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.

If travelling with Thomson take some cash to buy a cup of tea or coffee after your meal. All you get is a small orange juice with breakfast and a water with meal coming home. Take some antihistamine tablets. Lots of holiday makers had allergies especially with eyes. Probably due to the beautiful flowers. Flat shoes or pretty sandals are recommended. The hotel has cobbles as well as the main town. Pool / beach towels are changed when you want so don't worry about taking own towels. Join in entertainment if you want or just veg out on a sun lounger. Entertainment crew don't push. Do try out the Italian and fish restaurants. Book in the morning for that evening. Enjoyed both. Duty free is very very small so order any duty free on the outward journey. Thomson don't have a huge return duty free! Euros are accepted readily so you don't have to worry about their own currency. Take some high protection sun cream. Shop in hotel does not open during the afternoons and has very little stock.More

2 years on the trot!

Again the Hotel management and staff excelled in endeavouring our stay after last years lovely time we came home and booked for this year sadly we probably won't be going again as there is more fabulous places to visit But we feel privileged to have seen life as it is and experienced the terrain (vip trip Thomson mixed feelings) before it all expands and money takes over Thomson let the side down this year but thats life Anyone wanting a white sands n blue seas and nothing to do in only 6hrs its a must and I would never hesitate staying in the Cameron!!More

A good review needs positives and negatives

OK, let's get started. Overall a very enjoyable holiday! Firstly, yes it is windy, positive - this keeps you cool all day long, no lying on the lounger with sweat pouring out of you. Beware you will not feel like you are burning, but you will be if you don't factor up. Negative - does get a bit chilly in the evening, especially if you're a bit burned. Take jeans and some long sleeves, you'll thank me for that. Food is plentiful in the restaurant, lots of fresh fruit and salads. The main part is Buffett style so as always with this kind of service you can get food that's not very hot at times (think they need some new heat bulbs). Always lots of choice even for the picky eater, watch for fresh trays coming out to get the hot stuff. Fish was the best dish in my opinion. Pathways are all cobbled, as are all the roads on the island, I don't think they are going to ship a couple of ton of Tarmac in just so we can wear stilettos. My advice take wedges if you really want a heal, or go in flats and give your calves a holiday too. Is very very French, they weren't that bad, we met a couple of friendly ones. Wear a jumper thrown over you're shoulders and you'll get lots of BonJours'. All the entertainment is set up mainly for them, but if you listen carefully and try to it is possible to join in. But we are all English so we usually don't. Rooms were basic but ours was clean and tidy. No brewing facilities in the room so break out the travel kettle. You are OK to pack coffee, sugar and coffeemate in your main luggage, keep it sealed though. Use the screen on the patio to keep bugs out and some one had put a bit of masking tape on the bottom of the front door which seemed to work well. In two weeks only saw three cockroach over the whole of the complex and two of them were already dead, so not a big problem in my book. On the rooms, and if you are taking any teenage boys keep a look out on channel 57, and perhaps find a way to lock it off! You'll see! We did have a whistling boiler for the first few days, then the water stopped completely. Went to report it at reception (with a smile) and they said they would get it fixed. Later that day it was fixed, but whistled more, I think the maid had done a "quick fix" luckily bumped into the maintenance man, he soon sorted it and was fine for the rest of the stay. Staff were all friendly, got to remember they are Portuguese descendants a friend we met there said this about that nationality " they have a smile ready but don't readily smile". Remember you're on holiday and smile, everyone will smile back. Of course a tip helps, just go and see the little shanty town where the workers all live and you may feel a bit different about that. Also on that note the shop where you "buy" water, the profits from that go to run a crèche for the staffs children in the town, so not so bad really. You must be able to afford 30 euros over two weeks for water mustn't you?? Quiet pool was the best place to be and we didn't have any experience of "no loungers" at ant time of the day, see the photos, may be different when the place is full. All in all not a lot to do, but that suits us. A really enjoyable holiday and we will be going back. Very relaxing (by the quiet pool). Good luck, smile and enjoy.More

chris n,

Great value for money

Myself and my partner have just returned from Boa Vista and this hotel was an excellent choice, the rooms are basic but clean with stunning views of the beach. My partner is disabled and has to use a walking stick and I was a bit worried about the layout of the complex but he got around fine, yes there are a number of steps but there is also a lift and ramps to avoid too many steps! The staff are very good and attentive and friendly, if there was a slight issue it would be that the food is very much the same every night, even in the a la carte restaurants on site, the food is nice just more choice needed!More

Hotel needs to be updated

I found this Hotel this year, very shabby our room needed to be painted, the bathroom wall was all bubbling from damp plaster. The tiled shower was very shabby, the water would not drain very quickly but they did replace the out let filter the second week which was much needed. Cockroaches was regular vistitors. The staff I found to be quite unsociable and really not interested only when they knew it was your last few days and then hopping for a tip became interested in helping.More
