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.

Beautiful hotel couldn't ask for more
Lovely clean hotel, very friendly staff, entertainment team are top notch. Plenty of choice for food, bookings only taken three days in advance for the speciality restaurants so I recommend emailing and making your reservations just before arrival as you may miss out on the African one like we did as its only open Mon - Weds and we arrived on a mossy with Thompson's. Would happily return. More

Christmas in Boa Verde
We have just celebrated Christmas and the gala night was superb. The staff had gone to so much trouble, loved every minute of our stay. It was important for me to take some education items and pencils etc in Sai Rei their is a church in the slum type area that will take in items to give to the poor. The poor only have electricity 12 hours a day and they have to physically get their water. We had a guy called Moses who was in the town square take us to the area. To repay I just bought something in his shop. The hotel also had the children visit which was really lovely they looked so happy. It's great that the hotel gives something back along with employing tons of staff.More

Club Hotel Riu Karamboa (all inclusive)
Infrastructure - no power cuts whatsoever and only one water cut of abt 20 mins in all our 10 day stay. This was something we had been warned abt but turned out not to be an issue. Facilities - excellent Hotel staff - 10 out of 10 for friendlyness / helpfulness Food - very good Drink - good (not v. good as wine and beer all draft and tasted accordingly) Room -nice, spacious all you need. Best of all was location - Hotel was on absolutely fantastic beach and Sea that you could actually swim in as opposed to opp side of Island where it is too rough all the time we heard. You could walk literally for miles and miles, pick yr spot to swim and not come across any umbrellas or chairs in the way. Hotel architecture is amazing in that it blends in so well with the beach and dunes that it does not spoil the area in anyway - at least that was our opinion. One negative - and this has nothing whatsoever to do with Hotel - is that for those coming from the U.K. Thomson Airways seem to be the main carrier and hand luggage allowance of 5 kgs very stingy & rigidly enforced even though our check in wt was well under limit. Ageing aircraft and a longish flight meant a film etc would have made the experience more pleasant.More

I am not a huge fan of all inclusive package holidays but if you are to pick somewhere with great weather at Christmas time then this is the place. Having been to similar places in Mexico, Egypt and Turkey at this time of year, this place tops them all. Yes, there is nothing to do but go to the beach but the cleanliness, food and service is all brilliant. The gym is good and if you have kids, they will be well looked after. I go to Thailand often but need somewhere closer to take my mum and this has been a great holiday. The staff can do no more to help your stay. I wanted to get away from xmas but they had a xmas gala dinner which I was dreading but ended up feeling quite emotional with the effort all the kitchen and waiting staff put in. You won't have any issues getting a place at the beach. You won't be able to swim in the sea unless you want something broken but really that is the only negative. Just be prepared to do nothing! Oh and double check that you have a visa before you go!More

Lovely hotel, great pool area, right on the beach. Quiet location, friendly, helpful staff. Good selection of food, something for everyone. The Asian restaurant was great, booked in there twice. Walked up the beach to Sal, nice for a change. Good entertainment in the evenings with the options of the others. Well rested and we wiill go back again.More
