After a 6 hr flight on a cramped plane we got through the tiny airport in minimal time and were on our way to the hotel. A small village and then nothing for 25 mins till we approached the hotel, that certainly did look like a huge sandcastle, an oasis in the distance. Check in was quick and we got...

I am currently at the hotel I I write this review, staying with a friend for a weeks break in the sun. The staff are first class and nothing ( so far anyway!) is too much trouble. The hotel is kept extremely clean and the rooms have everything you need. We haven't found any English speaking channels on the TV...

The Riu hotel is a good 4 star hotel by European standards accommodating nearly 2,000 guests and the hotel was full when we were there last week! About half an hour from the airport with the middle half the journey on unmade and cobbled roads but this is Africa!! After we had left the airport area/village there was hardly a...

I am writing this review whilst currently staying here and speaking as an ex chef of 8 years that has worked in 5* hotels in the UK having worked for Q Hotels and the Devere Group. The grounds, facilities and staff are 5* Quality of food and entertainment is the issue. Personally I would rate these at 3* maximum! Sure...

This review should help people decide between the two Islands because this time last year, I visited the Melina Dunas Hotel on Sal. So to begin with, I'd have to say that the Melina Dunas was the better of the two hotels. The rooms were better and the facilities were practically brand new and so out of the two, if...
