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.

Amazing holiday! Just what we needed.
The hotel is ideally situated just a few minutes from the small airport. The hotel was fantastic and I would highly recommend to anyone. We we a little dubious about all inclusive but it was perfect for one week. The food was very fresh and there was a huge choice. My only criticism is that the food was not labelled sufficiently and as a vegetarian I had to keep asking the staff if it was suitable... Maybe this is something that the management could take into consideration? Highly recommend the massages - particularly the combination massage - it was amazing! The gym was small but with some creative thinking you can come up with some interesting stuff. Tennis rackets were also good and tennis was ideal to play after the sun went down. Thanks to all the staff there for a great week.More

Great for young families
We went as a couple and enjoyed our week, however the complex needs a quite evening bar for those without children, food was excellent, rooms and complex very clean with ample staff, we were there in April which was very windy with grey sky's, not much outside of the complex.More

A lovely relaxing week
We travelled as couple and stayed at this hotel from 17th April for a week. The hotel was lovely, it was spotlessly clean and all the staff were friendly and quietly efficient. The food was good with plenty of choice, with beer and wine on tap throughout the day. We tried all three themed restaurants which were excellent, these do however need to be booked 3 days ahead. The main restaurant had a great selection of food which was very good and there was plenty to choose from. We had something different each day and were well satisfied. The staff here work hard and are very efficient and smile a lot. There were plenty of sun beds around the pool and on the beach so no need to rush each morning, the towels were plentiful and beautifully laundered each day. There was entertainment throughout the day and night available if you wanted it and not a bother if you didn't. We wanted a relaxing no stress break and that is what we got; fantastic. There is very little around although we did do one trip to the North of the island, which was very worthwhile. We would certainly recommend this hotel as even when we had an issue it was sorted out quickly and we were upgraded and given a bottle of champagne to compensate, well done to the reception staff. If you want sun, relaxation and don't mind being on a windy island this is for you. we expect to visit again very soon.More

Return trip did not disappoint this windsurfing widow
Easy transfer, fantastic sea view rooms, sunshine, food and the opportunity to get rid of our husbands every day - what more can us girls ask for. The staff are still very friendly and service good so if you are looking for a beach holiday look no further but remember your towel pegs as the wind is still there.More
