Lovely hotel, great pool area, right on the beach. Quiet location, friendly, helpful staff. Good selection of food, something for everyone. The Asian restaurant was great, booked in there twice. Walked up the beach to Sal, nice for a change. Good entertainment in the evenings with the options of the others. Well rested and we wiill go back again.

This has the potential to be a truly great winter holiday destination. The hotel is spectacular with classy public areas, a really beautiful beach, huge swimming pool, nice guest rooms and the whole place is spotlessly clean. It's only a five and a half hour flight from Gatwick and the transfer from the tiny airport to the hotel takes less... More

As an absolute bargain for 30 degrees and sunshine in November, it's hard to think of a comparable holiday. Never done an all inclusive before, and probably won't again unless I come back here, as I probably will. I spent a week in similar weather in Hawaii and it cost almost 10 times as much. You get what you pay... More

Just like the Caribbean without a long flight, beaches are beautiful. Hotel is spot on. Nothing to complain about really. Spent two weeks here and loved every second of it. Food was lovely, lots of choice really considering all inclusive can usually be repetitive but there was always a good choice. Reception does get really busy due to people wanting... More

We had a fantastic time here - staff are friendly, food is fine, room was fine and the weather was great. The entertainment was very good and there are loads of daytime activities if you want to do stuff. We went on the north & south trip - two half days - I would recommend. Beach was great - but...

We spent 14 nights at the Riu Karamboa in Dec 2014. All staff are very friendly, efficient and caring. The food was very good quality and had a lot of variety. We did visit the three speciality restaurants and although they were good we preferred the main restaurant. Our tour rep Jaz does a FREE walk along the beach to... More

My critic goes to the spa area beach and entertainment are great . Massages are ok but the organization really bad , staff entering the private area while getting a massage is very disturbing and I experienced it 3 times in one week even after mentioning it the very first time . Sauna very dirty and unhygienic, most of the... More
