I stayed for 2 weeks and could happily have stayed longer. Very clean, very quiet & very relaxing. I did a few tours (booked with Salmine tours, a little kiosk in Santa Maria just off the main street next to CV mobile - good value, the woman is English and gave me a lot of info and tips, they were very helpful) a bit of exploring some snorkeling and had a few days just relaxing. Staff at the Sabura were great, some spoke better English than others but I had no problems understanding any of them or being understood, Flavio & Cidre both speak very good English. On the first night I explained that I am vegan, (I had anticipated eating salad, chips & fruit for 2 weeks), they were brilliant, they added vegan options to all of the menus & ran out for soy milk. The food was lovely and I couldn't believe the effort they made. All of the staff were friendly, some were shy to start with but I smiled at them and said hi and within a couple of days they were all smiling, waving and wishing me a good day every time they saw me, I even got hugged before I left. Neither of the Sabura's pools were out of order for the 2 weeks I was there. One is meant to be shallower than the other, it has the depth written on the side. The hotel, rooms and pools are as the pictures, the grass is a little longer but wasn't growing through any of the sun loungers I used. If you like hotels with 1000 rooms & lots of kids and are happy to pay hundreds of £s more (about £740 extra for 2 people for 12 days) then yeah, go to the Funana. I can't remember the last time I was as relaxed as I was at the Sabura, I met some lovely people and I will definitely go back.
