Christmas and New Year at the Riu Karamboa

Hello, me, my fiancé and 5 year old son are looking at going away for Xmas this year, this hotel has stood out at us, but we would like to know if anyone has stayed here for Xmas and new year before? What do they do to celebrate both events etc?

Thanks in advance

Hi Dave

Had Xmas 2011 and 2012 at the Karamboa and it was quite low key regarding Xmas, staff had xmas hats on and Santa arrived at the back of the beach for a short visit handing out sweets, some people dressed up a bit smarter for Xmas night then back to normal. The decorative lights were much better xmas 2011 than 2012 when they were a bit dissapointing. A few days before we had to get in line to book a table for the Gala dinner as there are two sittings and at each one it's a crazy scrum inside the buffet (all other restaurants close on this night) my advice is to sit at your table a bit until it calms down, but the food is a bit more special if you can get near it. We took a big box of Thorntons chocs for the bar staff which went down really well that night.

This year we are going to the Karamboa in November for a change, it's still the best Hotel by far on Boa Vista.
