This was our second visit to the Riu Funana and we were not disappointed. The hotel has at least maintained its standards and in some cases improved things. The improvements were especially in regard to food - the soup was always piping hot and the vegetarian selection has also improved. So we ate and drank well. The beds at Riu... More

Hotel(s) absolutely fine. Spacious, clean comfortable rooms. Impressive dining selection (except for the wine which was mono choice and could have been home brewed). Lovely beaches and great walk to the surprisingly intresting fishing village of Santa Maria. Didn't do any of the excursions on offer, but apparently Shark Bay was well worth a vsit. Perhaps next time.

The hotel was really good. There was loads of things to do in the day. keep fit, boules yoga etc. there was also a good gymnansium. The weather in March was very warm but always quite windy. This is fine in the day and good for a tan, but at night because all the entertainment is exposed to the elements... More

We stayed in the hotel Riu Funana in Cape Verde. There is a complex consisting of two hotels Funana and Gardoba. No difference between them. You can eat, relax and use premises equally in two hotels. Hotel Funana has more rooms facing the ocean. Most of the hotels in island Sal are all inclusive. I would like to give advises... More

Stayed at the Funana hotel, last nov/ dec, had a great relaxing week. Don't expect too much from the islands, as they are not very touristy at the mo, but our hotel was just fine. The rooms were quite big, the beds comfortable, rooms cleaned every day. The food was A/I, and have to say a very good choice, we... More

Just came back from Kap Verde and Riu Funana. We spent there a week, which was more or less enough. The hotel itself is practically in the middle of nowhere, since in the neighbourhood there really is... nothing. For this, we cannot really blame only the hotel, but the general lackness of everything and especially services in Kap Verde. The... More

Great äll in"hotel. Would say about 4.0 stars. However very noisy, as you can "follow the neighbour". If you do not like the wind, find an other location, as the island is know for its kit surving. As there are no windows in the hallways, there is a geat draft, what can result in "sniffing and nising". Kitchen is supperb
