We stayed at the Riu Funana in February 2013, with Thompson holidays. Like many other reviews, the Aeroplanes that use are older style, and the flight is quite cramped. The hotel itself is a nice building, clean and tidy, and well kept by the staff. The rooms are ok, not a four star standard. The food is ok, but the restaurant service is below average, the bar service and range of beverages were also disappointing. In fact the service from the staff is pretty poor overall, except for the fact that they keep things clean and tidy. We took to eating in the sister hotel, the Garopa, as it seemed to be more warm and friendly than the Funana. Overall the hotel is not a 4 star 'Premier' hotel as Thompson advertise it, more like a weak 3 star. Would not recommend unless you get a great price and need some sunshine!
