With its great dining scene and beachfront setting, it’s no wonder this hotel is a favourite with TripAdvisor reviewers.
This hotel looks like a sandcastle – appropriate really, given it fringes one of Boa Vista’s best beaches.
Glossy lawns and courtyards surround the Hotel Riu Touareg, creating a real sense of privacy. There’s also an adults-exclusive area with a swimming pool and an à la carte restaurant, which you'll get access to if you stay in an adults-only room.

The poolside restaurant is where long, laidback Continental breakfasts are the order of the day. By evening, it transforms into a grill restaurant. The buffet restaurant also covers all three meals. 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. And guests in the adults-only section get an à la carte to themselves.
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. Elsewhere, you can log-on to free Wi-Fi in public areas.
Health & Beauty*
