Just back (August 2015) from a week stay at Riu-Funana in Santa Maria, Sal – 2 adults and 3 kids aged between 11 and 17. Went with Thomson. Have to say that the holiday was better than expected, and overall it was brilliant. Flight: Out of Birmingham and quite long at 6 hours, and with no entertainment on the Thompson... More

We stayed at the Riu Funana on Sal Island (Cape Verde) for two weeks at the start of August 2015, having booked with Thomson in the UK. Overall it was a fantastic holiday with areas for improvement, and hopefully we can give all the details that would have helped us here. Flights were direct and approximately 5h30 to 6h, as... More

We stayed at the Riu Funana in March. The weather was great as was the hotel. We liked the fact that you could safely walk into the town which took about 20 minutes. There were quite a few shops. Be warned you may be approached by a local saying he had seen you at the hotel as he worked behind... More

In July of this year we stayed at the Funana for the 7th time and are going back in December for our 8th visit. The six hour flight is quite long on a cramped uncomfortable plane but it is definitely worth it once you arrive and experience a taste of what can be described as the African Caribbean. We did...

My Wife and I recently travelled to Cape Verde for our honeymoon (we got married on the 8th of August) and we can only say that we were immensely disappointed by the whole experience. Having read through possible destinations, we choose Cape Verde on the recommendation of Thomson after looking through their website at the accommodation available and the descriptions... More

Just returned from a week at the Funana. It's ok but not great. The hotel itself is a little tired looking and needs money spending updating it. The rooms I thought were very out dated. The beds were comfortable tho and the shower was great. Room smelt when the AC was on but was hot so had no choice but... More

Friendly attentive staff, food and drinks all day long, cocktails ❤️ The room was large, clean and comfortable and in the section we had requested. The beach was clean with plenty of beds and drinks available all day. The entertainment was great and the staff were lovely! Relaxing holiday, just what we needed!

The hotel accommodation did not live up to expectations. Hotel staff and reception on arriving at hotel were friendly and helpful, however room allocated was rather disappointing,with cracked bathroom tiles and toilet that would not stop flushing ( although it was eventually repaired). Beach and pools were good, however the general landscape of the hotel grounds was pretty barren. Weather... More
