We'd never been here before and booked to get some winter sun. Highly rated, we expected a high standard. Well, I have to say that although the hotel is splendid, for those thinking of a quiet holiday, it's huge! That doesn't take away anything from it; we loved our time there and found the staff amazing and so very dedicated....

Amazing hotel!! It's like a mini city with everything you need inside its huge vicinity. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful at all times, and there are a lot of them!! The hotel has everything from quiet bars, to busier bars to karaoke bars to night club! The entertainment team put on a great show almost every night...

This is my family's second visit to this hotel. There are some changes as expected after 5 years, but it is still a good destination for some winter sun. The bedrooms have been refurbished with memory foam mattresses and new flat screen TVs and are comfortable and are cleaned everyday. At our last visit, we were in rooms furthest away...

This was my first time in an all-inclusive resort, and it was in most ways as I expected. The only thing that was below expectation was the red wine, which was very close to colored water. On the other hand, the resort itself was better than I expected. The room was clean and large enough, the balcony was large and...

I think some people were at a different hotel to us reading some of these reviews so please don't believe everything you read on a poor review. This is our second time to this beautiful island (stayed at the Tourage last time), the Karamboa was amazing for us for our whole 10 nights. If you won't to just chill and...

This was perhaps the worst hotel experience I can remember in a so called 5 star hotel which is borderline 3 star at best. It is totally mass market and has no finesse what so ever. The rooms are basic and quite tatty. There appears to be quite excessive damp on the walls both in the rooms and the corridors....

I am at the hotel now and trying to do something on line takes hours rather than minutes - no exaggeration. You can only get on line in the lobby which I accept but trying to load a page up or do anything on line is incredibly painful. I have travelled all over the world and been to some far...

Rooms are very basic. Bathroom is sort of in the room which is odd. Nothing fancy to them atall but the hotel and the scenery and the pool etc make the holiday great. Had a lovely sunset meal on the beach. The lemon cocktails are TO DIE FOR. Drink and food ON TAP. Great beach bar staff. Lovely and clean...
