We had walked past this hotel many times and thought it was in an ideal location and would love to have breakfast watching the ocean. We were not disappointed. ALL the hotel staff were well trained, polite and very friendly and of smart appearance. The pool bar restaurant was reasonably priced and served good snack or A La Carte Food,... More

This was our first visit to the IFA Faro, and we had a wonderful week there. The hotel has light common areas, with great outdoor terraces for breakfast in the morning and for drinks in the evening. We stayed half-board which worked out well for us: the food was delicious with something for everybody from fresh salads and fish to... More

As we had been to Lanzarote many times, we decided to try Grand Canaries for a change. It was difficult to choose where to stay: Maspalomas or Playa del Ingles, but after lots of reading on-line reviews and asking the travel agents, we chose Maspalomas which turned out to be a lovely small up-market resort, but in Feb it was...

We chose the hotel for its location and the fact that it appears to be child-free. Both of these lived up to expectations. It has possibly the best location (on the sandy beach) and indeed had very few children staying. The staff are very friendly and the food was very good. However the hotel could do a lot better than... More

Very disappointing. Whilst not the hotel's fault that the weather was cloudy and unusually chilly, no effort was made to make guests feel valued. The pool, despite the manager's protestation, was unheated as was the whirlpool evidenced by very few guests braving them; they were as cold as the sea. The hotel next door has two heated pools and a... More

IFA Faro is architecturally more interesting than most Gran Canaria tourist developments. It is very well situated with only a pedestrian boardwalk separating it from miles of sandy beaches and acres of fascinating dunes to the left, and a paved pedestrian promenade extending for a couple of miles in the other direction. There is an attractive pool area on the... More

Lovely hotel in a very pleasant location beside the beach. The service was excellent, and our room, overlooking the lighthouse, was very comfortable. We found all the staff pleasant and helpful. During our stay I fell ill, and had to have a special diet for 10 days. This was provided without any fuss or problem, and I was grateful to... More

Boutique shops nearby for those who want them, walkers can stroll along the promenade or go for miles along the beach and through the dunes. Buses nearby to other parts of the island. Wonderful sandy beach and good surfboarding mean resort has a good age range of visitors. Hotel... More
