Loved every minute of this holiday from start to finish. The location is beautiful the hotel staff and warm and friendly. The food was excellent. Could do with another bar area in the hotel we thought. Perfect for a relax and chill out. The rooms are a little tiered wasn't keen on the beaded wardrobe doors. Overall can't say a...

What can I say, this is a fantastic hotel, the rooms are clean and plenty of drawer space, one tip though, the hair dryer isn't very powerful . The food is fantastic, my husband is a fussy eater and he found something every day. I have booked again for next year, for longer this time, the people are so friendly...

Excellent hotel, really friendly staff, food and dining excellent. The Asian restaurant was really something special. We asked for a room upgrade because we had no view, and after 2 nights wee given one of the best rooms in the hotel. Make use of the activities as there is not a lot to do outside the hotel, however the 4x4...

Loved it, it was great, enjoyed the holiday, great staff very helpful. The food wow just amazing. The room is basic but good enough to just sleep since I spent most of my days out and about. Nothing bad to report only the flight back, the plane was smaller and the flight attendants a little nasty in my eyes.

Me and my partner traveled to the Clubhotel Riu Karamboa from 9th-16th June with Thomsons. The flight itself was around 6 hours either way and would have perhaps benefitted with some in-flight entertainment but was otherwise fine. When arriving in Boa Vista, you can actually see the hotel from the airplane windows and from outside the airport, and therefore the...

Loved it Brilliant that there isn't a long transfer - you can literally see the hotel from the airport This doesn’t mean that you are inundated with airport noise while laying on the beach, far from it. You really wouldn’t know that it is so close There was a whole bus full descending on this hotel 'check in' at the...

My partner and I stayed here in July 2013 for 10 nights. We both thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Our flight was ok... very cramped in but for obvious reasons; the size of the airport is tiny! Airport was lovely though all open plan, and speedy getting through. Transfer was literally 3 mins! fantastic! On arrival we were greeted with a...

As the title implies this hotel has a serious case of OCD!! We have NEVER been to a cleaner, more well looked after/kept hotel. All of the staff go the extra mile and don't expect to be tipped.

I cannot recommend riu karamboa enough. I had a lovely relaxed week in the sun. On arrival staff were pleasant and quick to check the queue in. Luggage is taken to your room by a porter. There has been some bad reviews but I can't see why. Positives- luggage taken to room, friendly staff, very clean throughout plus rooms, free...
