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.
