How to Get There
Riu Touareg very nice hotel, excursions good, very remote, lovely beach but could not get in the sea due to waves etc. Very kind helpful staff throughout. Would happily go again, but would be better with company.
Travelled here June 2017. Had an amazing two weeks. Have to say the beach and sea did it for me,. You can walk for miles on your own uninterrupted and yes, I felt completely safe. The sand is just so beautifully clean. It was windy and yes it was mental to go in the sea with the waves but you go in a fair way for the experience.
The hotel was huge! We did have to move rooms because of a flood due to a sewer problem but it was sorted promptly and was found a fab room. The manager was fantastic. We had our clothes dry cleaned that got dirty. We stayed in the adults only section. It was ok. But I did prefer the newer end of the hotel if I’m honest near the spa. But enjoyed the champagne events of course. We were in block 5 and moved to block 2.
The food was great no probs at all and the service was spot on! Entertainment was good but nothing exciting if I’m honest. The reception area was full of people on the WiFi..no where to sit and relax in there and was bitten badly by mosquito and sand flies. Please take everything with you first aid wise as it is expensive...very expensive to buy. The reps do a good thing where if you have sun cream etc left you can put in a tray for others...great if you run short for a few days instead of the expense. Didn’t do any trips so can’t comment.
Airport was different...let’s say that...but an experience! Wouldn’t go back but it was more the weather that was unpredictable for me and some areas needed attention. If you want to go...go now and experience the beauty of the sea and beach because Cape Verde will become very commercialised and over built in years to come.
The staff work extremely hard though and I have huge respect for them. They always have time for you.
The hotel is the biggest riu and it is an amazing building to view from the beach. Please visit the guys on the beach. Sooo friendly and one has a little monkey too. Take them a cake or a sandwich...they appreciate it along with your purchase of gifts. Enjoy it while the peace lasts.
Did the people complaining about this hotel do any research before they visited? If they had, they would have known that the hotel is in a remote location and that swimming in the sea isn't recommended! You have to remember where you are in the world and accept that the hotel isn't going to be the same standard as other hotels in the Caribbean but it's lovely, clean, the food is hot, plentiful and varied and the staff are really friendly.
The beach is stunning, no seaweed or debris and you don't get pestered by vendors like you do in other resorts. There are things to do outside of the hotel but if you like to relax by the poolside, there are plenty of sun loungers.
If you're going to be precious about a lack of toiletries or dressing gown/slippers in your room, then go to the Caribbean where you'll pay a hell of a lot more money!
Great hotel with fantastic staff, but because of the location and the lack of things to do other than sunbathe and swim we found that a week was just enough. There is daytime activities and sports if you want to get involved. The hotel is right on the beautiful beach but red flags fly permanently because the waves are so wild. The themed restaurants are a nice change to the main buffet, but book as soon as you get there. They're also a bit confusing because they display menus that give the impression that you'll be served but they're buffet too. The hotel entertainment crew do a great job but once their show is finished it would be nice to have some music playing as the square is a lovely setting.
I am currently here at the riu touareg and after worrying about some of the negative reviews before our arrival i am pleasantly surprised.
The hotel is spotless, staff so friendly, food good always something to satisfy even the most fussy of eaters, drinks are good and if you don't think there strong enough simply ask for more alcohol to be put in it's not a problem.
A few cats around but not pestered by them, there are plenty of sun beds but as in most hotels around the world people do put the towels down early.
I do agree with most reviews that this is not a standard 5 star hotel, missing those little touches like toiletries and stocked mini bar in room. However do not let this put you off, the hotel itself has fantastic pool areas, dinning facilities and spacious rooms and staff are continuously working cleaning ,gardening ect to up keep the grounds.
Red flag never down on the beach but you can still go in up to your waist and enjoy the waves, wouldn't recommend going in that deep with little ones though but great fun with older kids. Beach is one of the best I've been too, better than Caribbean in my opinion!
Only been here 2 day's so will leave more detailed review towards the end but so far so good,
