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 holiday, apart from cockroaches!

We had a fantastic holiday here!! The food was great the rooms where large etc all fab the entertainment (blue team) was second to none! The downside... The first few days we noticed cockroaches outside the room which is fine, however we came back after the show one night and the room was crawling in them, however we asked to move room and got put in a fantastic room overlooking the quiet pool!

Nice holiday, but not outstanding

Stayed here 25th Nov for 1 week. Had a good holiday. Hotel is reasonable with good and not so good points. On the positive, the food is fine, varied and plentiful; the room was comfortable and quiet; beach was great; whole hotel was spotlessly clean; plenty of sunbeds; any issues were efficiently dealt with. On the negative, most of the staff seemed disinterested; rooms quite basic (although adequate); speciality restaurants had limited opening. In summary, it's a perfectly good option for a relaxing holiday, but don't expect the ultimate in luxury or service. More

Great :-)

Amazing hotel so lovely- very accomadating. My gf and I had an amazing time lovely staff. We got involved in activities in the pool theatre and on the beach! The day out on the catamaran was nice - no whales but we snorkelled and enjoyed a cocktail. Great resort More

Chris R,

Better than expected!

Like many others I was concerned about going to this hotel after reading some of the recent reviews. I am so pleased to be able to report that the management seem to be doing all they can to sort out the issues that have been raised. There were only about 8 of us checking in so that was pretty quick (no welcome drink though) we were escorted to our room and our luggage followed behind very quickly. We had a suite with a sea view. Nice size although very basic. Beds were extremely comfortable but storage consisted of 1 double wardrobe, a single wardrobe with shelves in and a cupboard under the dressing table. As there were 3 of us we could have done with a chest of drawers or 2 in addition. Air con was effective but very noisy and only available in the bedroom which wasn't ideal for those sleeping in the lounge area. We never had a problem getting a sunbed, even when we went down about 9am one morning. The pools are a good size but I found them to be way too cold to swim in though unfortunately. Although there are lots of loose tiles the maintenance team were constantly working their way around fixing them. The food was plentiful, I did have a couple of strange mixes some meals but that's all part of the fun of AI in my opinion! The wine wasn't great at all, I ended up drinking half rose and half sprite which was fine. You could only get wine, beer and soft drinks in the restaurants, no spirits. A few of the staff were surly to the point of rudeness but we found that this was outweighed by the ones that were just absolutely lovely. The paths are all cobblestones (don't take stilettos girls, you'll break your necks!) Some of the pathways are very badly lit and we noted several Health and Safety issues that gave us concerns. Hopefully these will be addressed soon as part of the on-going maintenance programme. All in all we enjoyed our time there, it did what we wanted it to do and gave us a week away in the sun before the madness of Xmas arrives. Would we go back? No, having been to other hotels in Cape Verde I have to say that the Decameron is lacking that 'something' that makes it a really good hotel in my opinion.More

Great Holiday..No Stress.. Lovely Place..

We have just returned from a fantastic week here.. (27thNov).. Well what can we say Having read SOME Reviews on this Hotel it would be fair to say we were dubious.. However Having just returned from an absolutely FANTASTIC !!!! week here.. The Hotel is 1st class the food was Excellent, plenty of choice at Breakfast, Lunch, and Evening Meal for any one, whatever their eating habits, or taste.. The Hotel Itself was lovely the Pool area was spotlessly clean, and tidy, as were the Pool Bar and the Balcony Bar.. The Beach Bar was the same and in our opinion was the better choice for lunch.. The Beach was fabulous, with plenty of sun beds available despite the Hotel being busy. Our room was excellent we had a standard double room with the biggest bed either of us have seen in there, and it was lovely to fall asleep each night listening to the waves crashing on the beach.. The room was cleaned every day and the towels changed every other.. Over all we can't rate this Hotel Enough. It helped make a Relaxing week away a FANTASTIC relaxing week away !!!!! I will finish with saying that Next Year will Definitely be TWO WEEKS........... Looking already..More
