We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week holiday at the Hotel Funana, Cape Verde. The hotel and grounds were fabulous and spotlessly clean. The staff were the most friendly and obliging people I have ever met and nothing was too much trouble for them. The buffet restaurant provided a good selection of foods, all cooked fresh and frequently...

A welcoming drink was greatly appreciated as we queued at reception, but the whole check-in/registering process was very quick and, having placed labels on our luggage to...

We just got home from a 1 week holiday (7.5.13 - 14.5.13) at the Riu Funana and I honestly wish we’d booked 2 weeks. It was AMAZING!
