We stayed at the Karamboa for 14 nights at the end of June as a couple. Firstly the flight is not a problem, don't be put off by the horror stories on here. It's under six hours, certainly not luxury but it's fine and worth it to get to such a great resort. All the positives people have mentioned are...

We just got back , 16.7.14. After reading the reviews we were a bit worried about the flight but it was ok and wasn't as un comfortable as we thought it might be. The hotel was beautiful and clean , only thing was the cleaner was cleaning the snack bar all the time in meal times which was annoying and...

Just got back... fantastic hotel, very friendly staff, very clean rooms and complex, food outstanding (but can get a bit repetitive). The beach was great...didn't discover the pool bar until the last day which was great fun. If you want a relaxing or lively holiday this is the place to go. The Thomson rep Bianca was very helpful.

Thomson basic fight... not impressed with the flight cant be helped because of the Boa Vista airport runway is short so I have been told! so they can`t use the larger aircrafts. Boa Vista airport is small so expect for a wait to get through customs, make sure you have applied for your visa on line which is free but...

My wife and I were fortunate to have a small break away from the children and Cape Verde seemed an ideal place. My first thoughts of the Boa Vista island were just how baron and sparce everything was, then there was a huge hotel looking massively out of place. The staff are friendly and keep the rooms clean, but this...

After reading so many reviews my expectations seem to change before we left. Firstly our party was myself and wife (25) and 16 month old going for 1 week. Starting with the flight I read so many reviews about how the flight was inadequate. We thought the flight was brilliant - nice amount of leg room, comfy seats, smooth flight,...

Just returned back from our stay at the Riu Karamboa and like every other review written about the Thomson flight there is no excuse for the non existent inflight entertainment. However the flight staff were excellant and cannot be blamed for corporate penny pinching! Once off the plane the 5 minute transfer was slick and before you know it you...

I travelled to Boa Vista on the 2nd July 2014 for 7 days. After reading so many mixed reviews about the hotel I was extremely anxious on what to expect.

Flight was the worst thing about this holiday. Outgoing flight was cramped even though we were told we'd get a bit more room than normal, no entertainment or extras & upgrade for extra leg room was very expensive. Hotel, food, beach, bar etc outstanding - no need for any extras so you don't need any extra money. Please take as...
