Just returned from this hotel after 2weeks. Was an ok holiday, nothing to write home about, I've been and seen and wont go back unless its a cheap cheap deal. Nice weather and better than Spain but you are paying a premium for a not as described/expected service. The hotel is huge, I mean really huge so you will get... More

Located next to a great beach this Hotel could be so much better if it made the effort. Rooms are dark with poor aircon and the most uncomfortable beds I have ever encountered. Main dining room is vast and gets very crowded - food reasonable but choice gets repetitive after a couple of days.

So I was really excited to go as feedback from other people who had been sounded really good! Therefore I went and booked and paid for a 5 star service for one week. The hotel is lovely and very open and clearly planned and marketed to what it is. However every place has it's ups and downs. The staff are... More

This hotel was the best part of our Boa Vista holidays in 2013. The food was nice and the hotel it self was like a palace. The problems start when you look in greater details though. I personaly did not like the rooms, sorry but these were annoing and not a (at that time) 5 star standard. Secondly the staff...you... More

Returned from a truly relaxing 7 night break at this hotel. Had a standard room, was fine, whole of the complex is run extremely well, and exceptionally clean. Food is of a great standard and ample choice. The Asian restaurant was wonderful too and spa is just amazing. Would go back at the drop of a hat. Perfect for a... More

We read some of the reviews before booking so we werent expecting 5 star luxury, although we were a bit more realistic than some reviwers due to previous experience of all inclusive family resorts. The staff really make this resort, the entertainment staff were fantastic, full of energy and the shows, classes etc were all really good. The rest of... More

Just came back from staying at the riu Karamboa, simply amazing. Anyone who complains about is place must obviously live in Buckingham palace as that can be the only place which supersedes it! The rooms were immaculate, cleaned everyday, fresh towels, and special touches on the beds with towels shaped into swans and bows. The food was awesome, there was... More

I have read several reviews on this hotel, and many have commented how little there is to do there. If you want action, go to Florida! Boa Vista is a sleepy island which is largely unspoilt, and the Riu Karamboa is its oasis. Just got back from a week in this large hotel, and having previously stayed in a Riu... More
