This was our second visit here (and we don't usually like returning to the same place). It's a great hotel. Clean, comfortable, lovely breakfasts. Our room was on the west side, which had lovely views of the lighthouse and greens, as well as the sea. We asked for, and were given, a kettle, which was brilliant for making the occasional...

On a couple of previous visits to the area, we had seen the IFA Faro and decided it was worth a stay. We were not disappointed. The hotel and facilities were the best we had stayed in so far on Gran Canaria. Food was buffet style but good and very varied. I had the opportunity to try several things I...

Return visit as we enjoyed it so much last year, however our room , which is side sea view, overlooks rooftops of restaurants with extractors and air conditioning running all the time, cooking smells wafting our way too. Must be the worst located room here. I reported our disappointment to reception asking that Manager was made aware, still waiting for...

This is an Adults Only hotel and caters mainly to the German market. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast buffets are vast and with a wide range. Most people seem to take half board but we did enjoy the dinner buffets for 3 nights. The wines tend to be on the expensive side. The outdoor terraces are...

From the moment you walk into reception you feel like a welcome guest.There is a feeling of calm throughout the hotel, even by the pool. The sunbed reservation system is inspired, as it saves the morning rush to put towels on beds. Always plenty available. Food is of a high standard, with plenty of variety. The terrace facing the sea...

Our first visit to Gran Canaria and we chose this hotel based on sea front location and reviews, we were not disappointed. The sea view room was clean and comfortable and although we had to pay for the safe it was the most practical size we've seen in a hotel! Tea making equipment was not in the room but a...

Perfectly situated - turn left for small area of shops/cafes, long walk/early morning jog along the beach and to see sand dunes; turn right for promenade and more up-market shops and cafes. Staff very friendly and helpful. Some have limited English (majority of guests seemed to be German) but all seem to be keen to go the extra mile to...

This hotel fronts straight on to the beach, with only a pedestrian walkway between the hotel and the beach. We had wonderful views from our room on the 4th floor and could lie on the balcony and even in bed and see the sea and listen to the waves. The bed was, as requested, huge and very comfortable and the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The IFA Faro Hotel is ideally situated close to the sea, a very short distance from the very south beach of Maspalomas and its lighthouse, on the island of Gran Canaria. Thanks to its perfect location you can enjoy fantastic sea and beach views, with their 6 km of golden sand dunes which extend to Playa del Ingles. The hotel, with a 4 star category and elegant architecture underwent a complete interior, solarium and swimming pool reform in 2005 and 2006. These reforms give a mixture of an up to date image and provide a notably brighter atmosphere to the hotel. ... more   less
