My wife and I visited for Christmas and New Year 2013. We have previously stayed at the Riu Toureg a couple of years ago and it is very similar place to stay. Lets start at the beginning. Make sure you do get your free visa before arriving through the tour operator or you'll end up having to queue and pay...

We stayed here for ten days for our honeymoon, the resort was amazing, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We got upgraded to a suite as it was our honeymoon and a bottle of champagne in our room which was a very unexpected but a lovely touch by the hotel. I would highly recommend venturing out of the...

We went with Star tour in Norway(TUI) who market this as a family location, which it definitley is not. The childrens pool area is without showers and the playground is extremly worn down. There is no waterboilers or microwave ovens in the family roms. The only washing possibilities there is is through RUI who charge you more than we pay...

Me and my boyfriend had heard brilliant reviews about Cape Verde. We decided to give it a go...what a brilliant choice we made! We arrived at the all inclusive resort and were greeted with yummy cocktails and friendly staff. Our room was upgraded and it was huge! The bedroom was massive and the bed was just luxurious!

Lovely clean hotel with really friendly and happy staff, food choice and quality excellent, always a vast choice and freshly cooked. We had a lovely Christmas meal on Christmas day, and a champagne breakfast on the Sunday. The pool areal was also very clean but still some tiles are missing on the steps into the pool and we did see...

We were very excited about the trip but when we arrived to Riu Karamboa it was a total letdown. The reception didn't speak English very well and communicating was hard. We had to change our room three times before even getting a proper room (still mildew on the sealing). They tried to cover the mildew with paint. On the first...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel in June and would highly recommend it! The only reason we went to Cape Verde is because he's a keen fisher and this is the new *Hot Spot* for big game fishing! The hotel is 5minutes away from the Airport so the transfer is really quick! The room was a comfortable size,...

We travelled with Thomson and Luke our rep was fantastic - very helpful and very knowledgeable even though he has only been in resort for a couple of months.

Stayed at the Karamboa for 2 weeks before Christmas. Great hotel if you want a relaxing break. Staff couldn't do enough for you, had a really nice room which I had emailed the hotel about as we wanted to be on the first floor if possible and they ensured we had this. Did the 4 hour quads and the 4x4...

Our 3rd time here as it is excellent overall. Gym is improved but still not European standard. Very hot + loud music. My husband and I ,along with many other guests ask to have the window open for air and were refused. Also asked to turn music down and they refused and after several more asked they turned it UP!...
