We booked to stay at this hotel for the week after Christmas. We found the staff to be a real strength of the hotel whether in the dining room, the bar, on reception or the cleaning staff; all were helpful and friendly. Our room was comfortable - a good shower, comfy bed and it was cleaned every day. I thought...

IFA Faro is a top location, one of the few (if not the only one) right on the beach front, as all others are separated by a road, or other structure (that's why the photos are deceiving for the hotels). Breakfasts were great. The staff was pretty good, although they seemed to miss a trick every so often. Not brand...

Received two quotes viz. e360 and/or e685 !!! per night If had been sensible would have stayed 20 nights. By contrast , lunch was superb and 1/2 YES! 1/2 the price in the adjacent restaurants . Room shown dingy and miniscule, Presume better rooms thro' package deals ie THOMSON @ ca. e685 PER WEEK. RIDICULOUS

It was a fantastic stay in IFA Faro. We had a room with a view over the ocean and the dunes on the 5th floor and the bed was also very good. Employees and staff were very friendly and the food is delicious! We are sure to come back. Diana and Willy from Belgium

All the positive items mentioned in other reviews were present in my stay. Loved the sun bed reservation system. Please other hotels take note! Breakfast was very good. Evening meal mediocre.

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
