This is a great Hotel, the only hotel on 22 miles of beautiful beach. The airport is small, don't forget to get your visa a week before you arrive, it can be done on your arrival but the queue is slow, plus it was free to do it from home but costs 25 euros in Cape Verde. The coach transfer...

My biggest tip - Take as many pencils,pens,notepads,socks, underwear etc that you can fit in your suitcase!! The people of Boa Vista are so poor and TUI donate so much their welfare, they need all the help they can get! Flight/Aircraft - Fine even without in flight entertainment, really if you can't amuse yourself for 6 hours then you've got...

Short and sweet comments , no kettles in room or dressing gowns that is really expected of a 5* resort. Food is edible , however is repetitive. Kettles can be hired from the sweet shop at 2€ per day and a 50€ deposit. The weather is superb and that's mainly why we're here , but I have to say I'd...

We believe you get what you pay for, and with this hotel we were very impressed. It was much bigger than we usually go for, but as it was very spread our, it never felt crowded. The food was good, even for me, as I am a very fussy eater wiry several food intorenances. The spirits, whilst not not with...

We returned back from Riu Touareg Boa - Vista on Saturday very disappointed; after looking forward to our two week break in this fabulous hotel, we felt very let down with the lack of variety from lunch to evening buffet and the fact that food was reheated, the veal was not chewable,(this was availiable every night ), the turkey looked...

We went with friends for two weeks and booked this holiday 3weeks prior to going so got a good deal. That said on the whole it was good. After 2 weeks I did get fed up of the food. Many times it wasn't hot enough. The speciality restaurants were probably better but as already said the starters and desserts were...
