I stayed here in June 2013 (Sorry it’s been so long to put up a review!) The weather was always hot, but not too hot. There’s a lovely sea breeze that makes the weather seen not as hot as it is! Beware, if you don’t cover yourself from head to toe in sun block, you will burn to a crisp.... More

Pros: super efficient and friendly staff, very clean overall, wide choice of tasty food, nice infrastructure. Very good shower ! Cons: a bit of a food factory wich probably attracts food frenzied sharks who hit the buffets in an unappropriate manner. This annoying behaviour downgraded the hotel a bit which is a pity becouse staff tried very hard to accomodate... More

We emailed a week ahead asking if an upper room facing the sea in block 5 would be possible and got a reply back saying it couldn't be promised but when we checked in we had been given room 5141 - upstairs, block 5, facing the...

This is the 4th time we have been to Cape Verde (once to Boa Vista & 3 times to Sal) in the winter. We now go to Sal as there is a bit more to do/see there whereas Boa Vista is more like a giant sand dune with not much to see/do. Its difficult to beat the Riu Funana/Garopa for... More

Great value for money, not a lot to do but if you want to chill out, drink and eat nice food this is for you. It was quite windy but that was ok. Rooms were ok, typically African but had AC so was fine. Had a great week, would go back. Nice tan too!

just returned from a weeks holiday at the Funana. This hotel is combined side by side with the Garopa giving a large complex with four pools numerous eateries and bars. The general cleanliness of the hotel and complex is superb. The staff should be rewarded for their helpfulness, politeness and willingness to make your stay a good one. beach area... More
