At the sandcastle-shaped ClubHotel Riu Funana, an activity-filled beach is paired with a great pool scene.
This beach hotel clocks up a pair of pools and five restaurants, as well as a long list of activities that crosses off everything from scuba diving to volleyball.
The bigger the better is the theme here, so stylish suite rooms have plush lounge areas. You’ll also have access to the neighbouring hotel’s restaurants and spa, giving you an extra three eateries.

2nd time been - Still like paradise!
I have been to Cape Verde before 2 years ago, and went back again and it was still perfect! My favourite place to go, if you have any questions just ask as I know it like the back of my hand. Entertainment was slightly poor than last time as they had a British copy singer, but also had traditional African nights which were brilliant! Rooms are beautiful, excellent cleaning standards and facilities and day time activities were also brilliant! The food was of an excellent choice but came repetitive after 2 weeks! If your looking at trips to go on, I wouldn't go with Thomsons as they charge 2's the price...as you go to the beach from the hotel where you see the coloured polls you will be sold with island trips with locals at half the price but they are magnificent! So friendly and excellent English! If you also walk to Santa Maria pier you wil come across a shack which offers trips which are so much cheaper!!! It's also run by English couple as well! Overall, the best place you could imagine, however not much to do more of relaxing holiday! The beach is faultless and goes for miles without seeing a single person!More
There's no fun in funana!! Just food poisoning!!
Three solid days of the worst case of food poisoning I have ever experienced. Both myself and my partner were bedridden and felt like we were on deaths door!! As soon as we felt confident we could leave the room without having an 'accident' we went to speak with out holiday rep (Thomson)we waited 11/2 hours. She explained we would have to pay to visit a hospital to prove it was food poisoning or there was nothing they could do!! On our last night we braved some food... Chips seemed the safest bet. We got talking to another couple who were travelling with a large party including young children, 75% of there party were floored with diarhea and sickness including their 3 year old grandaughter who ended up in hospital with dehydration. DONT RISK IT ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE VUNERABLE TRAVELLERS ie eldery, children etcMore
Riu Funanna ... no stress!
Just back from 10 days at the Riu Fuanna, lovely weather, very friendly people, food good quality (just a bit of variety would have been nice, especially at lunch) Beach lovely, sea can be rough it's true so not suitable for young children, quite a strong breeze which is nice but can fool you into getting burnt. First choice reps were always available but not really friendly and actually put us off two trips as they didn't like them! BBQ trip was ok but very formal. Entertainment - the team work very hard, the dancing is great and they are always smiling, however the constant miming to tracks can be a bit boring after a few days. Local area very safe to travel to for shopping, taxi into town just a few euros. Late check out rooms for late flights are 30 euros but can only be booked on the morning of departure, highly recommend block 5 for the beach / lunch bar / main pool, 5 minute pleasant walk to the main resturant and entertainment. We had room 5112. Which was nice as sea view and away from green areas ( Mozzies). Tip - take a tin of Raid fly killer and spray the room when you leave for dinner. Loads of sun beds on beach and pool Would recommend for a lazy time in the sun, not so much if you like plenty to do in the hotel and surrounding area. Flight back was on a Dreamliner which was a real bonus!More

Great place to go
Had 10 days there enjoyed my time other than go to the beach a few times I did nothing but lay by the pool, A bit windy for me but hassle free not a lot to do there . The hotel was good. The food was good. The staff are nice. The Pool was a good size and cold (nice in the heat). Never had a problem with the room so no complaints there.More
We had a great holiday here on Sal. The complex has got a little tatty and could do with a revamp but still a fantastic hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly, excellent bar facilities as wel as tea and coffee available 24 hours. Great entertainment team they worked really hard to please all. Towels swaps available for the pool all day. We had a kettle in the room that was nice to have. Fantastic pools and a lovely beech. All in all a great holiday and a nice hotel.More
