I would like to state that we got a discount for giving a review here but I don't think that affected my opinion. I stayed at the El Faro Hotel with my sister and we were very happy with our stay. The location is really stunning and the hotel is nice, the service is really good and includes a free... More

Amazed by the view as soon as we walked in. Had booked a garden room which was lovely but after seeing the view we decided to upgrade to a sea view. Once you come all that way it's a shame not to. We were glad we did, loved lying in bed hearing and watching the sea, plus gorgeous sunsets. The... More

The hotel is designed to look like a ship and you really can imagine you are on a cruise. Lovely lounges and decks overlooking the bay with beautiful mountain scenery all around. Unfortunately the weather was not ideal during my stay but on a fine day the swimming would be fabulous. Note: rocks not beaches but ample decks for sunbathing.... More

Great location with fantastic views. Sea view rooms are great. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. No real beach at the hotel but concrete platforms where you can relax in the sun and enter the sea. Good beaches close by but still are drive away - you will need a car and if you want... More

Our holiday started at this place and it couldn't get anymore better. The view over the sea is just magnificent. The rooms where full of space and nicely. Breakfast had many choices and very tasty croissants. You can just be there have a sit on their big terrace and relax all day long. Have a lay down at the pool... More

We stayed in El Faro Hotel for ten days from 14/08 until 24/08. We had a very nice room on the top floor with a beautiful see view. From our balcony, the sunsets are unforgetable ! By the morning, you wake up with the peaceful sound of the waves... The whole bedroom is very well furnished and very clean, we... More

Great place, away from tourist crowds. First impression after long travel - restaurant and bar all in white confirming great Italian style. Room (family room) was spacious and nicely decorated (lamps would need stronger fixing..). Great selection and fantastic view in the restaurant for breakfast.

The headland location by the old lighthouse is superb, and the swimming area by the rocks is better than a swimming pool. My only tip would be to avoid trying to find it in the dark unless you have satnav as roadsigns aren't English standard and can't be seen well at night.

We only stayed two nights but wished it were longer. The hotel was modern and clean with great facilities. We hired bikes and went cycling in the nearby park and hired snorkeling gear. Our room had a sea view and was clean and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant one night and although the food was good, the service was... More
