With six pools and just as many restaurants, plus 24-hour All Inclusive, this big, beachfront hotel will leave you wanting for nothing.

The Hotel Riu Touareg is ideal for a relaxing escape. It nudges up to one of Boa Vista’s best beaches – a long stretch of powder-white sand. Other highlights include the spa, the daytime activities and the evening shows. This huge hotel is a great choice for both adults and families. Grown-ups can book a room in the adults-only area, which gives you access to an exclusive pool and à la carte restaurant. Families, meanwhile, have a kids’ club and mini-discos to make the most of.

There are a handful of pools, and two extras for kids. The main pool, with its islands and walkways, weaves its way around the central sun terrace. There's also a saltwater pool, which takes the count up to an impressive six swimming spots.

Food & Drink
There are six restaurants here, including an à la carte that's exclusively for guests staying in the adults-only section. The poolside restaurant is where long, laidback Continental breakfasts are the order of the day. By evening, it transforms into a grill restaurant.
If you want, you can dine on a different cuisine every night, thanks to an Asian buffet, an Italian and a restaurant specialising in local dishes. The buffet restaurant also covers all three meals.

Shows on the main stage have a family-friendly theme, with the kids themselves starring in weekly performances laid on by RiuLand kids’ club.
The RiuLand kids’ club serves up a daily activity schedule of lively activities and pirate-themed days.

Sports & Activities
Tennis and beach volleyball are on the daytime to-do list. There's also a multi-sports court and exercise classes to sign up for.

Health & Beauty
Treatments like back and shoulder massages are served up in the spa*. A Jacuzzi® sits under its roof, too.
An in-house fitness programme called RiuFit offers aquagym and workout classes. Most go al fresco on the pool terraces.

Facility Summary

The main attraction here are the pools, featuring under-water sunbeds, little ones have mini-waterslides and there’s a whirlpool bath and swim-up bar, too. You’ve also got a spa, kids’ club and a nightclub. And the restaurants are worth a mention, too, with buffet, local and Asian options, plus a gourmet à la carte exclusive to guests staying in the adults-only section.

Rooms have air-con, a TV and a balcony or terrace. For a bit extra, upgrade to a junior suite, or try a family suite with a separate lounge. If there are only adults in your party, opt for an adults' area room with a minibar and an adults-only pool area. Or, for a bit of luxury, pick an adults' area junior suite with a whirlpool tub.

    My 2 penny's worth. Beautiful hotel. Food, accommodation and rooms/grounds are excellent. And, a massive golden beach. However, the island is a rubble strewn hole. And as for the sea, I would class as very dangerous! I wouldn't go back. Hit the canaries for less and a shorter flight too.
    It's a few degrees warmer in Cape Verde.

    Sea is rough, any medical emergencies turn into a nightmare as there is no hospital on this island and a basic one on a neighbouring island, it's medivac only and this takes days. Woman had a head injury while we was there and lay in her hotel room bed for 2 days not even knowing her own name and with no medical help...... nightmare.

    Please check reviews on tripadvisor: the number of terrible reviews is worrying and so many of those mention tummy bugs!
    I've been there too and also got a tummy bug... Both ends, was nasty!

    Been Verde several times. Most the comments here are fair.

    The weather in Dec is pretty good. Mid late twenties and very warm feeling. The breeze coming from the sea is often very welcome. I've been there in Dec and its topped 30.

    Beach is beautiful but sea is rough. But if you like body boarding etc it's great fun. A gentle paddle is unlikely.

    As for the price, these have absolutely rocketed like most things I guess. Last year we paid 875 ish for the Palace which is next door and a definite step up level wise in terms of.. Well everything really. So at 1200 I honestly don't think it's worth it.

    Hotel is lovely, food alright but can get bit boring, and for lower price I'd pay gladly.

    Never had any issues with bugs or food poisoning or "stomach" issues in any of our visits but each will experience different I guess.

    Hope that helps.

    What is the saving compared booking direct with TUI?

    It's a lovely hotel and good food. Not much to see or do at that island. Its warmer than Canary Islands but very windy,so feels colder.

    Why not go to the closest resort with good weather if all you're going to do is stay inside?

    Stayed in Cape Verde once on a flight delay due to a fault. I'd agree the sentiments, outside the hotels the place isn't that nice basically a barren rock. Hotels are nice though. It was massive luxury compared to the Falkland Islands where we'd come from.

    Destination is good for winter sun but as someone else posted, it can be very windy and sea is very choppy so unsafe to enter even for adults. Not really much in terms of culture or other things to do.

    Just a remember if taking a late deal, you need to register on the tui site no later than 7 days before you go, for tui to pay the airport tax of 31€ each.
    Other wise you have to pay it at the airport.

    We went in march and loved it, we paid 100 less but definitely worth 600 for a relaxing week in the sun.

    Great price, hotel itself is good lovely staff, updating the rooms when we were there and some good meal choices with the on site speciality restaurants.

    The hotel is isolated down on the south of the island, whilst this does mean no shops, etc to explore it also means complete peace and tranquility.

    Not a great deal on the island, id like it slightly to a moon surface in terms of stones and boulders for miles and miles with minimal vegetation or human presence. However this makes some of the excursions (quad biking) great for exploring and riding without worry.

    As others have mentioned I too succumbed to a stomach bug whilst there, thankfully not completely crippling and was still able to spend time by the pool on a lounger for periods of time but was the first time I’ve ever been struck down whilst abroad. Luck of the drawer maybe? Didn’t see any practises which seemed unsafe albeit you can’t see into all the kitchen and storage so who knows.
