Framed by sand dunes and hugging Praia de Salines Beach, the ClubHotel Riu Karamboa is a total retreat.
The ClubHotel Riu Karamboa has a real desert oasis feel to it. Looks-wise, the spacious property is reminiscent of a sultan’s palace – expect domed ceilings and arched windows.
Everything from the luxurious suite rooms – with their separate lounge areas and dark-wood furnishings – to the sprawling pool area lives up to the hotel’s 5-star standards.

I would first like to thank all staff at the hotel as they did their upmost to make us happy. A big shout out to Milton Deejay, Camara, Emmanuel, Lamine, the lovely ladies in the nail spa including Jussara, all in reception, porters, in all the bars and finally Ivanmelda (possibly the wrong spelling sorry) who cleaned our room 2003. We had a lovely stay here and the weather was beautiful. Lots of variety to eat so you could never get bored and the specialist restaurants were tasty too, especially the Asian mmmmm. Excellent service. The drink, well, lots of choice, just not mine. As for the beaches, well what can I say, amazing, sea a tad rough when we were there, but beautiful. You can go for a peaceful walk if you wanted to. A very quiet island but different tours can be purchased either at the hotel or elsewhere. Lots to keep you entertained though if you prefer to stay at the resort. Would I go back no but that is only because I want to see the rest of the planet. Lots do go back and I can see why. Thank you.More
Probably one of the best hotels we have stayed in...lovely!!! No need to leave resort at all....mind there is not much to see on the island really, the hotel complex is about twice the size of the "capital city". Lovely place for a restful holiday.More

Absolutely surreal Island, beautiful beaches, beautiful hotal
Booked this hotel in this island after visiting a local Thompson. Did not think of this place at all but for some April sun it was perfect from the beginning. Hotel staff so kind and helpful. Bar staff remembered our drinks and how we liked them. Always enough sunbeds by the pool. Amazing entertainment. Food always available with loads of choice. Clean hotel with brilliant room service. Evening entertainment not our cup of tea but went to Panache a few nights which was fun. Best holiday ever had, only a 6hour flight from the UK and would definatly go again. Beaches are so clean and the sand is amazing, it was windy but as you will see everyone says that but you still get a lovely Sun tan and even Sun burnt. Went to bar maramboza Monday night reggae reggae night, brilliant night! Didn't venture to the capital as most people said you get hassled and we didn't want that! Overall 10/10 holiday!More

Amazing location by the seashore
The hotel is quite large, itâs perfect spot for family beach vacations, lots of activities for all ages. Staff is nice and helpful. Room facilities are ok, and clean. Food was great, the hotel itself is located on the beach, so with very short walk you can be either in the swimming pool or at beach.More
