We have stayed at the Faro on several previous occasions, if it is your first stay at this hotel you may think it's pretty much perfect, however, after many years it is still very good but we can see where the hotel is trying to make savings.
Good points: The hotel is well maintained and the housekeeping is excellent. Staff are helpful and friendly. The food choice at dinner is not as varied as in previous years, however, it is good and of a high standard. The rooms are spacious and all have good views over the pool or sea. We have found they will always try to allocate you your room of choice. The air conditioing in our room was very poor and on the second day it broke, however, Begonia who works on reception very quickly moved us to another superior room with a sea view and very efficient air conditioning. We should mention Begonia is one of the best hotel receptionist's we have met on holiday, any problems and she will go out of her way to help. The Pool area is kept clean and is lovely and quiet, great for a relaxing holiday. The spa and indoor pool are worth a visit, ideal if you visit during the winter months when there are cloudy days. Hotel is in an ideal location overlooking the beach and just a few hundred metres away from the local bars and restaurants, Olympic restaurant recommended. The bar service in the hotel is excellent and thanks to Jose we have fond memories of many Champagne cocktails and Kirsch Royale cocktails, the perfect end to a perfect day sitting on the terrace sipping cocktails, wonderful. We celebrated out 30th wedding anniversary during our holiday and the hotel, (again I think it was Begonia) who arranged for Champagne to be delivery to our room on our anniversary. Not too far from the old town of Morro Jable which is lovely walk along the beach and over the pathway with has lots of beautiful flowers either side of it. There are some lovely restaurants in the town of Morro Jable and also some that overlook the ocean, Morro Jable is now pedestrianised which is much better.
Bad points. Not too many. There are not enough staff, especially during the breakfast period, tables are left cluttered and we often had to wait for tables to be cleared. No fault of the waiters, there just are not enough of them. The air conditioning should be checked it is working before rooms are allocated. The entertainment appears to be provided by the in-house staff so it's not brilliant, we chose to go out most evenings, our choice. Many of the staff are new this year, some appear to be young and inexperienced and it shows, that said, they do work extremely hard and are always willing to help and offer good service when they can.
On refelection we would recommend this hotel due to it's location, good food and cleanliness, there are some niggles but overall it is a good hotel, along with the Riu Palace in Jandia it is probably one of the best hotels to stay in whilst visiting Jandia.
