The Clubhotel Riu Karamboa is a good all-round hotel. Good sized rooms, good pools and great beach-side facilities. The hotel offers lessons in wind- and kite-surfing, with friendly and knowledgable instructors (would highly recommend kite-surfing when going to Boa Vista). The hotel also has good tennis courts and other activities (bow and arrow shooting). The hotel however lacks charm and... More

We always choose RIU hotels whenever going for a beach vacation, and RIU Karamboa was our third time staying with this hotel chain. As always, the service, the food, the location, room quality was perfect and just what we expected. The hotel is located literally a 5-minute drive from the airport, the staff is very friendly and helpful. We were... More

This was our third stay at the Riu Karamboa & as usual we had a great time! All the staff are friendly..but we must say a special thankyou to Anali in the restaurant, she served us every breakfast & lunchtime and couldn't do enough for us. Another special thankyou to Elizabeth in the bar (near the evening entertainment area), she... More

There were three restaurants Asian,African and Cape Verde the food was excellent and service was very good. A large selection of food to chose from all was hot. Fresh baked bread every day. There are two buffet style restaurants which... More

We stayed at the karamboa for the week commencing 5th November. Normally all inclusive complex holidays are not my thing however this is really the only way to see Boa Vista. We stayed in the first block which was on the perimeter and thus no noise from the centre. I am a veggie and was delighted to be able to... More

We stayed here at the end of September 2014 for 2 weeks for our wedding anniversary. It was the first time we had stayed at a riu hotel and we were very impressed. The weather was lovely and hot and there was a full programme of activities to get involved in. I tried the stretch & relax on the beach... More

Returned again to this wonderful hotel. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Food wasn't quite on a par with last year due to a change in head chef-that said there is a constant supply of food. Try booking into the Africano restaurant for a truely wonderful experience of African food and ambience. Clean, comfotable and... More

I have recently returned from a near perfect holiday at the Riu Karamboa. Please do not take too much notice of any bad reviews. I have been travelling to different places for over 40 years and this is by far the best All Inclusive resort I have stayed in. The only reason I said near perfect is that I am... More
