Official TUI Rating

The castle-like Riu Funana enjoys a great location right by a powder-soft beach. It is just a short drive to the centre of Sal. Sal is part of Cape Verde which is a group of 10 islands located off the west coast of Africa. The airport on Sal is just a 30-minute coach transfer to the hotel.


At the hotel, there is a huge lagoon pool which has an equally huge terrace that is dotted with palms, sunloungers and parasols. At the swim-up bar you can enjoy a cocktail under a Sydney Opera House-esque roof. Over at the beach, there is a bar and lines of sun loungers. 

There is another outdoor pool plus a children’s pool. Guests have access to the neighbouring Splash Water World. This is just 100m away at the Riu Palace Santa Maria. This is open 6 times a week and has a range of slides with something for all ages. Some of the slides have age and height restrictions.
