Weather was great during the time we were there although i think it's always windy (which is not a problem really). The food was amazing - i'm vegetarian and i never struggled with any of my meals. You got a lot included with the...

We've just returned from our holiday at Funana and we all had a thoroughly great time. We were in block 6 which we're not sure if those rooms were refurbished but it didn't matter as the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Perfectly positioned near the pool area and even a distant beach/sea view. The staff are lovely, work really...

Excellent hotel,attentive Staff,Good Food.The themed restaurant by reception (I can't remember the name) was Superb. Would definitely return to the same Hotel. The swimming pools were good and very clean. If anyone wants to take part in the activities,they are organised by enthusiastic, well trained Staff,who then perform in the evening entrtainment.

Rather confusing when booking,it wasn't explained that the hotel had been split into two parts since we had last stayed there. The Palace had been totally upgraded but the Funana (previously the Garopa) was much the same as it was 8 years ago.Having said that the Funana is still a very nice hotel, well maintained and well managed. The food...

My wife and I (and brother and sis in law) booked the Funana from 1 Feb. My brother and sis in law stayed 1 week. We had 12 days. For a 6 hour flight, I would recommend 12 days. The hotel is fabulous, stunning modern African decor with beautiful island style paintings and a jaw dropping reception with water feature...
