5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have to say I was a little worried after reading some of the bad reviews on here before we arrived. My husband and I (aged 49 and 54) had booked a week in September. Our holiday didn't start too well with both mine and my husband's bags being left in Gatwick airport and torrential rain flooding the complex. But... More

Literally five minutes from the airport but with no noise at all. Lovely rooms with a special touch from housekeepers, during their daily cleaning routine. Fabulous beach to the front of the hotel, but beware of the winds as sometimes the sea it too rough to swim safely. Absolutely nothing in the area other than two coffee houses about a... More

Please don't listen to the bad reviews! Me and my friend (both aged 22) have just returned from a fantastic holiday to clubhotel Rui karamboa. The rooms: The rooms are a good size and kept clean, the cleaners would always leave something made out of our towels or pyjamas and were very friendly upon seeing them. The only down side... More

Just got back from 7 nights at the Riu Karamboa. On arrival, a very impressive looking hotel with only a 4 minute transfer from the airport! Our room was not ready at 13:30 but not a problem, straight to the restaurant for lunch. We were upgraded to a superior room which was no more superior than the other rooms we... More

We've just come back from a weeks stay here and absolutely loved it. Firstly the staff here work so hard, non stop from cleaners to entertainment. I always feel cleaners aren't given enough credit to the work they do. Our room was kept spotless. As for entertainment we thought it was great, these guys are fit and work very hard.... More

Wondered where we were landing as Boa Vista is so barren & desolate. Like a lunar landscape. The hotel is beautiful, but far too large. The food also is amazing. But, the bars & restaurant could be manic at times. Our room was very basic to say the least. (0102). Although very convenient for all places. The shower was extremely... More

We have travelled to many countries over the last 17 years but this was our first experience of Cape Verde. The island is very beautiful but not too much to do outside the hotel but I was aware of this before we booked. The travel time from airport to hotel was around 5 mins and I found the airport fascinating... More

This really is a very nice complex, but far too isolated for us (the nearest beach bar is a 40 minute walk away). But if you're the type of people who want to stay in the complex, it would be ideal. On arrival you'll receive a welcoming cold glass of orange juice even though the transfer from the airport is... More
