a great week at the karamboa, fantastic location, friendly locals and staff couldn’t ask for more. Our only gripe is we wish we’d stayed for two weeks…. Sure its not a 5* hotel by UK standards...
