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.

Great value winter sun

This was our second stay at this resort, this time with our daughters who are in their early their 20s. The resort is well run, though a bit tired. Staff are excellent. Food is very good, but even with this being our second stay, we have yet to find the a la carte restaurant. Does it exist? It is of no matter, the main buffet self-service restaurant is very good, with a great variety of freshly cooked food. Lots of fish! Surprised to have to pay for bottled water in an all-inclusive resort. The main pool area is large and sometimes too noisy (with aqua-gym , yoga, dancing and step classes taking place with loud backing music) for folk of my age, but the quiet pool is excellent and the water is a bit warmer there too. We had no luck in getting to use any of the sun loungers on the beautiful beach as these seemed to be 'reserved' before 8am by the beach towels of those happy to see these facilities not shared among the wider guest base. Perhaps Royal Decameron can consider an alternative arrangement. Meantime the WIFI coverage could be more extensive and perhaps more reasonably priced. Overall, a happy stay, with the Thomson package being good value.More

Will be visiting a 2nd time and maybe a 3rd

We had a lovely relaxing time, the hotel is really clean, the food is good with plenty of choice, although we did get fed up with the buffet, there are 2 other restaurants an Italian which was ok was disappointed that starters and dessert was serve yourself, the fish restaurant was excellent with complete waiter service you can only visit these restaurants once though, there is a snack bar on the beach with burgers and chips. The entertainment team worked really hard and did a great job, (there is also a French team but they only bothered with the French guests). We had an upstairs room with a sea view which was amazing but talking to other guests the downstairs rooms seemed to suffer from bugs, cockroaches etc... There is nowhere to walk to from the hotel and is a 20 min taxi ride to the town, which is very small an not much to see, but if you just want to relax for a week this is ideal, 2 weeks you may go a little stir crazy!More

This was a week in a week in the sun before Christmas. After going to sal in July we thought it would be nice to try another island. Although the beach and sun was lovely the hotel was discussing. The food was cold and unrecognisable the staff were rude and the room was filthy. This ruined our holiday. 4 star it was a joke!!! More

Jane M,

"bugs,cockroaches and more bugs"

first time to boa vista having been to sal on three previous visits to cape verde. The hotel is on a lovely beach although swimming in the sea is dangerous at times with huge breakers, we were only allowed to swim one day as all the other days were red flagged. the hotels best point is the food with plenty of choice and a lot better than most all inclusives. Don't eat in the Italian restaurant near the beach unless you want to share your pasta with some large ugly looking flying things which jump up on the table, got so bad we had to move to the main restaurant. The rooms are very basic and definitely not 4 *, the hotel is clean and they try real hard if you have a problem in the room, staff attitudes range from being really friendly to being rude. Boa vista itself is small and believe me there is nothing to do except for expensive excursions. if you are happy to stay in the hotel and just relax you will enjoy up until the evening time when all soughts of insects flying/walking and hopping descend making it unfortunately not that relaxing. take plenty of bite cream!!More

Lovely hotel

Great hotel, if you want a relaxing hotel this is the place. Hotel is right on the beach, very clean the staff from the cleaners to the management were friendly all ways try to say hello in English. Food was very good and lots of choice. A few downsides were the entertainment staff awful is all I can say, very childish don't no what they are doing only spoke in French...screaming at guests been really stupid. Shame as I would give this hotel a 5 star.More
