A massive complex with lots of activities going on throughout the day. There was plenty of choice in the buffet restaurant Santiago, and a different variety of lunch and evening meals everyday. Staff are very helpful and pleasant. There are plenty of sun loungers to go round either at poolside or on the beach. The transfer from the airport was... More

Just returned from our third visit to the Karamboa, I would highly recommend a visit if you just want to relax.

The staff are all very friendly and cannot... More

The beds were extremely uncomfortable, i complained to reception who apparently fixed the situation by folding 2 or 3... More

I stayed at the Riu Karamboa for 1 week with a friend.The first thing to mention is that this hotel is massive... the grounds are enormous and it is quite easy to find yourself lost on the way back to your room. The rooms were nice and spacious and they were well cleaned. the staff throughout the resort were very... More
