Good location close to airport with terrific beach and good food.
The hotel is fairly small with 300 or so rooms and we never felt overcrowded within hotel, around the pools or in the restaurant. The food was both plentiful and of good standard served with a smile.We are not heavy drinker but always a drink was available and with a wide choice but the cocktails were a bit unimaginative. The wine however was good, white (well chilled), red as we liked, and so were very satisfied. The alcoholic and soft drinks as expected unlimited. The Verde Islands are small, poor, Independent and heavily rely on tourists.There is very little to do, not a lot to see and with little scenery to admire whilst the beaches are long wide and beautiful but come with a price. When we visited in the 1st week February 2017 the wind never ceased and over the 7 days the sea was very strong wild ,rough and red flagged. Great for wind surfing which i do not do..More
Great value for money holiday
I had considered Cape Verde approximately 3 years ago but was put off by many indifferent reviews, however, the travel agent persuaded me to look at it again and we booked an 11 night deal from Manchester. The hotel Touareg is in the middle of nowhere but as we were there for total relaxation it wasn't a problem. The staff were excellent from cleaners to table staff to reception, all brilliant and friendly. The food in the main restaurant was better than most all inclusives we have been too but you do always hear the odd moaner ("not enough gluten free options" I heard from 1 holidaymaker). There were plenty of sunbeds in all locations, pools that we didn't use and a lovely spa which we investigated but didn't use. The beach is beautiful with powder soft sand however, the sea is only for the strong swimmers because the currents and waves are very strong. We would take a walk along the beach every day and usually walked about 1-1.5 miles away from the hotel along the shoreline. A feature of our stay that wasn't comfortable was the strong wind coming from inland. We were told it is always breezy but many who were regular visitors said the wind was exceptionally strong. Temperatures were 26-28' all the time we were there. Negatives: the room towels were small, thin and like sandpaper they should all be replaced. Feature restaurants, we went to the Asian which was quite nice but still buffet and the Italian was the worst "feature" Italian I have visited in an all-inclusive hotel. The food was lukewarm and not as good as in the main restaurant where they served various pastas and again it was buffet. Entertainment was ok with the best being the young foursome who did Abba and Motown. I spoke to people who stayed in the adults only section and said it wasn't worth the extra money as there were hardly any kids about.More
Lovely peaceful place with great meals
We spent in this hotel one week with all inclusive programme. Royal Decameron offers basic accommodation with spacious rooms. Bathroom is not as nice but you still have to think about the fact that youÂ´re in Africa. Everything is well kept and clean. The hygiene standards in main restaurant are very high and food was tasty and not repetitive. Everyday there was something slightly different with some theme nights. You can also eat in a la carte restaurant twice a week. I really recommend Morna restaurant (with local food). It was really lovely food and nice experience. Drinks are not as good as food. Water tasted really funny and non-alcoholic coctails were the worst ever. The beach is beautiful and we walked down the beach everyday. The one thing is that Atlantic ocean is very cold and due to wind thereÂ´s quite often red flag so you even canÂ´t swim even if you wanted to. But in general this was really nice holiday and we couldnÂ´t complain.More
Sea Front Apartment, Swimming, Lovely People Beach & Cats
Visited 20/1 - 3/2. On arrival bit confused as 'New Horizon' hotel but Royal D it was! 644 turned out to be beach front apartment (glad we didn't opt for the pool view!) Fixtures & fittings a bit tired however a clean bed, fresh towels (leave in bath when want new) hot & cold running water, hob*, sink & fridge. Pool/Beach Towels provided. Room only supplied with toilet rolls, hair/body gel sachets & soap toiletries but does have hairdryer* Safe 2E a night however needed to haggle as informed weekly hire, but managed to hire for single day! Wide selection of tasty foods at meal times 7am-10pm. Chicken & Tuna nicely cooked & moist. Cheese & Meats, Pastries & Desserts. Lunch boxes are NOT provided, but create your own 'doggy bag' to take on trips. Pool LOVELY to have a swim ðð¼ââï¸in January ðð¼ââï¸water is SEA water @ 26C (@home local pool 22!) I swam first or last thing or cooled down in the shower before dip! There is a Quiet Pool as well! - pool is cleaned every morning and monitored twice in a day. Beautiful View Beach, soft, sandy, wind can be exfoliating! Waves - BE VERY CAREFUL. Snorkel on Sal Rei beach. We hired a Kayak from BV Wind Club and visited the island 0.8 miles away. Walk to Sal Rei approx 4 miles (2hrs walk along beach) 1.5L of water provided on arrival. (5L bottles cheaper in Town - 10E for cab back) Did couple of trips with Tui - south, north & catamaran - little gifts received - Very Nice Touch! We had 2 resident cats to our apartment, if you see them around please say hi to 'posh cat' & 'little cat'! Have a lovely time on Boa Vista x x x #Will review tours and places visited on those. *items not used by us!More
completely chilled holiday
firstly my review is based on the time we visited, and i can fully understand peoples problems in full season. pool area, always sun beds available, pool bar good and always excellent service and only downside is the pool was cold and salt water. rooms are large and spacious with huge king size beds. rooms serviced every day and towels and bed linen changed on a regular basis . dining area is small considering number of rooms and although we had no problem finding a table, in full season you will have a job getting a table.. the food was good and varied but a lot of recycling was done from lunch to dinner, also the food was not always hot.. the staff in the dining room worked really hard and always had a smile on their faces. the reception staff are ok but did not have to call on them for any reason, so could not comment on them or the service they provided. the main bar is very well presented and the drinks were good, beer tasted good most times but you will need to drink a lot to feel any alcoholic effects. the bar staff are all amazing and work very hard to serve you and we could not see them giving any preferential treatment to other guests. entertainment was not to our liking and we tended to find our own entertainment in the bar.. the animation teams worked hard but we did not join in most of the things .. now, the main attraction of this hotel , for us, is the absolutely chilled out sense of being on holiday with nothing to do but relax and enjoy the sun and the quiet ambiance at night.. also as i have stated, we were here at the end of january but i don't believe that this review would apply at other times of the year, certainly not in full season so we loved this holiday we will go here again but only in january whilst we were here the are changing the name to royal horizonsMore
