Our room was on one of the back blocks but it wasn't a far walk to reception, beach pool etc. the staff are very friendly... More

Just come back for a week at the Riu Karamboa, Cape Verde. What stood out was the service from the staff - they were so friendly and helpful. Absolutely faultless - everything was fantastic about this Hotel and I would thoroughly recommend it. If you are going in January as we did, take some warmer clothes for the evening as... More

Went in January for a relaxing sunshine break. The hotel is big and covers a large area and is set on its own. It appears very well run with no shortage of staff. Buffet style food with four restaurants for the evening meal although three of them have to be booked three days in advance. Apart from the Indian there... More

This was our second visit to Riu Karamboa and we were so disappointed at how much the resort has gone down hill over the past few years. The rooms were cleaned daily but not thoroughly. On arriving to our room we ended up sharing a single bed as one of the beds looked as if it had old blood stains... More

This hotel is not a 5 star as advertised, however it passes as a 4 star resort. The Hotel itself is very clean and extremely spacious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is always some form of entertainment going on for both adults and kids (although we didn't get involved). There is a beach area which is where... More

Plenty of food choice in Restaurant, help yourself to Lager, Wines (not watered down) and hot drinks dotted around all over the Hotel. Spirits and Cocktails can be found at the... More

Some of the staff were friendlier then others, some we felt were... More
