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

As a late booking with good reduction went for winter sun, 10thFeb 2014. Great staff all round friendly and efficient. Abundant provision of local all inclusive drinks and cocktails, quality okayish with pre-mix limited range of cocktails from plastic dispensers then generous splash of your chosen spirit. Food excellent wide choice fairly well cooked, very good table cleaning and clearance.... More

This is a large resort complex by the beach, just 5 minutes transfer from the Airport. The first appearance is impressive – like a big sandcastle in the desert! The African influences here are predominant and there is a continuous inescapable breeze on the Island. Hotel is up to the usual Riu standards, very clean and well maintained, but really... More

I have read review after review about this hotel and really can't agree with anything that classes the facility as a 5 Star. It's a reasonable 3 Star at best. I have taken time to reflect and want to write this review as balanced as possible and whilst we enjoyed our holiday, we had to reassess our expectations and make... More

I am a very experienced Trip Advisor reviewer and am not a Moaner! However, Riu Karoumba is billed as a 5 star hotel and certainly does not merit that rating for the following reasons:- Originally allocated rooms a huge distance from reception, restaurants and amenities we were appalled by the quality of our accommodation - bedroom ok, very small separate...

I can hardly believe that we were at the same hotel, at the same time and with the same tour operator as the recent reviewer who said such dreadful things about the place! Externally, this hotel is beautiful, especially when seen from a short distance away along the shore. Internally, it is kept immaculately clean and tidy by hardworking, good-natured... More

Big let down. Was a fight everyday to get a towel and was having to wait hours for a clean one. Ended up cutting my foot in the pool due to lack of maintenance and having to stay out for 4 days. No real 1st aid and when I reported how unhappy we was at the state of the pool... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here back in late September early October and really enjoyed out stay. We had never been to Cape Verde before so we were excited to go somewhere different. The room was nice with a nice view of the sea too. We did have a noisy fan in the room and was going to complain but... More
