5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Easy transfer, fantastic sea view rooms, sunshine, food and the opportunity to get rid of our husbands every day - what more can us girls ask for. The staff are still very friendly and service good so if you are looking for a beach holiday look no further but remember your towel pegs as the wind is still there.

Visited the Riu Karamboa 9th April for a week as a couple. Being a Riu you generally accept you are going to get an excellent standard of accommodation, service and amenities. Good points: the hotel staff are friendly on the whole, and rooms were cleaned to a high standard. Bad points: booked through Thomson who rate this hotel as a... More

Having been to this hotel myself I would like to point out that the negative review below is utter rubbish. The hotel has never been rated 5 star by any tour operator and star ratings differ country to country so yes it's not going to be a 5 star in Mexico. Thomson rate this hotel a 5T not a 5... More

Travelled as a family of 4 with a 7&4 year old. Had a great time. Weather was hit and miss. Cloudy mostly but some good bits of sun but unfortunately windy was the prevailing forecast. Talked to some locals who said that it was worse in February and sometimes flights were cancelled as it was that windy. The beach looks... More

We stayed here in the Easter holidays with family and friends. The hotel is very big and looks like a giant sand castle! The staff here are excellent, bar staff, reception staff, cleaners, managers and entertainment team (although the guy in charge of the entertainment team is a bit past it). We were checked in efficiently and our room was... More
