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...

This four star hotel is located in the shadow of the famous lighthouse and right on the beach which is popular with windsurfers. The hotel itself is excellent with good sized rooms and fine bathrooms. Only one main restaurant, which is buffet, but the selection of food is large and of top quality. There is also a pool bar and...

Great hotel in the best position in Maspalomas, overlooking the beach. Sitting on the terrace, watching the surfers was wonderful. Our room (1140) was the cheapest and therefore had a view of the street. Initially I thought it was going to annoy me, particularly the delivery drivers arriving throughout the morning. Got used to it however and enjoyed watching the...

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...

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
