We stayed at the Riu Funana last October for a sun-filled week and we would recommend it to couples and families alike. The short transfer from the airport is ideal, and being met with a drink on arrival is lush! Rooms are spacious with a balcony and lots of room to get ready for your day or night. We stayed... More
