Stayed Riu Touareg May 2019 and then again December 2019 both for 11 nights. BEST HOLIDAYS EVER! Our family of 3 enjoyed every moment of it, Rooms were spotless both times (stayed in block 5 ground floor). Food in main restaurant was great with a variety of choice and even made fresh food for our son when asked who can be fussy sometimes. Great service for drinks also in there. Book early for the a la carte restaurants, we tried the Italian and Chinese and loved both! Pools were clean and always enough beds, the odd tile missing in the swim up bar but nothing to really moan at easily fixed. Staff were all happy to help always chatting and friendly. We’ve re booked to return but hoping Covid doesn’t set our return back even more! See you again soon

this hotel is AMAZING!!! the food, the rooms, the architecture. it's actually a stunning hotel. it is huge, there is a lot to do. the food is so good that i actually got a stomachache a few times from eating too much hahah! the staff are great, i loved seeing them round by the pool as it just made my day. i love that everyone in there is so dedicated to making the guests happy. the beach is large and there are dogs there!!! please go and take water and food, we did and they were ravenous. down the beach there is a restaurant that is really nice too, but look out for the kids if you have any because behind it there are a lot of sand dunes which leads into the countryside. me and my sister went down there and if she was alone she could've easily gotten lost. my only slight complaint was the asian restaurant wasn't all that.

Second time visiting Cape Verde, but first at this hotel. It’s big, but clean and well run. Very friendly staff and excellent food in the buffet restaurant. We tried some of the al la carte restaurants and found the Italian to be ok but the Asian restaurant was disappointing. Our visit was over Xmas so the pools were a bit cold, but the weather was around 25 deg every day; it’s a bit windy too, but we managed to find a nice sheltered spot every day. We loved the beach and the sea was great, but only for adults and older kids as the waves were quite big. We saw lots of fish life (fishing is available too, just outside the hotel’s beach area), and whilst taking a stroll along the miles of pristine sand, even saw a whale breaching. There is no resort around the hotel, so you’ve either got to make the most of the hotel facilities or be prepared to go on excursions or trips. We explored the island which was interesting, especially the visit to the inland desert. To summarise, this hotel is good for couples or older families, who want to chill out around the pool or on the beach, and are not looking for wild parties and 4 am discos. Would I go there again? Yes, tomorrow!

We visited here for a week's all inclusive to get some winter sun and were very happy with the hotel. On arrival there are drinks as you wait to be allocated your room. There was a small charge (similar to a city tax in Europe) for the room we weren't aware of but came to around €15 a person for the stay so weren't too upset about this. The hotel is situated about 40 minutes away on the transfers but beware as the road is quite bumpy. The hotel itself was very large and clean with several pools and seating areas. We opted for the main pool at the front near the beach and often frequented the swim up bar. During the day the staff put on games, danced and sang which was lovely to be around. Our room was very spacious and the bedroom had air con which was a blessing. The cleaning staff came daily and stocked up the water in the mini fridge so we were never short. The food in the restaurants is all buffet except for the ones that you have to book in to. We could only get into the Italian one so book in on arrival to make sure you get in. The Japanese one in particular was fully booked. Just in terms of things to do, the area outside the hotel is very remote so don't expect to be doing any shopping. We did do an excursion to see some turtles laying eggs on the beaches which was magical but other than that didn't find a lot else we could do as water sports couldn't be done due to rip tides. We mainly wanted to relax so this wasn't an issue for us.

Nice hotel and quite nice rooms which were a little tired but definitely not 5*. Stayed in the adults only section which was a great idea but people got up at the crack of dawn to reserve sun beds and then didn’t use them! I think the hotel should have a policy and remove reserved towels like many other hotels I have visited in the past. Food was very good with a wide choice of restaurants and dining options. Hotel is very impersonal and I didn’t find the staff particularly friendly. Would I go again? No, I wouldn’t......

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with us! As much as we are delighted to read your words about our resort itself, we regret that we could not fully convince you in all areas. We would like to apologize that you sometimes had problems finding a sunbed. At check-in we tell our guests that it is not permitted to reserve sunbeds at the pool or on the beach. We are sorry to learn that not every guest complies with this rule. We can assure you that we strive to improve our hotel daily in order to offer all our guests a pleasant stay. Moreover, we are saddened to read that you found our hotel to be impersonal. We will surely look into this as our main priority is to make all our guests feel at home and well taken care of. It was a true pleasure having you staying with us and we do hope that we will have the chance to welcome you back again for a more satisfying experience! With our best wishes we remain, Hotel Riu Touareg Online Reputation Manager
