Beautiful hotel,excellent food,great facilities.Yes some small tiles are missing from the pool and the rooms are comfortable but not really 5* but do not let these overshadow anything,we would definitely go back. Make sure you are up early for the best beds around the pool though.

really enjoyed the hotel, its facilities and the weather - not much to do outside of the hotel, and nightlife almost non-existent so as long as you are happy to make your own entertainment then you will be ok staff can't do enough for you, and rooms are big, clean and beds are comfortable the experience of the open air...

This is a mixed review but hopefully you will see that it is balanced and conveys the whole holiday. Firstly the hotel, very nice but definitely not a 5 star property. A good 4 star at best. Those that have rated this a 5 star clearly have not been to a hotel of this standing. Simple things like, but not... More

The all in formula is very U.K. focused, but not all people are British! The food is average and the wine bad for a so called five star all in Riu club hotel. Either offer a decent wine or have at least the possibility to pay for quality. Too many people, which makes the restaurant extremely noisy. The swimming pool,... More

Returned yesterday from the amazing Island of Boa Vista. Our second visit but first to this hotel. It was the most relaxing holiday we have had as a family. The rooms are lovely and clean, the hotel staff were very helpful and polite and the hotel itself is great. Obviously, the best part is the beach - totally amazing. The... More
