We visited Cape Verde in October 2013 and stayed at this hotel. I was somewhat apprehensive after reading a plethora of horror stories about the place online but all these worries vanished as soon as we got there. It really is a fantastic, beautiful hotel with some of the friendliest staff I have ever come across anywhere in the world.... More

The karamboa is an amazing place! I went with my boyfriend in june for a week. Soon as i step in the hotel I was in love! Rooms were very clean and african theme decor. Cleaned perfectly everyday!

Hotel second to none right on the beach, it is a very windy island and can be really cold at night. Food really good I challenge anybody to say there was nothing for them to eat so... More

Hotel was great, food was excellent and the staff were fantastic in all departments. We were looking for a relaxing holiday and we certainly got that. The beach was private and we had no trouble with finding sun beds. The island has very little by way of trips, in fact you could visit all the attractions in one day. Development... More

I would first like to thank all staff at the hotel as they did their upmost to make us happy. A big shout out to Milton Deejay, Camara, Emmanuel, Lamine, the lovely ladies in the nail spa including Jussara, all in reception, porters, in all the bars and finally Ivanmelda (possibly the wrong spelling sorry) who cleaned our room 2003....

Probably one of the best hotels we have stayed in...lovely!!! No need to leave resort at all....mind there is not much to see on the island really, the hotel complex is about twice the size of the "capital city". Lovely place for a restful holiday.
