We are very very happy of our holidays in IFA Faro Hotel ! Excellent situation, very nice places around, superb swimmingpool at 10 meters from de beach! Personnal is always nice to welcome you, services are on the top, and everything is always clean. (also the FKK place on the roof.) An excellent choice for relax time.

The location is amazing! the hotel is on the beach and shops and restaurants are a stone throw away. There is a bus station 5mins up the road for any... More

My husband and I stayed at the IFA Faro hotel for one week from 14th July. We were on the second floor with a side sea view, which was worth the extra. Perfect location; right on the beach. The hotel is clean and the breakfasts (we went b & b) were buffet style of good quality with a wide range... More

This was our 3rd ten night stay in what we now just refer to as 'THE IFA'. Nothing has changed which,when everything is great,is itself great. The welcome, facilities, friendliness of staff, quality of food, cleanliness, rooms and large balconies and all in a fabulous sea-front setting are all the reasons that we endorse and confidently recommend THE IFA and...

Location, on beach, great pool, friendly helpful staff.close to many bars and restaurants. It's a classy hotel, not noisy or constant loud music. They are family orientated but no children's pool or play schemes. Activities for adult available, plus gym etc, but not forced to use them.would say a wide age range but more suited to couples. Liked the idea... More

Clean Hotel, nice situated at the sea and very good breakfast and dinner. Excellent service, good beds. The most I liked the nice view at the sea and the friendly personell. However, the hotel has old guests or young couples. For us, this was no problem.
