Went in June and had a truly amazing holiday. The staff, service and the food were fantastic. Never had a problem getting a sun lounger, usually in the same place. The entertainment was great and the animation team went above and beyond. I would totally go back.

Just returned from a 1 week stay at the Karamboa and I wish we was still there. We couldn't fault it at all and would have liked to stay a few more nights if we could have done. The beach was superb and that's where we spent most of our time with the white sand and sound of the waves,...

This hotel has all the amenities, staff, food, sunshine with a fantastic breeze making you feel even better, not cold at all at any time. Brilliant through and through. Couldn't fault it. Money well spent and nothing else to spend on, so you can come home with money in your purse, take a chance and book you won't be sorry.

We have just returned from our 5th year running at this wonderful hotel. As always the staff are friendly and go out of their way for you. The main buffet restaurant is fantastic and caters for all. You are spoilt for choice. The hotel is spotless and they are always cleaning the communal areas. Rooms are comfortable and very clean....

Excellent hotel, staff, food, location - couldn't have asked for more. The only suggestion I would make is that the Hotel installs shower gel dispensers in the showers - would save money on the sachets and sometimes there was none available. Other than that I cannot fault anything.

Having stayed in many hotels in many different countries, can honestly say that this was one of the best holidays EVER. If you want to chill and do nothing this is definitely the place. If you like an action packed holiday Boa Vista is not the place for you. The hotel was unbelievably clean everywhere and the people are so...
