Upon our arrival, check-in was quick and staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't chose to up-grade to a sea view therefore our room didn't have a great view. However this did not bother us. The most important thing was that the room was spotlessly clean and serviced every day. The shower and bathroom were amazing. The room was carpeted...

We stayed 2 weeks at the IFA Faro (last week Julyand first week August). We couldn't fault the hotel and staff on anything. The room was well equipped and clean. The services are definitely matching the 4 stars. The food is excellent - same quality as the Seaside Hotel chain (which is a reference in Gran Canaria). The location is...

Stayed here in 2013, superb location, fantastic hotel. The food was top quality and the staff went out of their way to make the stay the best we had. The room was spotless and the maids made sure it was kept in tip top condition. Our only regret is that we were unable to get a room here when we...

My husband and I stayed at Ifa Faro 15th - 26th July and from check-in we loved it!! The room was clean and spacious with a well appointed bathroom and baloncy. The location too was perfect for us, bordering as it does on Meloneras.....a shopper's dream! Staff in the hotel were polite, courteous and kind; nothing was too much trouble....

Super hotel with great location right on the beach , all on the flat and close to many restaurants and shops. Hotel caters mainly for adults [no kids' clubs or children's pool] and had very few British people staying there [mainly German and Spanish guests aged over 40!] One big, warm pool only, but loungers are reserved for you when...

Check-in was efficient and we were allocated a side-view room which was consisted of a very large and comfy bed, large bathroom. Room was cleaned and fresh towels every day by a very friendly cleaner. Breakfast was one of 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
