The aftercare is shocking
Reviewed 16 hours ago

Hi, don't get me wrong we thoroughly enjoyed 2 weeks at the Karamboa. So much so we wanted to go again this year. Whilst there, although originally in a suite, we changed to a family room which was exactly what we wanted when we come back. Staff at Tui who we booked through said it shouldn't be a problem. This is where the problem started. On trying to rebook they don't have a family room option!. I tried in shop and Internet site saying they can't do it. I emailed Riu directly who cant be contacted as a normal email system only as a complaint!! I rang them but clearly english is not understood. Sheer frustration and therefore cannot go and lost booking. Shame on you.

Update to previous review

I previously gave this a terrible review having stayed there for three weeks now I have changed it to a 3+ due to the staff and the Augustino one of the directors of the hotel who went beyond his duty to improve out stay and make it great but the reason for a 3+ is that the place is so so old and everything broken and in much need of repair and updating although the staff try there best and having to make do its rui that need to put money into this and get it upgraded then it would be fantastic thanks to all the staff and augustino

Relax holiday

Really got what it said on the tin very relaxing not a lot outside complex to do but more than enough to occupy yourself in hotel. People were really friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent and catered for everyone. Rooms and over all the hotel cleanliness was second to none. The only small issue to me was you were not allowed in the sister hotel next door except for a Thursday pm look around and that was it. Nothing like they do in Mexico where you are welcome in all sister hotels under Rui flag other than that lovely.
