Royal Decameron Boa Vista  

This beachfront place takes advantage of its location, with sea views from the pools and restaurants.

This low-rise hotel is on one of Boa Vista’s best beaches. It’s a sandy number that has a bit of a Sahara Desert look with long and tall dunes.

Every room comes with a balcony or terrace with views across the manicured gardens. On the dining front there are themed buffet nights and an à la carte serving up the catch of the day.

This hotel needs renovation

My man and I stayed at this hotel from the 10th until the 21st of february 2016. In the first room they had given us; all the doors were affected by the moisture. The bathroom was covered with silicone and some tiles were broken. The room was full with bugs and ants, so we asked for another room. The second room also needed renovation and after 2 days we discovered that the seat in our kitchen was full of mold. The mattresses were awful. And they had a laundry problem; most of the days we didn't get our towels and we had to ask them at the reception before we could take a shower. And the hotel wasn't fully booked yet. The pool area: Tiles were broken and there were dead cockroaches beside the pool. I still can't believe they didn't clean that up. On a positive note: after a couple of days we saw the gardener spraying pesticides. Food: If you showed up early for breakfast, you had some choice. Did you arrive an hour later, most of the things were already gone and they didn't refill them. Lunch and dinner wasn't great. Mostly the same things every day, not that much choice and most of the time it was cold. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. If we would return to Boa Vista, we would rent an apartment and look for food at local bars. There are many places where you can eat well at a very reasonable price. Place to be: Perola d'Chaves (great beach bar with great food and drinks) More

Underdeveloped but beautiful

Unfortunately our stay was disrupted by the first hurricane to hit the island, which was a very frightening experience. We were allocated a suite with a balcony and a second room. Unfortunately the air conditioning was only in our bedroom and wasn't all that great. But the room was clean and serviced daily. Downsides: no free internet even in the lobby. You had to pay to connect and it was very hit and miss as to whether it worked. Upon arrival there was a bottle of water in our room and if we wanted water after that you had to buy it. This was an all inclusive resort so that was a little frustrating. But a word of advice: keep the empty bottle and every time you go to one of the bars ask for glasses of water and bring it back to your room to fill up. We did the same for Coca Cola. Food was ok and varied but a very limited selection of anything other than drink outside meal times. But there always was plenty of it. The hotel was predominately occupied by French visitors, and despite there being plenty of activities they were always geared towards the French, so we felt a little left our as English visitors. The highlight of our stay was to hire a taxi with 2 other English couples, splitting the cost it came out around £35 per couple for the whole day and we went round the whole island seeing some incredible sights including a turtle nest being attacked by crows on the most beautiful sandy beach. taking a dip in the sea and seeing all of the other sites that are advertised in tourist brochures. Beautiful island with beautiful people despite the poverty. Not a lot to do other than sunbathe and relax, so if that's what you want from a holiday then this is a great spot. We wouldn't rush back because of the solitude and because of the poor setup vis a vis basics like a Air con and bottled water. That just seemed like a con, but I hope they get there........someday.More

Kenneth H,

Winter sun

We were looking for a last minute winter sun holiday. We hadn't been to Cape Verde before so we booked this hotel from the Thomson website. The hotel was in a quiet location, I would only rate the hotel 3 star not the 4 it was meant to be. The room was very spacious, the bathroom needed updating but clean, the bedroom was spacious & had a balcony and we also had cooking facalities, with a large lounge & another balcony, which was lovely but a waste of space. We both thought it was odd as the hotel was not near any shops or supermarkets to buy food to cook. The food was very good and plenty of choice, being a veggie, always good selection for me to choose from. I did find it odd, when you arrived at the restaurant, there was nobody to greet you, you just found yourselves a table, I would have preferred to be shown to a table. Warning for ladies don't take thin heels as around the hotel the paths are all cobbled. Round the pool the sunbeds got snapped up by 0800 & I noticed some loose tiles. The beach is lovely but limited sunbeds & quite a few broken ones. It was on some days very windy on the beach & you got covered in sand but we had read about this. Entertainment was very geared up for the French guests, the team did shows mostly dancing don't get me wrong very talented but it was the same every night got a bit boring. Would go back to Cape Verde but not to this hotel.More

Lovely break

In Feb 2016 we had a lovely week away at the Royal Decameron, couldn't fault it in anyway. Not many english there mainly French but very friendly all the same. The only downside to the holiday was when we got home some of my partners jewellery had been stolen either at the hotel or the airport, which put a downer on the holiday.More
