Just returned from a weeks stay in this beautiful hotel. Boa Bista is ideal for the sun lovers who don't want the hustle and bustle of some other places. The hotel is well kept with rooms cleaned and replenished daily. Plenty of staff available on all bars and in restaurants so no queuing for drinks or tables at meal times.... More

We stayed here in August/September 2014 for two weeks. If you are looking for a completely chilled out holiday, with not much to do, then Boa Vista is definitely the place to be. The staff are lovely, very friendly & so helpful. I'm not particularly fussy, but do have high standards, so - The hotel is literally a few minutes... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 10 nights, the island is certainly beautiful and extremely hot! Be prepared. The hotel can be overwhelming so if you aren't used to that or that's not what you are looking for then maybe this isn't the place for you, the hotel is lovely, the maids, gardeners and cleaners are constantly working hard...

We went to this amazing hotel in May 2014. The hotel was fantastic a great five star hotel, fab food, plenty to choose from, staff were great, helpful, polite and pleasant. The only thing about the resort is that it always had a breeze but you don't mind that with the heat. This was a great hotel and resort if... More

Please read my review and see it as a very balanced account from someone who only wishes to pass on constructive comments, I cannot be love that some reviews left about the Karamboa are true. I am a very fussy person, my standards are high, but I am honest and fair. This is a very beautiful island in the early... More

Have just returned from a week's holiday only regret being we had not booked for longer. Whilst there is little to do on the island itself the hotel was superb in every way including food, staff, pool are and, beach. Weather was exceptional but very humid. All inclusive tariff was really appreciated! Would not consider it suitable for families with... More

We arrived on Monday 8th September after a 6 hour flight, squashed in as usual im sure we have less room now than before. It was really hot and humid and the hotel looked like a giant sandcastle in amongst the dunes. We were greeted by dancers in colourful outfits to welcome us, we checked in and our bags were... More

Just got back from 2 weeks in this hotel, lovely hotel and enjoyed it, but there is no way I would describe this as a 5* hotel, but maybe in that part of the world it is. I have been to other 5* hotels and far superior to this one. Food and drink was very good, plenty of variety and... More

I have always been on the fence about reviews and reluctant to make one, however this can't go without mention. If you want sun and free flowing drinks then you will have a great time here. If you're looking for the "5* platinum hotel" experience then I would re-consider or at least read a few more reviews before you make... More
