Will keep it brief as late doing review. Traveled on July 16 for 11 nights. Thompson flight, knew about no entertainment so not a problem. However plane and seats were dirty and cramped and the flight attendants going over were unhelpful and miserable, they were much better on flight back. Quick flight and short transfer. Had welcome drink and a...

Just returned from a week at the Karamboa. The weather was lovely & hot with a warm wind, we had a few cloudy days but it was still warm enough to lay out in all day. The pool area was spotless with 3 good sized pools & a nice swim up bar. The sunbeds were set out spaciously in rows...

My partner and I booked through Thomsons.. for a journey which lasted over 5 hours, the aircraft provided was a shambles, very small leg room and uncomfortable seats! (it definitely wasn't the dream liner). Hotel is very good for...

We were in a room on the ground floor of the rooms nearest the reception, next to a passage. This was a noisy room. We were regularly...

My partner & I chose this holiday as we both needed a good break, bit of sunshine & basically to relax, as we are both self-employed. As we only had a week we chose this hotel & Cape Verde as we had never been. The first impressions of the hotel was how huge it was, even though I'd seen photos,...
