Me and my partner stayed here for one week and have just arrived home! The flight is long with no inflight entertainment however thomson do regularly offer food/drinks/duty free goods as well as your inflight meal! When we arrived into Boa Vista we were shocked at how small the airport is! It's not much bigger than your average house and... More

The hotel is a fine fly and flop. It's a jewel set in an amazing part of the globe. Weather is unbeatable but do be careful the sun is very hot with a fantastic cooling breeze, a dangerous mix. I found the cleanliness of the rooms and all facilities to be first rate and very close to spotless. Swimming pool... More

This was the third time we had holidayed within the Cape Verde Islands and stayed at the Spanish Group of Riu. They are of a consistently high standard and for an all relaxing holiday it's hard to beat, since there is very little to do here. Be prepared to stay within the grounds at this resort. The island of Boa... More

Couldn't fault the hotel especially as it's massive. They tried very hard with to give all their guests a good time. Rooms are large and placed so that you don't hear much from next door. The weather wasn't so great when we were there but it's a relaxing place, walking on the beach, played petanque, read lots of books and... More

A Thomson, all inclusive, 1 week of winter sun to Cape Verde. Things started badly as we booked 5 months out & then 2 weeks before departure the price had dropped GBP212.00 pp. Our price was locked in at the high price & we felt this was unfair to early bird bookers & left a very sour taste. We felt... More

After reading the reviews i assumed the people moaning were just being fussy however after a week here i completely agree with a lot of it. I have travelled all over the world in great hotels and also backpacking and had a better experience in some hostels than here. The food was very poor in my opinion.. lots of choice... More

Having paid around £1000 each for my first 5 star holiday to celebrate our 1st year anniversary, I was left, literally, with a bad taste in my mouth. Firstly I would like to point out that the staff are very pleasant, friendly and hard working, and this review does not reflect on them in any way. The flight : 6... More
