Good = food quality, staff, clean bedrooms, beach, activities. Ok = evening entertainment, Bad = accomodation blocks are like echo chambers, they need carpets or something to lower the noise, plus soft close doors. If thomson were honest and sold this hotel as 4 star then not be a typical sales fault of over promise and under deliver.

Clean sheets and towels daily in the bedrooms. Bedrooms - very...

We have just returned from Cape Verde and our experience was great. About Riu Funana: it is very close to Santa Maria, which is fantastic because you can have a short walk and admire the little town. In Santa Maria you can find great bars, good restaurants and plenty of souvenirs. The hotel is a good place to stay in....

Nice relaxing hotel near a stunning beach. The food is varied and of a good standard in the usual all inclusive buffet style. Entertainment is also the usual all inclusive dance shows etc so we tended not to bother but that's a personal choice and many people did watch the shows. Lovely open air jacuzzi in the sauna and spa...
