Stayed here Jan 2019 very nice hotel and location on the beech with a nice cooling breeze as it was very warm. On a ravel it was a little busy but you where given a welcoming cool drink and the check-in went quickly and all the staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was well prepared and clean that was fine as we did not intend staying in it to much. The walk down the beech to town is nice and relaxing with a stop at the beech bar for a drink. The holiday was very nice and relaxing so much we have booked to go back to cape verde but this time trying (Sal) in Jan 2020 if travel is allowed.

Myself and a friend arrived at the beginning of February for a week. Very clean hotel and very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Good food but quite repetitive in terms of daily choice. Rooms were nice and cleaned to a high standard daily. Most staff were friendly especially at the bar! We met a lovely couple on a beach. Did have some problems with the dogs on the beach but that’s just me, everyone else was fine. Overall a great trip and very relaxing.

We travelled here as a couple following positive experience with other TUI hotels The hotel itself is nice, open and surprisingly large. I wouldn't normally leave a review but in the last few days of stay I came down with food poisoning. The chest and stomach pains left me in bed for one day. We tried to seek medical advice from the hotel or even just some drugs to ease it but were told that the only option was the doctor who was not in and it would cost circa £50 for the appointment. Overall the hotel was quite good but perhaps not so much value as others for same price range with TUI across the world.

Dear Tommy, Thank you for sharing your concerns with us! We are very sorry to see that your experience with us was not the best. We want all of our guests to enjoy a comfortable and unique experience with us at a great value, therefore we regret that you did not enjoy your stay as much as we would have wanted you to. It is very disappointing to read your words towards the food and we truly hope you are recovering well. We would like to inform you that the reception is by law not allowed to give medication to guests for obvious safety reasons, but we always offer to provide you with medical attention. We do hope you can understand that it is always very difficult to determine the cause of the illness without a medical diagnosis. Nevertheless, we hope to welcome you back soon to offer you the perfect stay you deserve. Best wishes from the entire team, Hotel Riu Karamboa Online Reputation Manager
