These spacious suites, with their warm tones and simple furnishings, include a balcony or a terrace. They have a double bedroom, a dining area, and lounge area. You'll also find air-conditioning in the bedroom, a mini-fridge, and a TV included. Just so you know, the extra bed in the lounge is a sofa-bed.
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.
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)

The hotel complex is extremely clean and is under constant low key maintenance. The room was spacious and cleaned daily. It is situated on a golden sand beach which you can walk along or they have parasols and loungers. There is a lifeguard however the red flag was flown due to the strong currents of the Atlantic ocean.
There was daily entertainment and evening entertainment, both very good.
There was an excellent choice of food, buffet style and waiters/waitresses keen to assist if needed. I would recommend this hotel if you want a relaxing holiday with friendly staff that look after you from the minute you arrive until leaving.
WIFI is available at a small 7euro cost in the lobby area. Large bottles of water available, the first is free and is in your room on arrival and 2 euros for subsequent bottles. Free towels for the pool, changeable daily if needed.
Weather was sunny with cool breeze coming off the ocean.More

2de year on a row we where here. Nice food, lots of choices. Room very clean. Hotel is a superb holliday stay even with children, much animation. Bravo !More
Nice hotell. perfect location.
Royal Decameron is a nice hotell altough I would not rate it as a four star hotell (as they do). It's clean but a bit worn out, could use some updates. The pools were great! only downside there was too little sunbeds, there were signs that you were not aloud to occupy them, but people did anyway. so to get a sunbed after seven in the morning you had to be lucky.
the location was perfect! right on the beach. a looong, white beach! pretty big wawes, but still ok for some swimming. there were a lifeguard to. and lots of sunbeds.
the planning of the hotell was great. there were not just one big building, but every room had their own entrance and balcony/terrace.
nice and quiet area.
the food was ok some days and awesome other days. lot's of it and big variation. the dining area was clean and well kept.
unfortunately the wine was poor. but you do get used to it after a week. not much to choose from accordning to cocktails and the ones they had was nothing to brag about.
Some off the staff was really lovely, smiling and helpfull and made you feel special and appreciated. but some others seemed to have forgotten why they were there, looking grumpy and did nothing to make you feel welcome.
The animation team did almost only speak french and all their information was in french. not good. but still there were many different acitivties for anyone to join.
and also, if you are a younger female, specially travelling alone you have to be prepared to say no to a thousand invitations. the staff is really flirty, some in a nice and funny way, but some of them got a bit to close, and wanted to join you to your room. not proffessional! (and I did got the impression that this was not unusual for them to do).
but overall a nice hotell, good standard giving you a relaxing holiday.More
