Positive Reviews

Dine like a King

Guests love the food at the Riu Touareg. There is something for everyone at the buffet restaurant, and food is warm and good quality too. The gourmet restaurants have to be booked a few days in advance however most guests feel that they're worth the wait, with "Kabuki", the Asian restaurant being most people's firm favourite.

Beautiful beach takes your breath away

The beautiful Boa Vista beach is a hit with guests. Miles upon miles of luscious golden sand, guests have remarked that it makes for a beautiful walk along the coast.

Real relaxation

Many guests feel that this hotel offers a great environment for real relaxation. Although daytime and evening entertainment is provided, it's the perfect place to sit back with a cocktail in one hand, a book in the other and forget about the hassle of day to day life at home.

Negative Reviews

Rooms lack privacy

Some guests have commented that there is no real partition between the bathroom and the bedrooms at this hotel, which may cause a problem for the more private of people.

In the middle of nowhere

A handful of guests have been surprised at just how remote this hotel is. Accessible only by dirt tracks that just about pass as roads, it's definitely not the right choice for you if you would like to get out on foot and explore.

No swimming in the sea

Boa Vista is quite a windy Island, and this coupled with the underwater rock formations make the sea quite choppy. The undercurrent means that there is rarely a green flag in sight therefore guests who like to take a dip in the sea may need to consider if this is the right hotel for them.
