I would love to know where some people who criticise go for their holidays normally, cos they must be absolute paradise. Please don't listen to all the doom mongers on here. Granted it's not for you if you're after an action packed adventure. It is fairly remote but that is its charm. Get yourselves out on a trip or two....

What an amazing resort. Straight from the airport through the little town of Boa Vista and out to the amazing massive resort surrounded by endless white beaches. I enjoyed every minute of this holiday. The staff are super friendly, the food choices are extensive and very tasty. If you love healthy food there is an endless supply of sushi and...

1. Food is not great and not very hot - most of the time it's just warm 2. Buffet should be made a one way system. It's chaos and tempers fray! 3. Food is not labeled properly if at all. Sauces etc just do not have labels. It's not great quality, But the fish is good. At the chef stations...

We stayed at Riu Toureg over Christmas and was really happy with the overall experience. I had been reading the mixed reviews for approx 4 months prior to our holiday and to be honest, I think you get good value for the money. As people have said, the staff are really nice and attentive which makes for a good holiday....

3 weeks of experience - it might not be a 5* by international standards but taking all facets into consideration (sorry for the expression - 3rd world, arid island, nothing that is cherished and admired in our countries) I would still give it a 5/6*.

The hotel was very clean and grounds well maintained, the staff were decent and couldn't do enough for you! The furniture is very worn out and could do with updating, the food is so repetitive it's untrue, buffet does not change at all. Very poor selection of drinks on offer, 1 lager, 1 red wine, 1 white wine, 1 rose...

I have mixed feelings about this hotel, but I think I'm largely swayed because it was my Honeymoon, so naturally as a newlywed, I was on a bit of a high! Firstly, the Hotel staff were excellent. They were always cheerful, smiling and extremely hardworking. It rained on 4 days, and when I say rained, I mean the heavens opened!...
