This is my 5th time of going to the Karamboa. That has to say something in its self. The staff all remember you, how, I do not know. They see so many people. We had a lovely room looking out to sea which was fantastic. The rooms are all kept clean and tidy. The hot water can be a little...

This is quite a large though low rise hotel on the west coast of Boa Vista island, Cabo Verde. For all the number of rooms, we never had a problem with finding a table or getting a sun bed during our 10 days stay, and the staff throughout the hotel were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The rooms were kept very...

Pools are lovely and hotel is on seafront. Very relaxing,nothing to do except relax! Not a place for anyone looking for nightlife! Sea...

The hotel was beautiful. Very clean and tidy. The food was tedious by the end of the holiday because it did seem to be the same thing most nights if you didn't book into the themed restaurants. There was a good choice of drinks but the menu didn't give a lot of examples. The customer service of the whole hotel...
