We spent 2 weeks here in June 2015 - 1 week would have been plenty. The room was okay, clean and the shower was hot. However, my partner slipped in the shower and could have been hurt as the floor was so slippy and no mat so had to place bath mat in shower. You had to request tea and... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 weeks in early July, the whole holiday was amazing from start to finish and couldn't fault the hotel at all!, usually not ones for big hotels, the place was incredibly quiet given the size, with staff that were extremely welcoming and attentive especially the bar and restaurant staff! The food was faultless... More

Just back from a lovely sun soaked holiday.. read lots of reviews but never in doubt... So lets start with the Negative,, We all know what's coming, Thomson flight - the plane, it’s a 3x3 configuration , a bit tight on the old knees, not a lot of leg room, no inflight entertainment, so make sure you down load a...

The Funana is set in a private location right on the bet beach in Sal with its sister hotel the Garopa. You can walk to Santa Maria along the beach in about 30-40 minutes. The Garopa has a far more impressive lobby area but the facilities provided are identical. Rooms are what you expect from the Riu chain but I... More

I emailed the hotel in advance to see if we could have an upper floor room in block 5 with a sea view. Hotel advised that they do not really have any rooms with... More
