I have just returned February 2017 from Cape Verde, having never been I had heard so many really good reviews, and was quite surprised and a little dissapointed. The Riu Touareg Hotel is enormous, it has some really good restaurants, the food is excellent with more choice that you know what to do. Staff are friendly, beach is superb. Weather...

We had a short 10 days break in late February to get away from the British Winter. Boa Vista is not a location that would elicit an “Oh I know we were there”. Nevertheless, you can’t fault the place. Its constant temperature of high 20s all the year round, the excellent sandy beaches and the hotel itself offers all that...

I was truly impressed by my overall experience! This is the type of hotel you can come to with anyone, whether it be a friend, partner, group of girls/boys, mix, family, etc, they really do accommodate for all. I went with my partner in October 2016 when the weather was fantastic. The hotel is massive and is in the shape...

I would rate the hotel as 4* not 5* but was good value for what we paid. The room (family suite) was clean and functional but outside space was more or less unusable as it was tucked in a small corner and covered in insects (which were cleared twice but returned). The main restaurant was a bit of a bun...

If you like cats, the smell of fat & sewage plus sharing your hotel with 2000 other people then this is the hotel for you. As other revues have stated the mainly young staff were amazing, in all my years of traveling I have never had better bar service. However because of the shear scale of the place there is...

This is by far the most wonderful holiday I have ever been on. I was slightly nervous about coming as my previous experiences stopping in an all inclusive resort have been terrible. This however, is faultless. I have literally not got a single negative word to say about anything. The food was amazing. It was fresh, tasty, plenty of choice,...

An island that replicated the moon - nothing there, completely barren land with only goats grazing on the bare rugged land. Our Hotel The Riu Touareg was like an oasis - one lonely complex in the middle of no where. We were given our room number and a map on how to reach it - DIY. We eventually found our...

After a much awaited holiday for myself and my husband without children (yay!) The hotel on arrival was the wow factor where you are greeted with your personal bell boy to carry your cases to your room (nice touch!) after a long flight. Highly recommend the specialised restaurants that are all themed and very different and the food is exceptionally!...
