Just returned from 2 weeks in July 2015. Prior to going was somewhat concerned about the odd bad review, particularly comments such as bland food and dated rooms etc. Don't believe a word of it. We can be quite fussy about cleanliness, food, drinks etc and we found the hotel to be fantastic. As numerous people have commented, the staff... More

Lovely hotel, very clean with friendly staff and an ideal location. The food was plentiful with a good choice for all meals. Rooms were cleaned daily and kept to a high standard. The hotel has a fabulous pool area, plenty of sun beds and again is very clean. The evening entertainment is o.k. and you can see the effort the... More

Food was excellent and if you here negatives then there probably from someone whose stuck up. Drinks 24hr if required and no limits so no need for greed but we... More

We stayed here 17th July - 31st July. Hotel is beautiful and beach is beautiful, we had a couple of yellow flags but mostly green. Anyone with children would advise to stay close as the waves are strong. Good food in the main eating area. Buda restaurant was amazing we went 3 times over the 2 weeks we stayed. We... More

Fabulous spacious hotel in a lovely beach side location. Staff couldn't do enough for you, were always friendly and helpful. Pools and pool bar good lovely and refreshing, plenty of sun loungers but beware if you try to reserve your lounger with towels before 9am, staff will remove the towels - quite a good system which gives everyone the chance...

Date 14th July for 2weeks. Ok I'll give you my honest opinion about Boa Vista and the riu karamboa. Flight there - on time but plane awful!! No TVS and very uncomfortable seats. Flight back home- 2 hour delay say no more! 5 mins in coach to hotel!! Excellent !! Arrival- room not ready for an hour. But staff lovely!... More

Hotel is dated and needs some TLC. Service is inconsistent and overall does not merit the star rating We ended up having to get rid of a cockroach this evening that was happily resting in our room ! Not a great experience - very disappointed !!!!

We had a fantastic holiday at the Karamboa hotel. The staff were very friendly, the food was great, the beach was fantastic and the hotel was wonderful. There isn't much to do so it is advisable to take a book to read either at the beach or pool. Sal Rei is a quaint little town which I recommend you visit.... More

Having read other reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. On arrival all cases are unloaded whilst you enter reception & are given a refreshing glass of fruit juice, the reception is amazing itself with plenty of areas to sit as well as different statues. Once you have booked in you are given a sticker to put on your case,... More

If flying from UK you will probably be on Thomson B757, not the best, but the largest aircraft available to Tui/Thomson which can operate over the distance using the short runway at Boa Vista. No good moaning about it, just get on with it.Apparently they are planning to extend the runway here, but as with all such projects when it... More
