We have just returned from a wonderful honeymoon in cape verde. The hotel was beautiful and the staff very helpful and informative. Plenty to eat and lots to choose from. We will definitely return thanks to all the staff for making our holiday great..

All I can say is that I'm definitely going to return to this hotel. Fabulous weather exceptional food and service. Just 5 minutes by coach from the airport this hotel is huge, it has plenty of bars, entertainment every evening so no need to get bored. The shops on the complex are extremely pricy...I forgot my shampoo and had to... More

Well, what can I say? We only booked this hotel as a substitute to the Hilton Sharm Waterfalls in Egypt as we cannot currently fly direct to Sharm due to the current restrictions. Our budget is usually £100 per person per head for all inclusive and this includes flights, so we were on a good start! Having not travelled to... More

Had 11 nights here from end October. The rooms were spacious and clean and were kept to a high standard throughout our stay. I would agree with a previous comment that a kettle would have been nice, our room was a fair way from the main hotel and it would have been nice to have had a cuppa first thing... More

We spent a lovely week at the Riu Karamboa. Room was wonderful, we were well taken care of by the wonderful staff. We enjoyed the cocktails and variety of food. Spent a lot of time by the pool reading and getting sunburnt. Very sad to have to go home, but we had exactly the recharging holiday we needed.

We have just come back from a week at the Riu Karamboa. To be honest we didn't know what to expect despite what we had read. I can honestly say we were pleasantly surprised before we even got into the hotel. The weather was fantastic . The setting was great (right on the beach) and visually impressive. On entering the...

Went for 2 weeks in June 2016. Transport to hotel from Airport - 5 minutes - but the flights don't affect you whilst there. Rooms very clean, done daily - just what is required. Food - choice of special's restaurants which are included but need to be booked is good - particularly like the African one. Buffet is exactly that... More

Please do not take any notice of the negative reviews. I was a little worried but had no complaints at all! Four of us were booked in for 11 nights. Initially this was booked for our friend’s 50th birthday celebration but after we booked, he decided to get married, so in effect we went on honeymoon with the newlyweds! We... More
