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

We returned last week after a fantastic two week stay at the Riu Karamboa. Upon arrival you get a lovely cold drink and dancers outside to greet you which was lovely and a very speedy check in although our rooms were not ready straight away. As a whole you could honestly not fault the service, the staff, the rooms or... More

Before I start I should say that I'm not really mad about most all inclusive holidays so many of the things I didn't like are not particular to this hotel but to many all inclusive holidays. If you like Rui all inclusive then you'll probably like this hotel and honestly for what it cost and what you got it is... More

Have just come back from two weeks at this hotel. We had a great time. Riu hotels always know how to do all inclusive. The rooms are of moderate size but comfortable and clean. The shower is good too. The swimming pool area is big, clean and comfortable. There are a few broken tiles in the pool which can be... More

My partner and I arrived home last week from a 2 week holiday at Riu Karamboa and absolutely loved it. After reading reviews we were worried we were going to be bored as we’re more used to traveling around than staying in one place when we go on holiday – we needn’t have worried as there is so much to...

we travelled for 2 weeks from 6th-20th august and we had a fab time! It is a great place for relaxing and even when the hotel was nearly full it did not feel too busy. It is spaced out really well. I didn't think the tiles were too much of an issue but after seeing a little girl in so... More

Currently on vacation at this hotel and have to say myself and my family are having a lovely time, but tiles in the pool, broken sun beds and the extremely poor wifi needs to be improved ASAP as will be on the buyers minds when booking again. Sat this morning from 6.55 until 910 to download and once done it... More
