Excellent hotel but their limited sea view room (as described by Thomson) in fact looked at a large white wall. Upgrading was easy, but at an unexpected cost. Very friendly staff and the whole hotel was clean. The roof terrace was quiet and had fantastic views.

Great hotel, with super helpful and friendry staff. Location is amazing, with direct access from the pool to the beach. Possibility for late checkout, delicious breakfast buffet, free car park right in front of the hotel. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Hotel, great location, excellent facilities and what made the holiday was the staff so friendly, polite and professional. Also the breakfast choice is great too! One tiny thing there were a few children, it was advertised as an adult only Hotel and people do pick that type of Hotel for a reason. I hope to go back next year... More

All staff were so friendly & helpful. Evening entertainment was very limited. Pool was well maintained and always clean. Room cleanliness was immaculate. Asked for a sea view room but 24/7 breakers means it is always noisy. AC was also noisy so choice was not to have AC and sweat for the night.

We booked this holiday last minute to celebrate my husbands birthday. Before arriving I had contacted the hotel in the hope of arranging a sea view room with which they were very helpful (Thank you Ricardo). First impressions when we arrived were very pleasing, the reception we were received was pleasant and efficient. Our room was very nice and immaculately... More

Our 3rd visit to IFA Faro and it continues to excel; the rooms, the food, the sunbed allocated for the week - all as brilliant as our last visits. Ideal location for a stroll to the beach and to the nearby shops and restaurants. A relaxing (virtually kid-free) break in the sunshine with great views across to the sea. We... More

Everything about our stay at the hotel was great. Breakfast was plentiful and every choice imaginable. The room was lovely, we upgraded to a suite with views of the sea and the dunes for a reasonable daily rate. The pool area is lovely and is on the beach front, so not at all far to wander to get beds on... More

beautiful location with early morning walks along a wide flat empty beach. Beach is busy later. The hotel staff are the jewel in the crown , always kind and cheery. The hotel kitchens are superb offering wonderful evening buffets. Upgrade to a front sea view room but don't expect a bath. Shower only in an open plan bath and toilet... More
