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... More

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... More

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.... More

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...

Can't fault this hotel. From the moment we arrived until the (sad) moment we left we were well looked after. 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... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for choosing IFA Faro Hotel and thank you very much for sharing your personal experience on Trip Advisor hotels´ world reference.

The only recomendation I have is that the instructions for programming safe in room omits to tell you that after programming your PIN number you should press * button to save changes. This is not a complaint, but the only area of opportunity for improvement as our 10 day stay was fantastic in every way for a couple who wanted... More

Really nice hotel, in a fantastic location right on the beach front. I went during June/July 2014 and as much as I enjoyed it, it was quite isolating for an English person on the poolside and at breakfast, as the hotel had pretty much exclusively German guests. I think I heard one other English family speak during my entire 8-night... More

Our return visit confirmed all the excellence, high standards, very friendly staff, well-appointed rooms and extensive food choices that we enjoyed last year in this spotlessly clean oceanfront hotel.

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
