Just back from Royal Decameron Boa Vista

First day back today and just wanted to say how much we loved the royal decameron. The hotel was lovely and clean and all the staff very helpful the animation team work very hard and are very friendly we have read before that they were only helpful to the french however we did not find that. They were very entertaining and good fun. The food at the hotel was lovely and we never had a bad stomach and the waiters were attentative, the beach is fantastic lovely white sands and you can walk safely and only a couple of beach sellers who did not hassle you. The sea can be rough at times you were quite safe if you took care. The security at the hotel is good and you see guards around the hotel. We did not go on any excursions as I had a broken ankle which happened in England. So cannot comment on trips.

There are only a few things we would suggest:-

Take plenty of deet 50/100 % as the mosqitos do appear in the evening and first thing in the morning and there are lots due to ther humid weather we took 4 bottles and came back with one.

Take insect cream for bites

Do suggest you take spray for the room as sometimes had insects in there

If you smoke there is an ashtray in your room, however take with you (sounds silly) to the bar as they do not have enough to go around.

Do suggest as seen on trip advisor to take bulldog clips for your towels to clip onto the chairs on beach as can be windy.

Tips for staff these are greatly recieved and appreciated.

Take plenty of suntan cream we saw lots of people who sat in the sun all the time and ended up burning or peeling.

The holiday was lovely if we think of anything else or you have any questions please ask

Hi. Does the hotel have any self service stations for coffee, beer and wine? Are there now enough sunbeds and parasols to go round? Thanks.

Also when the brochure says beer and wine served with meals does this mean you can only have beer and wine at mealtimes?

Hello only in the restaurant is there self service of beer water fizzy drinks then you can get cofee beer wine soft and fizzy drinks at the bar near the restaurant. I would with the sunbeds put your towels on sunbeds as can get full. Not sure about 24 hour all inclusive as stayed up until 11.oopm and beer or wine is served with meal the waiters will ask you what you would like.

Hope this helps
