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

We have just returned from the hotel after a relaxing 11 days. The hotel has many excellent properties, the location, the staff, the fact that there are no children, the overall quality of the buffet meals and the general ambience. The location is exceptional, to the left there are the dunes and the walk along the beach to Playa del... More

Ifa Faro hotel in the main is as good as it says. Only one disappointment in respect of evening dinners not up to 4 star standard but otherwise the rest of the hotel is good. The décor in the room was a little jaded and there was peeling paintwork on the outside balcony of the main lobby which let it... More

The Good (Which is most of it): The location: right on the beach - literally. To the one side are some slightly cheesy shops and bars (including a fantastic beach front bar) and to the other side a load of upmarket shops and upmarket (they wish) bars and restaurants. The hotel is the most clean and tidy I've ever seen,... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel we had seen a number of times as we passed by on our way to the dunes. We walked around it 12 months ago and were impressed and decided to stay there. We were not disappointed and it lived up to our expectations! We upgraded to a sea view room, third floor,... More

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
