Overall we had a really good experience at Riu Karamboa, though there are some things that could have been even better. Our room had a big shower, a fridge with water bottles and very good curtains to keep the sun out. But I would advise you to have a massage at the end of your stay due to such hard...

Food is better than average, several different restaurants serving different menus (pre-bookable) alongside the main restaurant which had so much choice. 24 hour bars, stocked with good quality alcohol (Do try the Caipirinha, they're beaut) The evening family entertainment was a bit rubbish on the main stage, but to the point of being funny, moving on after to the Karaoke...

Just back from our third visit to this hotel and would just like to say it gets better every year. Already booked for next January, no better place to go for sunshine in British winter time. Great staff, immaculately clean, great range of food. Beautiful sand beaches.

This hotel is lovely laid out and has beautiful grounds/features. The hotel is built in the style of an African palace and looks lovely fitting with the scenery especially when you view this from the beach. The rooms are spacious and split into bathroom bedroom, living area and balcony I think we were staying in a superior suite. The room...

Second time too Riu Karamboa had a great time weather was amazing not a cloud all week. A little busier this time round but not a problem. Cats do seem to be coming a problem entering the restaurant on an evening.... something needs to be done. Overall though a fab place.😊
