our family package holiday to Cape Verde. Flight Gatwick to Cape Verde. Flew with thomson v cramped plane going over. Unable to check in online unless reserved seats ( to pay extra). Cape Verde require visa which can be done online. You won't receive anything it's all done when tickets prints off at airport so don't worry. Very small airport,...

We stayed for ten days running over the Easter weekend 2017. The transfer is five minutes and as you arrive you suddenly realize how spread out the hotel is, giving it a real feeling of space. Check in was smooth and we then set off to find our room - we were about as far from the main hub as...

The hotel itself is huge and is well kept, we went for a week over Easter and were told the hotel was full, but there were always sun beds available in the hotel grounds and on the beach. The pool area is huge and the pool bar is a good size with friendly staff. There was plenty of space for...

My second visit to this hotel, this time with my family and I love it even more than the first time I came. Wonderful food, excellent staff and facilities. We aren't bothered by the cats at all, haven't seen any dogs. Beaches are beautiful and a short walk in either direction are lovely little cafes. Bedrooms are clean and have...

First of all don't beleive the moaners. 5* compared to Dubai or HK?, no but you aren't paying 5* prices. The hotel is fairly new, clean & next to a great beach. If you want to Chill for a week this is ideal. I was concerned prior to going because of some negative reviews but i shouldn't have worried. The...

Me and a friend stayed at the Riu Karamboa for 1 week in March and had the best time. I cannot recommend this place highly enough - I am still pining for it now and want to go back. The best thing about this place is the hotel staff and all the other islanders which we came across. People there...

Our stay at Riu Karamboa was awesome. They have shops, pools, even exercise routines at midday at the pools. They have self-service restaurants so you don't have to wait to get your food. Even at the pools, they have a bar IN the water so you can swim there and relax.* At certain seats in the bar there's a Jacuzzi!...

We went here 7th April for 11 nights, the transfer from airport is only 5 mins away which was brilliant after a long flight. The hotel is huge in its self to get around but the key areas are really spacious but we saw this as wasted space with a lot of potential. Good points: •Right on the beach (very...

Going away for our anniversary on an (expected) lovely holiday, I expect when to go to a five star hotel not to have cats roaming all around the restaurants and even seeing them up on the tables eating food. This is most unhygienic. The hotel was lovely but unless you are young and energetic to participate in the sporting activities,...
