A holiday at Hotel RIU Touareg feels like staying in the Efteling’s Fata Morgana. The hotel consists of several castles and towers that will give your holiday a magical feeling. It seems like you are staying in a beautiful sand castle. The hotel is located on the tropical Cape Verdean island of Boa Vista and is located directly on the beach. Have fun in one of the outdoor pools or relax in the wellness center. A holiday to RIU Touareg in Cape Verde is a fun holiday for the whole family with teenagers in a beautiful resort on Boa Vista.
In March 2023 we visited this fantastic hotel. Read our experience below!

RIU Touareg is fun for teenagers!
Teenagers will have a great time during this holiday. For the older teenagers there is a disco where you can go all night 6 times a week. There is also an animation team that organizes the best games and activities for everyone, so that the whole family can enjoy the ideal holiday. These activities really go on all day long and often even several at the same time. Think of fun sports tournaments and spectacular shows. I myself participated in a water polo competition, but you could also play beach volleyball, for example.
The hotel has well thought of the teenagers, as the hotel has free internet in all public areas and in all rooms. This way you can keep up with your social media and watch fun videos while tanning at the pool or beach! 😉 The WiFi was actually of good quality.
Super cool is that every Friday a big party is organized at RIU Karamboa. From Touareg you have the option to travel with a free shuttle bus. When we were there they alternated the White Party & Neon Party themes. Very nice to have experienced this. Fun for the parents anyway and perhaps also for the older teenagers among us. I understand that RIU Touareg will soon be organizing large parties independently, but when this is exactly is not yet known.
What to do during your holiday to RIU Touareg?
After all those tiring activities, you’ve probably worked up an appetite. Fortunately, the hotel has 5 different restaurants for you to choose from to satisfy that hunger, including 4 buffet restaurants and an à la carte restaurant. Please note that the à la carte restaurant is located in the Adults-only area of the hotel. Unfortunately, you do not have access to this for a stay with teenagers. You can easily book one of the restaurants in advance and the large buffet restaurant is accessible without reservation.
The hotel is all-inclusive and ensures that you never miss a thing during your luxury holiday on Boa Vista with teenagers, the staff is also available day and night.
You can also enjoy your drink of choice in one of the 6 bars throughout the day. We mainly enjoyed the delicious coffees at the lobby bar, but the swim-up bar in the pool is really cool!
Keep moving during your holiday
Keep moving during a game of tennis, volleyball or in the fitness room. Or join in one of the activities I described above.
Swimming fun at RIU Touareg
Swimming is the best at RIU Touareg, because the hotel has 5 different outdoor pools and 2 children’s pools. The central pool with swim up bar is fantastic, but the view over the beach from the infinity pool is really wonderful.
Although the resort was almost full during our stay, it was no problem to find a sunbed every time and there were a lot of umbrellas. Very nice, since the sun shines all day long.
Not in the mood for the pool? Then you walk straight onto the beach towards the sea. The sea is relatively rough on this side of the island, but you can take a refreshing dip here or relax on one of the sunbeds.
To just do nothing and enjoy the sun to the fullest, this is really the ideal destination!
The rooms of RIU Touareg on Boa Vista
We stayed in a RIU Touareg family room. This room is very useful for families with teenagers, because you have the option to stay here with four people, which saves a lot of money. The sofa can easily be folded out as a bed. I also slept on this myself and that was really more than fine.
Furthermore, the bathroom was spacious, there was a nice balcony in the room and more than enough space to store things. The style of the room is more traditionally African.
As alternative accommodation options you could go for double rooms, which you could upgrade. For example, with a view of the sea, as a suite or in the Adults-only section.
The rooms in the Adults-only section have a mini bar and with this wristband you benefit from A-quality drinks. If the teenagers are a bit older and can stay independently, this could be an option for the parents.

What to do around Boa Vista at RIU Touareg?
The famous city of Sal Rei is about half an hour’s drive from the resort. Sal Rei is located on the northern coast of the island and has many fun activities. After a short drive you already have a lot of options and you can spend full days here. Join a 4×4 island tour, a barbecue evening or book a beach day with fun water activities.
You have many excursions all over the island which is worth a look. Go stargazing in the desert, discover the different beaches on the island, see the shipwreck or go on a whale safari. It is also very cool for the older teenagers to book a quad!
The ideal holiday to enjoy the sun and especially not to do too much!
All in all, we enjoyed a fantastic time at this fine resort on Boa Vista for families with teenagers. Via the link below you can arrange your all-inclusive holiday to RIU Touareg resort with teenagers on Boa Vista!
