I have always been on the fence about reviews and reluctant to make one, however this can't go without mention. If you want sun and free flowing drinks then you will have a great time here. If you're looking for the "5* platinum hotel" experience then I would re-consider or at least read a few more reviews before you make... More

Stayed at the Karamboa for 10 days with my boyfriend. I asked for a sea view room 2 weeks before we went and they said they would try and accommodate us. We got a sea view room, room number 1171 best block only a few minutes walk to all the restaurants and main reception. But also only a few minutes... More

I've been in this hotel with my family during the 2nd week of September 2014. This resort is great both in size and quality. We all loved this holidays. The hotel design makes us feel like in a palace. The facilities are in good conditions, the rooms are large and comfortable, the swimmpools are large and clean, the restaurants are... More

Shame about the island (Boa Vista Cape Verde) Yes, having stayed at RIU Hotels in other parts of the world, the Karamboa is on a par. Not that you would expect anything less from a hotel complaex which literally had a blank (if very very arid and sandy) blank canvas. So whilst it is indeed a big resort hotel giving... More

The shows were fantastic and very professional. Sangria by the pool and lots of delicious cocktails at the swim up bar. Heavenly! The thing that really Impressed me was... More

Let me get the negatives out of the way. One, coffee making facility in room would be most welcome. That's it. Now for all the good things. The hotel, food, service, friendliness, courtesy, fun, room, were all excellent. I mean excellent. This is an all inclusive hotel, both food and drink. I only spent any money, Euros, in tips. The...

Room OK, well away from the reception area, good view. It is presumptuous of Riu to have open plan bathroom / bedroom / living room. There is no privacy in the bathroom so whatever you do in there is shared with your partner, family whatever. Some may be OK with this but we are not and am aware that many... More

I have never wrote a review before but always tend to read them before I go anywhere as I do like to make my own mind up and everyone's perceptions are different. As not a lot of people probably travel to Cape Verde I felt it necessary to share my opinions. Ok so it's mixture of feelings about the hotel.... More
