First time in Cape Verde, throughly enjoyed our honeymoon week away. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, always pleasant and enthusiastic. Food was great, can't beat fresh fish and salads. The speciality restaurants were wonderful also. Our room was a suite (I'd definitely suggest an upgrade), very spacious and quiet, although the resort is massive and you have...

Our winter break is always an all inclusive one and we'd visited this hotel last year over a similar time - early March. We specified a room NOT on the ground floor when we booked and our travel agent then emailed to request a sea view. We were not disappointed. The rooms have been improved since last year, in that...

Excellent location for a very quiet winter break if that's what your looking for, expect no less. Although advertised as a 5 star this is slightly exaggerated. However, the resort is clean, staff are very friendly and what is on offer is plentiful and comfortable. The resort houses a number of themed restaurants in the evening, these need to be...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay. Having been to Cape Verde before we knew what to expect although we stayed on the other island Sal before. Just under a 6hr flight due to the size of the airport only small aircraft can land. We were on a Boeing 757 which are quite old aircraft with no in...

Went to Karamboa on the 5th March and the hotel is to an excellent standard for an all inclusive - food was exceptional, even in the buffet restaurant - great choice and good standard of ingredients. Beach and pool area is very good with numerous beds available. Could not swim in the sea due to the rough seas. All of...

Just returned from a week here. Wonderful and relaxing break. Flight - usual, boring and cramped, standard Thompson flight. Did offer an in flight meal tho. The transfer time to the airport was literally 5min drive, so don't waste your money paying for a private taxi. Check in very smooth and easy, met with lovely refreshing arrival drinks. Upon check...

To start I would definitely go back ! Lovely hotel and grounds with great pools, but don't expect 5 star rooms because they are not and beds could be softer. Food was good and I'm a little fussy. We had lovely bikini weather, but be warned it's windy and goes cool in the evening take a cardigan. Lovely beach with...
