Giving it an overall rating out of 5:
Chic, stylish and packed full of fun, the ClubHotel Riu Funana can’t fail to wow you with its first-class facilities and gorgeous, beachfront setting.
Your first impression of the ClubHotel Riu Funana is that of a majestic, Moorish sand palace. Step inside and you’ll find yourself transported to an impressive oasis of cool elegance.
A stylishly landscaped open-air square sits at the centre of the spacious lobby, encircled by Mediterranean-style tiled flooring, cushioned wicker chairs and Arabesque chandeliers. Reminiscent of a magnificent conservatory, it’s laced with boutiques and souvenir shops and spills outside onto a bar terrace.
Just around the corner, a world of tempting cuisine awaits you, from the inviting buffet restaurant to the more intimate Cape Verdian specialities restaurant, the Cabo Verde, serving both local dishes as well as international fare.
Spend lazy days at the lagoon-style pools, complete with swim-up bar so you can sit and sip fruity drinks. Just a few steps away is probably Sal’s most breathtaking strip of beach. Flanked with sunbeds, umbrellas, pagoda-style shaded areas and a decked bar area, sweeping shores slide into turquoise seas, idyllic for swimming, snorkelling and windsurfing.
With a strong emphasis on fun, there's a host of organised activities, from beach volleyball to a scuba diving trial in the pool and little ones are catered for at a smiling turtle shaped kids' club building with its own outdoor play area and pool.
If you prefer to do your own thing, why not treat yourself to an indulgent treatment or two at the Moroccan-inspired Renova Spa? Take advantage of its complimentary gym, sauna and stunning mosaic-design outdoor whirlpool bath.
Spacious, sophisticated rooms with splashes of Aztec colour and large bathrooms only add to the palatial flavour of this complex. With all this on your doorstep and use of the facilities at the ClubHotel Riu Garopa next door, you’re never short of things to do.
