With its great dining scene and beachfront setting, it’s no wonder TripAdvisor reviewers crowned this place the best hotel in Cape Verde in 2013.
This hotel looks a like a sandcastle – appropriate really, given it fringes one of Boa Vista’s best beaches.
Glossy lawns and courtyards surround the Hotel Riu Touareg, creating a real sense of privacy. There’s also an adults-exclusive area with a swimming pool and an à la carte restaurant.

If you want to chill,..this is the place.
Just, recently, returned from staying at the Hotel Riu Touareg, Boa Vista. If you are looking for a chilled out holiday, this place is as good as it gets. The hotel is quite new and is built in unusual style and over a large area. From a distance it gives the appearance of a Moorish castle. The rooms are well laid out and the furnishings have an African/Spanish style. In typical Riu style, the hotel has been planned to accommodate thousands of guests without the hotel seeming overcrowded. The food is good and varied and drinks of all types are constantly available. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The beach is very good, one fo the best I have seen,..miles of clean white sands, (one part is used by Loggerhead Turtles to lay their eggs.), it seemed to be little used though, while we were there. We did notice some facilities for children but I,m not sure that it is the ideal place babies and toddlers.If you are looking for a chilled holiday, the hotel has everything you need within it,s confines,....outside there is very little of any worthwhile interest, most of the Island is a parched moonscape.More

My Wife and I visited earlier this month, we had a fantastic time . Strange for me, but I am unable to mention anything bad about the staff, food, standard of cleanliness or the drinks. I would highly recommend this hotel.More

amazing and professional
Really friendly well spoken staff. Lots of cats round the hotel, one even came in our room...all seemed nice and tame though, well looked after. Good selection of food. The pool was cold however. Rooms were always clean and well presented. Great entertainment every night, including a karaoke bar!! Would recommend and revisit.More

Just returned from 2 weeks of wonderful holidays. Excellent service, food, rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly. One tip, everybody goes at the same time and all together to the restaurant, we came sometimes earlier or later so we enjoyed our meals very quiet. We enjoyed so much and will definetly come back!More
Beautiful setting, good hotel, great service , fantastic beach but.......
It is what it says on the tin. Great for doing nothing. Soaking up the sun and cocktails. Food was poor and repetitive. A bit of imagination and it might have better. Breakfast was the best meal of the day I realise catering for so many is challenge but other places manage. Weather was amazing but windy.More
