We just spent 2 fabulous weeks in the Funana in June. This was our first time in Cape Verde, and the hotel did not dissapoint, Ok, at this stage it is only fair to point out that like many other guests, I would have to say the Hotel was in need of a makeover, as it was very tired looking,... More

Great on all levels. Hotel was fantastic with a variety of foods daily. Tried all three themed restaurant and they were really good. We got upgraded to a Junior Suite and the hotel staff could not do enough for us. They checked in on us nearly every day. Although windy it was hot and I have never experienced sand like... More

I have recently returned from a 14 night stay and could not find fault with anything at this lovely hotel. The food was excellent with vast choices at every meal. The all inclusive bar menu was also extensive and included some lovely cocktails. The room was very spacious and kept very clean by the maid service. All staff were friendly,... More

We have a very relaxing break at the Funana and could not fault it at all. The beach was stunning with no problem getting a sunbed and sitting on the steps of the beach bar sipping a beer was bliss. Main pool was peaceful too and again, no problem with beds, Food I thought was of good standard and plenty... More

I have just returned after 7 nights at the Riu Funana and it was amazing! Although some say that it looked old fashioned, I felt it only needs a touch up as it had a certain charm about which I hope will not be lost in its major refurbishment starting at the end June. The staff were great and very... More
