There's plenty in the way of entertainment at Riu Funana - you can focus on your health and wellbeing by trying out the gym, getting involved in RiuFit activities or indulging in some pampering at the Renova Spa. For the artistic types among you, there's RiuArt, the hotel's own creative workshops, and younger members of the family will love the RiuLand kids' club.

The varied dining scene at ClubHotel Riu Funana means you won't have to even think about leaving the resort if you don't want to. Espargos, the hotel's main restaurant, serves an international buffet and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When you want to mix things up, head to Mandalay for an Asian feast or Mambana for some local specialities. There's also Kulinarium, the onsite a la carte restaurant, for when you feel like something a bit special. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to bars too, with a stunning seven to choose from.
